Buffs Movable Party

Party COE

This plugin is an enhanced version of a default plugin that shows the Convention of Elements cycle for yourself and other party members. Movable, resizable, multi-element countdowns, toggleable audio countdown cues, multiple display modes, countdown borders and boxy countdown clock face visual style.

Features Explained

The drag and resizing features are enabled through the Movable Plugin System when you turn on its Edit Mode. If you move the COE display close to or onto other players' portraits in the party portrait area, it will automatically snap to its associated player portrait position when you turn off Edit Mode. Otherwise, you can freely position it elsewhere on the screen.

You can click to select or deselect elements for countdowns by clicking the element's icon when you are in DisplayMode.All and not in Movable Plugin System's Edit Mode. Multiple elements can be selected simultaneously, but by default, only the highest element is automatically selected. Automatic highest element selection also takes into consideration the elements of the skills on your bar, but you can click to deselect if you want.

It remembers other party members cycle positions so that their COE displays are still visible and cycling even when they are out of range.

You can also flag the audio cues to fire for another party member instead of yourself! Get the countdowns to each selected element announced to you even if it's not your CoE by pressing Ctrl+V (configurable) while hovering over that player's portrait or CoE display. (Text-To-Speech is an option but it gets desynchronized easily because it fires synchronously.)

Multiple display modes can be toggle through with a configurable hotkey (default: ~)
  • DisplayMode.All - shows all class elements
  • DisplayMode.SelectedOnly - shows only the selected elements
  • DisplayMode.ActiveSelectedOnly - shows only the selected elements, but only when they are the active element
And the new countdown borders and boxy countdown clock face visual style is my way of retaining the original presentation but make the countdowns a little more visible :)

Customization

The default values for ToggleAnnounceHotkey and ToggleDisplayModeHotkey are set on lines 184 and 185 respectively.

The starting display mode Mode is set on line 54.

TurboHUD's default ConventionOfElementsBuffListPlugin is disabled by default, but you can leave it on by changing DisableDefaultPlugin to false on line 55.

If you don't want giant countdown numbers when make icons big, you can set ScaleFontOnResize to false on line 56.

Installation

Download (Last Updated July 30, 2021)

Put the folders in the archive into your TurboHUD directory. The files should be in the following locations when you're done:

TurboHUD \ plugins \ Razor \ Party \ PartyCOE.cs
TurboHUD \ sounds \ 1.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ 2.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ 3.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Arcane.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Cold.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Fire.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Holy.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Lightning.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Physical.wav
TurboHUD \ sounds \ Poison.wav

It requires the Movable Plugin System to be also installed. If you have the Menu Plugin System installed, it includes Movable Plugin System already.

Then (re)start TurboHUD.
