simpleMinimap pic1

simpleMinimap is a module-centric addon for modifying and personalizing one of the center-pieces of any UI - the minimap. the core simpleMinimap mod has these features...

* left-click and drag the minimap anywhere
* hide and move the default minimap buttons
* zoom in and out with the mousewheel
* adjust the minimap's scale, outdoor alpha and strata
* bind a key to toggle the minimap and/or zoom it full-screen
* type '/smm' for a list of commands 

simpleMinimap also comes with several modules. these modules can be disabled and/or the files can be deleted if you don't need or want access to the features. they are located in the simpleMinimap/modules folder...

* Autozoom - automatically zoom-out minimap after delay
* Compass - NSEW markings on the minimap
* Coords - small frame that shows map coordinates
* GUI - dropdown setup menus (default is right-click on minimap)
* Movers - allows movement of UI frames attached to the minimap
* Pings - popup frame that shows the minimap pinger's name
* Skins - allows for changing the minimap's skin (square, corner) 

thanks to...

* joev - for the original CleanMinimap
* Davik - for the square minimap skin
* grimman - for the dLx corner skin
* Contusion - for rotating the dLx corner skin

    "I can't get Simpleminimap to work at all. I can get it to move, but I can't get the skin to change or anything else in that matter."

    I am in the same boat, I've tired logging off after changing from round to square but the skin won't change. If I check to see what the skin type is it shows what I told it to be but the mini-map is unchanged, one addons' button moves in a square but only that one does. (I even tried /reload ui.)

    The addons I'm using that effect the UI:

    Works fine, but I'm still missing the anchor for the new boss unit frames (gunship battle).

    Are you running any conflicting addons?

    Still have problems with the addon. Sometimes the minimap disappears suddenly (only icons like questicons are still visible) when zoneing or logging in or changing settings of the minimap

    Working on the next update:

    Currently I've got a toggle for the dungeon difficulty flag that appears over the minimap and fixed the ability to toggle on/off the LFG icon. Working on the movability of the LFG icon.

    Yeah, I thought I had downloaded the newest version from ace, but it doesn't always send you to the latest version when you click download. My bad. Works just fine now. Thanks for the best map mod I've found...

    Ok, so yeah I just confirmed, Skinner was actually responsible for the problem. It was updated last last night finally for 3.3. Frames are working correctly on my main where I noticed the problem first now.

    Ok I need to do another test on my main toon, I think I updated Skinner after I took those screenshots (including the 2nd one, definitely after the 1st was done) and I just created a level 1 toon to go pull some BoA pets out of a mailbox to get an easy test achievement, the frame worked fine. Will let you know asap. I kind of figured it was a problem on my end since nobody else was reporting it.
