The plugin can detect repeated quests and automatically make reminders for you
 
Description
Introduction

This plugin helps you keep track of all those recurring tasks you need to juggle when managing several characters. It maintains a table of reminders for "to do" items, each of which has a countdown timer and an optional color-coded category. You can organize the reminders into tabs however you prefer, such as a tab for each character, or a tab for each category of task.

Thanks to Gloradan for the idea, for French translations, and for the beautiful, giant icons he made for the plugin!

Thanks to Glafria for German translations.

Installation and Startup

To install:
  • First, unzip the archive. You will get a folder called "Thurallor". Move this folder into your Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins folder. (If you have not previously installed any plugins, you will have to first create the Plugins folder.)
  • Or if you prefer, you may use Plugin Compendium to do the installation.
To load the plugin, use the game's built-in Plugin Manager. This can be found in the "^" menu, at the bottom of the screen. Click the icon, then choose "System" and then "Plugin Manager".

When the Plugin Manager opens, find Reminders in the list on the left side, then click "Load" to load the plugin. If you would like the plugin to load automatically each time you login, choose your character's name in the "Automatically Load For" pulldown menu.

Features
  • When the timer for a reminder expires, the icon for the plugin will show a flashing indicator to alert you.
  • When the timer for a reminder expires, you can delete the reminder, postpone it, or simply leave it alone. In that case you'll get another alert next time you login.
  • If enabled, the plugin will automatically create reminders for repeatable quests and tasks.
  • If enabled, the plugin will automatically create reminders for crafting cooldowns: When you craft an item with a cooldown, it automatically adds a reminder that will expire when the cooldown is complete.
  • If enabled, the plugin will automatically create reminders when you open Ingredient Crates and Premium Ingredient Crates.
  • If you specify a location for a reminder, the plugin provides a convenient button to set the target for Waypoint.
  • You can create as many categories as you want and assign colors to them.
  • Automatically create travel itineraries by pasting a list of locations from lotro-wiki.
  • Reminders can be sorted by any column of the table (description, category, character, and time remaining). All of the table columns can be resized or hidden, and you can change the color of each tab and its associated table. Right-clicking on a reminder allows you to copy/move it to a different tab.
Wish List
  • Translations for Russian players. Please send me a PM if you're willing to help.
  • Some kind of indicator that a reminder was automatically created, e.g. an alert message floating up from the icon or appearing in the middle of the screen.
  • More types of automatically-generated reminders.
  • Drag-and-drop support to move the reminders around within the tables and among the tabs.
  • Better support for multiple servers. Currently all of the reminders for each server are completely separate; in order to see the reminders for another server, you need to login to a character on that server.
  • Caching to reduce plugin load time.
  • Proper support for Daylight Saving Time.

Hi, well the situation is like that, I have some reminders with specific times, for example: in Crickhollow server Monday 17:00 hours, Tuesday 17:00 with the same character. Also have automatic reminders for recipes with cooldowns.

When I enter in another server the reminder time is "reset" and appears like "now", and when you see the time of the reminder is the actual time in server, this happens with all reminders if they have a specifi time, with reminder for next login doesn't happen.

Yesterday I delete all reminder of recipes cooldowns and apparetly the reminders with specific time works fine, but later I discovery that again they were reseted.

Today I adjusted the times again, login an logout several times and no one of the reminders was reseted, but I suspect that the reset may be relationated with be login in a diferent day, like if when the day ends the clock were reseted.

I hope this info can be of help.

See later.

EDIT: Effectevely the time in the reminders were reset today.

I believe that it is probably not working correctly. I will investigate further and try to isolate the problem.

It would help if you can provide more information. I'm not asking you to thoroughly diagnose the problem. But be more specific about your observations: Tell me exactly when the countdown is "reset", and exactly what you mean by "reset".

Hi Thurallor, thanks for the update.

I made the update and fix the times but the countdowns are resetting yet, I don't know if I'm making something wrong, I will do more test and I tell you later.

EDIT: Now is working fine, I will do another test with a recipe countdown...
EDIT 2: Today the countdown were reset again...

You're right, I'm using Lotropad for make this anotations and register the characters, but sometimes can be very annoying do it manually, that is the idea for something more of automatization.

