Hello all.

Scammers make me rage. So I wrote this.

It will make any players in a radius of 10 yalms from Oboro disappear. Except you of course. Enjoy your privacy with him!

https://github.com/lili-ffxi/FFXI-Addons/tree/master/safeoboro

No commands. Load it and it's active. Load it before zoning into Port Jeuno for maximum effectiveness.

TO-DO: make the distance configurable with a command, make it not block other players in your party.

Say goodbye to Odoro (and bazaar scammers) forever. Enjoy!

Hey, love the *** outta that. Please, add Gorpa-Masorpa, kthx

.... and home points.... and survival guides, and the AH, basically, can you make all the *** disappear for me, much love.

-THE- single most obnoxious thing is being afk near an NPC, other ***may come close but that's the worst.

Eventually I might expand it with Oseem, Gorpa, and a few others, but it needs a few tweaks for that and I want to add a whitelist for party members first. You might be able to adapt it yourself tho, it's not a particularly complicated addon. Besides, didn't Tako (and others) already had the option to make everybody else disappear?

It has it, but I don't want my own party to disappear, that'd be odd.

Can't give myself stuff, but I digress, that's an easy enough solution. Easy to turn off and on.

You know how all other NPC's and PC's disappear when you interact with RoE NPC's like Rolandienne? Yeah, make that into a universal NPC interaction addon. Would make Oseem, Gorpa, Odoro and Escha NPC's so much better to navigate.

Would also make it easier on multi-boxers with the reduced lag.

You sure? Most multiboxers use addons to interact with NPCs anyway, and those skip menus entirely.

Anyway, the addon currently works by waiting for player updates to naturally come, disappearing everybody when you click on an NPC would mean manually injecting an update for each character in range, so I'm most likely really not going to do it :<

What you have is the better (best?) anyway. It just needs more npcs added.

Any npc that people insist on crowding around, 10 yalm no spawn bubble is absolutely incredible. It's just 6 or 7 that're insanely obnoxious, so much so, that the HP takes longer to spawn because of it. East Adoulin, North Sandoria, Mhaura, Gorpa, Oseem, Odyssey and 1 or 2 AH windows.

Edit instead of bump: I don't know if it would help with DI or not, but sure, that's mildly annoying too for the 2 minutes per day you see it. I don't think this method would work though, the players spawn before the dragon, so idk though.

An addon that stopped anyone outside of your own party loading would be great for DI and even alts.

if you block everyone except yourself, your mules, and your party, it's almost like playing on a good server

except, you still have nonstop rmt/merc shouts, invisible botters at every single camp with any use killing your mobs, really long queues, and even more instance instability

Well the point is to have the option, however mainly it's great for alts to lessen any needlesslag.

Eh, was just tossing an idea out there that came to mind. Your current idea is objectively the better option in every way anyways. I'm all about getting rid of the 30+ afk people squatting beside every single relevant NPC in the game. Would add about 5 years to my lifespan.

something like this would be perfect, Tako allows you to invis people but i dont think you can whitelist people, and also you have to be running tako to use it. If you could make it so pt is whitelisted, and it hides pc around the homepoints etc that would be amazing

or maybe just oboro, oseem, and ambu npc. that would still be a ton of help

Just a fair generic warning: Oboro hasn't been on Asura for a few days so higher population servers may want to keep an eye out in case he pulled a server-swap during the cheap server-jump campaign to maybe catch a few people slippin' on another server. Unlikely, but with shady people like this, you can't go by the rule book.

This person was just an Asura problem, right? There were no copy-cats or he didn't have the same thing set up across every server?

Please add Oseem. It's annoying the amount of people that sit there and idle around him all day when it doesn't take any more than 30 seconds to get your DM augments and get out.

You can use DS4Windows to set any keyboard key to controller.

x/y/z you can get from Infobar, load it and then target yourself and it'll give you the exact coordinates you're standing at

(it isn't perfect, because you'll be a tiny bit off of gorpa's coords, but it's more than good enough)
