gMinimap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.11
by: Goldpaw [More]
A simple Minimap addon that reskins the Minimap and some other minor stuff. It does the same as several other addons. And yes, it's yet another square one.

What does it do?
  • Reskins the Minimap to a minimalistic square look.
  • Hides most of the clutter such as zoom buttons, world map button, etc etc
  • Will display icons for the Dungeon Finder, PvP- and Arena, Dungeon Difficulty, and the unread mail icon.


Where is the tracking menu? Calendar? Help!
  • Right-click to get the tracking menu
  • Middle-click to get the calendar
  • Left-click to ping the Minimap
  • The clock is controlled by the Blizzard menu. Hidden by default.


How can I configure it?
  • You can't. It has no options. I might add it in the future, but have no ETA on this.
1.1
- Coordinates now update once every 1/10 seconds using gLib's task scheduler
- Reduced the FrameStrata and increased the FrameLevel of the Minimap
- Removed the background of the clock and increased the font size
- The MinimapCluster now follows the Minimap at all times
- Now uses gLib's localization and event handlers
- Now uses gLib 2.4 and gMedia 2.x

1.095
- The Minimap now hides properly without leaving the black panel visible

1.094
- Coordinate plugin now uses a new timer routine, and should update every 1/10th second

1.093
- CharacterFrame, MailFrame and many more, should once again float towards the right instead of overlapping each other

1.092
- Changed the shade texture

1.091
- Added some extra functionality to retain sizes if gUI is installed

1.09
- Fixed the .toc version number
- Added shader effects

1.081
- gMedia updated, changed the input form of gMedia:panel()
- LFDSearchStatus now has a higher framestrata

1.08
- Reworked the order of thing to avoid some nil errors and taints
- Changed the scaling routines as gMedia now provides this for different UIscales

1.07
- Removed some duplicate entries

1.06
- Changed the code to work with recent changes to gMedia and gLib

1.05
- Unregisters events when no longer needed

1.04
- Fixed the CVar for "uiScale"

1.02
- Added an internal scaling feature to the borders, making them always 1px in size no matter the resolution and UIscale

1.01
- Added some brackets to a true/false check

It was my intention for it to change with the UIscale. It's size is pretty similar to the size of the default Minimap.

I do intend to add the option to change it's size, but I have no ETA on this. I'll be pretty unavailable for the next 2-14 days, so I might be able to add it during the weekend, and it may take as long as 2-3 weeks.

Can't say that, no. Try changing the UI scale, then /reload. Does it change along with it?

Any chance you can make that hide when the minimap is toggled off?

I'll work out a fix for this.

And I intend to add the option to move the movers (watchframe, capturebars etc) in gMinimap.

As usual I have no ETA. My hands are pretty full with developing my UI right now, which will include all of my separate addons. Everything will be updated, but I'm working out from a priority list.

Great job on the addon.

There's just one issue I've encountered though.
When I have this addon installed, my windows (spellbook, profession window, character window etc) would overlap each other, and I can't use the escape key to close these overlapped windows. When I have it disabled, this issue doesn't occur.
I could kiss you right now!

I have been wondering for ages what addon caused this, as I am having the same problem. I just haven't been able to identify it.

I'll start working on a way to fix it.

Edit:
Found solution. Fixed with version 1.093, which should be available soon.

I hope you can give me some help and also those who use the two ui both.
Updated version (1.092) of gMinimap uploaded. It should be available soon.

I apologize for the problems.
