Auto Research  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.1
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.

Hah, yeah I just seen the "None" option today, sorry I missed that. I finally got around to installing FCO and set Auto Research to just use bank items. That combo works well enough. Thanks for the great addon!

2. As for the request...would like to see a simple toggle option to allow researching all set items at or below a quality threshold. For example, all set items that are blue quality or below. Just a simpler option for those who don't need all the options that go along with using LibSets.

2. I've noted your feature request for a future version. Thanks for the suggestion!

You've got Nirnhoned as "9" for both armor and weapons, but as I recall Nirnhoned is a very popular trait that sells well, and so is Training which is in the middle priority. So while I would assume "1" is the top priority, the way this is set up makes me think "9" is the top priority.
1 = top priority.
The priorities are customizable for a reason. If you want nirnhoned to be higher priority, go ahead.

Edit: To explain a bit further, since Nirncrux is the most expensive armor / weapon trait material, there are much fewer people who want to research it at all. It has always been prioritized lower to allow for people who wanted to churn out 8/8 writ crafters without incurring the cost of the trait stones.

Researching all nirn doesn't make sense as an investment for reselling. Selling any weapons/armor for research - even nirnhoned ones - doesn't really make hardly any money. They are commodities that a large portion of the player base can make ad infinitum, and are usually listed at-cost as a service to newer players that don't already have a 9/9/9 crafting character.

The _only_ reasons to research nirnhoned these days are: a) to use it yourself for crafted items, transmuted items; b) to maximize your master writ drop chances; or c) to be able to craft research items for others as a service, but not for profit.

Check the addon settings to make sure the different filters available aren't excluding all of the items in your inventory and/or bank from being researched automatically. There are many different things (item quality, FCO item saver, item style, item set) that can cause an item to not be researched.

This is already scheduled to be included with the next version, as well as prioritizing non-set items over set items, all things being equal.

Yeah, works like a charm now. thanks for your work.

I assume i can delete ..

and not cheapStyles[itemStyle])

..on line 135 to ignore the style too?

I have tons of items from random dungeons that i don't use for any other purpose than research on my writ army.


EDIT: so removing that part caused plenty of errors, then i removed whole..

if quality > ar.settings.maxQuality[craftSkill] or (ar.styledCategories[itemTraitTypeCategory] and not cheapStyles[itemStyle]) then
return
end

..and it works, obviously it also removes the quality filter and will research your golden items. But thats not my problem

Also a feature request: pls make it pick the shortest research time.

If they are equipment that is part of an item set, the only way to get them to research is to mark them for research with FCO Item Saver. Also, if the motif style is of any style other than the base racial styles, Ancient Elf, Barbaric or Primal, they are also excluded by default unless marked explicitly with FCO Item Saver.
Please no, just avoid FCO, I hate this mod with 8 librairies for nothing -.-

I'm here for the same reason...
