PortMe
Version: 3.2.0.14
by: Ne0nguy [More]
About PortMe:
So you've made a portal for the guy who gave you 3 gold. He went through, and now it is just sitting there, useless. Only one player went through and you got more than enough money to cover the reagents. So why not open it to the public?

PortMe is an addon designed for portal invite management. It responds to the phrase 'port me' in various channels.
If there is a portal active that has already been paid for, it will notify nearby players that they may use it. When they say 'port me', it will notify them of the entrance, exit, and duration until the portal expires. It will also invite them to a group.
If there is no active portal, it will tell them your location.
If you are already in a group, and cannot invite, It will notify them that no portals are available at this time.
Current Features:
  • Notify's nearby players after a successful portal spawn
  • Notify's Pary/Raid members of exact portal location (including coordinates if available)
  • Invites players who whisper the trigger word while the portal is open
  • Pings Minimap upon portal creation
  • Will not advertise or invite if you are not capable of inviting
  • Customizable outgoing messages

Requirements:
  • Class: Mage

Slash Commands:
  • /PortMe (opens the options panel)

Suggestion

Like it so far. I have a couple things I'd like to see.

Just a suggestion but could you add a slash command to customize the tell that announces the port? Every time I port now I get tons of whispers but nobody seems to get the 'magic phrase' bit. By the time I've replied and explained to everyone it is more work than the addon solved.

Also I'd like control over what channels the announcement goes out on. I.e. /s /g /1...

I think I'll disable it for now. I love the idea, the control just isn't at the level I'd like. I'm definately going to be checking back on this one.

I agree with everything trogdorhunter has said! You've got to remember that not all of WOWs players are intelligent enough to understand what 'these things' are for. So providing a simple slash command or simple GUI to allow custom messages and behaviors would be nice. Disabled for me too, but I'll be keeping an eye on it.

One thing that would be nice, is if you are able to set a "standard fee" and it requires it from the person before they are able to use the port. If that makes sense? Say you announce in trade.

"Porting from Stormwind to Shatt for the next 3 minutes. 2g per person. Msg me for exact location".

And they have to pay the fee..it doesn't open up the trade window, but just adds it to your money. Opens up a trade for them though, because they don't have the addon. If someone who is in your friends or guild list, you can select pass or charge before it accepts their "trade money". I'm not sure how that would work, but dang that'd be niiice.

This way, you can get multiple gold for the one portal ^_~ Hey, a person has to earn their gold somehow *blush* lol

PortMe has been updated to make it a little more 'customer friendly'
There is still no customizable options yet other than editing the LUA yourself, however I am working towards releasing a version with a GUI panel soon.

With that you will be able to customize all outgoing messages as well as invite options

Progress

Development progress: (features for the next releases)

New features
* GUI Options Screen
* Chat Alerts for players that do not have PortMe

Current Issues
* This addon works fine. If it is the only instance of the addon running on the realm
* currently responds to to many triggers, which quickly floods chat and turns into spam

Next version

I rewrote most of the code in this add-on.
The next version Does have customizable phrases.

You will be able to change:
* The invite trigger
* The "Portal Spawned" /s message
* The "Portal Spawned" group message
* The responce to portal requests when you are able to invite them
* The responce to portal requests when you are not able to invite them

Unfortunately there is still no interface, but the slash commands are very capable.

This version will be released on patch day, 3.1

Known Bug in Version 3.1.1.11 (5/3/09)

Well it looks like I managed to break with this update.
There is currently an issue with loading the saved variables that will cause PortMe to trigger off of any whisper or /say event.
I will post an update shortly.
