I was messing with my lua the other day. I was wondering if anyone knows how to create an entry for pet actions for the auto. Like, have it swap in the TP set before it weapon skills.

This has been discussed alot in several different threads. A few attempts have been made.

The answer is no.


Pup actions actually happen server side. They are then reported to the client like monster actions.

The closest to what you want is to make an equipset for pet WS before it goes off, once its used its ws, or an action if you have attachments that do that, it'll swap you back into whatever your current set was.

I'm pretty sure ashita users have something that equips pup gear according to actions. Not exactly, but

However you could automate equipment changes based on the pet's TP >= 1000 TP

Doing that means it'll always act in your ws set since autos dont instantly go the second they hit 1k. you'll spent extra seconds in the ws set tough.

I'm actually writing a lua that can equip petws gear before it ws. Once I finish first version, I'll share it. Kinda soon

As above, you can do any number of things to estimate when you should have the gear on, but it will always just be an approximation. No Lua will fully be able to overcome that issue, but there are things you could do to improve accuracy by doing things like observing how long a puppet takes to perform actions.

It's an approximation, for the moment the lua works correctly for that
If your pet is tping alone, it'll switch to petws gear as soon as he's able to ws(>1000TP)
and if you're tping with your pet, so it'll set petws at aftercast of master ws, for optimizing skillchain.
I'm working on something to recognize which ws your pet will do after master ws, so it'll put specific gears depending on the ws(fTP for arcuballista, daze, pet vit for bonecrusher...)

Thats pretty awesome.

If you are going to all that effort, have you considered adjusting rules depending on attachments which adjust the weaponskill ai?

namely, speedloaders and inhibitors.

solo its easy in that auto will ws after you ws. but w/ a party it can be anytime someone else uses a weaponskill. I might think of tapping into the skillchain addon for this. Using the skillchain to calculate a window after anyone uses a weaponskill, in which the auto might contribute.

I have tested time, and time again, and even worked with some people on here, and I am 99% sure that the way I am doing it is working. With the way I have it setup, I see a significant increase in damage, and my numbers are pretty similar to when locked. I do notice that due to the speed of Pet WS packets, that sometimes it does what seems to miss the packet all together using messages to track this.

I also have enmity working using delayed triggers since the auto is predictable with JA's as long as you have Maneuvers up. The way I have it setup is using packet detection, to grab skill name, then call a gs c of the same name. The only problem is when you start doing stuff as master as well and engaged things just get sloppy. If you play using manual triggers I am sure it will be about 90% better than trying to use this method. Im just lazy on PUP.

Ive posted a bunch before, but never anything full. If someone wants to mess with it, I will give the raw code for whoever to test on their own.

Settings code:
Code
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    --## These are job-specific variables. Be careful adjusting as it may cause unwanted changes to your gearswap.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    puppetmaster = {}
    puppetmaster.lastProvoke    = 0
    puppetmaster.ProvokeT       = I{'on','off'}
    puppetmaster.lastFlash      = 0
    puppetmaster.FlashT         = I{'on','off'}
    puppetmaster.WST            = I{'on','off'}

        bpcore.ping.last = os.clock()

    end
    
end)


Note: I wont be handing out any other special code that is required in specific settings or libraries I have written. Its pretty simple to get the idea of how it works though. Also I dont use motes, I have no intention to, and I can't help implement. Sorry. :(

I looked at your code. It very likely is working as you expect.

Errors in not equipping are probably a result of Inhibitor or Speed Loader modifying the Automaton's check pattern. My suspicion is that Inhibitor or Speed Loader adds some kinda secondary check for the automaton where it will use TP the instant it is over 1k in some situations, obviously when a SC debuff is present on that target, but there may also be something else as I have observed it at other times. It's possible that if the Automaton is close enough to a WS when a check is performed, the Automaton will log that action and perform it as soon as it is able. Dunno. It doesn't matter, really.

Thanks, Good info to have! Im really not huge in to PUP, but I do have it geared well enough to do stuff with it. Its fun to tinker with.

I"m looking at this, and I'm wondering what of Elidyr's have you included?

I see the following line:

id = windower.raw_register_event('incoming chunk', update_pet_tp)

but I don't see any of the rest. are you actually using Elidyr's functionality for automatic swapping for automaton enmity and WS?

Most of mine will not be related to anything in motes, or taken from anywhere here. I think that is actually the most code I have ever posted of these particular functions. You would need to be very familiar with motes, and probably heavily modify my code to fit in.

Elidyr is your entire pup lua posted anywhere?

I grabbed the pieces you posted in the forum, but its alot eaiser to modify a full lua, than to piece different ones together.

I'm not sure if trying ot put your functions into motes would be worse than adding some of the functions I have into yours.

Trying to adjust to add to motes will be best, and I cant post my files here. Sorry. :(

Id be more than happy to explain any of it.

Edit the problem I had before is I dont think it will work with motes. Due to conflicting functions in aftercast causing gear to double apply.

I don't have to use motes. I use it largely because its consistent w/ my other luas.

it would not be hard to just use yours instead. if I had it.
