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 updated on 5/2, i've now lost all control over quest/achievement tracking. I have no tracking frame and i can not track the shortest text quest/achievement.

    For some reason my pet no longer shows as a blip, but rather an "error symbol" when using any of the blip skins. Any ideas ?

    The map moves when you relog, and the coordinates + location bar also move upon relogging.

    I like the button scaling!

    One thing though. It occasionally bugs and blows up the size of other minimap icons. It's not terrible, just something you may want to look into.

    I can't move the "tracking" button around my minimap, but I can move all the other buttons, and hide them, etc. I dug through the options but didn't find anything, am I missing something here? Thanks

    My most fave minimap mod of awesomeness! Introduce WoW v 3.1 Live; ack; oh noes - a bug - with latest version of chinchilla from here -

     Interface\Addons\Chinchilla\Compass.lua:38 attempt to call method 'Getfacing' (a nil value)

    This happens when selecting "rotate minimap" in interface display options.

    I can move it but not hide it.
