I got the files, thank you. Unfortunately, initial testing shows the map files are not corrupted but I haven't finished inspecting the annotations (you've got a LOT of them ). I did notice that you are still using version 1.06, so I tested your files with 1.06 and 1.07 and everything worked perfectly. So now I'm left with an interesting puzzle. I'm going to keep digging - I will probably have to send you a modified version of 1.06 with additional debugging information. Please do NOT download 1.07 (this only applies to Crackpot370) until I get a chance to have you run the debug version of 1.06 since upgrading to 1.07 might temporarily mask whatever the underlying problem is.

Re: North Downs Problem

If you still have the instructions I PM'd you on emailing me your plugin data, would you mind zipping that up again and emailing it to me so that I can examine your data files and determine whether in fact any corruption has occurred - and if it has, hopefully backtrack the cause.

I still have it. Will send it off to you soon.

I went to the same exact coordinates and was able to add annotations just fine. Something peculiar is occuring on your system (and possibly lots of others ). It occurs to me that somehow your map data files may have gotten corrupted so that the plugin thinks the maps overlap when they actually don't. If you still have the instructions I PM'd you on emailing me your plugin data, would you mind zipping that up again and emailing it to me so that I can examine your data files and determine whether in fact any corruption has occurred - and if it has, hopefully backtrack the cause. If you need new instructions on which folder to zip or the address to send it to, just PM me here and I will get that to you.

I checked your map. It did not show this deposit. It did show
all the ones I'd mapped/prospected further north.


Also, just noticed that when I stopped & added a Heavy Yew to
the map for when my Forester comes that way, it did:

Heavy Yew Branches added to map Eriador
Heavy Yew Branches added to map Bree-land
Heavy Yew Branches added to map The Shire

Haven't noticedit do that before. I'll keep an eye out for
it in the future though.
The "xxx added to map yyy" and "xxx already at these coordinates on map yyy" messages have been there since version 1.03 when the quick annotation control was first released. It sounds as though you accidentally double clicked the icon but I am continuing to investigate. That message , "xxx already at these coordinates on map yyy" (resource#171) can only be generated if a duplicate annotation (having the same map, NW coord, EW coord, name and description) is found. I've double checked the duplicate detection code (which hasn't been changed since 1.03) and there's no bug there, so the only other possibility is that the data for the new annotation was somehow incorrect.

I am curious about why you got the message regarding the Shire since I didn't think the Shire parchment border overlapped as far as Nan Wathren but I will have to double check that to be sure. Otherwise it sounds as if the coordinates from the Quick Annotation window were incorrect which would imply that the ;loc command generated a bad location. I've got some more testing to do since there is still some question about the message that was generated.

There is a known flaw in the way that custom annotations are merged with existing custom annotations when a map overlaps but this would not generate the symptoms you reported. If the overlapping map has been viewed recently and it's custom annotations split out of the global table, then there is no way to detect the duplication, so a duplicate can be generated. I will have a fix for this is 1.08, I will check when loading the global table whether there is a duplicate and remove it at that time. However, this bug would not cause an erroneous display of the duplicate message, it would in fact supress that message when in some cases it should be displayed.

One of the things in the works which would eliminate the need to save hundreds (or thousands) of node locations is user modifiable overlays. Basically the idea is you would select the "Prospecting Nodes" overlay and it would add a transparent layer over the map which would have the regions where nodes exist colored (since the user would make the overlay, the colors could be coded by type, etc) to show the region where nodes spawn. That way, one TGA image would take the place of hundreds of custom annotations. Unfortunately, this requires the user to create/maintain the TGA image file which, although easy to do, not all users are prepared to do.

EDIT: After quite some time testing map boundaries and adding annotations, I do not see how you could have gotten a failure message for the Shire while anywhere in Nan Wathren, Nan Wathren simply does not extend far enough south or west to overlap the Shire parchment - the furthest south point in Nan Wathren is at 18.9S but the northern boundary of the Shire map is 22.9. A similar issue occurs when checking the EW border for overlap. The only maps possible in that area would be North Downs, Bree-land and Eriador. So far all scenarios test correctly - that is, duplicates do not get added and generate an error message while non-duplicates get added and generate the "added" message with the noted exception that if an annotation is added for an area when a different map is being displayed, a duplicate can erroneously be added but it will still display the "added" message. In all cases, the map names listed were the correct map names for the location tested.

Is it possible the message was already in your chat window from a prior node elsewhere and you didn't notice it until you tried to add the node in North Downs? Of course, that doesn't make a lot of sense unless the mouse click never occurred for the node you were trying to add, but not actually clicking would explain why no annotation was added to the map. Might you have accidentally copied and posted the wrong failure message? I'll keep checking it but I don't see any way that the message you posted came from a location in Nan Wathren.

