JoGroup  Updated this week!
Version: 1.22
by: JoKim [More]
For a long time now I've been puzzled as to why there aren't more addons like this available...
Sure there's the big ones like FTC, but they are a whole "package" of several addons in one so to speak. But what if for each of those modules you already have another addon you prefer? Still use the big one only for groupframes?
Another point was that none of the groupframes addons I could find displayed @UserIDs, only Characternames. Which is what started me looking at lua code and eventually deciding to just make an addon myself.

I hope you will find this addon useful. I still have a lot planned for this addon, so work will continue with adding new features (and squashing bugs )


Features
  • Indicators for "Being ressed", "Res pending", "Reincarnating"
  • Indicators for Shield, Stealth, Foodbuff, War Horn
  • Choose different colours for roles
  • Correct display of roles assigned by dungeon finder
  • Option to sort the units by role
  • Tooltips
  • Right-click menus
  • Regen arrows
  • Displays names according to system settings
  • Choose how many units per column you wish displayed and growth direction
  • Chat notifications
  • Optional: LibGroupSocket support, if you have either LGS or GroupResources installed you can see the magicka and stamina values of other groupmembers with LGS installed

Slash Commands
  • /jogroup unlock unlocks the frames to reposition them
  • /jogroup lock locks them again
  • /rl reloads the ui
  • /rc perform a ready check
  • /gl leave your group
  • /gd disband your group

To do
  • More customisation options
  • Marking groupmembers
  • Compact Mode needs works
  • Add visual shield state indication




Thanks to @Scootworks, @Baertram, @Sirinsidiator
1.23
- Added Compact Mode! Please note that it's still a work in progress though
- Brought back previewing units when unlocked and not in a group, it does not reflect everything, but hopefully it's sufficient

1.21
- Added sort by role

1.2
- Added French localisation

- Added showing how long a groupmember has been offline to the tooltip, please note that reloading the ui resets this
- Made a start adding the ability to mark groupmembers you choose, but this is still a WIP

1.13
- Changed the way regen arrows are made
- Added options to hide regen arrows and/or foodbuffs

1
- Added Slash Commands section to the description. They've actually been in the addon since the beginning, for debugging purposes, but I figured I'd make a note of it since they might come in handy to users too.

It used to do that, but I broke it when adding custom sorting, sorry about that XD, I'm working on getting it back tho ^^
Hah, thanks for the heads up!

I agree with retired_adventurer. I really like the ability to show @names ++....
But as it seems to not be the same for all, what about the possibiity to choose in option ? to show or not and which *name* -account or character-.

I really like the ability to show @names in addition to character names. This can take up a lot of space though. Thus it's probably best to allocate an entire row to just the name, or in other words leave this row as it is now.

The row with the CP level, food, stealth, etc icons seems to have a lot of extra space in the middle that goes to waste. My suggestion is to perhaps move the status icons (food, stealth) down into the HP bar somehow, maybe on the right end. The level and class info is not critical in my opinion and can be left out because it's not something that needs to be updated in real time, and can always be seen in the existing group menu.

For what it's worth, I use the 12 rows by 2 column layout, so I prefer each unit to be wide and not very tall, as this lets me see long player and character names better.

Great add-on, so much better than the games' default group frames.

Here's my 2 cents on the layout.

I really like the ability to show @names in addition to character names. EDIT: There is a good reason to keep both. I do not think it is a good idea to drop character name to save space. Many people use character name in group chat since that's the only one you can see with the built-in UI, and without character names you have no idea who they are talking about. This can take up a lot of space though. Thus it's probably best to allocate an entire row to just the name, or in other words leave this row as it is now.

I really like this addon, because I main a healer and as a support character it's really useful to see, who has food up, is there a warhorn up and stuff like that. I really like @CTgreen suggestions. It could be more compact, with the name on the health bar, but still retain the health amount (not shortened, underneath the name, doesnt need to be big) and the percentage, but it would make showing the warhorn a bit harder... Or split up the raid frame and group frame to two different things maybe, because using the same window for raid and group is really hard, because I have to move it around a bit every time I go to a trial.

Anyways, good luck with this and I'll most certainly keep enjoying this addon (even more once I get my guild mates to use the GroupResources addon so I can be more effective in dungeons).

Not at all! It's actually really helpful ^^

I agree and I already looked into that, but I haven't found anything to tell me a player is mounted I'm afraid.

Compact Mode ideas

Hello again, JoKim...

Thanks for the reply! I'm excited to hear that improvements are in the cards for this add-on.

I hope this isn't too presumptuous, or whatever, but i went ahead and made a mockup of what I thought would be a good group frame layout. Feel free to use (or ignore) as much of it as you like.



Sorry for alignment issues (Keynote isn't always nice to me) and please excuse the emojis... I didn't have the proper icons for everything. :P The only one that's intentionally odd is the Crown being adjusted left of the UserID and Health bars, to make it quicker/easier to see who's leader at a glance.

Is it possible to show when group mates are riding their mount, similar to how you show when they're sneaking? That'd be neat, especially in Cyrodiil.

EDIT :: Sorry for ginormous image! lol

EDIT2 :: I don't think there's room for UserID and Character Name, so I would prefer a toggle if that's doable. Cramming both in one line makes it too small to see either, plus there isn't room for all that plus character level and class icons. Just my two cents.

Hrmm I see I made a mistake, sorry about that! XD
Will have it fixed in the morning.

Hi,
Thanx so much.

I'd like to have a hotkey to change the sorting when i am in Hel-rah or MoL
With regard to the distance between me as
healer and the others.

Because we split into two groups of six.

Thank you! I am currently working on a more compact mode (optional) and will also continue to add more customisation options.
Hmm, I removed the 'grey' colour for now, will look at adding more colours later.

Even with those limitations your addon is really great.
Thanks too! I haven't been able to get on PTS yet, but from what I've read it doesn't look good :/ But of course I'll just keep working on it, just without food buff info I guess

Correction, according to http://www.esoui.com/forums/showpost...5&postcount=10 it could still look good. I guess we'll have to wait and see
