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).

    It seems that if I set an alarm, it seems that when it goes off the clock appears under the minimap and is glowing even if I disabled showing the clock. The only way to remove it again is to go back into options and re-uncheck the box to show clock.

    Also is it just me or is the zoom settings on my minimap reverting back to defaults on each log in? I like to have my minimap zoomed all the way out, but it seems it will revert back to blizzard default zoom settings if I reload or log in and out.

    Same problem on the clock topic, haven't noticed to zoom problem.

    I'm on a normal live 3.1.2 (awaiting patch maint to finish). Does chinchilla allow me to move the watch frame? Possibly I need a differentaddon to do this or I'm missing some function of chinchilla.
  • #141
    So when exactly do you plan on adding the option to move the watch frame properly?
    cause im a bit tyred of having my quest traker and arena frames etc showing under the minimap just becase...
    the reason for the use of addons is to have more freedom configuring the UI, not to be tied like this.
    If the other map addons can move it dont see why you cant. and to be honest i find chichilla superior to the other map addons in all other aspect so i realy didnt want to change :S

    please fix it, if you need help just ask il see what i can do.

    The quest timer was mas merged into the new Watch Frame in Patch 3.1, so the options were removed. Are you playing on a server which hasn't updated to 3.1?

    So I've installed a clean Chinchilla and as long as the map doesn't move the watch frame off screen everything works fine. I don't seem to be able to find the option to move the watch frame. Possibly I'm just blind and unable to find where the ability to mvoe the watch frame from the default below the minimap option is. Or does chinchilla not support moving the watch frame.

    I have been looking for a replacement for SimpleMiniMap and it looks like I found one - thanks :)

    I have just one request, in SimpleMiniMap you could move the questtimer frame, any chance you could/would add this to chinchilla?
  • #135
    I don't know what is happening to you. I can only assume that it's been installed incorrectly, or some files haven't been updated recently. The saved data format was changed in v2.0, so maybe the settings aren't being saved properly.

    Delete the entire Chinchilla directory and reinstall the most recent version of the addon. If that doesn't work, then I don't know what will.

    I seem to have determined the issue. The tracking frame default to the bottom of the minimap and if hyou have your map so it is offscreen it gives you the error when you try to track things. I've gone through the movable frame options but cannot seem to find a way to move the achievement/quest tracking frame.
  • #136
    Whenever I try and track quest or achievement I get an error that tells me my tracking queue is full. I've done the addon shuffle and determined chinchilla is what is causing this. Any suggestions to be able to use Chinchilla and track achievements?
  • #134
    Also, the lock option does not appear to work.
  • #133
    Any reason why Chinchilla would not be saving it's location when you log out? I have removed the mode, removed the lua files and everything reseting it all back to default and it still has the problem.
  • #132
    Every time I reload my UI or log in Chinchilla moves itself back to an old position I had set for it a while back. Is there a way to stop this from happening?
  • #130
    You need to ask the author of SmartBuff about that. Chinchilla does not support the showing/hiding/position of other mods' minimap buttons (except when the shape of the minimap is changed).

    This will be fixed in the next release.

    No. You will need a separate addon to do that.
