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.

Guessed so
Thank you so much. Gave a try yesterday and everything looks perfect!

Hope we will have another project to work on someday

Are you sure about that? There should be no way for a plugin to suppress that text. I wouldn't rule out a bug like that in the client, though. I'll double-check tomorrow.
You put doubt in my mind so I double-checked. I was wrong. Sorry!
I didn't give the orcs enough time to register their 'lines'.

Lovely, that seems to be occurring on an undocumented chat channel (22). It should be ignored quietly now, thanks for reporting it.
You're welcome.

It's flooding the message box as there are quite a few orcs.

New bug

Found another bug:

Code:
The Orc looks in your direction...

... Rings Online\Plugins\Thurallor\Reminders\Window.lua:722: attempt to call field '?' (a nil value)

The Orc stops staring at you.

That way you could add up different servers (and possibly different accounts)
Certainly. The save-files are in a text format that you can easily parse. I have no intention of making such an external application, although I do plan to improve support for different servers. The annoying thing is that a plugin can't detect the name of the current server, so I'll have to ask the user to input it, once for each server.

Just back from family house for the weekend. And I'm pleased to see that this bug is probably fixed (EDIT : I confirm it's solved:-))

I actually had this bug, but I may have specified I'm VIP user and using a premium crate ;-)

Did you recieved the DE icon?

Thanks very much!
Probably because I've only tested it with the standard "Ingredient Crate", and there's something different about the premium one that I'm not aware of. Gloradan also reported such a problem, but he didn't mention whether it was the standard or premium crate, and I assumed it was specific to the French client.

I have both kinds of crate at my house, but I'm not VIP at the moment, so I can only use the standard one. I guess I have an excuse now to upgrade. Thanks for reporting the issue.

Edit: Should be fixed now.

Thanks Glafria for translations
