Question Hide World Map icons

Some icons on the world map bother me.

There's no reason for them to, as they don't impact on game play. I'd just prefer they not be there. The star, near the middle of the Ardenweald map, for example. It marks Dapperdew and its subtitle is "Anima Conductor: Dreamsong Fenn".

I have all of my addons disabled, so it's not a standard "Disable HandyNotes" problem.
I tried /FrameStack to identify the icon, hoping to put something together for myself, but it didn't seem to help.

Does an addon or simple script exist, to remove this and or any other icons?

Ardenweald Star Map

Thanks.

Lua Code:
  1. hooksecurefunc(WorldMapFrame, "RefreshAllDataProviders", function()
  2.     WorldMapFrame:RemoveAllPinsByTemplate("AreaPOIPinTemplate")
  3. end)
  4.  
  5. hooksecurefunc(WorldMapFrame, "OnMapChanged", function()
  6.     WorldMapFrame:RemoveAllPinsByTemplate("AreaPOIPinTemplate")
  7. end)

I am putting together a short addon with options to choose what to hide.

I just threw together a short addon that defaults to removing all the points of interest icons, which includes the covenant-specific icons (and other expansion-related features).

There is also an option to disable the covenant calling icons, if you really wanted to do that too. Just type /HideWorldMapIcons to open up the options.

Very cool. I'll check that out now. In any case, thanks for the effort.

EDIT: That has a nice de-cluttering effect.
If I wanted to remove just one icon, is that possible? The star could be one example, but there are likely others.

Uploading a new version today that is simpler.

The addon is renamed FilterWorldMap and you can turn filters on/off using the menu in the top-right corner of the World Map.

New download link:

I have not yet changed it to pick specific kinds of POIs to filter -- I wanted to get this improvement done first so that the options are easier to manage should I proceed to add any more.

Uploading version 1.2 that will filter out anything with "Anima Conductor" in the description, separately from other points of interest. This should strip out the star you are referring to, and a couple other icons in Ardenweald, without also removing POIs from across the whole game.

A nice version and, in the map menu as it is, unobtrusive.
I doubt there will be much more to do, though you may yet get requests.
I'll copy this comment into the addon's comments.
Thanks!
