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'm looking for something that can move the Gunship boss frames.

    I'm hoping Chinchilla will be updated so that it and other boss frames can be moved. They appear right below the minimap.

    If anyone knows of another mod that can move them please let me know.

    Hey, first off - love this mod, it's been my Minimap of choice for a long time now! Very recently though, since v2.1 I think, I've been having a serious problem with it. Chinchilla simply will not save my settings. I configure the minimap how I like, moving buttons and the quest tracker, changing it's shape, and everything else.. Then I log out, and log back in, and my minimap is reset to the upper right corner with all the default starting settings.

    It doesn't matter if I make a new profile, or try to copy from one I already have; everything is back to it's defaults: shape, buttons, positions, everything! It's quite a frustrating thing to re-configure the minimap every time I log onto a character.

    Anyway, I was hoping (praying!) that there was some kind of fix for this out there, or if this has been a common issue since v2.1?

    Thanks again for this awesome addon!

    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.
