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.

I might be able to do that relatively easily. I'll look into it.

I don't understand. What would be the purpose of a reminder, if it didn't tell you which raid/stage?

For now, the only way to keep track of raid locks would be to manually create your own reminders for them, or use the automatic-reminder feature since they are basically repeatable quests.
That's what I'm doing right now - I just thought it might be nice if it could be automated

I would be happy to add better support for raid locks, but unfortunately I don't have any raid-ready toons, so it would be difficult for me to test it.
Carn Dum has Raid Locks, right? That one should be soloable by most characters that are of a higher level.

Otherwise I discovered that Dar Narbugud is pretty easy to solo these days if you are lvl100+ - you can get the first ID in a few minutes.

I don't think that it should check WHICH IDs you have but only when they reset.

If you enter /raid locks you get a full list of the current locks in the chat-lock - pehaps it would be ok to just listen if the user uses that command and then add an entry for every line in the log?

It's formated as followed:

The Twins' Silver Chest resets in: 0d - 11h - 33m.
Thanks a lot for your work and for the fast answer!

Re: Great Plugin - a few possible improvements

Hi, Melaga,

Quote:
I like to have festival-quests in their own tab since there are quite a few of them that I'd like to track and it would clutter the General-Tab; my problem is that when I complete one of the festival-quests instead of checking in the other tab and marking the quest as done the plugin creates a new entry in the General tab that I then manually have to push over to my festival-tab - it would be nice it other tabs could be checked, too - or if we could assign a specific tab to repeatable quests in the first place
You can assign a specific tab (and category) to repeatable quests. In the options panel, under the Character tab, you should see the following:

What you cannot currently do is to specify a different tab/category for each individual quest. But I could add that.

Quote:
The other entry is a minor one but I'd like it if when sorting entries by time, if multiple entries are available it would show those with a "static" time period (like crafting-recipes) first and then those that reset when the server does since those with a static time are more urgent than those that only reset with the server where it doesn't matter if you do them first
I think when sorting by the "Time" column, most users want the reminders to be listed in order of expiration time, regardless of urgency. You can, however, sort the table by any other column (such as Category), and you can assign a "more urgent color" to more urgent categories. Or, you can put the "non-urgent" ones into a different tab.

the third one also is a smaller convenience feature that would go well with the general idea of the plugin: raid locks

it would be cool if the plugin could check raid-locks (just their reset-times) and display those in a specific tab, too
For example if you want to farm old raids for the housing items.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Thumbs up Great Plugin - a few possible improvements

First of all: I love your plugin - I have three suggestions though:

I like to have festival-quests in their own tab since there are quite a few of them that I'd like to track and it would clutter the General-Tab; my problem is that when I complete one of the festival-quests instead of checking in the other tab and marking the quest as done the plugin creates a new entry in the General tab that I then manually have to push over to my festival-tab - it would be nice it other tabs could be checked, too - or if we could assign a specific tab to repeatable quests in the first place

The other entry is a minor one but I'd like it if when sorting entries by time, if multiple entries are available it would show those with a "static" time period (like crafting-recipes) first and then those that reset when the server does since those with a static time are more urgent than those that only reset with the server where it doesn't matter if you do them first

the third one also is a smaller convenience feature that would go well with the general idea of the plugin: raid locks

it would be cool if the plugin could check raid-locks (just their reset-times) and display those in a specific tab, too
For example if you want to farm old raids for the housing items.

even without those features it's still one of my 3 favorite plugins together with Buffbars and Titanbar - keep up the great work!

Thanks for reporting it. It's a harmless message, but it will be fixed in the next version.

Sure, how to contact you and provide feedback?

Tried 1.25, no joy - do not use Sequence Bars.

Plugin works fine and behaves well, until log out: LOTRO goes through the logout count down, clears characters from screen seems to hang for a second or two then the LOTRO seems to have crashed window pops up

Loaded an alt with no other plugins, just Reminders and the game crashes: goes through the logout countdown, then the LOTRO has stopped working screen. So, at least for me, the plugin is the issue.

Appears that it is really not an issue, since crash is at logout, data appears to be saved, etc, it is just a very inelegant exit from the game and may cause some anxiety

D'oh! It looks like there's a conflict between the latest versions of Reminders and SequenceBars. I'll post an update shortly.

I'm still working on the problem with crashes at logout.

Edit: Version 1.25 should fix the conflict. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Updated to 1.24 same as ever did (unpack and overwrite) and had the following errors with no reminders showing up in the list. I did not crash on logout.

Code:
... Rings Online\Plugins\Thurallor\Reminders\Window.lua:554: attempt to call method 'SetAddTabButtonEnabled' (a nil value)
... Rings Online\Plugins\Thurallor\Reminders\Window.lua:658: attempt to call method 'SetAddTabButtonEnabled' (a nil value)
... Rings Online\Plugins\Thurallor\Reminders\Window.lua:902: attempt to index local 'frontTab' (a nil value)
Backed up, deleted the folder and reverted to 1.23 and the list came back. I crashed on logout.

Any advice?

Re: Game crash on exit/log out to character list

Quote:
Just DLd this plugin everything works fine, except for the plugin causing a game CTD. Only occurs on a character when the plug in is loaded and logging out of the game. No CTD when the plugin is not loaded for any character.

Also have the ListBox patch installed (yes properly located) and no CTD for any character, unless Reminder is loaded.

ListBox and Reminders plugins are the only new items installed.
Thanks for reporting this.

Since the problem doesn't manifest on my setup, I need people who are willing to try different test versions of the plugin, to isolate the problem. Would you be willing to participate?

Edit: Please try the latest version, 1.24. It may fix your problem.

Yes. I would be willing to run tests to fix it. This plugin is essential for anyone that is serious about crafting and has many alts.
