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.

Hey robhupf,

Please try the new version (1.40). It adds (optional) popup notifications.

It also adds support (in a way) for your desire to have reminders that occur, for example, every 20 minutes. You can configure the "postpone" button that appears when a reminder expires. Right-click on it to define what it does.

Best regards,
Thurallor

Reminders

Maybe you could make it an option when creating a reminder whether to have a pop up reminder or not.

Thanks again for all you do.

Re: Reminders

My guess is that I missed the reminder firing because the only indicator is the number on the Reminders icon. Is there not anyway to have an audible or popup reminder when the reminder goes off?
An audible notification isn't possible, but a visual one is. My sense is that most users would find it annoying to have a window open every time a reminder expires, which they would then have to click on to close. But maybe an optional message could appear in the middle of the screen, and/or a more conspicuous change in the reminders icon.

Reminders

Thanks for the replies Thurallor. I did some more testing and the countdown timer function does work. My guess is that I missed the reminder firing because the only indicator is the number on the Reminders icon. Is there not anyway to have an audible or popup reminder when the reminder goes off?

Re: hourly

Hi robhupf,

Quote:
1)Making a reminder for x minutes past the hour every hour (example: Remind me at 10 mins past the hour, every hour)
Currently there is no way to do this automatically. I'll think about a user-friendly way to add it.

Quote:
2)Making an ad hoc timer for x minutes from now (example: Remind me 20 minutes from now)
You can do this. Simply create a new reminder by clicking the big "+" button, then click on the "Time" value to change the delay to 20 minutes. (You can also set the default delay for newly-created reminders, in the global settings window.)

Quote:
3)An option (and maybe this is already there) to repeat said reminder after it goes off
Not currently supported (except in special cases), but I'll think about it. (The supported cases are: crafting cooldowns, daily "tasks", ingredient crates, and repeatable quests.)

Quote:
4)Ability to share reminders between characters.
This is already implemented. All characters on a server can view all of the reminders on that server. If you mean something else, please specify.

Quote:
I highly appreciate all the work you do for the game and I use many of your plugins. I look forward to see what else you do with this and your other plugins.
Very glad to hear that, and thanks for the feedback!

hourly

I'm still experimenting with this plugin as I am reminder junkie outside of LOTRO. During the festival some ideas came to me that I dont see a way to do in your plugin.

1)Making a reminder for x minutes past the hour every hour (example: Remind me at 10 mins past the hour, every hour)

2)Making an ad hoc timer for x minutes from now (example: Remind me 20 minutes from now)

3)An option (and maybe this is already there) to repeat said reminder after it goes off

4)Ability to share reminders between characters.

I highly appreciate all the work you do for the game and I use many of your plugins. I look forward to see what else you do with this and your other plugins.

My nagging apparently was successful, and the problem was fixed in today's game update.

Heya So I just downloaded the plugin and have a few issues. Well, one major one Instead of options, etc. I only get ? for virtually everything in the options panel (excluding my toon's name). I'm using the English client and am somewhat baffled as this has never happened before Any chance you might know what causes this???
This is due to a bug introduced in Update 22 that breaks any plugin that has Russian language support (of which Reminders is one). I'm clinging to the forlorn hope that SSG will fix the bug in tomorrow's hotfix. If not, then I'll release updates to all of my plugins with a workaround. Meanwhile, you can apply the workaround yourself by installing the latest version of Listbox Patch. That will get rid of all of the "" stuff and occasional Russian text.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but you can blame SSG for basically not caring about plugins.

P.S. And now I'm getting this: ... Rings Online\Plugins\Thurallor\Reminders\Window.lua:167: bad argument #1 to 'unpack' (table expected, got nil)

P.P.S. Never mind, it all works now Had to fiddle around with the PluginData as well

Re: Re: Re: Quest

Sometimes I can't open the settings panel.
Do you see any error messages?

Quote:
And everything gets put into a single tab. Hoped it would make tabs for each of my alts. Will try 1.36 and see what happens.
You need to make your own tabs. Right-click on your existing tab and choose "Create tab". Or click the little "+" sign to the right of your existing tab.

Then you can go into the settings and choose, for each of your alts, which tab you want the automatic reminders to be placed under.

Thanks for reporting the issue, I'll take a look.

Edit: Found the root cause, will release a new version (1.36) shortly. Meanwhile, you can fix the problem by merely opening and closing the settings panel once.
Thanks. I've opened and closed the settings panel a bunch of times. Sometimes I can't open the settings panel. And everything gets put into a single tab. Hoped it would make tabs for each of my alts. Will try 1.36 and see what happens.

Re: Quest

Anyone else getting this error:

... Rings Online\Plugins\Thurallor\Reminders\Window.lua:867: attempt to call method 'FindExpiredEvent' (a nil value)

when you finish any of the Mordor Allegiance daily quests?

The plug-in detects them, but doesn't add them.
