PartySpotter  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v5.17.70000
by: spiel2001, Telic
Telic has been kind (crazy) enough to allow me to take over the care and feeding of this beast. Please be patient with me a bit while I get up to speed on the code. I'll get regular updates going as soon as I can. In the meantime, please feel free to visit PartySpotter's official technical support forum in the "Support" section at http://forums.nUIaddon.com for any questions or comments you may have on this addon.

Summary

Small, standalone Modification that adds extra information to the Party/Raid dots and tooltips (compatible with BG Raid groups).
Compatible with WorldMap, BattlefieldMinimap, AlphaMap (including AlphaMap Battleground maps).

Has Multiple viewing modes - just use the provided key binding or Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter button to cycle through them when in a Raid/Battleground and see which mode you find most useful.

Default mode displays player dots as numbered icons showing the Raid Group they belong to, and are also coloured based on the character class of that player.

Rings around player dots will also indicate when players are :
Corpses (Black ring)
Ghosts (Grey ring)
AFK/Inactive (Pink ring)
In Combat (Red ring)

Now integrated with both the Raid Frame, and the Battlefield Score Board
: mouse over players to flash their position on the map.
: mouse over Class buttons to highlight all players of that class on the map.
: Alt-Click on Players to permanently highlight them and track them via the minimap

Individual groups can be highlighted on the map by clicking on that group number in the PartySpotter Map Key (Map Legend).

Chat messages can be prefixed with the number of the Raid Group a player is in, and/or they can be coloured based on the Raid group the player is in if viewing Coloured Raid group dots.

Can also highlight Friends or Ignores or Guild Mates in the Raid. Key binding or WorldMap Button can be used to cycle through the different highlighting modes.

Use a key binding or <Control>-Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter button to show/hide Map Keys.

Can also track the Raid Leader via slash command

USE "/pspot" FOR A STATUS REPORT AND A FULL LIST OF SLASH COMMANDS.



IMPORTANT KEY BINDINGS INTENDED AS THE MAIN / EASIEST WAY TO CHANGE PARTYSPOTTER BEHAVIOUR
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- Key binding to highlight your Party members only so you can check where they are
Press again to go back to the viewing mode you were using previously

- Key binding to cycle through the main PartySpotter modes
1.) Show Numbered Raid sub-groups coloured by Character Class
2.) Show Differently Coloured Raid sub-groups
3.) Show Numbered Raid sub-groups
4.) Show Player dots Coloured based on Character Class
5.) Show All Other Raid sub-groups in the same colour
NOTE: Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter Button to cycle through the above viewing modes


- Key binding to cycle through the PartySpotter highlighting functions
1.) Friends
2.) Ignores
3.) Guild mates
4.) No Highlighting
NOTE: Right-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter Button to cycle through the highlighting modes


- Key binding to Show/Hide the Map Keys
NOTE: <Control>-Left-Click on the WorldMap PartySpotter Button to Show/Hide the Map Keys



Slash Commands
--------------

/pspot : Displays the status of PartySpotter, and this list of Commands

/pspot 0 : Disable PartySpotter (i.e. /pspot followed by a zero)

/pspot <1 - 10> : Enable PartySpotter and set the delay between WorldMap Updates in seconds.
Default value at install is 10.
PartySpotter is now mainly event driven, so I'd suggest "/pspot 10" is the best way to enable PartySpotter if previously disabled.
(It is possible to use a decimal point and set this vaue to 0.5, or 3.6 for example)

/pspot showgroups combined : If in a Raid, then player dots will show the Raid Group number they belong to, AND the dots will be coloured based on the character's Class

/pspot showgroups icons : If in a Raid, then people in different sub-groups will be represented by different coloured icons

/pspot showgroups numbers : If in a Raid, then people in different sub-groups will be represented by icons clearly marked with their group number

/pspot showgroups off : If in a Raid, then people in different sub-groups will be represented by the same Orange icon. Your local Party/group members are still highlighted differently as Blue

/pspot showclasses : If in a Raid, then Player dots will be coloured based on their Character Class as per the colours in the Blizzard Raid Frame

/pspot showfriends : to TOGGLE the highlighting of Friends

/pspot showignores : to TOGGLE the highlighting of Ignores

/pspot showguild : to TOGGLE the highlighting of Guild mates

/pspot -l : to TOGGLE the highlighting of your Raid leader (Marked by a Red "1")

/pspot -t <name> : will highlight the specified individual(s), so that you don't have to mouse over lots of icons to find one single person (Marked by a red "X")
Right-Click Menu option when clicking on a Party/Raid Portrait or Chat frame Name to Highlight a player will also do the same thing.
Highlighted Players will be tracked in the Minimap
The slash command has been extended and can accept multiple names separated by a comma and/or spaces)
To remove an individual player's highlighting, simply highlight them again to toggle them off.
To clear the entire list, use the "/pspot -t" slash command with no name parameter.

/pspot -t : leaving the name blank, will cancel the highlighting of any highlighted player(s)

/pspot -c : to TOGGLE coloured BattleGround/Raid messages when showing different coloured map icons

/pspot -n : to TOGGLE Raid Group Numbered Chat Messages

/pspot -s < 8 - 36 > : to adjust the size of the PartySpotter Icons (Default 18)

/pspot reset : reset all defaults, and anchor the map keys to the default map positions

BFC Map support?

I use Battlefield Commander (yes, that old thing!) because the minimap is 1000% better than blizzard's standard one. Is there a chance that partyspotter might be adjusted to cater for this map? I love both mods and will continue as-is regardless Thanks for all your hard work it is appreciated.

