IMPORTANT: The game's built-in AutoLoot must be turned off!
Smarter AutoLoot, or S.A.L., is a completely invisible little assistant that will give you much greater control over your every day looting and pillaging. Turn off the game's AutoLoot, and turn on SAL, set what you want to loot and what you don't, and forget about it. Whenever you loot, SAL will automatically take what you want, and leave the rest behind.
Inspired by AdvancedAutoLooter, Smart AutoLooter works a bit different and focuses solely on managing your looting rather than mailing items and other additional extras. Do one thing and do it well is the motto here!
Disable the stock AutoLoot
Settings->Add-Ons->Smarter AutoLoot and enable the looter.
Setup your filters as desired.
Whenever SAL detects a loot window, it will automatically take the items you said you care about and ignore the ones you don't. By default it will leave the loot window open if it did not take all the items, allowing you to manually grab those if desired. This also means that if SAL somehow gets his logic mixed up, you can still grab the items he should have grabbed, though hopefully this won't happen. Some other AutoLoot plugins loot everything, then destroy the non-matching items but I think this is dangerous and wasteful.
For a full list, see the settings screenshot. In summary:
Loot or Ignore stolen items
Crafting mats can bypass all filters if desired
Soul gems can bypass all filters if desired
Set a minimum quality level of items to loot
Option to always loot ornate and intricate items
Various filters for semi-desirable items like food, recipes, bait, etc
Fixed missing tooltips on some controls (speeling matters!)
Added global flag to allow/disallow looting of stolen items
Updated for Homestead
Added filter for furniture crafting materials
Added an option to enable or disable the ability to destroy un-looted items
Fixed a bug that prevented the weapons filter from working properly.
Completely reworked filter settings UI as well as the backend code to allow far more granularity over your loot filter rules.
Added filters for Poisons, Potions, and Glyphs
[b]NOTE: This version is bugged, and the filters don't work as they should. Please do not use this version. Use 1.6.0+
Updated LibAddonMenu for One Tamriel. Fixed script errors caused by One Tamriel.
Added button to loot window that will close the window and DESTROY any items left in it. Use with caution as this is instant, and can't be undone!

Added ability to show links to looted items in chat window, so you know what was looted.
Removed some debug printing that I had accidently left in the last version
Fixed a variable typo that causes script errors under certain conditions

Mandrakia - Inspired by Mandrakia's original AdvancedAutoLoot, but completely written from scratch
You are hereby granted a free license to do whatever you want with this plugin and its code, so long as you give me credit for the original work. If I should disappear, which isn't too unlikely, anyone is free to pick this up and continue it.
This is an initial version, to get the basics working. I have some plans for more advanced filter logic, but I wanted to get the working base in place. That said, no promises of anything. I made this for me, and I share it for anyone else to use. I promise no support, and no continued development.
