Tankadin3 - Discussion

Postby _Chloe » Mon Sep 14, 2009 8:49 pm

Been going over Tankadin2's coding and it has me looking at ways to do things better. I'm announcing Tankadin3.

A few things to go over first:

"What about Tankadin2?" It will remain updated through the Wotlk expansion cycle.

"Will this work for Wotlk or just Cataclysm?" In short yes, and with a little modding you could even use Tankadin2 instead of Tankadin3.

To Do List: Core


* Broadcast System extraction and re-write
* Extract Announcements and make into it's own plug-in
* Extract and Modularize Tankadin Libs
* Automate Frame Creation
* Add Shared Media Support
* Quite a bit of code clean up


To Do List: Buff Reminder (formerly RF/Seal)

* Rewrite Detection methods
* Update Visuals to work as intended
* Clean up the coding and eliminate repeat calls


To Do List: Ardent Defender

* Add Additional Options to the tracking bars
* Add better details to the announcements for the Death Averted and the AD Proc


To Do List: Hand Spells


* Fix Hand of Salvation gsub strings to hopefully work for once with %.


To Do List: LDB

* Integrate Char Sheet Plug-in into this one as an option
* Change and add Feeds from other Plug-ins


Please add to the list if you would like. Also looking to pick up a few authors to help with upkeep and writing new plug-ins. Send me a PM if you are interested.

Crap, my post got removed.

Would it be possible to add an option to only announce certain message locally? For instance I want most of my abilities broad-casted, but I don't want the raid spammed every time AD reduces damage.

That's on the list with the Broadcast re-write.

would also rock to be able to choose the output channel for broadcasts...

i.e. let healers know AD procced in the healer channel; let dps know your avengers' shield missed in dps channel; etc

One thing I've always wished Tankadin2 would do is give me the option to automatically disable the announce feature in PvP. I don't mind at all spamming my raid with the message during boss fights, but I'd love to have a "Disable Announce in Battlegrounds/WG" check box so that I don't spam the Wintergrasp / battleground raid every time I die.

@trellian - The new Broadcast system will be able to handle that.

@theckhd - I should be able to work that in.

I'd like a small EavesDrop-like Frame for the AD PlugIn. After the fight/wipe it'll be nice to recontruct why AD procced or why I died, so I can tell my healers in detail what just happened, even it is 5, 6 oder8 minutes combat-time ago.
Is this possible ?

In advance

Actually not sure if tankadin2 has this or not, but perhaps an option to only announce AD to self data in raids? Or only anounce data if AD proc'd.

Last time I had AD tracker enabled, I was constantly spammed with "AD Total damage averted - 0" or something along those lines every time I left combat when soloing.

You mentioned in a reponse to my earlier psot Tankadin3 would be able to do this, so adding here to make things (hopefully) a little easier.

- Otherplayer tank spec/class statistical analysis and comparrison.

(i.e scans target player's talents and gear, calculating their defence, avoidance, unhittable/unrushable status, and effective health - then comparing to yourself).

one little thing i wouldnt mind seeing is a option to remove bubble so you dont have to double click macro, master and commander has this option but since its not been updated it still removes our bubble wall also.

first of all amazing addon.

1) how about a option to have it turn off all tanking related stuff when you are in a certain spec (so you dont have to switch off RF reminder in ret/holy and you dont get AD text when your dont have it)

or ever beter have it customizable like you can have seal and hand warnings for ret and prot but only have RF warning when prot

2) how about warnings for aura mastery (not that many tankains have it but it cant be very usefull on some fights) and divine sac.

3) I dont know if this is the combat log or what but is there a way to turn off it saying that frisbie or taunts missed if the target is immune (as in banish ect)? rather then have the raid warning go out. (be good when I use my shield, it skips to the banished target and says it missed
