Recipe Book  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.3.2 BETA 2
by: ayradyss [More]

RecipeBook is a mod that allows you to browse tradeskill recipes with one alt and see whether your other alts know it.


************ PLEASE NOTE ******************

I apologize to everyone who's been with me for the last three and a half years (wow!) but I'm putting the addon on Inactive status. We are expecting our second baby Any Day Now and the lifestyle and financial changes that brings have forced me out - I don't have the time to maintain it and I'm barely logging into WoW as it is, so it doesn't make sense for me to try and spend what interest I can muster in the game into coding.

If someone wants to pick things up I will be happy to cede the addon over to someone else but I just can't do it.


Also: Your data WILL NOT carry over from old (prior to 3.0.2) versions.
****************************************


For example:
I have character BetsyRoss, who is a tailor by nature. She knows Pattern: American Flag, but for some reason, I can never remember this when UncleScrooge goes to the aucthouse to buy patterns.
* Previously, I would have to keep a written or mental list of BetsyRoss's known patterns so that UncleScrooge didn't buy her a second copy of Pattern: American Flag on accident.
* Now, with RecipeBook, UncleScrooge can mouse over Pattern: American Flag and see "Already known by: BetsyRoss" right there on the tooltip - or, if he chooses, in a special chat tab just for RecipeBook information.

It's fun! It's helpful! It's easy to use! It's also still in development, so there are a few known issues and some miscellaneous housework to be done.

RecipeBook is most easlily managed using the minimap button and integrated menus. However, there are some slash commands for those who prefer them:

Usage: /recipebook or /rbk or /rbook <options>
* General:
- /rbk help : Displays a help message
- /rbk on|off : Turns RecipeBook's data display on or off. It will continue to update alts' tradeskills when the tradeskill frames are opened, so you have the best list possible.
- /rbk config : Opens the graphical config window.
- /rbk skill: Open the skill browse window, which allows you to browse known recipes by character and tradeskill.

* Sharing:
- /rbk send <alt> to <player> : Sends your RecipeBook data for a given alt to another player. Use 'all' as your alt to send all alts you know. Use 'me' to send just your character.
- /rbk update from <player> : Requests an update of RecipeBook data from another player.


* Banking:
-/rbk bank : Displays your banked items and banking options

* Finding Recipes:
- /rbk search <item> : Searches for items containing the given string.
- /rbk searchmats <item> : Searches for items using materials which match the given string.

* Auction House Options (only available via /rbk config):
- Color Recipes based on status: This will shade the icons for recipes you see in the Auction House based on whether other alts can learn them.
- Default color scheme is as follows (in order of precedence):
- Normal : Current alt can learn the recipe
- Green : Another alt can currently learn the recipe
- Orange : Current alt is the only character who will be able to learn the recipe (requires /rbk self on)
- Cyan : Some alt or alts will be able to learn the recipe (may include current character)
- Red : No alt/alts will be able to learn the recipe, based on current data
- Dark Red : All available alts already know the recipe
- Blackout Banked Recipes: This will shade the icons for recipes that you have banked black in the Auction House so that you can tell you already have a copy.

* Debugging functions
- /rbk debug : Turns on debug mode
- /rbk verbose : Turns on verbose send mode.

Known issues:
* RecipeBook only updates its recipe list when your tradeskill window is open. So, if BetsyRoss just learned Pattern: Giant American Flag, she'll have to open her Tailoring window before RecipeBook (or UncleScrooge) knows about it.

Housekeeping:
* Hopes for next phase: Updating your recipe list when you learn items (in progress).

Compatibilities:
The easiest way to add RecipeBook compatibility to *your* mod is to call the following in your tooltip output:
RecipeBook_DoHookedFunction(tooltip, link);
Where tooltip is the tooltip (or tooltip name) you're using and link is the item link itself. That will add RecipeBook's data lines.

Special thanks to:
Curse Gaming's Pentarion and Ghandi, for some hard work helping me debug the German client version. Particularly to Pentarion for ongoing translation work.


PLEASE NOTE: If you learn a new recipe, you will have to open your appropriate tradeskill window to update RecipeBook's database. Hopefully this will change soon.

