Character Knowledge (Motif, Recipe and Furnishing Plan Tracker)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Yet another recipe/motif tracker? Why use Character Knowledge?

Character Knowledge was created in response to some of the frustrations that I have with existing addons. Specifically...
  1. Character Knowledge is altaholic-friendly. It can track knowledge of characters across multiple accounts and even across servers.
  2. Character Knowledge has a concept of character priority. Most people have a "main" character that they prioritize for learning recipes and motifs, and Character Knowledge recognizes this and helps ensure that more important characters are given priority for distributing those extra copies of recipes and motifs that you found.
  3. Character Knowledge makes it easier to access information with a simple, straightforward UI.
  4. Character Knowledge gives players the option to share their information with friends via an export/import feature. No more need for manually compiling a list of missing motifs during the Anniversary Event.


What does this addon do, specifically?

Character Knowledge browser:
The main UI lets users browse through a master list of motifs, recipes, and furnishing plans, along with an overview of the extent of your characters' knowledge of these items.

Information added to tooltips throughout the game:
Whenever you look at an item tooltip for a recipe, plan, or motif, you'll see an overview of which characters know that particular item. In the case of chaptered motifs, you will also see an overview of your knowledge of all the chapters of this style.

Advanced Filters custom filter plugin:
For users of the Advanced Filters addon, Character Knowledge will also install a few custom filter plugins for Advanced Filters.


LibCharacterKnowledge

Character Knowledge includes the LibCharacterKnowledge library. Addon authors who wish to use the library for their own addons can check out the the LibCharacterKnowledge Developer Reference. LibCharacterKnowledge is also available as a standalone download for users who want to use it without installing Character Knowledge.

You can sort by the known column.

Alternatively, the special search terms of "-" or "+" by themselves will show only unknown or known items, respectively.
Thank you for the reply. Really enjoying this addon. Thank you for taking the time to create it. It, and you are appreciated.

Love this addon.


I have four accounts that can log in here (my account and my three children also), and we routinely have to use different computers. Usually I get each account logged into my main one in order to consolidate the lists, but there are three outstanding unsolved issues:

1) Tracking Style Pages and Runebox collection over multiple accounts - Unknown Tracker does this (adds the tooltip as @me, @kid1, @kid2, @kid3 and lights up each in accordance if they have it on the account or not).

2) Some collectible/fragment objects are tracked within the game and state if you have the collectible that you create from it. Examples of this type of collectible may be Public Dungeon items (Psijic Snowglobe parts, Mummified Alfiq parts, etc) - it would be good if CK could tell us whether we own the finished product or not.

3) How could I export a list from one computer and merge it into another in a couple of easy steps? If this functionality doesn't exist - no biggie - but if I could easily just throw an exported file into OneDrive and click a magic button to import it into the files of another computer without having to log in, that would be nice. Not something to die on a hill for, but it would be nice.

But for the moment all filter plugins work so I'm not sure why the invertion with this one wouldn't.
Sorry, hadn't checked in on the comments section in a while.

I can't reproduce this problem on my end. I'm on consumables->recipes, using the Unknown filter, and it works as expected, and the inversion works as expected too.
Any suggestions on how to find out what goes wrong there?

This is a great addon, I like it a lot. We have many characters, many accounts, and it's still easy to use.

No icon overlay for one character

UPDATE: Solved! After some code browsing, I realized Loot Log was responsible for the symbols related to Character Knowledge tracking, and Loot Log was not enabled for the character that wasn't seeing symbols. Enabled it for that character and all is well now. :-)

Might help others if description page indicated some features depend on Loot Log also being active?

Design and programming is BRILLIANT. Really well structured (love the inheritance of defaults from global -> server -> account -> character), and implements exactly the options I need to see which Alt is "next in line" for a particular recipe, motif, or plan.

THANK YOU @65536!


----Original post below----

Fantastic addon. I am, however, having a problem with (1) character (my 9th, most recently created).

The addon is enabled for all characters and tracking of all items is enabled for all characters.

The tooltips (showing recipe/plan/motif knowledge by character) work for all characters. The extended journal, character knowledge tab works for all characters.

BUT.... On just character #9 -- the symbol overlays (with plus sign or pips) are not displayed for any items (recipes, motifs, or plans).

I "reset" the database and settings to defaults while on that character. Character Knowledge rescanned and the "Extended Journal, Character Knowledge" page displays correctly. But still, going to bank or store listings -- none of the items have the circular symbol overlay.

Logged on/off of the other 8 characters, so their knowledge could be added. They all work fully, including the symbols.

Logging on to character #9 again, he still has no symbols shown on any items. Extended Journal, Character Knowledge displays and tooltips have all characters listed correctly (including correct order and color coding for known/unknown). But no symbols on anything.

What could be the problem here?

Hi there, this is really a great addon.
Would it be possible to have more groups or to be able to set the order of the characters in the same group?
I really have a lot of characters^^

Came here from Loot Log, love the item tooltips showing which other motif pages I am missing, wonderful!
Is there or could there be an option to always only show the highest priority character instead of always including the current character?
Many thanks!

EDIT: As it maybe is just me wishing for this functionality, I quickly changed Tooltips.lua line 26 from
local includedCharIds = { [CharacterKnowledge.charId] = true }
to
local includedCharIds = {}
on my end.

Clearly written and well understandable code

I think I might have found a bug.
Let's say you have guild store opened and you create a motif page reference in the chat.
If you click on the chat link, this addon shows its info in the "popup" window - BUT then if you move over any page on the guild trader, the knowledge info disappears from the first window and shows up on the mouse over instead. The latter part makes sense, but why is it removed from the first one?

Hey! Would it be possible to add an info (for example in a tooltip) of where the selected motif drop and starting when? It would be extremely useful to start farming it and from when.. Thank you!
