Foundry Tactical Combat (FTC)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.67
by: Atropos [More]
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.

Werewolf timer bar is going out of its frame.

When you resize your own character frame (the one with hp, mana, stam) to make it smaller and most important shorter, fully charged werewolf timer will still have same length as original, resulting in it coming outside of its box.

Hey Atropos,

thanks for maintaining this great addon!

I'm using the combat log and it is automatically hidden if the chat is shown, or shown if the chat is minimized. But this won't work directly after login!

My chat is automatically minimized upon login (by help another addon: FCO ChatTabBrain).
Your combat log is shown properly at this time.

if I open the chat by pressing the return key or clicking/hovering (another option of the other addon) the chat maximize button your combat log won't be minimized and stays visible in the background of the chat window.

I need to press the ESC key twice so the chat and your addon#s combat log are minimized and work properly afterwards.

I'd be glad if you could fix this somehow. I bet it got something to do with an already minimized chat window at the start of the game /after login.

Thanks and keep this great addon updated!!!

Show Groupframe allways

FTC is awesome, no doubt.
But is there a way to allways show the Groupframe out of combat but hide the Player Frame?
Haven´t found a Setting for that.

Thanks for the great work!

Thanks for your continued work on FTC, Atropos. You're the author of a great addon that I couldn't live without.
Thanks for the report, OSean, I'll put this on my list of things to tweak next time I make an update.

As for more general explanation of my plans with FTC, I'm kinda taking it a bit easy right now with both the addon and ESO in general. I'm saving up my energy for Update 7 that will be hitting the PTS later this month so I've been taking a couple weeks to catch up on some single-player games that I've missed out on in the last year.

If any critical issues arise with FTC in the short-term I'll fix them ASAP, but otherwise I think I'll target the next big addon update for Update 7 which will contain a number of API changes that will allow FTC to do what it already does a lot better!

Disregard, it seems that I just had to completely reset my ESO, including closing the launcher. Great mod by the way!

Hey Osean, thanks for the report. I'm skeptical about this, it doesn't sound right to me, but I'll investigate later today or tomorrow and see if I can replicate the issue.

One qualm that I commonly hear about the new FTC is that it is difficult to tell the difference between a dead group member and a group member that is out of range. This might be a non issue for 99% of the people using it, but would it be possible to direct us to the line where the gradient of the raid frames is handled?
