Tradeskill Window

MrTrader is a Tradeskill window replacement, with additional features to streamline how you interact with others for your tradeskills, especially if you have alts. Browse all your tradeskills from any character on the same server, link them just as easily to others, and even allow others to ask for a tradeskill link without having to do anything on your part.

Core Features:

  • Tradeskill Window Replacement
    • Difficulty Filtering
    • Custom Collections
    • Context Menus
    • Auction House-style Filter Browsing
  • Auto-Responses in chat to link requests using '!full' or '!link'.
    • Supports Guild, Raid, and Whispers.
    • Fully configurable, with privacy-friendly defaults.
  • Server-Wide Tradeskill Access (requires a LibDataBroker display)
    • One-menu access to your tradeskills.
    • Link any tradeskill you know, or your alts know.
    • Browse any tradeskill you know, or your alts know.
    • Browse your guild's tradeskills without having to dig through the guild roster window.

LibDataBroker displays like Fortress or TitanPanel are required for the Tradeskill Access menu feature. I personally like TitanPanel, but any of them will work.

Note: I have been on break from WoW, and would be happy to pass the reins onto someone who is interested in running with the project. I can catch them up to speed on where things were going and share some prototypes I was playing with before I went on break. Contact me if interested.

    I'm aware of the problem with engineering.

    I've got a ticket open to track the work to manage which plugins are displayed in the list (which will let you hide the tools in the display). I've also got a couple ideas on how to make the list a bit shorter by only displaying what is needed, and shortening up the list to make it fit so you will get something like:

    "Forge, Foo, Bar, 2 more..." rather than spewing junk all over the screen.

    Think you could put an option in to hide the needed tools? I am an engineer and the amount of tools needed is so great it grows into the icon and makes the mod look cluttered.

    A great tradeskill addon.

    One thing I'm missing though...

    Could you add an option that remembers the search filter and the last selected recipe after closing and reopening MrTrader? It would be enough if these settings are remembered only during a wow session (and not after closing and restarting WoW).

    It's quite annoying when MrTrader gets closed because you opened the guild bank to get some mats and you have to reenter your search query because of that ;)

    Tia, Highend

    There's some weird behavior that is being driven by the client/server rather than addons at this point.

    When you open a window, the data available is fed to the addon (even the official one) and then an Update event is sent to load the actual data. Part of the problem is that I'm trying to merge all update events within 1 second into a single event, and it's causing some lag and making this noticable.

    Search should be unaffected by this once the initial update has taken place.

    4.0.1 has changed quite a bit of the reality behind how tradeskill data is handled by the client, and has introduced bugs that I'm still flushing out. Some of them require a bit more time to fix than others, as includes more design-level decisions of what I should display before the initial update/etc...

    kolenka, having a LOT of problems with 0.6.3, searching not working, when you find the item in the list of items to craft finally and click on it, all the items that were there disappear and a different set appear. No LUA errors so not really sure what's going on.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm still annoyed that it took so long to track that particular issue down.
