The Shortest Route!
 
Description
Ever needed to get from one location around Middle Earth and you're not a hunter or can't bribe one to port you around? StableGuy gives you a quick and easy method of using the available Stable Masters to show you shortest path from A to B.

Simply select the starting location and where you want to go and StableGuy will show you the shortest route by calculating the minimum number of hops to travel from A to B thus minimising cost and travel time.

Features
Simple drop-down menu to select From and To locations.

Incorparates waypoints to run to manually to get to the nearest Stable Master where no direct link exists. eg. You can be in Inner Caras Galadhon, but there's no direct Stable Master route to Caras Galadhon (no idea why!). StableGuy will direct you to run to co-ordinates at the south gate, then on to the Stable Master to continue the journey.

Works between regions and zones throughout Middle Earth. eg. You want to travel from Echad Dunnan in Eregion to The Vinyards of Lorien in Lothlorien. StableGuy will show all the Stable Masters and Waypoints into Moria and out the other side all the way to the Vinyards.

StableGuy covers all the regions around Middle Earth including Moria, Lothlorien, Eregion, Bree-land, Misty Mountains, Trollshaws, Ered Luin, Evendim, Forochel, Shire, Angmar, Enedwaith, North Downs, Dunland, Gap of Rohan, Mirkwood, Nan Curunir, The Great River, Wildermore, East & West Rohan.

Not only does StableGuy show locations for all the StableMasters, but also includes all entrances to raids, campfires and mustering horns, milestones, and spawn locations for Warbands throughout Wildermore, East & West Rohan for good measure!

Limitations
StableGuy will suggest the shortest route based on all known connections between Stable Masters, even though you may not have previously unlocked the suggested Stable Master. You will need to discover the Stable Master in that location in order to use it in the future by either speaking with the Stable Master or completing the corresponding deed.

StableGuy does not calculate actual time taken to travel from A to B because paths and tracks do not interconnect in a straight line. Roads can wind and twist and horses/goats vary in speed, therefore affecting the actual time taken to travel.

StableGuy always uses Swift Travel as a priority over normal travel to shorten the number of hops, even though this may not be available until Swift Travel has been unlocked by either discovery or completing deeds. Misleading results may occur if you do not have Swift Travel unlocked for the suggested locations, but will all fall into place once you have them unlocked.

If you can't see the suggested Stable Master on your list, it means you haven't discovered it yet. This should not pose too much of a problem because most quests are fairly localised at the lower levels. StableGuy comes in particularly handy for doing quests that require running around all over the place such as the tavern challenge quests.

Version Information
v2.00 - Major Update! Added locations of all known campfire sites, mustering horns and raid entrances as well as an all new compact look.
v2.01 - Fixed a problem for 1st time users that would fail to load the plugin.
v2.10 - Fixed that path problem (again!). Hopefully added the correct compendium configuration data. Added 'Camp' next to campsite co-ordinates for easier identification.
v2.20 - Sorted Stable Masters into region order, added co-ordinates to Stable Master locations, added Homesteads to Places of Interest, added missing Stable Masters (Searadan's Cabin & Candelleth's Camp).
v2.30 - Added milestones with co-ordinates, renamed campsites with horns, fixed a couple of typo's, added a splash of colour, and location to the Home of Radicus!
v2.40 - Added Festival Stable Masters and milestone (Treasure Hunt) in Bree-land, Ered Luin and Lone Lands.
v2.50 - Added East-Rohan Stable Masters, campsites, & milestones.

v2.70 - Added Wildermore Stable Masters & Milestones.
v2.80 - Added Warbands approximate spawn locations in Wildermore and East Rohan.
v2.90 - Added Helm's Deep (West Rohan) updates! Includes new Stable Masters, Campsites, Milestones and Warband locations.
v3.00 - Added new U13 updates - New Stablemaster at Isengard & Hourn Waypoint, Updated routes and Milestones in Trollshaws and Misty Mountains.
v4.00 - Added new U14 & U15 updates - New Stablemaster locations in Western and Central Gondor.
v4.01 - Fixed bug on not finding settings file on startup for new installs (as described in user comments below), added missing Milestones & Campsites in West Rohan & Western Gondor, renamed Pelargir to West Pelargir, added Central Gondor & Eastern Gondor U16 Stable Masters, Milestones & Campsites

Future Plans
Find a way of eliminating Stable Masters not unlocked yet from the route, and/or an option for non-subscribers that don't have swift travel available. This will require abit more time to go back over all the routes and add non-swift travel routes as well, but need to work out how I'm going to link towns up as alot of them only have swift travel routes and no slow travel... kind of defeats the purpose as you wont be able to use the Stable Master to get around! You'll have to run manually. Any suggestions?

