Default Recommended Addons for effective teamplay

Ok all... I think the time is right to recommend addons for effective teamplay.

The core experience is good, but the addons will improve your experience and teamplay.

Essential
Non-Essential but helpful
  • New Eden Defender - Easy shard hoping ability.
  • ItemFilter - helps to find and get rid of those pesky 0 dura looted items you've broken.
  • ZoneInfo - TinyOnlineList triaged - shows who in your army is online in a tiny online list, as well as how many in zone... including a FING name (goes in hand with New Eden Defender in a fashion).



What is FING? - this addon can tell you: Funky Instance Name Generator
Can see it in use on Database and Fansite - Firefall - ThumpDumpDB.

** fing addon itself isn't required as it's built-into other addons such as the thumpdumpdb addon (collection only though) and ZoneInfo.

At this stage though if you download any addons affecting your UI. I suggest get it from forums and use melder, as it is built to modify the core Firefall config to disable features so the other addons can work... unlike Curse it doesn't modify the existing UI files.

I use these... just browse the Addons forum and see what look promising, though can be abit hit and miss it's not a big deal to remove.

Default Essential!

Even if you get no other addons, install Melder and then install this below.
I sucked big time maximising distance/height and this thing removed that frustration.

Glider Graphical: one of the most helpful things ever; you can change the display type in Options/Addons, I prefer the lines.

oh, once Melder is installed, addons are easy: Just click the button that looks like this:

Keep in mind that the new patch (which I think is due 10 Oct) supposedly has a better glider reticule.

Some additional suggestions

* Released - [mod] 1714 - no more chat buttons! | Firefall Forums - Clean up your Interface a bit from R5's buggy and unfinished implementation (may be fixed next patch who knows). Use the "bugfixed" download
* Addon: PingMe | Firefall Forums - good for multi-squads, simply post in Squad or message the leader of other squads and can drop a shared waypoint on their maps. I haven't actually tried to use this yet. But it is installed.
* Beta Release - AltInv - Alter Inventory | Firefall Forums - click it - no explanation needed
* AutoBlur - toggles MotionBlur when gliding and riding | Firefall Forums - cosmetic but cool. Turns motion blur on ONLY while you are gliding / in a LGV / in a dropship - if you currently have it on, it will turn it off automatically when you exit one of those vehicles

This sounds brilliant, now we just need to consistently get more than 5 online at a time . . . .
