"Beam me up." - Captain Kirk

What does it do?
This module is intended to make teleportation easy and convenient for users of all skill levels.

More information is available on the Wiki.

FAQ

Q) I purchased Scotty, but why doesn't it show up in the Addons menu?
A) Make sure you've also downloaded it from the Store.

Q) Can this be used while custom tasks are running?
A) Yes, but you'll get suspended if you make discoveries (waypoints, poi's, vistas) too quickly.

Q) What happened to the SunSpear caches, Bleached Bones and Lost Dwarven Chests?
A) Download the daily loot .TXT files attached to this thread and put them in your Scotty folder, then choose the Load Coordinates File option to get teleport buttons for them.

Q) What happened to the Hirathi Strongbox coordinates file for Lake Doric?
A) The locations changed, and it was discovered that the coordinates file is unnecessary.  Simply use the Search feature to find gadgets with "strong" in the name and you'll get buttons for all of them in the entire zone.

FEATURE REQUESTS

Q) Can you create a "Portal Scroll" type of functionality to allow teleporting to any waypoint in the world without having to open up the game map?
A) I'm looking into this, but be aware that it will cost the normal amount to teleport to a waypoint that is not in the current zone.

Q) Can you add a feature to automatically teleport to the commander every X seconds if lots of players are near?
A) I've been testing this and gotten into some awkward moments lately. Commanders are paying more attention than I'm comfortable with, so this might not happen.

Q) Can you add a feature to automatically loot everything in a .TXT file?  I'm lazy and don't want to click all the buttons...
A) I'm hoping to do this after Minion gets a function that determines whether or not the player is already interacting.  Until then, you'll have to manually click the buttons.

Q) Can you add a feature to automatically rotate through the saved temp locations?
A) I'm looking into the best way to do this; I'm currently favoring a timer.

BUGS & BY-DESIGN ISSUES

Q) Why am I sometimes stuck inside an object, wall or other undesired location after teleporting?
A) Scotty teleports you to the location exposed by the GW2 game client, which is not always ideal. Sometimes you'll need to teleport out of the object or wall you got stuck in. I suggest creating a temporary teleport point you can easily get back to before testing out a new Event or Map location.

Q) Why isn't a POI or Vista available to teleport to?
A) They are probably covered by the "fog of war" on your map.

Q) Why isn't my Personal Story teleport button available?
A) It works for most but not all story locations in the same zone.  In some cases GW2 makes you read your in-game mail before you're able to discover the next point of your personal story.

Q) Why am I not able to progress my personal story quest after teleporting?
A) Some of the instances require that you run a specific path or go to a specific area or the quest script will break. Generally speaking, if you see a green arrow or green circle on your map you should run that path rather than teleporting to the end destination so as not to break ANET's quest scripting.

Q) Why are some repeatable heart quests not showing up?
A) The GW2 game client hides their x,y,z coordinates after they've been completed unless you're somewhat close to them.  Try getting closer to them on the map.

Q) Why aren't all Hero Points or Mastery Points showing up?
A) Both Hero and Mastery points are only available to teleport to once you're within ~5000 range of them. This is a limitation of the GW2 game client because it doesn't expose the x,y,z position until you're somewhat close.  Further, only the "Commune With" type of Mastery Points are available to teleport to because the rest all have unique content ID's.  Further, I have not captured 100% of the Content ID's for all possible Hero Points and Mastery Insights, so use the Search feature when necessary to find them using text in your local language.

Q) Why do I get an error when I click Semi-Automatic custom tasks?
A) A map completion custom task must be running when you click it. Scotty will automatically teleport you to your next custom task location every X seconds when active.

Q) Why do I get an error when I attempt to click-teleport to a far-off location?
A) MMO Minion's GetMouseInWorldPos() function returned an infinity value, meaning it couldn't figure out what your mouse cursor was pointing to. Try teleporting to a closer destination.

Q) I can't find any more Bloodstone Crystals. Is Scotty broken?
A) There is a hard cap on how many you may gather per day.  This is true of many other Season 3/4 gatherables as well.
https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bloodstone_Crystals

Q) Why is it that sometimes when I teleport to loot, Scotty doesn't automatically loot it for me?
A) This typically happens due to lag when the part of the zone you teleported to still needs to be loaded into memory on your PC. In these instances, simply click the button a second time and Scotty will loot for you.

Q) Why am I getting a "Network Error" when I rapidly loot things?
A) This isn't caused by Scotty, but rather the fact that your inventory is rapidly filling up and causing another addon to manipulate items in your bags too quickly.  If you're running into this error, try disabling AbsorbIt or other inventory management addons while you're going about your daily loot grabs.

  • Teleporting to Party Members is now available.
Recorder Instructions
1) Enable "Show File Recording Tools" in the Options menu.
2) Under the Search drop-down menu, type in your search text.  (e.g. "touched cache")
3) Check the "Recording" box.  You should see the number next to it increment for each search result found.
4) Leave the "Recording" box checked as you scout the zone. It will automatically record anything new that it finds.
5) Uncheck the "Recording" box when you've found everything.
6) Type a name into the file name box and click Save.  It will automatically append .TXT to the file name.
7) Verify your file is able to be loaded from the Load Coordinate File menu.

