LocationLite for ElvUI

Latest Update: Jun 24, 2015 08:24 PM
Description: This is the "lite" version of LocationPlus. This version has no tooltip or the datatexts, thus having a small memory footprint. I kept most of the layout options (size, text coloring, fonts) and added a new layout: AsphyxiaUI Style :)

Installation: Install as any addon.

Note: Just make sure you don't have LocationPlus AND LocationLite loaded. You will see a popup in case you forgot to disable one of them.

Also available on Curse

Click to Toggle WorldMap
ShiftClick to send your location in chat

I made the Lite version mostly to work with Shadow & Light, cause the datatexts from Plus version, conflicted (well... not anymore :P).
Disabling stuff in the Plus version is the only way, cause making a 3rd addon with almost the same features as the other two, ... sorry.

Thank you :)

P.S. Sorry for being late answering

Could you make a "Lite" Version WITH the Datatexts, i use your Location Plus only because of that with everything else disabled ^^

Confirmed. You should be a detective tbh :)
Anyway, it's fixed both on Lite and Plus versions. Thank you for the effort to help me solve the issue.

1. Thanks for fixing shadow issue.
2. About hiding datatexts in LocationPlus, it's working! My bad that I noticed Ctrl+Click option too late.
3. About sending coords to chat, it seems there's an issue on both addons after resizing the bar (switching from auto width to manual + truncate text on). As soon as I resized it to fit above minimap I noticed there's only a hot spot (to call it like that) where I can Shift+Click or see the tooltip rather than entire location bar. So that's why I thought it doesn't work at all first time.

I took a small screenshot of it (ss from LocationPlus, but it's same problem on Lite as well).

EDIT: Glad I could bring them to your attention and thanks for fixing it. Cheers!

In LocationPlus there's an option to hide the datatexts. Also in Lite version, the Shift+click should send current location in chat. Gonna check about it though and the shadows issue.

Cheers :)

Edit: Shadows issue is fixed in v1.21, thank you for grabbing this :)
As for Shift+click -> send location to chat, works fine for me.

I switched from LocationPlus to this little one so I can fit it above minimap, but I noticed a little issue. It seems that it doesn't "keep in mind" option Shadows in Layout. I check Shadows and after /reload or relog it goes to default state, unchecked.

ps: Thanks for addon, it's exactly what we miss on minimap section. Would be great if you can fix this little issue tho. Cheers! :)


Also Shift+Click to send current location coords to chat would be awesome (just like on LocationPlus), or maybe give option to disable the 2 data texts on LocationPlus. Just a suggestion.

for cpu load I use ElvUI's "System" datatext (the one that shows addon memory load). If you type "/console set scriptprofile 1" (without the quotes) and then reload, the datatext shows cpu usage per addon.

Just type "/console set scriptprofile 0" and reload when you finish to disable it (highly recommended).

Thanks for the fix, looks much better now.

My comparison with ZoneInfo was only meant about the 50% CPU load increase when level range was enabled.

PS: Which addon do you use for measuring CPU load (or rather displaying what WOW measures)? ;)

Thank you very much for grabbing this. Updated both addons. The addon you mentioned (Zoneinfo) doesn't display coords, which means it doesn't need to be updated frequently as Location Plus/Lite do, therefore it doesn't need much CPU calcs. It gets updated only when changing zones.
Screenshot after the changes (Broker_Location is almost the same with LocationPlus):

and after a long trip from Stormwind to Zul 'Aman with location auto width, detailed coords and level range enabled:

Hi. Thanks for this useful addon and for implementing the level range view in the Plus version earlier!

Unfortunately I decided to uninstall it for the time being due to LocationPlus/Lite using too much CPU time for what it does. It's not like it's very high on CPU load, but its CPU load stays in the vicinity of much bigger addons like ElvUI, Vuhdo, Thread Plates and Trade Skill Master. This is especially true when the level range display (in Plus) is turned on for the datatext (about 50% increase of CPU load), while another broker addon called "Zoneinfo" displays the same information at virtually 0% CPU load.
