Group Leader  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.31
by: Adein [More]
I've stopped maintaining this for moment, since Zenimax added a groupleader feature to the game. I may update the addon in the future to have some extra functionality, time permitting.


Author: Adein
Guild: Eternal Defiance

Group Leader adds a custom marker (an * symbol) to the compass and the map to show you where the leader of your group is currently located. You can also use /leader to set (and clear) a different group member as the tracking target.

Perfect for PvP or raids when you have trouble finding/following your group leader!

Commands:
/leader - when used without a group members character name, it clears the tracking back to the group leader.
/leader name - changes the tracking target to the group member's character name you specify. e.g., /leader Adein

If you have a feature request or run into a bug, please comment. If you wish to contribute and are familiar with Lua/Git, please send me a PM.

Sometimes the star on the compass for the group leader vanishes no matter how close or far away I am from them and it doesn't come back if I pick another person to start tracking. I'd also like to request a feature to track multiple targets on the compass not many just so you can keep tabs on 1 or 2 friends in a large group for example, in addition to tracking the group leader.

This is not possible with the API they provide us. However, they are supposedly adding some Groupleader icon functionality in the Craglorn patch, whenever that happens.

I was getting this error


It seems I had ". ." On lines 287 and 293.

local mapPinLayout = {
level = 200,
texture = textures[db.leaderSymbol] .. colors[db.mapColor],
size = 40,
}

local compassPinLayout = {
maxDistance = db.compassMaxDistance,
texture = textures[db.leaderSymbol] .. colors[db.compassColor],
}
I edited it locally to this:

local mapPinLayout = {
level = 200,
texture = textures[db.leaderSymbol], colors[db.mapColor],
size = 40,
}

local compassPinLayout = {
maxDistance = db.compassMaxDistance,
texture = textures[db.leaderSymbol], colors[db.compassColor],
}
Disclaimer - I am not the author, and I've never developed with LUA code before, but this is just me tinkering (As a small hobby)

Worked for me, hope this helps others or author if this is the fix.

Suggestion (I think this is all possible from what I've seen other addons do...)

When a specific phrase shows up in chat, mark that person temporarily.


Use case:
Anyone in the group can say "help" and they will temporarily be pinned on the compass, perhaps with an exclamation mark symbol.


See: Cyrodiil Alert which uses timer events (we need a timer event to start when they say "help" that keeps them updated but then stops when the timer runs out -- perhaps after 8 seconds)

See: Auto Invite which listens to chat takes action based on that


I think you could have a "helpX", "helpY" and "helpName" operating alongside your current "leader" variables that would track the person who last asked for help.

Bonus:
Create a hotkey people can push that will say the magic phrase.
Bonus #2:
Play a sound when they say "help" (can addons play sounds...?)

I just pushed a new version that should fix the compass issues (along with some new symbol and color choices). Let me know if the problem shows up again.

Re: Addon compatability issue

I'm guessing both addons are using the same library (there's a LibStub library that let's addons share libraries to reduce memory usage), but maybe expecting different versions of it? I just downloaded the latest version of the CustomCompassPins library and will include it in the next release. Hopefully that will fix the issue.
