Smaller PoI Icons and a Player Arrow that Actually Points!
 
Description
First and foremost, this file *only* works if you're using EQ2MAP. (And if you're not, you should be!) I would have uploaded it specifically as an add-on, but couldn't find a way to do so.

The main change I've made is that I've reduced the size of the PoI icons, which helps to reduce the appearance of overwhelming "clutter" in some zones. I've also replaced the player and group member icons with those from Ger's "Alternate PoI Icons" set. (The arrow marking your own location now clearly points in the direction you're facing.) Finally, I've reduced the size of the "X" that marks your tracking target, if you're a scout, or your selected waypoint, no matter who you are.

The download contains just one file, the "images/icons/icon_map3.dds" file. Simply replace the one you already have in your UI folder with the one in the download. If you decide you don't like the changes, after all, just delete the file, and EQ2MAP will automatically restore the default version for you.

========================================

VERSION HISTORY:

060129 - UPDATE - Added blue and white "X" markers, as in the default version of the icon_map3.dds file.

060122 - ORIGINAL RELEASE

========================================

Please post any comments, suggestions or questions on the appropriate forum thread, and not here. That way, I'll know as soon as I visit that new comments exist. Thanks!

Yes, you can replace the icon_map3.dds file after the EQ2MAP updater has run, but before the game itself launches. It's just a pain to have to do that every time you load the game.

But as I said, the EQ2MAP folk have mentioned that they'll be resetting the updater *not* to mess with existing skin files in a week or so, so it's a short-lived problem.

Due to the extensive updates made today to EQ2MAP, the updater is currently overwriting *all* files. That means that if you're trying to use my modified icon_map3.dds file, well, it won't work. But the change to the updater is only temporary, to make sure all users have up-to-date files. In a week or so, the folk behind EQ2MAP will be setting it to again only update "skin" files that are missing, and so modifications such as mine will again work.
