The Compendium (Demo)
Version: 0.26b
by: Alianym [More]
Welcome to The Compendium!

Do you like Custom Quests? 'Cause I do! If you do too, then I have to disappoint you because this is only a demo of approximately one-and-a-half quests. But hey! Give it a whirl and get a taste of some custom user-created content built from the ground-up. See the screenshots for the features, but play for the experience!

NOTE: The second .5 of a quest takes you to the back room of Hazak's Hollow, which you will have to unlock through the quest; "Moon-Sugar Medicament".

Tell Me More...
This is mostly a demo/prototype I built in my spare time over time as I found inspiration and motivation. It will eventually demonstrate a bunch of features I aimed to create into a full-fledged Custom Quests Creator, but alas I haven't found the time to completely finish the three-quest arc I wanted to do, so here it is for those that are interested. Perhaps it will inspire someone – and if you want to find out more about any of this, send a DM, (I'd rather you not use the comments for 1:1 conversations as I imagine it could become very messy otherwise).

You can set up keybinds in the appropriate menu (interact keybind is under the heading; LibCustomInteract, and to toggle the interface use the keybind under the heading; Alianym's Suite), and there are some settings in the AddOn settings sub-menu. This is explicitly in BETA, so yes. I know some options may be missing. I might add things like slash commands to open/close the tab at a later date.

Inspirations
I've had a number of inspirations over the years that have brought me back to this project, so I figured I'd list them here:
  • When several library authors put an April Fools joke letter into several commonly used Libs.
  • Harven's Quest Journal – A different way of viewing quests in the game, more like the Journals of old
  • Journal Quest Log – This one gave me the idea that perhaps I could recycle the game's own Journal tabs, and maybe even expand out my own Quest Log to a custom Library as well. Also coincidentally a source of inspiration for my first published AddOn; The Questing Guide.
  • LibCustomDialog – This one is a recent addition, but a good potential in the realm of Custom Quests.

Required Libraries:
LibAlianym
LibAddonMenu
LibCustomDialog
v0.26b
  • Updated to better utilize LibAlianym

v0.26a
  • Updated description in the AddOn settings panel in-game to clarify how the new Keybind setup works (thanks for pointing this out, OneSkyGod)

v0.26
  • Minor text changes to quest texts
  • Reticle Updates/Improvements: Now requires LibAlianym
  • 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, and keybinds may need to be re-bound
  • Updated some array indexing

v0.25
  • Overhauled the first half of Quest 2
    • Sends you to locations unlocked during/after the Hazak's Hollow quest (which makes it a pre-req)
    • Before anyone gets too excited, the AddOn is not actually creating items to loot, AddOns can't do that. It's technical mimicry and books you 'pick up' can be found later in the "Library" tab of The Compendium

v0.20a
  • API Update (Flames of Ambition)

v0.20
  • Overhaul of the code and inner workings. Now uses LibCustomDialog for NPC chatter instead of a Dialogue Wheel
  • Currently only the first quest has been overhauled, and the second quest has been disabled for now
  • Due to the overhaul all settings have been reset to default values, and you may need to unbind/re-bind your Keybinds

v0.10.1
  • Initial Release

I've been working (in association with another intrepid author) on code to standardize creating this type of AddOn and I have a number of 'demos' at various stages at the moment but none released.

Shameless plug, but I have a Discord if you want to ask other questions regarding The Compendium or other in-progress demos, (or any of my AddOns really), which you're welcome to join. Otherwise yeah. Short answer; there's stuff happening behind the scenes!

Keep up the good work!

I am currently doing your custom Quest and I ROLFed at " catch fish with hands just like Pa! "
Pure GOLD!

Warning: Spoiler
Ahhh, right I see. In that case, as you were.
And thanks! Working on rebuilding the second quest now.

Here is a video showing how to fix it

Hi!

So this isn't actually something I can affect on my side, (nor should I be touching it too much), because the functionality you're seeing is created by a library required by my AddOn; (LibCustomDialog and not my AddOn itself. The library is tapping into the base game chat dialog windows, so because Immersive Interactions affects the base game chat dialog windows, it affects anything created with the Library as well.

I could potentially try and overwrite it, (because I can't create/insert audio, there's no purpose to hiding the chat), but it could likely break something else.

Fixes In Progress

Hey everyone,

Had a couple questions/comments about this and so I figured it’s worth mentioning I’m currently actively working on bringing this back up and running (with some improvements too). Stay tuned!
