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).

    Work on this has begun but I can't tell if it's fully functional yet as the orange overlay doesn't show.
    Check the latest alphas, fiddle with the settings and let me know what happens.

    I've fixed this in the recent alphas.

    Any chance you might include a way to move the Atramedes sound circle, since you have movable boss frames?

    I think the opacity in expander is interfereing with the lines that the addon routes draws on the minimap, at 100% opactity it seems to cover the lines.

    Thanks GRiMoku, I've got it installed and am giving it a try. I needed something to be better able to see focus debuffs and what do you know, this looks like it will do the trick there too. So thanks for the great suggestion. Was glad to see it was an Ace addon also. :-)

    @Skycarya You can move your minimap. Also, there are other buff addons to move your buff/debuffs. Satrina Buff frames, and Elkano Buffbars are two off the top of my head. I prefer Elkano due to the timer bars. :)

    Hi. Thanks for the great addon & functionality.

    One of the things I like most is the ability to make a -larger- minimap; my eyes can't take staring at tiny objects all day long...

    This however causes the onscreen buffs to be blocked from view because now my minimap is in conflict positioning-wise with a few of them.

    Can you please add player-buffs / debuffs to the list of frames that can be repositioned? This would keep me from having to use another addon to accomplish this. I like being able to mouseover the (de)buff and maintain the original blizz data/timing etc.

    Thanks much for reading.

    Done. It is available in alpha build v2.3.1-6 and newer.

    I won't add movers for the achievement notification but I will consider the Cho'gall/Atramedes sound bar.
    First, I need to convince my guild that I am raid-ready. :p

    Can you ad feature to let us chose the level of opacity for expander? Thank you.

    Is it possible to get a "mover" for the achievement/guild achievement frame? Also possibly one for the Cho'gall / Atramedes's sound bar? A quest in Twilight Highlands also uses this bar for dream/insanity I think.
