In this episode, we take a look at the Buffbars plugin by Pengoros. This plugin allows for you to create a panel that will show you the buffs (and debuffs) that currently reside on your player, creates quickslots for your potions, and keeps track of their cool-down timer!
This plugin is something I’ve personally been waiting for and that I was thrilled to see created. I personally like to keep track of my buffs and my debuffs, but I am horrible at actually looking to see what is on me at all times. With this mod, not only does it make it easier to see the effects currently on my character, but it shows me the name and the time left. Plus, whenever I have a certain type of de-buff or low morale/power it will bring up the corresponding potion that can be used to remedy the situation. Additionally, it will then throw up a timer telling me when I can use that type of potion again! As if that’s not enough, there are a ton of visual options and filters that can be used to modify these bars so that they display in a manner that is pleasing to you!
Of all the plugins that I’ve tried, this is definitely one of the better designed mods out there, if not the best that I’ve tried so far. Not only does it serve a function that all my characters will use, but it is fully featured, customized, and still not bloat-ware. A plugin of this caliber makes me anxious to see what Pengoros and other plugin writers do as time goes on and the API opens up!
