MillHelp  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.14
by: Starinnia [More]
MillHelp is a simple addon that displays which pigments will be produced when the herb is milled on the herb's tooltip and the herbs needed on the ink tooltips.
  • Show common and uncommon results for pigments (common in white, uncommon in green)
  • If an ink uses common pigments the herbs are shown in white
  • If an ink uses uncommon pigments the herbs are shown in green

If you want to display the "Milling:" and "From:" headings, type /script MILLHELP_HEADER = true, if later you wish to remove the header type /script MILLHELP_HEADER = nil

These commands change the saved variable for the addon, so the command will set the option until you change it back.

Item Cache
Previous versions required user interaction to ensure the local item cache was up to date after a patch. New versions (2.0 and beyond) handle this task automatically. While the cache is being updated, some items might display "Updating Cache" instead of the milling and inscription information. Once the updating process is complete, simply mouse-over the items again and you will see the useful information. Updating the cache takes roughly one minute from when your character logs into the game.

Feedback
Comments, tickets or the forum thread are all great places to suggest features or report bugs. Of the three, replies to comments will be the slowest but I will read them eventually.

Localization
If anyone could assist in finishing support for the other WoW languages I would greatly appreciate it. To get full support for all locales, I just need Simplified Chinese (zhCN). Submit the localized strings as a ticket or send me an email or post on a comment with a link. Thanks!



Note: I took the screen shots with my full UI, so the tooltip has lines from Bagnon and MobileVault. Only the lines "Milling" and after are from MillHelp.

I already have a mod that tells me how many I have on which toons, is that part of this mod, or separate?

Seperate, I took the screen shot with Bagnon and MobileVault enabled too. Only the part with and after "Milling:" is from MillHelp.

Just a quick question, does this only show herbs that are in your bag or will it also show in the tooltip of herbs on the worldmap and minimap?

Only herbs in your bags/bank/chat links. I only hook the tooltips that are generated by actual items, not objects in the 3D world.

That is caused because the patch removed your local item cache. As soon as you have seen all the inks and pigments that error will stop. I'm trying to find a good way to automatically query the server so that error won't happen, but I have finals soon, so my priorities are towards school at the moment.

Wanted to let everyone know that the newest version will not error when your item cache is missing information. You'll get an alert in your chat frame telling you to type /millhelp. That will open a window that will show you what items are missing from your cache. Right clicking will query the server, and the items will update when you mouse back over the text.

(I'll prolly add mousing in or out to update at some later date, but I wanted to do something to fix it up quickly.)

Addon conflict:

Millhelp + Molinari

For some reason, when both are active I cannot ALT+RCLICK to mill herbs.

Also posted to other addon.

I installed Molinari to test this, and I was able to ALT + LCLICK to mill herbs successfully. And even without Millhelp installed ALT + RCLICK never worked to mill the herbs.

From the top of Molinari.lua it seems only left clicks are registered.

The Glyphs module is set to be load on demand, so that it can load with the main MillHelp addon.

MillHelp (the core) can be delayed in loading because it is AddonLoader enabled, so to ensure proper load order the Glyphs module only loads with the core. To use the LoadsWith tag in the .toc file it also has to be load-on-demand.

If you want you can open MillHelp_Glyphs.toc and remove the LoadOnDemand and LoadsWith lines, although it still has a required dependency of the MillHelp core.

If the problem is neither part of the addon is loading, make sure you do not have AddonLoader installed but disabled, that would make nothing load at all.
