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).

    This is something that I would REALLY like as a feature as well.  I LOVE this addon but having the expanded map overlaying right over your toon is very annoying.

  • #1082

    I'll add it in the next release then. :p

  • #1071

    Why doesnt this Addon show my actual target on minimap, is there any option i might have disabled?

  • #1072

    It's possible it's been disabled. Open the Tracking menu and make sure "Target" is ticked.

    If that doesn't work then something else might be causing a conflict.

    Let me know if this helps! :)

    thanks a lot, it was just disabled in the tracking menu. Everthing else is fine. great Addon :)

  • #1065

    I love this addon!

    I'm having a problem with my quest objectives tho. When I have the addon, only 2 or 3 quests show up on the right side of my screen and if I have a quest where I need to use an item, I have to dig around in my bags to find it when I'm supposed to be able to click a mini icon on the right side of the screen. Anyway around this?

  • #1067

    To solve the "2-3 quests" mystery, open Chinchilla's config and find the Quest Tracker section. There, you will be able to resize the tracker to your liking. I've provided this as the tracker does not like being moved and will stop automatically resizing itself when new quests are added.

    As for the items mystery, I reckon you've got the tracker too close to the edge of the screen and the item buttons are bring pushed off the side. Try moving the tracker to the left and see if that helps.

    Hi, thanks for keeping this great addon alive and updated! You are doing very good job. I just wanted to ask if there are any commands for your addon? I would like to switch profiles between my DPS and Solo positioning of Minimap just by writing a macro and additng it to my grid/bartender macros.......sofar I couldnt find any commads. Any help would be appreciated. Thx a lot

  • #1064

    Yes there is! Sort of. To change profles, use this: /script Chinchilla.db:SetProfile("<your profile here>")

    It is case sensitive and the profile name needs to be inside quote marks or you will get a Lua error, so for example:

    /script Chinchilla.db:SetProfile("Solo")

    /script Chinchilla.db:SetProfile("DPS")

    Hope this helps!

    Thx a lot :D /bow

    thanks as i love your map the best out of all that i have used, i did try moving like you said but that didnt move them either... just so you know
  • #1063

    I didn't think it would after seeing your screenshot. Those unit frames are new. The "world state" mover only moves the mini score board at the top of the screen.

    I very rarely PvP but I'll look into it.

    cheers mr your a star

    Hello, I am having trouble getting the world map to open when clicking on the round number next to the quest.. Is this something that has changed and no longer doable with the new updates or will this become available again.  btw, love this addon, my favorite map of all times! Thank you for all you do to keep it running
