About Chinchilla Minimap

Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Appearance
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.
Compass
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Coordinates
Show your location coordinates.
Expander
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
Location
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).
Ping
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap.
Position
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
Zoom
Use the mouse-wheel to zoom the minimap and zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).

    Actually, you're right. I've found the problem. It's a quirk in Blizzard's code.

    The durability man is hidden when in a vehicle or an arena. Chinchilla touches vehicle indicator code during startup and this seems to confuse the game and hide the durability man.

    I'll see if I can find a fix. For now, either disable the Show/Hide module or turn off vehicle seat display.

    Sorry about that. I've always bombed around Azeroth on my motorbike so I wasn't aware of what was going on.

    No it doesn't. There's nothing in the code that causes the frame to be hidden.

    My obsessive compulsive disorder demands I investigate this, but I am almost certain that it isn't Chinchilla's fault.

  • #1154

    It's possible. :|a

    Time to make my character commit suicide... FOR SCIENCE.

  • #1153

    Perhaps the hiding the durability man is a side effect of hiding one of the other elements that Chinchilla does handle.

  • #1152

    Before making my post, I turned off all addons except Chinchilla and reloaded.  I tried this several times. With Chinchilla as the only addon, the durability man was hidden.  With no addons enabled, the durability man showed.

    Is there a way to remove the Flag Carriers that appear under the map with this addon?

  • #1150

    Not yet.

  • #1137

    Is there an option to remove the silly Chinchilla in the lower left corner of the minimap?

    Use a different border type than Chinchilla.   Took me a while to remember that tonite while trying to get rid of it myself!

    Love the addon, no likey the blob. =P

  • #1145

    Thanks :)

  • #1143

    I'll work on a "Sans Rodent" skin that gets rid of the chinchilla.

    Critter haters. =P

  • #1136

    Since the current update, the Blizzard location bar is appearing underneath the Chinchilla location bar. I can't seem to fix this.

    I can't replicate this even with clean SavedVariables but I'll keep an eye out just in case.

  • #1144

    I figured it out. It was simpleMiniMap. For some reason, after I updated Chinchilla, it started showing the the Blizz location bar under the Chinchilla one. When I disabled simpleMinimap, it corrected the problem. Didn't need SMM anymore, so it's gone.  Sorry for any trouble.

    Oh, and any chance we might get a Horde skin for the minimap? I have always used the Alliance one since I haven't much liked the others, but a red Horde one would be nice to have. :)

     

    Thank you for this addon. :)

    I am currently unable to move arena frames. So if I move the minimap to the lower part of the screen, I can't see them at all. :/
