1. How about an "ignore node" ability? Farming crystals is a pain with the bot going after 4 nodes as two of them only yield pigment or something useless. By being able to select ignore it would narrow the farming down to 3 nodes, two of which would yield crystals. Maybe just have it set a small circle of about 10 yalms across.

2. Is there any way to record the keyboard commands, or tether the commands to a waypoint? When farming cedar logs only 1 node can give agro and get you killed. If we could set the program to turn on stealth only in that area that would be awesome.

3. Another idea I just had while running your program: can we set those commands to perform keystrokes as nodes to ONLY do so at specific and specified nodes? Again, going back to the crystal farming you have to farm 3 nodes, making it a mere 66% chance of a keyboard command giving 2 more crystals per hit. Maybe a simple if then command: if x item = yes then execute y. If not do: selectable choice dropdown with an option that includes do nothing.

4. Can you increase the max distance in the targeting tab to more like 200 instead of 100? All my farming that can be done with a single hotspot works flawlessly. But, in the new expansions the nodes are so far spaced apart that it takes two, and the viperbot gets totally confused and flies in big loops to the hotspots going the longest way.

Sorry, but I keep having ideas as I watch my toons running around like madmen, collecting crystals so I can level my crafts after 6 years away.

1. Good ideas.

2. You can turn on steath in options and set the distance

3. Another good idea

4. Add better/more mesh so it goes the right direction

Pit,
After some more thought on how to improve things can you make hotspots without assigning numbers to them? The problem is that when doing zones with 6 nodes your program currently follows a set pattern of going from hotspot to hotspot in the same order, and can appear quite botlike due to this. If the program could just think of hotspots as a place to LOOK for nodes, as opposed to a place to GO look for nodes it would allow for a much less structured pattern. It would just check around each node to see if something popped. If it did head there and farm them, rinse, repeat.

This problem is exacerbated when utilizing a line vs circle approach, so the solution would allow for much more flexible and creative uses of lines to speed up farming, and look more humanlike.

I would also like to add, if possible, to work out the kinks with mounting a mount after farming a node. Every zone, every time I run a patrol I get an error message after farming that says, "Can not execute at this time", then the character runs off, sometimes never trying to mount again. I've gone over to a running patrol only to find myself dropped down somewhere because a flying route was run on foot.

If I missed how to put in some pause of 1-2 seconds after farming a node, but prior to running off to the next one, that would be awesome.

Is there a way to allow for commands to be given BEFORE each attempt at gathering? I ask as one great ability for each gatherer yields 1-3 additional items on the next attempt. That would have to be one command right at start (to bring the HQ rate to 100%), then one to add 1-3 items on the next attempt, then gather. Another use of the 1-3 items ability, gather attempt. So on, until all the GP or attempts are gone.

You can add a START FIGHT hotkey and it will press those keys BEFORE hunting. I explained it in detail in one of the announcement threads.

Is 64-bit and Dx11 support in the future? Having to run 32-bit and Dx9 right now to use ViperBot, and future-proofing would be nice.

I would love to see the obstacle path functionality added to the bot, this would allow us to create patrols that were much harder to identify as a bot and avoid issues like falling off platforms and ending up in the water. It could probably also be used to avoid the "running into the centre" issue with the Dolmen plugin.

can you add a feature to let the bot pause for relog, or for travelling from wayshrine? does this exist already and i missed it?

Thanks

@Polgara, not sure what you mean. If you are using the wayshrine, you can add a pause task that will pause. Is that what you are wanting?

Please get the bot working again for ESO.

Thanks.
