Housing Repair Alerts
Welcome to our weekly WildStar Addon Spotlight! This week we've got the spotlight on Housing Repair Alerts, an addon created by xowl that tells you when your housing plugs are close to needing repair so you're not caught off guard by expired plugs!
Have you ever come back to your Protostar home in the sky, only to find out that half your plugs have expired? While you can always check to see how much time is left in each plug, it's burried within the housing UI and it's not something that many folks even look for.
With Housing Repair Alerts(HRA) you can now get a nice pop-up window that will display what repairs are overdue and what plugs will be expiring soon so you know right when you can repair them. HRA pops up everytime you visit your home and you can select how long the notification stays on screen among other options you can see in the image below.
For those of you who are fascinated with the housing system, this addon is a no-brainer. Don't ever let your Mineral Deposit plug go unmined again, as you'll know exactly how much time is left when it gets close to expiring. You can even ignore plugs that you don't care about and only have for aesthetics, like the Hobo Train plug I have on my plot. Repairing the Hobo Train only makes hobos appear on my plot so as long as I don't repair it, it's just a broken down train engine sitting on my plot.

Housing Repair Alerts is a very simple addon that doens't take up much memory or resources, yet the information you can get from it can be invaluable. No matter what you prefer to do in WildStar, just about everyone has housing plugs and I'm positive that this addon will make managing your plugs even easier, so it's an easy recommendation!
