ok so now I see fireflies and flowers n stuff :D
this look right?
as youcan see in this pic I was able to add the names to the minimap name bar thingy lol
what I did was extract everything that was tied to map 1116 (Draenor in WoD) form AreaTable.dbc, Map.dbc, WorldMapArea.dbc, and WorldMapContinent.dbc
then import them to the Wotlk dbc's . having some issues but a <WIP> lol
I've only done it once when I did that huge map pack for the Cata to MoP Maps, that 9Gigabyte sucker. I've not bothered with doing it for WoD yet because I gotta repull the map in a few months anyway so if anything does get changed or expanded in that time, I'd rather not have to waste any un-needed effort for it XD. Or maybe I'll wait till 6.2 is underway since Tanaam jungle won't be worked on until then give or take. Secondly if I'm going to do it, I think it'd be best to wait when I actually pull all available maps and instances from the game instead of just one map. XD But it's good practice so keep on modding man!

ok so here is how I added the names for the mini map FROM WoD:
I extracted entry 962 from WoD WorldMapArea.dbc
I left the map id '1116' rather than changing it to 900 for everything lolCode:962,1116,0,"Draenor",12242.34375,-10493.4384766,11193.0,-3964.1875,-1,0,0,
and added the entry to WotlK WorldMapArea.dbc
then I extracted entry '13' from WoD WorldMapContinent.dbc
and added the entry to wotlk WorldMapContinent.dbcCode:13,1116,0,0,0,0,0.0,0.0,1.0,-4771.0,-6276.0,11630.0,10120.0,0,
I add as in your tut:
to map.dbc leaving map id '1116' (WoD Draenor)Code:1116,"Draenor",0,8404573,1,"Draenor",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,0xFF01FE,0,"",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,0xFF01FC,"",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,0xFF01FC,360,1.0,0,0.0,0.0,-1,0x2,0x0,0x0,
ok last but NOT least I extracted every entry that was bound to map '1116' in AreaTable.dbc
now WoD has less entry columns than WotlK so I used Excel to open my WotlK AreaTable.dbc and added the entries from WoD, then a little column adjusting and they were ready to add.
I added the modified WoD AreaTable entries in small bundles so I could eliminate any trouble entries. yea there was a few.
so with out any more time wasted here is the updated to WotlK entries for Draenor:
just copy the entries and add them to the bottom of your AreaTable.dbc .
after modifying your WotlK dbc files , just add them to your DBFilesClient folder in your custom patch and poof now the name plate above the minimap will show names.
end product is WoD Draenor map with minimap and names :D
this doesn't fix the full maps tho . only the name and the circular map in the upper right corner .
if some one knows how to fix that , a tut would be perfect.
Also repost this on other websites like that AirConditioner-web.org(not air conditioner but it is the name we do not speak of around these parts XD), modcraft, and maybe owned core. If you make a video, don't try to follow other people's formats, make it true to you. By this I mean if you're not a loud hyperactive person, don't do that in your videos like some people that aren't do, and their videos are intolerable.
Or if you aren't a person loves to talk and explain people's ears off( like I do ), don't do that and don't be so informative lol. Do what you feel, do what you like, and NEVER do what you hate others do. Like my pet peeve is someone who under explains stuff, it annoys me, they were a noob/beginner at one point but now they are this almighty guru, they seemed to have forgotten who their audience is. >.<
But do as you will.