Additionally, if you have the client already running when you extract/copy the files, you have to force the client to re-poll the plugins folder using the "/plugins refresh" command. Otherwise the client only checks for new/changed plugin definition files on a client restart.
That was it, thanks. I'd thought the folder "Garanstuff" was just a placeholder and extracted only the contents into plugins. Once I moved everything into a "Garanstuff" folder it works fine. Thanks!

ver 1.06 delay

EDIT: Version 1.06 is now available.
While re-capturing most of Ered Luin's default data I realized that I never entered any of the icons in Staddle, so that little oversight should get fixed in 1.06 as well. I have included a number of other "interior" maps who's resource IDs I already had found, but do not plan to enter default data for most of them until I get the parchment map data done, so don't be surprised if places like the Mirkstone Tunnels have maps but no icons. Other areas like Sarnur will not be added until I find the maps' image resource ids in order to avoid adding JPG maps.

I'm looking for feedback on one of the other future enhancements I've been toying with, user modifiable "overlays" which I think would be really helpful to raid leaders since users could overlay things like paths to follow and warnings about things to avoid, etc. This would require people to actually modify a TGA file but if I allowed them to be uploaded for sharing, I believe this could be useful. The basic idea would be to allow users to save a TGA file in a specific folder and then associate that image with a map as an overlay, then provide a dropdown list of available overlays for the currently displayed map. Since TGA files can be edited in layers, creating the overlays in Paint.net or other software would be pretty easy. Please let me know if there's interest in such a feature.

1) Editing Quick Annotations on Multiple Maps: While using quick annotation to add the tombs along the Way of Kings in Annuminas, I noticed that editing a newly added entry only updated the Annuminas map. Neither the Evendim or Eregion maps were updated with the new information. While not a deal breaker, it is a bit awkward since this means you add one entry (user perspective) but must edit 3 entries in 3 different places.

2) Entry into sub-maps: I had been adding a small addendum to the Description of each tomb since I keep forgetting whether or not it can be entered (example: <name> - [enterable | cannot be entered]) . But Elendil's Tomb created a problem which got me considering your comment about working on adding interior maps. Have you considered tracking how an interior is entered, and what type of interior it is? Because Elendil's Tomb is "enterable Quest Locked Instance" in my database right now. This allows for Quest, Reputation and Level locked areas. As well as accounting for Common and Instanced (raids, skirmishes and instances) versions. I'm not sure you want to account for this in the database, but thought i should bring it up while you're still working on this feature.
Thanks for your comments. I'd actually already given a great deal of thought to both of these issues and arrived at the current functionality as the best (or least annoying) of several options.

The issue with the multiple annotations on separate maps arises from limitations in the Turbine Lua interface (no map ID and no ability to save/load data in real time) combined with the fact that most maps overlap a bit. Unfortunately, we do not have any way to determine the "correct" map via Lua - the interface doesn't expose this information and the overlaps don't only occur on horizontal or vertical lines making it impossible to do anything other than allow the icons to be added to every map that potentially contains the coordinates. I considered tying the annotations together via a unique identifier, but that got scrapped when I ran into issues with too many custom annotations being carried in a global list. For performance reasons, starting in version 1.06, only the annotations that are for the current map are guaranteed to be in the custom annotations list at any particular time - when leaving a map, the custom annotations specific to a particular map are saved in a separate file and removed from the global custom annotations list, allowing the global list to stay relatively small. Otherwise what happens is that users that have added a couple thousand annotations (one user is already well into the thousands) start having five or six seconds of load time for every map due to the number of custom annotations and that number would significantly increase with additional annotations. That combined with the Turbine 15 second delay on loading/saving live data, means that I can not update annotations on multiple maps without subjecting users to unreasonable delays when loading/switching maps. So, having to manually update annotations on multiple maps if you ever want to change an annotation that is on multiple maps, while mildly annoying, is currently the best compromise. For those who only want one annotation on one map, users can always just open the desired map, right click and add the annotation rather than using the Quick Annotation tool, but for crafters and such, having the nodes show up on multiple maps can be a significant benefit.

You raised an interesting point with the type and amount of data stored for non-parchment map locations. Currently any information that would be specific to a location can be entered into the description text and that is probably how it will remain just due to time constraints (it takes a tremendous amount of time to track down all of these locations and NPCs but it's necessary, especially in the revamped zones). Many of these locations aren't even accessible once you've completed their quests, so I have to go through them on alts, at level, collecting mapping data while fighting mobs, etc - I can tell you, the respawn timers in some of those places are wicked when you have a side task to deal with I'm not looking forward to the higher level instances, imagine "hey, raid leader, can we take another break here so that I can record all of the location information on these mobs?..." hehehe. Anyway, once I've completed gathering and publishing the basic default data for all of the maps I will certainly be extending the interior location information. Whether it is only displayed in the description or gets it's own set of filter/search flags will depend on how much time I am able to allocate when I get to that point. Of course, we may all be level 100 and taking screenies of the Crack of Doom before then, but...

