Icesnake’s Add-on Emporium: WoW 5.0.4 Segment 7; Quest Progress Sound and QuestSounds
This is The Icesnake, and this time I’m going to tell you about a couple of add-ons that play sounds to notify you of quest progress and completion.
Firstly, however, I’d like to respond to the caller who let us know that Carbonite is being updated. Indeed, that’s true; however, the updated version is not (yet) available through Curse, and it still relies on Cartographer for a lot of features, notably gathering profession routing. Cartographer was last updated in April of 2009, more than 3 years ago, according to WoW Interface. That means that Carbonite is going to remain woefully outdated until the devs switch to a current gathering system, at the very least. Thus, I’m looking for Carbonite function replacements.
QuestSounds is a very small, simple add-on that prints chat messages and plays in-game sounds for completing quests, completing an objective or a quest, or gaining progress on a quest objective. There’s no GUI; all the settings are handled in the chat window.
Quest Progress Sound does have a GUI, and uses a selection of Ogg files for the various sounds, making it pretty easy to change what it sounds like. A clever user could probably extract the sounds from Carbonite, or from WoW itself, to customize the results. The Curse page seems to indicate that it will also play for other members of your party if they have the same add-on installed.
