Carbonite Map

CARBONITE® is a multi feature addon developed by game industry veterans to improve and enhance the game playing experience of World of Warcraft.

Please visit Carbonite's official support forums for technical support, bug reports, comments, suggestions, etc.

Map - The Carbonite map gives you all the information you need in one easy to use and flexible Google like map. Move, size or zoom it the way you like.

Carbonite supports the Blizzard maps added for WotLK and most Cataclysm instances. Right click an instance location on the map and "Toggle Instance Map" or enter the instance for it to be drawn on the Carbonite map. You will need to zoom in, since they are drawn at a small size. You can see your location and create favorites in the instance.

Quest - Blaze through quests at lightning speed and level faster than you ever thought possible. Our extensive quest database lists the location of quest givers, objectives and turn-ins. Simply click any objective from your quest list and Carbonite will show you where to go. No more wasted time bouncing back and forth between a web browser and the game.

Guide/Hud - The guide is your in-game GPS - it contains the location of every mailbox, trainer, flight master, repair vendor, instance, battle master, etc... if it's in the game it's in the guide. Just click the icon and the HUD navigation arrow will show you the direction, distance and ETA to your target. You can also use it to locate your friends or guild members in a battleground.

CarboniteItems - A data addon that contains information on over 25000 game items. It loads when you use the "Items >>" section of the Guide. Mouse over the item icons to see a Carbonite generated tooltip of information on the item. Search items for specific stats or where it came from. Sort by level, name or search line. Browse bosses for loot.

Warehouse - Browse the equipment, bag and bank slots of every one of your characters at one time! Check their professions, money, experience, honor, arena points and more. You don't have to spend your time switching between characters, use the search filter to find the characters that have just what your looking for.

Battlegrounds - Dominate your opponents with our enhanced battleground map. See the combat status, heath, target and target health of all your teammates. See objective timers right on the map and issue orders with a click of the mouse – call for reinforcements to attack a vulnerable enemy target or simply announce the status of an objective.

Events - A time stamped list of experience and honor gained, enemies killed and other information. What was the name of that guy who ganked you 10 minutes ago? How much honor did you get from the last 3 kills? Did you land the killing blow? Look and see.

Gather - All mining and herb picking is tracked and can be shown on map.

UI - Windows can be moved, sized and locked. Values are saved for each character. Coexists well with most UI addons.

Privacy - Not in a social mood? Just turn off communication with guild, friend or zone and other Carbonite users won't see what you're up to.

    I see that the last update is dated 3 months ago. Is the project discontinued? Should I find an alternate addon?

    Thanks for your hard work.

    I'm an old Carbonite fanboy and come back here every few months to check on alpha progress. Alas, Showing All Quest blobs still not working: I know it's been an issue for years but unfortunately is a deal killer for me. This was the main reason I used this addon; it showed all the quests and I could make efficient decisons on routing by where I was.

    For those of you looking for the same feature I found this and it works dandy (puts quest blobs on zone map)

    in conjunction with (resizes zone map)

    the net effect is everything I wanted in carbonite with a fraction of the payload

    as a side note the other Carbonite killer app is showing dots of allis in Bgs who are in combat; I've yet to see any addon that replicates this.

    Rythal1, I wanted to simply say thankyou for continuing to develop and support this addon.

    It could simply have died, but it didnt. You did not let it and that has helped all of us.

    The map function in carbonite is unique, there is nothing else that comes close to the sophistication and subtle features that it offers.

    One of my major issues is that game freeze if I get attacked while map is up and I press m to make the map go away. Can't tell if it is Carbonite, but things seem to indicate so.

    This addon makes my computer lag real bad . the other 5.4.0 didnt lag but said my computer didnt have enough space. the beta of that version didnt say anything like that and i never lagged. can you tell me what i can disable so it will not lag. in the mean time i uninstalled the addon because of the MAJOR LAG it is causing.

    Since patch 5.41 i get error [Carbonite.Quests has been block from an action only available to the blizzard UI. You can disable the addon and reload the UI.] It will show 2 options disable and ignore when i hit ignore it will pop up every single time i open the map, sometimes when i change zones or hearth or go thru a portal. i uninstalled and reinstalled and its still doing it.

    @Tyrasmira: Go

    Currently settings are global, I'm currently working on bringing back profiles so you can customize per character.
