IndiNope 1.0.4 (and probably final, for real this time)

Hides geomancy effect from players.

Please note: you can get the same functionality with ingame filters (Config -> Effects -> "All effect during battle" must be off, then Party-> You/monster/party/non-party PC must be turned on), but those filters also block a lot of other things, while this addon only blocks geomancy bubbles on player characters.

Please note: this addon does not hide luopan bubbles, those seem to be part of the luopan model itself. At least, I (and a bunch of better coders than I) did not find a way to hide them without also blocking the luopan itself from appearing at all, which I'd prefer not to do.

No commands, load it and it's on, unload and it's off.

IndiNope is now in the windower launcher! Please download it directly from there!
(or Download it from my new Github page)

Changelog:

1.0.4 - More tweaks.
1.0.3 - A few tweaks.
1.0.1 - Fixed a bug where Indi-Nope would make Master stars disappear. Thanks Kenshi for finding out about it.
1.0.0 - Initial release.

NOTE:
To reduce luopan effects past what this addon can do, download XIPivot from this thread and install it, then get these modified DATs to use with it:

Updated mods with most of the gas effects removed from indi and geo spells.

folder 289 = geo
folder 293 = indi

I (or somebody else) might eventually find a way to do the same from an addon instead of needing modded DATs, but in the meantime it's the next best thing. XIPivot and the above dat mods have nothing to do with Indi-Nope, but since they're in the same scope (reducing graphical strain caused by geo bubbles), I figured I'd make a note about them.

Does this work when you're NOT engaged in battle? I need geomancy effects removed completely, if possible.

THANKS FOR YOUR HARD WORK

The effect is the effect whether you're attacking or afking. Should make no difference.

There is a difference with the in game battle effects filter. Geomancy turns on as soon as you disengage. Turns off during battle. I'm asking if it's a static removal of geomancy or if it's just the same battle off version I'm already using.

With both being loaded it removed 100% of the aura effects on both Indi and Loupon spells.

Just curious, why would someone want this?
I think the bubbles look cool.

Too much ***on screen. Multiplied when you multibox.

Imagine if songs kept musical notes floating around and rolls kept spinning dice(cards) on screen. It would be stupid. So is geomancy. So is afterglow.

Half of the time you can barely tell if the mob is in the damn bubble anyway with the sphere. Lines in the ground would've been better. (like 14 I guess?)

Eiryl's answer talks about graphical clutter, but there's another reason: geomancy bubbles kill framerate on lower end systems. One bubble is not so bad, but already with two the lag starts to be noticeable. When you have 2-3 GEO each doing three bubbles (geo/indi/entrust), and you have two characters open... the stutter gets real.

I'll pass on the babies (unless they can be written in lua I guess), but yes:
- Indi-Nope completely removes Indi effects from players, as the client is prevented from even knowing an Indi effect is active (tho the status icon is still on, and the spell still takes effect of course). It will also prevent the Indi- animation to occur on blink, but it will not touch luopans at all.
- kireek's dat swap also does not prevent luopans from appearing, and still lets Indi- spells do the animation on blink, but it totally removes glow, cloud and texture from both Geo- and Indi- spells. The impact is noticeable.

Note that addon and dat swap are two independent entities, you don't need to install both for either to work, altho the combined result is a little stronger than each individually. For FPS, the dat swap is the real MVP, the addon is just (slightly) less work to setup.

I'm working on this. It will also make BRD singing effect permanently playing on repeat. Music is life.

Umm.. if you consider "FPS above the single digits" a "game advantage"?
Because the only thing you get out of this - and that's the reason Lili made the plugin - is less strain on your GPU/CPU because you don't see those effects. Otherwise there is zero change in the game and you get no advantage what soever. It's designed to be used by players on low-end machines and Notebooks that don't want to or can't use any alternatives to improve performance.

FFXI is not optimised for modern tech. My rig runs modern graphically-intensive games on ultra high settings with no issue.

Boot up FFXI, jump into Dyna D with 12+ people and see what happens. I had to turn off shadows from other player characters to prevent the horrible lag these kinds of extra graphic effects cause.

This addon does indeed offer said game advantage, albeit, not an unfair one in my opinion.

So are you saying its not an advantage for those ppl with lowend machines ?

i merly stated that some ppl sacrificy Picture quality in a game to get some kind of advantage.
Going from crap fps to good fps is getting and advantage

Bump.

Turns out there was a small bug: Indi-Nope was removing Master stars. I never noticed because I have all them turned off by default on myself. The new version should have fixed that.

Thanks to Kenshi for finding out and doing some testing to let me know what things to zero and what things to keep.

IndiNope has been added to the Windower launcher (with a slight name change to make it easier to type when loading/unloading it). Please download it directly from there. Enjoy!

Whoops! Sorry, missed this. I posted a little to early when indinope was still only in the development version and that's why you didn't see it. It's available now.
