Bearing - Direction & Area
Version: 0.0.213.18.11.9
by: unLeashed3k [More]
Features
  • The cardinal direction your avatar is facing
  • The area you are currently in
  • (Fixed / v100025) A short notification if your character is lacking a food/drink buff (defaulted to off)
  • (WIP as I learn everything that is new; still works for togglable abilities back from 2015) Notification if you've not applied self buffs that are on your Action Bar
  • Quest Area notification
  • Coordinates (shown only if you stand True North)


Toggling Hunger Messages
This feature is defaulted to off (/hunger 0) and may be toggled on by setting the amount of minutes you wish to see the message when you do not have a food/drink buff.

"/hunger 30" to show a message every half hour
"/hunger 3" every three minutes
"/hunger 0" to never see a message
"/hunger" to see current setting

Once turned on the message will always appear shortly after losing a food/drink buff and then as defined by the user set parameters.

2015-03-20: Changed the sound when you're notified that you are hungry (so it's less annoying). This feature is still defaulted to off.

AddOn Focus & Information
There doesn't seem to be a focus, right? Well, there's not really. =)

I created this addon initially for myself only and what it does is all I [currently] want it to do for the extreme play-style I've adopted with this game, as well as a few other games.

Since I made this addon several months ago I've played the entirety of the game with no GUI (map, compass, world pins, quest tracker, action, health, stamina, magicka bars, etc) and no other Meta-data (con colors, target levels, quest levels, etc). I've had to use a lot of other addons to do this though and the result was the need to make my own addon and what this addon represents is all the information I receive during gameplay.

All the information this addon provides can be found elsewhere in the main GUI and functional of the game but I've picked out the necessities for myself. My direction, the name of the place I'm currently in, coordinates for notes (either on paper or ZAM's notebook), when I entered an "area" for a quest, and two notifications for things I often forget (when I'm hungry and when I forgot to buff).

There's even a more hardcore version of this addon I was using but dropped it to make something someone else may want to use. The first version you had to stop before the cardinal direction would fade in (and would fade out when moving) and the Area Name would not show up until you were in that area for over an hour (then it would always be present as it is now).

I'll keep adding small functionality here and there but I'm not looking to take this [addon] in any direction other then my own play-style. So if you enjoy this addon, thank you, but it's not really for everyone and most the information will just duplicate what you will already be aware of.

For those asking for customization (font size, sliders for the notifications) I could potentially do that in the future (even near future) but it would all be slash commands. I don't have much programming experience so I don't want to have to figure out how to use the libraries and rewrite code to make a settings page in the AddOn Settings. As I said, slash commands are easy enough when I get around to it.

Thanks for reading! ~phew~

I may get around to doing this, sure. Don't hold your breath. =)

I updated my page with a new section that may explain my hesitation to just jump right in and start adding customization.

Thanks for trying my AddOn all the same and hope it helps you on your adventures.

~cheers~

Thanks and I have some more updates coming soon and new features added (which again will be off by default) when I get it finished over the next month.

As for the Discontinued flag I can't seem to remove it by updating my entry and changing its category. No idea why it's still labeled incorrect. I think I need to fully delete and reenter it.


it seems to be out of discontinued^^ i dont know what you did, but it worked :3
Asked an Admin nicely if I could have it moved.

Would you add some option for direction indicator like followings:

Location name ON/OFF
Font Size, Color
Lock/Unlock position

Anyway, thank you for releasing nice add-on!
Ditto on some options or presets. I'd love to remove all the colour and make it a little smaller, as well as disable the quest area notification.w

Thanks!

I used to have the code, before making it available here, just toggle between true|false and that's exactly how it did work but, now, so long as the feature is not off (set to zero) it'll always fire the message shortly after you lose the buff (around 10 seconds) and then whatever you have manual set it at (1 - 60), after that first message.

For now, just set it to "/hunger 60" and you will get a message just after you lose the buff and once an hour (which should probably be enough to theoretically work the way you want).

Cheers, hope that helps. Ok, now it's the weekend play and beer time.

We're the minority

~laughs~ Yeah, the vast majority will probably think this addOn is pretty dumb being it does have mostly redundant information; so it's not needed.

Anyways, about to upload another version in a hour, or so, that allows you to toggle the messages off (set at 0) or on (set to X amount of minutes). Just doing some testing first and making sure it's loading and saving correctly.

Nice to met another person that plays as organically as I do. I may move absurdly slow (leveling) but the immersion is worth all the extra hours put into the quests. With the quest trackers and everything else leading you to the objective it can take a matter of a couple minutes to finish a quest. Where's the fun in that *IMO*!? =)

My ultimate goal was to remove as much information as possible with other addons and use my addon for essential information. I think I hunted down one quest objective for over eight hours last weekend without having a compass [quest marker] or map and loved every minute of it. =)
Hehe, go questing without compass and pins it's awesome : D I'm also new to coding, I have made some personal addons (for roleplaying, I don't upload them because lot of people would see them stupid addons... There are people that already think that when I tell them about this addons), and your addon makes the game more immersive. If someday you make something more about the thirst and hunger, and add them to this addon, it would be awesome : D I don't know the rest of the people, but I can forget my character is hunger, or I just ignore the message sometimes hehe : ). Keep up this good work! ^^
