Chinchilla Minimap  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.7
by: ckknight, Ethan Centaurai
Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Appearance
Allows changing of blip size (useful since 3.1), border style, shape of the map (doesn't have to be circular, or even square, lots of options are available), size, etc.
Auto zoom
Zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).
Compass
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Coordinates
Show your location coordinates
Expander
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
Location
Show the name of your location more flexibly.
Move buttons
Move the buttons around the minimap to wherever you want (even off the minimap entirely).
Ping
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap
Position
Position the minimap and frames around it.
Range circle
Show on the minimap where your range extends to
Show / Hide
Show or hide various frames related to the minimap
Tracking dots
Change the dots on the map to a different set of images. Very handy, especially if you suffer from colorblindness.
Wheel zoom
Mousewheel to zoom the minimap

Hi

Just grabbed this addon yesterday, I really like it. One thing though, I noticed when I logged back in after downloading it, that my minimap buttons, which were all smashed together and overlapping each other. I use Minimap button frame, and I would like to be able to continue using that along w/ chinchilla, as I really like it. Is there a way to resolve the issue between the 2 addons? I have removed and re downloaded both and the issue is still there. I disabled chinchilla, and the issue is gone. So I am sure its chinchilla, conflicting somehow, w/ MBF.

The issue I have with Chinchilla is that it seems to have some issues with Blizzard's Quest Tracker. The addon keeps reducing the tracker down to just a few lines everytime you reloadui or log-in. I disabled the quest tracker management from the chinchilla option but that doesn't seem to fix it.

I can fix this by re-enalbe and then disable the quest tracker option in Chinchilla, but it happens again if you relog/reloadui/whatever. It's kinda annoying.

been having a weird issue with Chinchilla. The Blizzard questing arrow wont update its position unless you open the world map. Not sure why this is happening but thought I would pass it along.

Only just noticed this but since the patch some buttons still have borders even when the option is set to 0% opacity. Specifically this included the mail and lfg buttons.

EDIT: Did some more testing.

I went back through the newest releases to some 3.3.5 versions. None of them were able to hide the borders. Deleted my saved variables and again, no luck. I enabled more buttons and found the zooms, tracking and calendar buttons had visible borders. Only the BG/Arena button is affected, apparently.

If blizzard is preventing this or you're just removing the option from Chinchilla I'll have to accept it or try fixing it with a blank .blp file if I can remember how that works.

Any chance of adding multiple tracking support (user selectable icons)? This way we could tell herbs apart from fish and ore etc.

Not sure how hunter support would work out with so many things to track at once. The mini map could become quite cluttered. Presumably, one would, at some point, simply be tracking too many things to be practical on a mini map, especially when zoomed out. But then that would be up to the individual user most likely. I generally like to track fish, beasts and humanoids when out in the wild. Unique icon shapes would go a long way toward making things more informative.

Long time user and enormous fan of Chinchilla here

The one feature I just plain can't live without is Expander -one of those things you never think about, but once you have it you just can't take not having it.

Anyway, I'm not sure how difficult it would be - but would it be possible to set a custom opacity while expanded? Like normally have the minimap at 100% opacity, but when holding down the expander button drop it to 80% opacity or so?

Excellent work with the mod!

I had the same Watchframe error and was able to get it to go away by turning the questtracker frame back on in Chinchilla.

I'm not able to replicate this. What are your height/width settings for the watch frame?

I'm still having trouble preventing the act of going into combat or out of combat dictating whether the minimap is hidden away. Any ideas where this problem is originating? This was not a problem two version ago and just recently started. If I could find where this problem is coming from, I'd comment out the code myself.

Any ideas?

--------------

Finally found the problem, the "Appearance.lua" under Modules. In comparison of the previous working this doesn't seem any different, so why this would be an issue now, no idea.

local inCombat = InCombatLockdown()
function Appearance:PLAYER_REGEN_ENABLED()
-- inCombat = false
-- self:SetAlpha()
end

function Appearance:PLAYER_REGEN_DISABLED()
-- inCombat = true
-- self:SetCombatAlpha()
end

Patch 4.0.1

Patch 4.0.1 was released on live servers in the US today and the EU tomorrow.

Chinchilla works fine "out of the box" with Patch 4.0.1 with only three known issues:

1) The Ping module throws a strop and doesn't work at all.
2) The option to show/hide the minimap clock causes an error.
3) Tracking blips might appear distorted if not using Blizzard's default blips.

These issues should be fixed when the next version of Chinchilla is uploaded here in the next few days.
If you are using the latest beta builds from WowAce, then only the tracking blips will be affected.

Only issue I have is that my zoom level gets reset every time I relog. Any way to get to remember it? I prefer to be max zoomed out...

Edit: nm, auto zoom feature seems to do the trick

Sounds like a file permissions issue to me. Sadly there's nothing I can do about that. The best you can do is search the forums for solutions. Sorry!

Also, right-click to open tracking would be awesome, indeed. But I have a more serious problem:
