Capping  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v6.1.01
by: funkydude , totalpackage

Capping is a battleground timer mod with some extras.

Current Features:

  • All battlegrounds/arenas have start timers
  • Ashran - Event timers, battle timer, graveyard timer
  • Alterac Valley - Node timers, auto quest turnins, and sync
  • Arathi Basin - Node timers and final score estimation
  • Eye of the Storm - Flag respawn timer, flag carrier display, and final score estimation
  • Isle of Conquest - Node timers and siege engine timer
  • Warsong Gulch - Flag respawn timer and flag carrier display with health percent
  • Wintergrasp - Start timer, wall alerts, and auto show zone map
  • Zone Map - Change scale, narrow, and hide border
  • Other - Port expiration timers, queue wait timers, scoreboard/capture bar/vehicle seat repositioning

How to use:
  • Show options - "/capping" or right-click on a timer bar/anchor
  • Toggle anchor - left-click on a timer bar or use options menu
  • Send time info to SAY - shift left-click on that timer bar
  • Send time info to BG - ctrl left-click on that timer bar
  • Hide timer bar (also leaves queue if related) - ctrl, shift, or alt right-click on that timer bar
  • Target carrier (in WSG or EotS) - left-click on the carrier's display
  • Send carrier info to BG - ctrl left-click on the carrier's display

Why no auto-release and auto-join?:
  • I try not to promote bad habits in my mods.
  • No auto-release because knowing when you should or should not release is a part of being a smart player in battlegrounds. For example, say there is five seconds left to capture blacksmith and you die there. Auto-release will send you to the starting area, but if you wait five seconds, you release to blacksmith graveyard.
  • Another reason not to use auto-release is to have time to spy on the flag carrier after a failed kill attempt.
  • Auto-join was useful when there were single queues and long wait time/afk time. Today is different, of course.
  • I'm not telling you how to play, just giving you my reasons.

Why no convenient "Incoming" and such buttons?:
  • The users and I had a discussion about this before when Capping was on wowace. If spoiled, the users would not type something important if there's no lazy way to do it. Am I right?.
  • Messages probably no mod covers:
    1. Incoming? Well, how many? From which direction?
    2. Incoming BS. Oh wait, they're going LM now.
    3. Incoming BS, but we're all here already. I mean fight at the flag, they're capping.
    4. Need help at MT...3 enemies behind
    5. Incoming DR...3 stealth
    6. Flag carrier going ramp side, almost dead
    7. Flag carrier on the way up the roof, behind tree
    8. ...and so on
  • Don't you love seeing "INCOMING BS" "INCOMING BS" "INCOMING BS" with 2 enemies incoming and 5 people already defending? After about 5 more come to help chase these 2 kills, you get spammed "BS CLEAR".
  • Plenty of standalone mods that do this, so use those if needed.

Known issues:
  • Narrow map setting will not work if Mapster is installed. Disabling the battlemap module in Mapster will fix this.

Fix EoTS flag respawn time.
Fix WSG end timer bar restarting frequently.
Fix landmark error when zoning.
Improve the queue time code and always show a paused queue.
Add flag assault counter for EotS.
Start WSG remaining time bar earlier.

No LUA Erros popping up. I made a complete wipe of Interface and WTF and will start with a fresh installation of Capping. I fiddled around with the LUA before you took the addon over so theres maybe stuff leftover thats disrupting the work. As time goes by i will investigate it more, fresh install should show where the problem lies.

Not sure why that wouldn't be working for you, please enable Lua errors in the "Help" section of the Interface Options.

Shift click is say, Ctrl click is Intrance/Raid, I haven't changed this. I'll need to try clarify it somehow.

Its broken for me since the release. I will investigate it further as it seems its not working sometimes and sometimes it is. What I noticed so far:

Not working: Eye Spawn Timer in Arenas, Start Timer in Arenas, Flag Respawn Timer in Warsong
Working fine: Gilneas, Arathi

Have long since switched to Big/LittleWigs for my Raid /Dungeon needs, and only kept hold of DBM so far for the PvP mods.
Nice to see this project being resurrected.
Thank you.
