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

    Ok here is a shot of the achievement thing. I was going to try to get a shot of it as the panel fades out but my system kind of tripped on itself trying to save just the one shot so it's all I got. Basically when the frame starts to fade out you can start seeing the text in the white area. Prior to 3.3 it worked fine.

    Got another one done and got a shot of the fade out

    r160 works fine for me and I dont have problems with Gunship Battle. My only concern is new LFG system Icon -> my minimap is in up left corner and I can't see mouseover tooltip (tooltip is on left side). Is there any way to move this new icon around?

    I'll try to get one tonight, will have to go find some cheap achievement to do :) Oh, I could probably create a L1 toon and get the first pet achievement out of the mailbox or something. However, if you're not seeing this problem then maybe I have some other mod interfering. The only thing I could think of would be Skinner but I don't think I even have a skin loaded for sMm in the skinme folder.

    The gunship battle frame is docked underneath the minimap. I'll release an update soon (after Monday as I'm going away) that lets you move it. In the meantime if you find a unit frame mod that has a custom unit frame for the new Boss Frames in 3.3 that should work as well, or you could move the minimap up so you can see the gunship frame.

    Can you post a screenshot of the achievement issue flyinion?

    Overall r160 seems to be working for 3.3 for me. The only thing I've noticed so far is that the achievement frame has a solid white box over where the text should be when an achievement pops up. The icon for it displays fine, it's just the black background area where the text shows and the "glow" effect happens. As soon as the frame starts to fade away you can see the text but it has a gray wash over it as it fades out.

    "any chance to make the dungeon finder icon moveable ?" That would be awesome.

    Another question: How can I display the gunship health in the ICC gunship battle?

    Maritter, can you possibly take a screenshot of the issue?

    Quxtal are you sure you're using r160, from what I can tell (the error line number) that looks more like v30000-5.

    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.
