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.

Since I cannot test most battlegrounds (characters are now too low and no BG activity on PTRs/BETAs), I decided to discontinue Capping. If someone wants to maintain it, I would be more than delighted.

You can queue for a BG and then right click the timer and select options.

Re: addOn stoped working in 6.0.3 (WoD)

I'm still using in 6.03. Is there a particular BG that is causing you problems?

Just rename Interface\AddOns\Capping\core.lua to whatever and copy this file to that directory. Reload your UI and you should be all set!

EDIT

I did a quick test and there was one error, but it is still working fine.
Thanks for this! Works great now, was hopin someone could update or take this over.

They're giving a free 7-day game time right now.

There are a few bugs. I've noticed the FCs in WSG don't always display right next to the faction but are instead down a little bit.

Capping is still working in 6.0.2 (admittedly I've only gone into AV so far) so no reason it shouldn't work in WoD.

Add LUI name to Timer List

Would it be possible to add an LUI element name to the timer list display? I'm trying to be able to hide the display using the LUI V3 UI addon. Currently it states that the Capping addon only has one frame named which is the anchor.
