Nine Resourcez
Version: 1.0.5
by: Toirealach [More]
Are you tired of taking the 'Capture Any Nine Resources' and 'Capture Any Three Keeps' quests in Cyrodiil and then not remembering which ones you've actually captured thus far?

Well, here is the answer to your prayers.

'Nine Resourcez' will track when you take, complete and abandon the Capture Any Nine Resources quest as well as the Capture Any Three Keeps quest and it will also keep track of each resource/keep that you capture as part of the quest. All captured resources/keeps will have a green circle around the resource icon on the map (see screenshots).

Also, if you type '/9rcs' in the chat window box, you can see a list of all the resources/keeps you've captured thus far (see screenshots).

And if you want to change the colour of the circle around the captured resources, you can do so in the settings.

Special shout out to @Spartan-721 for not killing me when I was looking at the addon code when I should have been fighting. And also a shout out to @gamesense for helping by letting me cap a resource without killing me to let me debug some of this code.

HUGE thanks to my #1 beta tester, Lady Sabrina: Vanquisher of Infinite Resource Flags

NOTE: IF YOU INSTALL THIS ADDON AND ALREADY HAVE THE QUEST ACTIVE, THE ADDON HAS NO WAY TO KNOW WHAT RESOURCES YOU HAVE ALREADY CAPTURED PRIOR TO INSTALL. SO THE CAPTURE DATA WILL BE INACCURATE UNTIL THE NEXT TIME YOU GRAB THE QUEST.
1.0.0b1 - Seems to not be logging some captures
1.0.0b2 - turned on some debugging to help see why some captures aren't being tracked properly.
1.0.0b3 - Found a bug in the event handler for flag update events & added checkbox in settings to turn on/off debug output to the chat window. If on you will see "9RDebug: " messages.
1.0.0b4 - Identified a race condition in ZOS' code between capture area status events and alliance keep ownership change events. This attempts to deal with that race condition.
1.0.0b4a - Check in code that actually runs...duh...
1.0.0b5/6 - Yeah that didn't work
1.0.0b7 - This SEEMS to work for my best beta tester, Sabrina
1.0.1 - This is the first official release of the addon.
1.0.2 - Lists all 9 captured resources upon completion
1.0.3 - Anthonysc wanted 3 Keeps tracking too, so here it is
1.0.4 - Fixed a bug where pins were showing in city maps.
1.0.5 - Fixed a bug where pins were ashowing incorrectly in maps other than Cyrodiil

Well there you go Anthony. Three Keeps now tracked too. Want the 3 towns quest also?

Great update, thanks for adding Keeps!
But don't be ridiculous, no one has ever done the capture Towns quest

And interesting note about the flag flip for the 9 Resources quest, I haven't seen that happen personally but I also may not have failed to capture a flag all the way to the tick though.

And the other thing is...in looking at the code of that addon, the author of that addon is giving you credit for a keep capture through EVENT_KEEP_ALLIANCE_OWNER_CHANGED. This will work 100% of the time for the Three Keeps quest but is not guaranteed to work all the time for the Nine Resources quest. This will work 100% of the time for Keeps because your alliance has to flip & hold two flags to get the keep and receive the EVENT_KEEP_ALLIANCE_OWNER_CHANGED event.

But if you watch closely when taking a resource that has only one flag, there is a time difference of up to 10-15 seconds between when you flip the flag to "take" the resource and when you are actually awarded the XP and AP for taking the resource. This is because if there are enemy forces also at the resource they can cause the resource to not be fully held. If you and your allies then die at that resource and the enemy forces take it back, that other addon will have given you credit for that resource but the game will not have given you credit for that resource. I saw this exact thing happen personally when testing my addon.

This is why I don't key off EVENT_KEEP_ALLIANCE_OWNER_CHANGED in my addon. So rather than with the other addon, my addon will only tell you that you got credit for taking a keep or resource once the game gives you credit for it and then subsequently add the pin to the map.

The other addon also doesn't seem to let you change the colour of the pin? The author chose a green pin, which can be problematic to some folks with forms of colour blindness. This is why I let users change the colour of the pin.
