Much is an addon for inscriptors that creates a little macro for you called "Mass Milling". Clicking on this macro will cause Much to mill the first stack of plants that has more than 5 items in it that it finds. Clicking it again will mill the next stack and so on. This allows you to quickly and easily mill all of the plants that you've collected.
Ignoring Certain Plants
You can tell Much to ignore plants that are either too low level or too high level. For example, the following command will tell Much to ignore any plant with an item level lower than 60:
/much lower 60
To tell Much to ignore any plant with an item level higher than 70, for example, you would use:
/much upper 70
For those of you who prefer to play with WoW's autoloot setting off, Much can now autoloot your pigments for you. This setting defaults to off, and can be toggled using:
Please note that this option has only been tested on English clients, although it should also work on Spanish, French and German clients. If anyone would like to help by providing me with translations of other languages, please see the localisations section below.
Much will now display a different icon depending on what state it is in. These icons are:
Skull and Crossbones: Disabled.
Sleepy: Much has nothing to do (not enough herbs).
Hiding in bushes: Much is keeping out of the way whilst you are in combat.
Mortar and Pestle: Much is ready to mill upon your command.
In addition, when Much is in the ready state it will display how many items you possess of the next plant that will be milled (so if it has chosen to mill some Goldclover and you have 10 of that plant in your bags, the number 10 will be displayed over the macro icon on your action bar). You can now also hold your mouse over the macro icon on your action bar and the tooltip will show which plant Much has chosen to mill.
The commands that Much will accept are:
/much all - Resets Much to mill all plants.
/much lower <itemlevel> - Tells Much to ignore all plants with an item level lower than <itemlevel>. If you do not specify an item level then Much will have no lower limit.
/much upper <itemlevel> - Tells Much to ignore all plants with an item level higher than <itemlevel>. If you do not specify an item level then Much will have no upper limit.
/much outlands - Tells Much to only mill plants that can be found in the Outlands.
/much northrend - Tells Much to only mill plants that can be found in Northrend.
/much autoloot - Toggles autolooting of pigments.
/much settings - Shows the current settings.
/much help - Displays the comprehensive help.
If you don't supply an argument (or the arguments are not recognised), Much will output a list of acceptable commands.
Much is currently an English-only addon, with the exception of the autolooting functionality which should work in English, French, German and Spanish clients. However, the strings it uses are in the MuchLocal table at the end of the much.lua file. If anyone would like to translate them and send me the results, I'll update Much.
If you have two or more seperate stacks of a certain plant, each containing less than 5 plants, Much will ignore both stacks even if you have more than 5 of that plant in total. This is because WoW insists that the stack you are attempting to mill needs to have at least 5 items or it will throw an error. If you come across this issue, restacking your inventory will resolve it (there are some addons that will help with this, such as BankStack, and some bag addons include this functionality too).
