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).

    Worked great, I love you!

    I was getting a critical error all night last night, usually at a /rl. Swatter game me a Chinchilla error, then went Fatal exception. I temporarily switched back to Squeenix (which I dislike), and no more critical errors. The problem may be with the location text and the new 10/25 flag that comes up when you are in a raid.

    Per BigFire, can the default height of the quest objective mover be set larger at least. With Chinchilla active, it only shows one or two quests unless you use the script he mentions.

    hi, i have encountered a bug after updating a few hours ago:
    new Objectives window gets offsetted left when i turn on this addon. Wasnt an issue with previous version, only happened when i updated to 2.0.9
    Maybe it's because of size of my screen?
  • #293
    @Pekti52: Sounds like a game problem as I can't replicate this. Does it happen when Chinchilla is the only addon enabled?

    @BigFire: That's beyond the scope of this addon I'm afraid. :D

    @Anei: I'm glad you like it. The flag is work in progress! :D
  • #291
    thank you for the update!
  • #292
    one little thing - is it possible to move (or even better, hide) the little flag that shows when inside an instance from the lfg tool? The little red heroic banner with a '5' for example.

    Thanks :D

    This is more or less a feature request. Blizzard have removed the ability for us to re-size the quest track window via mouse over feature. I can still set the height via a script: /run WatchFrame:SetHeight(500), but that gets overwritten by Chinchilla every time I login.

    Can you add a feature to adjust the height and width of the window?

    Glad to see a new version out. Upon installing the new version, I had to go in and redo some options (no biggie). I've tried twice in a row to change the default map shape to "square" and I've received a Wow error each time, the game closes, and I get the error reporter. Of course, this seems like a game problem and not an addon issue... but I wanted to mention it here anyways. Not quite sure what's happening.

    Hey guys, great addon. Found it just a few minutes ago while looking for a replacement to my SimpleMinimap. Love the expander feature, but I am curious if it is possible to have a toggle to leave it expanded permanently? I multibox and one of my biggest issues is the size I'm able to make the minimap on my herbalist while he's on a smaller window, makes it hard to see herbs and ore, etc. Great addon though, thanks!
  • #287
    Version 2.0.9 solves most if not all of the problems reported to me by you. Please post a ticket if any more problems arise.
  • #286
    One of the reason the Location bar seems to be locked is it has a new indicator flag that hangs from it that shows your instance type.

    I wish Blizzard would make up their mind on how they want the objectives frame to work, that is just annoying.

    Also, the Mini-map button for the new LFG tool isn't movable currently.

    Just pointing these out as they are things I have noticed, figured it might help when making revisions.

  • #285
    Having two main problems since the patch... for one, the default location bar is back (as a few people have mentioned) and there doesn't seem to be a way to remove it. For two, the objectives frame is now hard-locked to the minimap and there is no way to move that either (not like before).

    Hoping you can fix these soon. Keep up the good work!
