GreenRange

2 - Regarding Configuration and SavedVariables

Proposed Enhancements

  1. Removal of saved variables from GreenRange.
  2. Localization of the options for OOR and OOM colors to the top of the core .LUA file.
  3. Lack of in-game configuration system.

Explanations

  1. As it stands, there are only two variables to be saved in GreenRange: The RGB values of OOR and OOM colors. While I understand that the look-up times for the saved variables, and the file space that they occupy are nearly negligible, your add on boasts optimization where ever it may be found, and I believe that this change would be positive in the spirit of the add on.
  2. For the average WoW player, it is not practical to have to edit .LUA files to achieve functionality, but as it stands your in-game configuration options require RGB color values as decimals; any player willing to convert their RBG color values to decimal likely have the knowledge and motivation to open the core .LUA file, and amend the color options.
  3. The description for this add on mentions you wanting a more full-featured in-game configuration system. I think it is obvious what my post drives at, but to reiterate: it seems next to useless to have a full in-game configuration system, or even a partial one, for so few options. Not to mention "Green"Range should be maintaining a lightweight, optimized personality.

Final Thoughts

Regardless of your stance on my proposed enhancements, I will continue to use GreenRange as long as it is the best performing range add on available. I personally believe that my suggestions will only contribute to GreenRange's already stunning performance, and I hope that you will agree with my stance. Thank you for your time and consideration of my ticket.

Changed description:
- The enhancement that I am proposing is that you rid GreenRange of its saved variables and localize the configuration options for OOR color and OOM color to the top of the core LUA file.  Furthermore, I'd suggest that you don't make an in-game configuration system.
+ **Proposed Enhancements**
+ # Removal of saved variables from GreenRange.
+ # Localization of the options for OOR and OOM colors to the top of the core .LUA file.
+ # Lack of in-game configuration system.
- I understand that for a typical WoW player, opening LUA files and modifying configuration options isn't ideal, but I believe that if a player has the time to convert RGB values to decimal, to even use your in-game commands, they likely have the knowledge of editing a file.  Your add on boasts optimization where ever it can be found, and while the look-up time for saved variables, and the file space they occupy are negligible, I think it is worth it in the spirit of the add on.
