Visual indicator while .gm vis off

Just a simple change I made to make it more obvious when you have visibility toggled off. I probably could have edited it better and made it more uniform, but I figured it still may be useful to some folks.

Anyway, all it does is add a Transparency spell to your character when you go invisible, and then remove that aura upon going visible again.

Edit [7/12]: Changed the location of SetGMVisible(true) under the .gm vis on command. This is so the aura is removed before the GM goes visible so as to (theoretically) prevent people seeing the aura being removed from the character in their combat logs.

Cool idea /emoticons/default_smile.png

nice idea


Thx. This is very beautiful

Btw, imho 37800 better, 37802 is to transparent /emoticons/default_tongue.png

Trinity’s coding guidelines recommend using defines/enums instead of magic numbers.

I’d recommend submitting this for review once the code is cleaned up etc

By popular demand and usefulness, added to the repo in

nice, thx =)
