Note: Since attachments are no longer supported on the forums, the download can be found here. The usefulness of Mission Control is perhaps debatable, now that CurseForge is handling addons officially, but enough people are used to it that it's worth having back up.
So, while I was stuck offline in transit and stuff for the holiday, this is what I came up with!
MissionControl is a basic little tool provided by the NASA project which should make it easier to install addons. In order to install an addon, just run MissionControl and then drag one of the zipfiles from the beta forum onto the window. If you are running WildStar at the time, you'll need to reload UI for the addon to appear. To remove an addon, click on the name of the addon in MissionControl's window and then click 'Remove' and confirm that you do mean to remove it.
This isn't a particularly pretty program, and I will warn that it is not necessarily as heavily tested as it might be, but for a 0.10a version it should be sufficient. Down the road, MissionControl will probably also pull a little XML 'catalog' of known addons and use the 'Info' button to open the thread for any known addon. Feedback is welcomed!
Just put MissionControl.exe (in this zipfile) wherever you find useful, and then run it when you need.
Note that, since I did not bother to pick up a developer certificate from Microsoft yet, Windows will warn you this is from an unknown publisher. ALSO note that since it's just an unsigned executable, Chrome's going to be mildly unhappy about downloading it. I'm going to go pick up a signing certificate a little later and make a signed build for the next version, to get around that.
(Oh, and thanks to Bitwise for posting that picture of the Houston bunny in the space helmet, which I grabbed as the icon for MissionControl for now.)
Source code for MissionControl is available in the beta GIT repository, in the 'MissionControl.git' project.
- Add an error message if, for some reason, MissionControl can neither find nor create the addons directory on installation.
- Now properly deletes addons. Oops.
- New icon, of the NASA Derpbunny. SHIIINY.
- Because Microsoft hates me, I've rebuilt with MFC statically linked.
- Initial cut.
- Can install an addon, or remove an addon.
- Not as well-tested as I would like.
- Uploaded a second version that contains mfc110u.dll
