LilSparky's Workshop  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 119release
by: lilsparky [More]

LilSparky's Workshop adds auction-derived pricing information for trade skills right into the trade skill recipe frame. Each skill is evaluated for material costs and potential value of the item created. These two numbers are listed next to each skill in an easy-to-read format.

Supported Auction Scanners:

* Auctioneer
* AuctionLite
* AuctionMaster
* Auctionator

Trade Skill Interfaces Supported:

* GnomeWorks
* AdvancedTradeSkillWindow
* Skillet
* Blizzard's Standard UI
* Doublewide Tradeskills
* Tradeskill HD
* MrTrader
* Jobber

Optionally Requires:

* Informant
* LibPeriodicTable
(these mods will assist in identifying vendor sourced items)


Auction pricing models can be selected by right-clicking either the value column or the cost column (each can have a different pricing method attached).

The Value column can be left clicked to cycle through the different valuation methods for the resultant item: Auction Value (a), Vendor Value (v), Disenchant Value (d) or the greatest of the three different values (the default). Any instance of an item Value being greater than the Cost to create it will have a highlighted Value entry. Optionally, the Value column can be displayed as a percentage of the Cost column.

The Cost column simply sums up the costs for each reagent and reports the total.

Both columns can be combined into a single "Profit" column which simply reflects the Value minus the Cost.

Tooltips for each column give more details about the price breakdowns LSW is considering.


Right clicking on the cost column will bring up a menu offering the ability to override item price and vendor availability on a per-reagent basis.

Ok, so I'm a noob at this addon (just downloaded it today at the recommendation of a friend), and I'm having trouble getting the display to sort based on profitablility. Based on the comments here, I downloaded Skillet to use in conjunction with this mod, but when I try to sort using the LSW options, it doesn't actually seem to sort. Can't seem to find anything else in the comments to fix what's happening. If there's a better tradeskill window to use for this addon i'd be willing to switch, since I'm not really hooked to the current one. Of course, I'm not ruling out the possibility of me just missing an option or something. For what it's worth, I'm looking at this for characters that have alchemy, cooking, inscription, and enchanting, mainly.

Also, I didn't get this at first, but after logging out and back in, I'm getting an error about the addon trying to compare to nil. I'm guessing that has to do with it not having data to build a price on and me needing to do more AH scans?

Edit: Here's the error from Improved error frame:
Error: attempt to compare number with nil
AddOn: LilSparkysWorkshop
File: lilsparkysworkshop.lua
Line: 1387
Count: 11

EDIT 2: Got rid of the error by deleting the saved variable files for lilsparky :/
Any help with these would be appreciated
i've had other people report problems with the skillet sorting, so i'll take a look.

i have my own branch of skillet available at www.wowace.com that adds a lot of improvements (and a bug or two ). that version is available as a clone of the main branch.

but again, i'll look into the sorting code to make sure it's okay.

as soon as my current branch stablizes a bit more, i'll upload it here. with r76 at curse, you can hit alt to see how many auctions are up (or how many are the basis of the auction price -- it kind of depends on the pricing model) and how many of those items are in your inventory are in parenthesis. it's only using the standard blizz api at the moment for item counts, tho...

hiya sparky. i havent used the enchanting updates much since you updated them but i will be doing so this week.

i have been making so much cash from inscription that i havent bothered much to try and make cash from my other professions.

to help manage my inscription crafting it is useful to know how many of each glyph i currently have in stock at a glance (without mousing over the item to read the tooltip) as well as their sale price. to achieve my desired funtionality i altered the function you use to show the items level.

Code:
if recipeID then
     buttonValue:Show()
     if itemID>0 and LSWConfig.showLevel then
	local _, _, quality, _, itemLevel = GetItemInfo(itemID)
	if itemLevel then
             	local r,g,b,hex = GetItemQualityColor(quality)
		if (itemLevel == 0) then
             		itemLevel = "1"
		end
		buttonLevel.text:SetText(hex..itemLevel)
		buttonLevel:Show()
	end
	else
		buttonLevel.text:SetText(Altoholic:GetItemCount(itemID))
		buttonLevel:Show()
	end
else
perhaps you could consider adding this functionality yourself. i prefer the Altoholic item count over ArkInventory because Altoholic includes items currently in the AH, Guild Vault, Bank, Alts inventory, Own inventory.

Thanks again for all the hard work,

Anti

yeah, that's a known issue with the latest atsw. you can fix it by going into atsw.lua and changing line 40 to remove the "local" from "local atsw_skilllisting = {}"

i have a new beta that fixes this, but i want to make sure it's a little more stable before uploading it here.

Oh, right. Well if I can't add up the vellum cost myself I probably don't deserve to be using the mod anyway...

No biggy, I just need to sell a few or scan some more so I actually find a market. That may explain what you heard of not always seeing price info though, it can be easy to confuse where prices are coming from in that mountain of stuff they call Auctioneer.

I've got the latest ATSW so I'll just disable it for now, or maybe even try out a different doublewide frame. As much as I like the extra space it's less important than having profit information!

Also while I'm thinking about it I'll try to remember to post the IDs if I somehow stumble over one of the enchant scrolls you didn't get.
oh right the ATSW issue. it's cuz ATSW went to local variables for the data storage. go to line 40 of the atsw.lua file and remove the "local" from the "local atsw_skilllisting= {}" line. that should fix it.

Surprises me really that I've still never found a single other mod that does this, it seems like showing profitability is something every tradeskill user would want.
the version here shouldn't be broken... weird.

there is another mod that came out this year (or late last year) that does something similar to lsw, but i think the guy might have stopped developing it a couple months ago. it only works with the standard trade frame and with skillet and i don't think gives as much of a breakdown as lsw. it DOES however have a more obvious name (something like "tradeskill profit max") so it's actually gotten like twice the d/l's as lsw in 1/4 of the time!

the wowace version should be useable, but it's alpha so beware. some price info seems to not show up and i haven't really paid complete attention to verifying accuracy.
