Description
Introduction

Deed Tracker is designed to help you keep track of your completed deeds. (Or, if you're like me, which deeds you haven't done yet.)

Unlike the in-game Deed Log, Deed Tracker will show you every deed for every tab on every page, whether you've started it or not. No more wondering if an area has hidden deeds! Deeds are presented in a hierarchical tree, and a built-in search bar makes finding a specific deed very fast.

Each time you complete something, Deed Tracker checks to see if it was a deed. If it was, it checks it off for you!

Deed Tracker provides a quick way to see where you can find more LOTRO Points and Virtue XP, and gives progress at the tab, page, and overall level.

Ever complete multiple deeds at once and get frustrated that the game only remembers the last deed you completed? The Completion Window tracks them as long as you want, provides a button to send your completion to a chat channel of your choice, and you can produce a short summary.

Want a way to see which deeds your other characters have completed? Deed Tracker lets you see Deed Tracker status for each of your characters on that server with a handy character selection dropdown.

Due to limitations in the LOTRO scripting interface, Deed Tracker cannot tell which deeds you have already completed. Don't let that stop you, though! By default, when you complete a deed (for example, Slayer of Bree-land), Deed Tracker will automatically mark all prerequisite deeds complete. This works when you manually check deeds off, too!

Notes:
  • See a description of all the features at http://deedtracker.lifebeyondtheshire.com/
  • Unlike the in-game Deed Log, Deed Tracker cannot tell how far along you are on a deed. Deed Tracker is meant to be a companion to the in-game Deed Log, to serve as an easy way to guide your deeding.
  • There are numerous, identically-named deeds in LOTRO (for instance: warg-slayer). When you complete one of these, Deed Tracker will try to determine which one it was. If it cannot, it will display a window asking you to select the correct one.
  • Currently only English is supported.


Installation and Startup

To install:
  • First, make sure you have the "Turbine Classes and Examples" installed from https://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info1012-TurbineClassesandExamples.html. (If you do, you will see a folder called Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins/Turbine.) (If you have not previously installed any plugins, you will have to first create the Plugins folder.)
  • Next, unzip the archive. You will get a folder called "CubePlugins". Move this folder into your Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/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". (As a shortcut, you can also type "/plugins manager" in your chat window.

When the Plugin Manager opens, find Deed Tracker in the list on the left side. 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.

Known Issues
  • Needs support for French & German
  • When "Hide completed deeds" is on, when there are two categories in a row, the first category is treated as empty is hidden incorrectly.
  • Deed Tracker does not currently know which landscape region each instance "belongs" to, so if you complete a landscape deed while in an instance, the disambiguation window can't highlight the most likely one.
  • In "Hide completed deeds", when a tab doesn't have any eligible deeds (see Allegiances for a character < 110), the progress bar is blue.
  • The Anniversary Scavenger Hunt auto bestows and completes before plugins are loaded, and must be checked off manually.

Revision History
  • 2021-04-29: Version 1.1.3: Release notes are here.
  • 2021-04-20: Version 1.1.2: Initial public release notes are here, includes U29.5 deeds.

Re: Can't click on list of waypoints

Hi. How do you click on any waypoints in the list? Whenever I try to move my cursor to them, the box disappears.
Great question! To interact with a tooltip (for example: click it, move it, scroll down to additional content), you must first detach it. (The default Detach Tooltip key is H, but you may have bound it to something else.)

Once you have detached it, you can then click any of the waypoint arrows.

I hope that helps!

Kinda useless if it can't show deeds already completed.
While it is true that Deed Tracker cannot currently determine which deeds you completed before you started using it, it can auto-detect when you complete deeds going forward.

The easiest use-case is to start using Deed Tracker with a new character, ensuring it stays in-sync from the very beginning, but filling in already-completed deeds is fast because when a deed is marked complete, Deed Tracker will auto-complete all pre-requisite deeds. (For instance, mark "Deeds of the Shire" complete (manually or by finishing it), and Deed Tracker will auto-complete all pre-requisite deeds. For the Shire, that's all of them.)

Additionally, even if you don't use Deed Tracker to track deeds, it offers a few other features you might find useful:
  • The in-game Deed Log doesn't show you deeds you haven't started yet, and never shows hidden deeds until they're completed. Deed Tracker shows both.
  • The in-game Deed Log sorts things by category and then alphabetically. I find it difficult to find a deed in the deed log because of this. Deed Tracker shows them in a hierarchical fashion, showing clearly which deeds must be completed before others.
  • The in-game Deed Log doesn't show you lore for uncompleted items, and doesn't tell you where to find location-based objectives. Deed Tracker provides the lore right away, and integrates with the Waypoint plugin if you want to speed up finding those deed objectives. (See the second image above.)

If your character has a lot of deeds done already, then marking them complete in Deed Tracker is a daunting task. (There's over 2500 currently-available deeds for a level 130!) I hope to make it even easier in the future, but until then, if none of these other features are appealing to you then this may not be the plugin for you.

Cheers!

I am more than willing to help you with the German translation. I've helped a few coders as well.
If you use Discord, come join us on the CubePlugins discord at https://discord.gg/cmURZXpt (Link expires in 7 days)! You can also just email [email protected].

(Almost) all of the UI text is in Strings.lua, and you can see how each language can be supported on lines 6-9 for "COMMAND".

Where can I find all the text that needs to be translated? I will start right away.

This plugins looks very promising. Can't wait to try it.

That would really be great, if you could realize that.
I play the game since beta and with every single character i always try to complete all the deeds.
I used a self created excel sheet which was in many aspects not optimal.

I will have a look here from time to time to follow this post. Hopefully you get it work !

Many thanks - keep on doin' that great work !

Great work - fantastic tool/plugin...
For me as a completionist it is like "heaven on earth" :-)
Do you plan to release your Plugin in different laguages ? (GER ?)

Thank you, and I'm glad to hear you're enjoying it.

At the moment, Deed Tracker expects every deed to have a unique name (example: Slayer of Bree-land) because I wrote it based on an English-speaking perspective. As far as I can tell, though, in both French and German some deeds are conjugated based on the gender of the character (German: Bezwinger des Breelandes (male) or Bezwingerin des Breelandes (female), and French: Exterminateur du Pays de Bree (male) or Exterminatrice du Pays de Bree (female)).

I will have to change some things under the covers to account for this, and then I hope to support English, French, and German. Thank you for your kind offer!

Thank you! Source control says the first commit was October 31, 2020, and here we are just 509 commits later. It's been a bit of an obsession.
