Hi. Any map that has overlays available will have "Select Overlay" text displayed on the top, just to the right of the map list. Just hover the mouse over the "Select Overlay" text and you will get the option to display/hide each overlay that is available for that map. If "Select Overlay" is not displayed it is because there are no overlays, Berry's or others, for that map.

EDIT: If you are referring to the floating legend that displays when Berry's overlays are displayed, if you minimize it, there will be an icon in the lower right corner of the map for redisplaying the legend.

Short answer, you need to copy the PluginData folder (the Plugins folder is just the source files, no settings/data).

Long answer:
The "...Documents\The Lord of the Rings\Plugins" folder only contains the source code for plugins, that is, the files that are published by the author. The data is stored in .plugindata files under the "...Documents\The Lord of the Rings\PluginData" folder in a hierarchical structure of subfolders. The first tier of subfolders are the account name (no actual files here, just subfolders, one for each account that has had plugin data saved). The next tier are servers and the "AllServers" folder which are server-wide. The last tier are characters and the "AllCharacters" folder which are character-wide. Plugins can save/read data at any tier, but only for the folder specific for the server/character or the "All" folder (note, there is no "AllAccounts" folder). MoorMap saves files in many different folders depending on the type of data and at what scope it is relevant. All of the MoorMap plugindata files WILL start with "MM" so, if you only want to copy your MoorMap settings/data, you will want to only copy .plugindata files that start with "MM". Be sure to copy them to a subfolder with the same path/name as the one they came from. However, if you simply want to copy all settings/data for all plugins from one computer to another, simply copy the entire "...Documents\The Lord of the Rings\PluginData" folder.

NOTE: Be sure to set the permissions correctly afterwards or some funky stuff can happen or, to avoid that, you can copy them from the source to a neutral, user owned folder on the destination, like "c:\mytempfiles" and then, copy them from that folder to their final destination (that should eliminate any user specific permissions issues). If you are using an intermediate media like a flash drive that step is usually unnecessary since most flash drives use FAT instead of NTFS so permissions info is not stored.

FWIW, there are many files that are used to implement the treasure caches and they are all in the folder, "...PluginData\serverName\AllCharacters" where serverName is the name of the server, like "Landroval". The need for multiple files has to do with keeping a minimum of data in memory at any one time, loading the minimum data necessary when swapping maps, protecting that data from save failures due to client crashes, and working around the fact that LotRO doesn't allow simple real-time access to .plugindata files (so I have to jump through a few hoops to make it work).

What I meant was the possibility of adding own custom treasure cache locations as feature (without having to mess with the code), as I found not all are shown in MoorMap (Ered Mithrin springs to my mind). But thanks a lot anyway, I'll just wait for updates.

Now to my question: Is it possible to add custom treasure locations that behave in the same way as the others do, so they track which one you've already discovered? And would it be possible in the same way to convert certain pois like dwarf markers in the Iron Hills so you can check if they have already been discovered?
Hi, thanks for the comment and question.

Known issue

The coordinates for the maps of the Hiddenhoard (Caverns of Clovengap, Ibkermazal, and Mind of the Frost-heart) are calculated incorrectly in ver 1.53. This will be corrected in the next version.

Example
Unfortunately, Quest and Deed data are not exposed to Lua so it is not possible to implement a tracker.

That's a shame, thanks for responding.

Hi,

You have misunderstood the feature. Ore/Wood node locations are not exposed to Lua so, instead, MoorMap allows you to track the locations as you come across them. The Quick Annotation tool allows you to simply stand next to a node, target it (so MoorMap knows what kind of node you are marking) and click the tool. MoorMap will be able to parse your location from the chat window and automatically adds a custom annotation to your copy of the map indicating what type of node and its location. This can be used to help you remember which types of nodes are on which maps and what areas have the densest concentrations of nodes.

Custom Annotation sharing is not yet available in MoorMap, but, if you also have TerrainMap, it has the ability to share CustomAnnotations with other users and they automatically update in MoorMap - unfortunately, annotations are still only shared one at a time so you would have to click each one (when implemented in MoorMap there will be an option for sharing all custom annotations for an entire map, no anticipated release date for that feature though).

Ah, I can pount it off the side of the screen almost entirely, nice.
Thanks for the feedback. The next version of MoorMap will include a Minimize button in the lop left of the Deed Overlay Legend. When minimized, the legend will appear as an icon in the bottom right of the map. Clicking the icon will redisplay the legend. I have not decided whether to add an optional Opacity control for the legend, but I believe the minimized functionality will suit your needs.
