Auramastery  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.8d
by: Letho [More]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ATTENTION

Version 0.8d (26. Nov. 2017)
The latest release brings a major overhaul of functionality and menu design. Please be aware, that some auras, that have been created with an earlier version, may break and need to be recreated.

In case you get .lua-errors please do a "factory reset" for aura mastery by deleting the AuraMastery.lua file from your ESO's SavedVariables folder.

FIRST TIME USERS:
Please fully read this description page as Auramastery's flexibility and power comes at the expense of easy usability!

Ability-ID-finder:
With the latest release I decided not to support the ability ID (read further below if you don't know what I am talking about) finder anymore, as this method of finding ability IDs for specific spells, effects or abilities only worked for buffs and debuffs that are generated by a specific ability. And even they had some exceptions (for example the debuff applied to a target by using "poison arrow" on it, uses a different name and ability ID than the ability "poison arrow" itself). There are many unique effects like set procs (e.g. the monster mask "Ilambris"), that could not be adressed by the finder.
The only solution would be semi-manually hardcoding a database - we are talking about ~100.000 spell ids that have to be checked manually. That is simply too much work to do.
So how do I find ability Ids for the buffs/debuffs I want to track?
The method I would suggest is getting and familiarizing yourself with the addon CombatMetrics by decay2, as it logs nearly everything (buffs/debuffs/attacks/etc.) that happens during combat, attaching the ability ID next to the event's name (this functionality has to be activated in the addon's settings menu). You can easily look up ability IDs this way.
Another way is using the buff/debufftracker Srendarr and enabling the display of effect Ids under the addon's debug settings. Each buff/debuff will display it's ability ID this way.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------



What is AuraMastery?

The addon's main purpose is providing players a tool to display important and user defined information in a structured and highliy customizable and thereby easy to see way on players' screens (look at the screenshot displaying the state of two important buffs).
This is achieved by using a two step configuration:

1. Display options
This contains all customizable information about what to display: An icon, a statusbar or plain text. Customize the icon's size, position, transparency, border size,etc. You can display every single icon ingame.

2. Condition/trigger settings
This step contains all information about when to display those things specified during the first step based on simple user defined conditions working as display triggers. Currently
Auramastery only supports aura information as conditions (e.g. "display the specified icon once buff/debuff xyz's duration is > 0" => the icon will be displayed as soon as the specified
aura is active on the specified unit, e.g. "player"). It's also possible to combine several conditions related to different buffs/debuffs.

To get an idea of it's current features take a look at the acreenshots attached to this overview.

The addon strictly works on a whitelist base: It will only display things that the user specified to serve it's main purpose! Although it can be used as a buff/debuff tracker I still recommend using an ordinary buff/debuff addon such as Srendarr to get a display of every single effect currently active on your character.


Please be aware that Auramastery is currently in alpha state. Many features aren't implemented, yet and there probably will be some errors caused by it! Expect many small bug fixes.

List of configuration fields:

1. Display settings:
Name: A personal identifier for a specific aura
Width/height [pixels]: Here you can specify the icon's size in pixels.
PosX/PosY [screen coordinates in pixels]: The icon's position on your screen (the icon's top left corner will be used as an anchor with 0,0 pointing at the top left position of your screen)
Transparency [0-1]: 0 = invisible, 1 = zero transparency, 0.5 = semi transparent
Font size/Font color: Font size and font color for all text to be displayed on the aura.
Border size/Border color [pixels]: Same as font size/font color.
Critical Time [seconds]: As soon as the duration of the abilities specified in the condition tab exceed this threshold, bring the icon to 100% visibility, display the cooldown with higher precision (using tenths of seconds) and color the cooldown text red.
Enabled: You can unload the aura without having to delete it by setting this to true.
Duration Source: Now this is a bit hard to explain. Imagine you have an aura of type "Icon", that you configured to be displayed as soon as a specific buff on your character with a full duration of 30 seconds has less than 20 seconds AND more than 10 seconds left (no idea why ppl should do that, but its a good example). As soon as the aura gets displayed, it will start a cooldown animation. This setting handles what the cooldown will look like:
* Aura: As soon as the aura gets displayed, a cooldown will start at 0 and run for 10 seconds (remaining aura display time).

* Trigger n: The cooldown animation won't last for the remaining display time, but as soon as the aura gets displayed, it will check for the duration of the ability specified within trigger 1, ignoring all other triggers. In our example this ability has a duration of 30 seconds. The aura will display as soon as the ability has 20s left. The cooldown spiral will not start at 0, but it will already have travelled 1/3 (20 of 30 seconds) and travel for another 1/3 of the icon (10s) before the icon fades.
I sugget you play around with this setting a bit to get an understanding of how it works.
Icon Source:
* Trigger n: Automatically take the ability icon of the ability that has been specified in Trigger n.
* Manual: Select the icon manually.
2. Display conditions:
The display conditions work as follows: Each condition, represented by a so called "trigger" is check individually to be true or false. If all conditions provided are met, the Icon specified is displayed - as soon as one or more conditions are not met anymore, the icon is hidden. The following fields are available for specifying the condition's logic:

Trigger Type: This specifies what the current trigger is checking.
* (De-)Buff checks a buff or debuff on the target specified below.

