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).

    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.

    The last update seems to have caused issues with the Vehicle Seats element. The texture representing the vehicle stretches across most of the screen now. Generally it isn't a huge issue, I've disabled showing the seat element, since my need to interact with it is incredibly rare at best.

  • #1355

    I think I see what caused it. I'll have a new alpha up soon.

    I said nothing :P. My fault, Garrison button wasn't enabled. I activated and workds fine :)

  • #1348

    Is there a way to change the scale of the minimap buttons independent to the scale of the minimap? I like having a larger minimap but it makes the minimap buttons _huge_

  • #1349

    Not yet but I might be able to patch something in.
