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 a way to set the black area of the minimap (when you're inside, or in a cave, etc) to clear? Not really addon specific, and I'd doubt it, but can anyone c/d?

    Objectives. There you want to make sure the check-box for Advanced Objectives Tracking is checked. This will allow you to move the frame out from under the mini-map. Once you are done positioning the frame where you want it, make sure to check the Disable Mouseover box.

    Hope this helps =)

    I am having a similar problem to the Quest/Achievement tracking frame, how ever in my case I can't seem to be able to seperate the Arena frame for opposing team players. I ahve resolved the Quest/Achievement frame problem but can not seem to find a solution to my current predicament.

    for some reason the map keeps on resetting itself either when i reload the ui or when i log out. ill check the settings, they are still there, but it will display the default settings map. ive already uninstalled cleared variables and reinstalled , with the same issue happening. any ideas?
  • #273
    maybe add a option to move the iron man{gear dura} and loot window

    I plan to re-add support for the quest/achievement tracking frame when Patch 3.3 comes out as Blizzard appear to have made it non-movable in the latest PTR build.

    Three addon minimap buttons are not moving along the path of my square-shaped map.

    They are: WebDKP, WIM, and Gatherer.

    Contact the authors of those addons and ask them to add support for the GetMinimapShape() API provided by this addon.

    I love Chinchilla, it's soft and cuddly and it even makes my minimap look good!

    More info: The quest tracker is by default locked under the map. If you have advanced quest tracking enabled(default gui), this resolves the issue of chinchilla locking out the quest tracker. However you must disable mouseover and move the quest tracker away from the minimap before you move it, to prevent it from being hidden offscreen.

    After a bit of tinkering, I've discovered a 'bug'(since I don't know if it's a bug or a feature) that chinchilla will block all quest tracking whenever the map is in a non-standard location. You can enable the 'location' submodule, but if you move the map, it seems to hog the quest tracker and won't allow you to display any quests. If you move it back, or reset the position of the map, the quest tracker comes back.

    When I trying to track any quest by shift-clicking on it in my quest log with Chinchilla Minimap enabled, WoW says that I can't track any more quests...

    I have a bug with combat opacity. I like to hide the minimap in combat for my custom ui. When set to zero combat opacity, the minimap hides, but the blips still show through. Also the feature flat out doesn't work in dungeons or caves and such.

    I had SimpleMinimap installed before, but for some reason it disabled my minimap for my priest, tryed everything to get it shown again, but then i installed this addone, and had the same problem, no minimap on priest, any 1 know why?
