Guild Hall Button  New this week!
Version: 1.00.140

Guild Hall Button
by Boar Gules

Many players of Elder Scrolls Online® have hankered after guild halls of the sort provided by Guild Wars.

When Zenimax announced Homestead, the ESO housing framework, many guilds immediately co-opted it as a way to set up guild halls. Typically, though not always, the guild hall is the guild leader’s primary residence. Often, such houses are not furnished as residences at all: they have full catering facilities, crafting stations, and other things you would not expect to find in a private home, however wealthy the owner might be.

You can quite easily travel to such a guild hall: simply pick your guild leader’s name out of the guild roster and select Visit Primary Residence from the context menu.

The Guild Hall Button add-on does little more than that. It is a simple way to reduce the number of mouse-clicks required, and also expresses the intention of the guilds that such houses are not residences at all, but guild halls.

To Install

Most people use Minion to install add-ons, but if you want to do a manual install, that is very straightforward. Open the zipfile and you will see a folder called GuildHallButton. Extract this folder to your ESO add-ons folder.

• On a PC that will typically be C:\Users\username\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns. If you have installed ESO on another drive, or have chosen another location for your Documents folder, you will presumably know what to substitute for C:.

• On a Mac that will typically be ~/Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns.

Once you have done this you should have a new folder in AddOns called GuildHallButton. There should be three files inside it: GuildHallButton.lua, GuildHallButton.txt and GuildHallButton.xml. There will also be documentation files as .txt and .pdf.

Operation

Following a successful install, if you press G for Guild, you should see Guild Hall shown on the bottom left of your Guild home screen. Press the button Travel to Guild Hall and you will be moved to the “primary residence” of that guild’s leader.

Configuration

This initial version has no configuration options. That has been postponed to a future release. Some guilds have castellan-officers, and it is their primary residence that is the guild hall, not the guild leader’s. In such cases, pressing the button will either take you to the wrong place, or simply yield the warning The house you attempted to visit is unavailable. This is a known limitation, not a bug. A future version of the program will provide configuration facilities to deal with such cases.

Extras

For people who dislike taking their fingers from the keyboard, the add-on also provides a command that you can type in chat. The command /guildhall (also spelt /gh) will take you to the guild hall, and you can optionally type a number between 1 and 5 (for example /guildhall 2) to specify which guild. The numbers of course have the same meaning as the chat window commands /guild1 etc.

The ideal solution would be for this add-on to support the "<GH" syntax used by the other two add-ons to detect who has the guild hall from the player notes. This would also be easier to implement than writing a new customization method.

Enabling the player (user) to configure the add-on with the actual identifier to which the player's character can "travel" in order to arrive at the Guild Hall is absolutely necessary.
Well, two addons supporting this feature exist for almost a year:
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1...dHallList.html
http://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1...GuildHall.html

So if you don't need a fancy icon, you could as well just keep using those.
