CoolLine  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.3.001
by: totalpackage, Phanx

CoolLine is a spell/item cooldown mod that displays icons on a single bar/line to give you an idea of when it will be ready. No statusbar timer and no text timer.

CoolLine is inspired by Forte_Cooldown (a module in the ForteXorcist package). CoolLine is basically a stripped down and standalone version written from scratch. The name comes from putting "cooldown" and "timeline" together (yes, lame).

YouTube Intro

How to Use

  • Change settings - "/coolline" or check Interface Options -> AddOns
  • Change position and size - unlock to make it draggable and resizable
  • Filter/unfilter a spell or item cooldown - "/coolline Spell Item Name Link"
  • Add more fonts/texture - CoolLine uses LibSharedMedia

External Support
  • CoolLine.NewCooldown(name, icon, endtime, isplayer)
    • name - unique string id of the cooldown, used as a look-up id
    • icon - string icon path used to display image on the bar
    • endtime - numerical time when the icon should expire, based on GetTime()
    • isplayer - boolean value used to determine if the icon is colored by spell
  • CoolLine.ClearCooldown(unused, name)

Notes
  • Only one spell/item will be shown in an event that multiple spells/items share the same cooldown (whichever appeared first).
  • By design, icons will often overlap; if you do not like it, this type of cooldown mod is not for you.
  • What you see is what you get. If you like the idea of this mod but want more, I highly suggest checking out ForteXorcist or Ellipsis. I'll most likely ignore requests to make CoolLine more similar to them.
  • CoolLine only does spell/item cooldowns and NOT buff/debuff cooldowns, flight timers, time til enrage, etc; this will NOT change so don't ask.

Recently, I (TotalPackage) had some requests for donation info, so here it is. Do not feel obligated; donations (or lack of) will not determine what features I do or do not implement.

Not very useful if you think about it. How often do you use cooldown spells just before combat? In terms of options, I think CoolLine is set.

What is your client's language? You may be using a very old version of CoolLine, or you most likely have an addon conflict. Try running CoolLine by itself to see if you still have problems.

You want to be able to just call the function but don't care to hook it? I guess that's fine, but you should've asked sooner. I don't like to release insignificant changes. For now, just add the line below after the NewCooldown function (line 357). It will be there in the next major release.

Code:
CoolLine.NewCooldown, CoolLine.ClearCooldown = NewCooldown, ClearCooldown

Third Party changes

Any chance you can make the NewCooldown function global?

I customize my own UI down to the very single pixel, and I sort of modify addons through a third party addon I've made for myself. I by no means intend to copy and / or change your addon (in fact I do not touch your files in any other way other than calling the functions availible through said addon). It is merely a request so that I can add my own specific cooldowns to an already really good addon.

It's odd as this wasn't happening before but since the patch I've been getting deadly throw and shoot after every ability when playing my rogue. It doesn't appear to happen with any of my other toons.

Yea, the fading is a compromise. CoolLine is set on options, so no more. I already think it has too many already for what it does.

Tell me plz where i can change this as it was before.
Current fade out is .5 sec
Lines 297-299 in core.lua
Code:
elseif remain > -0.5 then
	SetupIcon(frame, 0, 0, true, dofl)
	frame:SetAlpha(1 + remain * 2)  -- fades
Previously it was 1 sec
Code:
elseif remain > -1 then
	SetupIcon(frame, 0, 0, true, dofl)
	frame:SetAlpha(1 + remain)  -- fades
and before that it was 1.2 sec
Code:
elseif remain > -1.2 then
	SetupIcon(frame, 0, 0, true, dofl)
	frame:SetAlpha(1 + remain * .833)  -- fades
In my opinion, it would nice to have this as an option in the settings as optimal fade time is probably pretty subjective. I'd assume that the author dropped the fade time to help people who felt that the most recently ended CD was covering up the next CD in line when multiple CD's were very close to each other.

edit: add required changes to 'if' lines

Yeah, I just made it as a quick hack for my own personal usage, and it is most likely not the best implementation. There are probably better ways of doing it rather than hard-coding the abilities that require runes and have cooldowns. For example checking which abilities fit these requirements in your "CacheBook" function, storing their correct cooldowns in an array, and then doing a single equality comparison with the cooldown duration when a cooldown is added. This would have a (very) slight improvement on performance during gameplay, as well as making the addon more resilient to future modifications done by Blizzard to DK abilities.

For the text timer, this mod is more for estimation, and I already have people complaining about not seeing the icon due to overlapping. Plus ForteXorcist already does this.
Well I thought the same thing about not being able to see the icon at first but still think its worth looking into, even if only as an optional setting. Also there are always other ways to implement it, for example having the text display above or below the icon rather than inside it. Anyway its just an idea.

It could be useful to know exactly how much time is left, and shouldn't be too obtrusive.
