MiniMap by Fyrakin (former name ZrMiniMap - Updated) was rebranded to reflect what it truly is. Every bit of the code in this add-on is totally written and or rewritten by myself, there are some math solutions for some neat features I was very happy to make.

Anyway, I'm happy to share my work with other players. If you find something in my code you want to re-use - ask my permission, please.

MiniMap is most accurate and highly FPS efficient add-on available. It is the first MiniMap add-on for ESO with a true wheel mode . Now it also features anticipated feature - border pins (first seen in Deathangel's RMM).

It has been thoroughly tested with HarvestMap, SkyShards and LoreBooks.

This Add-on was inspired by ZrMiniMap and Radar MiniMap many thanks to Zerorez and Deathangel1479. I would also want to give special thanks to Moosetrax and Vixion for amazing wheel textures!

Current MiniMap version performs in a way I would never imagine when I started this project - its almost impossible to notice a difference in FPS while running it (there is a mode to do it in this add-on), it has many new useful features I would never dreamed of. I love and use this add-on myself and can't let it die . For as long as I will be playing ESO and ZO allow UI mods I will keep it up to date.

I would also want to thank the HarvestMap, SkyShards and LoreBooks authors, because I use them in combination with MiniMap.

HarvestMap has options to change pin colors, so I made MiniMap support them.

I added support for LostTreasure pins to be displayed on MiniMap border. Treasure hunters rejoice!
MiniMap now supports English, German, French, Japan and unofficial Russian, Spanish client, thanks to Baertram, DaBear78, Ayantir, Kota, KiriX and Kwisatz for translations.
MiniMap has a new option to enable Destinations add-on available quest pins (up to 5 closest) on border.

Shinni adapted TrueExploration add-on to work with ZrMiniMap.

It should work with current version as well. Please note, that TrueExploration uses many textures, which may considerably slow the map loading process - don't use map rotaion mode if you are using this add-on.

Note: MiniMap was started transfrorming to worldmap independant back in July and was made fully worldmap independant back in the mid-August.

This was made to maximize performance. To maintain compatibility with all other add-ons that use custom pins there is still a small part of code that pulls custom pin information from worldmap container, this part of the code has no effect on MiniMap performance.

There is no need to use any special API to have your pins on MiniMap. Basically if you use standard ESO API functions to make a custom pin your pin will be seen on MiniMap just like on a WorldMap.

If other add-ons provide way too many pins (more than a thousand pins per map) you may experience some hickups or slight fps drops during map transitions.

This is unavoidable, because during map transitions map refresh will happen and other add-ons will have to give those pins to the map first, despite the efficiency I put in MiniMap this process takes place in all those add-ons you might use, the more add-ons you use the more pins you see on the map the more workload it will require when you change zones.

Consider this wisely when choosing what to use .

Feature list of the latest version:

  • Can toggle between true Wheel and Rectangle shape mode
  • Resizable to any rectangular shape MiniMap
  • Can toggle between North facing and Rotating MiniMap mode
  • Can lock/unlock position and size
  • Key bind to toggle MiniMap
  • Over MiniMap mouse as well as key bound zoom supported
  • Separate zoom levels for each zone and subzone
  • MiniMap chat commands to reset default settings, hide/unhide minimap
  • MiniMap chat commands to get player location and fps test to chat and clipboard
  • MiniMap performance settings for all data refresh rates
  • Custom map pins supported
  • Group map pins for the player zone supported
  • Cyrodiil map pins, links, link locks supported
  • Ability to filter all PvP map objects
  • Ability to show undiscovered wayshrines and POIs
  • Map pin tooltips supported
  • Optional quest, group member, waypoint border pins
  • Optional bank, stables, closest wayshrine border pins
  • Optional player and group member combat state display
  • Optional MiniMap autohide while in combat
  • Optional wayshrine functionality (needs tooltips enabled)
  • Optional Map pin scaling by percentage
  • Optional player coordinate display

In version 1.14 you can collect FPS data while having MiniMap toggled on or off and later see the average results (note that in order to have comparable results you have to do exact same actions for same durations with MiniMap toggled on or off).

If you have any helpfull feedback as to where and when you have FPS drops with the Mini Map would be appreciated. In 1.12 there were several changes in add-on to imporove it's impact on FPS, I reccomend to set MiniMap refresh delay to 40 to have best performance and MiniMap responsiveness.

Since version 1.16 you can fully control how fast your MiniMap will be. Note that minimal settings will consume some of the FPS (not as much as you would expect though). There are means to test and compare in this mod, so go agead and find out whats best for you.

Please note that when MiniMap is hidden (toggled off) it does not affect your precious FPS.

