Chinchilla Minimap

157 - Optional second / third range circle

   I currently have two  profiles defined: gathering, with a 100 yd radius, and combat, with a 40 yd radius.
Having to constantly switch profiles is a bother (mouse to minimap, right-click, select new profile).
 
I would prefer to have both displayed at once.
   (The option to bind different profiles to hotkeys in same way that some other
    addons such as wardrobe do would be a nice tweak as well, btw.)

Further, some combat spells only have a range of 30 yds, while most have a range of 40.
The guild xp/reb boost banner (selectable as focus target) has a range of 100 yds,
and actually depawns if you move beyond that distance.
Being able to monitor all these potentially critical ranges at once
would be a huge boost in the usefulness of the range circle module.

   Would it be possible to plant a temporary minimap marker much as Archy does?
 I'm mainly thinking of the warlock 40yd self-teleport spell.
 The teleport 'glyph' on the ground is not selectable, therefore it is very easy to move out of range,
 or even lose track of where it is in the heat of combat.

Thanks for such a hugely useful addon.

    Multiple circles has been requested a lot so I think it's time I started working on it. I'll see what I can mash together over the weekend.

    In the meantime, I can offer you a macro for easy profile changing:

    /run Chinchilla.db:SetProfile("<profile name>")
    

    Where <profile name> is "Gathering" or "Default" or whatever name you gave to the profile, e.g.:

    /run Chinchilla.db:SetProfile("Gathering")
