CovetousCountess - Abah's Watch farming helper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5
by: Shinni [More]
This addon helps you to farm the new Abah's Watch motif.
The motif drops from "Large Laundered Shipments", which are a reward for the Thieves Guild tip board quests.
In the "The Covetous Countess" quest you have to obtain and deliver laundered items. This is a really easy task because the "Large Laundered Shipments" also contain laundered items.
If you keep the laundered items in your inventory, you can complete this quest over and over again really fast, because you only have to teleport between the countess to deliver the laundered items and the Thieves Guild refuge to complete and restart the quest.

This addon removes the possibility to accept the other quests on the Thieves Guild tip board. The interact button (E by default) will immediately quit the quest dialog, if the quest is not the Covetous Countess.
This means you'll only have to spam the E/Interact button until you receive this motif farming quest. See here.

Note: This addon uses the quest offer text to detect which quest is currently offered. As a result languages others than english, french or german are not supported (ie custom localizations of ESO).

Hey. Well I know that this is very old addon but maybe сan someone please explain me why I can't add Russian localisation into this addon? I've just added\checked Russian name for tip board into array, added first 5-12 chars from quest description and nothing happens.

UPD:

Just in case, now part of my code looks like:

Code:
-- little hack to get the current interactable name
local lastInteractableName
ZO_PreHook(FISHING_MANAGER, "StartInteraction", function()
	local _, name = GetGameCameraInteractableActionInfo()
	lastInteractableName = name
end)

-- localized names of the tip board
local tipBoard = {
	["Tip Board"] = true,
	["Brett für Aufträge"] = true,
	["Tableau des tuyaux"] = true,
	["Доска объявлений"] = true,
	-- missing for JP
}

-- first few characters of the covetous countess quest dialog
local dialog = {
	["eemed th"] = true,
	["ochgesch"] = true,
	["Voleurs "] = true,
	["точтимые"] = true,
	-- missing for JP
}


So why this doesn't work?

I used the following code change (version 5, not the 'fix' version from lach) to include the CutPurse's Craft pre-requisite quest in the search as posted by gajackson.

The changes below only update for English translation.

To update for other languages, do the following:
CovetousCountess addon uses the characters in positions 5-12 of the opening dialog for the search strings. The English CutPurse's Craft string used is demonstrated below (note, the opening double-quote is the character position 1):

"Some new faces ..."
123456789012345
....|******| <---- chars 5-12 ("e new fa")

Use the same technique from the dialog for other languages and add it to "local dialog" clause as was done for the English code addition.

Original code segment - lines 17-24

Code:
-- first few characters of the covetous countess quest dialog
local dialog = {
	["eemed th"] = true,
	["ochgesch"] = true,
	["Voleurs "] = true,
	-- missing for RU
	-- missing for JP
}
Updated code segment - lines 17-31 (lines in yellow were added)

Code:
-- first few characters of the covetous countess quest dialog
-- and initial cutpurse's craft (pre-requisite quest)
local dialog = {
	["eemed th"] = true,
	["ochgesch"] = true,
	["Voleurs "] = true,
	-- missing for RU
	-- missing for JP
        -- cutpurse's craft quest (pre-requisite pickpocket quest)
	["e new fa"] = true,
	-- missing for DE
	-- missing for FR
	-- missing for RU
	-- missing for JP
}
I have tested/verified on at least one toon.

The changes above made it so I no longer need to Disable the Covetous Countess addon and reload ui in order to pick up the CutPurse's Craft pre-requisite quest, then reverse the process to reactivate.

Thumbs down Causes Forced Disconnects From Server

This addon seems to occasionally cause the server to log you out when trying to use it.
Too many pings to the server in quick succession, I assume. Something like that.

Temp Fix almost worked ok

I hit E several times and got the Covetous Countess quest but I was then booted to the login screen.

Temp. Fix Unstable?

The temp. fix still usually seems to work, but it seems to cause some instability sometimes. Several times, as I activate the jobs board, ESO has sent me back to the Login screen with no error messages.

I think you found the problem. It works after I disabled the Minion update and reinstalled the temporary version.

I posted too soon. It worked this AM but not now. When I activate the quest board it acts as if it is giving the quest, but the quest doesn't appear in the journal.

I fixed it so it wouldwork with the new api, keep in mind that it's a tempory fix made on the corner of the table. Also automatized some stuff cause mashing a button is just bad for my keyboard

I discovered the problem with my new necromancer. I went back with my oldest character and confirmed the addon didn't work.

Broken by the patch it seems then

Not tested yet, but have you already the first quest needed with the board before using the addon ? From memory the addon was working only if you did the first quest board before.

(If you already did, then ignore my comment)
