Rift has a robust system that allows for the use of addons. Addons are player created tools that interlace and act as an actual part of the game. This allows a variety of different options, automation and displays that are not provided by Trion. Here we present what we see are the most popular and useful addons that are available. If this is your first experience with addons you should go to the either the Curse Addons website which has long been popular with World of Warcraft fans or RiftUi website which was devoted to Rift. The former also has a wiki for Iprogrammers interested in developing there own addons.
One thing you may want to know about these addons is that they normally have commands that work on the command line. The command line is where you type your chat messages to people. Instead of hitting /r to reply to someone try typing in “/rm”. This is Rift Meter’s (see below) for command to display its command line options. As you can see in the picture to the left, there are lines where /rm is followed by another word. If you type in the first one, “/rm default” for example, it would restore all the settings that you have changed in Rift Meter to the original default values. This often becomes useful to know if an addon has a bug and you cannot recover it or it disappears completely.
This is one of the ones that contain almost everything you want. New raid frames, cast bars, lots of third party gadgets, add units for any currency you want, it does so much you may be overwhelmed. We highly suggest at least checking this one out to see what it is capable of.
To get setup visit the curse homepage for it and follow the instructions.
