Cartographer is my replacement for AlphaMap/MetaMap/etc.
It is modular and very efficient.
It currently has 9 modules, all independent and modularized from one another:
Battlegrounds - allows you to view battlegrounds outside of the zone.
Coordinates - adds coordinates to the bottom of the world map of the player and the cursor.
Foglight - Shows unexplored areas on the map. replacement for MozzFullWorldMap or Unexplorer. Much more efficient, though.
Group Colors - turns all your party's and your raid's POIs into circles colored based on class, and shows a number on them based on their raid group.
Instance Maps - shows maps of instances.
Look 'n' Feel - allows you to change the transparency, position, and scale of the world map.
Notes - lets you put notes on the map, similar to MapNotes.
Professions - automatically tracks herbs and minerals.
Zone Info - on hovering over a zone, it will show the levels of the zone, the instances in the zone, their levels, and the number of men the instance is made for (e.g. 5-man, 40-man).
Please use this and test this. It works in vanilla and TBC.
I hope there will be a "Waypoint" module like the WP feature in MetaMap. I love being able to enter coordinates copied from the web (ex. Thottbot) and getting an arrow on screen or the minimap to guide me to that location.
The Unhider module does have transparency and color settings for the 'hidden' parts of the map.
This is different from the Unhider (or in AlphaMap, MozzFullWorldMap) (and I think AlphaMap's treats the map a little differently to do this) - the parts of the map rectangle that aren't used by the current map, such as the far side of the mountains, deep water or whatever, are erased. In other words, whatever areas of the map window you can never get to, explored or not, are hidden. The resulting shape is amorphous, and less of an occlusion of the UI.
Flarin, I do the same thing. Makes for a stylish screenshot sometimes too, with a film noir style overlay of the map ...

I have tried two methods:
1. I use a common Ace2 library from the SVN - its the !!!Libs folder so I deleted your libs folder
2. I tried leaving your libs folder in place- save errors
The 16308 release does not have this issue. The 16310 has the issue.
It really conflicts with a bunch of mods - many Fubar mods fail to load at all.
