Unfortunately, the "current" map info is not exposed via Lua so this function uses the map zoom level and boundaries to attempt to find the most zoomed in map that contains the player's coordinates and if two or more maps contain the coordinates at the max zoom level then the one where the player's coordinates have a shorter percent distance from the center of the map is chosen. This will not always yield the "current" map as defined by the game but it is the best option I was able to implement with the available data.
Garan, what about the text part of the ;loc info? I just make a short circle and collect some:

House of Coins
Gondor: Court of the Fount: 74.6S, 71.2W
Rhovanion: The Twenty-first Hall: 5.8S, 105.3W
Rhovanion: Caras Galadhon: 15.2S, 68.2W
Rhovanion: Stangard: 25.6S, 62.9W
Eriador: Nan Laeglin: 66.8S, 16.4W
Eriador: Bree: 31.9S, 50.4W

Etc? That I am suggested to you, make a database (with player's help maybe) from the text part and you do not need any mambo-jambo with coordinates Or just do this in the problematic areas where the coordinates is same in more than one map. Dont need too mutch, just:
name ; map ;
Bree ; Bree-land;
Stangard;The Great River
etc.

Or please check the problematic coordinates, maybe one of them in Gondor other Eriador ... if this is true, you can combinate your coordinate system and my text part suggestion to separate easily with the text part.

Ver 1.28 has a number of minor fixes as well as the maps and data for Central Gondor.

Of particular note for 1.28, the "show location" button will now determine if the player's location can be displayed on the current map and if not, it will attempt to determine the "best" map. Unfortunately, the "current" map info is not exposed via Lua so this function uses the map zoom level and boundaries to attempt to find the most zoomed in map that contains the player's coordinates and if two or more maps contain the coordinates at the max zoom level then the one where the player's coordinates have a shorter percent distance from the center of the map is chosen. This will not always yield the "current" map as defined by the game but it is the best option I was able to implement with the available data.

Thanks for reporting that. That is a typo in the data file which will be corrected in the next release.

Thanks for the bug report. That one's been there for a long time, I'm surprised I never noticed. It will be fixed in the next release.

It isn't possible at this time to accurately determine the correct map. I am working on a possible solution but it requires me to find time to finish collecting some more data about map boundaries. Unfortunately it became a fairly low priority and I don't anticipate getting back to that any time soon.

I will look into the possibility of adding an option to leave the annotation window open when closing the map.

Some rich feature that I suggest: When push the "where I am" button and I am not in the map that show maybe the plugin load the correct map! I am sure it is a lot of work but it would be nice.

When I click the point I got a window with coordinate, that is nice. But if I close the map this windows also close. It will be help a lot if I can pinpoint the coordinate window. For explorer deed the map on the screen take too much space but this window not and help a lot if I see the coordinates meanwile moving.

Anyway thank for this ueseful plugin!

Map overlays

Really appreciate your lengthy reply, thanks. Not sure which of your instructions worked but I now see purple text to the right of the dropdown box at the top and it works!! *rubs hands with glee*

I just want to say that this is by far the most useful plugin I've come across, so a huge thanks for maintaining it.

Thanks for the feedback. Sergeant Hubyrt and Wakenflood will be added at 38.1S, 50.4W in the Wold with the next update (hopefully I will find time soon after Update 15).

Would really appreciate your help as together the map and the overlay would be absolutely perfect!
Hi. The text "Select Overlay" should be showing in the top right corner of the map for any map with an overlay available. If it does not display then perhaps something went wrong while processing the update - the plugin should automatically detect when a new version is installed and add any new data including the default overlays. This typically only fails if a user has set one or more of the utility plugins, "MoorMap Defaults", "MoorMap Loader" or "MoorMap Terminator" to load automatically. Before proceeding, double check the Turbine Plugin Manager or whichever manager you are using and be sure that none of those plugins are set to auto load (the "MoorMap" plugin can be set to autoload, just not the utility ones).

You can force the MoorMap plugin to reprocess the default data and recreate the default overlays by opening the Custom Annotation Maintenance window (load the plugin, display the main window and click the flag icon button, second from the left on the toolbar at the top). Click the "Reload Defaults" button at the bottom center of the Custom Annotation Maintenance window. This should display a small window titled "MoorMap Defaults" which will display each map name in quick succession as it processes the default data for each map. Once complete, the plugin will automatically reload and if you have a map with an Overlay it should display the "Select Overlay" text.

If the message is still not displaying, check your chat window, to see if there are any error messages. Be sure the "Error" channel is selected on your chat window filters (right click the chat tab and select "Change Filters"), by default the "General" tab has this channel selected. If you did not have the Error channel selected, select it and repeat the steps above to reload the defaults and see if there are any error messages. If there are errors, send me a PM with the exact error message and we can work through it.

If any of the components do no show when you use /plugins list (or do not show in the Plugin Manager window) then they were not unzipped to the correct folder. I recommend using Lunarwater's Plugin Compendium application to install plugins to avoid installation errors. Plugin Compendium is available for Windows and Mac/Linux.
Windows:
http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...ompendium.html

Mac/Linux:
http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...mMacLinux.html

If you are already using Plugin Compendium and still having problems let me know.
