The Party Status Window: TP DISPLAY!Follow

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 ;)

ONCE AGAIN, AWESOME IDEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This one BETTER get read and put into effect!!!! ASAP!

dont tell me about filters either, cuz i use a few but i want to read all that stuff, i just dont want TP calls flying past me during the heat of battle. Thats a important thing related to skillchains and it should not be done manually. You should always have your fellow pt members TP displayed in their status bars. Excellent call original poster!

I am now throwing my vote into the box... *throws* ...okay, there we go.

Excellent idea, and I think both a % to the side or a bar similar to HP or MP would be fine, either way it would be an excellent addition.

I would love this added even though I'm a blm. It would help tremendously in preparing for magic bursts, so you know when you can use a nuke, and when you need to save it for the burst. So please, please try to add this in, it would be incredibly helpful.

Great Idea! Could have used it last night when we were constantly spaming Tp macros! I like the bar idea, but if space is an issue, the percent number would be fine!

EXCELLENT!!! i'm a SAM and I wanna know the TP of my SC mates all the time. With this all i need is to glance at the bar and i'm done! GOOD IDEA!! hopefully squenix is monitoring this and see it and discover what a fool they've been by not having it in the begining.

We could also include an option to not include the TP bar for anyone with mp. That includes war/whm too. Its too hard and space consuming to monitor 3 bars. So mages can have the option to take it off ( who wants mage TP anyway).

But for melee, all melee must have the TP bar on at all times.
This will prevent those idiots that just like to annoy ppl by taking it off and refusing to put it back on. Or those ppl that turn it off and don't know how to turn it back on.
The TP bar will replace where the MP should be.

That way, there will be no extra space needed for the TP bar whatsoever.

I like the idea A LOT but I have mp and use it and am part of skillchain when I DO have TP (after all no reason why Paladin can't get in on the action - especially with a Samurai getting mad TP). Not sure how it would work to lose my MP bar - maybe another solution?

Boricua, I never said that ppl with an MP bar will go away. I meant that the people with MP can make thier TP bar go away, not MP. Only people with MP can have that option. Of course they can choose to not use that option.

*Bump*

Even though I play WHM I want to bump this! It would cut down the amount of TP-reporting messages making it easier for WHM to see who has what status effects and whatnot.

Of course in conjunction with some way of reporting status effects to party members aside from in the text box, it would be perfect!

I agree yet again! We need this! It would be so much help in a party... It would help organize the party and skill chains... I wouldn't have to sit there spamming my tp going ok my viper bite is ready like every 10 seconds until somebody finally sees it and responds...

Perhaps instead of a TP meter for every party member just have a dot or something that indicates that the party member has 100+ % TP.

here's what i was thinking, unless they plan to increase the size of the party window to allow for a bar.

Concept Screenshot

Tirrock is not my character, i took this screenshot from his website, and altered it. Being at work, i don't have access to my screenshots, so i had to use someone elses. I only put minimal time into it, but i tried to match the colors as close as i could to the ones used for health display. the shadowing in photoshop doesn't allow me to make correct shadows around the characters, but ideally, each character would be outlined in dark gray, making it much easier to see. what do you guys think?
