PredatorBar

Version: 1.0
by: Mischback [More]

PredatorBar

PredatorBar is a small addon which provides some game-relevant information at the bottom of your screen, including:

  • XP-/Faction-bar (shows your XP if you're not max-level and will then switch to your watched faction, hovering will displayed detailled information).
  • Guildmember (shows online member, shows a tooltip, when you hover this field, opens Guild-tab when clicked).
  • Friends (shows online friends, opens Friends-tab when clicked).
  • Latency-/Memory-/FPS-display (shows tooltip with detailed Memory-information when hovered).
  • Gold
  • Durability
  • Shaman Ankh-watch (this seems broken atm).
  • LFD (click opens the LfD-menu, switches to queue-view, when you entered a dungeon-queue displaying the wait-times on hover).


Please note, that this addon is created to fit my very own needs, it is only published here, because I was asked for it in the comments of my oUF_PredatorSimple.

I will not include features I won't use. But of course you can request things, perhaps your requests are so cool, that I will consider them!

There is NO ingame config, so if you want to alter something to your needs, you will have to have some basic Lua-knowledge. The source code is pretty straight-forward, no mysterious hacking in there. You will find, what you're looking for.

Any chance of an update?

Add on looks awesome... Just wondering will there be an update?

Also how do I go about adding the following.

- Fading out during combat and in afterwards
- Moving the bar to the top

Thanks for any help.

What do you mean by "show in XP bar"?

You will have to watch a faction in the reputation-menu and it should be fine...

If it is already updated mind if I get a link mate? Thanks for the add on.
It is perfectly usable atm, I'm not a fan of toc-bumping, simply activate "use old addons" (no clue how it is phrased in English) in your addon-menu.

But indeed, an update will come really soon!
It will include some more features to make your UI "Predator-style", for example adding borders to the tooltip, minimap (if you're using a square-minimap) and a ground-up rewrite of some functions.
I'm looking forward to push these changes this weekend, but I ordered new hardware, so it may be next week.

Thank you for all the feedback, it's appreciated very much!

I'm currently thinking about adding something between the elements (since it seems to be too empty there) and 'end' that line at the corners... But it doesn't look that good, so I removed that code...

I'm currently working on this addon, to provide some styling-effects like setting up a border to the minimap and the chat-window... Release will be this weekend, I guess (but not promising anything here!)
Any way it can be a feature that can be turned on in lua for example =)
i'm just voting for clear monitor with few buttoms =)

Cool Ahnk

I do not know if this is something you already know or not, but the Ahnk issue might be a bad ID reference. I looked into it and I think the ID reference you have is for Green Voodoo Feather, not Ahnk.

If I am correct, the Item ID for Ahnk is 17030. Hope this helps you mate.

RE

Yeah, I had noticed what was causing and was actually going to mention it. Tried messing with the .lua myself to see if I could get it working and ended up breaking the addon. LOL I am not fully to par with Lua yet, but I am getting there.

Well I'll keep checking in to see how that fix is going.

Ahhh... It's not happening randomly... sometimes, when a player logs in or switches zones, the zone-information is not yet set.
If the tooltip is updated at this very moment, it breaks... Will add a fix to this, thanks for the report.

Looks very nice. You might consider fading some (or all) elements when the mouse is not over the bar/element. It's really easy to do code-wise with UIFrameFadeIn and UIFrameFadeOut. You could do that per element, for a group of elements or for all elements at once. Just an idea.
