TWINKS! - The first addon aimed at creating, gearing, and owning with twinked characters. Current version: 0.9.3c - Closed Beta Twinks! is an addon that has been in the works for a while and started out with helping people get into XP-on battlegrounds. It evolved and expanded, and it now does more than just that. It's still in development, but is slated to go into open beta next week. The addon will be regularly updated and is aiming to be the addon for twinks. The vast majority of the features listed below are fully completed and have been thoroughly tested, but more work and fine tuning is still required along with additional features to call it a "release ready" addon. The current list of features includes: XP prevention features. Leveling and experience is a twink's worst nightmare. This addon will ensure that never happens via a number of safety mechanisms. Zoning into any area with your XP on alerts you to the fact that your XP is on. Entering a dungeon with your XP on will teleport you out instantly, while entering a battleground with your XP on leaves the battleground (unless it's Warsong Gulch). In addition, when you are about to hand in a quest that rewards XP, you are alerted and unable to do so, to ensure hasty decisions don't accidentally grant you experience. Helping you enter XP-on battlegrounds with your XP turned off! If you are the leader of a group of twinks using this addon, interacting with the XP eliminator NPC queues your whole group after turning off your XP automatically. If you are not grouped, interacting with the XP eliminator NPC queues you solo after turning off your XP automatically. When your battleground is ready, the addon will help you turn off your XP and enter the battleground at the same time so you get in with your XP off. Helping you gear up. Twinks need gear. Sometimes the gear you see that is the best isn't blatantly labeled as "Best in Slot". This addon changes that by removing the guesswork. Having a predefined set of items for each level bracket (with a database list that's constantly being updated!), this addon will automatically change any gear you can't wear to "unusable" quality, epic items you can wear (that isn't best) to "rare" quality, and all gear that is "Best in Slot" will be clearly labeled with flavor text (to denote spec/role) and will be changed to "epic" quality. No longer will you wonder whether the gear in your bags is REALLY "Best in Slot". Event Alerts. An important part of twinks' gear comes from events such as the fishing tournament in Stranglethorn Vale, the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby, and Heirloom gear from the Darkmoon Faire. You will be reminded when these events are in session, along with things such as your completion of the DMF dailies for the day and turn-ins. Scheduled Game Alerts. Brackets host games on certain days at a specific time. When the time comes for your bracket, you will be automatically queued (unless your XP is on) and notified that the queues have begun. These dates and times can be manually modified and will be updated with the addon as well. At the end of an XP-on battleground you are disconnected. There's currently a bug that will trap you in the battleground for a whole 10 minutes if your XP is off at the end of an XP-on battleground. This addon automatically disconnects you to prevent you from being trapped. You can log back in and queue up again without a hassle. Warsong Gulch "Smart Mode". One of the most unique features the addon provides. In the rare cases that you fail to enter your battleground with your XP off, if your battleground happens to be Warsong Gulch, you will not be ported out! Instead, the addon will monitor the match and both flag carriers and disconnect you only when you are about to get XP! These scenarios include when your team is about to capture a flag, when the enemy team is about to win, or when the match is about to end. Premade Mode. Twinks like to host large scale battles versus each other in 10v10 (or more) premade matches. Unfortunately, Blizzard has made it so Wargames do not work if your XP is turned off. While this addon normally forces you to leave a battleground with your XP on, it will not do so if it recognizes that you are in a wargame! When you leave the wargame, it will alert you to turn off your XP once again to prevent any unfortunate situations (there have been very real accidents with grandfathered twinks leveling from such things). Pricing The addon will be subscription, character, or account based, with purchase options available at $5 per month, $15 per character or $30 per account. Each user will be provided with their own download of the addon, unique to them. While in open beta, the prices for a character are reduced to $10 per character and $25 per account, with the monthly subscription not yet available. If you choose a monthly subscription, it is valid for the whole account, and when it runs out, the addon will cease functioning for now. The character or account licenses never expire. It's early to say much about the future of the addon before it's release, but the possibility of a free version is very likely. Who would I be supporting? A college student who needs to pay off his loans. The Promise To promote the creation of twinks, the gearing of twinks, and to help promote the stay and activity of twinks through an actively updated addon. [HR][/HR] The above was written for a place where I will be selling the addon. As far as Twink Info goes, I'll be looking into making a lite version of the addon, particularly the features to help with Premades, Scheduled Games, and Events as those are more "need" features than "want" because of accidental leveling, and the difficulty of getting scheduled games together or gearing via DMF/STV/KFD. So don't completely freak out about it being a paid addon. I'm also still taking feature requests, but I think I have the majority of "want" features covered as well as the "need"s.
