Magic Sorter: Furniture Storage Automation
Version: 20
by: Architectura [More]
Automatically sort and store away your unused furniture into any extra homes that you may have. Simply select the homes that you use for furniture storage and assign furniture categories and/or racial styles to each of those homes. Then watch as your character ports from one house to the next, moving your stored furniture between those homes based on your selections.

For example, if you assigned the following furniture categories to these homes...

Ample Domicile
Furniture Categories: Courtyard, Lighting
Racial Styles: All

Coldharbour Surreal Estate
Furniture Categories: Dining, Hearth, Structure
Racial Styles: Breton, High-elf

...then Magic Sorter would jump your character between your Ample Domicile and Coldharbour Surreal Estate homes and...

Move all styles of Courtyard and Lighting furnishings to your Ample Domicile (from your Coldharbour Surreal Estate).
Move all Breton and High-elf Dining, Hearth and Structure furnishings to your Coldharbour Surreal Estate (from your Ample Domicile).

A few quick things to note:
- You may sort as many homes as you would like, organized however you wish - even by furniture subcategories.
- Only the homes that you select are sorted; your other homes are left undisturbed.
- If you do not assign a particular furniture category to any homes at all, those types of items will be left undisturbed.

Setup is as simple as...

1. Open your Inventory and click "Magic Sorter" at the bottom of the Inventory menu.
2. Select one or more dedicated storage homes (do not select any homes that you have decorated or that you do not want to use for furniture storage)
3. Drag any combination of furniture category and subcategories into each storage home to have those types of items moved to that home from the other selected homes
4. You may also further refine your sorting by restricting which styles of items are stored in which homes (Breton items stored here, Daedric items stored there, etc.)
5. Click Start and get yourself a coffee... or just watch the sorting magic unfold.

2019-12-07 Version 1
First release.

2019-12-08 Version 2
Added detail panel to Magic Sorter status window that lists each storage houses' name and the number of remaining outbound and inbound items.
Your character will now automatically jump to the home's entry when starting Magic Sorter.
Your furnishings will be placed slightly further back into the home to avoid placing larger items in a manner that overlaps the home's entry point.

2019-12-09 Version 3
Updated to prefer the placement of smaller stacks of items in order to free inventory space more quickly.
Updated to prefer the removal of larger stacks of the same item type in order to use inventory space more efficiently.
Reaching the Special Furnishing limit will no longer prevent additional Traditional Furnishings from being stored in the home.
The "Resume" button will now work properly.
Minor user interface adjustments.

2019-12-11 Version 4
Renamed to Magic Sorter: Furniture Storage Automation for clarification of the purpose of this addon.
Sorting now requires at least 1 available inventory slot when starting; please don't actually try to sort with only 1 available inventory slot.
Sorting now initially visits each storage home at least once to assess the available storage capacity.
Sorting will no longer stop functioning properly if your inventory becomes nearly full with items that cannot be placed in another storage home.
The five most recent actions (placements, removals, house jumps) will now show just below the detail panel while sorting.
Removed the non-functional "Furniture, All" category.
Further optimized the storage algorithm.
Minor user interface adjustments.

2019-12-12 Version 8
Resolved an error that would appear when leaving a house.
Resolved an error that would appear when attempting to sort from outside one of your own homes.
Resolved an issue that could prevent a storage house with no assigned categories from being visited for the removal of items destined for other homes.
Added a "Stack Furniture" option to the Storage Wizard that will automatically layout stored items neatly; disable this option to leave already stored items undisturbed.
Added the number of Traditional and Special Furnishing slots available to the list of storage homes on the detail panel.
Added tool tips, to the list of storage homes on the detail panel, that list the category(ies) assigned to each home.
Updated the "Stack Furniture" option to organize furniture into tiered, fanned and more presentable stacks that are sized more appropriately for the size of the home.
Storage will automatically suspend operation upon receiving an Activity Finder ready check or when entering a Battleground or an Alliance War campaign.
Magic Sorter will no longer stack items on top of your character in some homes if you disable the "Stack Furniture" option.
Further optimized the storage algorithm.

2019-12-18 Version 9
Resolved an issue that could cause sorting to fail whenever your character had stolen furnishings in their inventory.
Split the details panel into two separate tabs: Storage Houses and Action Log.
The Action Log now scrolls and shows up to the last 1,000 actions taken by Magic Sorter.
Upon completion, Magic Sorter now shows the Action Log for your review.
Renamed the "Stack Furniture" option to "Organize Furniture" for clarity.
Further refined the organizational layout of stored items when the "Organize Furniture" option is enabled for additional compactness.

2019-12-21 Version 10
Resolved an issue that would place sorted furniture a great distance from the home's entrance when the "Organize Furniture" option was disabled.
Added a summary of the number of items that could not be stored due to a lack of capacity to the final sort report; these figures are broken down by Storage House as well as your inventory.

2019-12-22 Version 11
Revised the completion summary report to instead list furniture categories, if any, for which there was insufficient room to store those types of items based on your storage house category assignments.
The last sort's completion summary report will be shown side-by-side with the wizard's House Selection and Category Assignment screens to allow you to more easily adjust your houses/category assignments to address insufficient storage capacity, if necessary.

2019-12-24 Version 12
Now you may optionally assign specific furniture style(s) to each storage house. When one or more style(s) are assigned to a storage house, only furnishings of that style will be stored there.

