Default[Add-on] Topbar Information Overload

I overhauled my original add-on and gave it a proper name, hence this new thread.

So what's happened?
  • It uses the correct font now.
  • Everything can be toggled on/off using the in-game settings window - and much more!
  • Added your current Pax Romana amount (click it to show tokens).
  • Added your current coordinates
  • Added a 12-hour mode for the clock.
  • Colouring of latency according to your current latency.
  • Ability to hide the compass.
  • Set the transparency of the topbar.
  • Shows Black Bullions.
  • Shows inventory space status.
  • Shows friends and cabal members online.
  • Shows White- and/or Black Marks.
  • Add-on Manager for controlling add-ons (which support it), including the slot system for placing add-on's icons at the ready in the topbar.
What it still does:
  • Shows system time (coloured slightly blue).
  • Shows your actual latency as text.
  • Shows FPS.
NOTICE: Restart your client completely after installing this add-on. You should always do so when adding/changing .xml files.

Add-on Manager introduced with version 2.0.0
Version 2.0.0 introduces the new Add-on Manager. To read more about it and how to use it go to this post: http://forums.thesecretworld.com/sho...&postcount=100

Version 2.4.2: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...oad_v2.4.2.zip
Also available on Curse (including the Curse client) and SecretUI.

Screenshot of how it can look:

Great job -Viper. With every new mod, you can easily see your skills increasing, and I definitely think you have an eye for elegant and functional user interface.

Keep it up!

Thank you, and I will.
Regarding interface it's basically down to time (and the fact that I hate creating options interfaces - it's just dreadful work...), but as time goes by everything should improve in that regard (Deck Manager specifically).
Right now I'm just really focused on getting functionality out there and not worry too much about making pretty options interfaces.

Please, it was 21 pages!

And for those going "wtf is he talking about?" I can say that I wrote a 21 pages long analysis of the TSW UI and how to improve it during closed beta.
I have been considering posting it here to give those interested a chance to see where I'm going with some of my add-ons that will come in the future.

I gave you the option to say no, so don't start whining about your own choice. :P

It's coming back to haunt me... *Shudders* Dark days are coming.

I am stupidly happy that you created this addon, -Viper. Found a small thing that you may or may not want to fix. It is a visual thing-- nothing addon breaking.

See the picture below. Red Arrow point to an extra and random decimal placement.

Thanks again,
