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).

    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?

    I have the same problem with Chinchilla.
    In the beginning (2 days ago) the minimap was just hidden and appeared (including all the icon buttons) only when I held my mouse over it. Now (today) it completly vanished and the strange thing: even when i deactivate Chinchilla the minimap is still gone.

    Might be a different addon or a library which cases this mess.

    Is it possible that you have Macaroon?
  • #262
    Macaroon's latest update added some sort of minmap function that doesn't seem to work with Chinchilla, so if you disable the macaroon minimap in your addons then Chinchlla should work fine again

    I have an issue with Chinchilla Minimap and Minimap Button Frame. My button frame has all the icon buttons, but they are all jumbled around. Not in a neat orderly row. When I turn off Chinchilla, Minimap Button Frame works like it should. All the buttons are in a nice row. I've tried changing Chinchilla settings but nothing seems to fix the problem. Anyone have a solution?

    Here's a quote off the comments section of MBF by the author off that addon:

    "Check your minimap addon. I know that for some reason Chinchilla has a setting to adjust the blip sizes but it seems to affect the minimap buttons as well. If you set this back to 100% then the buttons display correctly."

    This was the fix for me. If you have increased the blip size in Chinchilla it will mess up MBF positions and sizes.

    Is it possible to add Alpha to the Expander minimap? Also, some times the Expander bugs, and the expanded minimap goes way out of center, up to top right corner, squished to an oval, and not aligned with the overlay. Maybe a reset of the shape and position each time the expanded map is toggled will work? If you do not know of this graphic bug, I can provide a screenshot...

    I would like to move achievement tracking
  • #263
    objectives & untick disable mouseover you can then mouseover the tracker, move it & then it'll no longer be anchored to the minimap frame.
  • #251
    I kinda dissapointed, I would like to be able to make the buttons, when detached, to go below where it's set, so it could sit along the bottom, also, to be able to do a fade with buttons. It also needs the ability to move addon buttons anywhere, yet I see no option for it.
  • #248
    Most of SimpleMinimap is broken now, and Chinchilla is a GREAT replacement except for one thing: with SMM, I could freely move frames such as the Achievement Tracking Frame, with Chinchilla, it stays firmly attached under the minimap, and with the map at the bottom of my screen, I can't track any achievements. Is there a setting I'm missing, or is this something that can be added?
