Note: I'm working on a new version... well, it's pretty much a new mod. It fixes the few minor flaws with this mod, and will be very customizable (and still very tiny). It'll be a lot like other ability tracking mods, except it won't have timer bars. I hate timer bars. Icons are much nicer I think. So keep a look out for that.
1.0.1 isn't intended to be a preview of the new version I'm working on... the new version has been delayed but I still hope to release it. This new update is intended to address a few efficiency flaws with the original version. I didn't test if it works, so let me know if errors occur! Hopefully releasing this new version will motivate me to get the new mod out, as I have most of the work completed... just need to fix up a few things.
I never really planned to release this mod as I didn't want to bother putting in too much time for user-friendliness and requests. However, I figure it's a pretty useful mod that casters would be interested in. Also, it's small! It should be much more efficient than most other ability tracking mods.
Basically, what it does is this: It puts a nice visual on the screen indicating the cooldown of enemy silence abilities so you can anticipate when the next one is going to come or to have a better indication of when they are used. As of now it only tracks kick, pummel, counterspell, and spell lock as I'm primarily concerned with those spells that cause spell school lockout (*shakes fist*).
It's actually not too difficult at all to add spells if you wanted (and it doesn't have to be for silences), but if you wanted to do that you're going to have to do it manually. If you know a little bit of programming for WoW, you can take a look in SilenceCD.lua and near the top is a table with the list of spells (spell ID's - find them using wowhead) and their respective cooldown. I'm not really going to go into much more detail here unless you request it of me :P
It only monitors hostile targets. Additionally, it will only monitor your target when you're not in an arena, and will monitor all enemies when you are in an arena.
There are some basic options (moving and setting the grow direction [when there is more than one silence to track]) that you can change by using the slash command "/scd". In the near future I plan to add an option for size scaling... but that time is not now.
