Hi all,

I've created an addon that focuses a target, similar to how Focus Target functions in FFXIV. I heard this would have helped in Ambuscade this month, so apologies for being late to the party.





https://github.com/xurion/ffxi-focus-target

Simply load the addon, target something and type //ft. The same command toggles the focus. I have personally bound this to ALT+F to match FFXIV.

Right now it tracks the HP percentage and changes colour based on the target status (idle, claimed etc). It displays spells currently being cast, TP moves being used and which target the spell/move is against. You can focus on mobs, players and NPCs.

I can appreciate that the size of it may not be to everyone's taste, so I plan to create a small, medium and large version of the layout. I also plan to make it more efficient soon.

Thanks!

Finding this to be really useful, would recommend giving it a go.

Was nice for Iron Giants last month when I was testing it

This part alone sounds awesome. I’ve always tried to get my chat log set up to only show those two things in one of my windows.

I’ll for sure try this soon.

Looks quite useful. Now if there was a way to marry it to Debuffed, that would be amazing to have all that data in one spot.

so to clarify, you can use alt+f to automatically switch targets?

This is very nice. Possible to have a much smaller UI though?

I set up my own bind for it. I didn't want the addon to prescribe what bind in case it overwrote a bind from something else. To bind it to ALT+F, you can put this in your init.txt script file:
Code
//bind !f ft

Yep :) this is what I get for playing on a 4k at full screen. Different sizes is something I'm working on. Given the size of it currently, would you say it appears as a medium or a large size? I plan to have 3 sizes, S, M and L, so I'd like to gauge which one of those the existing size fits.