* Ability used is for checking ground effects: Let's take the Inferno Staff's elemental blockade ability as an example - the ground effect has a duration, but it is not treated as a buff or debuff on you or a target. So the game has to check if you just used an ability matching the ability ID specified below. If that ability has a duration, display the aura for that time.

*Combat Event is for checking for buffs and debuffs using the combatlog. There are some effects ingame that can be put on you without being recognized to be a buff/debuff by the game client. An example would be the 2nd boss on Maw of Lorkaj: As u might know, the boss puts an effect on you, that makes you either being on the "light" or on the "shadow" side. Those effects are not displayed as a debuff (and hence not detected by srendarr and other buff/debuff trackers). But you can workaround that by checking the combat events and simulate a buff/debuff. This Setting is for professional users only, as you will have to pick the effect IDs from the combatlog.
Ability ID: A numeric value that identifies a specific buff, debuff, effect or ability (which one is looked up is contextual to the selected trigger type).
Source Unit:
* player: Check for the ability specified above on your character.
* target: Check for the ability specified above on your current target.
Check all Ability Ids: All abilities consist of one base ability and two potential morphs (using different names) with 4 ranks each. That results in 12 ability IDs for one ability. Let's say you want to track a debuff on you. Due to the fact that you never know an attacker's ability rank you would normally have to create one condition for every ability ID. This can be avoided by simply entering one of the four ability IDs for the desired aura and switching this control to "true". WARNING: Due to Zenimax not having properly localized all ability names, this might sometimes not work.
Operator, Value:
This is best explained by giving an example:

Ability-ID = 63302 (proximity detonation rank IV)
Operator = ">"
Value = "0"
This translates into
"Display the specified icon as soon as proximity detonation's buff on the player is active (duration > 0)"
As soon as the buff fades (= detonation goes off), the icon will be hidden again. You can add as many
conditions as you like, but watch out that they make sense! Contradicting conditions will cause the icon never to be displayed!
Invert Logic: Inverts the trigger logic (when conditions specified above are true, they will be treated like they were false, if this button is set to "true")
Selfcast only: If this is set to "true", only effects that have been cast by you will be taken into consideration.


Usage (Slash commands):
Type "/am menu" to display the configuration menu. Here you can add, edit or delete your current auras.
Type "/am unlock" to make every aura movable and "/am lock" to lock them back to their current position.


Things to come in the future:
- further customizing features for statusbars and text auras
- adding status based conditions (%life, %stamina/magicka, combat state, stealth state, etc.)
- many more configuration options for combat-event-triggers.

Thank you for testing, please report any bugs you encounter using the comment system.

Timer for instant events

Is there any way to show a cooldown or a custom timer for events? I can't figure out how to make the addon show anything for effects that have no duration. Am I doing something wrong, or is it currently impossible to track events without a duration?

Specifically, I want to see the cooldown for the Bloodthorn's Touch set (IDs 34522 and 57177), but there are plenty of set bonuses and other events worth tracking that do not have a duration.

Bug: If I delete a aura, I no longer can use /am lock/unlock without getting an error.
Seems like you found a bug! Thx for reporting!

@1: Texture was not supposed to be in there :S Forgot to comment it out in the source code!
@2: Uhm actually I couldn't imagine a reason why people should want that :O A cooldown spiral can be tracked much easier out of the corner of one's eye. It could be implemented really fast though.
@3: I tried it many times. Handling textures and control elements in ESO is quite complicated and I have to 'abuse' many functions just to get the result that I want. Now that I have time i will ask some other ppl for help and see if it can be included. The greates difficulty: If I implement the standard border, I must do it in a way, that other addons, that 'style' the standard UI will also change the border for aura mastery. I have to use original UI templates to achieve this, it's tricky.
1.) So this will get removed?
2.) I don't know but for me it's more disturbing than helpful, could you add a option for this? x)
3.) Yea, i also thought someone could help you with that maybe. It would be really nice!

I also figured something weird out but I can't remember how this happened: I changed the position of an aura and while doing this the icon changed his size (looked warped) and stayed that look even when I deleted the aura and created it again. It stayed until I deleted the .lua file.

Thank you! A Progressionbar aura type has been added in the current release, although only at an experimental status.

Yeeeees that is the load-feature, that I will be working on after the next 2 implementations^^ Each aura can be specified to load only under specific conditions. Here is what I am currently working on, whenever I find the time:

- cooldown spiral for icons [done]
- new aura type: progression bar [partially implemented, menu todo] (coding this addon is 20% work for implementing new functions, 80% work for addin user menu functionality, very frustrating -.-)
- new aura type: texture
- new aura type: text

Hey guys, I am currently drowning in RL work and have no time for playing/coding.

@Bierdeife: Adding a border style is not implemented, yet, sorry. I have no idea when the next release will be.

@moken7: As long as the game communicates it, it is doable. Sadly I cannot login currently to find out the appropriate spell id, sorry.

Can you add a border style like the default UI? Or can I change it myself (How?)?

@Bierdeife: Those two abilities are the fade events from a dragon knight's armor and jump and ther shouldn't be a missing event. Can you describe your auras, that use those abilities?
I don't use this abilities, thats the weird thing!
I will deactivate the debug information in the next version, it's just a nesting issue: Actually it should only track player actions, but I put it in the wrong nesting level and now it fires for every combat event :S
Thank you, when do you release the next Version?
