Discuss this and other Mother's UI pieces here
I think this is finally ready for public consumption. It's certainly the biggest project I've yet worked on, so it's initial release is bound to have a few problems. Hopefully they're minimal.
The map spoiler project is a companion for eq2map. It is a seperate window which has an alphabetical list of all the POIs on the eq2map divided by type. If you've ever tried to mouse over every icon on the map trying to locate the next step of a quest, or a certain NPC, then you have a very good idea why this project was started.
Clicking on a POI in the list will generate a waypoint to that POI.
The POIs are pulled from the eq2map database, so submitting a point to eq2map will find it's way to the map spoiler. There is currently no auto-update for map spoiler. Anyone who wants to help me write one is welcome to PM me.
This mod uses eq2map plug-in slot 7. I don't believe anything else is using it.
You will need to add the line
to your eq2ui_mainhud.xml file just below the line that says
The above is important!
Most of the problems people have had installing the map spoiler have come from the extra include line not getting added, or it getting added and then subsequently removed by another UI mod. If you're seeing a black window with no controls (with or without blue text) double check the include. The zip file now includes "eq2ui_mainhud_example.xml". If you do not have any other mods that modify "eq2ui_mainhud.xml", you can just right-click the eq2ui_mainhud_example.xml and rename it to eq2ui_mainhud.xml.
Spoiler page doesn't populate the first time you open the map window. Press 'M' a few times to open and close it and the window should populate.
Spoiler page doesn't always change when you zone. This doesn't happen all the time, so it's hard to troubleshoot.
Please let me know what you think.
Included missing eq2ui_mainhud_example.xml file
Fixed to work with EoF. Added EoF POIs.
I was defeated by a single character. Which is why it took so long to fix! But it appears working now. Thanks for the patience.
Updated POIs for TFD zones. (finally, I know
Updated POIs for KoS zones.
Updated POIs for outdoor KoS zones.
Now example_eq2ui_mainhud.xml included with zip file.
Support for additional zones including the outdoor KoS zones.
Confirmed to work with
Fetish Nightfall (thanks MoonDeville for testing and reporting)
ThorUI (thanks Aeloris for testing and reporting)
ProfitUI II (thanks Pixi)
If you use any UI mods that plug-in to or change/reskin EQ2MAP and see that the map spoiler works (or does not work) with them, drop a message and I'll update the confirmed list. (I don't expect any problems, but a definitive "Yes" never hurts.)
Manual Spoiler Submission
The map spoiler project has the ability to accept manually written spoilers. (For example with step by step guides for quest series arranged chronologically.) If you would like to submit one for a zone, please contact me and I will provide you with the extreemely simple text format in which manual spoilers should be written. No XML knowledge required.