To set up MiniMap key bindings for Zoom and Toggle go to Controls -> Keybindings and scroll down until you find MiniMap by Fyrakin.

Known issues:

  • When you launch the client and load your character there is a severe lag.

    Do /reloadui, once just before you begin to play.

    Airbnb may not ipo

    Lag should no longer bother you unless you decide to restart the client. There might be some problems with the game update 1.7

  • Group pins sometimes stop updating - ESO update 1.4.4.

    States that this issue is solved.

  • Keep links may be displayed while in a cave in Cyrodiil (if the cave is on keep link way) - will be fixed in later updates
  • Custom pins in some very rare cases stop updating even while using reload button only /reloadui fixes that - issue is being investigated looking for steps to reproduce (issue too rare haven't encountered in weeks)
  • Toggled off MiniMap will show back after some short duration if you have in-combat Autohide enabled.

    - This was fixed in v2.52.

  • In Rotation mode texture tiles have tiny gaps in between when rotating - investigating for possible solutions.
  • When switching from older versions or after deleting saved variables, player position and zone name label font settings are not set with defaults.

    Support AddOn Development!

    Simple solution is to set them manually, they will be stored and carry over. - This was fixed in v1.75.

  • Eastmarch, Giant's Run (Cradlecrush Arena). Map has missing textures. This is a game side issue.
  • Some caves may still display wrong movement speed.
  • Unsupported unfficial translations will cause error message upon load.

    If you are using one of unsupported unofficial ESO translations - make a copy of lang\en_strings.lua to lang\xx_strings.lua, where xx is your language code. To check language code while ingame use chat command /script d(GetCVar("language.2"))

    Elder scrolls online best option settings

    Reduced execution costs on most frequently used functions by ~70%. This should resolve UI stutters after changing zones and having many quest/border pins.

  • Slightly improved map transitions.

    Map transitions still lock up UI for a brief moment when having many custom pins.

    Small changes to improve performance.

Version 2.74
  • Tweaked pin updates a little to improve efficiency.

Version 2.73
  • Changed PvP map pin handlers from anonymous to local functions to reduce lag.
  • Slightly optimized pin updates.
  • Fixed Pin View Range Filtering.
  • Removed some no longer used/needed variables/functions.

Version 2.72
  • Reworked custom pin placement again.

    This should eliminate map stutters.

  • Optimized pin updates to address performance issues.
  • Fixed custom pin tooltip errors for Craglorn border pins (Destinations).

Version 2.71
  • Changed non PvP map/border pin handlers from anonymous to local functions to reduce lag.

    This change may improve your UI performance.

  • Reworked custom pin placement again. Seems to be faster.

Version 2.70
  • Fixed Zoom In/Out animations.
  • Fixed pin update for square mode.
  • Tweaked map transition updates to run smoother.
  • Made a few minor performance tweaks.
  • Disabled some cleanup functionality (which was safe to use before update 1.7) to reduce lag, though it might not be noticable.

Version 2.69
  • Updated addon to API version 100012.
  • Fixed Map issues caused by MiniMap (could not zoom out of Tamriel/Coldharbor, wrong Cyrodiil pins if zoomed in there while outside).
  • Fixed MiniMap settings errors (Border pin options and recommended square/wheel modes).

Version 2.68
  • Redesigned many pin update events.

    All MiniMap modes now run smoother and more reliable.

  • Moved public procedure declarations to the main table. A code convenience change.
  • Added zoom animations to zoom in/out events (keybound and mouse over MiniMap scroll).
  • Added automatic MiniMap freeze for 1s if UI FPS drops by 10 below average - this should give full power to the UI when there is heavy need.

    This is a performance safeguard feature.

  • Reworked speed measurement. Should return more consistent values, especially during cross map (zone/subzone) transitions.
  • Addressed missing pin and custom pin refresh issues.
  • Updated map sizes for Craglorn group delves.
  • Fixed some small bugs with custom pin placement/refresh/removal for all modes.

Version 2.67
  • Tweaked rotation mode updates.

    Rotation mode will work smoother and faster now. This change will allow to use rotation mode with a higher number of custom pins.

  • Updated map sizes for a few Craglorn group delves.
  • Fixed some small bugs with custom pin placement/refresh/removal for all modes.

Version 2.66
  • Fixed custom pin updates in square mode. Now custom pins will be seen in all modes once again.
  • Added additional checks for places without map textures so you don't get spammed by error messages.

Version 2.65
  • Added performance settings for pin update chunks and time intervals.

    This will let you customize how smooth pin updates should happen. Default settings are optimal.

  • Optimized available quest giver filtering from Destinations add-on (for border pins). When there were more than 5 available quests per zone and MiniMap had to choose 5 nearest pins to show - there were annoying performance hiccups.