Sorry for not monitoring comments more closely... ;)

@JokerGermany
I'm considering another release that will have a gui for the options

BUT PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T FORGET THE KEY BINDINGS - They are the best, easiest and quickest way to change PartySpotter highlighting modes


@svartalfimposter
Sorry, no plans for that atm. PartySpotter works with AlphaMap and the latest release of AlphaMap has trimmed 'minimap' style BattleGround maps which the user can re-size. AlphaMap also has extra BattleGround features like symbols to indicate Flag carriers in Warsong with the name of the flag carriers - clicking on the symbols '/target's the player.
In Arathi Basin, AlphaMap will report the number of bases required to win to the chat frame (if you have Scrolling Combat Text installed, you will see these messages in the center of the screen).
AlphaMap also has a right click menu for BattleGround icons, so that you can report that "Flag Carrier Our Tunnel" in Warsong, or "Zerg Inc Frostwolf Tower" in AV, etc. etc. These messages will be reported to your Raid if in a Raid, or Party if just in a Party, or to the General chat otherwise. (There is an option to send these messages only to your Party if you don't want to send to the entire Raid that you are in)

MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR RELEASE

Lots of improvements of existing functionality, plus lots of new extra features.

The new feature I use most is the ability to click on player icons on any of the maps to target a player.

Plus you can now track an individually highlighted player via a new minimap tracking icon (which can also be clicked to target the player)

Plus, someone wanted the ability to show/hide the Keys - Keybinding provided...

Plus, lots more...

Didn't think it was important enough to have a GUI interface - Key bindings are easiest way to change modes anyway, and there is now an extra option in the Player right click menu to 'Highlight' an individual player on the map and minimap. So, sorry, but I'm gonna spend my time on other projects rather than adding a GUI to this for the time being.
Just type "/pspot" and PartySpotter will report the current status of settings as well as list the other slash command options.

Thanks for this great mod Telic

One small thing I want to gripe about is your zip files.. could you just zip the addon itself? (PartySpotter/*), as basically every other addon works this way =/

But it's a small gripe that definitely won't prevent me from using the addon

PartySpotter v3.20.20003

Changes in v3.30.20003 from v3.20.20000
---------------------------------------

- toc update

- new Display mode allows Player Dots to be coloured based on their Character class - as per the standard Class colours used by the Raid frame
You must be in a Raid to see Class colours, and your Party is not highlighted when using this mode.
You will see this mode available when you use the Key Binding to cycle through the available Main viewing modes
NOTE: Please remember that Key Bindings are the MAIN INTENDED way of using PartySpotter (there are also Slash commands as detailed in the Readme.txt file).
Or use the new /pspot showclasses slash command
The Map Keys are not visible when displaying Unit class colours.

- added extra details to the Tooltips to indicate when Players are Dead or in Combat or Offline
Dead Player names in the Tooltip are followed by (x)
Players in combat are followed by (*)
Offline Players are followed by (v)
The following limitations apply :
Dead Players are only marked as dead if they have not yet Released their Corpse. i.e. Players awaiting resurrection at a GY in BGs are not reported as Dead by the Blizzard API
Only Players in range can have their combat status reported properly - so people who are a long way off will always appear out of combat. I will investigate further but it seems to be a limitation of Blizzards API.
The above limitations are why I haven't implemented different Icons on the map, and have limited the information to tooltips for the time being.

- small changes to ensure that Flag Carriers are ALWAYS visible above Player Dots

- changed the Chat Frame hooks to solve problems with Pet Bars and handling when pets are summoned while in combat

- put the Right-Click menu Player highlighting option back in

- Blizzard Patch 2.03 promised it would fix any remaining Blocked Action issues

hide map key via slash command?

Hiding the key via a keybinding is handy, but is there any chance of adding /pspot showkey on|off ?

Great mod - keep up the good work

Ooops

Sorry, I just don't check the comments on this web site that often, so I packaged this release before I saw your request Immoliate.

Any specific reason for the command line option ?

You can toggle the keys with the following :

"/script PartySpotter_ToggleKey();"

v4.00.20003

Changes in v4.00.20003 from v3.35.20003
---------------------------------------

- new Combined Information mode showing Raid Group numbers and Class Colours (New default mode)
As with other modes use the Key binding to toggle through the viewing modes
or Right-Click on the new WorldMap Button
or use the following slash command
/pspot showgroups combined
You can still Highlight individuals Groups and other Group icons will revert to basic yellow dots
You can still Highlight individual players, the Raid Leader, or Friends/Ignores/Guild Mates
All the previous viewing modes are still available

- new WorldMap button labelled PartySpotter in top left of title bar.
Basically this is for people who don't alter the WorldMap, and for whom the Key-bindings don't work while the map is open :
Left-Click : Cycles through the main viewing Modes
Right-Click : Cycles through the main Highlight
<Ctrl>-Left-Click : Toggle the PartySpotter Map Key

- Player dots will now have a flashing halo when their Status changes based on the following rules :
Black - Dead and NOT Released Corpse
Grey - Ghost after Releasing Corpse
Red - In Combat
Pink - AFK
(The dots of Offline players should completely blink off and on)

- PartySpotter MapKey now always available when in a Raid and one of the compatible maps is open(WorldMap, AlphaMap, BFM)
So even when just viewing dots coloured by character class, you can highlight specific groups on the map by clicking on a Map Key button

- improved the tooltip responsiveness, as previous performance improvements gave no significant gain

- Raid tooltips now enhanced further to show more Raid information, including Raid Group, Level, Class, and status

- the Raid Group number for players in your local raid group are coloured as per the colour specified in the Map Key

- the tooltip name for players who have not released their Corpse is postfixed with (X)

- the tooltip name for players who have released their Corpse and are Ghosts is postfixed with (G)

- the player icons are now slightly larger and clearer than before

- cleaned up the localisation data.
Some phrases still need French/German localistaion - all help welcomed
