Description
This plugin is meant to make the finding and sharing of Roving Threat locations easier. Locations are different each day and per server, they change at the usual 3AM servertime reset time.

Fuctionality:
- A map for each region with markers at each possible location for the Roving Threats, toggle red if there is a RT there.
- Coordinates are shown when hovering over a location.
- Locations are saved between alting on one server.
- Possibility to send the locations you have marked to chat channels.
- Option to 'Receive data': if someone else send their marked locations, they will automatically be added to your map.
- Toggle button to put anywhere on the screen to quickly hide/show the map.
- Locking of a map to avoid receiving wrong locations or accidentally changing them
- Clearing/activating all of one map's locations
- Clicking the green dot will show your approximate location on the map.
- Ctrl+clicking a location will send it to the group as the next target.
- Alt+clicking a location will use a Waypoint command.

Installation:
Unzip the folder in your Plugins folder. This plugin does not depend on other plugins.

Usage:
Either use "/plugins load RTPlugin" to load the plugin, or load it via the Plugin Manager ("/plugins manager").

You will get a small toggle button to put anywhere on your screen, to show and hide the main window. Furthermore, you can use "/rtplugin" to show and hide the main window.

In the main window, pick the area in which you are looking for the Roving Threats, and find the locations on the map. Hovering over the button will give you exact coordinates, clicking them will switch them from red to white and back, red for when there is a Roving Threat. Note that Roving Threats can walk around close to the coordinates.

To send the locations of a given map to other players, select the appropriate channel, and in case of a Tell, type in a target, and click the Send button. If anyone receiving the message has the 'Receive data' checkbox activated, the coordinates will be added to their map (Note, this will not clear already marked locations, so you can search a map together).

You can lock a map to avoid accidentally changing it by clicking the lock next to the close button, or by using the menu when right-clicking a map.

When a new day starts, press the Daily Reset button to clear the locations (since the locations change every day) of all maps (this requires maps being unlocked). To clear or activate all locations on one map, there is a menu when right-clicking one map.

For group leaders: you can ctrl+click the next location to send a message to the fellowship, raid, kinship, ... saying "Next RT is at <coords>.". Alt+click will use the Waypoint command to show the direction of the next coordinates. Clicking a green dot will put a marker on the map where you are (this will only refresh if you again click a green dot).


Although I have not encountered a Roving Threat that was not on the locations of these maps, it is possible that some locations are not yet marked. Should you encounter such location, I'll be happy to add the location.

1.6
- Added previously unknown locations

I uploaded a patch that adds a tab for "The Wastes".

I only included the six spawn locations mentioned at lotro-wiki.

I included Amoeborin's changes, except the Forochel location, which is almost right on top of an already-existing location.

I did the German and French translations myself, so they may not be ideal.

Hi everyone!

I have been busy, and well, it did not seem to be worth the hassle to update with just a few coordinates. I do intend to add the Wastes RTs map at some point, probably during summer. Until then, know that, as far as I've seen, the locations are quite limited (like: 7 spots for 5 RTs, I think), which is also a reason I didn't rush to update.

RTs for The Wastes

Thank you for this very cool and useful plugin. Is there going to be an update for the new area--The Wastes? Perhaps everyone knows the locations

Truly love your plugin! However, the last entry on the Wiki for Evendim is missing (perhaps added by Turbine after the last update to this plugin)

Until the plugin is updated - to add this to your RTP client, do the following:

1) Load your favorite text editor (like Notepad on Windows - to see Line Numbers, turn Format | Word Wrap off, and View | Status Bar on).

2) Open C:\Users\<<<YourUserName>>>\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\MathPlugins\RTStuff\MapData.lua


3) Add this after line 40.

mapdata["Evendim"]["16.6S 69.7W"] = EvendimCoords(-16.6, -69.7);


4) You can also add Adra's locations from his post as follows:

After line 58:

mapdata["Forochel"]["8.1N 76.7W"] = ForochelCoords(8.1, -76.7);

After line 170:

mapdata["Eastern Gondor"]["76.8S 17.2W"] = EGondorCoords(-76.8, -17.2);


5) Save the file and restart LoTRO client

Enjoy!

Hi and thank you for this nice plugin !

A kin mate asked me to inform you about two missing spawn locations :

Forochel : 8.1S, 76.7O http://lotro-wiki.fr/index.php/Menac...es_du_Forochel

East Gondor : 76.8S, 17.2O Nearby another one. http://lotro-wiki.fr/index.php/Menac...7est_du_Gondor

While in Angmar using this plugin I could not click on the spawn points to turn them red or send them to chat. I have not played in every area so I only know of just this one problem.
Was the map locked? (Check the lock icon in the upper right corner.)

Hello,

There is a little error for the french translation

File Strings.lua , line 143
strings["fr"]["channelList"]={{"Communaut"..string.char(195)..string.char(169) ,"/f "}

For French this is /comm and not /f

Thanks for your work

1) Thanks for this awesome plugin. Very useful !

2) One of the last additions (personal position with green dot) is broken for non-english clients. I worked on this and i have a fixed version. How can i send it to you ? (PM ? mail ? other ? )

3) What about the idea of adding the warbands on the maps ? of course not sending to the chat, but only an icon, tooltip and ctrl- & alt- click...

You forgot the "-" signs on the last map coordinate for Eastern Gondor (in MapData.lua). As a result, one of the points doesn't appear on the map.

Thanks for the update.

You might want to add German and French translations for the "Next RT is at <coords>" message.

Ugh. With as often as the game is crashing lately, the plugin really needs to save its data more often than it does. I would suggest saving every time the user marks a location.

Another point correction: In Central Gondor, 81.0S, 41.3W should be 80.8S, 40.8W per the wiki.

Thank you very much, I had no idea things like that would be so easy

I'm currently away, but I will definitely release a new version including these features. I will probably change the ctrl+click to use the send data you entered below yourself (in case you are in a fellowship, or just riding around with kinship or something). I'm also working on the "click to see your own location on the map", had to do some tweaking in order to get the coordinate functions right.

The one coordinate that needs changing: will do, I think I've seen that RT location exactly once, so I hadn't been able to verify.

Just for my planning: I will definitely release a version as 16.2 goes live, but possibly not all the features will be in yet (that will depend on my time). But I'll be working on getting a full version with all features.
