Grimoire Of A Thousand Souls
Note: This is the "work in progress" test version of GOATS. If you want the last release check here
This is my first attempt at something I've ever wanted to have: an ingame automatically-growing archive of EVERY demon I enslave in the World of Warcraft.
This idea came to my mind while reading the warlock forums. I was overwhelmingly bored by those "low DPS" threads when I suddenly stumbled across something I thought interesting. It was a compilation of demons (with skills and stats) somebody had enslaved in Outland.
However, as wonderful as that list could ever be, I'm sure it must've been a PITA to gather the info, format it and publish it. Thus the idea of creating a mod like this one was born among the lines of that thread.
Time went on as I waited for someone with .lua knowledge to take over this project, but no one seemed to care about it.
That's when I decided to learn lua and xml and write it myself.
What does it do?
Whenever you enslave a demon, a message should appear on your screen stating: GOATS: New demon tracked! or GOATS: Already known if (guess what!) you have already tracked it.
From that moment, you'll be able to check that demon's spells, stats (including elite status) and even appearance by clicking on the GOATS-Minimap button. And by appearance, I mean his/her fully textured model.
To avoid having to load those models every time, though, a simple frame and a line of text will tell you what kind of demon it was (eredar, felguard, imp,...).
Thre's also a feature that lets you "comment" a demon if you find it necessary. Said demon will appear in a different color and every time you check his/her stats and skills, you'll be able to see the comment you wrote.
The color in which normal, commented, elite and elite-commented demons are listed is fully customizable in the options menu (check addons\GOATS or middle-click the minimap button).
You can now check if a demon is on your list or if you got an IMMUNE message from him just by hovering over his model or his target frame.
All descriptions will be shown in English for non-supported locales (supported locales are: French, Spanish and English).
If you wish to contribute, feel free to do so
Sorting, though, is on the To-Do list.
Hope you like it.
