Unfortunately however, this mod is no longer being developed.. While it's working now thanks to some updates in the comments section on incgamers, I'm sure at some point it's going to quit working.. and I haven't been able to locate any alternatives.
Does anyone know of a similar mod? A simple tracking assistant that will keep track of people you see (for future reference), allow you to target them similar to how ICU works, and alert to a channel of your choosing? (self/party/etc)?
Actually Personal Sentry does pretty much everything mentioned here. Also you can control the bloat if you just look at the options and set it to save what is important to you. I would love to see something like this in the Ace community though.
Personal Sentry doesn't have much bloat IMO, atleast its never given me issues that weren't fixed. It does exactly what you want depending on your settings. I have mine set to only activate in Arena/BGs usually and it works 100% like the old ICU, caches enemy player names in BG's when you open the scoreboard and makes life much much easier.
- personal sentries "recently seen mobs" or "mob tracking" way of working uses loads more memory and brings up a constant list of pointless tracked entities. ICU only listed the mobs you actually selected to announce to group.
- ICU wasnt just enemies tracked, you could also announce to a group where a mine or herbs location on map. So any class could use the mod not just hunters and droods
- icu also wasnt bugged as hell :P
so pretty pls to all you ace2 mod gurus, pls make a proper low mem usage ICU replacement :)
TrackingInfo, it's on the SVN from WoWace.com, and it's as lightweight as it can get. However, it doesn't have any targeting functions, it just displays names und classes.
Just tryed it. Very nice, low memory usage and everything, real shame it has no targetting tho. I do alot of group questing and battlegrounds and its nice to be able to warn people of incomings quickly. I guess im gonna have to learn to type faster for the time being :D
So how hard is it to get the targetting working? ;P
EDIT: this mod actually borked loads of other things, got rid of it went back to ICU
Bumping this old thread, but that ICU link doesn't appear to have anymore active development than Personal Sentry does. What we need is an active project to switch too. For now though, PS still works fine for me. I need something to help me quickly target enemy players, that is mainly what I am looking for.
