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).

    Hm...I can't think of any mods I have running that affect the in-game clock.

    I'm not having any problems with the clock here. It may be a conflict with another addon.

    Is there a bug with the clock in 4.0.3? I can't seem to hide the Clock any more. I'll uncheck it, it disappears, but when I relog it's back again and rechecked.

    Ethan, can you do another build before you leave for holiday? Maybe squeeze in the mouseover fadeout functionality?

    Would it be easy to add a mouseover event to the minimap cluster? So that if I mouse over the cluster it would change opacity to 100%, and fade to a set opacity when I move the mouse away?

    My blip size was not changed.

    This is not the blips; this is the wait time text for the LFD indicator the stuff you get when you mouseover the icon, or click on the icon.

    Tinolyn, keep in mind that the "Blip Size" setting, if set too high, will push the arrows off the edge of your minimap, therefore hiding them. You can only set the blip size to about 130% before they're completely worthless.

    I thought in a past build you had a feature that allowed us to display the LFG info (on wait times) in a different place, if you had a map that was positioned on the left side of the screen. Am I blind or just not seeing it? I'm using v. 2.2.2.
