QuestMods by Yarko
------------------
PartyQuests light. I wrote this when I realized that Cosmos PartyQuests was not reliable and very heavy. People liked it so now it's here!

NOTE: The party parts of the addon are no longer functional, and, at this time, I have no plans to get them working again. If I have the desire and the time in the future, I might get to them. So, this is QuestMods light.

Basic functionality
-------------------
- Shows quest levels in the quest log (of course) and also in the watch frame and map. This feature can be shut off in interface options.

- Shows a clear message on the screen when objectives for a quest are complete. Can be configured to play a sound as well (defaulted on).

- Configuration option allows user to send quest objective progress updates to the chat window for easy review.

- Configuration option allows quest objective progress and completion to be reported to party through chat.

- A button and message appear to the right of the center of the screen when the player receives an item that starts a quest. A sound can play as well if configured to do so (defaulted on). Left clicking the button will open the player's bags. Right clicking will simply hide the button. The button disappears when clicked or when all quests have been activated from the items. Can be configured to display button upon login when user has unactivated quest starter items in bags. Button can be moved by holding down shift, left clicking on the button and dragging with the mouse. A configuration button has been made available in configuration options to make the quest starter alert button visible for moving if it is not visible.

- Keeps track of which quest headers were collapsed and which quests were being tracked for each character through logout and login.

- Player can use ctrl+click in the quest log to drop a quest. Doing so will prompt the user with a confirmation dialog. If shift+ctrl+click is used, the confirmation dialog will not appear allowing for quick dropping of multiple quests.

Configuration
------------
Use the QuestMods options panel to configure the add-on by opening the main menu, clicking the Interface button, clicking the Addons tab, and selecting the QuestMods entry.

Glad to see you're back. Always liked your mods and was sad when I had to find replacements for a few of them.

Hey all. Even though this addon didn't have many users, here is an update for 5.2. It is very limited due to my lack of ability (no second account to test with) to fix all the party-related stuff at this time. But the stuff in it is stuff that I have really been missing, plus a new feature that I had always wanted to implement, but never got around to. Check out the features list and give it a go if interested. Report any problems you find and any suggestions you have for improvement. I am still working on it so more updates to come.

Great news!!! I really miss the addon so much!!!

OK I can live without the split quest log frame or without viewing the levels of quests next to them (for these features, I have found adequate alternatives; I'm really not that fussed about the split frame anyways, but I do like it if I can get it). I can live without viewing party members' quests since I mostly solo, but like stated above, having said features is an added bonus!

But being a quest junkie of shorts, I absolutely cannot live without being able to see a report of quest progress and/or quest completion to the quest reporting frame. For me this was the sole reason said addon stood out from all the rest and was a must have. I really wonder why on earth Blizzard hasn't implemented such a feature to their default UI for so many years!! I mean seriously Blizzard!!

Anyway, once again I welcome, with open arms I should say, the revival of this addon and keep my fingers crossed we'll get an update soon!

Yarko got burned out on WoW and spent some time in Lotro. Fun game!

I am going to tackle this addon next. Not sure how much of it will be retained, since I no longer have two accounts to test with, but I miss some of the features of this addon, so...

Any .LUA savvy, kind heart that could pick the code up and grace us with a fan update?

Any ETA on a 4.1 update? Questmods is an addon I can't live without (I'm sure others feel the same way) and all other alternatives out there pale in comparison...

Please Yarko, with much sugar on top and a dancing banana

Indeed it is.
But then, it is odd that there are so many things Blizz have not done which leaves things to people like your good self to come up with add ons

@ soxism:

I quest with my dad and it is so much easier to be able to see what quests he has then to get him to tell me over ventrilo.

Great to see this back.
Really missed this aspect "Reports quest objective completion to the quest reporting frame".
Thanks Yarko
