Chinchilla Minimap  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.7.2
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

Tagging as v2.7.2.

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

Ethan Centaurai:
- Reverted all code related to the ObjectiveTrackerFrame back to how it was in Version 2.7.
- Position: Applied Cybeloras' band-aid pending total module overhaul.
- Position: Fixed a bug that caused the vehicle seats artwork to appear stretched across the screen.
- Appearance: Updated the custom blip maps to match Blizzard's layout in Patch 6.0.3.
- Position: Restored feature to move the objectives tracker, but it is disabled if MoveAnything or Quester is installed.
- Core: Unregister show/hide events from the Garrison Report button.
- ShowHide: The Garrison button is now set to always show by default.
- Appearance: Re-added options to hide quest banners and collapse button.
- ShowHide: Buttons should no longer remain stuck to the cursor if they get hidden while being dragged around the minimap.
- ShowHide: Allowed the dungeon difficulty flag to appear when hovering the cursor over the minimap.
- Core: Removed MoveAnything from optional dependencies list.

I've been using this for a while now and it quickly became my favorite minimap mod... lots of config options.

I'm not sure if it's a bug but when I change zones the location of the minimap changes. This happens no matter if I select locked or not in the options.

Ok, I have to take that back. After doing some research on it, looking for add-on's that could interfere etc. (other minimap add-on's) and also checking your bugtracker I also found titan panel and chinchilla to be incompatible. Although I run the newest titan version the "fix" seems not to be included yet. I hope this problem gets fixed by titan in the future (if they're the culprit).

So whoever runs into the problem should try to deactivate his/her add-on's to check first, preferably titan if existing, to see if that fixes it.

Zone Location and Title Box

The Zone Location or the Title Box are will not hide. I have check and unchecked the boxes, reloading my ui after each time and nothing. It is really annoying =( Any idea what could be the problem?

Here is a pic of what i am talking about...lower right side.




EDIT: Never mind, after some more poking around, I found the way to remove it. Awesome mod btw, using it over simpleminimap which caused me to crash while crossing zones for some reason.

I just got it and I really like it (though I wish the chinchillas showed when you put the minimap in the upper right corner)

Anyways! I use Tom Tom and found a little problem...





When i hover my mouse over the circled waypoint in #1 it shows the tooltip ok but when i hover the circled arrow in #2 the map covers the tooltip. Is there any way to resolve this?


Thank you =)

Please share with me how you did this - I am checking /unchecking the boxes obvious to me with no luck.

Minimap

It is very strange... whenever I use the Chinchilla mod I can make the mini map any look i want and it works perfectly, as well as move it to a location of my choice. But as soon as i change zones, or open my bags the minimap jumps to the top left side of the screen... is there anyway around this bug or a way to save the position??? cause it is very annoying to have to move the minimap everytime i start teh game or do change zones :P

Version linked a few posts down from wowace might also now be out-of-date.

There is a release version v1.2 at wowace dated 15 Oct 2008. Here is the project page.
