Event Tracker  Updated less than 3 days ago!
Version: 1.24
by: Kelinmiriel [More]
Helps keep track of Event Tickets so you don't miss any.

****************************************************
*** 1.24 Important update! Mid-Year Mayhem, Jan. 23-Feb. 4! ***
****************************************************

Now with USER INTERFACE!

NOTE: Chat commands have changed! (/evt still works.)

Automatic messages:
- at character sign on
- when a ticket is acquired
- when tickets are spent at the Impresario.
- when tickets become available again after daily reset. (NEW with 1.13)

Commands:
/evt - View ticket information
/evt help - Shows all chat commands (/evt ? also works)

/evt info - View event information
/evt hide - Hide chat messages, except the most important
/evt show - Show all chat messages (reverse /evthide)
/evt ui - Toggles user interface

/evt chat - Posts event info to chat line, to answer other player's questions
- Please be sure you are in the correct chat before doing this!
- You have to press ENTER to send the line.

The User Interface hides during combat.

This addon works for people who play on both NA and EU servers.

To do: Support for other languages, menu options, key binding

I have a feature request. Any chance we could get the option to keybind the chat commands. This way i don't have to use chat to turn its UI on and off.
I haven't forgotten about the keybind; in fact, I've been working on it since you requested it. I just haven't quite figured it out yet. Hopefully soon!

Thank you so much for that comment; it really made my day!

I hadn't even thought of a keybinding. It hadn't occurred to me that anyone might be turning the UI on and off often enough to want one. It turns itself off and on during combat, turns itself off when there's no event, and back on when an event starts - other than that, I figured people would either want it or not.

Thanks for the idea! I started teaching myself Lua to write this, which is why it didn't have a UI to start with. Every time I added a new feature, I decided what I wanted it to do, then learned more of the language to do it. If I get some time in between events and rl stuff, I'll try to check out keybinds.

You're welcome! Thank you for the post! I'd just like to get word of this out there; I feel a lot more people could be helped by it who don't know it exists yet.

I wish there was someplace I could just upload (or access) info about events, so users wouldn't have to download a new version every time there's an event announced to get the info. But that doesn't seem to be in their in-game database anywhere that I can find, unfortunately, so I'll just have to keep on top of their announcements, and hope people check for updates frequently.

Thank you!

(Second event actually - I first published it during Dragonguard, but few people noticed. Third, if you count that I started working on it during Witch's Festival.)

I've still been working on it as much as I safely can since the event ended. Just have to be careful, since I can't test anything that involves getting tickets.

And yeah, I didn't get a lot of New Life boxes this year. Getting back into some programming again has been kind of fun though.

Major changes in Version 1.13

User interface! - which hides itself when in combat.

Chat commands changed/added

/evt - still shows YOUR event tickets
/evt help or /evt ? - shows all chat commands

/evt info - Event Information
/evt chat - Posts Event Info to a chat line, to answer questions from other players

/evt hide - Hides chat messages except the most important
/evt show - Shows all chat messages (default)

/evt ui - Toggle user interface


This covers the most important things I had wanted it to do from the beginning, except perhaps support for other languages. I think I'll take a day or two off before tackling that and just play the game. Enjoy!

Thank you for the info! It appears that they do, and the feedback from you was part of the reason I changed the event info back to say so, or that I even checked that this was fixed.

Feedback is very much appreciated, especially with an addon like this, where it's only possible for me to do very limited testing myself! (I can only get tickets twice per day, once on the NA and once on the EU.)

So delve boss info is fixed now, and hope you like the new UI!

Apologies for problems; new version should fix it

Thank you for the feedback! I'm working on an update and will have it out as soon as I can. The event does not work as ZOS said it would, unfortunately (it gives two tickets for the first New Life quest, not one for each of the first two!)

Also, it's not possible to fully test until an event starts, so I've just been trying to stay on top of it.

Please keep letting me know if you run into anything, so I can get it fixed as quickly as possible, and thank you for using the Event Tracker! It's really nice to have feedback.

The New Life Festival news

So here's what's going on with the New Life Festival, and Version 1.06.

ZOS just announced that in addition to getting one each from the first two New Life quests of the day, we can also get 3 from killing a boss once a day - a world boss, delve boss, dolmen/geyser/dragon, or a final boss in an arena, dungeon, or trial.

I designed Event Tracker to handle the patterns of tickets they've been doing so far: getting two or three at a time once per day (like New Life, Witch's Festival, Anniversary Event, etc.), or getting two separate ones like the recent event (also Thieves/Dark Brotherhood, Wrothgar, Clockwork City, Morrowind, etc.)

I wanted to give you all a message right away that this change was up, and that an update will be required before the event for it to function correctly.

This happened to hit when I'm about to be traveling, so it'll take a little longer than it would otherwise. But I'll get it done before the event. No problem. Back in a few days. Happy New Life!

Final New Life announcement

I hope you like it. I started working on it during the Witch's Festival when I couldn't find one that did what I wanted. I'm an old-school programmer, but I've never worked with Lua before, so it's taken me a while to pick it up.

Enjoy!
