Coming Back Home
Version: 1.4.0
by: Eremith [More]
Why?:
I've made it because I've seen a post on ESO official forums, where the player was quite angry because he was sick and tired of instanced dungeon and instanced houses. The thing is, when you getting teleported from a dungeon (when you left a group) or BG (after match is over), you'll arrive somewhere in the Game World even if you were in your house when Group Tool pulled you in that dungeon/BG.
So, I decided to do this add-on to make things a little better for that guy and for me as well, 'cause I'm very annoyed with current "load screens & instances everywhere!" system.
Now you can use Group Tool in a house, and this add-on will automatically return you back home after a dungeon.


Sad news:
You cannot teleport to a house while in PvP area, so this addon only works in dungeons.

So, how does it work:
If you were pulled in a dungeon while being in a house, then when you leave a group in a dungeon, the add-on will automatically start traveling to that house after 5 seconds with a message which contains a name of the house and house owner's UserID. Caution: if you move, travelling will be canceled.
Add-on remembers the HouseID when you either go/port to your house, visit someone's primary residence via Guild/Friends/Group context menu or go in a preview house (optional, ON by default), also compatible with addons like 'Port To Friend's House'; addon forgets ID if you either exit through a door or teleport yourself somewhere outside of houses.

Options available:
- Turn ON/OFF automatic teleportation when left the group in a dungeon (ON by default).
- Remember the last visited house and don't forget it until another house is visited (ON by default).
- Notifications either at the center of the screen or in chat.
- Slash command: type /cbh to teleport to the last visited house.
- Keybinding: you can set the key to start teleportation to the last visited house. Go to the game's Controls settings and search for Coming Back Home category there.
Version 1.4.0. Changes suggested by user Baertram.
1. Added an option to turn OFF automatic teleportation.
2. Added an option to keep the last visited house info even if you go outside.
3. Added slash command and keybinding.

Version 1.3.0
1. Added setting to ignore other players' houses (addon still remember them by default).
2. Some code improvements (in particular, pre-hooking code has been deleted because since 'WolfHunter' patch there's no need to use them anymore).
3. API version up-to-date.

Version 1.2.2
Hot-fix (some debug code removed)

Version 1.2.1
1. Added localization support: Russian, German (google), French(google).
2. Code improvements and optimizations.

Version 1.2
1. I did it! Now addon will return you back to a GuildHall/your friend's house/whatever if you traveled there via 'Visit primary residence' context menu option in Guild/Friends menus. Also addon remembers specific houses when you travel there with addons like 'Port To Friend's House'.
2. Disabled addon in Battlegrounds. Sadly, it doesn't work in PvP areas due to game limitations.
3. Added house owner's name in notification messages.

Version 1.1

1. Settings menu added (Esc -> Settings -> Addons -> Coming Back Home)
2. If you're in a combat, addon will wait till the combat ends and then addon will teleport you.
3. Added notification label in center of the screen (may be turned OFF, so addon will notify you with chat messages instead)

Could this addon maybe remember the last used houseID even after I left the dungeon by porting elsewhere/leaving the dungeon via the door?
So I'm somehow able to use a slash command e.g. /cbh (coming back home) to teleport to the last house I was in before the dungeon?
And maybe have the option to not automatically port back to the house after the dungeon finished, and just use the slash command instead?
Hey, thanks for very good idea! I'll look if I could make something like that.

Update: done.

Oh, thanks a lot. I'll try this function.
