Awesome addon -been using it for years. Never used Carbonite mini-map, though.

Is it possible to select targets by clicking on the map (or mini-map)? Currently one has to hover the mini-map, match the name in BG-Spy, then click BG-Spy to target. Would like to eliminate the middle-man and click directly on the map (or mini-map) to target.

Is it possible to track targets by class like friendlies? Color code the dots? Maybe donuts for enemies and solid dots for friendlies? Or transparency or eve solid green for friendlies? Knowing both are nice, but it's way more important to know enemy class than friendly. BG-Spy knows class, so it must be possible?

Is it possible to leave a small trail for enemy targets? Especially those that leave the mini-map? It would be nice to watch trends, traps and areas of threat? Also, it's easy to lose track, since the map moves with the player. Trails might extend as the player moves?

Is it possible to highlight healers on the map (or mini-map)?

To find out more about how Carbonite works, read through the "CarboniteReadMe" plain text file that can be found in your "Path to your WoW folder\Interface\AddOns\Carbonite\" folder.

There is quite a bit of installation information at the top of the file, but since it's already installed you can skip over that to the good parts.

About the Carbonite "minimap": Carbonite has one map and it is either maximized (large, like Blizzards World Map) or minimized (minimap sized but NOT the minimap). Blizzard gives us three maps: The Minimap (found in the upper right corner of your screen), the World Map (the big map) and the Zone (sometimes referred to as the Battleground) Map. A technicality, to be sure, but it occasionally helps to use the correct terms when explaining something.
Ahhhh, the vagueries of the aging mind. Wait.... What was I saying?

Carbonite-CLASSIC<----- GitHub link to Carbonite Classic. Thanks to ircdirk for this!
