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.

Did I miss something or do you have to configure this addon everytime you log on a character?
Settings are usually lost when your game exits without a proper logout (force close or crash). After configuring, try /reload. That would force variables to save. If that still doesn't work, you may need to delete your CoolLine WTF files.

This seems like it would need a large table of estimated data, including all spells/items with limited procs. If you want support for that, then you wouldn't mind continue using Forte. CoolLine only works for usable spells and items with known cooldowns.

Not sure what you mean by internal cooldown, but CoolLine does track equipped gear cooldowns (including trinkets).

Filter/unfilter a spell or item cooldown - "/coolline Spell Item Name Link"

I also have this problem, is there a way to ignore Deadly throw, Throw and Shoot, its always on the bars , the problem happens only when you have equiped a none throwing weapon (guns, crossbow or bow).

Btw thanks for the great addon.

It's known and intentional. If it bothers people that much, I'll look into it.

Aesthetic bug which I noticed while mashing a few buttons.

If you hit a spell so it gets a red outline as it's dropping off and fading out you get a "black icon" (background i take it?) with red border.

I'll provide a screen and I missed the optimal moment where the spell icon texture is completely gone.



edit: Oh and I use Alpha 0.5

edit2: In the meantime I've disabled "cast fail"

Ah ha! It was LunarSphere. I'll trade it for this addon any day. Thanks for the help.

Everything is great, but there is one issue where two icons would overlap and take turns going on top which is making it difficult to identify at a glance.
That is how it is by design. This type of cooldown mod is not for you. Maybe a mod more like this fits you and all the others complaining about overlapping.

If you do not mind the extra resources required for profiles, then you won't mind using ForteXorcist.

Is there a way to scale the line? I've looked and didn't find an option for it. It would be a very useful option to have.

Very nice addon BTW.

[edit: I just found out that the bar can be resized with the little red scare so it's not scaling but it allow the same thing.]
