QuestMods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.3.1

QuestMods by Yarko
------------------
PartyQuests light. I wrote this when I realized that Cosmos PartyQuests was not reliable and very heavy. People liked it so now it's here!

NOTE: The party parts of the addon are no longer functional, and, at this time, I have no plans to get them working again. If I have the desire and the time in the future, I might get to them. So, this is QuestMods light.

Basic functionality
-------------------
- Shows quest levels in the quest log (of course) and also in the watch frame and map. This feature can be shut off in interface options.

- Shows a clear message on the screen when objectives for a quest are complete. Can be configured to play a sound as well (defaulted on).

- Configuration option allows user to send quest objective progress updates to the chat window for easy review.

- Configuration option allows quest objective progress and completion to be reported to party through chat.

- A button and message appear to the right of the center of the screen when the player receives an item that starts a quest. A sound can play as well if configured to do so (defaulted on). Left clicking the button will open the player's bags. Right clicking will simply hide the button. The button disappears when clicked or when all quests have been activated from the items. Can be configured to display button upon login when user has unactivated quest starter items in bags. Button can be moved by holding down shift, left clicking on the button and dragging with the mouse. A configuration button has been made available in configuration options to make the quest starter alert button visible for moving if it is not visible.

- Keeps track of which quest headers were collapsed and which quests were being tracked for each character through logout and login.

- Player can use ctrl+click in the quest log to drop a quest. Doing so will prompt the user with a confirmation dialog. If shift+ctrl+click is used, the confirmation dialog will not appear allowing for quick dropping of multiple quests.

Configuration
------------
Use the QuestMods options panel to configure the add-on by opening the main menu, clicking the Interface button, clicking the Addons tab, and selecting the QuestMods entry.

Yes. I am aware that there is some problem running QuestMods with NotesUNeed. I will check into it eventually.

Aren't those the best? They finally added sourceIDs to SPELL_AURA_REFRESH events, but now those events are firing when other players apply the same spell. Very possible this bug was always there but impossible to see without knowing who cast the spell.

issues in 3.1

Keybinding opens Log and Details, but only closes Log leaving Details open.

Also, error when trying to add quests to tracker.

Error below also seems to be causing menus to not retain checkmarks in option (discovered with DamageMeters). Disabled this addon and everything works fine again.

The newest version works better with Lightheaded than the last one, which didn't at all. If you turn on the toggle option in QuestMods, you can view the Lightheaded window by toggling the detail window. Of course, that is not ideal. The ideal would be that the Lightheaded window be attached to the detail window when the detail window is open and the log window when the detail window is closed. Or something like that. I'll give it some thought.

But let's be clear: Lightheaded doesn't work with QuestMods, not the other way around.

just kidding!

IMO one mod doesn't replace another unless the new mod can do everything the previous mod did and more.

I'll stick with DW for now but will keep checking back to see what the author of this mod comes up with... lots of potential here.

DoubleWide is the exact opposite of heavy and it is not abandoned, it is working fine.

Mods that do one thing and do it well don't need to be updated every week to be considered uptodate.
