Lotropad window
 
Description
Overview

Lotropad is a simple notepad plugin which you can use to quickly write down some notes without exiting the game. It can be used for, for example, cutting and pasting text to and from chat windows and storing reference information such as instance tactics or LOTRO Store shopping lists .

Big thanks to Vevenalia for the French translation!

Features
  • 10 note pages, each of which can be named
  • Image notes
  • Movable and resizable window
  • Adjustable font size, window opacity, and visibility on load
  • Movable button for toggling Lotropad window
  • NEW: Mini mode, right-click the button to switch between normal and mini mode

Installation
  • Unzip the plugin to your 'Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins' folder

How to use
  • To load the plugin type /plugins load lotropad.
  • You can show and hide Lotropad window by clicking the Lotropad icon (visible by default). Button can be moved by dragging it. Position of the button is saved when clicking 'save all'.
  • Right-click the Lotropad icon to switch between normal and mini mode. In the mini mode, everything else is hidden except the text of the note.
  • Click and drag from the bottom right corner of the window to resize it.
  • Click and drag the title bar to move the window.
  • To save your notes click Save all, this will save the contents of all your notes. The write procedure is delayed so it might take a moment to be executed. Notes are currently saved per account which means that all of your characters on all servers can access them. Note that pressing Set will only set the title and text for the current note. However, this is also done automatically as you click through your notes.
  • Click settings to adjust the font size (main text field only), window opacity, and window visibility on load.
  • You can set a background, such as a map or tactics diagram, for a note. First copy the image (jpg or tga only) to images folder under the Lotropad plugin folder. Then click Img and type the image filename to the text field. Clicking Set image sets the image as the new background and Clear image removes the background image.
  • Answers to commonly asked questions can be found here

Command line options
  • /lotropad show - shows the Lotropad window
  • /lotropad hide - hides the Lotropad window
  • /lotropad toggle - toggles the Lotropad window
  • /lotropad - lists command line options

Known issues
  • When the whole note does not fit the window, the position of the scroll bar always moves to the end when the note is opened.
  • The plugin might still have problems with German or French clients
  • Background images might not be visible with some skins. This depends on how the alpha channel is set in ArtAssetID "black_translucent" image.

Did you enter the filename correctly? If not, the background will turn gray, and there should be an error message in the chat window:

Note that the filename is case-sensitive and must include the extension (.jpg). If you have any non-English characters in the filename, you might try renaming it.
yes, I copied the name directly from the name of the picture and then put it into the plugin, and since English is not my native language so I use the names in the alphabet without diacrystals (I'm Slovak) because I know from English on sometimes a problem with diacritics

Works fine for me. The two accepted image formats are .jpg and .tga.

The files must be placed in Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins/Chiran/Lotropad/images.

Yes that is possible, and just raising the number takes only a few minutes. However, they wouldn't fit the UI so some kind of scrollable/scalable UI would be needed which takes much more effort. Again, I can consider it, but as I don't play the game anymore it's not a top priority for me...

thank you for the answer, can I hope to make such a modification in the future or is it a topic for you?

Indeed, looks like it is nowadays broken somehow. I can try to find out why, but can't promise a fix yet.

Can confirm Esc doesn't work (the in-game menu opens, but Lotropad doesn't disappear).

In the same idea, I'd like for keyboard shortcut to work, like ctrl+Z to cancel last change, or ctrl+Y to re-do it.

Actually it should work even now? Although esc does also display the normal in-game esc menu, which is inconvenient. Not sure if it's possible to prevent that, probably not.

Just a user-to-user tip: Cross Alt Info

You always remember absolutely everything you could possibly need across all your alts, right? So you remember what type of armor(s) your Burglar can wear? Or whether your Jeweler can make T6 stuff? Can your Champion use that random drop? Which character is holding all those Essences you've been collecting?

Well, perhaps something like this info kept permanently (and periodically updated) on one of the tabs in LotroPad can help.

Code:
CharacterName - Cook & Farmer
(37, Hobbit, Guardian, Yeoman, Heavy, Spear & Heavy Shield)
   Cook              T9   Max
   Farmer            T9   Max   Guilded
   Tailor            T1   ---
   Inventory        120  Max
   Vault            210  Max
Decore, Essence, Lootboxes, Legendary Crafting, Shared Crafting
Some comments:
  • The "Cook & Farmer" part tells me which profession(s) my character performs (not all my characters are trained up on all 3 professions - for instance; that is what the Tailor entry means he's a T1 and doesn't need any mats).
  • The "Yeoman" tells me the name of this profession combo so that when I need to get a new tool for the character I remember to get the right one!
  • The "Heavy" part is the highest value armor the character can use.
  • Then I list the professions known (cause I don't ever remember this) the Tier level and any mats needed (in this case, I'm maxed; otherwise I might have "T7 Riddermark" for Tailor letting me know tier # and the hides I need).
  • "Guilded" lets me know if the character is a Guild member and has access to the Guild Recipes.
  • "Inventory" and "Vault" both show the number of slots the character has available, and shows if they're maxed out. Good to know if LotRO has a sale.
  • Finally I list any class of items that the character is storing in it's vault, like Essences, so that when I need to find an Essence, I don't need to hunt through all of my characters. While you can use other plugins to keep track of inventory, perhaps you don't want the overhead and delay while that plugin does its thing. This allows a quicky way to handle things, knowing in general which character to search - but at the cost of not being able to know exactly what the character has stored.
  • Although there is no entry for it above, you could keep track of any Factions that can still use Rep Items.

Just don't get too "columny" because LotroPad uses the game font - which is a proportional font. So nothing will line up perfectly; a pixel or three, here or there, is as close as you'll get.

This effort is sometime made easier by creating it in another text editor for initial layout and ease of use. Then copy and paste into LotroPad and adjust as needed. Try not to get too frustrated.
