My first official project update for 2015, I bring you a new version of MogIt Highlighter.
Version 1.3 is a maintenance release with no new features, but it does include some extra safeguarding against potential UI taint issues. I never received any reports of taint errors but it is better to be safe than sorry.
Remember when I said in my previous post that Chinchilla will work without errors?
Well, it turns out I was wrong and a few errors managed sneak past my eagle eyes. However, thanks to my userbase the errors were discovered and quickly fixed. All known errors are now solved and I can once again turn my attention to overhauling parts of the code.
Two other of my projects also received updates recently, but these were simple compatibility fixes for Patch 5.0.4.
Fixed an error in the Ping module. Thanks to Spiderkeg for reporting it.
Fixed an error in the Location module caused when a SharedMedia font can’t be found.
Removed some redundant code.
Removed pre-5.0 compatibility layer.
Fixed an error with the new LFG minimap button when set to show on mouseover.
Fixed a very silly bug that prevented users from choosing “None” as a border or background.
Removed options for the Battleground minimap button as was merged into the LFG button in Patch 5.0.4.
I am a huge fan of the transmogrification feature added to World of WarCraft in Patch 4.3.0. It offers true customisation of your character, allowing you to choose exactly how you want him or her to appear.
There are a large number of sites and tools to help create some stunning outfits, including the addon “MogIt“. I have used MogIt in recent times to help design some outfits for my own characters but found some of the functionality a little lacking.
Namely, the Wishlist feature.
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing though! I just wanted to do more with it. I wanted to be able to see at a glance if an item was in my MogIt wishlist and snap it up. For instance, my Druid’s transmogrification outfit is comprised mostly of quest reward items. I didn’t want to miss getting the item I wished for, choosing instead something else because it had a higher sell price to a vendor.
Thus, MogIt Highlighter was born.
Here’s how it works.
These gloves are the Nether-Rocket Gloves, a reward from the quest Breaking Down Netherock in the Netherstorm. These are a unique model and fit my transmogrification outfit perfectly. So, I added them to my MogIt Wishlist.
The gloves were the last item I needed to complete my outfit, so I went over to the Netherstorm to complete the quest and obtain the gloves.
I can immediately see that the gloves I wanted are here and I can nab them after I complete the quest. I chose a sparkly visual indicator to distract me from clicking something else and miss the item I wanted so much. Maybe in a future update I’ll add an audio indicator too.
I hope to support more UI elements in future versions of this addon. Possibilities currently include:
The auction house
Personal inventory (bags, bank, etc.)
I hope this addon will be useful to you. It is currently available to download from Curse.
