oUF PowerSpark  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r76455
by: Snago [More]
This is an addon that adds a power spark to oUF.

The spark behaves differently depending if you're a mana or energy user.

For energy users it will indicate when the next normal energy tick is going to happen. It needs one tick to sync before it's usable and depending on latency it will only be a rough estimate as the real energy ticks seems to fluctuate ~100 ms every now and again.

For mana users it will start moving from left to right when you cast a spell that cost mana, indicating when you're inside the "5 sec rule" and don't have full mana regen. There's also a setting to show normal mana ticks as well (like the energy ticker) between casts.


Only works for one frame. As long as you want the spark on your player frame load order won't matter but to work on another frame you should OptDep oUF_PowerSpark as on load it only looks for a spark on the player frame.

Here's an example:

Code:
	if unit == "player" then
		-- Power spark!
		local spark = pp:CreateTexture(nil, "OVERLAY")
		spark:SetTexture("Interface\\CastingBar\\UI-CastingBar-Spark")
		spark:SetVertexColor(1, 1, 1, 0.5)
		spark:SetBlendMode("ADD")
		spark:SetHeight(pp:GetHeight()*2)
		spark:SetWidth(pp:GetHeight())
		--  Options and settings
		--spark.rtl = true
		--    Make the spark go from Right To Left instead
		--    Defaults to false
		--spark.manatick = true
		--    Show mana regen ticks outside FSR (like the energy ticker)
		--    Defaults to false
		--spark.highAlpha = 1
		--    What alpha setting to use for the FSR and energy spark
		--    Defaults to spark:GetAlpha()
		--spark.lowAlpha = 0.25
		--    What alpha setting to use for the mana regen ticker
		--    Defaults to highAlpha / 4
		self.Spark = spark
	end
Experiment with Texture, VertexColor, BlendMode, Height and Width to make the spark look like you want!


If you change any settings on the go you need to call

oUF_PowerSpark_ReapplySettings([object])

to make oUF_PowerSpark grab the new settings.
object is the frame to get the spark from. (Defaults to oUF.units["player"])



If you have any suggestions for improvements please post a comment or PM me

I can't get this to work with oUF_Lyn - is this no longer functioning?

Fixed now.
(And I'll actually test myself this time as soon as the servers are up again )

Should be fixed in r76259.

To be honest I've seen it stutter some too. Haven't tried it in any heavy situations (like raids) but essentially it does the same as PitBulls spark (just alot more efficient and it doesn't reset on every energy gain but only the actual regen ticks) so I'm not really sure where the stutter come from.

I have a few ideas on how I could make it more smooth but unfortunately, as I'm busy with other stuff, they will have to wait a week or two. But it won't be forgotten, I promise.

And thanks for the druid testing!

As for druid testing:
  1. It does swap properly between mana and energy tickers.
  2. It does hide in Bear Form.
  3. My druid isn't Balance, so I can't test Moonkin Form.

Done. The energy spark will now only show when you are in combat or have less than full energy or have an attackable target.

otherwise, hanks for the function itself, as i said, love it =)

wtb druid testing

If you're using this and have a druid could you please tell me if its working as intended?
  1. Is it swapping properly between mana FSR/ticker and energy ticker when switching to/from Cat form?
  2. Is it hiding in Bear form?
  3. Is the FSR spark showing properly from the swap to Moonkin form?