The Ered Luin map data and version 1.06 will be delayed a little. I added the code necessary to process Interior Location maps so that I could add the Thorin's Hall (main floor and lower level) location. I have not added any other interior maps yet, but the mechanism is in place. I am also working on a mechanism for storing the custom annotations in separate files per map - I hadn't counted on anyone adding as many annotations as some users have and when working with the data I noticed a significant impact on load times. This should all be included in version 1.06 with the Ered Luin map data in about two weeks (if the custom data changes are not ready in two weeks, I will simply roll back the changes and publish the data update so as not to delay it too long).

Also, I don't know if it will help to know this or not, but when I download an update, I've been deleting the GaranStuff folder & everything below it, then moving in the new unzipped stuff. I leave the PluginData stuff alone so it will keep all the node info I've found.
I may have figured out what is going on. You mentioned way back in one of your original posts that you loaded MoorMap with PluginManager but I didn't realize the possible implication. When you configure PluginManager, there are actually four distinct components displayed for MoorMap, but you should only ever load the one labelled "MoorMap". The additional components are launched by the plugin itself as it needs them - loading them via PluginManager will not only prevent the default file from being processed but can also generate a null map ID that in turn causes an error on line 3159.

If you did indeed configure PluginManager to load the other componets the fix is pretty simple, load PluginManager and use "/manager" to open it's configuration window and make sure that the plugins "MoorMapDefaults", "MoorMapLoader" and "MoorMapTerminator" are NOT selected to be loaded by PluginManager - "MoorMap" itself should be the only plugin with a name starting with "MoorMap" that is checked. Apply your changes then unload all plugins using "/plugins unload" and reload PluginManager - MoorMap will now be in a stable state. You will then have to manually reload the defaults by opening the Annotation Maintenance Window (click the second button from the left at the top of the window or edit any existing annotation) and click the "Reload Defaults" button. I will be updating the usage instructions to avoid this in the future.

If this was not the issue, let me know (well, please let me know either way).

P.S. I've been seeing some significant load times on the maps with all those custom annotations. I may have to consider breaking up the custom annotations the same way the default ones are to ease that a bit.

@Matzig - this may also be the underlying problem with your missing default icons. Please let me know if you were using PluginManager (or other plugin loading method) and were loading more than just the "MoorMap" plugin. If so, just follow the steps outlined above to resolve.


This was in fact the issue for me. I thought for moment it wasn't when I brought up Ered Luin, but then I remembered it wasn't on the list of loaded defaults yet. I loaded Bree-land and all kinds of new flags popped up.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Also, I don't know if it will help to know this or not, but when I download an update, I've been deleting the GaranStuff folder & everything below it, then moving in the new unzipped stuff. I leave the PluginData stuff alone so it will keep all the node info I've found.
I may have figured out what is going on. You mentioned way back in one of your original posts that you loaded MoorMap with PluginManager but I didn't realize the possible implication. When you configure PluginManager, there are actually four distinct components displayed for MoorMap, but you should only ever load the one labelled "MoorMap". The additional components are launched by the plugin itself as it needs them - loading them via PluginManager will not only prevent the default file from being processed but can also generate a null map ID that in turn causes an error on line 3159.

If you did indeed configure PluginManager to load the other componets the fix is pretty simple, load PluginManager and use "/manager" to open it's configuration window and make sure that the plugins "MoorMapDefaults", "MoorMapLoader" and "MoorMapTerminator" are NOT selected to be loaded by PluginManager - "MoorMap" itself should be the only plugin with a name starting with "MoorMap" that is checked. Apply your changes then unload all plugins using "/plugins unload" and reload PluginManager - MoorMap will now be in a stable state. You will then have to manually reload the defaults by opening the Annotation Maintenance Window (click the second button from the left at the top of the window or edit any existing annotation) and click the "Reload Defaults" button. I will be updating the usage instructions to avoid this in the future.

If this was not the issue, let me know (well, please let me know either way).

P.S. I've been seeing some significant load times on the maps with all those custom annotations. I may have to consider breaking up the custom annotations the same way the default ones are to ease that a bit.

@Matzig - this may also be the underlying problem with your missing default icons. Please let me know if you were using PluginManager (or other plugin loading method) and were loading more than just the "MoorMap" plugin. If so, just follow the steps outlined above to resolve.
