Introducing “HandyNotes: Azeroth’s Top Tunes”

Among the new changes made to World of Warcraft in Patch 6.1 was a new jukebox that can change the background music while in your Garrison. Seven of the current total of 31 music scrolls are given to you for free on completion of the jukebox, and the rest must be bought or looted from all over Azeroth.

There are even two achievements for collecting ten and twenty music rolls, with the Azeroth’s Top Twenty Tunes achievement awarding a portable jukebox toy on completion.

This new addon is designed to help music collectors everywhere by adding marker pins to the worldmap and minimap in a similar style to my existing HandyNotes plugins for the Lunar Festival, Summer Festival, and Hallow’s End in-game events.

Redprints Updated to Version 1.1.2

Today’s update to Redprints is a minor maintenance release which fixes a small bug introduced with WoW Patch 6.1.

The [Salvage Yard, Level 1] blueprint was added to the blueprints vendors in this patch but Redprints did not have this blueprint in its database. The blueprint was only obtainable as a reward from the [Flame On] quest in Spires of Arak, but was added to vendors in case the player sold the blueprint by accident.

Version 1.1.2 of Redprints fixes this issue, so the blueprint is coloured in correctly with every other blueprint on sale.

The new version can be downloaded from Curse and will be available on WoWinterface soon. If you have any questions or feedback then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

HandyNotes for Lunar Festival Updated to Version 1.2

The annual Lunar Festival will be starting once again, this time on February 16th rather than the usual early January. In preparation of the event’s arrival, a new version of HandyNotes for Lunar Festival was made available this morning.

This is a fairly major update which includes an “automatic on/off switch” of sorts. The addon is now able to detect when the event has started and will place marker icons on the worldmap and minimap without requiring the user to log out or reload the UI first. Similarly, the addon will also hide the icons automatically after the event has ended.

The way the addon handles Elder NPCs you have already visited has also been overhauled. Blizzard’s IsQuestFlaggedComplete() API has proven to be unsuitable for our needs, so the addon now uses an internal table of completed quests that is updated every time a quest is completed. This new method should fix marker icons remaining on the minimap after you visit an Elder.

These changes should make HandyNotes for Lunar Festival better than ever before, however if you encounter any problems please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The new version of HandyNotes for Lunar Festival is available to download from Curse and requires HandyNotes to work. Remember that the map pins will only appear while the Lunar Festival is active!

The 2015 Lunar Festival will start on February 16th and will end on March 2nd. Good luck!

Official Changelog:
v1.1.5 to v1.2
