Question - How to configure all casters in group to sit if not currently casting

I am running a 6 man group with 4 casters. Currently I'm using a command in eqbc to tell all my casters to sit and this is getting very old when you do it several times each mob. I've tried setting medcombat=1 but then the casters sit until they are full, healer doesnt heal, casters dont nuke till full. Also I tried setting med start to 99 but that didnt help either.

Is it possible to configure spell casters to always sit if not casting a spell currently while not being locked to sitting and medding to full? and how would you do this?

Thanks.

medcombat=0
medstart=80

They will sit between fights once below 80 mana (or w/e % you want) but start casting once the attack call is made. During combat they should be casting almost continuously, or waiting for the GCD to refresh, so in combat sitting isn't going to happen. If you need more med time, you'll need to put them on mounts, which requires outdoor zones.

Tried those settings. Any medcombat or medstart setting either results in them standing and not medding enough or sitting and not casting enough. Also I spend most of my time in dungeons so a mount usually wont work. Also I dont currently feel like paying for mounts on all my 6 characters. If there is something that you can change in mq2melee or mq2cast or some other plugin to help with this would be appreciated.

I don't think KISS will let you do that. Once a mob is on extended target the script will keep you in combat mode. I have a similar problem with my bard always running out of endurance. Of course it's not a show stopper because the bard can still sing without endurance.

For your casters make sure they are using mana wisely. As mentioned already, use mounts. Use Mod Rods continuously if you have a mage. Use mana regen song if you have a bard. Use stat foods and drinks. Use Miniature Horn of Unity whenever it's up. Get the best chanter mind buffs you can. And use conditions to ensure they don't waste dots and nukes on low health mobs.

Also you can adjust the PullPause setting on your puller to take appropriate timed breaks to ensure the casters can med up to full periodically.

Or just let them go OOM and eventually your group will stabilize and only kill what your total mana regen will allow. :)

Medding between combat is the best KA will do out of the box. It's not setup to the do the sit-stand dance between individual spell casts.

Does sitting even help you med if you're in combat? I thought that in-combat medding was nerfed.

This will make you sit, though I'm not sure if it will interrupt spell casts too.
INI:
DPS8=command:/sit|99|Cond12
Cond12=${Me.Standing}

Easy to test that theory. Either way sitting during combat is not noticeable to me but I don't play a wiz. SK don't go oom, SHM canni, and my CLR rarely goes under 90%. My bard does run out of STA sometimes but that takes hours of nonstop pulls.

would adding an extra check to the condition help?
INI::
DPS8=command:/sit|99|Cond12
Cond12=${Me.Standing} && !${Me.Casting}
That might keep the sit command from activating interupting a needed cast
