About RareTracker

RareTracker is my take on a rare-mob hunting addon.

If you are in a zone with Rare mobs, then RareTracker will display 2 things.

1. A window listing rare mobs, distance to their spawn point and an arrow showing COMPASS direction

This window can be moved by dragging the title bar around whilst holding the left mouse button.

Clicking with the left mouse button on the darker green MODE: line, will toggle between Available and ALL modes.

Left clicking on any of the elements (arrow/name/range) will toggle the inclusion of that named mob from the
list. This can be used (along with Available mode) to only show the ones you are still interested in finding.

Right clicking on any of these elements will toggle the coloration of the entry. Useful for marking you've visted that location.

In ALL mode, the excluded ones are shown, but their name is coloured Red - they can be clicked to toggle
inclusion status as normal.

If you RIGHT click the MODE: line, it will show a red bar with 2 labels - NAME: and RANGE: - moving the mousewheel
up/down over these labels will cause the textsize used in the tracker to change.

2. A small round minimap icon. If this is in black/white it can be dragged around by holding leftmouse button. Right clicking will change it into a color icon. Left clicking the coloured icon will switch between green/red states. In red state, all other UI elements are disabled and hidden.

3. An icon showing a white diamond on a red, green or gray background.

If it is black/white it can be moved by dragging it around, whilst holding the left mouse button.

Right clicking will toggle between locked (red/green) and movable states (gray)

It can be resized by using the mousewheel up/down whilst hovering over it.

The icon will have a green background if there is a macro associated with it, or red if there is not.

A macro is built and added to the icon for all rare mobs that appear in the tracker and are within 300m of your current location.

The icon can be left-clicked to activate the macro that is associated with it.

There are a few /raretracker commands that can be used:

    /raretracker background - toggles display of gray background
    /raretracker text - toggles text glow effect
    /raretracker reset - to reset locations of buttons/windows.

+ Updated layout of tracker so that it isnt quite as long! 16 rows per column
+ Added an autohide option + autohide timer slider. If active the tracker will disppear after X seconds, and reappear when you click its target button

+ Added NT rares - locs from :
+ FR/DE/RU translations from the zone achievements - hopefully they are right!

+ Bugfix for ppl not using Docker and attempting to use the config button

+ Left-Clicking on the direction arrow sets up a waypoint
+ Right-Clicking on the direction arrow clears a waypoint
+ Added an icon to the RareTracker header bar. Clicking it brings up a list of rare mobs, and you can add/remove them from the tracker here. The list is kept short and can be scrolled with the mouse wheel.

+ Fix an error that v04 introduced! Oops.

+ Fixed error when trying to unlock/move the macro button

+ Added data export to MapPOI

+ Added /raretracker command line
+    /raretracker background - toggles display of gray background
+    /raretracker text - toggles text glow effect
+    /raretracker reset - to reset locations of buttons/windows.
+ Moved Lung Feeder into chronicle
+ Only show number indicators if there is actually more than 1 location
+ Hide button when in a zone where nothing is being tracked

+ Added Dendrome
+ Added some Russian translations
+ Added more possible spawn locations for several rares

+ Updated for the 2.3 macro change

+ Added suppressmacrofailures to macro (not that it does anything, but Trion may fix it one day!)
+ Updates for spawns (DL/Strange Mound [Enraged Scarab]; IPP/Swirling Tempest; MH/Nytami; EH/Plaguefang)

+ Switched to using /targetexact instead of /target
+ Finished up converting to the new Event system

+ Updated some locations, and added more alternates
+ You should be able to left-click on the tracker to hide/unhide entries once more

+ Fixes to libZoneChange
    - Fix for player changing zones by walking
    - Fix for logging in or /reloadui into a 'special' zone

Fix to libZoneChange

Fix for broken macro change

Updated some locations
Use libZoneChange for zone changes

Fixed a typo

Added minimap/docker button that will toggle display of Tracker windows. Grey - Hidden, Green - Shown

Prevented movement of diamond icon during combat
Reduced CPU load

+ Added French + German translations of mob names
+ RIGHT CLICK on tracker entry will color/uncolor the entry until you change zone (useful for marking youve been to that location)

    Do mice exist w/out scroll wheels ???

    I can certainly make an alert popup if people want that.

    There is no way for an addon to auto-target anything - are you sure the other addon does this? If so, I would love to know how!

  • #15

    yes hun it did, and yes i have been using a trackball since 1998! Lol, and it was called RareDar, can you make it pop up and alert like something found, raredar did

    I downloaded again and now the button shows up in docker but nothing happens when I click on it.

    EDIT: I was sure I was in an area where there should have been rare mobs but anyway, once I zoned it just popped up. It's been working just fine ever since. Thanks for this great addon!

    Are you somewhere it would normally show ?

    It hides itself in zones w/ no rare mobs anyway - if the docker icon is gray, it will also hide in zones that do have rare mobs.

    Going back to previous version, same problems and erros as Raejinfury.

  • #5

    Error: RareTracker/RareTracker_Main.lua:328: attempt to call upvalue 'string_format' (a nil value)
        In RareTracker / RareTracker_Main.lua
    stack traceback:
        RareTracker/RareTracker_Main.lua:328: in function 'BuildUI'
        RareTracker/RareTracker_Main.lua:663: in main chunk

    Getting this error now from the last update. If ignored - no mobs are shown in the tracker at all in any zones.

    EDIT: deleted and re-installed from curse client - and was previous version again 2.01r3 that works ok - tried updating again - same error - have reverted to old version for the time being.

    EDIT - 2.01r4a has corrected this issue

    I enjoy your addon. The best rare finder add on for rift.

  • #3

    Thank you for making this addon! There's just one thing. It would be great if the player could turn the menu off and on by him-/herself.

  • #2


    1) It should only be visible in zones that have Rare mobs - so if you are in a city or a dungeon or a raid, it should hide itself. And then when you are somewhere that has rare mobs, it should show itself. If it is not doing this, then let me know what zones it isnt hiding/showing in.

    2) The window is sized for the text! The icon is the height of the 2 text elements, and the window is the width of the longest named rare mob the tracker knows about (I dont like windows resizing themselves after I've placed them, since they often expand over something else!)

    It does take a fair bit of space - but if you set it to available (rather than All), and click off the ones you no longer need, then the amount of (vertical) space it needs does drop off quickly.

  • #1

    Valuable addon thank you.

    1) Slash commands? Cannot turn off or on in game!

    2) Resize the UI - how? (Not text, the actual UI).

    Thanks again.
