A plugin by DigitalPixel to set the guild portal with two clicks.

Once loaded, when you browse the Portal Merchant in the guild hall the MQ2PortalSetter window will automatically open. Click on the name of the zone you want to set the portal and the plugin handles the rest.

Instructions
  1. Download MQUI_PortalSetterWindow.xml to (Your EverQuest Folder)\uifiles\default.
  2. /plugin mq2portalsetter
  3. Reload your UI. /loadskin default
  4. Visit the portal merchant in your guild hall.

Troubleshooting
You probably forgot step 3 in the instructions.

More information:

edit: UI updated with Overthere / Lceanium

update 6/1/2018: kaen01 made the UI prettier

Any idea why this works with some of my boxes but not all of them? I've loaded the plugin and reloaded the default UI but it still won't work on all of my boxes.

As of today you can also put the ui in your Release/UIFiles folder. It will check there before your EQ folders.

Are you using a non-default UI on some?

Hey, Redbot. I'm using the default UI on and the same eq install for all of the toons. MQUI_PortalSetterWindow.xml is in my UIFiles folder under release. Just odd that it works on some char's but not all.

Would it be possible to do a similar interface for druid/wiz ports?
This plugin is basically just a macro in C++ form, and since copypasta seems to be The Way of doing MQ2 these days, this would be a great plugin for you to learn a little C++ and modifying it to your needs. Well, not proper C++, mind you, real code doesn't look like this, real code is beautiful, MQ2 code is vulgar. But anyway, give it a try, see what happens. And if you want to go even further, add corpse summoning to the list. (Feature Creep is also part of The Way in MQ2 these days, too, and you'll also learn something along the way).

I can not get this to work when I am not using the default ui folder. I have downloaded the file (MQUI_PortalSetterWindow.txt) to the ui folder I use and reloaded the skin. Eastern waste only shows up when I /loadskin default.

the UI file is not a .txt file.

The MQUI_PortalSetterWindow.xml should be located in the MQ2\uifiles\default directory.

If you have a uifile in the directory for your personal UI you should remove it and allow it to get the file from the default directory. If you have one in your everquest\uifiles\default directory, you should remove it and allow it to pull from the mq2\uifiles\default directory.

Hope this helps clear up your issue.

You can also create a folder with your UI's name and place MQUI_PortalSetterWindow.xml in there.

Example from the Very Vanilla "release" folder:

If I ran a custom UI, I'd just copy all the default MQ2 xml's to this folder.
