1.34 Changes:
  • Added itemname() to match items by name. Returns true if the item name contains any of the provided strings (case insensitive), e.g. itemname("Maelstrom", "Alkosh")

1.33 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Murkmire.

1.32 Changes:
  • More huge performance improvements! Thanks again to Shadowfen who did all the work here. (Pre-compile rules as they are changed)
  • Replaced Set Tracker support function GetSetTrackerState() with IsTracked(). If you used the old function, you will need to update your rule (sorry). This was done to bring the usage inline with the way the other similar functions work. Usage, e.g.: IsTracked("Sell/Decon", "Collecting")

1.31 Changes:
  • Big performance increase (2x or better for me), thank you to Shadowfen for the code change suggestion!
  • Updated libraries

1.30 Changes:
  • Added French translation. Big thanks to Hasgaad!

1.29 Changes:
  • HOTFIX - resolve errors at merchant due to Wolfhunter API changes.

1.28 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Wolfhunter.

1.27 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Summerset.
  • Added support for jewelry crafting ingredients. Note: you will need to either create a new rule yourself, or reset AutoCategory to default settings to grab the new default rule.
    • To create your own rule, use
      Lua Code:
      1. filtertype("jewelrycrafting")
    • To reset to default settings: In the Auto Category add-on menu, use the Defaults button. Then use the /reloadui command. Important: this will remove any custom rules/settings you have defined.
  • New API function "IsMarkedIS()" - use to test whether an item is marked with Item Saver. Note that FCO ItemSaver users should continue to use "IsMarked()"

1.26 Changes:
  • New API function "islocked()" - use to test whether an item has been locked.

1.24 Changes:
  • Resolve circular dependency issue with DoItAll (requires matching update to DoItAll).


1.23 Changes:
  • Added Set Tracker support! Use "getsettrackerstate()" to retrieve the name of the Set Tracker category, if an item is tracked.
  • Added charlevel() and charcp() to pull current character level and CP. Can be used to compare item level to your character level with a custom rule. (Thanks to VulcanTourist)

1.22 Changes:
  • You can now define separate settings for your home storage chests (they will take their initial settings from your bank settings, but can be customized at will).

1.21 Changes:
  • Added support for home storage chests (big thanks to raj72616a). Currently, they will use the settings selected for your bank (no custom settings for home chests yet).
  • Bumped API version for Dragon Bones.
  • New maintainer (crafty35a).


1.19 Changes:
  • Fixed Localization.
  • New Feature: Collapsed/Expanded status can be saved now. You can turn it on in the general setting menu.

  • Fixed Bug: Quest Panel will not complain about lua error.

  • New Feature: Items Count. You can get a total number about how many items inside the category. This can be turned off in the general setting menu.
  • Account Wide setting changed: You can switch account wide/character wide for each of your characters. (* Need to select again if you use character setting before, don't affect the bag settings)
  • Fixed bug: Removed duplicated rules in bag setting.
  • Fixed bug: German set names should be able to be matched now.
  • Changed api:keepresearch()
    After a lot of tests, the api is not working fine. So I decided to make the api work more simple: It will match all the items can be researched. If you want better result, please use it with other api together. This is a basic idea to filter the item that is not part of a set and can be researched:
    Lua Code:
    1. keepresearch() and not isset()
  • New api:isset() api:ismonsterset()

1.15 Changes:

Since you updated yesterday, and this addon (AutoCategory version 1.37) has not updated in months, it is likely that you updated to "AutoCategory - Revised" - whose saved variables were no longer compatible with the older AutoCategory since AutoCategory - Revised went to version 2.0 when Elsweyr came out.

In the change log for version 2.0 of AutoCategory - Revised, is noted the following Breaking Change:
"The SavedVariables for version 2.0 have changed formats from 1.37 in order to support multiple servers and character name changing. This means that 2.0 will not be able to read in your 1.37 category definitions. I recommend that you move your live\SavedVariables\AutoCategory.lua somewhere else (or print it) so that you can refer to your old rules to enter them back into the new AutoCategory."
The changing to incompatible saved vars is not a bug in this case; and is not a common occurrence - this time it was caused by a change that Zenimax introduced.

Yes it is a good idea to save the .lua from the SavedVariables folder someplace safe just in case because they can be copied back into the SavedVariables folder, if they accidentally disappear. If, on the other hand, the saved variables file simply "stops working" with no changes after an update then it is possible that your backup file will also not work.


