Fulminator
Version: 1.4
by: Vilkku [More]
Fulminator is an addon for Elemental Shamans that provides spell overlay effects for Fulmination by using the Blizzard spell overlays added in 4.0.1. Overlays can be enabled and disables separately.

The overlay is shown when Lightning Shield has reached a certain amount of stacks (customizable, default 9). Overlay appears after a short while or when you cast Earth Shock.

Lava Surge overlay support was dropped in version 1.4 as it is now (WoW version 5.0) included in the game by default.

All settings can be found in the AddOn options panel.

Please post any bugs, issues or suggestions in the comments, and thank you for using Fulminator!

-Added Lava Surge, huge thanks again to Jotaro for doing all the work for me, you rock!
-Added options panel

1.0b (19.10.2010)
-Implemented fixes by Jotaro (thanks!): Using PLAYER_REGEN_DISABLED instead of PLAYER_ENTER_COMBAT (seriously, I used PLAYER_REGEN_DISABLED in all my mods until the latest build where I figured I could change it, I'm not a clever man) and using GetSpellInfo() instead of the spell name when getting the number of stacks
-Removed debug lines
-The slash command shouldn't show any errors any more if used the wrong way
-Next version will have Lava Surge effects as well ;)

I was very surprised that a nine stack of Lightning Shield didn't have a spell aura for Shaman. I screwed around with making an alert in MSBT, but this is much better. Thank you.

It seems I get an error whenever I try to set the stack via the command line. Also, the aura doesn't want to appear.

Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\Fulminator\Fulminator.lua:60: attempt to compare number with nil
Time: 10/18/10 17:51:04
Count: 1
Stack: Interface\AddOns\Fulminator\Fulminator.lua:60: in function `?'
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:4106: in function `ChatEdit_ParseText'
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:3717: in function `ChatEdit_SendText'
Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:3755: in function `ChatEdit_OnEnterPressed'
[string "*:OnEnterPressed"]:1: in function <[string "*:OnEnterPressed"]:1>

Locals: arg = "<9>"
stacks = nil
(*temporary) = "<9>"
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = "attempt to compare number with nil"

localization / event

Please use PLAYER_REGEN_DISABLED instead of PLAYER_ENTER_COMBAT to start your Initialize function.

Also,
Code:
local _,_,_, count  = UnitAura("player", GetSpellInfo(324));
if you want your AddOn to work on non-english clients.

Aside from that, exactly what I was looking for, I was wondering why Blizz didn't include an aura for this in the first place.

Can we maybe get an aura für Lava Surge procs, too? They are easy to miss.

You aren't supposed to include the < or > when you do the command, I guess I was being a bit unclear. "/fulminator 9" will be enough.

I will be adding some custom error messages to the slash command to avoid confusion in the next version.

Thanks for this addon!

I'll add that in the next version, then Not sure how soon that will come out, tough. I'll also add a option to display the Lava Surge overlay every time Lava Burst becomes ready, instead of only when it's triggered by Lava Surge.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for this addon! I was really hoping to find a more lightweight mod to track Lava Surge procs and this is absolutely it. You are a god amongst men!

Just a quick note that adding Tidal Waves is on hold until someone tells me exactly how they want it to be shown :P

Great Job

I wanted to make an account just to thank you for this add-on. Blizzard completely missed the boat on this necessity, but you've picked it up wonderfully.

Great job.

THX alot :D

Thanks for the addon, its really nice to see when someone goes ahead and do blizz job for them when they dont doit themselves :P

I have one request, if possible, could you make an option to make the overlay appear also when lava burst cooldown is ready normally, i mean not when lava surge procs but when the cd is ready ?

I love being able to keep my eyes on other things in a fight than my cd's :P

Vilkku, I don't know exactly when but Blizzard have implemented their own spell effect aura for Fulmination now. It makes a sound and stays onscreen until you cast once you hit 9 stacks.

Lava Surge has a message come up on the built-in combat text, but no aura. Tidal Waves is the same, but personally I don't see the need in an aura for something that is 100% chance on specific spells.

Thanks for the info. I've been away for a week without internet access, and I'm trying to sort stuff out and prioritize my work.

I most likely won't include tidal waves. The other feature requests will be added, but I might want to try out Blizzards implementation first, and possibly rewrite the addon to tweak the way the default overlays are handled instead of doing it myself from scratch.
