Description :

- Scout is a little add-on that serve one purpose : Reporting PvP-enabled players of the opposite faction.

##########
Features :

- Scout does its job by sending a message to the LocalDefense channel, in which you can see the Rank, the Name, the Race, the Class, the Level of the spotted player.

It will also inform of the general location of the ennemy by displaying the Area and sub-area.

Also, for increased accuracy your own coordinates are sent. There is at the moment no way of customizing this message.

To help you get to the right 'spot' in case someone else is using this add-on, your own coordinates are displayed on the top part of your mini-map.

The reporting is done on the 'Target_Player_Change' event, that meant when you acquire a new target.


##############
Installation :

- Simply put this folder in your /interface/add-ons/ directory
- Issue a '/scout default' command to set the default values
