Speedway
Version: 0.2
by: Shirik [More]
Speedway v0.2

Have you ever been incredibly bored while in World of Warcraft, trying to decide what to do, only to find you've done 5 laps around Dalaran subconsciously while talking to random people? I know I do that a lot. So, one day, after I had made about 10 laps myself, I decided that a good waste of my time would be to write an addon that secretly tracks your laps around Dalaran (or, soon, other circular cities) and reports totals on demand.

This addon has no GUI, intentionally. It is designed such that it tracks your laps behind-the-scene without you realizing it. Only when you realize that you're actually doing laps, then you can ask it to report your total laps and see just how much time you've wasted.


Commands:
  • /speedway Reports all lap totals (currently only Dalaran is supported)
  • /speedway reset Resets all lap totals
  • /speedway <city> Displays the selected city's total (currently only Dalaran is supported)

If anyone has any suggestions on new tracks (other than Ironforge and Shattrath, which I intend to implement), please feel free to request it in comments.

Enjoy!
v0.2 - Updated to latest version of Astrolabe for 3.1 compliance
v0.1 - Initial release

Orgrimmar is a pretty much circular city as well. as in undercity. Both would be great additions.

I've done about 5 laps of UC at times when I;m either bored or looking for something. I don't usually ask the guards unless I can't find it on my own :P

You packed the file wrong. Put all the files in a folder named Speedway and zip THAT.

This requires walks between AH and Bank in IF, because that's what you run when bored as Alliance in IF.

lmao stormwind, IF, and exodar (Darnassus maybe...not sure) Don't forget us lil alli guys & gals lmao ^^

Shatt's another good one, as it's pretty circular too. ^_^

This looks funny as heck, I can't wait to give it a go ^^

and yeah, it'd be funnier then heck for there to be a chat channel config (of some sort) so that if you and friends/guildies are using it, it'll report to that channel...could be really fun (and make for some interesting events ^^)

The COPYING file is a standard file for the GNU General Public License (GPL) under which this addon is released. Open it in a text editor if you'd like.

s, Fonjask

PS: Why is there a file named 'COPYING' in the .zip?

best addon since 1990. just need to report in /1 and maybe sync with other ppl using this addon, letting me know who is running in circle and how many times did it.

...lol

I wish I had thought of this years ago. I would love to know how many laps of IF I did before outlands opened.

For a suggestion, Undercity? It's really circular.
