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.

I'm having the same issue. I tried changing the wordings listed under this post, but it still would not work. It only works in public chat /say.

If anyone knows how to fix this, that'll be awesome.

Same with me. Ctrl+click does nothing. Right clicking on timer and clicking "send to BG" does nothing.

If someone can provide a fix for that, that'll be great. I cannot test this functionality at the moment.

i made a temp fix for me:

core.lua @548 i commented the CheckQueue out since that has benn changed and i didnt spend much time with it.
Code:
local function ReportBG(barid)  -- report timer to /bg
    local this = CheckActive(barid)
    if not this then return end
    DoReport(this, "BATTLEGROUND")
    --[[
    if not CheckQueue(this.name, true) then
        DoReport(this, "BATTLEGROUND")
	end
    --]]
reporting to bg channel works so far, so someone might have a look at the CheckQueue function on why that isnt working anymore.

5.1 renamed the "BATTLEGROUND" channel to "INSTANCE_CHAT", many occurrences of this need to be updated.

I've been wondering for a while what is the "World 3" battleground?

Also, why is Wintergrasp disabled by default?

Hi there!

I'd have some feature suggestions to make this great addon even more useful in Bgs, especially in AV.
Back in TBC I used an addon (maybe AlarGBHelper, which is pretty bugged now), which had the option to report all tower timers with one click for both sides, which was really great. It can be quite tedious to find and click each horde / alliance tower timer one by one when there are like ten or more tower and gy timers. It would be great to be able to send all horde / alliance tower statuses either by clicking designated buttons (one for alli, one for horde) or by, for example, CTRL + Middle clicking on a horde / alliance tower's timer bar. The same goes for gy statuses.

Thanks in advance,

RoL

P.S. Should anyone know any addon that has the features that I suggested above, please let me know about it