2019-12-24 Version 14
Bug fixes.

2019-12-27 Version 15
Bug fixes.

2019-12-30 Version 16
Added a new Quick Sort mode that will perform an abbreviated sort in significantly less time.
* Quick Sort works by remembering your storage homes' inventories after your first full sort is completed.
* Please enable Magic Sorter for all of your characters in order to make sure that Magic Sorter's knowledge of your homes' inventories remains accurate and up-to-date.
* A full sort will always be required after adding or removing storage homes or changing category or style assignments.
Furniture item tool tips will now indicate the furniture subcategory and style in order to better assist you in planning your storage allocation.
After having visited your home for the first time, the Magic Sorter wizard will show the currently number of Traditional item slots used (as well as Special item slots in the associated tool tip).
The Magic Sorter wizard will now show tool tips on furniture category tags that indicate which storage home(s) the category is assigned to.
The Magic Sorter wizard will now show tool tips on selected storage homes that indicate which racial style(s) are assigned to the home.

Sort Bound Items Only?

Sorry if I missed this capability in the description but can Magic Sorter selections include only bound or unbound items?

My goal is to have a couple homes storing only bound (or crown) furniture items and another couple homes storing unbound (sellable) furniture.

Feature request:

a button or keybind to "just sort this house."

Use case: Magic Sorter cannot discern between bound and unbound furnishings. I'd like to throw all my bound crown store furnishings and whatnot into some house manually and then just click a button to sort it using Magic Sorter's Organize Furniture feature.

Yeah, that's an A+ hole move by the add-on author to do it without asking for confirmation and without even a notice.

The function responsible for this is:

function MSorter:InitializeKeybinds()
if not self.initializedKeybinds then
self.initializedKeybinds = true
KEYBINDING_MANAGER.IsChordingAlwaysEnabled = function() return true end
ZO_CreateStringId("SI_BINDING_NAME_" .. self.KeybindId, "Magic Sorter")
self:CreateKeybind(self.KeybindId, KEY_F10, 0, 0, 0, 0)
end
end

You can comment oout the line starting with "self:" to avoid it, but TBH, that alone is enough to scrap the add-on and think twice before touching anything else made by Architectura.

Edit: Makes you wonder what surprises might be hidden in, e.g., https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info2516-PriorityMail.html

Conservatory ,Crystals

Hey there! Do you plan to add the Conservatory, Crystals category? Apparently ZOS has added this new designation because it's not in the Magic Sorter category list, so I'm having to store new items in this category manually.

Love this addon otherwise!

Re: Re: unrecognized items

I am also having this issue, it doesn't recognize several items, ranging from simple base game furnishes to newer DLC furnishings.

  • Boulder, Flat Grey
  • Boulder, Moss Covered
  • Cave Deposit, Stalagmite Group
  • Dye Station
  • Fern, Healthy Green
  • Fern, Lush
  • Fern, Young Healthy
  • Rock, Slanted Algae
  • Rocks, Smooth Set
  • Tree, Dead Marsh

I'm not sure what I might be doing wrong. At the moment it seems like they are literally being skipped.

Thanks in advance for your help!

My below post seems to be solved now. However, MS will not sort any Ashen Infernace Gate (|H1:item:165866:5:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1:0:0:1:0:0:0|h|h) or Tusks of the Orc Father (|H1:item:166436:5:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1:0:0:1:0:0:0|h|h) into my Coldharbour Surreal Estate. CSE is set to ALL furnishings and ALL styles.

EDIT: Also, Solitude Wall, Low Curved Stone |H1:item:167312:3:1:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0|h|h

I tried deleting my MS's SavedVariables file and starting fresh. If I have any of the above items in my inventory, it claims that all furnishings were placed and sorted, but those remain in my inventory. If I place them manually in the house, the automatic sort does not move them.

Having a UI issue. On houses with lots of categories assigned, scrolling breaks.

Sorry that I finished the addon after you finished organizing your storage homes.
I will look into adding a bound/unbound filter and a multi-select racial style filter to each storage home as options for you though.
Thanks for the suggestion

I'm not sure if I understand it correctly.
What are storage homes meant to be?
Houses with a storage chest?

Or other question:
The addon will move furniture items to my storage chests inside my homes,
or it will move furniture items to my houses (decorate them somewhere)?

Thanks for the clarification.
I will clarify the answers to these questions in the description but to answer you here as well:
This addon lets you assign furniture categories to one or more of your undecorated, unused homes ("storage homes"). Once assigned, your character automatically jumps back and forth between those homes, moving the furniture between the homes based on those furniture category assignments.

For example, if you set up the following configuration:

Ample Domicile
Lighting

Coldharbour Surreal Estate
Conservatory
Structure

Linchal Grand Manor
Dining
Hearth

Then the addon would jump your character between your Ample Domicile, Coldharbour Surreal Estate and Linchal Grand Manor homes in order to:

Move all Lighting furnishings to your Ample Domicile
Move all Conservatory and Structure furnishings to your Coldharbour Surreal Estate
Move all Dining and Hearth furnishings to your Linchal Grand Manor

Just to note: Any furnishing categories left unassigned would be left untouched - none of those types of furniture would be moved anywhere. Also, none of your other homes, if you owned more than those three homes, would be touched either. You would effectively be organizing your Ample Domicile, Coldharbour Surreal Estate and Linchal Grand Manor homes to serve as "storage homes" for those categories of furnishings.
