Renamer

Post by TeoTwawki » Sun Jul 24, 2016 7:28 pm

Updated January 5th 2018
What this does is use some functionality in ashita/windower to rename client objects in real time without dat mods.

Now hosted on github: https://github.com/TeoTwawki/renamer
version 1.2 download https://github.com/TeoTwawki/renamer/re ... er.1.2.zip
The latest can always be found on the release page on github.

You can use this to give names to objects that do not exist in retail on your private servers where they would otherwise display as "NPC" or rename the placeholders of that NM you are camping on retail, or give Ken in Bastok Markets a more descriptive name, like "Moron who agro's everything." ;)

Some future possibilities under consideration (no ETA):
  • Ability to add/remove lines from list file via addon commands.
  • Some GUI elements as a command line alternative or as enhancements.
  • Pet renaming. "Atomic Squirrel" Instead of "Carbuncle".
  • Conditional naming. "Proto-Ultima (Energy Screen)"
  • A cleaner/neater/simpler list file format.

probably not TOO much work, if it extended the "instantiateMob" stuff - although the targid would never be static, but that's only really an issue for bots :p

I asked you if you could do that for us awhile back, because of the event NPCs they keep shuffling in and out seasonally..

you might be able to do it already for NPCs, just that certain mob specific things (like aggroing?) didn't work way back when I implemented it. Not sure what the state of it would be now after the AI rewrite
