    Description

    The biggest problem with profiles is that you can't really customize them. My RaidStudio profiles are being used by very different people. Some players want to farm rare drops like mounts and just want to sell the rest of the items, other players want to disenchant only epic items, but keep the rare ones, some want to farm cloth and yet others are looking to get transmog gear. Every player has an own agenda. Profiles by themselves are just not customizable enough to fulfill all those different wishes. But since I always want to make my customers happy, I have created a plugin that solves this item issue and in the future is going to expand my products even more. And since I want you all to use it, I'll just put it on the store for free so you can experience those features.

    Features

    • Travel to your destination as fast as possible. The Travel Manager knows what options you have. No more "traveling on rails".
    • Comes with a startup loot configuration depending on your class and professions
    • Allows you to run a number of raids one after the next in your desired order and your desired style
    • Lets you decide for each individual item what you want to do with it
    • Lets you define multiple mail recipients
    • Automatically disenchants items if you want it to
    • Lets you put items on a watch list and notifies you when it drops
    • Displays item tooltips and offers Wowhead links
    • Enables custom options for raids

    Studio Planner

    The "Studio Planner" enables you to chain run Studio60 profile. I hope it is a solid foundation for even more awesome things to come. You just configure the profile you want to run.
    Then you can start the run through the "Start Run" button as seen on the screen or through a profile which will be generated by the Studio Companion. Its location is displayed on the HBRelog tab.

    You can easily stop the run at any time. The plugin will figure out which raids it should still go to when you continue.

    Travel Manager

    Few profiles travel beyond the boundaries of a continent and those that do mostly follow very specific routes. The travel manager gets you where you want to go the fastest way possible by generating a dynamic travel profile specifically tailored for your character. The list of travel options is not complete, but already pretty large with more travel routes to come.

    Travel route example for a character in his garrison heading to the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj

    [​IMG]

    Available Travel Routes

    The list was really getting out of hand and hard to update manually. By now almost every available travel route ingame should have been added. If you find any missing travel routes, please post them in this thread and I will try to add them.

    Take a look at this tool for now: https://www.thebuddyforum.com/honor...40-tool-raid-studio-hbrelog-configurator.html

    It helps you configure HBRelog to work with my profiles.

    I am answering in english, because that's just the forum language. Wouldn't want to piss anyone off. :)

    I have been programming on and off for over 25 years, I have worked in software quality assurance, web development and project management each for a couple of years and I am now in game development, so yes, I am a developer. I just started doing C# stuff around a year ago. I still learn on that front, but that makes it fun.

    I have not ruled anything out when it comes to Honorbuddy development, but I feel that the basic farm stuff already exists. If you feel something is missing, just shoot me a PM and we'll discuss it, also if you know something exists, but could be done better. But I have a full schedule with stuff I need to deliver to you guys. :p

    This whole thing about making things perfect is a personal nightmare. :p

    I have been quiet for a few days and the reason was the traveling situation. Up until now I basically used snippets that made the character find an "okay" way to the destination.

    Former Drawbacks

    • A problem in one snippet would require me to fix it in every single raid profile that used it
    • The route was only good, but not "the best".
    • It was annoying to put together. I constantly kept forgetting forms of travel
    • It was almost impossible to extend, because again I had to adapt all raid profiles.

    The Decision: True distance and time based traveling

    I wanted to do something really awesome. Something where you just throw a map and coordinates on a tool and it plots the fastest route to the destination from wherever you are in the world. Hard thing about this is that you not only need to manually gather data for all portal positions and character skills, you also need to take into account where you come out after the portal, which items a character has, which class he is and how long ships and zeppelins take, how fast you can fly and ride and and and and...

    I am still in the process of gathering data about a few traveling options, but the basic technology works and over 100 means of intercontinental travel have already been implemented. So with the release of this plugin you will get to the dungeon of your choice a lot faster.

    [​IMG]

    This is what it looks like after the Studio Companion has designed a travel route for you. It will dynamically generate an XML file in memory, load it and take you to where you need to go.

    I know, I know... it took forever... not because I am developing so slowly, but rather because I barely have the time to develop for Honorbuddy at all.

    But I put in a good week and I am now looking for beta testers. Beta testers will get access to the plugin and to a profile bundle with raid profiles to be used with this. If any of you have a bit of time available and like to farm raids, then please hit me up via private message with your store user name and I'll set it up.

    Thanks.

    German Reply:
    Bossland hat irgendwas am Store geändert. Ich konnte mich auch nicht einloggen. Ich habe dann in meinem Browser die Cookies gelöscht, bin wieder auf die Seite und es ging. Wie man die Cookies löscht, hängt von deinem Browser ab. Da kann ich keine allgemeine Anleitung geben. Im Zweifelsfall einfach mal den Browser wechseln. Das geht auch. :)

    English translation:
    Estarra1988 is saying that she can't log onto the buddy store. I replied that Bossland changed something about their Store the last two days. People that can't login need to manually delete the cookies for the store, then refresh the page and log in again.

    Hello I had two questions. First do you plan on adding a auto loader into this plugin that lets me select from a list of profiles that I have from you so I can just hit start and let it go. Seconded question this dosnt have to do with your plugin but I bought about $58.93 of your profiles before you offered the package deal of profiles do you offer the package deal at a discounted price for people who pretty much bought all the profiles before hand?

    I will add an "auto loader" within a couple of days since almost everybody seems to want it.

    Regarding the discount:

    I had a private discussion with someone else who was in the same boat as you. He had bought all my profiles I had sold so far and was wondering if there was some kind of special discount. And I am really happy if someone likes my products so much, that he buys them all. But here is the deal:

    From a technical perspective there is simply no way I can know who bought what. We don't get any customer data from Bossland. So if I were to offer a special discount, everybody could just go ahead and tell me he had bought all other products and there was no way of controlling if the story checks out apart maybe from getting all their receipt emails and then matching them with my purchase mails among hundreds I got over the last six months.
    There is also the fact that we can't offer special prices for individual people on the store. The system doesn't allow that. I would have to reduce the price for a moment, let you buy quickly in hopes that no one else buys in that time frame and then revert the price. Not a very pretty or safe solution.

    But if you bought all my raids, you are currently missing:
    Karazhan
    Temple of Ahn'Qiraj
    Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj
    Plus those that I will soon add to the bundle for free:
    Ulduar
    Trial of the Crusader
    Eye of Eternity
    Vault of Archavon

    If you take the prices of those seven products, you would still pay more then the € 29,99 the bundle costs and you were already able to use them for quite some time now. Your bargain might not be as big as that of a new customer, but you are still getting one. The thing with discounts is just that that's how life goes. The phone I am using now costs only half of what it cost, when I bought it. But I am not getting a discount or any money back because of that.

    I hope you understand that this whole deal with special treatment just doesn't work out. From the money you pay on the store about one third lands in my own pocket after Bossland's cut and taxes. If I take two hours to do the whole mail-matchmaking to confirm your claim and I then give you like 50% off, I had two hours of work for € 5 I earned on your purchase. To be honest I would make more money working on other stuff and living with the fact that you don't buy my product. And please don't see this as whining. I am fine with how things are, but I am trying to convey a different perspective. Try and see it from my point of view.
