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).

    +1, Quest tracker position is broken since 2.7.1. Disabling Chinchilla fixes quest tracker. Chinchilla quest tracker relocation resets on disabling (being enabled quest tracker position can be adjusted to right spot, but has red taint).

  • #1375

    By "red taint" I meant a mark, that quest tracker is movable. Taint because it's unusable in this mode :). Sorry for bad wording.

    Tested 2.7.2 - looks fine in regards to quest tracker positioning.

    v2.7.2 changes everything back to how it was in v2.7. I am so tired and fed up of this.

    What did you mean by "red taint" though?

    Did another test with ALL mods disabled, but chinchilla - still tracker positioning issues.

    +more tries:

    Chinchilla Quest tracker Vertical position offset under 135 gets reset to -480 or something like that. Vertical position offset set to 135 or higher - quest tracker remains where it was set, though settings show some other value.

    Strange behavior.

    i cant get any buttons to display other than the tracking one.  what am i doing wrong :|

  • #1363

    I keep trying to move the minimap down just a bit so it doesn't sit directly at the top of the screen.  It works, till I enter and instance or relog then it's moved back up to it's original spot.  :( 

  • #1366

    Do you use a Broker display addon such as Bazooka that pushes other frames downwards? If you do, turning that feature off should solve it.

    Whenever I enter combat, most of the minimap disappears and reappears as soon as I'm out of combat.

    EDIT: nevermind, it looks like something reset the combat opacity slider

    I've had a lot of trouble with this addon in terms of things attached to the minimap.  My minimap sits at the bottom of the screen and as time goes on it seems like more and more things are missing.

    Boss frames, arena frames, the new garrison status button, and vehicle seats are all sections that I can't seem to get on screen due to the map being at the bottom.  Any workarounds?

  • #1358

    There are indeed!  Open the config using "/chin" and then select MoveButtons or Position on the left-hand side.

    MoveButtons allows you to move the minimap buttons around the minimap or even detach them from the minimap altogether.

    Position will allow you to move the various larger frames around the screen, however arena and boss frames are not yet supported as moving them often causes taint issues.

    I hope this helps!

    Aye, it was an accident. I forgot to specify a default setting when I added the rest of the code. :(

    That was a little daft. Having the garrison report turned off by default had me scratching my head ;-)

  • #1362

    Oh wow, yeah that was the solution, I'm not sure how I didn't figure that out earlier, thank you :)

  • #1361

    They might be hidden in the ShowHide section of the config. The current release package v2.7 hid the garrison report button by default by accident. Alpha package v2.7-16 and onwards solved that though.

    I think that's where my problem lies.  I've moved my vehicle seating thing, but it never shows with Chinchilla enabled.

    Same with the Garrison button, no matter where I move it on the minimap, either attached or unattached, I can never see it with Chinchilla enabled.