    This change made the feature harmless to the UI performance.

  • Fixed some custom pin refresh issues.
  • Polished some functions for efficiency.
  • Removed some obsolete code.

Version 2.64
  • Reworked custom pin updates. They now update in chunks with small delays - this change will allow you to play with much more custom pins before you get performance decrease.
  • Reworked pin cleanup. Clean up will also be processed in chunks with small delays - this change reduces UI hiccups to minimum during map transitions.
  • Optimized some math functions.

    Slow PC users may notice some performance increase.

  • Implemented border pin coloring. Now Destinations users can see available quest pins on border in color of their choice.
  • Added missing settings translations.

Version 2.63
  • Fixed performance issues after switching Cyrodiil campaigns.

Version 2.62
  • Fixed group member combat state pin updates.
  • Fixed keep under attack state pin display.
  • Updated some cave map sizes.
  • Added new feature - group member index labels.

    You can enable it in Player and Group Pin Settings.

Version 2.61
  • Fixed group member pin visibility in square mode.
  • Fixed dead group leader/member pin color setting.
  • Slightly reorganized group pin refresh code. Just a code convenience change.

Version 2.60
  • Reworked wheel mode pin visibility checks.

    This change signifficantly improves MiniMap performance in wheel mode.

  • Reworked pin placement in rotation mode. This change signifficantly improves rotation mode. Yes now you can enjoy this mode even if you have up to 600 active pins per zone. You may still have good performance with more active pins, however I would not reccomend using it.
  • Slightly optimized pin object management. This change may improve some performance on slower systems.
  • Fixed performance issues for some zones.

    There was an issue with some specific zones (Belkarth for example) where you had a signifficant performance drops after entering them.

Version 2.59
  • Fully reworked group pin updates. More efficiency, more accuracy, more code convenience :).
  • Fixed MiniMap menu autohide.

Version 2.58
  • Added additional checks to ensure that cleaned pin textures stay hidden when in wheel mode.
  • Added some missing local variable declarations.

Version 2.57
  • Further more optimized Keep Network updates.

    This should make MiniMap run on PTS as good as on live.

  • Changed keep network clean up to be more thorough. This is just a code convenience change without any visual traces.

Version 2.56
  • Changed Keep network refresh rate minimum and maximum values in performance settings to 900 - 8000 ms.
  • Slightly optimized KeepNetwork refresh code.
  • Tweaked pin cleanup routines to unload textures.

    Technically this should reduce memory usage after pin cleanup, however I could only see the difference on PTS.

Version 2.55
  • Made MiniMap compatible with the current PTS version. Please note that minimap.txt has live API version specified. If you want to use MiniMap on PTS change line ## APIVersion: 100011 to ## APIVersion: 100012 in that file.

Version 2.54
  • Changed alignment of a Zone Name label control.

    It now should keep its upper vertical position regardless of how much text is displayed.

Version 2.53
  • Improved pin clean up routines (for zone change). Cleaned pins should no longer interfere with UI in any way.

Version 2.52
  • Fixed known issue with combat auto-hide.

    If you manually hide MiniMap it will no longer becomes visible after combat if you have this option enabled.

  • Fixed rare case with POI pins not showing when they should.

Version 2.51
  • Added support for optional add-on _0_MapAPI which should store necessary references to Map API used by MiniMap. If you check the option "Dont use ZygorGuides altered API" even if you don't have ZygorGuides but have _0_MapAPI enabled - MiniMap will try to use original API.
  • Refined some pin control acquisition functions.

    Image Quality And Settings

    These are just code convenience changes.

Version 2.50
  • Updated settings translations.

Version 2.49
  • Adden new option to select speed measurement unit. You can now select ft/s, m/s and %. First two are assumed values, the percentage is a raw value of how faster or slower your movement is compared to unmodified run speed, where 100% is a top speed of unmodified run speed on your feet.

Version 2.48
  • Fixed wrong quest placement after changing zones or UI reload initiated just before entering new map.
  • Further optimized map content updates.

    Reduced redundant update executes (added more checks to ensure updates happen when there is need).This slightly improves MiniMap performance.

Version 2.47
  • Added Custom Pin Refresh delay of double pin refresh rate after changing maps. This will greatly improve performance for rapid movement between zone and subzone forth and back.

Version 2.46
  • Updated Speed calculation procedure to update less frequently so you can actually see the full number with decimals.

    What can I do if I am having performance or framerate issues while playing ESO on PC?

    This may also have some slight performance improvement on very slow PCs.

Version 2.45
  • Updated Wayshrine and available quest border pin placement procedures to reduce workload. This may have some performance improvement for slow PCs.
  • Updated French settings translations.

