I wrote this because because I've always wanted a mod that would print more detailed experience information to chat when I gained experience, I first found XP Gain Notify which served that purpose well but wasn't updated in a very long time. I then found Exp2 which worked well, and was still being updated, but I preferred the format of the first, since I found Exp2's too lengthy. Later on I also found I was interested in how my partymembers were doing experience wise as we were questing or doing dungeons, so I added the ability to tell the experience information of party members that also use the mod.
So in short,
XPGain is a simple mod that prints your experience information to chat when you gain experience, in a format similar to "+1XP. (85%) 15XP to go. 15 Repititions." colored by how far into the level you are, see the screenshots for examples. If you are in a party with any others that use XPGain, you will also be able to see their experience status by typing /xpg partyexp, and vice versa if they want to see yours and use the mod (you can also do /xpg exp partyname to get a specific persons info if they use the mod). You can also do /xpg exp to get a personal experience printout without having to go and kill something, in a form similar to "Level 59 Rogue, 12.19% of the way to 60, with 151031XP (87.80%) to go." which also happens to be the format other party members experience will show as.
* GUI menu can be accessed with /xpg menu, /xpg displays all slash commands.
* /xpg expwindow, or /xpg petwindow to open or close the respective experience windows.
* Added a way for the user to input custom color values for the experience brackets (RGB values gotten from Useful Extras or any other means of getting a normal RGB value work well) either by slash or GUI.
* Integrated the Colorpicker features of Useful Extras into EMLib, so that XPGain can use those parts on its own without requiring Useful Extras. So now those that use the mod can now automatically use the colorpicker to input colors they choose into the experience percents.
* Can now choose which chat tab the on experience gain, and experience reports (/xpg exp) get sent too.
In the next couple versions I hope to add a way for those who use the mod to enter their own their own experience percents, if they want ones other then 0, 25, 40, 55, 70, and 85 percent of the way.
** As always, for the most up-to-date information, and any bug reports or feature requests you might have, feel free to post them on the portal here. **
* Add a minimap button and LDB displayer.
* Remove any bugs (if any).
* Add a way for the user to change the experience brackets (from 0, 25, 40, 55, 70, and 85 percents, to whatever they wish).
TOC Update for 5.3. No other changes needed, mod has worked normally. Next version I plan to go over the party experience code if I can get one of my battletag/realid friends that play on a different realm (very few) to make sure it will work there. Also still debating the addition of the ability to do /xpg guildexp to see the experience levels of guildies that may use the mod.
Added a short experience printout option in the menu (can also be toggled by slash command) to print experience on gain and when requested in short form (such as You gained 1XP, 99% to go, or 89% of the way to level 85), next version should have a much more customizable printout.
5.0.4 Compatibility. Fixed the options menu background to be black again, also fixed addon communication so that you can again do /xpg partyexp to see the experience of any party member that also uses the mod.
Simply the cataclysm/4.01 compatible release, otherwise same as 0.1.4.
3.3 Compatibility and TOC Update.
3.2 Compatibility and TOC Update. Essentially just an update for the TOC, so that 'load out of date addons' does not need to be checked, since XPGain was 3.2 Compatible already. Also the rarely occurring bug where other party members would have incorrectly displayed experience information for the partyexp feature should be fixed. EMLib Update.
Added options to display player experience gains, and/or pet experience gains into a window instead of to chat, as well as slash commands to toggle all the options (or display them, ala /xpg toggle status) in addition to the GUI menu. /xpg expwindow, or /xpg petwindow opens or closes the respective experience windows. XPGain is now also 3.2 Compatible.
Fixed a couple calls to the settings of UE which were copied in by mistake when pulling the colorpicker features out of it to put into EMLib which then caused errors when XPGain was run without UE loaded, my apologies for missing that and thanks for the report.
Integrated the Useful Extras colorpicker features into EMLib, so no longer need that mod to easily use the colorpicker to input colors into the experience percents. Also added a slash (/xpg channel #) for setting the channel tab that you wish the on experience gain and experience reports (/xpg exp) sent too.
3.1 Compatibility, mainly just a TOC update.
Jumped the version number significantly because not only does XPGain now have a basic GUI, but you can set your own colors for the default experience levels (0, 25, 40, 55, 70, and 85+ percent of the way to 100%). Either by slash command such as /xpg setcolor 40,157,121,10 (normal RGB values that can be gotten from the Useful Extras mod, or other normal means of getting them), entering the same values in the GUI, or using the colorpicker of Useful Extras (if you have the mod) to automatically enter the color you choose in it to the percent you enter in the GUI.
Repackages the zip so that XPGain and EMLib are at the top level, my apologies for those that may have gotten mixed up by that.
Initial Release, has experience print to chat on gaining experience or on request, as well as being able to tell the experience status of partymembers that use the mod.
