Yeah, I liked the ability to choose between square and round shapes. I couldn't find fMap, any more. Is is it no longer available for download?

@Hendoo
Tracking is hidden, you don't need to know what you track, once you have chosen something to track.

Original "Track" icons - Take a look at dMinimap.lua. Search for track (blip) texture and uncomment or delete that line.

@kasca
It is. Take a look at dMinimap.lua.

I'm currently working on this, it will be part of dMinimap, but I'm not quite sure if I will release it, yet. Or if I make an UI around the round shape first.

You can easily make it blue in the config.

these are the R(ed) G(reen) B(lue) values, a very blue would be
Code:
local bordercolorz = {0, 0, 1.0}
Just take a look at the URL in the config to find a RGB value you like or play around with it yourself. Keep in mind, the numbers have to be between 0 and 1 (0.2, 0.00001, ... 0.5, etc).

You might consider a Config-UI...? plz...?

I really like the new look of this minimap BUT!
Configuring this addon is a pain in the neck to be completely honest.

EDIT:
It's just the location config that bothers me. All the rest seems easy enough

You configure it one time and never again, normally. If your somewhat familiar with lua (just the very basics about positions and such) it's just as fast and easy to configure it. Just less comfortable (since it's not done ingame). Besides that, you don't need to carry around a lot of unused code for a config that you only need once at the beginning. Just my 2 cents.

not about lua - but rather about misleading info

I had a feeling you're gonna say that. I DO in fact have experience with LUA & computer programming alike.
And still, the location defaults given in the lua are not at all the place where my minimap used to be. And well - it's be nice to have a config-UI with the options on location-changing, and scaling.

P.S.
As a hunter myself, I do think u need to be able to see the tracker after you've chosen what to track. But the lua can indeed solve that one

Hi =) Love this mod, but I too do not like the new track icons. I have tried to find the line you mention above to edit but whatever I try does not seem to work, could you possibly show me exactly what line I should remove, edit.

Thank you for this great mod =)

Liked the Addon but assuming everyone knows what there doing with LUA is just wrong and tbh the config of it is very clumsy and having to restart wow everytime i want to make the slightest change is a fail on the design part.
I played with it for around an hour or so and gave up due to having to come out and go back into WoW.
I know that you say that a config file is only ever used once but in saying that you dont seem to realise its only used once to get things right and for ease of use.
this is not a flame as i think that its a great addon just Fuctionality wise its not easy and like some others have said in previous post quite hard to set up, my problem was that my UI is modded and the map does not sit right in the top right hand corner no matter what i do and i cannot configure it to properly sit in the same postion that the Blizz one does.
I would recomend that you try and work some form of config into this but until then i will be using another addon but thanks for the great work you have put in so far.

You can reload your UI with /rl and/or /reloadui, at least if one of your addons adds that slash command. If you have no addon that is doing this, a relog is enough, too. No need for quitting wow.

The default Blizzard map sits in the TOPRIGHT corner. Offsets should come close to (-25, -25).

Feel free to add this code at the end of the lua, it will allow you to reload your UI with /rl
Code:
	SLASH_LHRELOADUI1 = "/rl";
		SlashCmdList["LHRELOADUI"] = function() ReloadUI(); end;

		SlashCmdList["RCSLASH"] = function() DoReadyCheck() end
		SLASH_RCSLASH1 = "/rc"
