Foundry Tactical Combat (FTC)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.72
by: Atropos, Philgo68
Foundry Tactical Combat is a user interface enhancement for The Elder Scrolls Online designed to give players access to relevant combat data in an easy to process framework which allows them to respond quickly and effectively to evolving combat situations. The multiple components of the FTC addon are designed to restore certain information to the game interface which many gamers may feel is missing from the default minimalistic UI.

The addon is still in active development by Atropos, and will hopefully continue to evolve and improve during the coming weeks and months. If you are a fan of the addon, keep an eye on the main addon page on Tamriel Foundry to ensure you always have the latest version.

FTC Components

Foundry Tactical Combat has six primary components which are each optionally configurable. All UI elements added by FTC can be disabled or repositioned to suit your preferences. Additionally, Foundry Tactical Combat is fully localized for French and German client versions!

Unit Frames – FTC Unit Frames refers to the display of attribute bars and other information pertaining to yourself, your target, and your group members. The FTC frames are designed to be lightweight and informative. The frames show numerical values for your resources and damage shielding, as well as visual indicators for active HoT and DoT effects, your target’s exceute threshold, and more. The unit frames can have a rich set of aesthetic customization options allowing you to achieve the exact look that fits your UI style.

Active Buff Tracking – The Buff Tracking component of FTC displays a configurable list of icons representing the known buff and debuff effects that are currently affecting your character. The ESO addon API does not provide this information for buffs with durations shorter than 30 seconds, but FTC uses an intelligent combination of detection mechanisms to carefully approximate your inventory of active effects. This knowledge can help you make more informed combat decisions, improve your resource management, and optimize your ability rotation.

Combat Log – Foundry Tactical Combat incorporates a text-based combat log which records a history of combat events so that you can review the details of recent encounters. The combat log by default alternates visibility with the ESO chat tab, but can be detached and positioned wherever you desire on-screen. An optional keybinding can be used to quickly toggle the visibility of the combat log.

Scrolling Combat Text – The FTC Scrolling Combat Text component enables real-time display of damage and healing values as they occur in combat as well as a helpful Combat Alerts component that warns your character immediately when significant combat events occur. FTC’s combat text displays the name and icon (when possible) for known sources of damage as well as useful indicators for damage avoidance through shielding, blocking, or dodging. The display style and format of scrolling combat text events can be customized in the settings menu.

Damage Statistics – The Damage Statistics component adds analytical tools to help you examine and improve your combat performance. While in-combat a small DPS meter tracks the length of your current encounter, your cumulative damage-per-second, and your cumulative healing-per-second throughout the fight. After combat has concluded, you can open a full Damage Report which details the composition of your damage and healing by target. These statitics can be linked to your party members in chat using a configurable keybinding or by clicking on the chat icons in the damage report.

Advanced Hotbar – The Advanced Hotbar component improves the default ESO action bar by adding some additional information that is useful in combat. Your current Ultimate pool and your percentage towards the next Ultimate activation is displayed as well as a visual glow indicator behind the ultimate itself which indicates that you are currently generating additional Ultimate in combat. The Advanced Hotbar component also adds an explicit potion cooldown timer so you can know exactly when you will be able to use your next consumable item.

Installation Instructions
To install Foundry Tactical Combat follow these steps. FTC is also supported by Minion, an automated ESO addon management utility.

1) Download FTC_Current.zip to a location of your choosing.
2) Extract the .zip archive into your ESO addons folder found in My Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/Addons/ for Windows users, or Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/Addons. for OS X.
3) You should now have a folder inside Addons named “FoundryTacticalCombat” which contains the addon files.
4) Launch The Elder Scrolls Online. FTC should be automatically enabled. If not, go to the Add-Ons section of the game menu and make sure that the box beside Foundry Tactical Combat is checked.
5) Access the FTC configuration settings by navigating in-game to Settings -> Add-Ons -> FTC, or by simply typing “/ftc” into chat.

The DB patch on PTS has introduced numerical values on the vanilla resource bars (though shortened by default. 22567 HP becomes 22.5k for example). Thus, this feature of FTC is no longer necessary.

They made a lot of changes to LUA functions too that makes FTC crash the PTS client. I had to see if I could still use it despite ZoS suggesting that players testing in PTS avoid use of addons entirely.

I know I asked this before, but I am still going to give it a try. Can you add back the option to suppress XP earned. IMO it has nothing to do with combat, even if you're attempting to figure out XP/Hour. So many other options to show this value in an unobtrusive way. It blends in with the information I only care about, damage in/out. Its also worth noting, some of the value reported is wrong (the percentage).

I can accept not everyone would have the same opinion, but I am just asking for an option that used to exist.

damage log missing skills

the damage log seems to cut off skills from the log if you have more then 10 abilities doing damage causing an inacurate reading of dps.

Suggestion

It would be nice to see a like friend icon or guild icon showing that they are on your friendlist or in one of your guilds for the default target frame like how Lui exstended and social indicators does it.

Is it possible to only disable the floating combat text but have the Crystal Fragment proc alert?

I am using CombatCloud, but would still like the crystal fragment proc alert up.

One of the texture files was moved in the Thieves Guild update.

In stats/controls.lua, on line 30, "/esoui/art/mounts/timer_icon.dds" should be changed to "/esoui/art/miscellaneous/timer_32.dds".

Hey Joekuza, that's a strange bug, I'll do my best to reproduce it and see if it is an issue with FTC. Thanks!

Hey firereverie, thanks for the feedback. My hope is that whatever solution we devise for SCT will be one that really works with the new integrated system. It's clear that the built-in text is the future for the game UI and I want FTC to be on-board with that. It doesn't make sense for users to be simultaneously running multiple combat-text modules.

That being said, it's really important to give FTC users the ability to improve the built-in combat text so I'll be exploring what possibilities there are to do that in a way to retains (if not improves) FTC functionality while cooperating with the overall ESO UI.
+1 For this would love to be able to use the inbuilt combat text while using ftc's alerts. Atm you have to have either both sct and alerts for ftc running or none.

Foundry Tactical Combat Version 0.72

Foundry Tactical Combat Version 0.72

Hey folks, I have released an ESO 2.3 Thieves Guild update for Foundry Tactical Combat. This update primarily serves to add compatibility with the new API version but also fixes a few minor bugs in the existing addon. I apologize that updates to the FTC addon have not been more frequent. I do, however, see a bright future for the FTC addon. I am thrilled to announce that I have added Philgo68 as a collaborator on the FTC project. Philgo is the developer behind the brilliant Master Merchant addon and I am very excited to work with him to continue improving and updating FTC. We will be sharing a joint roadmap for continued improvement of the FTC addon in the coming weeks and we both thank you for your support!

FTC 0.72 Changes

General Changes
  • Update addon for ESO 2.3 API compatibility.

Buff Tracking
  • Resolved an issue with the bugg tracking component to avoid showing buff(s) from previous targets.

Scrolling Combat Text
  • With the 2.3 update to the game, integrated combat text has been added in the Settings -> Interface menu. This integrated combat text introduces a new framework to the UI allowing dynamic positioning of elements like combat text using the on-screen position of the target. These new tools are superior to the functionality allowed to addons before. Therefore we have disabled (by default) the old FTC scolling combat text and encourage users to adopt the new built-in system.
  • Our goal for the future of the FTC combat text module will be to augment and enhance the built-in combat text by adding additional useful information that can further improve combat awareness.