Version 2.44
  • Added performance setting to disable Worldmap refresh when changing maps.

    You should leave it enabled if you don't have any performance issues while moving between zones. If you have lag spikes after entering new zones (most likely because of many custom pins) set this setting off - this setting will instruct MiniMap not to force all custom pin add-ons to refresh pins as soon as you enter new map and will let MiniMap gather custom pin data at a much slower pace reducing lag.

  • Updated some settings translations.

Version 2.43
  • Added option to display Location pins with crafting services on border.
  • Optimized Location pin (banks, stables, crafting services) placement on border.

Version 2.42
  • Added br_strings.lua file (en_strings.lua copy) to lang folder.

    This will address issues with MiniMap using unofficial Português BR translation.

  • Fixed ocasional error messages with group (and all other in some very rare cases) pin tooltips.

Version 2.41
  • Fixed some error messages for border pin tooltips.
  • Fixed rare issue of MiniMap stopping updates. This could happen after rapid zone switching.

  • Updated map sizes for some Rift delves.

Version 2.39
  • Changed switching between wheel and square modes.

    There will be no more hiding of MiniMap while switching to wheel mode.

  • Fine tuned MiniMap optimizations. Made some small changes that slightly improve overall MiniMap performance and FPS while having MiniMap on.

Version 2.38
  • Added unofficial language (Russian) support.

    Translation by KiriX.

  • Moved font definition table to language files which will make it easier to further localize MiniMap to any other oficially unsupported language.

Version 2.37
  • Further optimized custom pin updates.
  • Optimized map transition code.

    This change improves FPS during map transitions with many custom pins.

  • Added dynamic map stepping while moving faster than sprinting. This change improves FPS while riding a mount at fast speeds.

Version 2.36
  • Optimized custom pin copy routine - reduced memory usage and workload. This change increases overall MiniMap performance. There is noticable performance increase while transiting maps with many custom pins.

Version 2.35
  • Updated map sizes for Eastmarch delves.
  • Added pin filtering exception for Craddlecrush Arena map (wayshrines, POIs and locations should not be there).

    This map has missing textures, it will be blank just like you would see on main map but without redundant map pins unlike on main map.

Version 2.34
  • Added more missing maps (hopefully last ones) to map table and updated sizes for them.

Version 2.33
  • Added additional checks for places without map texture coverage.

    Places like Imperial Underground in Woodhearth should no longer fire any eroor messages.

  • Added some missing maps for quest instances to map table and updated sizes for all Shadowfen caves and instances.

Version 2.32
  • Slightly simplified and optimized several MiniMap internal functions.
  • Fixed sizes for all Deshaan caves.

Version 2.31
  • Fixed rare missing POI pin issue.

    MiniMap sometimes (in very rare cases) failed to load POI pins after entering new map.

Version 2.30
  • Optimized map content updates on MiniMap.
  • Improved MiniMap sensitivity for map changes.
  • Added additional checks for map states to ensure no MiniMap updates happen during Map browsing. This should eliminate unwanted pins on MiniMap after opening Wayshrine or Transitus interface or just browsing Map.
  • Added slight delay for pin data loading upon map zone changes to reduce ESO Client workload.

    This should improve overall FPS during map transitions, but having alot of custom pins on entered map will still require alot of processing.

Version 2.29
  • Added new option to show MiniMap while using a siege weapon.

    Best Settings, Tips & Tutorial for ESO and ESO Morrowind

    It is in View and Mode settings.

Version 2.24
  • Prepared MiniMap for localization to official ESO languages.

    All localizable strings are stored in lang folder (in XX_strings.lua files, where XX - language letters: en, de, fr). At the moment all language files are same english text copies.

    German and French MiniMap users are welcome to contribute their translations.

  • Updated map table with new calculated sizes.

Version 2.23
  • Added option to display LostTreasure add-on pins on border.

    This will show all active LostTreasure pins on border (if they are visible on WorldMap). If you don't have this add-on installed this option will be ignored.

  • Updated map table with new calculated sizes.

Version 2.22
  • Added option to display closest Wayshrine on MiniMap border ;).

    Yes, I know I said its not worth touching, but I couldn't resist it. So, enjoy.

  • Updated map table with new calculated sizes.

Version 2.18
  • Fixed Cyrodiil keep network transit lanes display in wheel mode.

    And clearing outside Cyrodiil.

  • Changed MiniMap behavior during map transitions. There will be a small delay for MiniMap to be refreshed.

    Select a product

    This should fix any lag issues with a frequent zone vs subzone border crossing.

  • Altered load event, MiniMap should appear more reliably in wheel mode.
  • Updated map table with new calculated sizes.
  • Updated distance measurement references to new data structure.

Version 2.17
