Yet another recipe/motif tracker? Why use Character Knowledge?

Character Knowledge was created in response to some of the frustrations that I have with existing addons. Specifically...
  1. Character Knowledge is altaholic-friendly. It can track knowledge of characters across multiple accounts and even across servers.
  2. Character Knowledge has a concept of character priority. Most people have a "main" character that they prioritize for learning recipes and motifs, and Character Knowledge recognizes this and helps ensure that more important characters are given priority for distributing those extra copies of recipes and motifs that you found.
  3. Character Knowledge makes it easier to access information with a simple, straightforward UI.
  4. Character Knowledge gives players the option to share their information with friends via an export/import feature. No more need for manually compiling a list of missing motifs during the Anniversary Event.


What does this addon do, specifically?

Character Knowledge browser:
The main UI lets users browse through a master list of motifs, recipes, and furnishing plans, along with an overview of the extent of your characters' knowledge of these items.

Information added to tooltips throughout the game:
Whenever you look at an item tooltip for a recipe, plan, or motif, you'll see an overview of which characters know that particular item. In the case of chaptered motifs, you will also see an overview of your knowledge of all the chapters of this style.

Advanced Filters custom filter plugin:
For users of the Advanced Filters addon, Character Knowledge will also install a few custom filter plugins for Advanced Filters.
  • Version 1.2.9 (2021/08/05)
    • Sorting by the character ratio column in the browser UI will now take into consideration the total number of tracked characters

  • Version 1.2.8 (2021/08/02)
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.3.4; fixed a settings UI issue

  • Version 1.2.7 (2021/07/14)
    • Fixed a regression with the listing of the Ancestral Akaviri motif

  • Version 1.2.6 (2021/07/14)
    • Added support for Update 31 (Waking Flame)

  • Version 1.2.5 (2021/06/03)
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.3.1; corrected the number associated with the Thorn Legion crafting motif style

  • Version 1.2.4 (2021/05/20)
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.3.0; improved the data encoding format used by the export/import data sharing feature

  • Version 1.2.3 (2021/05/12)
    • Improved the handling of quest reward items

  • Version 1.2.2 (2021/05/03)
    • The new setting introduced in version 1.2.1 for the number of "pinned" characters is now a server-specific setting rather than a global installation-wide setting

  • Version 1.2.1 (2021/05/03)
    • The Advanced Filters plugin can now filter by account
    • It is now possible to configure the number of high-priority "pinned" characters whose detailed chapter knowledge information is displayed in the tooltips of chaptered motifs, in addition to that of the current character; originally, this was hard-coded to one
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.2.0

  • Version 1.2.0 (2021/05/02)
    • Revamped the display of motifs in the browser UI; this was done to address a number of issues:
      • Inconsistent formats of item names interfering with sort (French version)
      • Inaccuracies in the in-game names of motif items (French version)
      • New motifs that lack a full book item for use in the browser listing (e.g., Ancestral Akaviri)
      • The inability to sort by the name of the motif (the motif number was not in a separate column, so sorting was possible only on the motif number and not the name of the style)

  • Version 1.1.8 (2021/04/20)
    • Added support for Update 30 (Blackwood)

  • Version 1.1.7 (2021/03/16)

    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.0.5

  • Version 1.1.5 (2021/03/04)
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.0.4

  • Version 1.1.4 (2021/02/28)
    • It is now possible for external addons to add context menu items to this addon's browser UI
    • LibExtendedJournal updated to version 1.1.0

  • Version 1.1.3 (2021/02/27)
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.0.3

  • Version 1.1.2 (2021/02/26)
    • Added French localization by @jakez31
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.0.2

  • Version 1.1.1 (2021/02/26)
    • Browser: To improve clarity, recipes and furnishing plans will now be listed by their resulting crafted items, thus hiding the prefix (i.e., "Recipe", "Praxis", etc. will now be hidden); for furnishing plans, the hidden prefix can still be matched in the search filter
    • Browser: Fixed an issue causing the "-" special search term to exclude partially-completed motif styles

