Vanilla Consolidate Buff-Frames (VCB)

What is VCB?

Vanilla Consolidate Buff-Frames (VCB) is a smart system to manage your auras. The AddOn provides a lot functions to customize it to your tastes and adds a lot of helpful functions for a better overview, which is its purpose in the first place anyway.

What are the advantages with VCB?

  • A better overview for your auras due to consolidation
  • Never reach the aura cap because of useless auras that you don't need anyway with the Banning-System
  • Each frame is movable, independently from each other
  • Display even potential buffs, either grayed out or/and as number on the icon
  • Display more than 16 buffs
  • Customize the frames to your personal tastes
  • Nearly everything is customizable

Supporting

This is AddOn has become very huge and for one person a gigantic task.
To keep this AddOn Up-To-Date, performant, clean and bugfree, I need your help!
You can help in many ways:

  • Report Bugs, tell me how to reproduce them and improve everyones experience
  • Give your opinion about the AddOn and point out ideas in the forum threads (Nostalrius / Kronos)
  • Some localizations are still missing, and since some functions require this, it is an important task and deserves a lot of thanks. If you are a native speaker of following languages and willing to contribute to this project then copy this form and post it in one of those threads. (Nostalrius / Kronos)
    Following languages are still missing: Spanish(esEs), Spanish(Mexican)(esMX), French(frFR), Italian(itIT), Korean(koKR), Portuguese(ptBR), Russian(ruRU), Chinese(zhCN), Chinese(Taiwan)(zhTW)
  • If you play on Kronos you can donate Gold to Shino (on Alliance). By that I can invest more time in programming instead farming consumables.

Everyone who contributes to this will be mentioned in the About Tab of the AddOn for an permanent time!

Ideas


**Fender:**  
- Mirror consolidated buff frame -- DONE  
- Change order off buffs in the consolidated buff frame -- DONE  
- Change order in general -- DONE  
- Create an system to order buffs -- DONE  
  
**Moosic:**  
- Scale the whole module -- DONE   
- Change the buff border's color (red to gold/black(?)) -- DONE  
  
**Ayz:**  
- Let buffs and debuffs be movable independently of each other -- DONE  
- let the timers scale together with the icon-size, currently the timers are same size regardless of icon size -- DONE  
- option to show timers as example 0:24 instead of 24s -- DONE  
- Enable consolidated buffs for target debuffs - would be useful in raids for some classes if not all
  
**Hallonkaka:**  
- Option to have buffs/debuffs flashing then they just have a couple of seconds left, like the normal buffbar -- DONE  
- Make the frames less mushed when there's no buffs ([image](http://i.imgur.com/SRFLNH3.png)) -- DONE  
- Had some issues with trying to move the frame, but realized later that i need to click to the left of the icon to move it. so make the icon the thing to click -- DONE   
- One major improvement could be to make it really like retail and have a counter that shows how many buffs out of how many possible buffs you have. -- DONE  
- Example: you add the buff "Power Word: Fortitude" along with the class "Priest", so whenever a priest is in your group, it will show 0/1 if the priest hasn't buffed stamina. -- DONE  
- the visual part with grayed out icons for missing buffs when you hover over the icon is probably a bit harder (or just annoying to code) so a simple list with "Missing Buffs" would work just as fine. -- DONE  

Common Issues

1. You have to bann/add buffs in the language of your client. If you ban an buff in english but you use an german client for example, it won't work.
2. I get an lua error after installing it, what should I do. You probably had an version before. I addded a lot of new variables that you need to reload therefore follow the instructions carefully!
