Profession AddOns

Due to the increasing data size and memory usage with each WoW expansion, the professions have been split into their own AddOns; you need only download the ones you'll be using. Each installed and enabled profession AddOn will load whenever it's first accessed by the ARL core.

You can either download the Ackis Recipe List Addon Pack which has Ackis Recipe List's core and all profession AddOns, or install the profession AddOns separately:

Note that Ackis Recipe List will not work without the AddOn for the profession you are trying to scan. If you attempt to scan a profession that is not installed, you will be informed.

Known Issues

  • When gaining a reputation level recipes for that faction will still appear in red when doing a scan.
  • Recipe acquire information is slightly inaccurate. We are updating recipes daily as information is identified. If you find something inaccurate or wrong, submit a ticket here and we will get it updated.

Feature Requests/Bug Reporting

Read the Bug Reporting and Feature Requesting information before submitted a bug report or feature request. Posting reports in the comments is not the place to do so. Ackis had to turn off the comments at Curse.com because of constant bug reports and feature requests. Comments are for questions on how to use the mod, or you can see the thread on WoW Ace. Please follow these small little instructions to make our lives easier. The easier you make development for Ackis Recipe List, the more time we will have to develop other addons.

Bug Reports

Please use the WoW Ace tracker to file bug reports. Posting bugs in the comments is not the place to do it.

Feature Request

Please use the WoW Ace tracker to add suggestions and feature requests. Not all suggestions will be accepted: there are many people who use this addon, each with separate views. We will, however, try to make it as user friendly as possible...but when a decision is made please accept it.

Integration

Ackis Recipe List strives to integrate with existing trade skill mods out there. If you have a request for integration, please submit a feature request at WoW Ace. We make no promises to implement the feature at all. There is a limited API documented to interface with the ARL database. If you are a developer and would like more functions, please contact us on IRC. Currently, the mod works with:

    Would you please make available a Pack of all the Ackis Recipe List Addons for download. It is a nuisance to add a further 12 downloads to the regular cycle of addon downloads.

    Incidentally, the addons are small compared to any other addon and thus there is minimal gain by splitting, only added hassle in management. Also, since a user of Ackis Recipe List scans the recipes of their guild mates and friends only the rare person that isn't in a guild and doesn't have any friends could have any gain from this minor reduction in size.

    @Torhal: you are correct that this partially solves the old problem with the waste of space and overwrite cycles for files without changes but now we have to watch 12 addons for changes. Plus all the confusion this change will cause while the userbase realizes why ARL isn't working.

    I think a separation to 2 addons (core and professions) would be a better solution than to 12.

    As you said earlier, people tend to delete the ones they don't want. They also don't even download them. If you look at the download statistics for each of the modules, you'll see that roughly half of them are downloaded roughly half as many times as the highest downloaded AddOn.

    And to reiterate: If you want all 11 professions, you only have to download them once.

    Also you should consider adding a module detection so the addon will know what is present when loaded and not try to load the missing ones for the people that tend to delete the ones they don't use.

    It only attempts to load a profession AddOn when you click the Scan button. If it fails, you'll see a popup stating that the profession AddOn is disabled or not installed.

    If a change is made to two Alchemy recipes, for example, you now download a 40kb file which, when expanded, overwrites 10 or fewer files instead of a 1MB file which expands to overwrite many more files. You only have to download the profession AddOns once. Not every time one of them is updated or ARL core is updated. It's a one-time cost.

    Dear authors, how about giving us a single archive with all the modules instead of forcing us to download 12 separated addons? What is the point now that you have added the on demand loading? Also you should consider adding a module detection so the addon will know what is present when loaded and not try to load the missing ones for the people that tend to delete the ones they don't use.

    I support jasriel's request for filtering options based on profession specialization, tough not only for engineering.

    @Carnacki: Go Nice math Carnacki, UNFORTUNATELY it have nothing to do with the real life of a drive ... BTW why do you think every SSD maker is offering special software to disable OS features in order to minimize the writes it makes? Thats is equivalent to telling me that a HDD working 24/7 will live as long with it's power options set to OFF as one with them set to ON if they have the same R/W load (disregarding the fact that 2/3 of the time the drive is not being used) ...

    P.S. In general I'm against all the useless operations - for example overwriting a file just because the author decided he should include a field containing the program's revision number in each file's comment field, removing the previous version and reinstalling the new one instead of just downloading and updating the files that have changed since, not optimizing the code just because the modern systems "can handle it" or using XX GB's of space for useless features just because the price per GB is dirt cheap and the programmers can't be bothered to waste >1h to add detection and the option not to install them.

    I think Ackis is one of the best addon-ons out there, however I would like to suggest something to help engineers using it. There are 3 parts to engineering which make it hard to locate recipes you can use, there is regular engineering, goblin engineering, and gnomish engineering. Being that I am a goblin engineer, I am sitting there trying to find patterns I can use but I come across so many gnomish ones, and in a lot of cases have to make long trips to a location to get there and find out I cannot use the pattern. So my point to al of this is, could you add something (a filter of some kind) to allow filtering of the gnomish versus the goblin engineering?

    @Nelegalno2: SSD is much less of a problem than most people thing. And the problem you're talking about is unlikely to affect us in the realistic lifespan of an SSD.

    Updating from v2.5.9 to v2.5.9-1-ga12625e would mean overwriting 42 files (3,14MB) [the ones marked by the authors as changed/updated], but it actually has only 3 files (347KB) with code updates. For more info: http://www.wowace.com/addons/arl/tickets/1596-annoyance-feature-dangerous-for-the-live-of-ssd-flash/

    P.S. This is very bad for the life of SSD disks when the game is installed on them.

    Questing in Desolace it seems the Vendor-Tron 1000 has been removed from the game but the recipes still show as being available from it in ARL.

    Also i cant find any other source for Recipe: Lean Venison so i think this needs to be flagged as retired.

Are you aware of the addon called Collectinator?
