1.32 Changes:
  • More huge performance improvements! Thanks again to Shadowfen who did all the work here. (Pre-compile rules as they are changed)
  • Replaced Set Tracker support function GetSetTrackerState() with IsTracked(). If you used the old function, you will need to update your rule (sorry). This was done to bring the usage inline with the way the other similar functions work. Usage, e.g.: IsTracked("Sell/Decon", "Collecting")

1.31 Changes:
  • Big performance increase (2x or better for me), thank you to Shadowfen for the code change suggestion!
  • Updated libraries

1.30 Changes:
  • Added French translation. Big thanks to Hasgaad!

1.29 Changes:
  • HOTFIX - resolve errors at merchant due to Wolfhunter API changes.

1.28 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Wolfhunter.

1.27 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Summerset.
  • Added support for jewelry crafting ingredients. Note: you will need to either create a new rule yourself, or reset AutoCategory to default settings to grab the new default rule.
    • To create your own rule, use
      Lua Code:
      1. filtertype("jewelrycrafting")
    • To reset to default settings: In the Auto Category add-on menu, use the Defaults button. Then use the /reloadui command. Important: this will remove any custom rules/settings you have defined.
  • New API function "IsMarkedIS()" - use to test whether an item is marked with Item Saver. Note that FCO ItemSaver users should continue to use "IsMarked()"

1.26 Changes:
  • New API function "islocked()" - use to test whether an item has been locked.

1.24 Changes:
  • Resolve circular dependency issue with DoItAll (requires matching update to DoItAll).


1.23 Changes:
  • Added Set Tracker support! Use "getsettrackerstate()" to retrieve the name of the Set Tracker category, if an item is tracked.
  • Added charlevel() and charcp() to pull current character level and CP. Can be used to compare item level to your character level with a custom rule. (Thanks to VulcanTourist)

1.22 Changes:
  • You can now define separate settings for your home storage chests (they will take their initial settings from your bank settings, but can be customized at will).

1.21 Changes:
  • Added support for home storage chests (big thanks to raj72616a). Currently, they will use the settings selected for your bank (no custom settings for home chests yet).
  • Bumped API version for Dragon Bones.
  • New maintainer (crafty35a).


1.19 Changes:
  • Fixed Localization.
  • New Feature: Collapsed/Expanded status can be saved now. You can turn it on in the general setting menu.

1.18 Changes:
  • Fixed Bug: IGV will show the last category correctly.
  • Fixed Bug: Items Count can be turned off permanently.
  • Fixed Bug: Quest Panel will not complain about lua error.

1.17 Changes:
  • Removed debug logs in destruct/improvement panel

1.16 Changes:
  • New Feature: Collapsible Category. You can now click the header to fold all items inside. Get an overall view of your inventory! Context Menu is available, you can collapse/expand all headers with one click.
  • New Feature: Hide-able Category. You can hide some categories to focus on the items you need to deal with. Also you can hide the items that are not matched in the 'Other' category. Can be set in bag setting menu.
  • New Feature: Items Count. You can get a total number about how many items inside the category. This can be turned off in the general setting menu.
  • Account Wide setting changed: You can switch account wide/character wide for each of your characters. (* Need to select again if you use character setting before, don't affect the bag settings)
  • Fixed bug: Removed duplicated rules in bag setting.
  • Fixed bug: German set names should be able to be matched now.
  • Changed api:keepresearch()
    After a lot of tests, the api is not working fine. So I decided to make the api work more simple: It will match all the items can be researched. If you want better result, please use it with other api together. This is a basic idea to filter the item that is not part of a set and can be researched:
    Lua Code:
    1. keepresearch() and not isset()
  • New api:isset() api:ismonsterset()

1.15 Changes:
  • New feature: Category header's height is customizable!
  • New feature: You can change the name of ungrouped Category.
  • New feature: Added a message in chat when toggling the add-on's function, and a switch for it to turn on/off.

  • Fixed bug: Removed tag should not to be restored after relog.
  • New Add-ons Integrated!
    Do It All: You can now use it with AC together.
    Alpha Gear: Added a new api:alphagear
    Master Merchant: Added a new api:getpricemm
    Tamriel Trade Centre: Added a new api:getpricettc
  • New api:isinbank

  • Fixed integration for Inventory Grid View(3.2).

  • Added API:
    Code:

  • Added API:
    Code:
    quality

  • Fixed Bug: Import from bag setting will incorrectly make settings be linked together.

You just can't get your head out of the lone wolf's ass, can you? You sarcastically proposed exactly the opposite of the collaborative effort I described. This lone-wolf syndrome is also how and why so many mods get relegated to the Discontinued bin. Have fun with perpetuating that stupidity. You and others don't seem to know how to do anything else, apparently.

