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:

  • Added an “automatic on/off switch” to enable/disable the addon when the Lunar Festival begins/ends.

  • Removed Cartographer support as the addon has been dead for years.

MogIt Highlighter Updated to Version 1.3

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.

Redprints Updated to Version 1.1

As Seen on MMO Champion!

It’s Christmas Eve, and unless any unforeseen error messages pop up this will be my last addon update for 2014.

Redprints has proven to be a success with over 10,000 downloads during the first week of its release, as well as a frontpage mention on the popular news site MMO Champion!

TradeSkillInfo Updated to Version 2.2.18

I am a bit behind with posting news updates here, but things are calming down now and I hope to get on top of things soon.

Today, I released v2.2.18 of TradeSkillInfo. This version includes a lot of updates to the recipe database and finally fixes a few bugs that I have been tearing my hair out over.

Please note that v2.2.18 will be the final stable update before a database overhaul that I have been planning for months. Unfortunately, this does mean that TradeSkillInfo’s saved settings WILL BE RESET as of r688-alpha and onwards. With Warlords of Draenor officially going live at midnight on November 13th, now is the time to finally put my plans into action.

If you do not want to have your settings reset, then please set your Curse Client installation to download “release” type packages instead of “alpha”. The next big stable release package will be v2.3.0 and is planned for release on November 10th.

I apologise for the inconvenience the reset will most likely cause, but due to the nature of the changes there is no possible way to convert existing settings or provide backwards compatibility.

Broker oQueue Updated to Version 1.2.1

Broker oQueue is back!

In what should be a rather unsurprising turn of events, oQueue has been resurrected and is now working with Patch 6.0.2. As such, Broker oQueue has also been resurrected.

Today’s update to Broker oQueue is only a small maintenance update to mark it as up-to-date with the Warlords of Draenor pre-patch. No new features have been added this time and all existing functionality remains the same as the previous version.

The new update is available for download from Curse and is now also available on Solid ICE! If you have any questions or feedback then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Enjoy!

Official Changelog:
v1.2 to v1.2.1

  • Marked as up-to-date with WoW 6.0.2.
