* Capping is now in maintenance mode. If anything needs to be changed/added, please contribute the code.
Capping is just another battleground timer mod with some extras.
All battlegrounds/arenas have start timers
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
Looking For Group - LFGStatusIcon support for LFD wait/port timers
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:
Incoming? Well, how many? From which direction?
Incoming BS. Oh wait, they're going LM now.
Incoming BS, but we're all here already. I mean fight at the flag, they're capping.
Need help at MT...3 enemies behind
Incoming DR...3 stealth
Flag carrier going ramp side, almost dead
Flag carrier on the way up the roof, behind tree
...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.
Narrow map setting will not work if Mapster is installed. Disabling the battlemap module in Mapster will fix this.
