[Plugin] Festival Buddy II

I just released the initial public version (v2.0.1) of Festival Buddy II, based on Galuhad's Festival Buddy, at lotrointerface.com. This plugin is designed to help you with festivities through-out Middle-earth.

There have been numerous festival changes since Festival Buddy's last update in 2014, and the number of changes I've been making mean releasing them as a patch no longer makes sense.

Festival Buddy II currently supports:
  • Spring (March)
  • Anniversary (April/May)
  • Midsummer (June)
  • Summer / Farmers Faire (August/September)
  • Harvestmath (October)
  • Yule (December)
  • Hobnanigans (Various)

The Hedge Maze during the Spring Festival can be difficulty to navigate. Festival Buddy II includes an in-game map that highlights the objectives of the various maze quests and responds to the /loc command to show you where you are.

Midsummer is a complicated festival. Festival Buddy II includes a Quick Guide you can use to help complete the interwoven quests of Minas Tirith.

Please let me know if you spot any errors, or if you have any requests.

Thanks for that new plugin version!
Does that mean if we have old version still installed we can just remove it, your new plugin does not require old one?

This adds a quick guide for the Yule festival!

Version 2.0.4 release notes:

A quick note: The 2.0.4 release brings the Yule quick guide for English clients, but the French and German update won't be until 2.0.5. If you're playing on French or German clients, please skip 2.0.4 for now.
