Arrow Dayly / Weekly tasks PLUGIN

Hi there!
I'm thinking about a plugin some dev may think about (please) :
DAYLY/WEEKLY Task manager

The problem (what I do now) :
It's really difficult to remember all the dayly, weekly or any other rythme cycles of tasks my caracters have to do. Crafting things each week, each day... making those repeatable quests in Ithilien... Or any other idea you may have.
By now, I use a simple "text" plugin in game that allows me to "write" things. But this is a huge window and it does not manage "timing" or "chekings".

The solution (what I'd like) :
A plugin (displaying and undisplaying with a click on a "mobile" button) displaying a list of tasks to do (with a "-" symbol at the begining of each element of the list to erase a task). A click on a task title may offer the possibility to "edit" this task.
At the end of the list, I may click a "+" symbol to add a new task on the list.
Write the title of that task i.e. "Gorgoroth ingredient crafting".
Set a "timing" i.e. 24 hours (this may be optionnal - if you do not fill this parameter, the task is a "one shot task" wich may disapear once it's done/checked.
This may display a green color text line in a list (order by alphabetical? or allow reordering of the list? Or order by "timing amount"?...) with a check box at the end of each line. Each time I check a box, timer starts runing for 24 hours (in that exemple) and the line turns red. The check box uncheck by itself and the line turns in green color once the delay is past.
Finaly, the windows may have title-able tabs (i.e. to manage different caracters tasks, or manage different kind of tasks).

Please let me know what you think about this (does it allready exist?)
And if you have any interrest to develop it, I'll be so thankfull !!

Nice trip to Arda!
Gloradan

PS : As a graphic designer, I may help for the design part if any need

A simple version of what you propose exists:

although, as you described, a much nicer version could be created.

I'll think about it.

Thanks.
This one look pretty cool. I'll give a try, but I'm sure we may find some better options in the future

Okay, here's my attempt. Please try it and give me your feedback.

It has a rather generic icon at the moment (just a square with an "R" in it) so if you feel like doing some graphic design, you could make a new one for it. (It should be somewhere between 32x32 pixels and maybe twice that, but doesn't have to be rectangular. I'd like it to have an empty area in the center where I can superimpose a single-digit number indicating the number of expired reminders.)

Hi there !

This plugin is brilliant. Thanks !!

I allready made an icon (and sent this one to you in PM). But it looks like this one wont suit your needs.

Next :
  • Translation is done for FR users (check your PMs)
  • A new icon will come (with a empty space inside for numbers) with a more "flat style" design

Sounds good; I'll use whatever you come up with. Please save it in .tga format (which is lossless and supports transparency, in case you want it to be non-rectangular).

Wowcool
About font management? The number inside is generated by the plugin I guess. Is there any way to chose a font? Or do you need a multilayer doc (PSD file) with numbers included..?

The number is generated by the plugin currently. In the icon there will always be one of the following: "R", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "6", "7", "8", "9", "9+".

When the icon is showing, and a reminder expires, the "R" changes to a number, indicating the number of expired reminders. If it's more than 9, it just says "9+".

When the number incremented, it "shimmers" until the mouse arrives.

If you don't like the built-in font (Trajan Pro Bold), the text could be replaced with .tga images.

Please also make a "highlighted" version of the icon for display when the mouse is present.

You'll find 3 icons in the folder I linked to you by PM.
Normal state (with R letter inside).
Yellow-like icon for up to 3 alerts pending.
Red-like icon for more than 3 alerts pending.

All thos icons come with a "hover" version slightly enlighted to distinguish the difference as the mouse comes over.

Hope it will be cute

PS : Translation of the plugin is ALSO available in your MPs ;-)
