Chinchilla Minimap

Example 1

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).

    I haven't removed the option, I moved it to the MoveButtons module. Having it in the Position module caused display issues. Honest!

    I hate to be a bother, but I noticed you removed the ability to move the dungeon difficulty. Would it be possible to get this re-added in addition to being able to hide it?

    Hmm, i still can't get the achievement tracker to show? I can show tracked quests, but achievements doesn't pop up... anyone has to same problem or a solution? And i have v2.1.

    Sure, why not?

    Any chance of including an option to hide the dungeon & raid difficulty display? It would be much appreciated.

    Does anyone know if the new square mask solved the problems ?

    Seems to work for me. Changed the minimap back to square, logged off (quit the game, actually) and back in without a single error.

    I downloaded the newest alpha version. Its perfect. Thank you!

    a little reflection: if i set the tracker movable (orenge indicator) after i go to the tracker size setting menu and setting the size, the orange indicator dosent refressing the new size (but do it the resizing) . but dosent matter, i like so also :)
