Another suggestion is to add the possibility of the window loading hidden... because the bags bug make it necessary to reload plugins pretty often, the compendium window also needs to be closed manually each time.

Can be done with a parameter command (/compendium defaulthide), like in Tobii bag addon, but in my opinion a settings window (where future settings will be added) would be best.
Great advice. Will attempt to make it save window open/close state between reloads. Thanks again!

The new release of Compendium grew the disk requirements to hold all the data for the Item Compendium. I have no other tests other than my own experience. Even with size increase I saw no performance hit other than a second or so at plugin load time.

Please please please provide feedback if you experience issues with the addition of the new dataset. The plan is to continue with adding more Compendium components (datasets) in the future as new tabs in the UI. I will likely make it so they can be turned off or seperated out, but in mean time enjoy!

3) In etenmors, filter the quests acording to player faction, because monster players cannot do free people quests, and free people can't do monster quests. (Same way that alliance and horde can't do quests from opposite faction in wow)

Just tested it, and a few things come to mind...

1) The readme.txt file seems to be missing... had to peek at the code to see how to open the main window.

2) It could use better starting way than /comp. A button like in Lotropad would be great.

3) In etenmors, filter the quests acording to player faction, because monster players cannot do free people quests, and free people can't do monster quests. (Same way that alliance and horde can't do quests from opposite faction in wow)

4) Took me a bit to realise what "arc" means... perhaps rename to "quest chain" ? But then, it's just my personal opinion/preference

5) Would be great if you could add coordonates of the NPC that gives each quest.

Again, cheers for a great initiative

Thanks for the support and feedback Nimryeth

I recently made modifications to the zone list in 1.0.1-beta. I agree with addending ", The" to the end of the area. One area in the list strikes me as confusing w/o this..

"Hills (Shire)"

Currently most of my dev time is focused on the item database component of Compendium. There is just so much data to go through O_o. I also have to figure out a way to shrink it all to reasonable size for an addon.

First, grats for a wonderful addon that goes into my fav list.

I think it would be better to put it at the end. Like "The Lone Lands" becomes "Lone Lands The".
This way the area is easily found but at the same time seeing that "the" is there, makes you more certain you found the correct area (if "the" is missing some people might stumble on the difference and think they got the wrong area).

Not really... it's just like wow.
Example: In Elwyn area we have Goldshire area, Jasporlode Mines, etc (yeah i know i spelled the mines wrong)

So just as wow addons do no filter quests per sub-zone, i think this one should do the same.

Also, if you happen to play on Eldar server, fell free to mail me

Thanks for taking the time to try the plugin and submitting problems you are having.

The reason the quest "My Deputy" does not appear is because the page was removed on Lorebook's website.

http://lorebook.lotro.com/wiki/Quest:My_Deputy

I soon hope to have a way for players to submit new information for missing quests or incorrect data, that will get incorporated into Compendium.

On another note, I am a Wow player, that has only just started in Lotro. I'm lvl 13 at the moment, so the specifics of Lotro's zones & areas is still somewhat nebulous. You might try checking "The Lone-Land" in the zone drop-down. I can try to remove the "The " infront of zone names in drop-down.

Great feedback!
Well, I'm not a experienced player of the LoTRO but I think you can use the name that appear in the minimap. It's what I use to say my location. Older players can give a better view.

I'm not sure if will help, but hunters have a skill that track mobs around, with name and locations and can put a mark in minimap. Maybe if you can take a look at this skill can give to you a better idea.

Other thing taht maybe can help you is a site that I use to look for a quest mob or location: http://lotro.mmodb.com/quests/

Keep working in this addon, please! I don't like to do alt + tab many time.

Hey!

Great addon, congratulations! Made me remember a similar WoW addon.

Last night I tried using the addon to search for a quest in Lone Land and I got confused cuz I can't find Lone Land in the location field. I tried just type the name of the quest ("My Deputy" if I remember) and can't find too. Maybe I did something wrong or this quest is not listed yet. Have any way of knowing about it or tell me what mistake I made?

Thank you anyway.
