InFlight  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.001
by: totalpackage [More]

InFlight is a simple flight timer mod. It simply serves as a lightweight alternative to other flight mods that does the same thing; in most cases, InFlight will do a lot less (which is the main motivation behind InFlight).

YouTube Intro



Current Features:

  • Take-off confirmation
  • Many customization options for the look of the timer bar
  • Notes support for Cartographer_Notes and HandyNotes
  • Support for Druid-only, Plaguewood Tower, and other special flight paths (needs localization data for non enUS clients)
  • Already has most of the default data; automatically adds or updates new data
  • Colors which flights locations are known/unknown (data is only updated if it shows up on the taxi window when opened)


How to Use:
  • InFlight is LoadOnDemand to avoid loading bulk when not needed
  • InFlight_Load is required for InFlight to work, but InFlight_Load does not require InFlight
  • InFlight_Load also handles/saves Cartographer_Notes and HandyNotes data. You may delete the "InFlight" folder if you do not care about flight timer and just want the location icons.
  • "/inflight", right-click on the timer bar, or check interface options to customize
  • Shift left-click and drag to move the timer bar
[*]To disable POI locations: /run InFlightCartoDB="disable" ReloadUI()[*]To enable/reset POI: /run InFlightCartoDB=nil ReloadUI()


How to Contribute:
  • Updating flight times data - submit the file .../WTF/Account/<Account Name>/SavedVariables/InFlight.lua here
  • Updating detection of special flights (only repeatable ones): report the gossip text (text you click to start the flight) and the location text above your minimap
  • Updating flightmaster locations: either report the zone with x/y coordinates of the flightmaster or submit .../WTF/Account/<Account Name>/<Realm>/<Char name>/SavedVariables/InFlight_Load.lua


Features That Won't Be Implemented, So Don't Ask:
  • Saving flight costs data (Do you need to know if you have to walk instead?)
  • Detailed tooltips and connect-the-dots
  • I recommend FlightMap as a superior alternative (especially if you want any of the above).

Me too... just logged in to see if there was an issue here. Mine are too long. I just took what is always a 9 minute flight and it showed up as 18. (Still only took 9)

The real problem should be if it is not updating the data with the correct time after taking the flight. Issues could have occurred in the past if you were missing a flight connection and had to take a longer detour or errors in past versions of InFlight.

I don't have these problems. You should delete your InFlight SavedVariables to get rid of all the bad flight data you seem to have.

Now that would be something, InFlight slowing down your flights

I'm happy to report that InFlight appears to be ready for patch 4.0.1. I'll start collecting flight times if you're willing to merge them into your next release, totalpackage.

Feature request:
Can we get an option to set an outline on font strings as an alternative to shadows?

Most of the data will be out of date. It would be great to get updates both for the flight times and master locations. I thought I already had the outline option like my other mods. I'll put it on to-do.

Nah, that option wouldn't be so useful since InFlight is rarely showing and is barely showing (it's a tiny bar!). Adding a simple option is more difficult than you think.

I never say that it was easy... i know how hard it can be to create or programming a tool....

I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem, or if it is a setting I need to change, but every time I fly somewhere and land, the timer continues counting, this time up instead of down like it does during the flight, and does not disappear or stop counting or whatever it is supposed to do.

For example, I just flew from Orgrimmar to Ratchet and after I have landed my timer is at about 15:23/?? and still counting up, lol.


-Edit-
I guess I should also mention that I am on a 3.3.5 server and using the 4.0 version of InFlight. I didn't see any reason to use any of the 3.3.0's since your current version just says 4.0.1 compatible.

Not sure how often the Author(s)/Helper(s) come look at the site here so just wanted to post early. Thank you for all the work you do making/updating this mod and my family and I appreciate it since it helps make the game more enjoyable. I wanted to wish You and Your Family a Happy Holidays and New Year. Moldavia and Family

Feature request

Hi,

first of all: thank you very much for this addon!

Secondly: Might it be possible to make InFlight count down instead of showing "x:xx / x:xx" ? I'd love that (since I use the compact mode, and this would allow more space for the name of the destination).
