I often have trouble trying to find that little white arrow in the visual overload of colors, explosions, aoe effects, UI, etc. This is an attempt to make those quest markers much more obvious. This currently changes the floating in-world icons, compass icons, and map icons.


Options
  • Show the in-world CQM icons and show the default icons on the compass and maps.
  • Resize the in-world icons anywhere between 32x32 to 96x96.
  • Color options. Aqua, blue, fuchsia, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, teal, vanilla, and yellow.
    ** Changes to the compass and map icons will only happen after reloading the game. Changes to the in-world icons (theme or size) will happen immediately.
1.14 2020-08-24: Updated API for Stonethorn.

1.13 2020-05-08: Updated API for Greymoor.

1.12 2020-02-16:
1. Updated API for Harrowstorm.
2. Removed libstub from dependencies.

1.11 2019-09-14: API bump for Dragonhold.

1.10 2019-08-12: API bump for Scalebreaker.

1.9 2019-04-15: API bump for Elsweyr.

1.8 2019-03-23:
1. Added the zone story quest icons to the compass. I never noticed these until I started playing alts during the event. I'm sorry I missed these.

1.7 2019-03-18:
1. Old School Theme: Added ? icons for the zone story quest icons. Thank you to NTak for the idea!

1.6 2019-02-25:
1. Added zone story quest icons for Wrathstone.

1.5 2019-02-23: Added in some "Old School" quest markers. They look better at 64x64 and I put them together pretty quickly so they're not perfect but it was for fun.

1.4 2019-02-23:
1. Added options menu. Use slash command /cqm.
2. Added option to only show the in-world CQM icons and show the default icons on the compass and maps.
3. Added option to resize the in-world icons anywhere between 32x32 to 96x96.
4. Added an initial 13 color options. Aqua, blue, fuchsia, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, teal, vanilla, and yellow. I included vanilla as well. Use this "theme" to use the default ESO icons if you just want to resize the icons.
** Changes to the compass and map icons will only happen after reloading the game. Changes to the in-world icons (theme or size) will happen immediately.

1.3 2019-02-20:
1. API bump for Wrathstone.

1.2 2019-02-18: Corrected a scope mistake which was causing the compass textures to not load.

1.1 2019-02-18: A couple small fixes. I realized I still had some bit referencing PointsofColor. I'm having trouble with none of my compass icons appearing now but others say they appear normally so I'm not sure if it's just me or something wrong with CQM yet.

1.0 2019-02-18: Initial release.

Planemeld of Old-Skool and New-Skool quest markers ;)

I'm glad to know someone is using the Old School theme. I put it together pretty quickly for fun and I was curious to see what it looked like in the game. I was thinking about making the unassisted (non targeted quest) grayscale maybe? I'm hesitant to make changes without feedback. I always seem to upset someone when I make any changes.

No problem for the idea.
Thank you for adding it.

Don't ask me "Is the color ok?", I'm gonna tell you I'd prefer a customizable one for each quest icon.
But I think having the same color for “!” and “?” isn't confusing.

Which one is the unassisted?
If it's the blue one, it's nice because it's more or less the same color than the regular daily craft quests icon.
If it's the “yellorange” one, it could be nice to have the same color than the regular quests icon. But I admit I do like the current colour.

I think the best way to not be afraid of upsetting anyone is to add new possibilities without removing the previous ones.
I think I accidentally commented on these old skool quest icons on the PointsOfColor comments, so I will go ahead and share my two-cents here on this. Yes, daily/repeatable quests should be blue, regular quests should be yellow. Unaccepted quests you have yet to pickup should be the ! icon, quest directions/turning in quests should be the ? icon. And to expand upon this, I really like the idea of taking the original ESO quest markers, and tweaking them and putting the yellow !/? icons on top. That way Main quest/Zone quests with their unique quest marker that differentiates from normal sidequests would still have that look but with the old skool on top in some way.

So basically to summerise: Normal quests start with ! and end with ?, Daily/repeatables should be blue and start with ! and end with ?, and main quest/Alliance Zone Quest should have a different backing icon under the !/?.

(Now I am sure some people would like the colorful door icon, but some people might like to keep the Skyrim-esque quest marker arrow, but with the !/? layered on top of it. Maybe could also change the ESO quest arrow to be minimalistic and/or high contrast color with the !/?

Edit:

I made a mockup of what a combined ESO + Oldskool quest marker could look like.



I think the ESO quest markers should be made to be minimalist but keep the original color, as for the mainquest/story/zone quest they need to be differentiated from standard quests.

What do you all think about this mockup?

Edit2: Reason for my mockup was because I didn't like how quests were ! and ? were story quests. Didn't feel right with how quest markers were in WoW. And to add to my mockup, the write/daily quest should be the blue of course for the !/?.

Please remove embedded libraries or update them PROPERLY:

https://www.esoui.com/forums/showthr...hlight=LibStub

Known since Summerset but never changed in many addons
Please update the adddon, especially the libraries (strip embedded old ones and include them updated with their own txt files, or just leave them alone and let users install them seperately only once like an addon), and update the usage of the libs in your addons without LibStub, using the global variables of the libraries (check their description/changelog for the names of the variables and the needed >= AddOnVersion of the libraries, e.g. 31 now for LibAddonMenu-2.0).

Check this post for a howto update your addon:

Exclamation Posted about this issue on DarkUI comments, same deal

Posting these Lua errors here as they are specific to this addon, but its the same issue as DarkUi and PointsOfColor.




So, basically like I said on the DarkUI comments, these addons require LibStub, but LibStub has been discontinued in favor of ESO's built in function that has replaced LibStub and the r31 update to LibAddonMenu-2.0 removed the embedded LibStub which broke DarkUI, PointsOfColor, CQM, and Wykkyd's Toolbar.

not sure if this has been posted. i tried to change from pink to yellow and the option box is blank. i have to restart the game to get it to repopulate, but cant select the other colors.

EDIT -
after the 3rd restart of the game i was able to see the box with icons again, picked yellow, restarted game and it worked.

bugeater never popped any errors /shrug something to look into maybe. thanks for this addon!

I just started playing for a while and I think quest markers in this game is the most horrible that I've ever experienced on any MMORPGs that I have played in my whole life. It is so confusing to know which marker is unaccepted quest and which one is the target for the selected quest.

Thank you for your hard work. This addon might be very helpful for me.

Hi Jhenox,
thank you for this addon, saw this in your todays addons flush
Here in ConspicuousQuestMarkers you added for finished daylies only a blue exclamation mark, but no blue question mark, for a special reason ?

suggestion

I was discovering (since I just had to run a new character through db questline) that I find it very difficulty sometimes to see my targets for db assassinations. Those are the ones that are always black/white hands above heads. Is there a way you can allow those to take color? So that they can be seen more easily?

I felt like having zone quests be even more distinct, so I went ahead and added the ability to choose different icon themes for Zone and Repeatable quests.

Here's the resulting zip, which includes the whole changed addon as well as a diff of just my changes. I hereby relinquish any rights to the code I wrote, so please feel free to add it with no need to attribute or anything.

Markers Reset on zone

Hello, I am new to the game and this addon helps me see quests much easier.


I can set the colors and markers in-game, however my issue is that every time I zone anywhere in-game, including logging in/out or restarting game entirely, the markers constantly reset to ESO defaults no matter what settings I apply

AM I missing something in the settings?

Any thoughts?

thanks

Hi. Thank you for the mod. Is it possible to have an option for ONLY pins on compass and WITHOUT in-world CQM icons?
I am using an awesome mod Pin killer for immersion but your mod overwrites this mod and shows the icons in the world. Would it be possible pls?
