    [Plugin] BuffBars

    BuffBars Plugin
    Download: lotrointerface.com
    Current Version: 2.1.1
    Date: 11/4/2013

    About
    This plugin provides a bar view(icon, name, timer) or slider view(all effects on one bar) of buffs, debuffs, and pot cooldowns you have on your character. It also includes a dynamic quickslot bar that will popup when curable debuffs or low morale/power conditions exist on you character to enable you to quickly clear the effect.

    Click here to see a video showing the plugin in action.

    Installation Instructions
    Unzip the PengorosPlugins folder to your Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins folder.

    The zip file is also compatible with Bredic's LotRO Mod Manager, simply drag the zip file onto the manager window and activate it.

    Start
    • After logging into a character type /plugins load BuffBars to load the plugin
    • Type /buffbars options to customize the plugin. You will want to do this at least once in order to set pots or skills for the quickslot bar(s)


    General
    • You can move the effect windows and quickslot bars when the UI is unlocked via Ctrl+\
    • You can open up the options dialog by right clicking an existing bar and choosing options or by typing /buffbars options


    Effect Windows
    Effect windows contain one or more sections of bars, buffs, debuffs, and cooldowns. A bar consists of an icon, name, timer, and a bar graph indicating the remaining time.
    • Each window can be customized to show buffs, debuffs, cool downs or any combination of the three
    • You can create multiple windows to show buffs in one, debuffs in another, and cool downs in a third for example
    • Effects are color coded based on category
    • Filter effects based on category, name, is it curable, and duration so that you only see effects you are interested in
    • Effects can be sorted by name, duration, or category
    • Bars can be filled from the top down or the bottom up
    • Customize the bar display to remove the icon, name, and or timer to suit your needs
    • Effects can optionally flash when they are about to expire
    • Effects can always be ignored or always shown regardless of filters (right click the effect and choose always show or ignore)
    • Show the window always, only in combat, or only out of combat
    • Optionally disable a window instead of deleting it.
    • The windows are fully customizable including effect colors, bar widths, font size, etc


    Effect Sliders
    Effect sliders contain all the buffs and debuffs in one bar. It accomplishes this by compressing larger time values into a smaller area so that you see the items that are most relevant. What this means is that as effects get closer to 0 they will move more quickly across the bar.
    • Each slider can be customized to show buffs and or debuffs
    • You can create multiple sliders to show specific effects on certain bars, buffs on one and debuffs on the other for example
    • You can pick the bar orientation and which direction the icons move
    • Filter effects based on category, name, is it curable, and duration so that you only see effects you are interested in
    • Effects can always be ignored or always shown regardless of filters (right click the effect and choose always show or ignore)
    • Show the window always, only in combat, or only out of combat
    • Optionally disable a window instead of deleting it.
    • The windows are fully customizable including effect colors, bar widths, font size, etc


    Quickslot Bars
    The quickslot bar is a dynamic bar that will show pots or skills when you character has certain conditions like low morale/power or curable debuffs. The conditions which show quickslots are driven by triggers. A trigger allows you to set specific conditions like only things with 'wound' in the name or show this quickslot when I don't have a motivated buff. The triggers are very flexible.
    • You can create more than one bar for different situations each with a unique name
    • Quickslots are shown based on triggers
    • Triggers are customizable and include options like effect name, effect category, curable, is the effect present or not present.
    • Slot skills or pots for each effect type by dragging the desired item to the appropriate place in the options window
    • Show the bar always, only in combat, or only out of combat
    • The level when a morale or power pot is displayed is a customizable
    • Optionally disable a bar instead of deleting it.


    Effect Logging
    The plugin can optionally log effects you receive to your general chat log. To enable this either check the logging enabled option in the options dialog or type /buffbars log enable to start the logging. Logging can be disabled by unchecking the option or typing /buffbars log disable

    Mob Debuffs and Crowd Control
    The plugin now supports showing timers for mob debuffs and crowd control. There are triggers that you can add specifically for this. In order for it to work you must be running the Combat Analysis plugin which feeds BuffBars the required info in order to display them. It can be found here.


    Known Issues
    • Only load the plugin when the UI is locked and not hidden. The current lua api doesn't have support for querying the current state.
    • Pot cooldowns are tracked base on quantities due to lack of api support. This means it is possible to fake out the system by decreasing a pot stack size by 1. In event this happens simply right click the cooldown bar to reset it.
    • The Turbine event system sometimes calls the effect removed event early. This results in what appears to be the effect being removed prematurely. It is most evident on the effect slider when the effect doesn't slide all the way to 0.

