Wow-Pro Professions Addon Module – PROPOSAL


So … I found WoW Pro a bit late to be really useful for the push to get it ready for Cataclysm, but I like to code and in WoW I’m really all about the professions.

I’ve had an idea to build an add-on for the professions, based heavily on the WoW-Core and WoW-Leveling modules so have come up with the following proposal.  Please comment on it, tell me if you think it’s workable … or a terrible idea 🙂 Any comments you can make will only improve the final product!

And to the current developers … if you’re already working on this, and would rather I not muddy the waters please let me know.  In which case I hope what I’ve put here helps you along the path to development … otherwise LOOK OUT LUA, HERE COMES DUNEDON!

 *** SORRY for the formatting below, I could not get this to format in a nice manner no matter how I tried … sigh.

WoW-Pro Profession Guide Addon

    I use Advanced Trade SkillI use Advanced Trade Skill Window, it has the ability to queue projects.

    I also happen to find this macro

    /run CloseTradeSkill()
    /cast First Aid
    /run local s for i=1,GetNumTradeSkills() do s=GetTradeSkillInfo(i) if (s==”Linen Bandage”) then DoTradeSkill(i, 100) end end

    Replace First Aid with whatever profession, Linen Bandage with whatever item, and 100 with whatever quantity. Keep it at 100 to do as much as possible.

    Keybindable button to makeKeybindable button to make your character craft the specified item! Dunno if it’s possible to queue up a certain number to be crafted as well, I know nothing about profession API.

    I really like that separateI really like that separate people are all taking on new modules – I know I don’t want to do it all! This way we have one person “in charge” of each module, though of course many people contribute to both the code and content for those modules.
