About Chinchilla Minimap

Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Allows changing of blip size, border style, shape of the map (doesn't have to be circular, or even square, lots of options are available), size, etc.
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Show your location coordinates.
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
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).
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap.
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 colour-blindness
Use the mouse-wheel to zoom the minimap and zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).

Tagging as v2.7.4.


Ethan Centaurai:
    - Bump Interface number to 60200.
    - ShowHide: Fixed an oversight that broke the "unread invites" option. Closes ticket 187.
    - ShowHide: Revert back to the reparenting method to hide frames. Should fix problems with the durability indicator.
    - Ping: Fixed a rare error that occurred when a player's class cannot be found for whatever reason.

    Is there a way to remove the Flag Carriers that appear under the map with this addon?

  • #1150

    Not yet.

    Is there an option to remove the silly Chinchilla in the lower left corner of the minimap?

    Use a different border type than Chinchilla.   Took me a while to remember that tonite while trying to get rid of it myself!

    Love the addon, no likey the blob. =P

  • #1145

    Thanks :)

  • #1143

    I'll work on a "Sans Rodent" skin that gets rid of the chinchilla.

    Critter haters. =P

    Since the current update, the Blizzard location bar is appearing underneath the Chinchilla location bar. I can't seem to fix this.

    I can't replicate this even with clean SavedVariables but I'll keep an eye out just in case.

  • #1144

    I figured it out. It was simpleMiniMap. For some reason, after I updated Chinchilla, it started showing the the Blizz location bar under the Chinchilla one. When I disabled simpleMinimap, it corrected the problem. Didn't need SMM anymore, so it's gone.  Sorry for any trouble.

    Oh, and any chance we might get a Horde skin for the minimap? I have always used the Alliance one since I haven't much liked the others, but a red Horde one would be nice to have. :)


    Thank you for this addon. :)

    I am currently unable to move arena frames. So if I move the minimap to the lower part of the screen, I can't see them at all. :/

  • #1141

    This is a known "issue".

    Chinchilla has no support for arena frames at all but I am looking into adding it, but I need to sort a few other things out first.

  • #1134

    With Chinchilla turned on my tooltips don't work. Half the time I get no tooltip once in awhile I can get a tooltip to show up a few pixels away from the dot on the map (such as mining nodes). If I disable Chinchilla then it works perfectly.

  • #1140

    This is not a Chinchilla bug. Chinchilla only changes the art of the blips, and it is impossible for addons to modify anything else about them.

  • #1133

    I'm having a hard time sizing and positioning my quest tracker.  I have both moveanything and chinchilla installed.  If i disable the quest tracker module in chinchilla, The position reverts to a default appearance but I'm unable to actually move it with MoveAnything.  When I reset the quest tracker frame to default position in MoveAnything and try to use Chinchilla to position it I can get it to cooperate only as long as "movable" is checked in the positions module, which would be fine but the frame is colored orange in that state.  When I uncheck "movable", I assume it would simply lock it's position, but instead it reverts to its original position.

    I use alot of addons, and for all I know there could be more than just moveanything affecting the quest tracker, but I wondered if anyone had worked this problem out recently.  I saw a bug report from 2010 ont he ace site that said conflicts with moveanything were fixed.

  • #1139

    Chinchilla and MoveAnything have never worked together without causing problems.

    Disable the Position module inside Chinchilla and use MoveAnything to relocate your UI elements instead.
