CCWarn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.2
by: Cogwheel [More]
CCWarn - v1.2
By Cogwheel

******************* NOTICE: INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE FROM V1.1.1 ********************
CCWarn now uses macro option syntax to specify the unit to check. If no unit is
specified, it assumes your target. For example:

/ccwarn target Sheeping... you break it, you tank it

should be written as:

/ccwarn Sheeping... you break it, you tank it

For a unit other than target it would look like:

/ccwarn [target=focus] Sheeping... you break it, you tank it
********************************************************************************

CCWarn provides a slash command to help keep party/raid members from breaking
your crowd control. It does so by whispering anyone in your party/raid who is
targeting or whose pet is targeting your target. In practice, this is much more
effective than the common channel announcement macros out there.

Usage: /ccwarn (/ccw) [options] [<spell>] [message]

The bare /ccwarn command will check your target against your party members'
targets, and whisper the following messages: "Change targets!" or "Call off
your pet!" You can add to these by providing an additional message to the slash
command.

Example:
/cast Polymorph
/ccwarn Trying to sheep... You break it, you tank it!
Whispers:
Change targets! Trying to sheep... You break it, you tank it!

or

Call off your pet! Trying to sheep... You break it, you tank it!
The [target=] macro option allows you to specify which unit of yours to check
against your party's targets. Other macro options can be used as shown in
Neuro's guide on the US UI & Macros Forum:
http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/board.html?forumId=11114&sid=1

Example:
/cast [target=focus, harm] Seduction; [harm] Seduction
/ccwarn [target=focus, harm]; [harm]

Since no messages are provided, it will only whisper the default alerts.
If you provide a spell inside brackets (see the third example below), CCWarn
will first make sure that you have enough mana and that your spell is in range,
available, and not on cooldown to prevent chat spamming when you are mashing the
macro.

Example:
/cast Sap
/ccwarn <Sap> target
A few notes:

- You can also call the CCWarn function directly from your Lua scripts via:
CCWarn(unit[, message])
- If the unit you specify does not exist (for example, if you run /ccwarn and
you do not have a target), CCWarn will fail silently. This has the side-effect
that the [exists] conditional is meaningless.
- The spell check will not work for pet abilities like Seduction. This is due to
a fundamental difference between your spells and your pet's. If you attempt to
use one of your pet's abilities, it will move closer to your target if it is
out of range.

Changes:

v1.2
- Added <spell> check
- /ccwarn now accepts macro options and uses them to specify your unit (via
[target=unit]) instead of taking a unit directly - INCOMPATIBLE WITH PREVIOUS
VERSION
- Made localizable

v1.1.1
- Removed debugging message that caused an error for players without CogsBar

v1.1
- Added unit parameter to /ccwarn (/ccw)
- Removed /ccwarnfocus (/ccwf).

v1.0
- Initial Release.

That's the whole point of this addon... See the examples.

I would dearly love to see a version which the user puts in spells to watch for, and automatically go off whenever that spell is cast. This keeps you from having to build a database of every bloody CC spell in the game. The player input basically tells it what spell to look for (such as Polymorph), and when it detects the player casting that spell, it activates and sends the whisper to everyone targeting it. Would also like to see the ability to modify the 'default' message so it is inherent and can go off automatically without needing to worry about extra variables.

It was originally a 'quick and dirty' (or rather, quick and elegant) fix, but they can alwasy be improved upon later when you have more time, eh?
This particular mod is specifically targeted for use in macros. I have had ideas like that, but if anything I'd create a brand new mod to do that. It's not on my TODO list at the moment, though, as I have lots of other mods waiting for my attention (e.g. BuyDropper has been in beta for months now).

They won't listen to my /party or /raid announcements, maybe this will work. Definately worth a try, anyways. No offense intended to your elegant solution, but to the intellect of the guys who are habitual sheep-breakers, which has been compared to that of a turnip (and of course, the general concencus being that the turnip is smarter). The question of literacy in aforementioned sheep-breakers has also been raised. If this works, I'll spread the word from the highest mountain.

You might want to read the docs a bit more thoroughly... Class and spell are completely irrelevant. All the /ccwarn command does is check your target against your party members' targets and whisper them if they're the same.

(of course, there is the spell checking option, but as mentioned, you specify which spell it is, so i don't really see any reason to think it would only work for one class' spells and not another...)

Just curious, will this addon work for druids with their new cyclone spell? If not, would be a good feature to add

The only things you need to be careful about are hitting the button when your target can't be affected by that form of crowd control (trying to shackle an elemental, etc.), and hitting the button when you yourself are incapacitated (stunned, feared etc.).

I just added a feature today so that if you don't have enough mana or your spell is out of range or otherwise unusable it will not send the messages. See the updated documentation and examples above.

Presently, you must macro it. I may make a parallel addon that lets you configure automatic detection of spell casting so you don't need macros, but this addon was specifically designed to be quick 'n dirty.

(well, not dirty... it's actually very simple, clean code )

Oh and, in v1.1 you have to do that as:

/cast Polymorph
/ccw target message
