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).

    Is there anyway to move the LFG/Assembling a group tooltip? Atm I have the minimap in the bottom left and the tooltip falls off the screen to the left :(
  • #404
    Not at the moment sadly. I haven't added it yet as I've kept the minimap on the top-right in my current UI.
    I'll have a go at this though, I have some ideas.

    I have suddenly got a yellow ring around my player arrow on the minimap, its not fully colored and range cirkel is turned off in settings.
  • #398
    I believe that is the "detection range" ring of _NPCScan.Overlay.
    Overlay or /npcscan.

    Since recent upgrade of chincilla, the LFG (eyeball)button is missing (though enabled in chincilla options). Anyone else have this problem?
  • #390
    Thought it might be mini map button frame problem, however, when i disable chincilla, the lfg button comes back so it's definitely chincilla.
  • #391
    LFG off by default in newest release.
  • #433
    enabled it but still doesnt show. weird

    coordinates seem to be missing for me. everything else seems to be working fine. but no matter what my settings. i can't get coordinates on-screen any more. any ideas? thanks!

    Same issues as some. Tracker button just gone. Trying to move minimap via h,v results in undesired movement effect. Profile feature just broken. It will not accept any profile swaps and/or resets.
  • #383
    Complete WTF removal still exhibits tracker button vanishing. And minimap moves improperly on h,v it seems when scale is changed. Dragging still works as intended, just not h,v movements.

    I also have this problem. Using various "Show/Hide" features also don't work. Hide Clock, position for example do work, whereas hiding the location bar doesn't work.

    I'm thinking showing the tracking button is just broken, just like the hiding function from my statement above.

    This is a severe issue imo, the tracking button is one of the more useful features regarding minimap.

    I use an addon named minimap button frame available on this site to put all my minimap buttons into one easy to use frame and clean up my minimap. However it appears that from probably some fault of MBF the minimap button it creates won't attach to Chinchilla minimap when you adjust the size of it or make it square/rounded top etc etc.

    Even if you are able to get the button attached, it will always be detached upon next login. Is there a way you can force it to follow the many wonderful layouts you have created and get the MBF button reattached to the minimap?