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    Extremely nice plugin, there are some things I would like to see/don't know if they are already there:

    1)Long term buffs that are about to expire
    --I have things like IDOME, Motivated, etc on ignore but I do want to know when they are 1min from expiring.
    2)Skill cooldowns
    --Claming Verse has a 1m cooldown and unless you trait for it a 30s duration, I would like to know when my skill is back you besides staring at its icon
    3)Bindable quickslots
    --I think this was covered as something that is not do-able currently.

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    oh! and another thing...I would like to know when I am out of combat and buffs like Red Haze are about to drop (its 9 seconds for everything that says 'expires when out of combat for a short while)

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    Just to follow up Pengoros,

    Can you add a feature to ignore the individual CD Timers in the same way we ignore individual Buffs and Debuffs?

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    Agreed with the above posters. I love this plugin but it would be most effective if I could either a) set the maximum duration threshold to have buffs be displayed or b) ignore certain buffs completely



    Edit - Looks like certain buffs are ignorable, and by time threshold! Sweet!

    Hello.

    First thanks for making the plugin. I really like it.

    Second, I would like to ask if you could possibly add stun and root potions to the plugin, to pop up like the current cure, morale, and power potions do.

    Thanks.

    It depends on if the stun/root conditions in the moors are easily detectable. I'll take a trip out there and do some research.

    Buffbars hasn't got all the debuffs recorded right?

    Having a current issue in Durchest where the 'Burning Fire, Resistance Tactical (67)' giving off the following:

    Bug: Potion binds to Quickslot 1

    I'm having an issue wherein the plugin causes my standard Quickslot 1 to be bound to one of the cure potions. This happens invisibly--the UI continues to show the skill in slot 1 but pressing the key consumes a potion rather than triggering the skill.

    This doesn't happen immediately at load time, and I haven't been able to reliably recreate it. I suspect it occurs the first time the plugin prompts you to use a potion with the custom Quickslot bar.

    The user can temporarily "fix" this by dragging the skill off and back onto Quickslot 1.

    Thanks for your work on this plugin Pengoros, it's a fantastic add-on!

    This is the only debuff that seems to cause a problem. I haven't been able to log it yet so I can tell why.

    This is a problem with quick slots in general. Check out this thread for more info.

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    Firstly, fantastic plugin, been using it on all my toons.

    Secondly, some constructive input -- it'd be nice if there was an option to add an extra slot to each debuff quickslot, so that you could slot both a potion and a class-specific skill to cure debuffs. On my Champ, sometimes I want to use FN, and sometimes I want to use a pot, depending on the number of debuffs and/or cooldown timers...

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    Love the mod, great job.

    I have a question. Would it be possible to allow the buffbar to display if you have your prof tracking up, and which one?

    I'm working on a more generic way to tie quickslots to buffs/debuffs. This would enable you to do something like this.

    Unfortunately the tracking skills don't give any buff indicator so we are unable to track if you have it on or not with the current lua implementation.

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    I have a question about the ignore function. Does it save which debuffs you have ignored for all your characters or each one individually?

    It saves them on a character and window basis. So for example you could have one buff window ignoring token/food effects but another one showing them.

    Looks like you can copy the information from one character to another if you find the options file for each character. Any danger in doing this, except having class specific skills in the quickslots possibly? (I copied the setup I was using for my LM to my Guard with no apparent issues.)

    Also, as for the skills/pots, I just setup 2 bars, and so both pop up for a wound for instance on my LM, have health/power pots on one and heal/power draw on another.

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    I have come to love and rely upon BuffBars ... many thanks.

    However, I have just discovered that I am apparently missing some significant feature ... the Quickslot bar -- I have been unable to populate it....

    I finally stumbled on the YouTube video (I had never watched the whole thing), and discovered how to do it.

    1- any chance you could put an "outline" above the tags in the setup screen to make the needed action more obvious.
    2- similarly, add an instruction to the "Quickslot Bars" section of your instructions -- "drag the desired item stack to the appropriate place in the setup window." (or some such verbiage.)

    Again, this is a WONDERFUL accomplishment. Thanks for all the hard work in conceiving and implementing it.

    Re: [Plugin] BuffBars

    Awesome plugin!

    The only suggestion i would make is to have ability for it to show up even in f12 mode like the palantir.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    I'll add an option so you can ignore F12.

    Try the latest version, it doesn't have any external required dependencies.