Add new zones as they become available.

Add more places of interest (send me your suggestions to be included!)

Automatically detect closest Stable Master to your current location and suggest as starting point... hmmm Pythagoras Theorum and some Triangulation will come in handy here. Lucky I paid some attention in math class.

Installation
Ensure the file path is: "\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\RadicusPlugins\StableGuy" if installing manually or use Plugin Compendium to install to the correct folder.

Find me on http://www.facebook.com/radicus.hood or find me on the Riddermark server.

If you totally love this plugin how about a $1 donation by Paypal to paul@anotherworld.com.au or some BitCoin to 12PoPSt2VSabwD5VLwRrxzGfwVVkAr3m2b ? It's appreciated!

Loading Settings Should Be Resolved Now

Thanks for the comments and bug report, didn't pick that one up. Should be fixed now with the updated version. It wasn't taking into account first time installs, where the settings file did not exist.

Also added latest Central & Eastern Gondor Stable Masters, Milestones & Campsites.

Please let me know if there's any more issues!

Plugin not loading

Quote:
This plugin has a bug in it that prevents it from working if it has not previously created the settings file (which is always true the first time you run it on a new machine). It must have been introduced after the author and most users created their settings file with a previous version of the plugin.

You can fix the problem yourself by editing the file RadicusPlugins/StableGuy/Window.lua. Change the third line in that file from
Code:
local Settings = Turbine.PluginData.Load(Turbine.DataScope.Character, "StableGuySettings");
to
Code:
local Settings = Turbine.PluginData.Load(Turbine.DataScope.Character, "StableGuySettings") or {};
Thanks alot. The plugin didn't load, but this solution worked for me

Uman's solution below will also work, but it forces the "VIP" checkbox to always be checked on startup.

Lightbulb Known Stables Idea

Had an idea for the issue of removing unknown stables from the route list.

Have a list of binary variables comprising all stable masters in the game. Unknown False, known True. Allow users to access a tick box list (grouped by region & zone for ease of use), this is to allow manual input of known stables. An option should exist for users to use a single box to select all stables within a zone, or region.

Have an tick box for uses to specify whether they wish the route to contain unknown stables. If so the route is formed as it is currently, with unknown stables marked in some way (greyed out, for example). If the user specifies not to include unknown stables the route is formed from only those known stables, perhaps including a message dictating how far away (as the crow flies) the final horse taxi will end up from the objective.

The route finder uses the variables defined earlier to determine whether a route is known, or unknown. Furthermore, when a message occurs in the chat to specify that a new route has been discovered, the plugin uses /loc to determine where the character is and references that to the coords of the stable guy (within, say 5% variance to allow for players to be a bit off target).

Issues: requires the plugin to monitor chat; requires the cords for all stable guys to be discovered and noted prior to release; initially requires a lot of user input to set up for non-newly created characters; non-elegent work around.

Positives: solves the issue it set out to solve; while requires a lot of initial work by writer, later stables can be added with limited difficulty & work.

Let me know what you think, I'd be willing to gather the coords for the stable guys and build the reference list, so long as you can tell me what format it needs to take.

Re: Workaround

Thanks for this workaround Uman, it's worked brilliantly.

++++++++++
If you see these messages:

...s Online\Plugins\RadicusPlugins\StableGuy\Window.lua :159: attempt to index local 'Settings' (a nil value)
...ngs Online\Plugins\RadicusPlugins\StableGuy\Main.lua:1 1: Failed to import package "RadicusPlugins.StableGuy.Window".

One workaround is to edit the window.lua file (in the RadicusPlugins/StableGuy folder) and change this if statement (lines 159-161)

if Settings["VIPState"]==true then
wStableGuy.checkboxVIP:SetChecked(true);
end

to just

wStableGuy.checkboxVIP:SetChecked(true);

It's not within my expertise to explain why detecting the VIPState fails. Maybe someone smarter knows.

I have same problem. has there been a fix yet?
No. It looks like Radicus is no longer maintaining this. I'm using the Travel Reference addon instead; which is similar in concept to this but has some nice features such as taking into consideration what discounts you may have, and what locations you have unlocked via reputation; and whether you are high enough level to use quick travel to a location.
