RP addons, fun for the whole family!

#1 » Post by Anarion » 05 Sep 2015 22:41

Just making a list of RP addons that I remember from retail. If anyone has suggestions or better links, I'll add them as they come.

FlagRSP2

Direct link. http://www.wowace.com/addons/flag-rsp2/files/237-r132/

Gryphonheart Items, for custom items

TotalRP

Roleplaying Helper 2
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i ... lper2.html

RPHelper is an addon that reacts to various events with sayings or emotes. While similar to SpeakEasy or spell macros, RPHelper is more robust. By being reactionary, it means your character can respond to things such as parrying, critting, gaining aggro, or talking to an NPC, without you having to be consciously aware of it!


MarySue
http://www.wowace.com/addons/mary-sue/

Features:

Prefix, Surname, and custom displayed title
Physical description
Multi-selectable RP status (in character, out of character, etc) and RP level (beginner, fulltime, etc) flags.
Doesn't use a custom chat channel
Extremely light on resources
Can disable inside of instances
Optional extended tooltip information


ImmersionRP
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i ... inued.html

ImmersionRP is a FlagRSP2 and MyRolePlay compatible Add On, which provides the user with the ability to supply additional descriptive text about their character and to set an "RP Status" such as Roleplayer, In Character, and Looking For Contact. ImmersionRP keeps to a strict design philosophy of intuitive interface design and minimal complication.


*Also, I've found this other addons that may or may not be usefull to a roleplayer:

CommonersQuest
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i ... .html#info

CommonersQuest allows players to give and receive quests from each other. It currently supports kill quests, item collection quests, pre-requisites, and item / money rewards.


Verisimilar
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i ... .html#info

Verisimilar is an AddOn that allows players to create quests, and attribute them to NPCs, both real, and fictional. Other players with the AddOn can then connect to the creator's "session" and complete those quests. It currently supports kill quests, and goto quests, with additional support through its scripting interface. Apparently it's working! It now also supports item objectives with items you can create and even add to mobs as loot they can drop.

RPButton
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/i ... utton.html

RPButton is a Button to hide most of your Interface, except chat, which remains visible.

From Waterbucket

* Story Teller addon: it lets you output blocks of text in any channel, mainly used--you guessed it--for storytelling purposes. Although abandoned in the middle of WotLK, it was still working during 3.3.5, albeit with some errors.

* Identity: not an RP addon in a strict sense, still useful in some cicrumstances. It can output nicknames in any private and some public channels.

Myroleplay existed, but its apparently very hard to find a working version earlier than Cata 4.0. I had a 3.3.5 version kicking around, but it wasn't entirely working. You had to use a chat command to view others' profiles, and it wasn't compatible with the addons OP has listed like it is today. The MRP button did not display, even when it was the only addon installed. The code existed , it just, wasn't working properly, and I don't know the language enough to figure out why.

If you can find a version that works properly, definitely post here though.

Also worth mentioning that FlagRSP2 and Total RP don't appear to be cross compatible either. Maybe we were missing something, but we tested it out and could not view each others' profiles when one person was using FlagRSP and the other TRP.

Because of this, I'd suggest anyone interested in RP figure out which RP addon they want to go with, that way everyone is on the same page and can see everyone's profiles.

TRP is the bigger addon. IMO, it has too many features that just aren't neccesary, but the profile editor itself is better. You can change your first name, which for whatever reason was not possible with TRP2. For some this is not a problem, but for people who have Non-RP OOC names, FlagRSP2 didnt cut it.

FlagRSP2 is much lighter of an addon, only really having the profile editor/viewer, much like MRP today. I personally prefer this one, but in the end I was pushing people to use TRP due to the issue with first names I mentioned a second ago.

There was also someone who said they were working on an MRP imitation for 3.3.5 specifically for this server, but I do not know if they ever got around to it, if they still play, or if its still in progress. IF that ever comes to fruition, it would likely be a solid choice.

Edit: When I said I had to use a chat command to view profiles on the version of MRP I had, I actually meant that I had to go and keybind it. There was no working chat command that I saw. I'm sure most people don't want to have to keybind something that is unbound by default to view profiles.

@Virunus, I managed to find the version of MRP you have and tried to fix it, but it's really hard because of the LUA changes in 3.3.5. I got it to show the custom names and status in the tooltip, but I get too many errors from it. I think it's best to use another addon than this one, since we can't find any working version for WOTLK, although it was one.

I've found this other 3 addons that you guys might find usefull:
