Chinchilla Minimap  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v2.12.2, Classic: v2.12.2
by: ckknight, Ravendwyr

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

    https://github.com/Ravendwyr/Chinchilla/issues/60
    Item #2.
  • Scale Instance Difficulty with Minimap

    And ... GARRISON_SHOW_LANDING_PAGE looks to be the winner (or loser?).
  • Revert ""Fix" garrison location"
  • Revert "Fix buttons on area change"
  • Fix buttons on area change
    Blizz is moving garrison back on some instance/area changes.... keep it where we want it.
  • "Fix" garrison location
    https://github.com/Ravendwyr/Chinchilla/issues/53
    This is a really ugly, really quick and dirty "fix" (ok workaround) for what Blizzard is doing. Basically wait until Blizzard moves it and move it back.
  • Update Expander.lua
    https://github.com/Ravendwyr/Chinchilla/issues/46
    This was an ask, and I was already looking at Expander. Basically Instead of disabling all mouse interaction with expanded minimap, just disable click events.
    I have not noticed any side effects...
  • Update Expander
    1. Fix Expander opacity. For some reason setting minimap alpha is not adjusting opacity when expanded. Set parent of Minimap opacity.
    2. Provide option to Expander to hide when player is in combat (REGEN_DISABLED)
  • Yay! Patch!
    Updated sprite sheets to work with changes.
  • Recreate .gitignore

    The library has been fixed recently and this is no longer necessary.

  • Nandini Tracking Dots
  • Minimal changes necessary for addon to LOAD
    * Artwork all needs modification

  • Core: Bump Interface number to 80300.
  • TrackingDots: Updated for Patch 8.3.
  • Update README.md
  • Tabs to spaces.
    I'm an idiot and I need to learn how to read wiki pages.
  • Fixed LibStub path.
  • Don't package the config.yml file.
  • Disable licence output.

lock shape

How can I lock the shape of the mini map. I like round. I move it to next to my char. when gathering things. but it will often switch to a different shape when I go to move it back to its default position. irritating to have to go into config to change it back continuously.

I use this AddOn for my clean UI and I like it a lot. But I miss two functions there:

First I would like to adjust the auto zoom to a specific distance.

Second I would like to toggle the calendar by rightclicking the minimap.

If you would add these features to Chinchilla or if someone would explain to me how I could do it myself that would make me happy. I know the basics of LUA and Notepad++, so the only thing I need to know is what code I have to put in which place of which file.

v2.8 is a "Niantic Labs" update where instead of fixing a broken feature I have disabled it temporarily for now.

The good news:
- No more errors! (hopefully)
- No more stretched blip textures!
- No longer out of date!

The bad news:
- Custom blip sets are disabled as I have not had time to fix the artwork files. They will be worked on when I do get time however and the feature will return when the "atlases" are up to date.

At least it's better than nothing, right? Right??

Dots, mobs and npc's

Hi there - I have used your addon for ages. However, with the lastest patch (7/17/16), the mobs show up as a green exclamation and they are really oversized. I thought there was a way to resize the dots, etc. but I can't seem to find it. I have a screenshot but I'm not sure how to post it here.

This addon needs to be updated to handle the new texture commands for the minimap. Currently the minimap textures are vastly distorted.

Hello,

for one of my characters the tracking option for fishing is missing. Tracking for minerals, quests... works.
On other characters the option is there and working.

Any idea why?

Don't know if this has something to do with my problem - but this is the character i boosted from level 6 to 90.


Regards

I personally have the Garrison button set to "show on hover" and I click the button to toggle the report.
I thought I should add to this previous comment, that SexyMap is able to "hide" the Garrison minimap button, but whatever method is occurring with the addon to perform the hide, any keybinding set will still toggle the Garrison frame. I'm not sure why this continues to work with SexyMap, but not Chinchilla, unless the methods by which the minimap buttons are hidden are drastically different.

Again, I thought I would mention this in case you (the author) wanted to investigate and attempt to replicate in order to allow for Chinchilla to hide the button but block any other interaction with the button (via keybinding).

Chinchilla does not provide its own boss frames, but there should be options to hide them in the ShowHide section of the config.

That's an error with Enchantrix, not Chinchilla.

The Expander doesn't have a range circle yet but I can look into adding one. As for transparency, there is an option to change this in the Expander section of the config.

This is a bug in Blizzard's code. I believe SexyMap suffers the same problem.

bug range-display on big map

Hi,
when I activate Expander, the range display vanishes. But particularly there it was useful. Would you kindly fix that? edit: Also the compas would be useful in Expander. By the way, it was also cool if you could add Transparent-mode to Expander (not "opacity"), showing only symbols, like players, lumber, anything but the floor; Like opacity but keeping Symbols! For reference, Sexy map has a "transparent" hud-map.

Another thing: Without expander, it would be nice if I could make my map much larger, but without making all the addon buttons, clock, and text bigger, just the minimap, so that I can actually see something with a quick glimpse on a flatscreen, in combat.

Rotation - there is a bug, when you rotate the "form" it also rotates so you have a vivid square inside that border.
A circle-form (as an option) would totally fix that
