Quick Auctions 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v3.1
by: Shadowed [More]

Quick Auctions is an auction tool to help speed up auctioning large quantities of items, especially canceling. While primarily Quick Auctions is built for large quantities of items, it can work fine for a few auctions as well. A bit of tweaking is required to get optimal settings, but it is very flexible and smart enough that you can use it for more than just mindlessly undercutting auctions by 1 copper every time. Summary window and craft queues are included so you do not have to memorize every item and quantity you need. Shows total materials required to craft as well as allowing you to click from the craft queue to craft so no searching through everything.

Slash command: /qa (/quickauctions)

Donations
A lot of time went into Quick Auctions, donations are appreciated but not necessary. And it's cheaper than buying gold while not being against the ToS!



Groups
Groups are how you manage what items should be managed by Quick Auctions. You can set auction settings either as a default, or per group giving you flexibility over everything without having to duplicate your settings 50 times. There are no limits to how many items can be grouped, see the configuration in /qa config to set them up.

Mail
Includes a timer in the top left of the mailbox indicating how much time before new mail data becomes available, and if you are not using Postal then QA provides its own auto looting for mail. The auto looter will work with the timer on the mailbox cache so it will loot everything, wait until new mail is available and then keep looting.

Auto mailing can now be done per item or per group to any character you want. For example, you can setup your banker to send uncut gems to your jeweler and you can setup your jeweler to send cut gems to your banker. The auto mailer is intelligent in when it sends mail off, and works best when using QA mail looter. If you are trying to loot herbs from your mailbox while auto mailing them to your scribe, it will send mail off whenever it sees your inventory is full. Basically, if you have 4 open slots it will auto mail/loot with only 4 slots, no more clearing out your bags to loot mail anymore!

General options

  • Smart undercutting - Instead of always using the undercut value, it will round it to the nearest gold piece if possible (10g99s -> 10g, 5g -> 5g - undercut price)
  • Smart cancel - Cancels auctions a bit smarter than usual, will cancel an item if you can re list it at a higher price and won't cancel it if items are below the threshold
  • Cancel with bid - Lets you choose if you want to cancel auctions with bids on them

Item options
  • Auto mail - Automatically mail items directly to your banker that are managed by QA
  • Post cap - How many of an item can be up at any one time (If you are undercut this number is reset)
  • Post time - How long to post an auction
  • Undercut - How much to undercut by
  • Bid percent - How much bid should be set to as a percentage of buyout
  • Threshold - Cap on how low an auction can go, if it'll be posted below the threshold price it won't be posted
  • Per auction - How many items to post per an auction
  • Fallback - If no other auctions are up, how much should it list an item for
  • Fallback cap - How high above the fallback an item can go, helps prevent posting a single Frostweave Cloth at 100g if someone sets it at an extraordinary price
  • Auto fallback - If the market price is below your thresold, QA will automatically post it at the fallback price
  • Maximum price gap - How much of a price difference is allowed between the lowest and second lowest items before QA undercuts the second lowest, this will also cancel your auctions if the price gap gets too high
  • Ignore stacks over - Allows you to ignore any auctions with a stack above X when determining price, useful if you want to post against the market price of 1 Abyss Crystal rather than the market price of posting 20 at once
What changed between 2 and 3?
While the configuration in QA2 was an improvement over the original QA, it still wasn't good enough. QA3 has a rewritten configuration and should be much easier for people to understand and use without having to learn to use QA through trial and error.

Scan speed has been increased quite a bit again and has been tightened up to reduce the chance of conflicts. In previous versions, QA would Query -> Wait 0.50 seconds -> Check Data -> Either parse it or wait 0.50 seconds, this made sure that whenever auctions were scanned all data was available including who posted them. The problem is, most of this data becomes available instantly after your initial 1-3 seconds. In 3 it's been changed: Query -> Check Data -> Wait 0.50 Seconds -> Parse or wait 0.50 seconds. Best case this means you will save 0.50 seconds per query (50 seconds/100 items), and worse case you won't see any speed increase.

Mail has been improved to make life easier for people, both a mail scrapper and a smarter mail sender were added. See the mail section above for more information.

Setting scope was improved, most basic options in QA including group settings have been moved to the global profile while server/faction specific settings can still be changed per profile. Letting you setup different profiles of how QA should handle different groups, without having to duplicate all of your group list over and over.
QA3 isn't done yet, and I have more planned still like summary improvements and easy buying of items.

