Dragon Tracker
Version: 2.2.1
by: bulton-fr [More]

Status tracking for Elsweyr Dragons.

I was inspired by the addon World Event Alert (aka Dragon Alert) created by Enodoc.

Dependency :
Features :
  • Display the current status of all Elsweyr Dragon if you are in the Elsweyr zone.
  • Display the dragon's color
  • Display a timer to know since how long a dragon has a status.
  • Know when the dragon will repop, and display it instead of "killed since"
  • You can switch between location name and cardinal point (see FAQ)

FAQ :

Why the timer is not displayed ?
If you just arrived in the zone, the timer will not be displayed. You need to assist to a change of status to have the timer.

Why the addon display "killed since..." instead of "repop in..." ?
You need to assist to a kill - repop of one dragon to know the current dragon's repop time.

How to display location name ?
You can use the slash command "/dragontrackerlabeltype" to do that.
"/dragontrackerlabeltype name" will display location name
"/dragontrackerlabeltype point" will display cardinal point

Why location name is not displayed at Southern Elsweyr ?
Because I not have it for the moment (I don't want spoil me the main quest on the PTS). Location name for Southern Elsweyr will be added in few days


If you want other features, you can ask in comment.

Supported languages are English, French and German (thanks to TNTKokser and Asurason).
I will look to ask if someone wants to help to translate for other languages. If you want to help, you can contact me.
v2.2.1
- Add a check on the saved value for labelFormat before to use it
- The call to GUI:changeLabelType which move position of status label is moved on event fired when all dragon are created instead of when a dragon is created (so called for each dragons).
- Interface : Increase the controller size, and update the default offsetX for status labels

v2.2.0
- Update the TESO ApiVersion to 100029
- Interface : Split row label into two label (one for coordinate, one for the status)
- Interface : Add dragon color
- Add slash command to display location name instead of cardinal point

v2.1.1
- Add German language (thanks to TNTKokser and Asurason)

v2.1.0
- Remove included libs (all tags are present, so it's not necessary to include them)

v2.0.0
- Rework code to split systems and use OOP style
- Move some files to the library LibDragonWorldEvent and use the library
- Add South Elsweyr
- Can display "repop in..." instead of "killed since..."
- Display flying status

v1.3.0
- Add localization (en & fr) and use it
- Use "string.format" to concat strings instead of ".." to use C backend (as the wiki says)
- Split function which display text in GUI into many functions

v1.2.1
- Fix : it's not because all the dragons are killed that we are not on a dragon map

v1.2.0
- Some files moved, function renamed or splited

But the text dont overlap anymore and as you will probably notice, the little square have also some difficulty to show full size (one of the reason i tried to re-size it on one of my old pictures)



Between your 2 versions there is 3 lignes which have this little difference, could this be the space missing ?
Code:
ZO_CreateStringId("SI_DRAGON_TRACKER_GUI_REPOP",  ": Repop in ~%d %s")
ZO_CreateStringId("SI_DRAGON_TRACKER_GUI_REPOP",  "%s : Repop in ~%d %s")
In fact, there are other change since v2.2.0. Before I used 1 label per line to display all info. Now I use 2 labels per line; the first for the location name, and the second for the status.
With this change, I can be sure to align all dragons info, to not create a fake alignment with spaces like before. So I also made the changes you see in translation files.

I do not reproduce your issue, so to find a way to reproduce, I have questions for you.
Do you use an addon to change the font ? I see with the L letter that the font seem to be different. Or maybe a change you made ?
Maybe something else that I think, did you have enabled the custom scale ? (just an idea)

About the square, I see that a border is missing, a change in next patch will decreased the size from 15 to 12. I hope it will be enouth.
In fact yes for eyes i needed to change the in game font. The font ZOS use and thus some addons, make my eyes see double. So i use Ubuntu Light without any style (no bold nothing) and i use the old addon for that called Pawksickles.

And of course .... yes i need the custome scale.

So if the result is caused by me no worry i can use the first version without any problem. In fact myself i prefer the first version, without the square.

So as it is working really well for me, all is good.

But check the comment because someone else had the same problem as me, so ask him the same questions in case

Thank you for trying

Thank you
I'm really sorry, I made a fix after your comment and forgot to post it
The fix is now released, I did not reproduce your issue. So I hope that it will fix that, but come back to me if the problem persists

For color squares, like FWSWBN sait it, it's the dragon color.
Red and grey for fire dragons (dragons which was in Northen Elsweyr before dragonhold)
White for ice dragon
Black for storm dragon
Transparent if no dragon, or if the color is not detected.

It's now implemented. By default cardinal point is displayed, and you can change that with a slash command. I explain it in addon's description
About Southern Elsweyr location name, I do not have it for the moment so I will update the addon in few days to add it.

Thank you very much for the translation, a new version has just been uploaded (2.1.1) which includes this translation

Thank you
About used name, I asked myself the question at the beginning because the WorldEventAlert addon use original name, but I have choose to display cardinal points because each time I can't remember where such a name is on the map So I had prefered to use cardinal points.
But yes, I can use the original name. So I will add original name and also add a setting to choose the value to use.
I think that's the best way. I will try to do it in the next few days

I notice a lot of spamming to the chat like
Code:
%s%s: "%s"
EDIT:
sorry, forget this, must be another AddOn I've just updated or installed

And really sorry to answer that now. I didn't even see the time pass during last weeks.

For the moment I can't add that, sorry.
It's because I currently don't know how fight system works from addon and how to know if the game considers that the player participated to the fight or not.
If I have time (probably), I will look to know how this is work
But if I implement that (I will warn you), I probably do another addon because DragonTracker just track dragon status, and not interaction with us

About german translation. I received a translation for the lib (LibDragonWorldEvent) today, but not for DragonTracker. So if you want
