In quite a few videos ive watched Ive seen some really nice layed out warnings for teams to go to their clicking positions, that has listed names in order of their respective cubes. Is there an addon that does this, or is it simply a macro? It actually looked like a warning from deadly bossmods, or some modified version of it, but i have no experience in that field. Any help in the right direction would be appreciated.
I just made a macro with the compass direction of the cube and the name of the person clicking that cube. Each name/cube is on a different line so it is very easy to tell what is where and such. I also made one for the tanking and healing assignments so that we can easily get that assigned, set up, and so that no one can forget it.
This is a great mod.. The only trouble we had with it was getting people to understand which number was which cube... Something we can probably overcome with repeated use.
We had started and gotten used to using Compass directions and Numeric teams. (NW1,NE1,W1,E1,S1 and (NW2,NE2,W2,E2,S2)
So It was easy to say NE2 DOWN NEED CLICKER
Looking through your code, it looks like it would be pretty easy to modify it to use the above style compass labels in it's setup and announces... Is that a problem if I do that internally for our guild, (Keeping your name and everything else the same).
287 where you go to announce the names, you have the playername.. with a tiny bit more of lua, you could make this even better. How about checking the player's 'liveness'? This addon announces a Get Ready, with enough time to spare for a re-assign to occur. In other words, If I am on cube3B (to use your numbering), and I die to our MT accidentally letting mag turn a little and cleave me(dont ask ), your addon could when it did the announce for TeamB to get ready, detect I'm dead, and announce that too. 20 seconds is enough time for someone to quickly yell in vent a click assignment.
(TBH, because of the number of participants in a cube click is only 10, you could probably check the 10 names on both the A and B announces.. So in other words, If I was a B, and I died right after clicking, you could announce my death during the TEAM A GET READY. That would even give enough time to possibly assign them in the UI)
Anyways, this is a great addon, and I'd love your permission to tinker with it a little.

local teamrw = "Team " .. team .." - Get Ready:";
local teamraid = "";
for i = 1, 5 do
teamraid = ""; if i == 1 then teamraid = teamraid .. "Cube S ";
elseif i == 2 then teamraid = teamraid .. "Cube O ";
elseif i == 3 then teamraid = teamraid .. "Cube W ";
elseif i == 4 then teamraid = teamraid .. "Cube NW ";
elseif i == 5 then teamraid = teamraid .. "Cube NO ";
if team == "A" then
if (Team1_List[i] == nil) then
teamraid = teamraid .. "NOT SET";
teamraid = teamraid .. Team1_List[i];
elseif team == "B" then
if (Team2_List[i] == nil) then
teamraid = teamraid .. "NOT SET";
teamraid = teamraid .. Team2_List[i];
Adding an option how to call each cube (be it cube 1, NE or whatever) will help since I am pretty sure each cube got different names per guilds, and announcing death and maybe adding backup group to fill up for deaths (maybe even auto !) would be great
(Maybe I'm not just not interpreting those acronyms correctly?)
I can't speak for the poster but I do know that east in Spanish is "este" or "oriente" (although I was under the impression that this refers to the orient like china) and I'm assuming that it's similar in French and probably other romance languages as well. Just a language thing I suppose.
