Re: Additional rare drop info

Quote:
First let me say that I just discovered this plugin and I ADORE it.

Secondly, I would love if it if you could add additional info to the rare drops--namely, what they drop from, at least for things like farming or prospecting where it is always the same. Certain drops for scholar dyes, for example, come from farming, and it isn't easy to find that information in-game. I was just about to farm for onion skins, but couldn't remember off the top of my head if they came from yellow onions or green onions.

If you would like me to come up with a list for those that I know, let me know.

Keep making plugins--those of yours I've seen so far are great.
is there an online source of this information that you are aware of that I can try to pull where they drop from? If you have a list of course I'd be interested.

Bigger text

Is there a way to make the text even bigger then it is now? I run the game in 2560x1440 and the text is way to small.

I've been looking into added compression algorithm to Compendium, so I can fit more data into the databases for quest, deeds, etc.. Perhaps this will be a way for me to get around having to parse so much data that is in varying formats. I could just have full text articles that are for the quests, and then index only the title, zone, & levels. I realize this would be taking away in some regards, but would make management of it much easier.

The only reason I hadn't done this before is trying to keep size to a minimum.

Thoughts?

Re: A Thank you and a Request

First of all, a HUGE thank you for putting this together! It is what I have been looking for for quite some time now.

Secondly, is there a way for me to modify or update the list? I am going through my completed items and am finding some quests not listed. What is the best way for all to benefit from updates needed?
I eventually need to break down and do another update of this. To do so I will be abandoning the lorebook quest list in favor of lotro-wiki, which at this point is more up to date. The reason the quests are missing is most likely because lorebook has not been updated in some time, and their quest mini-maps (from which I get many of the coordinates) are also broken.

If you can give me examples of the quests I am missing I can use them when the time comes to see if my update is successful.

I kept items farily up to date for this expansion until update 6. Turbine hasn't published new item data yet.

Lorebook article entries have been somewhat broken for deeds and quests, so I haven't done any work there for isengard yet, other than implement requested features that folks have asked for.

I've been focusing on other projects at the moment, but will come back to Compendium eventually.

Hi!

This looks like an awesome plugin! But I want to know how updated it is and if you still update it

A Number of Thoughts

Greetings:
Firstly, I wanted to say that hands-down this is the most useful plugin currently available for anyone organized. I just wanted to drop a few random thoughts here that may or may not have already been mentioned.
  • Could you hook into the chat:received event, check against ChatType 'Quest', and compare it to a dictionary of known quest chats in order to automatically check off some of the quests when completed?

  • Could you add a check for crafting recipes soas to be able to mark off the ones you have learned and know the ones you do not yet have?

  • You might want to make an object-like approach to comments so each comment is an entry, has an ID, and can be modified or deleted, this way it is easier to merge or overwrite program comments without touching user comments; otherwise you could separate program comments into their own section under the description tab or something so the comments text is strictly user free-text.

  • I've noticed that the entries listed when you use the filters are usually not complete. If you're using external data to know which items fall under a filter, then there isn't much that can be done; but if you are doing this by hand, you may consider setting up a ticket-like website where end-users can submit bugs like this so you are aware of them and can work through the tickets.

  • It would be great if you could either add a tab to the in-game window or an external application that would read your database files and allow multi-character comparisons and viewing to see which of your characters have what completed. You may even be able to work with Whiteberry and use his well-designed 'Berry's Completionist Tracker' OpenOffice layout.

Quest maps and NPC coordinates in the map have all been broken as well since release of Isengard expansion. I have tried to contact Turbine regarding these, and for months there has been no action taken. They also have changed the names of quests and deeds slightly with each expansion. Because of these changes it has made my ability to update Compendium data somewhat difficult to say the least. I've focused on other programming endeavours in hope they will correct the said mistakes.

That said there are things I can do to get the data updated, it just requires time, and more effort on my part, which have been at a minimum lately. I want to rework how I collect data, and reduce my reliance on lorebook. lotro-wiki.com has given me permission to use their data. Do get this to that stage, I have to rewrite all the code I use to harvest, and normalize data to accommodate the different sources.
Thanks very much for explaining, I really wish turbine would get their acts together it always feels like everything they do is half baked.

Thanks you so much for this plugin
I have a question tho.How is it working?i mean the core of its utility
You add these items?or you make it check the core data of the client?
I mean i saw a halberd First age lvl55 which shape and lvl i never saw in game
never!I mean it was a texture that was ever used
Compendium refers to real in game items. If it can pull a tooltip for the item, it is pulling it from the game itself. With each game update, they might "remove" items from game, inwhich the tooltip will stop working. This is just a guess, but I think it likely there are many items that they planned to release, and go to far as to add it to game files, but stopped short of providing a way to receive the loot.