3.3.2:
- THIS VERSION WILL WIPE YOUR DATA. RecipeBook will clear its database on first loading - this means that EVERYTHING will need to be reloaded: character skills, cached items, everything. I'm having trouble with old (uncached) data again.
- THIS VERSION WILL RESET MOST OPTIONS. I made some changes for the color-coding customization.
FIXED:
- Guild Bank items should now tooltip correctly once again.
- Several small changes in the code should now clarify whether the "RecipeBook data not yet loaded" error stems from a blank DB or a lag concern, and help eliminate it recurring.
!NEW!
+ Color customization added: Check the "colors" tab in the RecipeBook UI for an option to change the colors of items and text.
+ If RecipeBook cannot quickly load all of your recipe/reagent data, it will now give you a popup message to that effect. Clicking "Accept" will attempt to force-load all of the tradeskill data.
- This replaces the "Some items were not scanned for this tradeskill" and "Some reagents for this tradeskill's items were not yet in local cache" messages that were previously in your chat frame.
- This scan may lag the UI intermittently; do not do it when you are doing things that are control-intensive.
- You have the option of clicking "Cancel" which will wait for the next time RecipeBook updates to check again.
- Doing this scan in Dalaran or other high-lag areas may require a little time. You will be updated periodically on the status of the deep scan.
BETA 2:
- THIS VERSION WILL RESET DEFAULT OPTIONS. Whoops, I didn't check my set defaults closely enough.
- TRANSLATIONS NEEDED: I have hacked a few lines and changed some others so that the non-English clients should stop erroring on popup.
- Tidied up the help messages to stop suggesting /rb when it doesn't work any longer :)
- When someone new shares data with you it should now show up without requiring a reload of the UI.
- Using the minimap icon to select a RecipeBook tab while the RecipeBook window is open now correctly loads that tab.

Funny Bug

I have discovered a rather amusing bug with Alpha 8.

I was mousing over a Draenei in Dalaran when his tooltip became an item!
It turns out that if GameTooltip is showing with a person's name, or if it's a mailbox or whatever, it often becomes a tooltip for an item link posted in Trade channel. It doesn't happen when more than one link is in the message.

Here's a screenshot:


Other tooltip modifying addons I use are: CowTip, Engravings, SellFish and Overachiever.

Attempts to link items from the tradeskill window to chat are erroring out, however, clicking on the list entry instead of the item will generate a [tradeskill: item] chat entry. I will capture the error dialog the next time it happens and post it here for you.

Banked Sharing not showing

I know in the patch notes you said Basic sharing seems to be working so not sure if this is included in that or not or I may be misremembering. I am using the current version posted here, 3.0.2 Alpha 8.

I have two accounts and share RB data between the characters on the accounts and keep the databases updated regularly. I am no longer seeing "Banked by XXXX" if a recipe is banked by a character on the other account that I'm not logged into at the time (This is what I may be misremembering. I thought it did at one time). It does show the message for any other character on the account I'm logged in with.

Also many times when I learn a new recipe the database does not update. I get the message saying I have learned XXXX but no message about updating after I open the skill panel until I log out and back in.

Something seems to have changed between Alpha 6 (the last one I had) and Alpha 8 which is making pickups of newly-learned tradeskills much more reliable. Great work! And thanks for RecipeBook.

Alpha version 8 is up. I'm not seeing any AH errors, in addition to the patch notes above.

I'm aware that zoning seems to interfere with recipe tracking, but wanted to get these fixes/features out first

At the moment I know which characters know which recipes / patterns / schematics they know thanks to mods like RecipeBook and CraftList2. The problem is that there's currently no way to get the same info for companions and mounts across all of my characters.

So why add it to RecipeBook? Well, it kind of fits with the who "Already known" "Can learn" tooltip thing. I know it's a tenuous connection but there you have it
Let me consider that as a separate addon issue when I have a little free time

Thank you again for RecipeBook - it's a terrific utility.
I do appreciate both the bug report and the "more details" - hopefully now that my horrendous 24-on 12-off schedule is cleared up I'll be able to address the bug.

Re: Taint/Blocked Action

Originally posted by JMHammer
Great mod, I love it!

RecipeBook is causing a taint/blocked action popup to appear whenever the "Set Focus" option is chosen from the target dropdown menu. This is happening with ANY mod which has dropdown menus with more than 18 items listed per menu.

Since it is a bug on Blizzard's end, the only workaround I know of is for authors to adjust their mods so that no dropdown menus include more than 18 items.

Thanks again for this great mod!
Well, that's annoying as heck. I'll start counting. :P