I'm honestly not sure what you are proposing. You want a "collaborative" effort but when a seasoned dev gives you positive feedback and suggests you visit the sites where most of the ESO devs hang out and work on the idea with them, you bite back snarling about lone wolf syndrome?

It sounds to me you weren't so much suggesting a collaboration as you were just having a pseudo-intellectual winge at other people for not having done the work for you. Might I suggest (when you have nothing to contribute) either keeping your mouth shut, or otherwise if you are truthfully just looking for a clever way to demand others do something you want for you, perhaps adopt a more enlightened tact?

I find that when one wants something from others, asking nicely can go a long way. It helps to train yourself to think of others as actual human beings no more or less valuable and certainly no less real than yourself. Even if empathy doesn't come naturally, you can train yourself to overcome that limitation through a simple benefit and loss analysis:

"When I treat others like they owe me something, are beneath me, or otherwise aren't really people but just objects that exist to serve me, I tend not to get what I want. When I treat people with respect (again you will have to practice in order to build up empirical evidence for this) I am more likely to inspire them to devote time and effort from their personal life, often for no financial gain whatsoever, to help me to achieve it."

I think this was covered somewhere in "How to Win Friends and Influence People."

Well said.

Anyways, home storage is now fully supported in Auto Category. v1.22 uploaded last night now allows custom settings for your home storage chests.

What's needed is a mod to formalize how virtual game storage is handled in all mods: LibStorage. The community should recognize a common shared problem and collaborate on a shared solution, not everyone going off in the corner to invent their own solutions.

EDIT: Nevermind what I originally said here. I am now maintaining Auto Category, and the home storage patch is integrated here in the original add-on.

That is not currently possible, nor will it likely ever be, given that the author now appears to be AWOL.

Up!

I have just downloaded Auto Category and I love it!

I have immediately noticed the lack of integration for Set Tracker.

To my understanding, the creator of this addon seems to have abandoned it, hasn't he?

I e-mailed him March 6th about a completely separate issue (category filter customization) and he still hasn't responded. A private message has also gone unanswered. I am not hopeful.

It's sad that so many people author game mods with so little consideration for how those mods might continue to be viable once they lose personal interest in them. It's fortunate luck that this one continues to work at all even within its original bounds. I would certainly also like to see it work with the new storage chests, but I think it's likely that we'll have to mod the mod ourselves. I hadn't yet worked up the gumption to look at the code and see if what was required is within my very limited skill set, so if someone else already knows what is required I'd like to hear the process.

Regarding what I did mail him about: the "Low Level" gear filter wasn't useful to me, because I've just started playing the game in February and all I had were characters below level 50, and the default filter for it only considers Champion Points. I modified the filter to also test "level() < n", but n was hard-coded and so meant that I had to modify the filter manually every time my character increased in level... and it became effectively useless once I had other characters at different levels (since the mod is account-wide). I asked him if there was an API call to reference the character level and make the test dynamic. Does anyone here know if there's a way to fix the shortcoming in this "Low Level" category?

Addendum: I just saw the patch submitted by raj72616a, but there's a problem: even though his published page for the patch states that it's based off the latest version 1.19 of AutoCategory, it's not: internally in the AutoCategory.txt file it reveals that he modified the previous version, 1.18, and further evidence exists in the date-time stamps of some of the files; 1.19 has some files dated 2017-10-29, while none of the unmodified files in the patch do, all are dated 2017-10-28. Inspecting the files in WinMerge further reveals missing code in the patch that exists in the original 1.19 files. Also, the "patch" isn't a patch at all: it's a full replacement containing all the other original files.

The patch-that-ain't-a-patch was carelessly derived from an obsolete version that is missing useful features, like saving the category collapse status. Do not use the "patch" until it's been correctly derived from the most recent version 1.19 of AutoCategory. The version number of the "patch" also needs to be incremented in some fashion in AutoCategory.txt and AutoCategory_Global.lua, so that it doesn't play havoc with Minion or whatever system people use to keep mods updated.

Help with 'ismarked'

I am trying to get all items I tag as 'sell' grouped together. This option does not seem to work for all items. I presently have a white staff and white steel gauntlets (both showing as 'ornate') in the category "Sell", but a white belt and a blue necklace that will not go into this 'Sell' group. The belt lists under 'Low Level' and the neck under 'BOE'. I have tried editing each of the relevant categories with "and not ismatched("sell") ". The two items then worked their way down through 'Armor' and 'Neck', (which I diligently edited as above), finished up under a heading called 'Other' which is not even listed in the Bag Settings list of categories, (this 'other' category also shows my disguises).

Can anyone help me please?

Edit: Believe I have solved it - Under category General Items > Selling. I added "or ismarked("sell"). [Fingers-crossed]
