OdeHack - Ultimate sharing
Version: 1.3.0
by: Noobanidus [More]
This is an addon commissioned by the members of Ode to Harambe, a raiding guild on PC-NA. While it was meant to be a private addon, it has spread throughout the community and is present in several videos, inclining people to ask for a copy of it. I am releasing this in order to be able to maintain a "definitve" version, although this version is not without bugs and issues.

This addon simply does the following:
- For healers and tanks, shares the value of their current ultimate with other members of the group through map pings

Potential issues include:
- Map changes not being registered by the game API resulting in information not being shared.
- Values not properly updating until a user has entered combat.
- Message rate limits causing users to be kicked offline (this is resolved by quite a long delay between pings).
- State of the ultimate pane is not saved between sessions. Use the keybind or /odehack to display it again.

The title itself is a reference to a joke someone made in the guild, that the addon itself would be so useful that someone jokingly called it a "hack". It's not a hack.

But again, great work and may it be the first step to something great for the raiding community!
Honestly, the UI was the simplest part. Determining how often to ping (or not to ping) so as to not flood users off the server was probably the most frustrating. And as mentioned below, it's my intent to update it to use that library at some point in the near future.

You should think about using this library instead to get the group pings sent:
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1...oupSocket.html

The library can be used within an addon or as standalone addon/library.
It was build to send group dmg, heals, and other data and should be working perfectly for your type of data too.
It's managing the delays and everything for you and ppl are able to disable it if they don't want data to be sent.

Contact the author for a unique message type, e.g. MESSAGE_TYPE_ULTIMATE, that you can use in your addon.

Here are example addons that use the library:
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1...Resources.html
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1549-JoGroup.html
-> Addon is using the library but the library can be used as a standalone library/addon as well! So it's not included here
Yes, I recently heard about this library. As mine works properly currently and I've been busy with PTS, I haven't had a chance to sit down and look at things to see how it could best be adopted, but it's definitely something I want to do in the future.
