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

    SimpleMiniMap is no longer compatable with XPBarNone.

    I have tried the v30000-5 for 3.0.3 version and also the r160 for 3.3.0 version. Both of them remove my XPBarNone.

    I disabled all of my add-ons and turned them on one at a time, and the SimpleMiniMap is the only add-on that causes this problem.

    Could you please try to fix it. I happen to love both of these add-ons.

    Thank-you kindly for your time looking into the issue.

    Error with 3.3: Note that I reset all savedvariables for the addon and it still doesn't work.

    Works fine for me, have you tried checking the Menu -> Show/hide -> Calendar option is ticked?

    The only issue with the alpha. My calendar button dissapeared. It's there with old version or with simpleminimap disabled

    The latest alpha works with 3.3.0, hopefully anyway :P

    Any chance this will be updated for 3.1 patch? It gives me errors upon loading the UI. Thanks.

    Any chance you could add the World State Frame (pvp objectives, etc.) to the movers?

    Calendar icon: This is now the same frame as the old sun/moon frame: 'GameTimeFrame'. Check if you have another addon (eg FuBar_ClockFu) that changes this frame too.
    Calendar icon size: hmm the icon is huge by default. maybe I add an option to resize it...don't know
    GUI: With '/smm gui enabled' you can enable/disable the mouseclick gui.
    Tracking button: sorry can't reproduce. works fine for me
    Mousewheel zoom & Minimap Button Frame: works fine without mbf...don't know what mbf is doing, must look at mbf code first
    'movers module': look at picture 3 that shows an example. This frames are attached to the MinimalCluster by WoW default!!! If you want to move the minimap to the bottom do first: enable 'movers' and move frames around. Than move your minmap to the bottom.
    funny thing: (quote:'SMM does a funny thing: if activated my character frames (character, talents, profession etc.) are overlapping.')
    sorry can't reproduce. works fine for me
    location text and frame hide/show if login/out: sorry can't reproduce. works fine for me
    Clock: this is currently not movable and there is no option in smm to hide/show it. you can hide/show this in the InterfaceOptions menu. I try to add an option to do this with smm too...if I have some time.
    button move if minimap is in a corner: I can move the buttons around without problems. with any skin and in any corner... You must enable skin, so the radian can be calculated.

    If you have problems with simpleMinimap please do the following:
    - disable ALL addons expect simpleMinimap (and eg BugGrabber) and try to reproduce your issue
    - if there is a problem: delete SaveVars (this is normally not needed, but in rare cases it can help) from simpleMinimap (make a backup) and try again
    - still a problem: post

    Most issues posted here has something to do with other addons that use similar/same functions as simpleMinimap (CaptureBar/QuestLog move, Calendar icon hide/show or whatever). In such a case you should disable this feature in one addon.
