Hi, I know this plugin has been retired but is there a plugin that does similar? Having something that points out the direction and actively shows you where the mob is was very useful to me and since coming back I have been missing it.

I'm unfamiliar with this plugin and the specifics of it, but Between mq2map, myseq, and even using mq2hud with the "Target in LoS" and direction arrow i don't have issues knowing the direction or location of a mob

Yeah, I know about all that but nav will take you off running right through see invis as well and map requires the map to be open to work. The reason I liked OTD is because it used HUD to show a constant arrow showing the direction of the target without needing to open things. If anyone knows how to replicate what it did in HUD to get the arrows it would be appreciated. I haven't played in over 5 years and forgot how to even work in HUD and never did anything to advanced with it to begin with. Any help would be appreciated.

are you looking for something for mq2hud? like

Code:
Direction=3,260,78,255,0,0,${If[${Target.ID}==NULL,"",${If[${Math.Calc[((${Me.Heading.Degrees}-${Target.HeadingTo.Degrees}+375)%360)*-1]}>-30,"   XXX",${If[${Math.Calc[((${Me.Heading.Degrees}-${Target.HeadingTo.Degrees}+360)%360)*-1]}>-180,"<--","      -->"]}]}]}

That is close and I think I can mod it to work how I want it. Thank you for the head start :)
