Chinchilla Minimap

Example 1

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).

    Boss frame support (movement/visibility) has been added back in as of Version 2.6-3 and onwards. The code still isn't optimal but your much-loved features are back.

    Enjoy!

    @thelandira: Go

    Navigate to Interface/AddOns/Chinchilla/Chinchilla.lua and replace WatchFrame:SetHeight(700) on line 177 with WatchFrame:SetHeight(500), save the file and then reload your UI. That should do the trick. :)

    The width is handled by Blizzard's code; Chinchilla simply provides a shortcut to the Wider Objectives Window setting.

    @Barfolomeu: Go

    I've disabled it for now pending a code re-write. In its current state it is more trouble than it is worth. Don't worry, I want to bring it back and it will be much better than before! :)

    What happened to the boss frame mover? I noticed that all the boss frames moved back to their default location. Are they no longer tied to the minimap? Inquiring minds want to know.

    @ethan - where would I look in the coding then to adjust it to like 500 or so? I play on my laptop quite often and at 700 in length it's a bit long for my liking...I can deal with the width as it is.

    @thelandira: Go

    I plan to add the title/button hiding options to the Appearance module at some point but I haven't yet decided what to do with quest tracker resizing.

    Too many people got confused with how it worked (I'm not kidding) so I removed it and forced the quest tracker to be 700pixels tall instead. It will do for now but I'll keep an eye out and see what the community wants. :)

    Any chance you'll add back the Quest Tracker module? I miss not being able to resize the quest tracker as well as hide the title and open/close thingie.

    Glad I caught the comments. I was wondering about hiding the bosses also.

    @mothandras: Go

    I've turned it off for the time being.

    I drastically changed way frames are hidden in v2.5.14-15 but it didn't work with boss frames in their current state.

    If you really want the functionality back then you'll need to revert to v2.5.14-14 or any previous package. I'll bring it back eventually. :)

    What happened to the boss frame control?

    With v2.5.14-19-g4d04c5e you can no longer control the boss frames and they are enabled by default.

    I like this turned off or hidden.
