Field Agent Locator AddOn  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.1.0.1
by: Software [More]
FOR NEWS, UPDATES, INSTALLATION HELP, ETC VISIT THE FAL WEBSITE.
http://seniorsoftwareengineer.wordpress.com/


Do not attempt to download addons through the TSW ingame web browser. Funcom does not support this with their web browser and you will most likely crash the game client.



The Field Agent Locator (aka Dungeon Finder) allows players to join a queue so other players know they are looking for a group. Players looking for a group are able to specify their role (Healer, Tank, DPS), the dungeon they want to do and the difficulty mode (Normal, Elite, Nightmare) and join the list. Players that are looking to fill spots in their group are able to browse the list and invite you directly through the locator interface!

This works across all dimensions!

This addon makes it much easier to find groups instead of being locked down in Agartha spamming the chat channel. Now you can go do your solo missions or socialize with friends where ever you want while looking for a group!

This is great, thanks for making it and keeping it updated.

One thing I would like to see, is a comments section when you queue up, so you can specify other miscellaneous stuff.

Incorporating into Topbar Information Overload?

The latest version of Viper's Topbar Information Overload is out today. It now offers addon plugins!

Was hoping you could work your addon into it to ease the lives of us users. ^_^

Sorry i'll explain in more detail.

Currently with this addon when you join the queue it shows only you and your role (although i know you plan on expanding it to contain stats etc). The problem i personally have is i 90% of the time play with a very close friend and we want to do instances together. Im sure there are many bf's/gf's, husband/wife combinations out there that do the same. So regardless of if we are grouped in game it will ONLY show myself in your addon. They could of course sign up seperately but the chances are we'd end up in seperate groups, which is what we are trying to avoid.

What i would like to see is additional drop down menu's appear when i go to queue up if the addon detects you are in a group with someone and you can add them if you wish, so it instead lists you AND your group mate(s) together in the window. This way people looking through will know that the two people are looking for a grp together rather than seperately. (Maybe just additional boxes to fill manually if the detection is not possible)


Hopefully that makes a bit more sense. I guess an easier way to look at it would be if you ever played another game with an automated LFG system - like WoW for example, when you signed up for the dungeon queue it found the relevant people for the group based on role, if you already had a dps and a healer when you signed up it would only look for a tank and dps.

I realise your addon is by no means automated or anywhere as indepth as the WoW one but it was nice to queue up with friends and be in the same group once the group got going.

Is there anychance you could make it work with fellow grp members? Maybe an option to list additional member(s) lfg so everyone can see it as a package?


Thank you again, also any donation links?
Thank you for the compliments!

I'm not quite sure what feature enhancment you are requesting. Can you explain it a little more?

I have not set up any donation stuff. Didnt really think about it.

I set up the donation option. It pops up whenever someone clicks the download button and is optional. Thanks for considering it!

This is interesting but I have to ask, because this worries me.

Are you, by making this, making it even harder for the people who don't use AddOns, by reducing the pool they have to group with?

if we try to send a message to player 2 (if we right click on him then choose any option), the option will be chosen for player 1 instead of player 2

this issue was affecting other panels as well such as guild panel (the addon is not the cause of the bug)

can there be a fix ?

Edit : i do not know if disabling sorting is possible, but i believe adding filter + disabling sorting will be a good solution, it wont solve the issue but it will prevent it from happening.
This has been fixed and will be included in the next release which should go out this weekend.

Yes the purple button should appear in the upper left area of your screen when you first load the addon. Click the button to open the window. If you click the ? button in the top right corner of the dungeon finder window it will show the sliders to place the button anywhere you like.
