Chinchilla Minimap  Updated this week!  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

map moves?

every time i log in/out or switch to a different character i have to move the map back into position. it doesn't move from the bottom center position but does move up just enough to cover 1/2 of the bars i have positioned above it.

if it helps or matters i'm using nui with the built in mini-map disabled.

thanks

Thanks for the quick reply. Okay, so I'm not getting a conflict with some other addon and you've just confirmed the same result.

So... here's an odd thought. What if instead of "hiding" the icon, you simply moved it off screen by -9999. Would that work? Is that possible?

Perhaps someone else can test this:

When I have the garrison button hidden on the minimap, but I have the garrison panel set to a keybinding, the keybinding will not toggle the panel. Apparently having the garrison button hidden effectively blocks or prevents the panel from being toggled via a keybinding. I would definitely chop this up to a bug, but for the moment I'm having no luck coming up with a viable work around.

Odd. I don't understand why this would be happening. :|a
I'll keep an eye on it. The entire module is due for a complete re-write soon anyway.

Yep, that was my bad. I forgot to save the Position.lua file before zipping everything up.
This is due to the quest objectives window being re-named from WatchFrame to ObjectiveTrackerFrame in Patch 6.0.
The code is there, I simply forgot to "switch it on" for this release. Sorry.

EDIT: This alpha package on WoWace is 100% WoD compatible and should fix the odd coordinates box behaviour. I'll push a new release here after Patch 6.0 goes live.

I did not make the artwork and sadly lack the skills to make more.

However if you or someone you know wants to make some artwork they are more than welcome to.

2.5.14's quest tracker resize control is still working just fine in wow patch 5.4.
I took it out as I felt it was outside of this addon's purpose, but I will be bringing it back Soon(TM) as I have received several messages asking me to do so.

Quest Tracker options gone in 2.6 = obscured tracker

Is there some reason the quest tracker option to change the height of the tracker was removed?
2.5.14's quest tracker resize control is still working just fine in wow patch 5.4.

After updating to 2.6, the quest tracker ended up partially obscured by the minimap, being far too tall.
The only fix within 2.6 was to unclamp from screen and drag the quest tracker partially off-screen.
Reverting back to 2.5.14 restored the quest tracker to its expected location, below the minimap.

Thanks for such a cool addon, it is on my short list of addons I'd really HATE to ever do without.

I have a problem with the yellow quest target arrow which is driving me crazy. Namely, that I can't get rid of it if I have, even briefly, showed the quest targets in the map and toggled them off again, none of them being tracked either. While I'm sure this is a problem in the Blizzards end and I seem to recall modders couldn't do much for the locations of the map icon elements, I was wondering if it would be possible to retexture that arrow with transparent texture? After all Chinchilla is capable retexturing the tracking points.

I don't know if I can fix it or if it's something that Blizzard needs to fix themselves.

I'll keep an eye out for fixes or a workaround but for now there's nothing I can do. Sorry!
