Configurable animated graphical timers & round trackers for foundry VTT that can be shown by the GM to all players.
To create a new hourglass, a Game Master may select the hourglass icon under the Token Controls.
This will open the options window for you to configure your hourglass.
The start hourglass button, once pressed, will cause a new hourglass window to appear on the screen of all players currently in the game session using the chosen options:
Once the duration has elapsed, the remaining time will dissapear and be replaced by the end message (if one has been entered):
Players can move the hourglass around the screen while it is counting down. They do also have the option of closing it, though they should only do this once the duration has elapsed.
Once an hourglass has been created, the module will retain the "last used" settings for the duration of the session. This means that you can create subsequent hourglasses using the same settings without having to re-enter them.
Multiple hourglasses can be opened by a GM at one time, should you wish to track multiple events simultaneously.
Timers can be set to "manual" control by setting the Duration type to "Manual (user click) in the hourglass options.
The manual timers feature a forward and backward button that, when clicked, will decrease and increase the remaining increments respectively. This could potentially be used by GMs to include manually controlled/incremented event or round tracking within their games. Both forward and back buttons are only visible to users with the GM role.
As well as changing the sand colour, each timer has a range of different visual styles to choose from.
Each style has all of the same functionality and customisation options as the default.
A heartfelt thankyou to artist Zael for creating some fantastic alternative timer styles with a range of themes.
Game Masters have the ability to save Hourglass Options as Presets. This will allow frequently used configurations to be quickly recalled and displayed.
The Popout! module is disabled for Hourglass Timer windows due to compatibility issues.
