Alias editor

I'm a big fan of alias's (and macros in WoW), now in DDO we can create complicated alias's in a text file and import into game with /importoptions alias.txt but LOTRO doesn't allow this.
Would be great to have a simple pluggin that lets you create,edit, and manage alias's and shortcuts in game. prehaps similar to WoW's macro editor.

Actually Lotro sort of supports this.. but then again a Lua plugin would probably make things a lot more simple and clean (coders wake up )

You might want to take a look at Emo!

Here's how you can do it in Lotro:
  • Make a new file into the following folder:
    • \\MyDocuments\The Lord of the Rings Online\UI\Layouts\
  • Save the file as: (you can use what ever name you want, just the file definition needs to be .layout I think)
    • alias.layout
  • Here's and example how the file could look like
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
<UI>

  <Version Value="1.0"/>

  <Aliases>
    <Alias String=";inv" Value="/invite ;target"/>
  </Aliases>
</UI>
    • You can add lines between <Aliases> and </Aliases>. The syntax for that is <Alias String=";x" Value="y" /> where ;x (don't forget the semicolon) is the name of the alias and y is the funtion what it does.
  • Save the file
  • In-game load the aliases from the file with the following command:
    • /ui layout load alias
  • Voila!
    • the aliases will be saved on every toon seperately, and they are saved server-side
