cTrackingReminder

Version: 1.4
by: Chimaine [More]

cTrackingReminder is a very small Stand-Alone Addon for Hunters with the talent "Improved Tracking" and for people who forget to turn on their Find Herbs/Minerals tracking

For Hunters:
Whenever your target doesn't match your tracking type, it displays an icon that you can click on to switch your tracking.
Or you can turn on auto switching of your trackings and let the addon do this for you!

For everyone else:
If you are out of combat and don't have Find Herbs/Minerals on, it displays an icon that you can click on to activate it.
This feature is turned off by default, you have to turn it on in the config file.


The configuration is found in the config.lua.

If you don't like the border, you can simply replace it by overwriting the file in the folder and/or editing the cTrackingReminder.lua


Also have a look on my other projects...
cAspectOfTheViper cAutoConfirmLoot cRange cRefillAmmo


I'm from germany, so please don't mind my mistakes

1.4
- exportet the configuration in a seperate file: config.lua
- removed slash commands
- removed macro function (you can still use /script cTR:CheckTargetType() if you want)
- added out of combat support for Find Minerals/Herbs. Default: off.
(Hardcoded, since my hunter is neither a miner nor a herbalist)

1.3:
- added slash commands
- removed some unessasary code...

1.2:
- Added a function for macros or other AddOns to set your tracking to your targets type.
- Added an option for auto switch of your trackings. Default: Turned off. (This feature is naturally limited, since Trackings are on GlobalCooldown)
- Made the config values accessible through script commands for temporary changes.

1.1:
- Rewrote some code and as a result also fixed the bug with target types that you can't track, like non-combat Pets or "not specified"

OOC screwiness

config:
autoTracking = true
onlyCombat = true
onlyHostile = true
profession = true

When I am out of combat and target a mob, the tracking changes from my profession tracking to the class of the mob I'm targeting. However, when I change to a 2nd target faster than the tracking global cooldown, then I get stuck with my profession tracking until I untarget and retarget that mob.

Is there a way to make it not change to my profession tracking when I change from one mob to another mob while not in combat?

great mod!

But it the meantime before blizz updates the talent, this is an awesome addon. Go figure I get 80 lvls in before I discover it, but thanks for this awesome addon. Its freed up alot of space on my crowded screen and made life a bit easier.

Good news, Improved Trackings will add 5% damage to all creature types you can track, if one tracking is enabled (it doesn't matter wich).

Simply said: This AddOn will be Obsolete with the next hunter changes.

Professions should be working with v1.4

Okay, if it is really that bothersome, then I'll implement that feature.
I'm currently in my exam period, but I'll have some free time at the weekend...

Happy that you like it

There is an option in the .lua file for that. Go into the addon's folder, open the lua file and change line 16 from cTR.onlyCombat = true to cTR.onlyCombat = false. Then it reminds you also ooc.

Yeah, found that out today too.
Fixed in the next build.

Need more feedback about the default icon size.
For me, it's just perfect

Great idea, but the icon should probably be a little smaller by default. It also shows up as just an empty box with an outline when you are targeting something that you can't track, such as training dummies.
