About SlideDown


Update - 22/06/13 - Fixed error where addon would stop working when zoned into another zone or instance. Please redownload and update.

This is a remake of the original SlideDown addon in an attempt to learn Rift addon making.
The addon originally was not working and the project was unfinished in early 2011. I tried remaking the addon and added a couple of new functions that will expand over time or till a better cooldown tracking addon is made.

Meanwhile you can try this one out for your cooldown tracking needs ;)


- Basic ability cooldown tracking bar
- Can be moved by left clicking and dragging (position resets after reload, still need some time to solve this - variables saving issue I guess)

- Can be locked in place by: /slidedown pos x y (where x and y is a number between 0 and 1, for example /slidedown pos 0.5 0.8 , will lock the bar as shown below. You can experiment with it a bit)

- Color Change of the bar is possible by: /slidedown color x y z (where x y and z are LSL color codes that can be found here: link )

- Can be position vertically or horizontally by : /slidedown horiz x (where X is either true or false, false for having it vertical)

- Icon slide way can be changed by: /slidedown flipped x ( where x is either true or false)

- Lock position: /slidedown lock x - where x is either true or false.

- Hide frame and only show time: /slidedown trans x - where x is true or false.


- When alt tabbing out of the game, ability icons might be stuck on the bar sometimes, simply reload the ui to fix it.


-v1.1: Bar resetting after reload ui (thanks Aledrea!)
- v1.2: Error on zoning
- v1.3: icons being stuck
- v1.4: added new slash command to hide frame.

Added new slash commands to hide frame and lock it.

    Some things I came across:

    I was downloading this addon from Curse thru the Curse Client and it gives the old addon, which doesn't work and gives errors.
    After downloading it from RiftUi it was fine and it even overwrote the old one  ingame.
    The 'old' one is still as a folder in my Rift addon folder. I will delete it tho.

    I was just on some banking char and tried the addon. (of course).
    She's a cleric so I tried the ability Torch of the Sun  (
    Casting this ability gives you a debuff called "Burnout",  that block Symbols from being reapplied to the target for a short time.
    It isn't coming on the cooldown bar.

    Further more this addon seems promising. Can't wait to try it on my main, but I'm gonna lunch first  :)

    Edit a day later: On my main, later that day, I disabled the addon pretty quick cause of errors and it is not working properly.
    I notice there is more response on the Rift forums than there is here.
    The things I came across are already pointed out on the Riftforum.
    But you might keep an eye on the addon sites too, cause not every body is reading the Riftforums  ;)

    Hey Yelina2, 

    That is fairly normal, as Burnout is a debuff that causes your buff being unable to be cast on the target. It's not a cooldown actually. It's a debuff preventing a buff placement, so it won't show up on the cooldown bar.

    I actually took care of the Burnout issue in my UI by using gadget's;Buffs and configuring it for all my cleric's buffs and debuffs on target. This way you get an icon or bar on the target frame and can see when you can reapply the buff.

    If you would be interested in checking out the UI, here is a link:


    Will be uploaded on Curse soon for easier updates, but project needs to be cleared by admins first (can take a while sometimes :>)



    The new files were indeed still activated as on the download here, as the admins didn't approve the new ones yet before. They did now so should be all good :)
