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.

    Hi. Recently the addon has stopped showing my broken gear. I can move the Durability frame etc, but when my gear is broken nothing shows up.

  • #1428

    I have this problem for ages, yet I am not sure if Chinchilla is causing the problem or if it is TitanPanel - the only 2 addons I use, interacting with the durability icon as far as I know (maybe DragEmAll does too?) - sometimes it works properly, other times the icon shows at the default location and not at my modified one and worst, not showing up at all.

    Disableing either AddOn seems to solve the problem, so my guess is that there is an interaction problem with TitanPanel ...

    Is there any way to display the time with this addon?

    Your installed version is out of date. Please download and install v2.7.2 from this page or via the Curse Client.

    This really needs a 6.1 update.... all kinds of problems with it.

  • #1418

    What kind of problems specifically?

    I play on EU realms so 6.1 isn't live here yet. All I am aware of is that WoW thinks Chinchilal is out of date and that the durability indicator isn't always behaving itself.

    Well, the quest tracker isn't updating properly, for one. And it gives this lua error:

    Chinchilla is still hiding the Durability Figure by default. You need to add a visibility toggle to the Show / Hide menu to allow it to be made visible.

  • #1416

    This is really annoying and needs to get fixed asap, please.

    Mounting passenger mount bring Durability frame visible, otherwise it is hidden and I miss alert about broken gear :(

  • #1414

    No matter what I do, or which profile I use (make new one too) the minimap always "jumps" back to the middle of the screen, just over the action bars. I don't know how to fix it .___.

  • #1410

    Not seeing the Garrison button on the minimap now... am I missing a setting, or is this not updated for Warlords?

    Edit: I do want to mention that this addon is very well done. Just what I was looking for. :)

    You might be missing a setting.

    In "Show / Hide" there are options to show or hide the button.  You'll want either a gold (always) or silver (on mouseover) tick for the garrison report button to show.  If that doesn't work, then a different addon is hiding it.

  • #1412

    Ahh yes. Show / Hide wasn't enabled. As soon as I checked that it showed up! Thank you!
