Description
This plugin is meant to make the finding and sharing of Roving Threat locations easier. Locations are different each day and per server, they change at the usual 3AM servertime reset time.

Fuctionality:
- A map for each region with markers at each possible location for the Roving Threats, toggle red if there is a RT there.
- Coordinates are shown when hovering over a location.
- Locations are saved between alting on one server.
- Possibility to send the locations you have marked to chat channels.
- Option to 'Receive data': if someone else send their marked locations, they will automatically be added to your map.
- Toggle button to put anywhere on the screen to quickly hide/show the map.
- Locking of a map to avoid receiving wrong locations or accidentally changing them
- Clearing/activating all of one map's locations
- Clicking the green dot will show your approximate location on the map.
- Ctrl+clicking a location will send it to the group as the next target.
- Alt+clicking a location will use a Waypoint command.

Installation:
Unzip the folder in your Plugins folder. This plugin does not depend on other plugins.

Usage:
Either use "/plugins load RTPlugin" to load the plugin, or load it via the Plugin Manager ("/plugins manager").

You will get a small toggle button to put anywhere on your screen, to show and hide the main window. Furthermore, you can use "/rtplugin" to show and hide the main window.

In the main window, pick the area in which you are looking for the Roving Threats, and find the locations on the map. Hovering over the button will give you exact coordinates, clicking them will switch them from red to white and back, red for when there is a Roving Threat. Note that Roving Threats can walk around close to the coordinates.

To send the locations of a given map to other players, select the appropriate channel, and in case of a Tell, type in a target, and click the Send button. If anyone receiving the message has the 'Receive data' checkbox activated, the coordinates will be added to their map (Note, this will not clear already marked locations, so you can search a map together).

You can lock a map to avoid accidentally changing it by clicking the lock next to the close button, or by using the menu when right-clicking a map.

When a new day starts, press the Daily Reset button to clear the locations (since the locations change every day) of all maps (this requires maps being unlocked). To clear or activate all locations on one map, there is a menu when right-clicking one map.

For group leaders: you can ctrl+click the next location to send a message to the fellowship, raid, kinship, ... saying "Next RT is at <coords>.". Alt+click will use the Waypoint command to show the direction of the next coordinates. Clicking a green dot will put a marker on the map where you are (this will only refresh if you again click a green dot).


Although I have not encountered a Roving Threat that was not on the locations of these maps, it is possible that some locations are not yet marked. Should you encounter such location, I'll be happy to add the location.

When I use the RT Plugin
- Each time I change to a new map when we run our RT Runs, and I click the little green button to locate myself on the map, it opens the Moor Map.

- Then all is fine until I change maps and do it again for a new map.

I'm sure it's some conflict in the loc's that were updated but don't know which plugin is causing it so please check this and see what's going on. Thanks!
This is due to a bug in how MoorMap behaves when it detects a /loc command response in the chat. This has nothing to do with RTPlugin. I will further address this in the MoorMap thread.

Thumbs up Suggestions: RT Totals, Resize Window

Hello!
Want to say what an awesome plugin this is, our Kin uses it regularly a few times a week! I do have a couple suggestions if you are taking them at all:

1. Would be great if the maps had the number of RT's on each of the maps. Wouldn't need to be interactive, just something either on the map itself or on the tab with the numbers in Parenthesis or something. Would be helpful for those of us that scout on our hunters but may not be doing the runs on them, so grabbing the quests isn't always an option.

2. One of the things most of the people I've talked to that use the app have had in common is the desire to be able to resize the window. Would be great if it could be sizable with dragging the corner like many of the plugins are.
NOTE: This doesn't mean the maps have to resize, we can pan around them just fine so no need to resize them at all, just make the map movable within the window and we'd be very happy with that.

Thanks for any consideration you can give to these suggestions and even if not, for a great and useful plugin!

Re: All locations red

Quote:
Hi, I just installed RTPlugin and find it extremely useful. I am encountering a problem, though: each location I click is red, regardless of the presence of a RT. I installed the plugin via plugin compendium, is there something I should do to have it work correctly?
Thanks
Hello,

unfortunately there is no way for the plugin to determine where the RTs are. This plugin helps you see the possible spawn points and mark them (clicking on te locations making them red). Than you can share the locations with other players through chat. So you could for example scout the locations ahead for a big kin run, or get the locations from someone else that already found them.

Hope that explains.

Note: nowadays its possible for cap players to solo the RTs, so there is not as many organized runs and sharing coordinates in world chat as it used to be, so this plugin is mostly useful just for seeing the possible locations on map.

Mordor Besieged Update

I created a Mordor Besieged map update. It includes the previous map updates.
It is compatible with but does not include the Ctrl-Key Fix.

Re: Re: CTRL + click location doesnt work

Verified that this no longer works, either in the 32-bit or 62-bit client. Who knows why.

I uploaded a patch that fixes the problem (see above).
Thanks a lot. Can confirm that it is working again. Nice

This is not working for me anymore.
Could it be because of the 64 Bit client?

Heya
I am wondering if you are still updating this plugin.
Ctrl+clicking a location will send it to the group as the next target

This is not working for me anymore.
Could it be because of the 64 Bit client?
