Description
Sort Pack
Note: The following are required for the plugin to function;
Turbines standard code must be installed. For the plugin to work you also need DeusDictums wonderful DragBar!
What does this plugin do?
Video on youtube to help explain this...

Items within Lotro are all assigned a category. SortPack allows you to put these categories into groups, and then either have the backpack sort itself into order, or display a custom backpack.

So, Items are in Categories, Categories are in Groups and these are shown in your backpack.

There are now two options. The plugin can be used to sort the bag, or to open a custom backpack with the items sorted into categories. Either, or both, ideas can be used. It is not a both or nothing choice!
How to load the plugin
Either use a plugin manager or /plugins load sortpack.
SortPack Button


By default the plugin comes with a resizeable button. To change the size of the button unlock the ui and click and drag inside it. To chose what happens when the button is left clicked just right click it.

Sorting

The first option, from the button or /sort, sorts the default backpack in order. Nice and simple. Takes some time to sort the pack, with a maximum of around 15s.
SortBag


A new module allows the default back pack to be supplemented or replaced by a custom backpack. In this backpack the items are shown in groups. Drag/drop etc work as normal. If you notice disappearing items etc. just click the sortpack button to open the pack and the items will re-appear. This is due to a Turbine bug.

The icon at the top left of the pack gives you the option of changing the group label font, overriding the default backpack and opening the sort group panel.

Clicking on a group label collapses that group. Click again to expand it.

If you hover over the right hand side of the pack a control appears that allows the pack to be resized, but if you hold alt it is the label that gets resized instead.

Note: If the default backpack is replaced and you use the menu/key presses to open your bags you may notice that items "disappear". Click the sortpack button to reload the bag. The missing items will suddenly reappear. This is a turbine bug, not mine.
SortPack options.


Allows you to create your own groups or move item categories between groups.
With the sort option window open you can click and drag groups to move them in the sort order in the left pane. The box at the bottom is for creating your own groups. Type the name of your group in the box and click the icon to the right.
A "-" icon shows that a group is empty and can be deleted.
After clicking on a group the right pane shows the item categories in that group. Drag them within the right pane to re-order them in that group, or drag them to the left pane to move them to another group.
User Defined Categories.
Some of the Turbine Categories are not logical, for example all craft materials are just "Resources" with no sub-division of ores, hides etc. A new feature of SortPack is the ability to create custom user categories, and to move items into the different categories. To access this feature use either /SortCat or select "Create/Edit custom Categories" from the Button.
This will open a window that shows you all the ingame categories on the left. If you scroll to the bottom you can add your own category. Left clicking on a category will show on the right hand pane which items the user has placed in that category - it does not keep track of which items Turbine has placed in their categories! To add an item to a category just drag it into this right hand pane and voila! it is added. NOTE: The plugin does this by moving the item into the last slot of your backpack. On very rare occaisions you may have to drag the item twice for the option to fire.
Clicking the "-" icon in either pane will remove that item from the category (right hand pane) or delete the category (left hand pane) NOTE: Only user defined categories can be deleted!

These custom categories can then be placed in groups using the Sort Option Window.
SortPack Counter.
The counter is a small display that shows how many slots are used/left in the backpack.
To show/hide it either use the SortPack button or the slash command /SortCounter.
UI Locked; The display is mouse invisible when the UI is locked
UI Unlocked;
Left clicking and dragging inside the counter will resize the display.
Right Clicking switches between slots used/remaining.
If the background turns red it shows the SortPack may have got out of sync and a reload is required (click the sortpack button). In this way it can remind you when to use the button, and when the normal inventory buttons are fine. I have never seen this module give a false positive.
To my German and French friends!

Compatible with "Jackdaw Save Patch" for DE and FR support (otherwise it won't save properly)

German Translation

Hey guys,
I'm using this addon for years and keep updating my custom categories.
I'm using the German client so german subgroups are a nice feature I've added to my SortPack.
I also translated the default category "empty slots" as well as the "x free slots" and the "search"-box.
Whoever wants the German translation please pm me and I'll give the translations to you

Cheers Max

Edit: I've found a workaround to overwrite the default bag!
1. Open the SortPack
2. Click the Options Button in the TopRight-Corner
3. Click "Override Default Bags"
Until here this shouldn't be new. The problem on my client was, when pressing "I" the default bag opened as well. Soooo:
4. Open your LOTRO-settings and go to the keyboard settings.
5. Set "Bag 1" to "I" overwriting the default hotkey for "I".
So if you only open up one bag instead of the whole Inventory only SortPack will show up and leave the default bag closed.

Have Fun

Edit 2:
I've changed the Bag.lua to include an option into the bag so you are able to hide or show the SortPack Button. Here's the file:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/pzdnu2z6v2p0x8h/Bag.lua
For all the Germans here's the German language file:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/7uzb9pugbiqga31/SortPackData.plugindata
You just have to put it into your:
Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\<yourusername>\<yourserver>\AllC haracters folder overwriting the old one

YES!!!!!

