SimpleDruidBar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 8.0.0
by: Saeris [More]
This Druid-only addon creates a mobile bar which displays the Druid's mana while in forms
which would normally be unable to view it (bear and cat). This is the exact value, not an
approximation. You can drag the bar around, and you can configure the size and opacity
of the bar, and the display style and font of its text, with the various "/sdb" slash commands.
Note that due to technical limitations, the mana bar cannot update constantly like the
default UI's player frame mana bar does; it is limited to one update every two seconds.

For more information, including version history, support information, and other such details, view the
addon's home page here.
However, please download from WoW-Interface if possible, to save my limited bandwidth.

4.0 doesn't work on Live servers, the manaregen hook it employs hasn't ben implimented yet. 3.1.1 doesn't work on Live servers, it's flagged as Incompatible and won't load no matter what.

Any chance of a version that works on Live servers?

Just uploaded a fixed version. The GetManaRegen function has indeed been removed on the live patch, but ought to be back when the expansion is released.

As the name implies, this version is much simpler, and as a result is more efficient. The original is about 120KB large, while this version is roughly 28KB. This is due to it having all manner of extra features (such as custom bar graphics and color, special keybindings to switch forms, automatic chat messages when shifting, and a GUI configuration frame), all of which are nice, but not necessary. It also uses some outdated detections for, and calculations of, mana regeneration, resulting in accuracy falling below 95% if you spend a long time in a form. This version was written with utmost accuracy and efficiency in mind, and although it is not yet possible for any addon to approximate your mana with >99% accuracy, this can come pretty close over any duration. In the expansion, it will be possible to garner 100% accuracy at all times, and I already have the code to do so written.

Anyway, I mostly just wrote this addon for myself, and uploaded it in case anyone else wanted a more compactly designed edition of the DruidBar concept.

love this mod, I'm a minimalist and keeping things simple fit me very well , if your bored you might wanna ace2 it, as you can use the surface library to skin the frame without adding any complexity to the code . Not really needed though

Brilliant. Simply (no pun intended) brilliant!

You have done a wonderful job on the implementation of this. It's so very simple to use, and gives us everything we need from the addon, without all the bloated frizzy fluff!

Thank you for this. Just wanted to stop by and say that.

I like the look of this and would love to get rid of druid bar but i dont actually use the bar itself since its integrated in my hud, does your addon have a compate mode with druidbar variables so i could use it with my hud?

edit: err nvm i think i found the variables, but i think they are local. I guess its time to tinker :P
edit2: gah servers are down so i cant test it *cries*

Easy to understand - Thanks!

Thank you for writing an Overview and details for this mod in clear English. I find many mods have no easily decipherable description, but you made an effort to consider this.

X-perl

Is there a hope that this can be used with x-perl? I'm not sure of that but almost every unit-frames is incompatible with this.
Thank you.

I downloaded and installed "SimpleDruidBar_711a".

I am able to use /sdb in game.

Now how do I get it to show up?

It says it always loads, alpha is 1... what else do I need to do to get this to work?

Are there any dependancies that I am not aware and is not listed in the "SimpleDruidBar_ReadMe.txt"?
