The Librarium  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.81
by: Alianym [More]
Welcome to The Librarium!
*Now with a donation page! Not required, but definitely appreciated.

Auran, fair wayfarer. Here is an AddOn that I've used for adding custom books to the world of Elder Scrolls Online. Please see the screenshots for an idea of what the interfaces look like, and download the latest version to see it in action.

Different zones house different books. For the purposes of this AddOn, there was originally only one book per each zone of; Auridon, Glenumbra, and Stonefalls. More have since been added, and will continue to be added. These books can be discovered on any shelf in their specific zones, and will then be available in the Librarium. You can set up a keybind for interaction (under the heading; LibCustomInteract), and either use another keybind to toggle the interface (under the heading; Alianym's Suite) or use the /librarium command.

More To Come...
The amount of texts is growing! Through my own prolific writing, and perhaps the aid of certain other individuals or communities. At any rate, I'm still looking to build it out more in the future... and now you can help! (See below)

The Editor:
Accessible via keybind within the appropriate section of the Librarium, (or using the Slash Command; /librariumwrite), is a custom editor allowing you to write (and later edit!) your own books for local viewing.

See the uploaded screenshots for ideas, or take a look in-game!

Code for the Editor was based on work done by Gigon for GGN Book2Clipboard, (used with permission).

Some Notes:
  • The first line is always the title. Everything that follows is the main text of the book. Currently a title is required.
  • Current Character-Limit is 5000. If you can't type any more, you've probably hit this limit.
  • You can change the Book Medium with a key press. Check out your text in a book, a letter, or even a sequence plaque!
Send In Your Texts:
I've recently added a new button to the Librarium which appears when you hover your cursor over a book you've written in the "Personal Writings" section of the Librarium. This button will send a copy of that book to me, along with values set up in the AddOn settings menu which include:
  • To whom to attribute the work (if it's a different @name to the one from which I receive the mail I will be curious!) This can be kept blank or just type "anonymous".
  • To list zones where you'd like your book to be found
At that point I'll look it over and see if it's suitable to be added to the Librarium for all the users to enjoy.

Some Notes:
  • I'm happy to look at non-English submissions. I might have to translate them, but I'm not going to close the door on this one
  • This is primarily for in-universe texts, but I don't want to infringe on any existing Elder Scrolls character stories, so I won't be accepting submissions of Ayrenn's personal journal or tales of your escapades with Count Verandis – not unless I add an in-universe "editor's note" to your book about how it's of dubious credibility and unverifiable. My aim is to include as many people as possible, and that's difficult when everyone is writing about how they helped Naryu Virian in Deshaan against the Llodos plague
  • No real-world discussion or commentary. This is set in the Elder Scrolls universe and ESO timeline, let’s keep it there please. (If you want to lean on the fourth wall a little feel free, just don’t take it down with a sledgehammer)

DM me with any questions or thoughts.
The comments section is the place for bugs.

Guess what?
You can also save your mail into your Librarium! This currently only works for items in the Inbox, but I'm planning to expand the feature to include Sent items as well. This currently categorizes mail into Hireling, Player, and System mails.

This addition is compatible with Postmaster Mail

Have You Seen The Latest?
Gamepad support is here! There's now a Gamepad-integrated version of the Librarium UI (user interface), (and you can save mail from the Gamepad base-game interface), if you want to use that. If you're in keyboard mode and try to use it, I make no warranties, but it should work fine if you want to continue using the keyboard UI with Gamepad. Just check out the new keybinding (CONTROLS -> Alianym's Suite -> Open The Librarium – Gamepad).

Notes:
  • The Gamepad UI doesn't include the prompt to write your own texts. That's much more of a keyboard thing. You can view books you have written with the editor in the Gamepad UI, but to actually do the editing you can either type /librariumwrite or go through the keyboard interface which is still available to you.

Settings
I introduced a settings panel where you can swap between account- and character-wide Librariums. This includes discovered books and locally-written books in addition to saved letters. There are also now options to include/exclude certain details such as in-universe date from saved letters.

Required Libraries:
LibAlianym
LibAddonMenu
v1.71
  • NEW BOOK: One new book to find! (Credit: @Scholars_Guild – NA Megaserver)
  • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue with choice keybinds not appearing in the Adventures category

v1.80
  • FEATURE UPDATE: You can now choose to save outgoing mails! There's a new toggle in the AddOn settings menu, and it's off by default. (Currently only works for keyboard)
  • NEW: With this update I've added the donation tab to this AddOn page (up the top, next to the Comments tab)! If you've got something to spare, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

v1.71
  • NEW BOOK: One new book to find! (CREDIT: Fyroniel Birdsong – EU Megaserver)

v1.70a
  • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue with certain text not appearing in FR and RU language clients

v1.70
  • Fixed it so new users shouldn't get a pop-up mentioning their Saved Variables have been converted (which wasn't necessary because they were new – welcome by the way!)
  • NEW FEATURE: Now works with Gamepad! (Everything except the custom-book writer, which you can still access with /librariumwrite in either keyboard or gamepad mode)
    • I haven't tested extensively with Gamepad, so if I have (m)any Gamepad users let me know how it feels if you like.
    • There is a new keybind you can use to open the Gamepad version of the Librarium UI, CONTROLS -> Alianym's Suite -> Open The Librarium – Gamepad, I kept it this way in case any Gamepad user wants to keep using the old keyboard UI. Don't know if it'll work out that way, but I wanted to give the option for now.

