Suggestion: Location links for TomTom
Return to board index
It would be nice if we could somehow get a TomTom waypoint link to copy+paste into WoW from a location on Wowhead maps.
For example: I look up an NPC on Wowhead, and I want to fly to that NPC in-game. So currently I memorize the coordinates and go back to the game and type something like /way 89.6 55.0 in order to set a TomTom waypoint with an arrow pointing there in-game. It would be perfect if I could click "links" or click on the waypoint on the Wowhead map to open a copy+paste dialog containing some valid TomTom waypoint string (formatting could include the NPC or object name and zone name in addition to coordinates). Wowhead uses the copy+paste dialog for item links, which gave me this idea for TomTom links.
Thanks for considering this idea.
Except TomTom is an addon, so technically it should be on those creators to develop something that works with Wowhead or another database site, not the site devs.
I think its a very slippery slope if wowhead should start supporting specific addons, if Tom Tom waypoints, why not oter waypoint addons?
I also foresee wowhead staff suddenly being held responsible for why the addon doesn't work with the waypoints if something is changed.
A lot of comment pages have tom tom waypoints in comments (so much that I even think this is actually a problem, addon support is all well and good, but shouldn't there be a Tom Tom forum where this things get shared if indeed they are needed?)
