Event Box Timer
Version: 2023.11.23-1.1a
by: Smugger21 [More]
I have retired from playing ESO. Anyone that wants to fork this and take over the project, feel free!



Event Box Timer
This addon was inspired by Plunder Skull Timer by code65536
Many thanks to that addon in pointing me in the right direction to make this possible and have one that will be able to track every event in one addon!

This addon will help you track the time since your last Event Box and based on the cooldown change color to represent when you are able loot another one.
Red = Still on Cooldown
Yellow = 30 Seconds Till Cool Down End
Green = You are able to acquire another.

Events:
(Other Events to Be Added as they Happen and Cooldowns can be tested)
Witches Festival / Plunder Skull's | 3 Min Cooldown
Gates of Oblivion / Coffer's | 5 Min Cooldown ( Fargrave Coffer [Deadlands] / Blackwood Coffer)

Default Settings:
Timer will Display after you acquire your first Event Box (see commands below for other options), it will stay up until you have not acquired one for 5x the cooldown (also commands below for other options).

Commands:
/ebt.autohide - Toggle (Enbable/Disable Autohide) after 5x Cooldown Reached
/ebt.show - Show the Timer
/ebt.hide - Hide the Timer
/ebt.test - Test the Timer [Hey, maybe you just need some sort of timer (wink wink)]
/ebt.reset - Reset Position, Settings and Timer
/ebt.status - Check the Status of the Timer and All Settings

Timer can be moved around your screen, just drag it where you like!

IMPORTANT NOTES:
  • Gates of Oblivion: Even though the cooldown is 5 min, there is a still a randomness to the drops after the 5 min. This will just help you know when you can get them again. (Also note that the timer is for Random World Drops and not Daily Quests. Do note it does however reset upon getting one from daily quest.)

HOW CAN I HELP?
  • Use this addon and test it!
  • Submit Bug Reports
  • Submit New Event Box Item ID's (If I have not gotten to it already)
  • Test Time Between Cooldowns (You will need an addon like Loot Log for this)
  • Send me Gold? [ Username: @Smugger21 ]



To Do List (Working on adding)
  • Log of Drops
  • Calculated Drop Rate Over Time in Time Period
  • Track Limited Daily Drops (So you know if you got that for the day)
  • Custom Timer (Be able to set the timer to something you want it to be and have it count to that)
2023.11.23-1.1a

Added Features:

  • /ebt.reset - Reset Position, Settings and Timer
  • /ebt.status - Check the Status of the Timer and All Settings

Fixes:

  • Stopping the Timer Resets the Timer Display to --:--

Thank you for this report, I will test this out. (Also Note, that you can edit Saved Var Files, Install or Change Addons and just the /reloadui command to update the changes Should save you from having to quit ESO for that sort of thing. )
I checked into this over and over again, it seems I can not get it to do what it did to you, I even tried all the way to each corner, every part of the bottom, top, sides, I can still move it around. I did however notice I was not able to move it when I dropped it behind something for example it was overlapped by the level/champion bar in the character screen, but when I got back to the main screen I could move it again.

But in case this sort of issue happens again, will add a command to reset to default location. I will also look at being able to set position via commands also in case even the default location is bad for people. I will get this up as soon as I am able.
I should also look into adding a toggle lock.

I will look into this, thanks!

You can use the /ebt.hide
The test will not go away until the auto hide time is passed, the default for the test is 3 min cooldown so 5x is 15 min, then it will auto hide if your Auto Hide Settings is set to Enabled.
Oh, you can also double click on the timer to stop and hide it.

I will keep a settings menu in mind, I am just not sure how soon that will be a thing as it will take time to implement my other features on the To Do list, I am sure it will be needed anyway with some of my things on my To Do List anyway.
