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.

    The project IS NOT INACTIVE!!! It IS being worked on. It is taking time due to some serious changes to the mapping system (such as mapIDs) and several other components. Go here: Rythal/Carbonite to see some of the work Rythal has been doing over the past month...

    Some of the forums are here WoWInterface_Sub-Forums : Carbonite... Just gotta read and be patient! ;-)

    @Darkmincer: Go

    You should go to the website where it's developed on before you decide to snatch it out from under the author...

    You know like it says up top there

    I have been using carbonite for years. The map changes the whole game for me. I think they tried to expand it too much with WoW 5, only the beta version worked for me. Now that WoW 6 is out, I have no carbonite at all. I am lost with out it. Checking daily for update, so far none available. You will have millions of grateful players if carbonite gets updated and functioning. We dont need so many bells and whistles with it as was attempted with it before, just a great map. Please update.

    Evilmincer & Symax

    We are going to attempt to make a new version of Carbonite that is more fine tuned.






    we decided that we are going to take up this mantle because we are sick and tired of waiting for the BEST addon that was ever made for wow.

    this will not be an overnighter, but hopefully we will have a functioning version by nov13.

    Hey Rythal, it's been almost a year since i last posted here. At that point, you replied to indicate that you were working on bringing profiles back. I still love carbonite, and am not complaining about it not being updated since march, as the most recent alpha still works just fine for me. I do hope, though, that you'll continue to develop carbonite (including profiles, hopefully soon) for wod. My major wish is that you do a major update around wod launch that'll include profiles, the new maps, etc. Is this something that you're working on?

    Does the addon still have Support generally(at all)? Over a half year to hear nothing more, makes me a little bit taken aback! The next Addon WoD is comming soon in two month! @Rythal What are you doing? If you dont have Time for that, then tell it to us!

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