Welcome to Crafts

The purpose of this AddOn is to offer to its users an easy way to know the crafts that the members of the guild can do. It is aimed to answer to at least these questions:

  • Who can make this item?
  • What are the needed reagents for this craft?
  • Is an offline player able to make the item I want?

When using Crafts, you auto-magically share all your professions to other players running the AddOn, and they do as well. You can then easily search within all this data and find your needs in a few seconds.

    A correction or 2, GuildCraft does auto purge bad data. Synch is locale independent and doesn't require you to change locales to see trade-skills from others. Also all the tradeskill cache that is used is LoD so if you don't open the addon up it dosn't take up the game memory.

    Just a reminder to check on TipTac, especially the plugin TipTacItemRef. Having both this and Crafts enabled enables Crafts to steal all tooltips.

    The Crafts who stole christmas!

    Crafts are shared cross-realms. It should be on a per-realm basis. Done

    Let the user choose the location of the tooltip (left, right, upper, lower will do). Done

    Crafts may support tradeskill links in the future, but I cannot guarantee it. I will see if it is a really missed feature or not, but technically it is possible to add that to the AddOn.

    You indeed search all tradeskills at once, but you may search in one tradeskill in particular by just typing its name ("enchanting", "tailoring", ...). Search is immediate, very quick, and incremental.

    Crafts do not support searching in the tooltips yet, since it is a feature that is very memory and time consuming.

    Syncing is not limited during combat, since it would not change a lot of things, but I'm noting this request for incoming developments. Indeed, even if *you* do not sync anything during combat, you still receive every synchronization message from other AddOns. But there may be a solution by unregistering from the AddOn channel in order not to sync and not to receive messages as well. I will however look into this only if I get some serious reports on performance issues with Crafts while raiding.

    Thanks for the lists!
    I don't play WoW at the moment (so I can't try your Addon), I hope you don't mind some further questions ;)

    I assume with "Not supporting tradeskill links." you mean the ability to import data by just clicking on a tradeskill link from another player? If yes, that's sad, because that's an important feature of Guild Craft for me (most of my guildmates don't want to install an Addon just because I want to search their tradeskills).

    How does you searching/filtering work? Looking at the screenshots, I can't see a filter box, so I assume you search all tradeskills at once?
    Do you also support searching in the tooltips like Guild Craft does?

    Have you limited the hourly sync to not happen during combat? Is it possible to force a sync or to change the interval?

    After a quick chat with the author of Guild Craft (thanks OrionShock!):

    Pros:

    • No need to reload anything after a synchronization with another player.
    • No load time at login.

    Cons:

    • Not supporting tradeskill links.

    Notes: A few functionalities are still in development, such as alts synchronization ignore, ...
