FuBar - RecZone  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.20301
by: wmrojer [More]
New beta version available at http://files.wowace.com/FuBar_RecZone/

Shows information about your current zone and recommends zones and instances based upon your level and faction.

In the bar it can show zone name, sub zone name, coordinate and it will always show a color coded zone range for your current zone. Zone name is color coded based on zone faction, Green=Friendly, Orange=Contested, Red=Enemy. Level range is color coded based on difficulty. Grey=To low, Green=Easy, Yellow=Good, Orange=Hard, Red=You got a death wish?.

The tooltip will give info about your current zone and any instances in that zone. It will also show you a list of recommended zones and a list of recommended instances. By left clicking on a recommended zone or instance you will be shown the walk path to that zone, a list of zones you will need to go through to get there if you are going to walk. (For when you have to walk. ie the first time.)

On the worldmap it displays zone level and instances for zones when you hover the mouse over them. It also displays coordinates for your current location and the cursor location.

Shift-click to insert location in to chat edit box.
Double-click to open worldmap.

This addon now has all the functionality of FuBar - LocationFu as requested.

You can configure what type of information you want to see.
  • Faction
  • Continent
  • Coordinate
  • Instances
  • Battlegrounds
  • Raid instances

You can also configure it to recommend lower and higher level zone, up to 10 levels lower and higher.

The addon is written for FuBar 2.0 with Ace2.

Installation:

Just unpack in your Interface/AddOns/ folder. No dependancies, all required libraries are embeded.

Add fractional coordinates?

Unfortunately, this nice fubar addon looks like it's been abandoned.

Is there any chance fractional coordinates (like 32.5, 56.3) could be supported?

When the game loads and I log into the character, the Recommended Zone always shows this line:

FuBar - Recommended Zone: Unknown zone detected "%d"

twice. Works fine for the rest.

@ wmrojer

With your version and 20811 I get capitals the message in the Chat (see screen further below), in addition am located in the info box garbage (instead of Eisenschmiede - Großes Meer).

With the 3 small changes of Inyu the box is correct, but I get the message now in each region in the Chat (however without area indicated)

20811 isn't my release. It's done by Elkano, and it's just a fix for an Instance that I had in the wrong place.

string.find problem

Hello all,
I think I found the problem with the french and german client. Some zone name have been translated, but with the original name inside parenthesis at the end like "Forgefeu (Ironforge)". This generate a problem with all the string.find calls which take the parenthesis as a capture pattern. I added ",1, true" for each string.find call and it seems to be ok.

1066: if (string.find(self.vars.zoneName, zone.name, 1, true)) then
1327: if string.find(z.name,zone.name, 1, true) and z.faction==zone.faction then
1376: if (string.find(WorldMapFrame.areaName, zone.name, 1, true)) then

hope this helps,
Inyu.

I have a small problem with this otherwise very nice addon. Once in a while, the coordinates in the label disappear for no apparent reason. I can get them back by de-selecting zone name, sub zone name and coordinates and then re-selecting them but it's a little annoying to have to.

I think the updated deDE zones haven't made it into Babble-2.2, yet. So this is most likely causing this message.

BTW: It seems like UnitFactionGroup-API has changed and is now returning two values, the english and the loacalized group name. Thus on deDE all players will be threated as being Horde (or mor precise not Alliance)

in addition, with the new version I get still the message, can because of a library be, because the coordinates are also only sporadically indicated
