Periscope
Version: 0.501
by: Xolan [More]
Rewrite/update cancelled, due to lack of time and energy.
I really don't see a need for the mod anymore.


Previously known as Xolpass and Xolan's Compass Bar (fan update by Jaim Sandar). Periscope is built upon the latter.

Periscope is mod that allows you to navigate with the use of a periscope. It displays directions, pings, corpse and custom destinations. Future version will include support for other map-mods, for example adding TomTom waypoints to the mod.

Commands:


* /ps - Displays the help
* /ps toggle - Toggles the options window
* /ps xx,yy - Displays a custom destination on the compass
* /ps clear - Clears your custom destination
* /periscope - Alternative to /ps
* /xp - Alternative to /ps, I left it in for ease of transition

Not localized, but should work nevertheless on any client.

Thank you Jaim Sandar for keeping the mod going while I was gone!

Expect at least the following for the rewrite:
Options integrated into Blizzard's Interface Options - Addons panel.
Carbonite support.
Localization.
Changelog Periscope
--v0501--
Removed coordinates from ping output.
Redid ChangeLog.txt formatting.

--v0500--

Changed the name to Periscope as it describes the mod better.

Went through the source code to properly unify the mod as Periscope.

Reverted the version number as I never intended Xolpass v042 to be seen as a complete mod, but rather a work in progress.

Added a display of your corpse.

Added chat output for pings.

Slash commands are now /periscope and /ps. I left in /xp for this version though to ease the transition. It will be gone later.

Hi again Jaim. I've got to admit that I'm currently rehooked on the game, so development is slow

Hang in there though. As soon as I'm free from my work, school, and raiding obligations I'll be finishing up a beta at least

(not giving a timeframe though as I'm not that great of holding them)

Um yeah that's weird :P I'll have a look at that.
EDIT: I've removed coordinates from the ping output as it's not really needed. I've also decided not to give scaling any effort untill the rewrite, which I will start working on once/if I get the/a WotLK beta key. If that doesn't happen I'll be starting the rewrite in a month or so. I've just started a in new job so I'm very busy at the moment.

Right, I'll see what I can do tomorrow about that. The way this mod's written isn't very pretty so adding such a feature will break another with about 90% certainty...

As I said though, I'll give it a go tomorrow, and if I find it impossible, I will keep it in mind for the rewrite so it at least will be a part of that.

Thank you for your quick response.

Yes, I'd like to keep the entire 360 degrees of view showing, currently max width, but be able to make the actual display narrower. So yes, it would be making the direction letters closer together visually.

From

W........N...|....E........S

to

W....N.|..E....S


So to speak.

Same output and info, just less screen real estate.


Again, thanks for working on this mod, and for answering questions.

Thanks again for the update and your time.
With the current code, I don't think I'll be able to do that without extreme changes. I will however keep it in mind for the rewrite (which I'm writing alongside this version). I'm updating and experimenting on this mod, while writing a cleaner, and better performing mod which I will release when I feel it's ready.

Let me see if I got it right though. Currently you can change the width of the bar, but not it's contents. What you'd like is to expand/narrow in the distance between the directions correct? As for scaling the whole frame, I will not implement that as it will definately ruin the look of the mod, but again, I'll keep it in mind for the rewrite.

Slightly updated.
Added corpse locator and renamed the mod to Periscope. Full changelog can be found under the appropriate tab. Feature requests are still very welcome.

It looks like everything is still working. I'll post an update soon to the TOC for 2.4

Edit: Oh, yeah, I did.