How to Manually Add Things
Option 1) Target something. Give it a name and click the "Target Add" button.  Verify the number of items recorded increments by 1.
Option 2) Stand somewhere. Give the location a name and click the "Player Add" button. Verify the number of items recorded increments by 1.
Option 3) Open the .TXT file in Notepad. Type a name and the x,y,z coordinates separated by commas.

10/08/2018
Lots of mouse cursor teleportation options have been made available, primarily for use in PvP.
  • Optionally limit mouse cursor teleportation to on-mesh locations. (when a mesh exists)
  • Optionally teleport to your mouse cursor on key-up instead of clicking.
  • Optionally set a time limiter on how often teleporting to your mouse cursor is available. A countdown timer will display in the interim.
  • Optionally teleport only a limited distance towards your mouse cursor.
10/10/2018
  • Changed teleporting to the mouse cursor to trigger on Mouse Click rather than Mouse Down. This was causing unintentional multiple teleports to happen in a row while the mouse button was held down, even if briefly.
  • The teleport indicator now clearly shows whether your mouse cursor is over a valid teleport location or not. (Green vs. Red circle)
  • The mouse cursor teleport timer restriction can now be set between 1 to 30 seconds.  (up from 12)
  • Added optional Downed Check to prevent teleporting to the mouse cursor while downed.
  • Added Unbound and Volatile Magic Collectors to the Convenience menu as these typically serve as your merchants in Season 3 & 4 maps.
Communication

Feel free to ping me on Discord, MMOminion private message or by responding to this thread.

Special Thanks!
  • Sherlucky for creating a lot of the attached coordinate .TXT files. (Mistonium, Winterberry, Orrian Oysters, Difluorite Crystals, Primordial Orchid, Bloodstone, Kournan Supply Caches, Waterlogged Chests)
    If you appreciate Sherlucky's work or would like to request additional coordinate files, he can be tipped or bribed.  :)
  • DeathCallsYou for creating the attached jumping puzzle .TXT files.

FAQ

Q) Can this be used while custom tasks are running?
A) Yes, but you'll get suspended if you make discoveries (waypoints, poi's, vistas) too quickly.

FEATURE REQUESTS

Q) Can you allow turning off the destination indicator?
A) I'll add this option to a future release.

BUGS & BY-DESIGN ISSUES

Q) Why does the teleport destination indicator flicker?
A) I'm looking into whether or not that can be fixed. The radar doesn't flicker, but I don't know if it has drawing help on the C++ backend.

Q) Why doesn't it teleport to Mastery Insights?  I'm on the right map!
A) Mastery Points require you to be within ~5000 of them on the map because I'm currently using the GadgetList() to dynamically discover them.  I'm working on a better fix; I just need to catalog each of their exact positions.

Quote is fixed, thanks!

Scotty won't be a free addon due to some extra coding love it required, but it'll be priced closely to something from Macklemore's Thrift Shop.

And this is his second add on on store. Man you are really great! I will buy all!

By the way, teleporting to discoveries only can get me banned? And if so, how long will I be banned?

REQUEST: Can I have a feature to teleport to nearby already discovered ones? like vista?

Regarding teleportation safety in general:
  • I teleport to new discoveries on my main account not less than 20 seconds apart and I've had no problems.  (but I could be lucky)
  • I recommend watching the timer since your last button-click teleport and waiting until it says >60s if you want to be safer.
  • I teleport to my mouse cursor location frequently in all game modes, but I recommend not being too obvious if there are nearby observers.
  • Suspensions are typically 3 months. (Even my blatantly obvious teleport gatherer only got a 3 month suspension, but that's after 3 days of 24x7 teleporting to gatherable nodes and selling them immediately on the trade post.)
  • It's highly unlikely, but if someone questions how you just popped into existence at a Vista or other location...
     - "I just came back from WvW"  (or PvP) - "I logged out here. Just logged back in." - "You must be lagging" /rude
These Scotty features will be released soon.
Teleporting to discovered locations is easy to code, but I'll have to think about how to change up the layout so that it doesn't get too busy.

Sorry, I requested it as part of the dailies sometimes. May I also suggest, to reveal the names of nearby node to gather? Like if I dont want to gather that certain node but only like shards and pearls. For dailies as well. That would be lovely. Anyway, great add on. So much worth it. Thanks for making this possible. I was doing this manually on minion but it was so tiring LOL

I revealed the names of individual nodes, waypoints, etc. as requested.  Check out today's update and let me know what you think.

A pic of the new user interface is in the wiki.  http://wiki.mmominion.com/doku.php?id=scotty

Viewed Vistas are proving to be a bit problematic due to some bad positional data on them in the map marker list, but I'll add them later if feasible.
