I really want to like this...

I've used previous versions of this just fine, but now it's a bit awkward to use. Seems no matter how I fiddle with it, the in-progress crafting area of the window refuses to be resized properly. It results in the crafting reactions be arranged in a sideways L pattern, when I want them to be in a nice, neat line. 123456. Instead, I always get

1234
56

A grab bar between the recipe list and the other half would be ideal, I think.

I've gotten used to just hitting the first key with the mouse then switching to the mousepad but my poor fiance just can't remember to do that, and it would make things easier for me as well!

My main issue is the fact that the recipes are ALWAYS open. They're great to have open while crafting at times, but they take up a huge amount on my screen. Being able to close them with a toggle button would mean I can see guild chat to grats people while I craft XD It would also be nice to choose whether the search is on the left or right of the main window but that might be too bulky or difficult, I can't mod these things so I don't know lol.

Just a side note you might want to update your screenshots for this mod.

There is praise though: this is simply the best TS mod I've seen. It looks great and feels great, and the search helps immensely with rush orders. I add my opinions above, IMO they would make this mod PERFECT. Plus, it has an author that knows what they're doing, listens to feedback, and always updates to make sure the UI is current. Thank you SO much for that!
Yea that flipping button is hard to make work right, I have designed a better version that allows better shrinkage and am working on a slider to close up the recipe list a bit.

If you could tell me what code adds that functionality, I could remove it for my uses. Is it the designation of Stop as a "CancelButton"?

Apart from the SNAFUs that arise from using a TS window different than what you've used for ... how long's it been? 3 years? It's a really nice TS mod. It's great for writs and very convienient for keeping tabs on your supplies. When GU 40 "broke" this UI piece, I kept running out of fuel because I used to absently browse my recipes (showing if I was running low on fuel).

Thank you for the work you've put into this. Thanks for the Guild levels you made easier to obtain. The bill for the crude forged xegonite vanguad spaulders is in the mail.
Thanks for the notes (good and bad) I am still trying to work this thing out. I have a better version done but it has a couple of small problems I need to work out.

Thanks for the response. You're one of the best there is

I tried so hard last night to figure out what is different between yours and the others in regards to the Click in the Box issue but I couldn't figure it out to save my life. When you do finally find the difference would you mind letting me know just to easy my mind on what it was that I was missing?

At any rate, I look forward to any type of changes that you eventually make. I love this mod, fetish version or not.
I took a look at it this morning and I think the differences is in the Create OnVisible command. I have to to add a line there for my mod to keep the recipe window open and I think the Create weindow loses focus thats why the icon buttons dont work. I am testing a work around right now.

Long time user with a couple requests for you to consider if you are so inclined to such feedback:

1. Open / Close toggle for the Recipe screen when crafting. When making a ton of the same item it's not really necessary to have the Recipes always open and a more compact mode would be desirable. An example of this can be found in the ProfitUI Broker window for the Sales screen.

2. Showing the individual status of each combine subpart such as the default or as shown in the following: Pic

3. A FetishClassic skin version? Maybe? Hint, hint

4. Brief Update notes in the Description. Such as:

GU40 V21 (11/21/07)
- Added "Just Press Enter"functionality to the Begin, Stop & Repeat buttons.
- Yadda Yadda Yadda

Lastly, as mentioned below already, the ability to simply use your hotbar is faltered by having to click on one of the skills prior for each combine. This isn't the case with the default so I'm sure it's something that you'll eventually get around to fixing. If this was the only change and the above was ignored I'd be a happy camper. On that note, thanks for fixing the Just Press Enter feature.

Thank you so much for the hard work and effort as it's much appreciated.
Lots of feedback guys. thanks! To reply to this and other recent posts. I am considering making the recipe button open and close the recipes in the future. Right now I am focusing on fixing this darn , must click in the box, problem so we can have mouseless crafting again.

Not to sure if I am gonna make a fetish version, usually complete mods are done by the complete modder.

I can add the old button panel back but it will be a while before I do it.

Anyway. I will work on it some tonight. Keep your eyes open and you should see an update pretty soon.

nice attempt but...

It's a little rough. Needs some work to bring it back to the functionality of the old version. Pressing Enter after finishing a combine needs to active Repeat. And, as someone else has already said, the window's crafting reactions don't work untill you actually click on one with the mouse. Then you can use the keyboard for the rest of the combine. This kinda defeats the whole aim of mouseless crafting, though. I look forward to future updates that correct these shortcomings.

I'm sure you'll get it perfect before long. You always do. : )

Wow don't like SoE's new tradeskill UI

Dunno about anyone else but I love this mod, but would definitely like to see the old buttons back on it. The stop sign is annoying and an eyesore at that. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help this subject. I'll be looking around for some old Trade skilling mods to see if I can nab the buttons and make some adjustments. =P

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Editing this post on account of making my own modifications to this already wonderful mod. =D I was sitting there tradeskilling and i realized if the recipe window is always showing... Why is there a recipe button. So i just deleted that button and slid the repeat button in it's place.

I apologize for my OCDness, not to mention my disdain for change, but if you'd like to see screen shot let me know. and if ya like to add it to the mod/patch whatever downloadables that's cool too. Thanks for the awesome mod tho man. you friggin rock!

Questions

I jsut started using this UI after the release of RoK. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but after completeing one combine and starting another the number keys don't seem to work until after I click them in the window. Also, it would be nice if the enter key worked as a repeat last combine.

perhaps

back again, thanks for the update


Is there a possibility to deactivate the tooltips for the crafting actions?



Feel free to change my mod in any way you want. Just make sure you add my name to the credits. As for removing it altogether, I will have to use it some more and verify its usefulness still.
