About this mod
This mod allows you to queue up abilities to learn by clicking on the greyed out skill learning icons. As soon as a skill point becomes available and the level requirements for learning are met, the ability at the front of the queue is automatically learnt. The list of queued skills is shown above the learning buttons and is hidden when the buttons are hidden. Right-click unqueues abilities.
This mod targets those people who like to overlook their level-ups, and those who want to save those two extra seconds hitting the tiny learning button in a "go at level 5". And those who are simply lazy and know their skill build in advance.
(click to view full size)
Reading the list from left to right each number stands for one level of learning for that ability; where '1' is the ability in the first slot, '4' is the ultimate ability and '5' refers to the Attribute Boost.
Additionally, whenever there is only Attribute Boost to pick (usually at level 15 and from level 17 on), it is picked automatically.
Right-click on the "show/hide skilling buttons" button clears the whole queue.
This mod was greatly inspired by Bangerz' Automatically Level Stats When Abilities Maxed mod; great thanks to him for the pioneer work!

in loving memory of Rikimaru
Awesome, first post is off-topic already. And: send it whenever you're finished doing with it whatever you're doing with it.
Nice. Very very nice. I dunno if I'm going to use it though... I'm worried that I might accidentally click to queue something without noticing and mess it up.
oops dident read all of it, silly me. anyways nice mod. will try it out soon.

Very impressive! Will surely check it out.
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.
Yo Notausgang, this is pretty good, and I'ma let you finish, but Bard has the best UI Mod OF ALL TIME.
Nah just kidding, this is really really awesome and helpful, thanks!
Thought myself after bangerz mod about doing sth like this^^
-if you have 1 or more stats in queue you can't remove all of them, one stays in the queue. ( i think stats has some little problems, because of that; maybe only display bug) (Oh, i see it does autoqueue stats, when nothing else possible... maybe it only happened in practice mode after reset, so I'm not so sure about this bug anymore...)
-the List doesn't always show the correct queue: i messed around in practice mode, my queue was empty and it took stats on lvl 15 (as intended) and stats at lvl 16 (not intended, i couldn't choose ultimate), had to take it at lvl 17. (same here^^.. maybe it's buggy only in practice mode)
-you shouldn't be able to queue an ability more than 4-(actual level) times (3 for ult)
-right click on the arrow button (which hides the other buttons) to remove the whole queue

I'll check what you describe when I get home tonight, but could you try giving me accurate instructions on how to encounter one of the bugs you describe? (as in, start practice mode, learn ability x, queue up abilities x, y, z, level up 7 times; w/e)
As for the suggestions: I was too lazy to make it count how often which skill is queued, and I don't think it's that important if you use the mod seriously.
The other suggestion is easily implemented and I can do so next release.
k, nice.. I'll check again later^^
It should be working 100% fine in practice mode as long as you don't reset your hero's level while there is something in the queue or hit the "max level" button.
ok, i made the tests now without reseting when something was in the queue.
Using it correctly, i haven't found any bugs.
it's a little buggy if you queue skills that can't be skilled at that point in the queue.
it's not foolproof, but it works fine^^ :>
this should be banned. auto stuff like this makes the game 2 easy. part of the skill in the game is being able to level a skill quickly while in the heat of the battle especially early game where an extra level or a different skill can make all the difference. well done on making it bt when competitive play comes into action i think ull find all ui mods like this banned
help for the chronically lazy
i like lots thanks (i'd type more, but you know)
Thx for this!
- If a skill point is available but the requirements for the ability at the front of the queue are not met the skill point is not spent.
- Once the hero level is high enough to allow skilling the first ability in the queue the ability is skilled once, and if any skill points are left over the next ability in the queue is considered. Thus, it may happen that multiple abilities are skilled at once.
i tried it out and i found some issues. it picks a random skill for in on lvl 1 and if you forget to que for a lvl it picks a random skill for you got stats on lvl 2 =( never forgot to pick again so don't know if it always picks stats after lvl 1. on lvl 1 it took a random skill for me.
I did now encounter some bugs myself; will post an updated version as soon as I figure out what's going on.
Done for today, fixed a bug blackAngel88 found, one regarding skilling Attributes automatically around level 15-17; and added a "clear whole list" as right-click function to the "show skilling buttons" button as someone requested.
Todo: disable the mod as long as one has an ally leaver's hero selected; can't be bothered to find a test case and find out how to recognize that right now.
Edit: bump requested
