If you're concerned with bloat of adding a config screen into the addon, why not just make another folder containing the config screen almost like another addon. This would allow you to have a config editor without having it "bloat" the code for something you believe would only be used once. So in your addon list (on the char select screen) you'd have:

Code:
[x] dMinimap 2
[x] dMinimap 2_Config
Then when you've configured it the way you want, you simply go back to the screen and deselect it and/or del the dminimap2_config folder from your addons directory.

This would seem to appease the people (like myself) who don't understand LUA (even the basics) and are put-off from the complexity of trying to configure it and the people (like yourself) who are comfortable with LUA and can positions things just fine and don't want the bload of an addons screen. This is what Tuller or Aezay does with Combuctor and Dominos and TipTac. You could even make it Addon Loader complient. Heck, simpleminimap, pminimap, and pocketplot all allow drag-able positioning.

Think about it

Is there a zone display toggle for this? If not can it be implemented as an option? Using PocketPlot right now, and like having the zone info there.

It shows the zone when you mouseover the minimap. I don't want it to be present all the time.

Sorry for the late reply, no, fMap is not available for download as i no longer have it. I have my addon "ManaMip" instead which you can get in a PM if you're interested, though i doubt it as you have this great addon.

Judging from the UIs i've seen from you you might be interested in my addons ButtStats and Dingeta as they're (visually) based on your UI.
Free advertisement ftw.

Hehe, I've checked them out, already. That border style is really lovely, yet easy to do.

Hey, for some reason my Quest Tracker went to the top left corner of the screen, right above my character's unit frame.

As a LUA-illiterate, can somebody enlighten me how to move it from there?

Where I found:
---------------------------- Quest tracker ------------------------------
local quest = QuestWatchFrame
quest:ClearAllPoints()
quest:SetPoint(Qpos, UIParent, Qpos_x, Qpos_y)
quest.SetPoint = function() end
I didn't know what to do with it back then, don't know what to do now either.

That's to deep in the file, already.

Code:
-- position of quest tracker
local Qpos = "TOPLEFT"
local Qpos_x = 20
local Qpos_y = -20
While TOPLEFT is the topleft corner of your screen and the numbers are X and Y coordinate (which function as offsets).

Seems like I need to add an option to disable positioning of the quest tracker.

I noticed that when the minimap is scaled up a bit in size, the textures behind (rotating) don't scale also. Will that be possible at some point or is it not meant to be scaled?
