Brief Thief
Version: 3.1
by: mutiny [More]
Brief Thief has been fixed! If you tried it before please try it again.
( The API was changed and broke how item data was previously gathered, fixed in 3.0+ )



A fast and simple way of displaying information about stolen goods

Features
  • Displays the number of stolen items and their total value
  • Shows automatically when talking to guards and fences
  • Toggleable clemency cooldown timer (when applicable)
  • Customize with settings panel and / or chat commands

How to use

New! Type /loot or assign a keybind (displays automatically when an event is called)



-- Optional chat commands --

All settings can be changed without the panel by using commands

Change color by typing the color after /loot (eg./loot orange)

Toggle events by typing the event after /loot (eg./loot fence)


Message from developer

I am an amateur hobby dev so work is slow in addition to learning

You can see my other addon here: esoui.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=1606 (lets you quickly jump between any homes in ESO)

I'm currently learning c# so I don't plan on updating my addons for now but I will likely work on any bug reports or feature requests

Thank you for understanding


New! Fixed compatibility with pChat. Added a settings panel and administered some bug fixes.
3.1 public release
- fixed keybind (my bad, its been a while working with ESO)
- updated LAM2 menu to API 100022
- organized source code a little more

[dev note]
Like usual if you encounter any bugs please report them :)

3.0 public release
- complete rewrite of addon, functionality has been fixed

[dev note]
Zenimax silently updated the API which broke Brief Thief without warning. Thanks to cag_dk and Fish for alerting me of it. I was only going to patch the broken part but for some perspective I wrote these addons when I first started programming and I have been studying lower levels every day since. Reading my old code after knowing what I know now made me confused, disgusted, and angry. I rewrote the whole thing so the source is very clean so in theory if there were any old bugs they are fixed now as the code is new.

2.1 public release
- updated LAM2, hopefully that solves an unreproducible bug

2.0 public release [see notes]
- rewrote many functions so watch for bugs pls
- added a sweet settings panel I def didnt copy from my other addon
- removed /loot help (was redundant with settings panel)
- added some more settings and did some stuff

[dev note]
If you use legacy commands to edit settings it will work but the settings panel wont show the correct info until reloadui

1.9.2 public release
- fixed compatibility with pChat (thanks Dioscuri ^^)

1.9.1 public release [see notes]
- completely reworked multiple functions to further optimize
- added a check to fences so the same string does not repeat
- further upgraded debugging tool (for me not you)

[dev notes]
chat moves slow in crime dens so letting fence run wild was spammy if done in succession
many things have been reworked to clean up code. If bugs are found PLEASE report them
I tested it a few times so it SHOULD be okay. This one is just paranoid :)

1.9 public release
- added clemency timer to broadcast (can toggle with /loot clem)
- completely reworked event handling -- code is cleaner now
- added a sweet debug mode to make mutinys life easier

1.8.1 public release [see note]
- fixed help text box ascii (mutinys text size was scaled to 15)

[dev note]
Nothing else changed so in theory nothing should be broken

1.8 public release [removed download]
- added thieves guild bonus % to total value (if applicable)
- added help command for quick ver check command list and github
- "updated" hearthfire (all I did was change 1 number in .txt)

1.7 public release
- fixes new installs defaults

1.6 public release (broken) [see note]
- fence event
- event toggling

[dev note]
this build works if you create the booleans yourself, to do that type /loot fence and /loot guard

1.4 - 1.5 mutiny broke unreleased

1.3 public release
- color editing
- variable saving

1.1 - 1.2 mutiny broke unreleased

1.0 initial release

I have completely rewrote my addon and fixed the bug that broke functionality. Zenimax quietly changed their API which broke how Brief Thief was handling the stolen items (which is why it was always 0, it couldn't find any)! Thanks again you guys for letting me know. It should be fixed now and if it's not be sure to let me know.

Thank you for letting me know. Keep in mind this addon was developed over a year ago so Zenimax could have changed the API and silently broke it. The functionality is to display the total items and their worth, so in your case 20+ and whatever their value. "0 stolen items worth 0 gold" would unfortunately be a bug.

I have not played ESO for some time -- I just came here to check my addons and saw both comments. I will download the PTS and see if I can investigate what's going on.

I now highly doubt the issue is on my end. Unless I somehow completely misunderstood the description and point of this addon, and it is not at all meant to show the value of stolen goods in your inventory when doing /loot, it just straight up is not doing what it is supposed to do

I can not reproduce this bug. Even with pChat the addon seems to work fine.

I updated LAM2 inside of the addon and pushed an update. Please let me know if that does not fix it.

Ow, thanks for the bug report. An update of something must be messing with it. I will prioritize a fix for that when I come back to ESO.

-- stealth edit --
I am downloading the PTS and will bugfix Brief Thief sometime soon. Take care and see you then

Thanks mutiny ^^
Hmm that's interesting, I'll investigate tomorrow. Thank you for letting me know. Also Lain a best
Thanks, one of my favorite animes ^^

I was in the middle of editing my post just a couple minutes ago when you replied to let you know it happens when clemency is on cooldown as well.

Take care.
I just figured out what's wrong. I couldn't replicate the issue until I downloaded pChat, I've uploaded a fix. Sorry for late patch.

Eventually there will be a content update with the stuff I learned from my other addon. Just when I manage time. ^^
Thanks a lot for the patch. I should have mentioned I used pChat, sorry about that.

Not a problem about time. The addon still worked fine, just the extra characters at the end. Besides, you guys do this stuff on your free time for fellow ESO players for free. I'm just grateful for the plentiful addons provided by the community.

Looking forward to the future content. Take care mutiny

1.9.1 Update

Thanks for the great addon. The Thieves Guild bonus % and clemency timer are great additions.

With the 1.9.1 update the clemency timer display shows this at the end of the output:



This also shows up when the clemency timer is on cooldown as well.

Thanks mutiny ^^

Ohh lol I understand now. I'll take a quick look at other addons and see how they package theirs and do the same. Thank you for letting me know.
