6.2.5
Auto Research  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.4.1
by: silvereyes [More]
Automatically starts researching traits when at a craft station.

When paired with the Research Craft addon, you can to craft a bunch of research gear to store in your bags/bank, and then have your character automatically research the next item from the stockpile according to your configured priorities.

Dependencies

You must install the following libraries separately from this addon in order for it to work. I highly recommend using the Minion addon manager to simplify this process.

Use Cases
  • New players that want to store a bunch of research gear at once in the bank up front so they don't have to go find/buy/request new gear every few hours.
  • Storing a ton of research gear in your writ alts' bags so you don't have to manage their research manually.
  • Established crafters that haven't finished research, but tend to forget about it due to the long research times can store 10 or so research items in the bank so they don't have to worry about managing research for several months.

Configuration

The only gear used currently are the following:
  • No items locked with FCO Item Saver (v1.0+ required)
  • No items locked with in-game lock
  • Items marked for research with FCO Item Saver (Overrides all of the following exclusions. v1.0+ required)
  • Quality less than or equal to the maximum configured quality. Default is blue quality (arcane).
  • Style is one of the configured allowed styles. By default, these include the racial styles plus Ancient Elf, Barbaric and Primal. You can either choose these in settings, or use the Auto Research right click menu to enable the checkbox for the style to allow it.
  • Non-set equipment, or sets that have been specifically selected. LibSets is required for selecting sets. Once enabled in settings, you can either choose a set manually in settings, or use the Auto Research right click menu to enable the checkbox for the set to allow it.
  • Only equip slots (e.g. Helm, Cuirass, etc.) that have been assigned a priority under the desired trait line (e.g. Blacksmithing) will be researched, in the priority configured. Equip slots set to (none) will not be researched.

Equipment pieces are selected for research based on fastest research times. For example, if you have all clothing pieces 8 trait researched *except* for medium armor helmets that have 7 traits, then medium armor helmets will be given preference over any other clothing pieces.

Trait research order is customizable under Settings > Addons > Auto Research, with 1 being the highest priority, and 9 being the lowest.

All else being equal, gear in the current player inventory is given preference over gear in the bank, lower quality items are preferred over higher quality ones, and lower level items are preferred over higher level items. You can also choose to select gear from just the current player inventory or just the player bank.

I did all my writs yesterday, with Dolgubon's and Auto Research 1.9.0 both enabled, and I don't get this issue. Are you getting the same error if you disable writworthy and traitbuddy?

Perhaps try moving your Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables\AutoResearch.lua file out of SavedVars to a backup location while logged out of the game, and then logging back in and trying again? If that solves the problem, please send me your moved saved variables file, so I can see what was causing the corruption.

Thanks!

To Silvereyes

In life it happens to have bad days, and this one, even if it is not an excuse, was a very bad day.

I took after you after feeling your post was agressive when it is not.

I present you my apologizes and wish you will accept them

Sincerely
Anceane

Make sure you actually update your addons, even if the updated date is not today. Summerset and Jewelry Crafting compatibility was added weeks ago.

I'll add the option to the feature requests list. I'm already checking for FCOIS research marks, so it shouldn't be too much hassle to simply exclude other items.
I'm nearly done with my first character's research, but it will be a hoot to use this for my second character, whose research I've been deferring. It's a hoot, that's what this is. :-)

It's a good thing he reported it. I never saw the error because I've used both together since my first week of play in February.
I'm glad I could be of some help. Not the method I would have chosen, but hey, whatever it takes I suppose...

I just can't believe that I was the only person that did this and said something. This is the Internet: People always complain.

If you're using neither FCOItemSaver or the older(?) ItemSaver, I'll bet that I can pitch you a compelling use case. I can't imagine playing the game without it at this point. Is that addiction? I could probably live without AutoResearch, especially since its usefulness is limited by having things to research; I will *always* need FCOItemSaver!

Actually, I love auto research, but i do not need FCOitemsaver. So i can understand your wish, but sometimes some prefer simple things. This kind of wish should only be optional, fitting for those who wants and those who dont.
Good grief, you quoted it yourself but didn't read it....

It was the presence of such integration in AutoCategory - category rules can be created that query whether and how an item is marked - that made me aware that such a thing is possible.

It also seems to lack explicit awareness of home chests, which could be useful for some as an addition to the Bags to search for equipment to research option. I would have found that useful myself before I finally subscribed and stopped needing to rely so heavily on those chests. The game is especially cruel to unsubscribed players trying to do heavy crafting, so anything that gives them a modicum of relief would likely be welcomed.
