Capping  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v6.0.001
by: totalpackage, funkydude

* 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.

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.

Thank you so much for putting this up on Curse as well. I only have a handful of addons that don't update there, and it's nice to be able to narrow that down by one : D!

Suggestion

I didn't know where else to put it so here it goes:

Would it be possible to add a defensive/offensive icon on the Wintergrasp timer? I.E. a small shield for defensive and two crossed swords for offensive battle.

as my second suggestion it would be nice if we could report Wintergrasp timers to guild chat etc.

and btw thanks for a great addon!

No problem. Seems like Curse really improved. Plus I can disable comments there so I don't have to juggle sites to deal with users.

Finding out which side owns WG currently can only be done while in Northrend. Also, I do not want people to think "Oh crap, we'll have to defend in an hour...I'll just go do something else." Which side shouldn't matter.

For chat announce, in 3.2, everyone will have access to the time if they care to know.

Hi,

Here is an updated frFR loc if you still need one.

Also, there is a little problem with the 'IoCAssault' function on a french client: there is only one string when a node is attacked or claimed (found with strmatch(text, assaulted)) and two when a node is defended or taken (found with strmatch(text, defended) and strmatch(text, claimed)). I tried to patch it myself:
Code:
			local function IoCAssault(text, faction)
				text = strlower(text)
				for value, iconkey in pairs(nodes) do
					if strmatch(text, strlower(value)) then
						if strmatch(text, assaulted) or (strmatch(text, claimed) and GetLocale() ~= "frFR") then
							local display, itype = strmatch(iconkey, "(.+)__(%a+)")
							if itype == "workshop" then  -- reset siege engine timer
								self:StopBar(siege)
							end
							return self:StartBar(display, 63, 63, self:GetIconData(faction, itype), faction)
						elseif strmatch(text, defended) or strmatch(text, taken) or (strmatch(text, claimed) and GetLocale() == "frFR") then
							local display, itype = strmatch(iconkey, "(.+)__(%a+)")
							return self:StopBar(display)
						end
					end
				end
			end
Thank you!

Thanks. I'm not sure about the function change. Isle of Conquest alert messages are the same as Arathi Basin's, and "claim" is supposed to be the message for attacking a node that had no previous owner. Is Arathi Basin on live or PTR working fine for you?

I know it's weird. It's working perfectly on live server. I can't test Arathi on PTR because everybody is playing WG or IoC :/

Arathi Basin:
- Attack of a neutral node: <player's name> a pris <node's name>
- Attack of an enemy node: <player's name> a attaqué <node's name>
- Node successfully taken: <faction> s'est emparée de <node's name>
- Node defended: <player's name> a défendu <node's name>

Isle of Conquest:
- Attack of a neutral node: <player's name> a attaqué <node's name>
- Attack of an enemy node: <player's name> a attaqué <node's name>
- Node successfully taken: <faction> a pris <node's name>
- Node defended: <player's name> a défendu <node's name>

OK, if it makes sense to you, I'll keep it in mind. If it doesn't, it might be an error. Let me know if it changes later.

Sorry, but nope. That's not really useful info to me. I remember several occasions when someone said we only need to hold 1 base to win, then most everyone just got careless and chased kills. Then we got four- or five-capped (taking forever to win or just losing). Also, if I'm losing, do I need to wait for "5 bases to win" to get off my ass? I just want to win as fast as possible, especially in AB.

German translation seems to have changed again, the dock-messages seem to be the real ones.
And i have the feeling that the refinery was changed from "Ölraffinerie "to just "Raffinerie", i'll recheck later

So logfiles incoming
I think i've almost everything in there, except maybe the workshop/siege engine messages for the alliance .

Maybe you can get rid of a few sync-.messages if you dont trigger the siegeengine timer with the goblin yell but rather when the workshop is captured.

Is it possible to improve the accuracy of the estimated final score in arathibasin somehow? i noticed it was off by around 30 ressources often.

Map not showing up

I am using SimpleMiniMap and the zone map for Capping is not showing up at all.

Anyone know how to make it appear, I tried going into options but everything I have tried I can't get it to show up.

Thanks.

Thanks. You cannot assume a siege engine status based on workshop status. The mechanics will not start building another engine on workshop captured if there is a siege engine already out. Plus don't forget that once the siege engine is destroyed, there is no workshop event about rebuilding a new one.

The Arathi Basin scoring should be accurate to +/- 10 resources and +/- 1 second. Are you having problems on live or PTR? I'll check it out on PTR later.

Capping does not have its own zone map, only modifies Blizz's. Go to top left corner of your world map to see zone map options. If it's not there or doesn't work, don't blame Capping.

Ok, i didnt think of the fact that you can capture the workshop if there is a siege engine out there already.. Damned
Why didnt they increase the yellrange... did i file to many tickets about it? ...

I meant when we start the siege.-timer with the workshop.capture event, the only sync we need is the one when the engine is destroyed and is being rebuilt.
but this logic is flawed
