Chinchilla Minimap  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.
- Position: Removed options to move the objectives tracker, because conflicts. Please use Quester, MoveAnything, or rObjectiveTrackerMover instead.
- Appearance: Rearranged the config window slightly.
- Revert "Position: Only move the actual Minimap, not the entire freaking MinimapCluster."
This reverts commit 9b2f8a7bd59b97f8ecd343b0498750b438d7e917.
- Position: Only move the actual Minimap, not the entire freaking MinimapCluster. ~lart ckknight
- Appearance: Removed the "waffle-like" texture that shows in the blue quest objective area.
- Leave MoveAnything as an optional dependency for now.
- Revert "Force the MoveButtons, Position and ShowHide modules into a disabled state if MoveAnything is installed."
This reverts commit 08f01cee3ea86cf2e16c65ac36ba072dc66c8a3a.
- Force the MoveButtons, Position and ShowHide modules into a disabled state if MoveAnything is installed.
- Move a comment.

Mod Incompatibility Error?

Apparently, I have two mods not playing nice with each other. MinimapTarget and Chincilla. I'm posting this on both. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

DisableMinimapTarget has become obsolete as of Patch 4.3. Blizzard added options to the tracking menu that will disable target and focus blips on the Minimap.

Uninstall DisableMinimapTarget and the errors will go away.

Tracking Dots

Hi! Love Chinchilla, but have been trying to add the "Charmed" set of icon blips into the addon since Blipstick is no longer working for me. I successfully did this, however the icons seem to have a round, white border around them despite what I do in Photoshop. I'm not sure if I'm not saving it correctly (as a .tga, 32 bits/pixel) or what. :\ I have tried 24 bits and 16 bits, which did not seem to correct the issue. I followed the format of the other blip images under the folders "Art" and "TrackingDots" (because I noticed they are different). Also, I edited both of the trackingdots.lua files in the folders "Modules" and "TrackingDots" to add the correct/corresponding image paths in.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

All of the blip textures suffer from this and I think it's largely due to them being in .tga format in the first place. Blizzard's default blips are in .blp format and don't have the white border around them.

Ahh.. poop. I don't see it (the funky border) on any of the other blips within Chinchilla, and they're .tga. I guess I'm out of luck for now, as I have no idea how to fix it. Thanks for the response!