Shadowed:
- Fix positioning of tradeskill frame
- Fixes for 4.3
- Fix tradeskill button positioning
- Should make canceling work again with hardware events
- Make open all work again, add posting back with necessary hardware event work, some initial work on canceling
- Initial conversions to WoWAce, nothing should actually work yet

One thing I can't seem to figure out how to set what length of time my auctions are being automatically posted for. Is there an option for 12h, 24h, and 48h?

Having trouble with post auctions. It keeps bugging out and after I post auctions it sits at 0/0 and I have to relog in order to fix it. This only started happening after I updated it today.
I had a issue sometimes when i post my auctions.
Posts are too fast and stopped.
Unfortunately I got the same problem and have to reload the UI about 5-6 times while trying to post all of 200-300 glyphs (3 of each kind).
The code hack from below doesn't help either.

Edit: Just noticed that in case everything has worked perfectly (means: I still can see the normal "Post" button, not the "0/0" one) not all the glyphs are being posted, so I have to run the post routine some more times. Sometimes gems are also affected.

Edit # 2: I assume this might be caused by splitting the stacks. Nothing wrong happens if I split them up by myself.

Great Addon, Thank you :-)

I have a little () feature-request. I set the cap to 2 and QA post 2 Items. Anyone undercuts me. A new run of QA post an other 2 Items with a new price. Can I have the old 2 items canceled ? For now, I have 4 (2+2) auctions but a cap of 2. That will reduce the items I have to stock.

And an other question, what do I have to do to get the Addon run with a german client?

A few questions / requests :
1. Isn`t it possible that when I do a Post / Scan or Get Data from the Summary to gather all the info required for the others and store it / use it for the other actions as well. Ofcourse a time to live option should be available.
2. I`ve been using AuctionLite and it has a FastScan option that downloads the whole content of the auction house in seconds for me (~1mb / sec). Is it possible to implement that ?
3. Could you add support for using the information provided by addons like Bank Items so the Summary tab can use the info from other chars/banks and the Craft Queue can use the bank contents when showing material requirements.

When you do fast scans like that it doesn't always get the name of the sellers which would cause some problems I think.

He's talking about the get all scan mode, which (usually) DC's people and is only really useful for summary requests.

Chicola: A lot apparently, I need to go back over the code and update it so it'll work correctly for other localizations.

Mederi: Sorry meant to respond sooner, it's not going to work fully until I can go over and update everything to make it localization independent which I don't have time to do for the next few weeks.

Naniad, in your bug report which cap are you talking about specifically? I see no reason it would post every single item if only you and your whitelist are posting, so I'm guessing it's something else.

Bug

Shadowed,

I love your addon it's saved me a ridiculous amount of time. I just wanted to let you know that for the past few days I've also been having the problem that theyre reporting regarding it not posting all auctions. I haven't been experiencing any lag or anything and I even disabled auctioneer in the thought that perhaps my db was getting too large that constantly updating it via quickauctions scans was slowing it down. What happens is that it runs through the scan and posts all but about 5 items or so. When I look at the items individually there doesn't appear to be a reason for not posting them (not hitting cap, threshold, etc) and when I try to immediately run another posting it scans through and then freezes on the post auction phase saying -1/0 or something along those lines. A reloadui is then required to make another attempt but generally just does the same thing..sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

I hope this info helps you..if there is anything else I can provide please let me know.

Bluemangroop: It's an annoying issue I haven't had time to fix, it's on my list of things to look at but I have other projects that take priority right now.

Gogursl: There is no auto buy option, you have to buy materials manually.

Well the cap! For example my cap for posting gems is 3 lets say. So I hit post and it posts 3 gems.

Now the other day another guy and I were the only ones that had a specific gem up. So he sends me a tell asking to cancel mine so we can raise the price since it had dropped so low. So I added him to my whitelist (actually at this point was thinking would have been nice to able to whitelist some people on an per item basis) and posted the gem at the price he set.

However instead of posting only 3 gems it posted all the ones I had on me (well actually it may have posted 3 and then kept posting them every time I did a new post). Only thing I could think of was the addon considered me undercut on that gem but was also matching the only other price on there so it still considered it undercut as I didn't have 3 auctions undercutting another.

Gogursl: there is another program I use for buying my mats, it buys a set amount not what QA asks for but you can set it before you open the window with the vendor. I'll post the name (I'm at work) but I had to replace some files to get it all working, it may be easier for me to zip up mine for you but I must say it's way faster. I can buy 300 parchments in 5 sec.

this is what I'm using with some Ace2 updates

Send me a msg if anyone wants it.
