I realised, after posting, that no-one would want to install a 'dead' mod to see it's one cool feature - AND that I miss that 'narrow mode' BG map a lot...
Sooooo - I've not much experience with mods other than VERY simple ones, but I've worked out how to rip out most of the code in BFC I wasn't interested in/which didn't work - and I've packaged up a seemingly working mod which ONLY adds the minimap functionality (narrow mode and 'in combat' and 'dead' map markers) - attached below in zip form.
There's probably still a tonne of stuff in there doing nothing (raid group markers are in there but not working atm for example) - but I got it from 250kb to just 75kb of memory and it still works (amazingly!)- so I'm pretty pleased :)
What this does with the minimap would be a GREAT addon to Cartographer tho - it really, really would - take a peek and tell me what you think - screenies of it in normal (with map markers) and 'narrow' (awesome mode) attached also.

Jun 11, 2008_ForgeUser50168 posted a message on Feature Idea: Battlefield Commander-stype 'zoomed' BG MinimapA while back there was a mod called Battlefield Commander - it's still on Curse but hasn't been updated in many moons.Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
One of it's VERY neat features was to provide the option to 'zoom' into the BG Minimap - cutting off all the extraneous artwork that those maps have and just showing the 'action'.
I think this would be a GREAT thing to integrate into Cartographer tbh - it makes the map 100% more useful...
Jun 11, 2008Feature Request: A quick scan of this thread/the wiki/the options and I can't see if this is possible so...Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
I'd like the ability to hide the minimap in BGs, Instances etc. if possible - as the minimap is of little use to me in those and I could put the BG Minimap or Damage Meters etc. in it's place.
I know about mods like Tooogle but just being able to auto-hide the minimap (even if it were a button to do it) would be nice?
Jun 10, 2008It does seem FBOH has some issues with Guild Banks - namely that it gets horribly out-of-sync with what's in them quite easily.Posted in: General AddOns
I had 2 Greater Planar Essences (GPs) in my guild bank - I put another 20 in - FBOH decided there were 22 in there - so far so good (tho they never show up on the tooltip as '22 in Guild Bank'?).
I removed some (shift-clicking one of the stacks) - I got them, they appeared in my 'bags' but FBOH still thinks they're all in the Guild Bank...
I removed all the stacks from the Guild Bank - they're now all in my bags AND the guild bank too - according to FBOH.
I can't see a way of fixing this atm - at least not without having to reload the bank/inventory of all my chars after a reset?
I'm just going to disable anything Guildbank related for now I think...
Jun 10, 2008I'm liking this mod a LOT - I have a couple of suggestions if I may tho...Posted in: General AddOns
It would be nice to have a way of filtering by 'not appearing in view [viewname]' if that would be possible? I'd like a way of making another 'catchall' page in effect (as with the Main Bag View)...
It would be nice to be able to specify faction within the Character Filter (so I can see all my Horde characters items on 1 server - but not Alliance characters items).
Also a few items don't seem to fall into the correct categories (Netherwing Crystals aren't considered quest items for example) - is this is Blizzard problem,ACE problems or something in the mod itself (not using the PT filter for this).
