Blipstick  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.0.1.12-Release
by: Tekkub [More]
Blipstick is a simple addon to change the minimap blip textures. I wrote it because I didn't like the big huge '!' and '?' Blizzard used, so I adjusted the sizes a bit. Since then I've added in blips from other addons and created a config panel so the user can select the set of blips they like.

New blip textures are always welcome, send a pull request on GitHub.

Visit my site for more great addons.
Please send all bugs, feature requests and questions to addons@tekkub.net

I use it, that's the only reason I write my addons. I share them because that makes people think I'm nice, and 15k downloads says that some people are willing to try an addon that doesn't have screenshots.

Yeah if we'd have to do that with every addon we could reitre by the time we made a choice. I deeply appreciate authors' work but if an author (and in this case, Tekkub is a highly respected author) fails to provide a screenshot very few people will actually use the addon. Subsequently, one could ask what is the point of wiritng an addon when hardly anyone uses it?

screens?

Why do so many authors, after spending the time and effort creating a nice mod, fail to take the extra two mins and snap a screenshot? I'm not trying to be factitious, nor am I complaining (though it'd be nice if you had at least one image). I just really want to know if there's a reason.. or not.

Same, for some reason it does this on console reload.

/edit: found out that Chinchilla has blip selection built-in. This was the bug

It seem that Blizzard changed something again with minimap blips. All the blips are small, no matter which textures are selected. Can this be tweaked back?

Any chance that you'd make a charmed version for the raid members class colored dots aswell ?

is it possible for you to add party/raid to this addon? since blizzard has fixed the issue with blips scaling (or, no longer scaling) with the UI size, they are back to be huge. so, the party/raid blips are enormous on my minimap, and is driving me insane. greatly appreciated!

Can you make it so that when a blip (ie a quest giver, mining, herb, tracking node, etc) appears on the minimap that there is a audible sound? of course it could be config to make the sound for which type blip user wanted as well as the sounds for each blip type. This would be awesome!!

Thank you and I look forward to your input!
The short answer is no because this information is not accessible to the API because the dots are rendered with the mini-map.