Oh thank you so much for your response. Amazing how fast !

Let me please correct something. Yes, indeed I am using the revised, and have always used it. Thats because when I started playing, not long ago, it was already published.

So considering it is within the other version, can i presume correctly there is no "compatability" issue? Which leads to the next question, should I post over there instead of here?

Much much appreciated !

At your own risk, but the missing jewelry traits can be added in the file AutoCategory\AutoCategory_RuleFunc.lua

Just replace the existing block
Code:
	
        ["jewelry_arcane"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_ARCANE,
	["jewelry_healthy"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_HEALTHY,
	["jewelry_robust"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_ROBUST,
with
Code:
	
        ["jewelry_arcane"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_ARCANE,
	["jewelry_bloodthirsty"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_BLOODTHIRSTY,
	["jewelry_harmony"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_HARMONY,
	["jewelry_healthy"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_HEALTHY,
	["jewelry_infused"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_INFUSED,
	["jewelry_intricate"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_INTRICATE,
	["jewelry_ornate"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_ORNATE,
	["jewelry_protective"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_PROTECTIVE,
	["jewelry_robust"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_ROBUST,
	["jewelry_swift"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_SWIFT,
	["jewelry_triune"] = ITEM_TRAIT_TYPE_JEWELRY_TRIUNE,

Alpha Gear Integration

So... does this work "out of the box" with Alpha Gear, or do I have to create a custom rule (or rules). I am not certain I fully understand that part...

Even without AG integration, I absolutely love this add on!

Love the add-on! The possibilities are nearly endless (as soon as one starts to learn the language for the category coding xD).

One thing I noticed, though... I've added FCOIS dynamic sets to remember which character I'm saving a piece as research material for. But if I make a "research" category and include not only those marked for research but also those marked with those particular dynamic symbols, the category changes name from just what I've named it to to include the dynamic names (or at least some of them) in brackets x_x which is kind of... not what I had in mind xD (I ended up doing separate categories for the bank, one for each dynamic and one for "unspecified" items to avoid it, but the issue is still there in the backpack)

Is that a "missing setting" in your add-on, or something that would need to change on the FCOIS side of things? Or am I just blind and not seeing something that's already there?

Screenshot:


On the left is how it looks with the combined category, and on the right how I had to separated it in the bank. The stuff in brackets are the dynamic set names that were added automatically, not anything I added to the category name. (Character names censored for privacy :p Technically I could have renamed the dynamics for screenshot purposes, but I didn't think of it until way later.)

Adding to that thought, how about being able to sort writs by "clothing" "blacksmithing" "woodworking" etc.?

I would have a suggestion about the default categories.
Adding the separate category for stolen "treasure" items, next to just general "stolen" category would make definitely easier to fence them and launder. Stolen weapons, recipes and furniture already are separated.

Configuration isn't working?

My configuration now looks like this, and there's no option in the controls for setting the hot key. I'm guessing there's a library conflict, but I haven't nailed down what addon is doing it.

I'm also not sure how long it has been like this, as the main functionality in inventory screens is working correctly.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

FCOIS and Lakoni's gear changer are other inventory or gear-related addons that this addon can work with if you have them installed. You do not have to install them though. And if you don't have them, you can set the priority for rules about them to zero because you don't care. :-)

Selling is probably ornate items, perhaps also trash and collectable monster trophies (which you can't do anything with but sell), but I'm not sure because I modified my selling category to include a few extra things from the default definition.
Any idea why all my sets are not showing up anymore in the bank? I changed the "sets" category in the bank section to 90 but now I don't see any set items at all.

*edit* nm. I guess the hide category option got selected on accident.

(I assume they have but not sure).
This addon (and Auto Category - Wrathstone, which is the newer version) can organize sets - if you set the configuration correctly for that. You need to look at the category priorities for the Backpack and move the Set category up in priority until it displays as you want. For instance I have New, BOP-Tradable, Selling, Deconstruction, and Monster ahead of Sets. so that all of the Monster helms and shoulders are grouped together and then other sets are grouped individually by set.

The thing that you need to remember is that items in your inventory can qualify for multiple categories, but they are always put in the first category from the list that they fit in. So changing category priorities can change where items get sorted into.

Does it automatically place items of the same set together even when they are not named the same?

I think this would be easier if I could see my inventory in real time while tinkering with these settings.

*edit* I just tried changing the "sets" category to 90 in the bank section and now I can't see any of my set pieces in the bank. I have clearly broken my bank.