Try setting "I" to opening only bag 1 instead of the all bag function, it should open the SortBag window.

I am having issues trying to run HugeBag and using SortBag for sorting, namely:
...ings Online\Plugins\JackdawPlugins\SortPack\Sort.lua:37 : attempt to index global 'Timer' (a nil value)

EDIT: Reloading character fixed the issue.



THANKS, that worked!

Update please

I have used this plugin for so long, but thanks to Turbine and their need to "update" things, I am having problems. Most significantly, when I hit "I" for inventory, the sortpack no longer overrides the default bags.

Please fix. You rock. Thanks.

Oh my gosh, I hadn't seen these messages... I have been gone for a while in my defence.

Anyway - A player has messaged me and it looks like a few item categories have not been added by Turbine. I am working on a update and should be able to release this weekend.

EDIT: I have bookmarked this page and will attempt to work through all the requests as soon as I can. Again - sorry!

Autoload?

I set the loading screen to autoload this plugin, but it doesn't load automatically. I have to manually load it each time I log in. Any suggestions?

Otherwise, great plugin.

Learning to use this and it looks like a good idea. I like using my default bags, 1-6 to keep items grouped. Does SortPack allow me to assign items to specific bags? One issue i see is that SortPack starts at Bag 1 and sorts from there through Bag 6, i.e. leaving empty slots in Bag 6 then Bag 5 etc. Now when you fight and loot, all loot by default goes into Bag 1 then Bag 2 etc. I have set up and sorted my bags so that all my gear is stacked in Bag 6 , Bag 5 etc leaving Bag 1, 2, and 3 open for loot. this is so that loot doesn't fill empty slots in my 'gear' bags. I hope you follow me lol.

in Asheron's Call there was a plugin called SortIt! written by Gouru. It allowed you to do several things, one of which was assigning which bag a certain category of item would go into when you looted it. It also allowed you to 'lock' items to certain bags and even certain slots, so that when unequipped, that item would always go to the same place. very handy for having a bag of 'weapons', one of 'armour', one of 'potions', etc.

Thanks and Suggestions

First off, this is one of the best plug-ins. Great work!

I have a couple of improvement possibilities.

1. I'd like the ability to move items in the bag to an empty section temporarily and not have to re-categorize them for a moment. Example: I'm holding some items for someone temporarily or I am getting ready for a big trade with someone. I don't want the items mixed in with my items, which can cause confusion when trying to make the trade simple and complete. I am definitely not a programmer, so I don't know if I have described that adequately.

2. I'd like the ability to return an item to its default Turbine category. If I wanted to dissolve a category that I created, I'd have lot of customized items that would have no home. Although, it is obvious that I didn't like the default category to begin with, it would make things simple if a custom category gets deleted that all the items in that category would return to there defaults.

Again, great plug-in. Thank you many times over.

Thanks so much for this great work!

I want my open SortBag to be much bigger on screen, much higher, with larger icons for the items.

On your YouTube video, the open SortBag takes up a large part of the center of the screen.

For me, I cannot get it that big.

When I hover over the right side of the Bag, I get the blue-bar that allows me to resize, but only in one direction at a time. Only horizontal or vertical, but not in both directions. So I cannot get the total bag size bigger.

Is there some way to make the actual ITEMS in the bag appear larger?

Problems and Solutions

I had Problems with Sortpack on German Client and Windows. In the saved Data the . apeared as , and this caused to break the Addon. Aplying the Vindar Patch doesn't worked for me too. This Crashed the Addon too.

Solution: i changed many of the , to . in the SortPackData.plugindata and set the State of the File to Not Overwritable. This worked for me

Multi-Boxer who Sorts A Lot

Oh I CANNOT express how much this plugin helps me! Thank You, Thank You! I am a bit of a LOTRO pack-rat, and a Multi-boxer to boot. Since the Auto-Loot feature launched in RoR I have had major loot management problems and having it sort my alts so I can do trades makes the pain way less.

Curious if the LUA allows this feature though. Context: I am a Multi-Boxer and I run 6 Characters (yes that is a Full Fellowship) across 4 computers and while it is a bit tricky it is way fun. So I do understand that I am a unique LOTRO Beast. Before RoR I could manage Loot by, while Questing, making certain my Leader Toon looted 95% of the mobs (this made sure that loot stacked mostly in one place) and then later standing the Group at a Vault Keeper and doing 6 small trades to manage errant loot on my 5 Alts and to stuff things in my Vault. Now each toon gets a loot chance and there is more loot total. I now have Loot coming out of every port in my body, and instead of Loot managed in 10-15 mins, I now easily spend 40-60 minutes on 15-20 trades and moving loot into storage. If I did not have Sort Pack I would be spending even MORE time doing this, so Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for this PlugIn!

Question: Does the LUA allow for items to be put into a trade screen? Like could a plugin feature be created that allows a loot list to be created to automatically be grabbed from the pack and put into a trade? Or maybe a feature that drags items from inventory bags and places them into storage?

If nothing else I again thank you for this plugin and I use it daily and love it!
