Altoholic

Version: 7.0.003
by: Thaoky [More]

Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic

Altoholic is an Ace 3 addon written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one addon. The main feature of the addon is the search functionality which allows users to search their alts' bags or loot tables in an Auction-House-like frame (see screenshots). All this with multiple-realms/accounts support.

Paypal donations accepted at : [email protected]

I've been playing WoW since the European release, and I used to rely on addons like character viewer to check my alts' inventory, but since it was more or less abandoned and not always stable for me, I decided to write an addon myself and to improve the search feature as much as I could. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do

The addon has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It's still not final, and although it has considerably evolved since the initial release, there are still a lot of things I haven't had time to implement yet.
Please note that this is my first addon, and that English is not my native language.

Features:

- Languages supported: enUS, frFR, deDE, esES, ruRU, zhCN & zhTW.

- Account-wide data summary:

• Characters' talents: Full talent trees & glyphs are supported for both specializations.
• Money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account.
• Bag usage: see at a glance which characters should get bigger bags (bag size, free slots and types included)
• Characters' skills: skill summary on one screen, namely the 2 main professions + the 3 secondary skills as well as riding. I may add more if there's demand. Profession cooldowns included.
• Reputations: a list of all the reputations of the current realm's characters. You can see at a glance if all your alts are at least honored with Honor Hold if you want to get the new 2.4 blue PVP set. Suggestions on how to gring reputations will be available soon.

- View containers (bags, bank, keyring) of all alts, on all realms.

- Guild banks : You have 10 alts in 10 different guilds on the same server, all of them with access to a guild bank ? Not a problem, you can see them all here.

- E-mail: allows you to see which alts have mail without having to reconnect them. The addon will tell you when mail is about to expire on a character. Threshold configurable (up to 15 days). Multiple realm support as well. Mails sent to a known alt (one you've logged on at least once) will be visible in the addon without having to reconnect it.

- Equipment: See the equipment of the current realm's alts in one screen. Very useful when purchasing stuff for your alts at the AH. Multiple realms supported. Right-clicking any equipment piece will allow you to find an upgrade, this feature is similar to the official wow armory feature, and is quite performant, even though it doesn't match the accuracy of the official one.

- Search: the most important feature of the addon, it uses an AH-like frame to display search results. You can either search bags on the current realm, on all realms, or a loot table.
The loot table is a table based on AtlasLoot, but which contains only item id's, and therefore keeps memory usage minimal.

The Search menu allows you to find items based on their name (even partial), level, type or rarity, almost like at the AH. It is also possible to search known recipes.

- Quest Log: See the quest logs of all your alts, as well as an indication of which alts are on a specific quest. Clicking on a quest link in the chat log will tell you which alts are on that quest.

- Suggestions: Currently, only profession leveling suggestions are available when mousing over your current level in a specific profession. Suggestions are based on the leveling guides posted on the official US forums (credit goes to their respective authors). The addon also suggests you where to quest/grind xp depending on your character level.

Suggestions were also added for the most recent factions. More to come later.

- Auction house: You can see which auctions/bids you've placed with an alt without being logged in or being at the AH.

- Professions: You can browse all known recipes in a thotbot like frame (see screenshot).

- Mounts & Pets of all your alts.

- Achievements are tracked for all you alts (see screenshot).

- Guild Members: a list of your connected guildmates, along with their alts (if they're using Altoholic too), and their average item level. Clicking their AiL will also allow you to "remotely" inspect their equipment.

- Guild Skills: a list of altoholic users in your guild, along with their alts and direct profession links. All professions are available in one click.

- Guild Bank tabs: a list of altoholic users and the time at which they last visited the guild bank. If you haven't visited the guild bank for a few days, you can remotely update your local data without going to a capital city.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As with every new expansion, many things have changed in the API, and it is REQUIRED to clear your Saved Variables for the addon.
This means cleaning the following files in \WTF\Account\<your_account>\SavedVariables : Altoholic.lua & All DataStore*.lua

There WILL be bugs if you use your old files without cleaning them first.
Some fixes to work around API changes are too time consuming, so cleaning is required. A meager price to pay once per expansion.

