Yes, this was discussed for some, but still no clear ideas/requests.
Currently CT_RaidTracker is the only option raidleaders have to have any records. Also you cant find ANY addon wich loads longer and so heavy. So i would ask, maybe any of the pro addon writers ( :) ) here planning to make this?
Just simple loot tracker!
1) Date of the raid
2) Raid memebers
3) Loot (+who looted what)
thats all! For now, we (poor raidleaders) have to torture our computers with CT_RT(wich is buggy too) or sit with a pen and piece of paper :( Hard work....
Ah, this would be wonderfull.
Currently we use Raidtracker to record who joins and leaves the raid with the time because we need the info for our dk-points.
A clean addon which records
- raid date
- time when the raid beginns / end (the own joining / leaving time)
- raid place (would be nice, but when I can enter a note to a raid, it's ok)
- members of the raid and their joining / leaving time
- the loot (no grey or white items)
- who gets the loot
but, the thing I ever wished for the original Raidtracker: an easy way to access the data after the raid.
Excellent would a list: NAME JOINTIME LEAVETIME (CLASS) [sortet by name]
or, NAME JOINTIME LEAVETIME (CLASS) [sortet by class, then name]
Currently (with CT_Raidtracker) I close WoW after the raid, use a perl script to extract the data and manually pick out those people where the join / leave times differs from the raid start / end time. Then I manually sort the people by class before I can give points for the raid.
So what really needs to happen here, we need to monitor anytime we join an already existing raid, or we create a raid and watch who is there at any given moment. Perhaps have it update the list every five minutes or so, and have a place for a waitlist.
Im currently using CT_Raidtracker modified by Freddy, so I can more or less automatically import raid data in EQDKP. It is not at all the best way to do it, because of my guilds DKP system and that CT_Raidtracker is so big and heavy.
What I would LOVE to see in an addon like this is:
Track date and place for raid
Track join / leave time (and join time again, if someone comes back to a raid
Register all loot (decided by rarity) and note boss that dropped it (or trashmob) looter and time looted
Some way to identify if the item was disenchanted or goes to guildbank (and thus not looted by a char)
Data saved in a format easily used outside WoW (html parser or similar)
Then I could make a php-script that parses the data, and shows me an overview of the raid. Who was there the entire raid, who left prematurely, who joined late. Who looted what, and when. Maybe even make an EQDKP plugin that imports the data directly. Currently the modified version of CT_Raidtracker can generate an XML string ingame, that can be copy-pasted into an EQDKP plugin. But all this ofc requires someone to make this plugin if something similar were to happen with AceRaidtracker :)
But a fully automated importer like this is bound to fail, or not work fully as you want it. Call me insane, but I really want to have control over what it imports, instead of having to manually edit the data afterwards.
Then its a piece of cake to update our dkp in eqdkp :)
It would be nice. My guild uses Freddy's modifed CTRaidTracker for DKP, but it's ugly, clunky, and doesn't even work very well...
Need to record who received an item, and record a DKP cost on the fly for that particular item. (We use open bidding, with no set item costs.)
On this one I disagree, this is the work for DKP management addon. RaidTracker just must record who/what/when.
If you aren't going to record the price the item went for, why even record who received it? Neither piece of informatiion is of the slightest use without the other. To my mind, the point of a raid tracker addon should be that it will track what happens so that you have the required information to calculate DKP at the end of the raid.
Edit: Of the slightest use to us, and other guilds who use similar systems. As I explained in my first post, we use open bidding to distribute items.
