    Hey folks,

    since I'm considering to switch from my current job to becoming a game programmer I would like some suggestions on an addon you would like to have. Nothing too complicated please so I can start it easily but if there's something you would like an addon to do for you I'll look in to it and see if I'm able to make it. It might take some time to figure out but once I get the hang of it I should be able to produce some more advanced things over time.

    Make one that predicts who will get chainhealed depending on target (check people in range of first person, lowest health, repeat).

    Gogo.

    Sounds doable. Do you happen to know if the game checks range and health when the cast starts or when it lands?

    nvmd.. thinking of making something in the lines of a little box with the 3 or 4 names that the chainheal will hit which refreshes every 0.1 sec during the cast and see if it's possible to predict the amount of how much the heal will hit for on each target.

    can't wait to be able to make this :D

    Its calculated when it lands merlin, but its handy to see a prediction of who'll be healed by it when you start casting.

    any chance you can make a litle bit of code that when i make a raid or become leader of a raid it automatically sets loot to ML, not very exciting compared to Jaz's i know :<

    To get the real professional-game-programmer experience, Jaz should be asking when it'll be finished already. And changing what he wants it to do.

    The only "problem" i'm running into atm is that I don't know yet (and if it's even possible) to get your target's position and if you're able to check a range radius on anything other then yourself. Will do some research and see where I end up ;)

    Improving the auctioning addon would be nice btw, but can imagine a fresh project is more interesting.

    I have a tiny very simple request.....

    When I'm herbing I'd like to get a message on screen and maybe a sound played whenever I get a Frost Lotus. Makes it all that tiny bit more exciting :)

    I would like an addon that Colour Codes my Dresses with my Pets,

    I shall give u the list of pets and dresses you are able to use, and u can update as i aquire more.

    If you colour code it incorrectly you shall be given a lecture as to why that pet does not go with that outfit, and told to recheck every dress/pet match you have made.

    you have Exactly 2 days starting from Now!

    Good Luck! <3 <3 :rolleyes:

    I'm a pro at it. Give me an hour and i'll start complaining why the developer is late, despite giving him 2 days
