LSW First Aid w/ Standard Interface

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

Optionally Requires:

  • Informant (for vendor availability)

LibPeriodicTable (for vendor availability)

Trade Skill Interfaces Supported:

  • GnomeWorks
  • AdvancedTradeSkillWindow
  • Skillet
  • Blizzard's Standard UI
  • Doublewide Tradeskills
  • Tradeskill HD

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.

A note regarding vendor availability:

LSW utilizes supplied item databases to determine when an item is readily available from a vendor. Occasionally this may not be accurate, usually because the item is a trade in for another item and not buyable with gold. I have provided a simple way to over-ride the vendor database:

/script LSWConfig.vendorOverride[item#] = (true/false/nil)

The item# is the item ID for the specific item. It is a single number. For example, 2589 is Linen Cloth.
Setting the value to "true" means the item is available at the vendor.
Setting the value to "false" means the item is not available at the vendor.
Setting the value to "nil" means to use the provided databse.

There is now also a right-click option to override the vendor availability and also to hand enter specific prices for items.

A note about frame/auction support:

LSW utilizes a plug in scheme to handle support to handle pricing and frame support. I am unlikely to add additional plugins directly into LSW. The goal of the plugin system is to provide basic templates that other addon authors could employ to provide LSW support on their end while at the same time providing functionality for a base set of common mods. Addon authors are free to contact me regarding the plugin system if issues arise or the system doens't make sense.

    there's a lilsparky skillet thread in the forum here at wowace that might be a better place to discuss this... other people have complained of a similar problem, but i haven't found the issue.

    I'm using your custom clone branch. It keeps happening every time. I would queue up about 50 glyphs, then make them all, then check the AH for more stuff to make, then I can't search anymore because it doesn't work.

    Thanks for the help btw.

    Hey, I'm using LSW workshop with Skillet and everything works perfectly fine except for one thing. Not sure where to put it, but Skillet search seems to stop working randomly. It works when I reloadUI and then when I start making stuff it randomly stops.

    Edit: I meant it stops after I'm done making stuff, close the window, go off and do other stuff, then when I try to search again, it's blank and nothing comes up.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for the amazing contributions :)

    then i suspect it didn't install properly. the atsw_skilllisting variable is no longer being used. maybe your extract went to the wrong directory? (like next to addons, or inside the LSW folder)

    That change to atsw took care of it. Just FYI, I did download the version r66 from here prior to the error I posted.

  • Avatar of lilsparky lilsparky May 19, 2009 at 03:52 UTC - 0 likes

    yes. try the alpha (download it from here)


    edit atsw.lua, go to line 40 and remove the "local" from "local atsw_skilllisting = {}"
