Zone History
Version: 0.5
by: desp [More]
Zone History is a small Addon that stores
the following information (per character) for all zones you visit:

- The last time you entered this zone
- The total amount of time spent in this zone
- The number of times you visited this zone

Zone History should work with all languages, zones and instances.

Slash Commands: /zh or /zonehistory

/zh h
Lists all visited zones that are not on your blacklist and in which
you spent more than autohide minutes.

/zh h ID
Prints history info on zone ID (to get ID, use /zh h).

/zh DELETE ID
Deletes history info on zone ID (to getID, use /zh h).
This does only work for zones you are not currently in.
See the important topic below for further information.

/zh bl
Shows all blacklisted zones.

/zh bladd NAME
Adds the zone NAME to the blacklist.

/zh blrem NAME
Removes the zone NAME from the blacklist.

/zh timeout SEC
Sets the timeout. If a timeout is set, history information
on a zone will only change if you stayed in this zone for >= timeout.
This will prevent multiple increments of the visited counter and updates
for the "last visited" date if you are just flying through the zone or the like.
Use /zh timeout 0 to disable this feature.

/zh autohide MIN
If MIN > 0, ZoneHistory will only show zones in the zonelist in which
you spent more than MIN minutes. Use /zh autohide 0 to disable this feature.

/zh s
Enables or disables messages upon zone changes.

Important: If you delete a zone, enter a zone you've not been before
or use bladd or blrem, the zone IDs of all visited zones (/zh h) will change.
Thus, if you want to delete several entries, use /zh h everytime you delete
an zone in order to get the correct id for the next zone you wish to delete.

Please notice that information is stored per zone-name.
Thus, if you change the client language, Zone History will create new entries.

If you like this addon, you might also like Play History.

Addon Dead with 4.0.1

Hi,
Any idea if there is an update in the works for the new patch? This addon is completely dead on my end with all the updates to WoW.

Thanks,
BJR

Regarding the topic on fly-checking:

I decided not to add this feature as i wanted the addon to stay as lightweight as possible.
You can achieve the same effect with the new timeout / autohide features though.

Neat ideas for simple addons.

One change that might be good either as a hardcoded default or an option for Zone History,
would be to check if player is on a taxi and suspend recording maybe?

Checking UnitOnTaxi("player") along side PLAYER_CONTROL_LOST/PLAYER_CONTROL_GAINED should do the trick
Good idea, i'll add this to the next version. Thanks!

Thanks Olove
Sorry Olove, but I won't add that kind of feature.
I'm kinda sure that there are quest history addons around,
I had one running a long time ago.
And that also surpasses the 'usefullness' of this addon; it's supposed to be a fairly simple and low-CPU addon, and if we'd add what Olove suggested it'd go WAY up. Olove, if you don't use Questhelper (or sit in your room like a bot with brains turned off), you can think of most of the quests you've done by looking in www.wowhead.com, and see what you're missing.
I like this addon, and posted it on guild home page for downloads ^^
