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.

If you're interested in using Blipstick's code to render a blip set, let me know. But yea, right now I'm not even using this addon so I probably won't update it.

Awe shucks.. Well if you want a current working blip replacement
check out:http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/dera...nimapblips#c15

Its minimalist. like not being able to select different sets.. but it has what it needs to see the new blips..

Right now we are Frankensteining the ObjectIcons.tga to get the ones we love from your sets overlayed onto these with the new 6.0 icons..

Update for WoD

I love this addon I use the charm textures and WoW just does not feel that same without this..

Here is what I see is broken..

When I have Blip loaded.. I no longer see the passively tracked things on the mini map..

Example rares with the skulls do not show up..

Mining nodes in Garrison for non miners do not show up..

Things like Garrison Cache and other Passively tracked blips do not show up on Mini Map.

So If you could update Blipstick to fix this I would greatly appreciate this.

Thank you

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?
