A raid add-on that borrows heavily on WoW's "need/greed" window system to communicate loot interests in raid. Loot officers receive a window displaying raid choices. Not everyone must install, as sending a properly formatted whisper will count as communicating loot interest for the lazy mod-hating raider. It does more than that too, and you can drink it all in from the docs. Its major function is to work as a loot interest communicating mechanism, and the level of that interest, and make announcing winners easy. It does not touch on dkp or loot-specific decision things, so that it can "plug-n-play" with any guild's given loot system (hopefully).
Its open source and I encourage the community to play with it. Unfortunately, I have not been given SVN.
Glad you like the idea. My guild has gone "live" with it for the second week now. No bug reports yet, but plenty of feature requests, including a built-in cell phone messenger and an e-mail client w/ calendar. Well, not really :) I was actually gone all last week so I'll have to get some screen shots now that I am back (the greens in ragefire chasm arn't very inspiring, even if just as good for functional demonstration) and stick them in here. Somehow, epics in those windows are probably more encouraging for the average WoW player.
ORLIC has gone through some hard times in 2.4 due to some very subtle changes in itemstring changes (especially items linked off of a corpse window instead of a chat window, as there are refs to unique mob IDs, I assume for GM debugging use).
I'm re-adapting the mod, and should have a fix out some time this next week.
If you actually want to change the keywords to something different, but keep a double-level interest option, well, umm..... hmm. Maybe I can add that in my next release.
That's exactly what I am looking for -- we use "ten" and "half" bids to indicate interest level.
Also, a few more suggestions for you. It would be nice not to require linking the item if the officer/loot master in question was only taking bids on one item. In other words, a loot master would open bidding on a specific item. If he's only taking bids on that one item, then any tell of "ten" or "half" would register a bid for that item. Ideally the response to the user would be "You have placed a half bid on [Item Foo]".
Or, if the master looter has bidding open for multiple items, a bid of "ten" would instruct the user to specify the item. "Multiple items are available for bid. Please specify the item in your bid via half/ten [Item Foo]".
yikes, I've been busy. I also didn't think there would be the level fo interest, or even usage :) Getting testers in my guild is like pulling teeth, so its been slow. You'd think after all I've done for them? :)
Anyway, put in some configurability and finally got some network tests going and it bugged, so no uploading that version to wowace :) I'll take a few more cracks at it this week and see if I can get it sorted out.
