It looks like they added combat text or is this a Add-on?

Is this a addon or is this something new they added, in this video I see damage combat text as well as health/Stam/Majic numbers?

    Looks like a  add on similar to the one used in Entropy Rising the guys from Tamerial Foundry

    Yes an add-on. One of many that will be available immediately on release.

    Sweet, i'll actually be able to tell if my abilities are doing what they're supposed to now!  

     

    Don't really like all that stuff in the middle of the screen, so hopefully it can be moved off to the side somewhere.   Seeing mob HP bars as numbers is already a huge step.

    Eh,  I don't particularly like this one and how they handle some things.  I won't go into detail but I'll see what other add-ons there are.

    Floaty numbers + numbers and % in the bars is all I want or need. I'll be looking for one like that and *maybe* a DPS/HPS meter but just for my own use to tweak rotations. I've always hated the weanies in MMOs who get AOE abilites early and love to post their DPS in group chat after clearing a bunch of trash lol.

    I'm not a fan of floaty numbers myself, prefer to be watching the combat, not the numbers.  A chatbox where i can scroll back AFTER the fight and look at the numbers would work best for me.   Or just a log with a parser.   Used to using ACT for EQ2 (i know it's also been adapted for AoC and a few other games, if there is any kind of log agailable, i'm sure someone will make an ESO plug-in for it).

    Cool. There are add-ons already.

    How do they made it? Is there a tool for it?

    It's the same standard LUA add-ons that WOW uses. There has been a special sub-beta for quite a while for testers who also can program in LUA. There will be add-ons - probably from Curse - as soon as it launches.

    Yes this is confirmed even by Tamriel Foundry who themselves are already finishing up some mods we will hopefully see very shortly after release :-)

    There Is Always Hope!

    I never keep the floaty numbers turned on forever in games that have that option; I don't like cluttered UIs either.

     

    But I like the immediate feedback they give you...although a combat log, if done well enough - and this isn't always the case--can also give you the same feedback instantly. The only disadvantage is that the log is off in the corner and not right where you want to be looking - especially in more active MMOs.

     

    I like options even if I don't always use them. Last weekend I ran around for a while with "loot all" turned on for even less UI clutter... but I found myself constantly popping-up the inventory to see if I'd just gotten a blue or purple... after a while I just gave up and turned it back off :)

    I'm hoping for an addon to turn off quest markers in the game world.  Is this possible?  I'm not really knowledgeable on how to go about making add-ons and what the limitations are

    Add on's are my only hated feature of this game and the only reason i would see my self quit,  i have NEVER had the want to continue playing a game once the Addon's started rolling out.

    Addons is the worst idea implemented in TESO, It will only FORCE unwilling players to use certain addons to be competetive.

    The thing that comes to mind is WoW "whack-a-mole" healing and all associated add-ons, so I rather hate it too.

    Yep my wife and i actually quit cause of something like that, we were in a group and the healer said ' if you need buffs msg me with the first letter and my autobuffer with get you"....... left the group and /uninstalled.   Well that and i couldnt get into a raid unless i installed  some raid app. NEVER GONNA HAPPEN.

    This is why i believe companies should build everything needed to play the game INTO the game.     

     

    Of course if you release a game without something as basic as telling people their HP or a way to see how much they hit for, people are going to build external stuff. 

     

    As far as quitting because someone else wants you to do something... why does even matter to you?   Next thing you know some dumbass is going to say "my group rocks, you need to email me $20 to be in my group!", so what, i'm going to quit?  No, just group with other people.    It seems like there are plenty likeminded people that want to see numbers in game and just use abilities at random and hope for the best, you always have the option of grouping with them.
