Unfortunately, this would be pretty low priority for me as I no longer play LotRO and allocate very little time to plugin maintenance and updates so even if it gets to the ToDo list it may never actually get implemented.
Would it be at all possible to shift the overlay a few pixels one way or the other in order to make it easier to click on the waypoints the numbers are covering?

The Berry's Deeds Data numbers are actually text in Verdana 20pt font. Since they aren't images, they can't be resized that way. I may look into allowing a different font size but that comes with it's own complications (Turbine never implemented a font-metrics class so we're stuck using Lua based work-arounds to determine things like control size when resizing fonts).

Yes, you can easily do this using a custom icon.

Yes, you can easily do this using a custom icon. Icons can be .jpg or .tga files - if you use a .tga file, you can specify a transparency color too, so you could make a smaller icon thus making it have a smaller impact. To specify a custom icon, first create a .tga file using your favorite paint program - I happen to use paint.net for quick icon stuff. You may want to create a "selected" version that shows a highlighted border and a small version for the filter list. Typically the two larger icons are 32x32 or 30x30 and the smaller version is 16x16 or 15x15. Save the files in the
"The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\GaranStuff\MoorMap\Resources" folder under your documents folder. Do not just edit the existing icons as your custom icons would get wiped out by any future updates to the plugin. Note, the icons are displayed centered on their coordinates, so center the non-transparent part of the icon. You can make your icon any size you like but you should try to stay at or below 32x32 (in your case you want it smaller so that's no problem)

To assign the custom icons, load the plugin, open the map and click the filter button, top left of map, third button from the left. In the filter list, right click on the icon you want to override and click "Change Icon". In the Icon Maintenance window, enter just the filename of the image(s) you created as the path is fixed. Click Save and you should immediately see your changes applied to the map and filter list. Note. in the Icon Maintenance window, most of the default icons use a resource ID number for one of the built-in icons so they show as numbers instead of a filename - if you ever need to go back to the built-in icons, just open the Icon Maintenance window and click "Restore Default" for the affected icon and then click Save to save the original defaults.

Hi. Good catch, I accidentally duplicated the location of Thurindol as Thargelon which is really odd since one is an NPC and the other is a place :P

Let me know if you find any more The fix will probably be published after New Years.

Update 1.33 contains a bug fix for the update bug reported by Altair7 and Tappo in 1.32

If 1.32 was working correctly for you, you can skip downloading 1.33

Yes, was running previous version and updated using Plugin Compendium. Moormap is set to auto-load using built-in plugin manager. I'm using the English version.

Yes, that worked. Thanks. And thanks for all your work over the years on this plugin. It's very useful.
Thanks for the info. Definitely something odd going on. Despite the workaround fixing it, I need to dig further into why the update doesn't always work.

I had the same issues as Altair7, fixed by reloading default data, ty
I never ran MoorMapLoader manually or set it to autoload
I updated from previous version using Plugin Compendium
MoorMap is loaded by another Plugin: Compendium by lunarwater, which loads MoorMap with
Code:
Turbine.PluginManager.LoadPlugin("MoorMap");
Client language is EN
Thanks for the additional info, it should help replicate the problem.

Hi,

This sounds like you may have set the MoorMapLoader plugin to load automatically or launched it manually. Unfortunately, that will corrupt the loading of the default data, including map definitions (even though there are warnings in the install instructions I am still looking into a way to prevent this corruption because it is a common mistake but haven't had time yet). Double check that it is NOT set to load automatically as that plugin is used internally by MoorMap (as indicated in the description in the plugin manager and the install instructions here on the download page). The MoorMap plugin is run by loading "MoorMap" either in the manager or manually.

If you did not accidentally run MoorMapLoader then there may indeed be a bug. To help replicate it I need a little more info. Were you running a version previously or was this a new install? How did you install MoorMap (manually or using Plugin Compendium)? How did you first load MoorMap, with a manager (either built-in or Bootstrap or other plugin manager) or manually using the /plugin load command? Also, what client language are you using, EN, DE or FR?

Once you are sure that MoorMapLoader is not running (either automatically through the manager or manually), you should be able to fix your copy by forcing a reload of the default data. The easiest way is to open the plugin, right click on the map, click "Add Annotation" and then click "Reload Defaults" at the bottom of the Annotation window. That should repair all of the map definitions as well as the default annotations and overlays.

Let me know how it turns out.

Ver 1.32 is now available with Mordor and update 19 data.

The only known issue is that Turbine made Pelennor (After Battle) zoom out to March of the King but it seems that since North Ithilien is totally included in March of the King and Pelennor is totally included in North Ithilien that it should zoom out to North Ithilien and then to March of the King so that is how MoorMap works.
