New Vitals Window

I'm looking for a new Vitals plugin that displays only characters level, Name, morale, and power. I'd like the Morale and Power bars to have the text centered on them and be displayed next to each other, Morale on the left and Power on the Right. Ideally, I'd like to be able to specify the width and hight of each piece. I also plan to place the vitals on tip of my quick slots at the bottom center of the screen. I'd like the buffs / debuffs to be separate and stay in the upper left corner but be about twice the size they are now. Below I put a simple text representation of what I'm after for the vitals. The words morale and power won't actually display.


( 18 Faflaf 132/465 morale )( 459/459 power )

All possible apart from the Buff/Debuff thing.

I am waiting for a good vitals plugin to be developed!

Not possible with XML skins but I believe it would be with Lua plugins (I'm not good with Lua so can't tell you for sure). If it is it would take 2 Lua plugins. 1 for the vitals and 1 for the buffs/debuffs.
There are many vitals plugins in both in XML and a few in Lua but none that I know of that match what you're asking for.

I'm beating the Vitals plugin that is part of the TurbinePlugins with a big stick to get something I like. So far I've copied the Vitals plugin to create a new one and ripped all the buff / debuff stuff out. I don't have any of the resizing options added in yet.

I attached an image of what I've got so far. It doesn't have the lvl text in yet and I'm not happy with the font for the player name but, it's a start.

After I get the vitals to a good usable state I'll pirate as much as I can from the TurbinePlugins for the buff / debuff.

I think I got the morale / power bar to a point where I can shift gears and work on buffs / debuffs. Attached is an image of it. Still no sizing options.

Wow I like that. I wouldn't mind using that as is as I'm happy with FX for buff tracking.
Just so you know there's no way to recreate the vitals context menus using Lua vitals. If you want them you can't have the Lua vitals turn off the main one.
I did make a skin just to turn the main vitals into a small icon for the context menu. You can find it at http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...iniVitals.html

Might be possible if you set the icon size, and then set stretch mode to 2

Pengoros has a really nice buff / debuff plugin called Buffbars which I use for everything except displaying buffs and debuffs. I know that sounds stupid but I use it for it's quickbar and effect slider. You can check it out here. I'll post a comment for that plugin to see if Pengoros will add the option to display buffs / debuffs horizontally with only a text timer and no graphical timer.

My little vitals bar plugin won't be ready for any type of "public" use until I add in some sizing capabilities. Currently, I have no idea what it will do if I change resolution or change the overall UI scale. I am just learning LUA and the LOTRO API so progress on this will be slow (if anyone cares).

That's a bummer I can't snag the default context menu if the default vitals window is hidden. I will noodle on that a while and see if I can't find a creative solution to that. Although since I am not actually creating a new plugin but just moding the Turbine Vitals example plugin the menu problem may already be solved. I will have do some more digging.

I got my vitalBars plugin to a point where it is ready for others to test it out. I am wondering if anyone is interested in using this plugin. If there is interest I will upload it.

What is does
Displays characters level, name, morale and power bars. Used in conjunction with a buff / debuff plugin it can replace the default Vitals frame.

Features
  • Display character morale and power stacked on top of each other or horizontally side by side.
  • Independantly resize the width of the morale and power bars.
  • Optionally hide default Vitals frame.
  • Optionally displays character level, name, morale text, and power text.
  • Optionally displays morale and power text as percentages.
  • Integrated with UI lock/unlock for moving.
  • Does not have buff/debuff functionality. I use Pengoros' Buffbars for this.

Credit
This plug is a modification of the Turbine Vitals plugin by Rod so credit for the actual functionality of the bars goes to Rod. I copied quite a bit from Pengoros' Buffbars so credit for the following goes to Pengoros.
  • sliders and checkbox in options window.
  • saving and loading settings.
  • UI lock/unlock integration for movement.
