CoolLine  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.001
by: totalpackage [More]
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 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.

Disable bags did it. Thanks.

It isn't filitered, but it does not appear.

I have not checked to see if other engineering items/enchants work with it.

Thanks a lot for this addon, I was looking for something to help me in keeping my rotation up and I've found the "external support" really useful.

For people out there who have little to no knowledge of scripting maybe it might be useful to mention this macro I'm using to have Immolate dot duration appear on the timeline:

#showtooltip
/script name, rank, icon, cost, isFunnel, powerType, castTime, minRange, maxRange = GetSpellInfo("Immolate")
/script CoolLine.NewCooldown(name, icon, GetTime()+(castTime/1000)+15, false);
/cast Immolate

You should do the bar on scale, such as (seconds) 0-10-20-30-40-50-60+...
CoolLine is actually easier to read than mods of this type due to its linearity (others are exponential). But if you want that, then CoolLine is totally the wrong mod to be using.

Nice addon, very useful but one thing ruins the whole thing.

The bar is not on scale therefore is pretty hard to visually understand how long until the spell cooldown is over.

In other words, when the cooldown begins, the spell icon appears but moves very slowly, then as it approaches the end it gets faster then at 3 seconds it goes very fast, traveling a bigger part of the bar than the two minutes before.

You should do the bar on scale, such as (seconds) 0-10-20-30-40-50-60+

That would prevent the cooldown icons from bursting up as it reaches the next timeline.

Don't understand how to use "external support".
Want to add Fairy Fire, Insect Swarm and Moonfire. Is this possible?
I've tried to do this with "/coolline Fairy Fire". Get the chatinfo "Fairy Fire" added to filter, but no icon shows up.
I'm using the german client and my English is not the best so I hope you would try to explain what external support means in this case.

You want to filter those spells out, correct? Make sure you've entered the correct spell name or link.

If you're going to use a macro, why need an add-on to do it? http://www.wowwiki.com/API_GetSpellCooldown

Other than for configuring, CoolLine will not be clickable for any reason.

Reporting CD

I know it will make it look closer to Ellipsis and that you dont like it generally ...

But the ability to click the spell icon and report party/raid how long till that ability is ready would be great (as a resto druid everybody wants to know when Rebirth, aka BR, will be ready).

I see we can add it manually and even after looking at ckeurk's post im lost on how to do it lol If you have some spare time to type hat i need to add that would be awesome, if not its no big deal. Your add-on is still fantastic without it.