7.0.003 (27/07/2016)

- Profession level cap raised to 800.
- Fixed the counts not being shown in the item tooltip when mousing over a craft reagent in the tradeskill UI.
- Fixed a Lua error when clicking on a recipe link in the chat log.
- Fixed a Lua error when checking the guild bank tab.
- DataStore_Talents: Rewrote scanning of talent information, UI will come back in a future release.

7.0.002 (20/07/2016)

- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed a few Lua errors.
- DataStore_Mails: Fixed the invalid attachment counts in the tooltip (note: you will have to visit the mailboxes that have a wrong count to correct it, it's not a display error, it's a database error)

7.0.001 (19/07/2016)

- REMINDER : CLEANING YOUR SAVED VARIABLES IS MANDATORY FOR 7.0 (YES I'M SHOUTING ! :D)
- Various fixes to support 7.0 API changes.
- Glyph UI has been removed.
- Tabard UI has been removed.

Note : I've been extremely busy with big projects & responsibilities at work in the past months (year ? .. almost!), but 21/07 is national day in Belgium so it's a long weekend over here, I'll have time to follow-up on 7.0 and release extra changes.
I expect the rest of the year to keep quite busy given our current planning, hopefully 2017 should be quieter (and I'll have a long holiday in December, yay !).

That's a problem that I've encountered on very very rare occasions, and since I've never been able to reproduce it, so I don't know what's causing it.
If by any chance it happens more often for you than it does for me, you can try to find out what causes it (if there's any logic behind it that is) and let me know.

Typing /console reloadui should normally fix the problem, and you should not delete your SV file, as it's not related to the DB. My assumption is that ingame events are not always triggered in the same order on every machine, and that machine performance may impact this order. It's just a guess though.

I don't have an extensive knowledge of all existing libraries, but all I know is that everytime I look for something specific, it's not in any of the libs I search. I recently looked into LibPeriodicTable to get rid of the recipe problem (reported as "could be learned by" when it's already known), but the info is not in there.

The actual problem, and I understand it, is that such libs require a lot of efforts, just look at what the atlas loot team has to put in to make it as valuable as it is.

Regarding the loot table, I reworked it manually because the table layout I'm using is more efficient for searches. It's also much easier to code a search using my table layout than that of AtlasLoot, and theirs also contain much more info than mine (like localized item names, item prices, etc..), which goes beyond the scope of Altoholic.

That said, if the whole thing turned into an efficient library, I would be happy to use it

There are a few things I'd like to finalize, but I think I'll try to get in touch with Daviesh & his team soon, to see if something could be done about this.

I agree

Almost all my guild uses it, and I really love the guild skills part. I intend to add support for offline members + the ability to search into the professions of your guildmates as if you were searching your own, it will be even better

 02-10-09, 03:32 AM Thaoky An Aku'mai Servant Forum posts: 30 File comments: 630 Uploads: 2 Perfect timing. I am currently working on this tab, and I already reworked the containers part. It's now a single entry in the dropdown menu. Don't forget that many of these sections are reachable by a simple click in the main panes, and that there's a right-click menu too. I do like the suggestion though, and I may gather some of the options as you suggested. Going to buttons instead of a DDM is an interesting idea, I'll make a few tests and see what's the best option. Thanks
 02-09-09, 11:49 AM AnrDaemon A Flamescale Wyrmkin Forum posts: 133 File comments: 2499 Uploads: 6 Just came up with idea... dunno if it easily achievable, but here some mind food: What if you implement character selection as column of character faces on the left side of Altoholic frame? You need place for nine buttons per realm, with 10'th button going to top-left as selected character face. Then leave realm selector as is and buttonize category selector. [Containers] [Conts All-in-1] [Equipment] [Auctions] [Bids] [Mail] [Companions] [Mounts] [Reputation] [Achievements] [Cooking] [1st Aid] [Prof 1] [Prof 2] Less clicks... faster browsing.
