The Party Status Window: TP DISPLAY!, by Keits

Well, my Samurai is lv58. I'm almost level 60. What is the one thing I want most? Is it AF? Is it a new job ability? No. Its a change to the Party Status Window.

I want that window to HP, MP, *And TP*. This would reduce the stress of my job 10 fold. Instead of watching the text fly by looking for TP calls, I can just glace at the party window and see who is ready to launch a skillchain with me.

I would love to see this implimented, as it would reduce chat window spam and help skilled samurai work accross the language and skill barriers a bit better (as well as help anyone involved in skillchain or magic burst).

That is a VERY good idea, It would help every melee our in this game along iwht the mages for the MB. As a thief I always have to ask and be ready right when i have tp, so I can Sneak Trick Viper. Having the tp dispayled would be a great help.

Very nice idea. I hate firing off my TP macro every 10 seconds.

This would help things flow a little more smoothly.

All we ask for is just a number. Theres room to the left of the mp bar for the TP percent. This would make chaining so much easier and lessen the TP spamming.

maybe Also an option that would be macro-able to make your TP gauge flash? (until used) maybe turn green or something? almost like a "TP ready!" but it would just flash, much easier ^^, plus you can't miss it unless your not paying attention

Yes, yes, and yes.

This idea is absolutely perfect. If SE is really monitoring this forum like they say, then they can't help but want to implement this, the idea is genius.

I am so bumping the s*** out of this.
This is very nessesary.

In every Final Fantasy game you knew where your characters wer in regards to thier 'Limit Break', and there's enough forced grouping to keep the old FF Feel... we should be completeing the circle and have our TP bar.

how about:
allow you to turn off your mp bar,
and replace it with your tp bar.

it would have to be a different color.
(cant remember what color the MP bar is right now,
if its blue or green, but make it the other one)

and yes with the flashing @ 100/200/300
(maybe how fast its flashing is the level.
100=slow pulse
200=blinking
300=rapid blink)

this wouls be perfect for those war or ninja that only have 4 MP due too some ring or something.

ok, that was my $.18

OMG! This is SO needed in this game! It would reduce:

a) Lag
b) Spam
c) Number of macros Melee's have. Say your a PLD (I can't gauruntee this, I'm not one) and you need macros for Abilities, Weapon Skills, Magic, and then one for a TP report. No telling how many that is. I, as a monk, also would greatly enjoy this so I can actually have room for my next Ability/Weapon Skill.

There's probably more, but this is DEFINATELY needed!

Personally, Id prefer a Number over another bar. The bar is arbitrary and takes up space. A simple percentage (with the posibility of automatic or command flashing/glowing) is more than enough for me.

Even as a Whm I applaud this suggestion. It would cut down party hotkey use making other information easier to see. If tp details were visible on the party bar I'd like it made just a shade larger. Maybe I'm a bit blind but after hours of xp I find it hard to see, especially that poor f6 guy ;)

Ok ok I'm still loving and thinking about this idea. Upper left hand visible Bars for all to see Mob's TP and Party's TP BARS. If your a Mage you can turn yours off.
