Addon for coordinates?

Post#1 » Tue Oct 03, 2017 10:26 am

Heja there,
when you open the map, there is a set of coordinates at the right side giving you the exact location of your mouse pointer on the map. And sooner or later you can find the point on the map youre looking for. In my case, later :roll:
I never can figure out how to move the mouse, do the numbers on the first coordinates shrink when i go up...or down... or was it right...left?

Is there an addon out there that helps with coordinates? Either like entering numbers and it give you the point on the map... or laying a grid over the map with rough coordinate numbers... or anything like that?
Is there a way to see the coordinates on the normal ui outside the map? I use cmap in my ui, cause i like the square map more than the vanilla round one, but coordinates i dont get anywhere on both.

Any hint would be appreciated - but please no big ui collection with dozens of things i dont need nor want.

When you mouseover Cmap anywhere in zoom out mode (whole zone map in frame) coords are showns where was the name of zone.

The addon itself should not be that hard to do, the question is how it should be represented visually on the screen

Maybe overlay on big map window?

Would it be possible with the hopeful AddOn to be able to use custom way-points with an on-screen map edge marker to help route yourself to the custom point?

Thanks for the answers. My initial question was to find a given coordinate at the map more easy. The luxury variation would be to enter coordinates and the addon shows you the point on the map. But it would be great to just have the possibility to maneuver across the map with the pointer more easy. Ofc it would be phantastic to be able to mark a point on the map and to get some kind of arrow pointer in the ui. I remember something like that from that other mmo out there, forgot the name :lol:

@ Sulle: It was just a question for making things easier for me, there is no actual important need to occupy your time with programming. Im just a lazy git :roll: And i thought perhaps there would be an addon already.

One number is X axis, the other is Y. Move mouse horizontally (or vertically) to find out which one is which.
How hard is that? ;)

Yes, thats exactly what i had in mind :D

That is pretty sweet. Are you able to place a marker on the mini-map as well?