v1.64a
  • Fixed a bug with keybinds to open the Librarium UI

v1.64
  • Now you can click on links in books! Enjoy. (Thanks Inspector_Miles for getting me to look into this!) Hopefully nothing else breaks but if it does leave a comment or message me as per usual

v1.63c
  • Added a bunch of German (DE) translations (danke Baertram!)
  • Fixed an apparently longstanding bug (feature? :| ) that meant non-English Hireling mail wasn't going to the Hireling subcategory. This should now work for French, German, and Russian.

v1.63b
  • Fixed an issue with the data conversion (hopefully there aren't more, if so please let me know!)
    • It won't be retroactive, but should stop those that have yet to update from coming across the issue
    • See my discussion with Leia in the comments for more information and potential fix(es)

v1.63a
  • Overhauled how data is saved. Character-wide is as before (specific to each character). Account-wide is now megaserver specific (NA/EU)
    • The next time you log in or /reloadui after applying this update your current account-wide variables will be copied to EU and NA data stores but from that point will progress individually. This will duplicate some data into both NA/EU data stores but there's no way I can tell which is supposed to belong to which megaserver retroactively. (You can probably go through afterwards and clean it up yourself if you want.)
    • I would recommend taking a back-up of your Saved Variable file before you update and log in next, but in the event you just want to trust me, I've tested it as thoroughly as I can and it works. (On Windows: "Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\SavedVariables\TheLibrarium.lua")
  • Fixed a typo in one of the new texts

v1.63
  • NEW BOOKS: Four new books to find! (CREDIT: Ace of Jokers, Astrande Direnni, 2x @ErkorLad – All NA Megaserver)
    • Renamed one category (Arts and Crafts -> Notes, Handbills, and Posters)
    • I have some books backlogged that I still aim to add in, but I'm prioritizing new authors in cases where I've already added multiple works by an existing author

v1.62b
  • Updated to better utilize LibAlianym

v1.62a
  • Updated description in the AddOn settings panel in-game to clarify how the new Keybind setup works (thanks for pointing this out, OneSkyGod)

v1.62
  • Reticle Updates/Improvements: Now requires LibAlianym
  • Now requires LibAddonMenu-2.0 (no longer optional)
  • New interact keybind is now set under the heading LibCustomInteract (this works contextually between The Compendium, The Librarium, and Pets and Treats)
  • Keybinds for The Librarium and The Compendium are now under the same header in CONTROLS
  • FEATURE UPDATE: Gold attachments and CODs are now stored in saved mails

v1.61
  • NEW BOOKS: Three new books to find! (CREDIT: [email protected], @Dementia5, and @TheAllegorist – All NA Megaserver)

v1.60
  • FEATURE UPDATE: Changed how books are found at shelves throughout Tamriel+
    • It's not foolproof, but you should see the same book at a shelf until you look away from the shelf, and seeing the same book across multiple shelves in a row should be less likely
    • The prompt for Librarium Books at bookshelves will now disappear if there are no new books to be found at the shelf, helping to reduce visual clutter. The books can still be re-read in the Librarium interface (Heading: READING ROOM)
  • FEATURE UPDATE: Saving a mail successfully will now play a sound every time, instead of queuing with the top-right notification. The text notification only plays once every few seconds at the fastest, which meant there could be occasional confusion as to whether or not mails saved in quick succession were actually all saved. This change should alleviate that

v1.55
  • FEATURE UPDATE: Saved letters are now sorted first alphabetically, then those with the same title are sorted by date (newest at the top)
    • Also updated the date format for EU megaserver to use dd/mm/yyyy, and keeping NA megaserver to use mm/dd/yyyy (this is retroactive)
    • I plan to add different options for sorting mail in the future
  • FEATURE UPDATE: Added a check so that if you spam the "Save Mail" key on the same mail multiple times in a row, it'll only save the once

v1.54a
  • API Update (Flames of Ambition)

v1.54
  • NEW BOOKS: Four new books to find! 2x (CREDIT: [email protected]), 2x (CREDIT: @Dementia5)

v1.53
  • NEW BOOKS: Two new books to find! (CREDIT: @Dementia5)
  • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where Attribution and Location settings for sent-in books weren't being sent properly in some instances
  • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where "book open" sounds weren't playing when (you guessed it) books were opened through the Librarium

v1.52.2
  • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue with a recent version that was causing significant frame rate drops when looking at bookshelves

v1.52.1
  • Bug Fix: Changed the format of how I receive texts that users send in, to accommodate longer titles

v1.52
v1.51
  • NEW BOOKS: One new book to find! (CREDIT: @OfTheEight)

v1.5.1
  • Fixed a reference issue that was resulting in a bug with sending in your custom books. You should be able to actually send them now. For reals.

