Description
Waypoint 1.5
by Lunarwater

about:

Waypoint is a simple addon to assist in targeting your character in the right direction instead of having to look at the map a ton. It is more of a proof of concept until we get better lua support for location tracking, but is still in a usable state.

KNOWN ISSUES:
  • I'll be the first to warn you that it uses /loc, and therefore you will incur some chattab spam. I would recommend you create a new chat tab vs using general chat so you don't have to see the output of /loc. If this is a problem for you please do not use at this time. I am hoping one day Turbine will release an API method for getting location & direction info and then this will go away.
  • /loc data is different Inside dungeons. Initial
  • My lotro characters is only level 16, so I have not tried this in other regions. If you encounter problems in another region you can assist me by recording /loc values, along with ;loc for that same location and posting below.
  • Attempting to navigate coordinates between regions will not work as expected. They use different coordinate systems, and will result in the arrow pointing in wrong direction. Try to stick to navigating coordinates within the same zone for now.

CHANGELOG:

Version 1.5 :
  • Bug fix submitted regarding improper listing of east and west for french and german versions of the game. (thanks Venogorn!)

Version 1.4:
  • Fixed waypoint to properly determine location with recent changes to game
  • While I'm not sure if it will help, I make the Waypoint work indoors.

Version 1.3 :
  • Changed chat channel parser for changes in RoI Update 6
  • Fixed but when user was facing due north, coordinates would not get parsed. (thanks Garan)
  • Remove extranious output to chat channel by plugin
  • Added plugin manager icon and description

Version 1.2 :
  • changes necessary for it to work in German and French LoTRO client
  • changes necessary for it to work better with LoTRO Compendium
  • small tweak to LPC plugin configuration file that was incorrect

Version 1.1 :
  • Made it so you can click on things that are behind the transparent portions of waypoint.
  • Calculate # of meters vs generic units for distance
  • Save position of waypoint so it remembers where you last placed it on screen.
  • Adding LPC file

Version 1.0 : initial release

INSTALL:
  1. Delete any older Waypoint install from your Plugins folder
    (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\Lunarwater\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\Waypoint)
  2. Copy the entire Waypoint folder into your LOTRO plugins folder
    (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\Lunarwater\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\Waypoint)
  3. Start LOTRO. Once in game type: /plugins load Waypoint

USAGE:

/way help : shows Waypoint help
/way show : shows Waypoint
/way hide : hides Waypoint
/way target <coordinate> : target a coordinate for waypoint
(i.e. /way target 21.4S 45W)


Once a target is set, an arrow will appear on your screen. You will need to click the middle of arrow for it to know where u are at and what direction you are facing. The arrow will then point in a direction like a compass. Simply rotate your character and move in that direction. Periodically you can click arrow again to check your distance from target & check that you are still headed in correct direction.

You can also make a shortcut to periodically do a /loc if you wish to hit
a key to update the waypoint. (i.e. /shortcut <slot #> /loc )

I like it too, but found a small bug.

With German client all Coordinates in the West are translated to O =Osten (German for East). Found the bug in row 248 of Waypoint.lua, you have to translate E to O, not W to O.

By the way: French for East is Est, so you must not translate E to O for the French client (line 250+251), just for the German one.

I hope my fix is correct?:

Code:
function Waypoint:CoordinateToString( coor )
   	
   	local yd = 'N';
   	if coor.y < 0 then yd = 'S' end;
   	local xd = 'E';
   	if coor.x < 0 then xd = 'W' end;
   	
   	if locale == 'de' and xd == 'E' then
   		xd = 'O';
   	end;
   	
   	return math.abs(coor.y) .. yd  .. ', ' .. math.abs(coor.x) .. xd;
end
Thank you for reporting the bug and a fix!! Very kind of you. I will upload as soon as I can.

Updated Waypoint to fix the location detection that was broken. Thanks again for reporting it.

Hmm this does not appear to work anymore.

Even with version 1.3 I type /way target 27.1S 48.0W and it puts the arrow up but does not ever update it even when I click the refresher arrow

It very well could be. I certainly haven't updated it in a very long time. Likely they changed the output of /loc command and Waypoint it no longer able to parse it correctly. Thanks for bringing this to my attension

edit: It turned out Turbine changed which chat channel /loc is output to. Version 1.3 should correct for this.
Grand! Works great for me, and smooth update as well with that amazingly useful tool you built, the Plugin Compendium

I only just discovered this one, seems it came with the latest version of Compendium, which I hadn't installed yet. So anyway, I'm not sure if you're aware of this, or if it's even just me being daft rather than a malfunction, but for me... Waypoint doesn't update, i.e. it keeps showing the 'reload' arrow, never shows any direction, no matter how many times I hit the button for /loc. Any thoughts? Possibly to do with Update 6?

Any chance to make the arrow movable on the screen?

The arrow is completely in the middle of the avatar, even on your screenshots the arrow is up the screen.
If you mouse over the top left corner of the waypoint arrow, an icon will appear for dragging it.

what changes were necessary to make the plugin compatible with non-english clients? i tried a few other plugins and i feel they fail to work because they have trouble writing / reading the serialized settings... i might be able to fix some stuff myself but i dont have time / want to find out everything on my own... thx.
To fix the serialization please refer to this
