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
  • Remove hard-embeded SharedMediaWidgets.
    The library has been fixed recently and this is no longer necessary.
  • last sprites
  • More sprite sheets
  • Update gitignore - include necessary updates to LibSharedMedia-3.0
  • gitignore
  • Nandini Tracking Dots
  • Minimal changes necessary for addon to LOAD
    * Artwork all needs modification
  • TrackingDots: More fixes for the blip maps.
  • 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.

I've been using this for a while now and it quickly became my favorite minimap mod... lots of config options.

I'm not sure if it's a bug but when I change zones the location of the minimap changes. This happens no matter if I select locked or not in the options.

Ok, I have to take that back. After doing some research on it, looking for add-on's that could interfere etc. (other minimap add-on's) and also checking your bugtracker I also found titan panel and chinchilla to be incompatible. Although I run the newest titan version the "fix" seems not to be included yet. I hope this problem gets fixed by titan in the future (if they're the culprit).

So whoever runs into the problem should try to deactivate his/her add-on's to check first, preferably titan if existing, to see if that fixes it.

Zone Location and Title Box

The Zone Location or the Title Box are will not hide. I have check and unchecked the boxes, reloading my ui after each time and nothing. It is really annoying =( Any idea what could be the problem?

Here is a pic of what i am talking about...lower right side.




EDIT: Never mind, after some more poking around, I found the way to remove it. Awesome mod btw, using it over simpleminimap which caused me to crash while crossing zones for some reason.

I just got it and I really like it (though I wish the chinchillas showed when you put the minimap in the upper right corner)

Anyways! I use Tom Tom and found a little problem...





When i hover my mouse over the circled waypoint in #1 it shows the tooltip ok but when i hover the circled arrow in #2 the map covers the tooltip. Is there any way to resolve this?


Thank you =)

Please share with me how you did this - I am checking /unchecking the boxes obvious to me with no luck.

Minimap

It is very strange... whenever I use the Chinchilla mod I can make the mini map any look i want and it works perfectly, as well as move it to a location of my choice. But as soon as i change zones, or open my bags the minimap jumps to the top left side of the screen... is there anyway around this bug or a way to save the position??? cause it is very annoying to have to move the minimap everytime i start teh game or do change zones :P

Version linked a few posts down from wowace might also now be out-of-date.

There is a release version v1.2 at wowace dated 15 Oct 2008. Here is the project page.
