EventLookup is a small search tool for zone events and related achievements.
Currently if an event starts, you get a notification in the chat (The event 'EventXYZ' has started in 'ZoneXYZ'). However, if you click on the notification, you only see the description for the event, but not if there is an achievement for the event which you might still need.
EventLookup was written to bridge the gap between the zone event name and the related achievement. For this purpose, the addon provides a single slash command (/elt). For example, if you see the notification above, you can type
and the addon will display all zone events it finds with the term eventxyz in the event name, along with the information if you have completed the related achievement. Note that it is enough to type part of the full name! The screenshot shows some sample output (in the chat box).
Typing /elt without arguments prints a short usage instruction. Right now you can use the following parameters:
-m (events with missing achievement)
-p <plane> (events of a specific planar type, for example Life, Death, Fire, ..)
-z <zone> (events in a certain zone, for example Droughtlands)
<searchText> (a search text that can be part of the event name, the boss name of the event, or the related achievement).
/elt -m fire
=> show events which have the term "fire" in their name (or the event's boss name, or the event's achievement name) for which you don't have the achievement completed.
/elt -z drought
=> show events for zones which have the term "drought" in their name (so, this will be only droughtlands).
/elt -p air
=> show air related zone events
NOTE: The addon currently only works in the english client. Localisation is prepared, but I need players with clients in the other languages who can provide me translations for the event and boss names.
This addon uses LibGetOpt (by seebs) for the argument parsing. Thanks for that excellent library!
- added a missing event name

- localisation for german and french clients should be complete now. Please let me know if you find any translation mistakes.