  • Version 1.1.0 (2021/02/25)
    • Browser: Since special provisioning recipes are level-agnostic, the level information for these recipes have been replaced with sourcing information
    • Browser: For recipes and furnishing plans, it is now possible to link the resulting crafted items in chat, via the right-click context menu
    • Browser: "+" or "-" can now be used as special search terms to filter for known and unknown items, respectively; for example, "desk +" can be used to find all known desk plans, "ambrosia -" can be used to find all unknown ambrosia recipes, and "+" by itself will hide all unknown items
    • LibCharacterKnowledge updated to version 1.0.1

... I assume, it goes to Item Set Browser (though not sure which add-on adds markers), but can the item sets missing for diff accounts also made to be marked, too?

Duh. Somehow (edit: because of the "Lib" part , I expected the interface to appear in the same settings part as the Character Knowledge and since it wasn't there, thought that LMAS (that I do have installed) only works if you run several accounts on the same installation, not shares it with different people.

Uh.... this feature is enabled by default and has been a part of the addon since the beginning.

It is rare, but possible, yes.

The data for recipes and furnishing plans are scanned by the addon every patch.

For motifs, part of that dataset is scanned. And part of it is curated. The curated data is the motif association data.

So the automatic scan will discover that there is a Thorn Legion Chests chapter. And the curated association data associates that chapter page with the Thorn Legion crafting style (and also identifies the motif number). The curated data is hard-coded in and is generated by a separate data curator addon. The reason this data curation happens externally is because it involves examining the name of the item, and is thus the process of generating the association data is a language-specific one. However, once the motif item IDs are associated with the relevant style IDs, then that association of numeric IDs is language-agnostic and can be used in any region.

With just the automatically-scanned data (if the curated association data is missing), it's possible to track who knows a particular chapter page or book when looking at that chapter page or book. The association data enables the fancier features like seeing if you know the legs chapter while you're looking at the tooltip for the chests chapter.

All of this happens in LibCharacterKnowledge, which is the core of the addon. Character Knowledge itself is just the the UI.

(If ZOS were to ever add API functions that associates a motif with its corresponding style, then this whole curated data thing won't be necessary. But such a thing does not exist, which is why the curated association data is necessary.)

LOL, thanks.

The problem is the result of item ID 166987, which is named "Crown Crafting Motif 91: Thorn Legion Style".

This is a ZOS bug; their in-game name for this item should have been 90 like all the other Thorn Legion items, but they labeled it 91. Since this item had the highest item ID of all the Thorn Legion items, it was the last to be processed by the data curator, so it had the "final word", so to speak.

In any case, I've modified my data curator to ignore this outlier item, and Character Knowledge 1.2.5 has the corrected data.
Heh. When checking why my own and lorebooks addon's counts don't match, I found that there's a motif in-game currently named "Crafting Motif XX: Deadlands Gladiator" and I was only counting numbers.

That said, about your data curator and stuff, can you tell me where/how do you run the check for existing plans/recipes? I didn't look at the code too closely, but could not locate it at the first glance and I recall you mention you build it, not use the preloaded data.

Character Knowledge determines your motif knowledge by looking your your knowledge of the motif lore books.

People are reporting a bug in Blackwood that the in-game lore book system is incorrectly reporting some motif books as unknown, including Wayward Guardian.

Go to your in-game Lore Library and look under the Crafting Motifs section. Is Wayward Guardian shown as unknown there as well? If so, then you're affected by this bug, which is a bug on ZOS's end that affects both their own base game UI and addons.

For example, one of my friends knows 13/14 of the Wayward Guardian style, but their in-game Lore Book section is reporting 0 (but they do still know them, and if they try to use one of their duplicates, they get the error that they already know it and the motif is not consumed).
