Capping  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.003
by: totalpackage [More]
* 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.

YouTube Intro



Current Features:
  • 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:
    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.

Total I just wanted to say thank you so much for keeping this up; I'm a bigtime BGer and this is my BFF.

Edit:

One small but odd bug, for some reason the zone map is not closing when the BG ends. So eg. when I exit EotS from queueing in Shattrath, I have a Shattrath zone map.

That's not a bug. I believe you have the Zone Map set to "Always Show" on the World Map (the top left corner dropdown menu).

I checked and actually, even stranger, I had it set to "never show". I changed it to "Show in Battlegrounds" and then when I zoned out of AB it was still there, so I switched it back to "Never" and then hopped back into a BG (AB again). When I zoned out, it was still there.

Any other ideas what might cause this? I don't have any map mods installed.

Ah, you're right. They changed the variable name and location on me. Anyway, I completely removed Capping's option to auto show the zone map in battlegrounds since it was redundant.

Capping never did that. In one of the screenshots, that's Cartographer doing that. I believe other map mods do it as well.

Error with latest version?

Anyone else getting an error upon entering a BG?

\AddOns\Capping\battlegrounds\WSG.lua line 79:
attempt to index global 'AlwaysUpFrame1' (a nil value)

It also happens with EOTS.lua at line 12.

I don't recall an error when entering AV, and I haven't tried AB yet.

I'm going to assume you have another addon causing this error. Try disabling all of your mods except Capping and see if you see get an error.

Any way you could make it announce the flag carrier race and class in WSG when youu right click on the flag thingy? Other mods can do this. This would be a sweet addition to Capping. Thx!

Read the "How to use" in the addon description. It doesn't send race.
