LongPressCtrlToInteract  Updated less than 3 days ago!
Version: 2022.01.18-2
by: Masteroshi430 [More]
Annoyed by Companions, Followers, Seats, Insects, etc interactions at the wrong moment ?

LongPressCtrlToInteract will only allow companion & quest follower (NPCs following you during a quest) interaction if you keep the Ctrl (or Alt/Shift/Cmd) key pressed while using your "Interact with Environment" keybind.

Parts of code were "borrowed" from No Interact by Rhyono and No, thank you! by Garkin, Ayantir and SlippyCheeze.

Note:
The quest follower's name is recorded during the 1st dialogue with him/her/it after him/her/it has acquired his/her/its follower status and the addon starts doing it's magic just after that.
For the companion and the other features, it works instantly.
  • Fully automatic
  • Message in chat to remind you the right keys to press to interact with companion / quest follower if you use use the regular keybind alone on them.


Settings:
  • You can set SHIFT, ALT or CMD instead of the default CTRL as the long press key.
  • Disallow seeing text links and thus interaction with Known books
  • Disallow seeing text links and thus interaction with Insects
  • Disallow seeing text links and thus interaction with Empty containers (which means empty backpacks, barrels, urns, baskets, chests, crates, cupboards, drawers, nightstands, etc links all become non displayed/usable)
  • Disallow seeing text links and thus interaction with Seats
  • Auto summon latest companion after 1st fight without him/her (You have to do a combat with him/her first, then he/she will comeback after next fight after being removed)

Yep, I think, since the assistants are easily accessible/removable from the quickslots menu, that nobody will need the main feature of the addon on them. The feature works for the assistants belonging to the other players in your group though.

I removed the version from the addon name as requested.

Maybe do not change this in the official version but create a beta and link it to the comments for testing
Edit: Oh I think I understood now. It should not have blocked the normal interactable assistants, just the NPCs and companion

Both seem to be interactable without pressing the key now, yes.
Bastian is blocked, seems to work.

Could you please remove this version string from the addon's title in your txt:

The addon name should be kept clean, no author and no version info in there (author is discussable as some addons always start with the authors name or similar ).

I really disturbs the eye, and it disturbs addons like Addon selector which search the addon names as it will find 2022 or . that way.
The version is something you should show in the LAM settings menu (which you already do) or add it to the description text of the txt file as it will be shown in the addon manager's expanded text (Votans AddonList popup of the addon) then.

I only summon the NPcs for bank and vendor as I need them so I do not need to press any extar key for them, only the companion is troubling me as he will be up most of the time.
Thanks for considering this.
Ah it works for bankers & vendors?
I will try to exclude them but I don't have any to test...
I will try to find a way...

edit :
IsInteractingWithMyAssistant() should do the job, I will try to add that condition to exclude them but you'll have to report if it works after the update

edit2: uploaded, tell me if it works

edit3: - It doesn't afftect the other features
- It doesn't work with other group member's assistants because it's IsInteractingWithMyAssistant()
I hope it works for your assistant.

Personally i dont need a thiefing protection because my thiefing tools prevent me from accidental stealing.

It's doable, I will have a look at it tonight...
I assume somebody will then ask to disable thieving with Bastian...(also doable)

just long press = CTRL is set.

thanks for working on this - it's core feature is super helpful!

ps - the addon also blocks little flying bugs (not sure on their name) in addition to torchbugs even when block insects is off.

Omg amazing addon! Thank you!

This is one of those mods that shouldve been in the base game from the start, and definately when comapions were added.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Interaction with empty containers & known books

The point is:
You do not ask, you demand, and you do this by writing walls-of-text about your experience, how software should be coded, what you think it should work/do, etc.
You even answered here and say the features the dev added to his own addon was unnecessary Why do you think it is? Why do you even think this is your decision?
You should finally move on and accept that it is not and it's finally the authors/devs decision and idea how and what his/her addons do or do not.
Thank you.

I can understand that some settings should be added by default to addons, as it helps. Depending on the experience/time of the authors this will be done automatically, or not.
Your question to add this, including an explanation if you feel the need to (e.g. the color blindness topic you have stated) is fully legit.
But you should keep them short, on the topic and not the way you use to write them, with that "add this or your addon is nuts" style
Exclude personal feelings and stay on the topic please.

As you can read by e.g. DohNotAgain's answer (beside other users who already wrote the same to you at other addons), who also recognized your "demand", this is nothing I personally accuse you of. It's just what we notice here, so I have asked you to stop this please.

If you think this was libel (what imho it was not, nor was I meaning to do a libel) then please report my post and let the admins find a conclusion about that topic. I do not pay them, nor do they pay me or we are connected in any other way, they are free in minds and able to take a decision.

Beside that I'm asking you to stop these personal swipes against me.
if you did not take offense so easily at friendly suggestions for improving the usefulness of your own add-ons.
I'm not your friend and your suggestions were neither friendly nor usefull, maybe only for yourself. Accept a no and move on, enjoy the game, thank you.

You did this at my addon, at others (Scootworks e.g.) and now here with this addon again.
If you have found a bug clearly describe it so it can be fixed. If the author says this is no bug but intended: Accept it.

....
Of course, I like the primary feature of this addon, which is using a keybind to control when the character interacts with a companion, a follower, etc. So I want to use it!!!

Unfortunately, the developer goes beyond its useful feature to add a totally unnecessary non-optional suppression of the Interactive Prompt for objects in the game environment, e.g., lootable containers. In my honest opinion and experience, it is not a wise decision -- for the reasons that I discussed.

What is wrong with asking a developer to make a feature configurable? What is wrong with asking a developer to make it possible for a player who is red-green color blind to configure the colors which the add-on uses for a symbol(s) in a data table? In my opinion, such configurability should be routine in all software design and development.

If I did not want to use this or any other particular add-on, then I would not bother to attempt to persuade the developer to make a feature(s) configurable, when I do that for various reasons. I don't do this just to annoy people, which is what you are accusing me of doing. That accusation, my friend, is called libel. Please consider your criticisms more carefully in the future and stick to what you do best -- and to what you could do better, if you did not take offense so easily at friendly suggestions for improving the usefulness of your own add-ons.
