Looks like this might be as close as you can get to Carbonite. Doubtful that the authors of Carb would be willing to spend time porting it to RoM seeing as its quite difficult to keep ahead of just WoW patches, let alone a whole new version of their addon,

First of all... Whole different database from one game to another. I don't play RoM so I know nothing of it. This would also have to assume that the carbonite authors played RoM - which they probably don't. It's good to take a working good template (like Carbonite) and apply it to another game, if possible, however I can only imagine there would still be a lot of database coding and gathering to do.

My suggestion is to get one of the RoM addon creators to get trial version of WoW (if they don't play) and install Carbonite and see if they can make anything out of it that would work. That's probably your best bet in how to get Carbonite (or a similarity) to RoM - just tell them they can be famous and well known/liked for creating such an awesome addon!

Updates need to be done to make sure Carbonite stays compatible with WoW. If new WoW features are added hopefully Carbonite does something to support that.

If your paying for WoW to use Carbonite your doing it wrong. Why would you pay a montly fee to a game to use an addon?

Seeing as to how it's one of the most played MMO's I can see why it's favored more.

Fixing an addon is not always that easy. And not to sure what you mean by "lil exploring on the net means".

But your never going to see a Carbonite on ROM. The people behind Carbonite are barely supporting it anymore as they have moved on. Thankfully one person has stayed around to keep Carbonite working for now. Chances are though they will be no longer helping keep WoW updated for much longer. Honestly I'm surprised to see him still fixing Carbonite.

I suggest you take schizophrena idea.

Hit up the ROM addon forums talk to the people there. Link them to youtube videos of Carbonite. See if they can get something like this going over there.

\nods vigorously in Sepioth's direction

If I were the one updating Carb, I would not for a single second consider porting the addon to a different game. Especially one that is no doubt written in a completely different programming language.

I'm not sure where you got your information, but I guarantee you it would NOT be easy. Just building a database of quest information as a starting point would be like climbing Mount Everest in a blizzard without oxygen tanks.

And frankly I think the Carb guys (or guy) have shown the patience of Mother Theresa. Myself, I would've gone ballistic the first time someone demanded "fex iT NAOW!". The addon would've been removed as a public, FREE download and just used by me and my friends.

I commend Carboniteaddon for his patience and hard work.
