I'm still planning on finishing what I started in the Cartographer_Sidelist. I've been threatening to do so for a while, but RL has kept me very busy (that and my account was either hacked or Bliz shafted me when I changed my password a few weeks back because suddenly my inv is almost empty, my gear is all messed up and almost all my gold is gone--a disincentive for playing until it's resolved).
I think JaedxRapture was considering working on something like a sidelist also.

Oct 24, 2007Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOnsQuote from HunterZ »
been eagerly awaiting the feature for some time. is that project dead? no updates since July:
Lots going on in personal life; haven't actually played or worked on addons since end of July. Planning to get back to it as soon as I can but can't promise a specific date :( Looks like I'll also have to catch up on the state-of-the-art as far as Rock/Ace3 go...
Oct 15, 2007Seconded; I haven't even used it yet, but this is a thing of beauty and makes me want to get back to playing the game again. :) Never thought I'd see someone solving traveling salesman problems in WoW--perfect use of coroutines too.Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
Oct 9, 2007Can you use a waypoint to accomplish the same thing? Set a waypoint at your destination and you'll get an arrow on your screen pointing in the direction you need to go. Facing in that direction and then activating autorun should do it. This has the added benefit that you don't need the map open to see if you're still on track.Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
Aug 18, 2007The only map-related addon I'm aware of that has a side list of map notes is MetaMap. There may, of course, be others I am unaware of.Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
That said, I'm (too slowly) working on a note sidelist for Cartographer: http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php?topic=6802.0
It's still pretty useless, but it's a work in progress. My WoW-time is limited right now (I can't install it on the only computer I have access to for the next week or so), but I'll get to it.
Aug 18, 2007_ForgeUser68415 posted a message on Cartographer Notes - feature request - side note text columnI haven't forgotten about this--as mentioned above, new job, new house (new life) are keeping me busy. I'm living out of a hotel right now while the house is finished and busy enough that I don't have the bandwidth for this at this moment. I will get back to it soon, though--thanks for the reminders :)Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
Jul 25, 2007Released v0.3.Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
- support /nt alias for /ctnt slash command
- support arbitrary Creator for new notes (default is still "NoteTarget" and is configurable via the Cartographer_NoteTarget submenu)
- support arbitrary note info text passed in as argument to the slash command

I use notes to mark both mobs, and locations - it would be awesome if NoteTarget could somehow default to placing a note with the current location as its value if no target is specified? And if one could specify the default icon to use for these kinds of notes?
What do you mean by the value of the current location? There are a few ways that could be interpreted--and I'm not sure which you are referring to, nor which would make sense (after all, you're already looking at the map in order to see the note you had created so you can see the location it is in).
Also, current NoteTarget sets the "creator" of the notes as the addon - I quite like the feature where it's the name of the character creating the note instead, since it allows me to see which of my characters have made and marked certain discoveries - It works a little like a travelogue of where I've been on my numerous alts.
This is possible, and not terribly different in functionality from how things work now (the NoteTarget notes end up in the regular note database anyway (i.e. the one used when you Ctrl-RightClick on the map and create a new note). Will probably commit this change (probably with an option in case people want the same default creator for all NoteTarget notes).
Jul 23, 2007I suspect CJNyfalt means a database of all flight masters and inns: FuBar_ToFu and InFlight both only record the location of the flight master once you've talked to it.Posted in: Addon Ideas
I've got the data for a nice cartographer module that will show notes for all of the flight-masters, but haven't yet had time to wrap an addon around it. Inns is a handy idea too.
Jul 19, 2007_ForgeUser68415 posted a message on Cartographer Notes - feature request - side note text columnI started work on this. Right now, it's only available via branch in SVN, since it's ultra-low on features, but had grown to the point where I should start committing work.Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOns
Currently, you can't do anything useful with it: all it does is present a list of notes. Next up: interacting with the list (basically, I want the same interaction with notes on the map as with notes in the list).
I won't promise speedy development on this (am moving cross-country and starting a new job in two weeks), but I won't let it languish and die, either :)

Looking for a way to change the window transparency of the Violation window, and I can't seem to find it in the config, am I missing it, or is there no easy way to do so?
Any leads on where in the code it is, if it's not in the config?
There isn't an options for it (yet?). I like to set the frame's alpha also. You can do so by adding a 4th parameter (number between 0 and 1, 1 is fully opaque, 0 is fully transparent) to f:SetBackdropColor(24/255, 24/255, 24/255) (around line 2815 in Violation.lua).
Jul 16, 2007I'm adding wrap-enabled lines with icons to a tablet, but the tablet width does not seem to account for the presence of the icon if the text overflows to the next line. This is independent of the scroll-bar overlap (http://www.wowace.com/forums/index.php?topic=6072.0)--a separate annoyance, but one that does not result in unreadable text. In this case, the line text's rightmost pixels (by eye, the width of the line's icon) are not visible at all.Posted in: Libraries
I can look into fixing this, but I'm hopeful someone more immediately familiar with the tablet code can see this and know more quickly than I what to change.
