Totem Radii

HudMap is still beta!

I'd love for people to start using it, chewing on it, trying it out. Tell me what you like, what you don't, what breaks, and what you'd like to see. Bugs are to be expected, though it's fairly stable at this point. There are a lot of directions that the mod could go, and I'd love feedback.

Additionally, if you play WoW in a non-English language, you're invited to help by localizing HudMap into your client's language. We need translators!

What is it?

HudMap is an addon that provides a true heads-up tactical display of an encounter, with raid member positions, range data, debuff area-of-effect indicators, and more.

Additionally, HudMap ships with totem radius indicators. In general, if you want to do range or player-to-player directional stuff, HudMap's your huckleberry.


How do I toggle the HUD?

Left-click the LibDataBroker icon, or set a key binding in the HudMap options to toggle the map on and off.

Can I move or resize the HUD?

Absolutely. Right-click on the LibDataBroker icon, or go to Interface Options -> AddOns -> HudMap -> Adaptive Zoom -> Set Area. This will let you define the location and size of the map.

Can I turn [specific feature] off?

Yes! HudMap is very flexible. Though it comes with some functionality turned on, there are lots of options and you can tweak it to your preferences to show as much or as little as you'd like.

How do I request a new feature?

Just create a feature request ticket. That's the best way to ask for new functionality!

Can I use this in to replace AVRe? Possibly. You can use it in a similar manner, though it definitely takes a very different approach to information display. HudMap is designed to give you proximity awareness of your partymates and areas that are potentially hazardous due to proximity or some other effect that boss mods generally warn you about. In that sense, yes, it's a replacement.

However, HudMap is not going to let you annotate the world, add additional data over physical locations, or let you draw obscene pictures on Arthas before you pull him. HudMap does nothing to emulate or project 3D data, and never will. Additionally, feature parity is not a goal of the project - some information is better presented in AVR than it will ever be in HudMap, and I'm not going to try to replicate that. Other data will fit HudMap better naturally, and those pieces will be actively pursued.

Is this addon going to get banned because Blizzard doesn't like AVR?

To head off the inevitable, I've already asked Blizzard directly if this is kosher in light of the AVR breakage. They have not indicated that it is a violation of the rules. Until they indicate otherwise, HudMap will be developed and updated. The impression I get is that Blizzard's primary complaint was with AVR's ability to draw pseudo-3D images over the game world, which is outside of the scope of what the UI was intended to be able to do. HudMap doesn't do any of that.

Extending HudMap

Have an idea for a range feature? It's easy to implement one. Just see modules\example.lua for a simple framework upon which you can build your own modules.

    I want to take over this project.But I don't know how to do that. If any one want a 6.0 compatible version, I have a test build.

    Why was this project abandoned? I see great potential here.

    Yes, I removed it because the wowace packaging doesn't works and produces only a nolib and no standard-version of the addon. I use it for my own now and if someone of the developers are interested I send them the sources.

    I repaired the most things don't work and added the battleground Gilneas. Most of the things work, I don't see any errors any more.

    Well I HOPE this is still alive, because it has great potential <3

    I do have to say the one annoying thing about it, with it enabled, every time I log in or /reload in game I completely freeze up for about 3 minutes. Apart from that though no problems, lol :P