v1.5
  • Choose Your Own Adventure! (CREDIT: ZOS – Smolder Scrolls)
    • Naryu Added! (Happy Heart's Day everyone!)

v1.4.3
  • Added support for French and German Elder Scrolls Calendars. If any of my translations are off, let me know and I'll fix them, quick-snap

v1.4.2
  • Changed the default variable setting to Character-Wide. This shouldn't affect current users' settings

v1.4.1
  • Added support for reading Librarium books from bookshelves in other languages
    • The books themselves are still in the language they were originally written
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a local reference being declared as global

v1.4
  • NEW FEATURE: Save your letters! There's now a new keybind displayed when you select mail in your inbox that allows you to save it to the Librarium. They're currently sorted into Hireling, Player, and System
  • Yes, I plan to add the ability to save sent letters into their own category as well. See the AddOn options for modifiable settings
  • This addition is compatible with Postmaster Mail

v1.3.2
  • Bug Fix: Stopped Librarium keybinds appearing where they oughtn't.
  • Bug Fix: Though it doesn't officially support Gamepad, at least it won't break it now. Keyboard can still be used to interact with the AddOn in Gamepad mode

v1.3.1
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a local reference being declared as global

v1.3
  • Choose Your Own Adventure! (CREDIT: ZOS – Smolder Scrolls)
    • Razum-dar Added!
  • Bug Fix: Fixed an occasional error where the reticle code would bug depending on AddOn load order

v1.28
  • NEW BOOKS: One new book to find! (CREDIT: Alianym)

v1.27.1
  • Bug Fix: Fixed issue with reticle on target

v1.27
  • NEW BOOKS: One new book to find! (CREDIT: @TheAllegorist, NA Megaserver)
  • Added a pop-up to inform you that your book is sending and which auto-closes when it's complete

  • Updated some edge-case code issues

v1.24
  • NEW BOOKS: Find one in the Valenwood, Summerset Isles, or the Gold Coast (CREDIT: @TheAllegorist, NA Megaserver –with an in-universe scribble by Alianym), and the other in the Alliance Capitals (CREDIT: Alianym)

v1.23.1
  • Bug Fix: Optional Dependency is now actually Optional

v1.23
  • NEW BOOK: Find it in the in-game regions of Cyrodiil and the Gold Coast (CREDIT: @TheAllegorist, NA Megaserver)
    • Trying out something with font/book combos for this book, so hopefully it doesn't break anything.
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a bug relating to incorrect book styles appearing when editing Personal Writings in some instances

  • NEW BOOK: Find it in the Mages/Guild regions within the Alliance Capitals (Elden Root, Mournhold, and Wayrest) (CREDIT: Discord Tag: NihilAzari#8709)

Hey there,

I was able to reproduce both these issues myself, and it's definitely odd.
I'll look into it! Thanks for letting me know.

Hello there!

Thanks for the appreciation! Also thanks for letting me know what you've tried and a good description of the issue. Always helps me help you.

I just tested on my end, and it's gone for me too. I think I have an idea what happened. When I updated the language files in a recent update, I must've renamed something incorrectly. Give me a few moments and if I'm right, should have a fix shortly!

Not a comprehensive one, no.

I list new books as I add them (in the Change Log) but haven't added locations there for the last few.
In-game in the Librarium interface you can see missing books in unlocked categories, but unless I unlock all categories from the start for everyone, you'll have to discover them incrementally. That's possible, however.

Their locations I left un-noted because I wanted them to be like Easter Eggs hidden around the place. Don't know how I'd put in-game a list of locations.

Also take a look at the latest update (once it's approved)! Hopefully it suits your purpose.

Hi there,

I played around to get a sense of how difficult this could be or not be, and it looks like it's doable. Don't know if it'll break anything but I'll give it a further look and scope it out.

It seems that after the separation the data was correctly transferred to the new sections NA and EU servers in the code. The first log-in into the game after that on the NA server the addon correctly accessed the new NA server section. On the EU side, however, the addon did not log into the new EU server section but stayed in the old, now obsolete, section that combined both servers. Apparently on the EU server, one needs to change from account-wide to char-wide and back to force the addon to acknowledge the new EU server section.

Thanks again for making the changes.
Ah, excellent! Good to know how to fix it. I bolded the part where you mention the fix in case people only read this top comment, but yep. You're welcome, and glad it all worked out in the end.

3) I did a backup before updating the addon .... because

Bad news:

On the EU server, the update seems to have acted like an addon reset. Every book read, every mail saved and every thing written personally is gone.

My question now is: Can I do a simple copy and paste of the saved mail either from my backup file or from the NA side using Notepad?
Hi again,

Wrote up a whole guide, then noticed something while trying to reproduce the error.

Just tested this on my end, and I want to confirm something with you...
On EU, can you check to see if your settings got reset to Character-Wide? If so, can you toggle it back to Account-Wide and see if everything is still there?
Hi,

was pretty sure before but just double-checked to be really certain: Account settings did not reset. Account-wide was and still is activated in the profil.
Huh. Alright. Well, in that case, take a look a few posts down at my soon-to-be-un-spoilered guide!
