Spawn tracking/analysis utilities.


  • This plugin adds the ability to watch for certain spawns, either spawning or despawning. You can also optionally log highly configurable spawn information to log file (MQ2SpawnMaster.log) located in your configured MQ2 logs directory (default is .\Logs). Use the TimeStamp option in your [Settings] in the INI to control whether a timestamp is logged with each entry, and the [LogString] entry to control the format.


  • /spawnmaster <on/off> Turns spawn checking on or off.
  • /spawnmaster add <SpawnName> Add spawn name to watch list (or target if no name given).
  • /spawnmaster delete <SpawnName> Delete spawn name from watch list (or target if no name given).
  • /spawnmaster list Display watch list for current zone.
  • /spawnmaster uplist Display any mobs on watch list that are currently up.
  • /spawnmaster downlist Display any watched mobs that have died or despawned.
  • /spawnmaster load Force reload of INI file for spawn list.
  • /spawnmaster case<on/off> Turns exact case checking on or off.
  • /logspawn <on/off> Turns logging on or off, or toggles it if no parameter is given.

Macro Data

This plugin adds a new TLO called SpawnMaster.


  • ${SpawnMaster.Search} : int - Return number of names in search list.
  • ${SpawnMaster.UpList} : int - Return number of mobs in up list.
  • ${SpawnMaster.DownList} : int - Return number of mobs in down list.
  • ${SpawnMaster.Version} : string - Return string with plugin version.
  • ${SpawnMaster.LastMatch} : string - Return name of last matched spawn from the up list.

Sample Configuration

General plugin settings are under the [Settings] section of the INI file. For spawns, they are by zone, and can be under a section of longname, or shortname. shortname is searched for first, longname is used if no entry is found for the shortname. An example would be for Guild Lobby. First it would look for [guildlobby], and if that isn't found, it would look for [Guild Lobby].

OnSpawnCommand needs to be under [server.charname], if you aren't sure of the server shortname, in game type: /echo ${EverQuest.Server}
