Currently I would like to see an addon that would show the in small text on the icon of a spell or action the amount of times it can be used with the current mana(when no reagents required) or the amount of times you do it with your curent reagent count. Working with the default blizzard action bars. Nothing more nothing less.
I definitely love the idea. Maybe this could be my second self-made addon. Let me think about it while I cook and eat dinner. There is much that needs to be decided, like compatibility with CooldownCount and other such mods.
Ooo, how about a modular set of mods:
1. AceSpellCount - shows how many times you can cast based on mana or reagents on the button.
2. AceCooldownCount - shows how many minutes or seconds until you can cast or use the skill again on the button.
3. AceShortcutKey - shows the shortcut key for the button on the button (for non-base action bar...? or did they implement that in 1.7? I just second-guessed myself)
Anyway. All of these could be built on a base-line "Put a number/text on a button" with options to put them in any of the four corners or the center, with various sizes of text.
This way, people could put whichever information they want, wherever they want it! And it'd be so easy to do. And if people came up with new things to put there, it'd be easy to add, and people could pick and choose without fear of having two things put numbers in the same place.
I dunno, it seemed like a good idea when I started typing it, then I realized there's really only 3 things to display...but having it be 3 mods, with the options of where/how to display them would make it totally awesome. I think. :)
After I am done writing a instant attack damage information in tooltip addon im going to have a stab at my idea myslef
In my mind it is setup like this
A core module creates 5 hook points for text on every normal blizzbutton :
(possibly overwriting the blizzard keybinding and count labels)
then additional modules include text you could have on those text hooks.
Percentage of mana
Percantage of current mana
Spell cast count
Cooldown (hey a mod that display's cooldowns in a normal text instead of the flasy stuff)
(possibly more modules to come as i think of them)
