What is it?
A fairly simple but very configurable mod that adds damage, heals, and events (dodge, parry, windfury, etc...) as scrolling text above you character model, much like what already happens above your target. This makes it so you do not have to watch (or use) your regular combat chat window and gives it a "Final Fantasy" feel.
Where did it come from?
The idea and base code came from the healthbar mod. I liked that mod a lot, but it really didn't do all that I wanted. So I decided to use it as a base to create my own mod purely as a learning experience. I've continued to work on it and think its now stands on its own merits, with almost none of the original code still intact.
What's it look like?
