FTC Version 0.27 Released

FTC 026 adds some neat new features.

FTC 026 adds some neat new features.

Hey everyone, I wanted to post a quick note announcing the release of Foundry Tactical Combat version 0.27. This is not a major new release, but does include some new functionality that I hope you will find helpful as you are continuing your adventures throughout Tamriel!

Below is a short list of the changes that you can enjoy in this new version:

Download Foundry Tactical Combat – Version 0.27

  • Added potion tracking to buffs and alerts. Potions will now generate a buff icon indicating their duration and trigger an alert when the potion slot becomes once again available.
  • Added a mini DPS tracker which updates live in combat to display your outgoing damage-per-second, outgoing healing-per-second, and incoming damage-per-second. The mini-meter is movable when you unlock the positions of FTC elements.
  • Improved the pop-out damage meter, giving a breakdown of abilities used in combat, their observed critical hit percentages, the total damage they dealt, and their relative contribution to your effectiveness.
  • Added an option for altering the damage tracking timeout threshold. This threshold adjusts the number of seconds which may elapse without the FTC meter considering a combat encounter to have ended. This is helpful for certain boss fights which have mid-fight roleplay, scripting, or mechanics which require players to hold damage for several seconds.
  • Included some new extensions to the buffs and alerts system, this time Nightblades got some love with Refreshing Shadows and Shadow Barrier both getting specialized buff tracking.
  • Added an option to disable the default target frame.
  • Removed the “mini character sheet” component from FTC. While this was a nice idea to do for an addon, it’s not integral to the in-combat experience which FTC seeks to improve. I would like to delegate the responsibility for this sort of enhancement to other addon authors, so FTC will not focus on this for a while.
  • Fixed a number of bugs and minor glitches.

    In 0.26, if I turn off your frames, there is no current/max values in the normal frames anymore, no more % either and the target bar completely disappears I don’t know where. I tunrned off all other addons see if there was a conflict, but nothing changed. Combat analysis is wonderful, but I had to go back to previous version because of the target frame issue.

    If you are going to keep messing with target/self frames, I suggest separating this from the combat text, that will save a lot of headaches. Just my opinion, thanks for the wonderful addon.

    @Atropos Have the issues for abilities that scale with duration been fixed? Is it possible to add a different tooltip for each rank of these abilities, or is that not feasible?

    I had to go back to version 0.24, the missing health bar without hp % is really unforgiving.

    It was not really the long-term vision for FTC to overhaul the default unit frames. There are lots of nice addons out there which improve the default frames. I’m hearing a lot of complaint, however, from people who used to use this feature of FTC. I suppose I’ll consider adding it back in.

    I have an issue with this latest version.  After any ui function, like map, inventory, etc,  and only when this version is active, I am left in a “Free Mouse Look” mode.

     

    I bring up my map a lot while moving, and this throws me off because when I close the map, I can no longer use my mouse to direct my character, until after I do something when cancels the free look mode.

    @Atropos how do you open full details of the FTC Damage Statistics?

     

    EDIT: Nevermind! I found the answer in my key bindings.

    Until the day we die.

    why did you remove the texts from the default life-bars?

    That was a cool feature.

    This is a bug that has been happening frequently since 1.0.4. I recommend doing a /reloadui or alt+tabing quickly.

    hmm.    For me, the only this happens only when I have FTC .26 installed, and it happens 100% of the time in that case.  When I remove FTC or downgrade it to .24, it never happens on my system and I have never experienced it before or after 1.0.4.

    While I appreciate your suggestion, it would help me at all.   It is a problem for me while moving, ie holding down the ‘w’ and popping in and out of the map.  I check the map and don’t miss a beat on moving.

    I would like to go back too… Unfortunately I don’t have the old version anymore. Where can I get it?

     

    TIA

    @Atropos   Thanks so much for all your work on this.  This addon is a must have for me.  Can you please give me directions to enable the full details of the FTC Damage Meter?  You have a picture displaying a  window showing the enemy, length of battle, total damage, DPS, each ability used, total healing and incoming damage etc.

    I cannot seem to get this full detailed display for this feature and would love to use it.  What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, I registered just to say this… removing the HP numbers/% was really a mistake… The default in-game unit frame was really nice, it was missing just the numbers…

    I was looking for a replacement, since you removed it, but sadly there are no nice addons :(.

    I really hope you will change it back.

     

    Thank you for your hard work on this addon.

    I agree, for those, who like the default bars (with numbers/% on it) it is really a step back. I’m really enjoying this addon, but the custom frames makes my centre of the hud/reticle too crowded vertically.

    Thanks :)

    If it is possible could you add in an option to toggle the % on the bars? that should keep most people happy

    .26 is fantastic, thank you. I continue to recommend TFC to my guildies as a must-have addon.

    As a side note, I did not see the issue with the % on bars? Is this only if you set disable = OFF for frames ? Either way, I had no complaints or issues after 3+ dungeons runs Sunday and numerous quests.
