HotCandy  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.7.1
by: Nevcairiel [More]

HotCandy is a Heal-over-Time tracker designed for Druids, but it also supports other healing classes with HoTs, like Renew of Priests, or Riptide of Shamans.

HotCandy was designed to be very simple and easy to use, with only a handful of options to customize the style of the bars. However its core is powerful and supports all known set bonuses and talents that increase the length of your HoTs.

HotCandy is driven by the CombatLog events and the cast events, those two in tandem provide it with all the information it needs to provide proper information about all your active HoTs.

You can access the HotCandy configuration through the Blizzard Interface AddOns Options.

I've been working on a new version of HotCandy that should hopefully fix the positioning problems. It's basically an internal rewrite for better maintenance, using some better logic and more cleanly seperated code, so no new features (yet).

You can grab the test alphas over at wowace: http://www.wowace.com/addons/hotcandy/files/

If everything goes smooth, i'll have a Release Version up here as well in a day or so.

Re: HotCandy Location Problem

Originally posted by FlawZuljin
After living with this for a long time, I decided to look for an update, since there's been no newer version I was able to fix the coordinate problem:

Go into your saved variables folder:

\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\%accountname%\SavedVariables

Find and edit the HotCandy.lua and look for the following:

["position"] = {
["y"] = -90.49635557765282,
["relPoint"] = "TOPLEFT",
["point"] = "TOPLEFT",
["x"] = 1.19427947787449,

I found mine was only off by a bit, so with some trial and error and modifying the coordinates, it worked perfectly for me.

I just saved and reloaded wow each time.
Your solution doesn't really make much sense, sorry.

I have also modify Hotcandy to see my earthsield buff, but I can't see how many stacks there is on the target.

Code:
earthshield = {
			id = 32594,
			duration = 600,
			stackable = true,
		},
Is there any chance to have an option to watch stacks on earthshield in the future.
I don't like to make modifications in the lua code of an addon, and I'm too noob for create my own

If you would like to change the size of the font used on the bars add the following code after line 155:

Code:
self.group:SetFont(nil, 9)
The second parameter in the brackets (9 in the example above) is the font size the bar should use.

Nice addon, but will the bug which makes the bars reset every relog be reset? I've seen a lot of posts, but addon author never answered any of them...

any chance we could get the earthliving HoT on here? (the shaman on that has a chance to be put on from all heals)

edit:did it myself, also added in ancestral fortitdue support. just had to add some code to the spells section
Code:
		earthliving = {
			id = 52000,
			duration = 12,
		},
		ancestralfortitude = {
			id = 16237,
			duration = 15,
		},

you can expand this mod to handle Glyph of Riptide by adding the following block of code to the UpdateBonus() function, in the section marked with the comment -- Glyph Bonnus

Code:
elseif class == "SHAMAN" then
		-- Glyph of Riptide
		if hasGlyph(63273) then
			track.riptide.duration = track.riptide.dura7tion + 6
		end
btw, to the author, i'd like to make a feature request as well... i'd like to see the bars registered as unit_frames so they could be used by Clique to click-cast. thanks.

[e] to clarify, i don't mean for you to turn the current bars into unit frames. the bar functionality is perfect. i would like to see an additional (smallish) unit frame also created and assigned to the player that the HoT is applied to. this would greatly simplify the task of "consuming" riptide with a chain heal at the end of it's life. thanks.

hi, just a quick question/request here. is there an option to sort the bars by player first and by remaining hot-time 2nd? maybe even with some gap between individual players?

Would like to know if there's a fix for the "bar position resetting every time I log" bug.

Wild Growth

Does HotCandy detect Wild Growth? Or, is it possible to detect it?

I don't use any scrolling text, just the default blizzard one, and I seem to be able to see in on myself, but I can't see it on others.

With HotCandy, I don't see the Wild Growth ticking on myself (when I have a buff with swiping count down).

Thanks in advance

Hey, there seems to be an issue with tracking Rejuvenation (Rank 15) with Nature's Splendor. I'm not sure whether it is the talent or the new rank (which is 3 seconds longer than all the other ranks of Rejuvenation), but I assume it is with the skill because Lifebloom and Regrowth are tracked fine with the talent.
