Description
Item Tracker is a Wallet style display of tracked item quantities for your current character as well as all alts, vault and shared storage. You can create multiple tracking windows for tracking various types of items. Each item entry displays your current character quantity on the left, a mini version of the item icon in the center and the total quantity of all characters on the right. You can choose to hide the current quantity or the total quantity columns.

You can also decide to hide the entry until the quantity reaches a specific threshold. Four statuses are defined, Critical, Low, Normal and High. If the quantity is higher than the High threshold then the status is High. If the quantity is below the Critical or Low thresholds then the status is Critical or Low respectively. Otherwise the status is Normal. Users can set default threshold/visibility rules as well as overiding the threshold/visibility rules per item.

The Low/Critical statuses are particularly useful for reminding yourself when potions or travelling rations get low. The High status is useful when gather materials - you will only see the entry appear when it reaches the High quantity setting.

Installation:
To install, unzip the archive into your "Plugins" folder.

Usage:
Use the "/itemtracker setup" chat command to open the Setup window. Enter the name and initial position for your first tracking group and click "Save Group". Once the group is created, the additional fields become visible allowing you to add items to the group. To add an item, drag the icon to the icon box in the setup window, enter the display criteria (or leave as default) and click Save Item. A tracking entry will display on your screen.

You can move tracking windows by changing the Top and Left in the Setup window or you can simply use the Ctrl+\ UI feature to drag them to new locations. The tracking windows will automatically adjust their size to account for larger quantities with the Icons always lined up, so if the current character quantity of an item needs more room, the quantity column automatically expands. The same is true for the totals column. In the Setup window, you can choose to hide either the current quantity or the total quantity columns if desired (some types of tracking are only relevant for the current character while others may only be relevant for the total).

You can hover the mouse over the Total quantity column of an entry to see a popup display with detailed breakdown of each character, vault and shared storage quantity. You can hover the mouse over the Icon to see the default tooltip for that item.

A quick way to add an item to an existing group is to drag the item to the tracking window. This will automatically open the Setup window for the selected group and prepare an item entry for the new item with default values - all you have to do is click Save Item.

Version History

Ver 1.02a
Fixed a conflict bug that could leave items in a private group if a common group was loaded with the same item and potentially corrupt the group definitions. This would only occur if the private group was created in ver 1.01 and a common group was subsequently created on another character.

Ver 1.02
Added "Common" tracking groups. If you flag a group as "Common" it will be available on all characters. This should make setting up tracking on multiple alts considerably easier.
Caution, if you ever uncheck the "Common" option on a common group, that group will convert to only displaying for the currently loaded character.
Added a "Visible for this character" checkbox for "Common" groups to show/hide common groups per character.
NOTE: Items can only exist in one tracking group per character so if a group is set to "common" and loaded on a character that already has an item from the common group also in a private group, that item will be removed from the private group. This prevents conflicts when updating displayed quantities.

Ver 1.01
Disabled tracking of unique items since the item ID is not static
Fixed initialization error for items which no longer exist or can no longer be tracked
Added German translations provided by Amethadan

- Option to see the group name of a group item in UI (just at top of the list).

- Option to see the second number (the number in the right of the icon) in totals (sum of all characters as it is now) or just without the items of your active PJ (only the sum of all your others PC)

- Option to add a short note on each item, with the option to make it visible or not just at right of the totals (or at right of the item icon if you don't have activated the totals.

- [Creep specific] Option to load a predefined lists of ettens items (creep) organized with deliver camp (Grams, Lug, Tol, TR, Isen, Groth, OC) with the quantities needed for each item on each camp. I can give you the list and quantities if you like.

Just ideas, some can be cool and others not much, but I like your plugins and I would like to add my sand grain to help.
Thanks for the feedback.

I'm not sure what is happening with Grimwood-kindling. That'll require some debugging but thanks for reporting it.

I'm not currently planning on any major changes to ItemTracker but I will keep your suggestions in mind when I find time to work on it (there are a number of other projects already planned).

Sorry for the update confusion

Sorry for the update confusion folks. After uploading version 1.02 I found a fairly critical bug so I had to remove 1.02. I have fixed the bug and once I am done testing I will upload 1.02a. Since 1.02 was removed before it passed the upload scans this should not affect anyone other than the hosts of lotrointerface.com to whom I appologize.

EDIT:
1.02a is now available and should be behaving properly.

The only new feature in 1.02 is the ability to set item tracking groups to be shared among all of your characters so that you don't have to set them up multiple times for alts if they are for items that many of your alts will want to track. If you do not wish to see a particular shared group on a specific alt, you can hide that shared group on that alt.

There is a significant bug in the initialization that occurs for unique item stacks. That is, items that do not have a "generic" item ID component. These items are usually rare items like Riddermark-bound Lootboxes and non-bound Sturdy Steel Keys (ironically, the bound Sturdy Steel Keys are generic). The symptom that occurs with this is an endless stream of error messages in the chat window and dreadfully slow response from the client. It this happens, you can remove the ItemTrackerData.plugindata file in the "..\PluginData\accountname\servername\charactername" folder.

I will have an update with a temporary fix for this published in the next day or two. After the update, the plugin will not allow tracking of unique items until I am able to create a more permanent workaround. Note, the update will fix the initialization problem so if you have encountered this, you can simply discontinue using the plugin until the update is published and you won't have to remove the data file.

There are a number of keybindings that will normally never do anything on a user client since they are used internally by Turbine in their debug versions of the client. Since the keybindings exist and they trigger an action code which Lua can capture I use them to make activating Lua code easier. Most people don't even know these actions exist so it's usually safe, but I accidentally used the ToggleDebugConsole action which is bound to "Ctrl+`" by default figuring it is unlikely to be hit by accident but I can see how it could be hit instead of Ctrl+1 which is a common keybinding for quickslots. I will be removing the ToggleDebugConsole action and only keeping the chat command in the next version to prevent this.

Thanks for the translations. They will be included in the next update (no time frame for that yet). FWIW, the credit on the patch page is incorrect, the plugin is by Garan, not Galuhad

Thanks for the feedback.

I plan on allowing users to simpy drag entries up or down in the group lists (probably requiring the user to hold Ctrl while dragging) but there are a few other issues that have to be resolved first so it won't happen right away. But it is definately already on the todo list.

Thanks for the feedback.

The itemAdded and updateQuantity messages are debugging messages that should not be showing by default since Settings.debug is false by default. Entering the chat command, "/itemtracker debug off" will turn them back off but I will have to look into how they got turned on.

The "/Custom Tips toggle" help message is a simple copy/paste bug. The message should be "/ItemTracker toggle" since Custom Tips is a different plugin That'll be fixed in the next release.
EDIT after thinking about it, the "toggle" option shouldn't even be there at all and will simply be removed in the next release.