Don't give up, your work is great, thanks again for make theses plugins for the community.

The work of people like both of you is very invaluable for us, thank you guys.

Interesting. It hadn't occurred to me that the internal server clocks might not be synchronized with each other. I'll look into it. It may be an easy fix.

Yeah, something like a spreadsheet for have a record of the characters, the ideal could be that the general info like name, class, etc. where fill automatically but at same time we can create our own colums for anotations, for the alt-lovers like me this could be very useful, I don't know if is possible with LUA get the info of the equipament.
Well, I could make a generic "spreadsheet" plugin, but it would be a very poor imitation of Excel. I'm not sure there is a point. The only advantage would be you wouldn't have to use Alt+Tab to switch between the game and Excel.

Interesting idea. It will work, but you need to do the correct symbolic link (with mklink on Windows, or ln -s on Mac/Linux):
PluginData/account/server2/AllCharacters/Reminders.plugindata -> PluginData/account/server1/AllCharacters/Reminders.plugindata
Note that if you use the same character name on both servers, you will have no way to distinguish the reminders for the two characters. But otherwise, it should work fine.

A major impediment to adding multiple-server support to the plugin is that the Lua interface currently has no way to detect which server you're logged into. Working around that limitation requires some trickery, some manual user input, and some added complexity to the plugin design; and it's not foolproof (in particular, symbolic links can interfere with the server detection trickery). I'm not sure if/when I will get around to implementing it.

Quote:
And third a big petition, can you create a similar plugin to this for track characters, using a similar metod that Reminders, something where we can have name, level, class, vocation and user camps. Thanks again and good luck!in and good luck!

I'll add it in the next version.

I might be able to do that relatively easily. I'll look into it.

I don't understand. What would be the purpose of a reminder, if it didn't tell you which raid/stage?

That's what I'm doing right now - I just thought it might be nice if it could be automated

Quote:

Carn Dum has Raid Locks, right? That one should be soloable by most characters that are of a higher level.

Otherwise I discovered that Dar Narbugud is pretty easy to solo these days if you are lvl100+ - you can get the first ID in a few minutes.

I don't think that it should check WHICH IDs you have but only when they reset.

If you enter /raid locks you get a full list of the current locks in the chat-lock - pehaps it would be ok to just listen if the user uses that command and then add an entry for every line in the log?

It's formated as followed:

The Twins' Silver Chest resets in: 0d - 11h - 33m.
Thanks a lot for your work and for the fast answer!

Re: Great Plugin - a few possible improvements

Hi, Melaga,

Quote:
I like to have festival-quests in their own tab since there are quite a few of them that I'd like to track and it would clutter the General-Tab; my problem is that when I complete one of the festival-quests instead of checking in the other tab and marking the quest as done the plugin creates a new entry in the General tab that I then manually have to push over to my festival-tab - it would be nice it other tabs could be checked, too - or if we could assign a specific tab to repeatable quests in the first place
You can assign a specific tab (and category) to repeatable quests. In the options panel, under the Character tab, you should see the following:

What you cannot currently do is to specify a different tab/category for each individual quest. But I could add that.

Quote:
The other entry is a minor one but I'd like it if when sorting entries by time, if multiple entries are available it would show those with a "static" time period (like crafting-recipes) first and then those that reset when the server does since those with a static time are more urgent than those that only reset with the server where it doesn't matter if you do them first
I think when sorting by the "Time" column, most users want the reminders to be listed in order of expiration time, regardless of urgency. You can, however, sort the table by any other column (such as Category), and you can assign a "more urgent color" to more urgent categories. Or, you can put the "non-urgent" ones into a different tab.

Quote:
the third one also is a smaller convenience feature that would go well with the general idea of the plugin: raid locks

it would be cool if the plugin could check raid-locks (just their reset-times) and display those in a specific tab, too
For example if you want to farm old raids for the housing items.
For now, the only way to keep track of raid locks would be to manually create your own reminders for them, or use the automatic-reminder feature since they are basically repeatable quests.

I would be happy to add better support for raid locks, but unfortunately I don't have any raid-ready toons, so it would be difficult for me to test it.

Thanks for the suggestions.
