A directional ruler and a destination alarm make travelling large distances in Azeroth really comfortable.

Note: I haven't managed to make CruiseControl work in Warlords of Draenor yet due to some subtle changes in the lua interface. The ruler does get displayed but you cannot click on the Target Ring. I guess this has something to do with changed layering, but I haven't found info on that. I have to reverse-engineer other Addons to see how they solved the issue. Please be patient.

Call for translators!!

If you are fluent in spanish, italian, portugese or simplified chinese, please visit the localisation page and add or check some translations.

New features in this release (v1.5)

  • added Korean and Traditional Chinese

So now you can fly everywhere and anywhere in Azeroth, no need to use the flight points any longer. Just jump on your trusting flying mount and head off toward your goal…

Still frustrated by the long travel times and the constant need to correct your heading? Whishing you could aim your flying mount more accurately? Whishing for an alarm that alerts you when you reach your destination?

Well, here it is! *tadaaaah*


  • CruiseControl displays your direction as a ruler across the whole map which makes accurate aiming at your destination really easy. You should shrink the map to be able to turn your character into the right direction.
  • CruiseControl displays a movable target marker on the ruler that you can click on to set a target.
  • CruiseControl displays the distance to your target and give you an estimate how long it will take you to get there at your maximum flying speed.
  • CruiseControl lets you set a destination distance by just klicking on the target marker on the map. Then just fly off and enjoy the ride.
  • CruiseControl lets you adjust your aim in flight without the need to reset your destination target.
  • CruiseControl will give you a ten-second audible warning when you get near your destination and sound an alarm if you overshoot your target, all so you can spend the travel time preparing your peanut-butter-jelly-sandwich in the kitchen… ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • As soon as you stop, CruiseControl will disengage… and stop that pesky alarm.

Sounds good? Well, I'd prefer if CruiseControl would just stop the players movement when reaching the destination. Unfortunately there is no way right now to automatically stop the flight. Hey, complain to Blizzard, not me! ๐Ÿ™‚

How to use CruiseControl:

Hop onto your favorite flying mount, open the normal map (shrink it so it doesn't cover the whole screen), use the right mouse button to zoom out, turn your character so the ruler points right at your destination (e.g a digsite), pull the target ring onto the destination and click on it. You should hear a click and get the text "CruiseControl engaged" in the chat window. Then fly off. Don't forget to gain enough height to avoid any obstacles in between. When you approach the destination, you will get an alarm. Just stop your character in midair and the alarm will also stop. That's it. It is Rocket Science, but it is cleverly hidden… ๐Ÿ˜‰

CruiseControl lets you change the sounds it plays for various actions via Soundstyles. You can change the alarm sounds to funny animal sounds or provide your own external sound files. Type '/CruiseControl soundstyle animals' to get funny animal sounds, type '/CruiseControl soundstyle default' to go back to the default sounds. You can even set your own sounds by copying sound files into the addon directory and renaming them appropriately, just look into the directory for the example files. Then use them by typing '/CruiseControl soundstyle external'. Oh, and if you donate, I'll tell you the code for another really funny soundstyle… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Features that might get added in the future:

  • add a visual warning by flashing the screen
  • add more localisation
  • add a way to level your flight by pressing a button
  • show a destination marker on the ruler if a destination has been set
  • add a ruler to the battle-map and make it work with the Carbonite map
  • create a config GUI

Suggestions? Comments? Praise? Tell me about it, tell me how CruiseControl made your questing and digging for artifacts more enjoyable. And spread the word.

I'm looking for translators! If you are fluent in french, spanish, portugese or chinese, please visit the localisation page and add or check some translations.
