About KevTool Queue

Note:

Kevmar, the original author, has kindly allowed me to take over maintenance of KTQ. For WoW 5.3, I have made a few changes:

  • KTQ now works with either Skillet or GnomeWorks Tradeskill Frame.
  • KTQ will now correctly queue enchants.
  • A new shorter command allows fitting more commands into a single macro.

A thousand thank yous to Kevmar for his excellent work in developing this terrific addon!

-Alisonnic

From Kevmar: If you have tried to recreate some of the processes I do in my glyph factory I am sure you have ran into some of the same issues that I have. Building my queue of glyphs to make was one of the most repetitive and time consuming parts of the system. This mod made that step instant for me.

Kev Tool Queue (KTQ) will auto queue items that match a keyword into GnomeWorks Tradeskill Frame or Skillet. You tell it how many you want to have and it will check with Altoholic to see how many you already have. It will then only craft the ones you need. It also has optional support for Auctioneer to check prices and have it skip any item listed too low. You can use any keyword, but it has a few built in.

The beauty of this mod is its simplicity. It does have a few simple features that give it a lot of power. Here is a quick sample of the commands.

Open up your tradeskill window in either Skillet or GnomeWorks and for inscription type this command:

/KTQ QUEUE 2 GLYPH

The syntax is like this:

/KTQ QUEUE [number to queue] [keyword to match]
-or-
/KTQ Q [number to queue] [keyword to match]

For more info:

/KTQ HELP

Queue Details ===

The main command is:

“/KTQ QUEUE [NUMBER] [KEYWORD]“
-or-
“/KTQ Q [NUMBER] [KEYWORD]“

Any item that partially matches that keyword will be added to the queue. I did start with 3 groups of items but later opened it up to any keyword search. The build in groups are GLYPHS, EPICGEMS, RAREGEMS. I know it's silly to have a group called glyphs when the word glyph will work as a keyword and get them all. I already had that group in place before the keyword thing so I left it.

Because it's a keyword match, it does a live check of your craft list. If you don’t know it, it does not try to queue it. If Blizzard adds something new, this should still work and pick up the new thing.

I do have other features built in to target the different ways people make glyphs. It can be set up to craft extra items when you run out. If you have 0 in stock, it can add 2 extra to the queue. It has a threshold feature that will allow it to check your recent Auctioneer scan and only craft items you find to be profitable. This works best with glyphs and gems where the mats for everything is basically a set cost.

It will also skip singles if you want. When I was making 14 at a time by hand, I would often just skip of the ones I needed to craft only one of. I craft them all now that its automated but it was an easy feature to add.

Samples ===

Like any command line mod, you can put commands in macros.

I have a group in place for gems. Several people manage the different colors differently. I would use a macro like this:

/ktq queue 5 solid sky sapphire
/ktq queue 2 forest emerald
/ktq queue 3 monarch topaz
/ktq queue 6 scarlet ruby

A shorter version would look like this:

/ktq q 5 solid sky sapphire
/ktq q 2 forest emerald
/ktq q 3 monarch topaz
/ktq q 6 scarlet ruby

You can do the same thing for other professions. For example:

/ktq queue 20 netherweave bag
/ktq queue 5 frostweave bag

Another feature KTQ provides is adding bonus items for those that sell out. Its a simple feature and here is another way to do that.

/ktq queue 3 glyphs
/ktq queue 14 glyphs

The above will queue up for items that you have less then 3 of and then it will do the same for a stack of 14. So the result is if something sells out, it will queue up 17 of them. If you have 1 it will queue up 15 for you.

Downloads ===

KTQ requires these mods:

KTQ on other sites ===

5.4.0

Updated for WoW client 5.4.

5.3.1

Updated to work with WoW client 5.3.

Eliminated bug that prevented use with Enchanting.

Added option to use "q" instead of "queue" as first parameter to save space in macros.

    Try enabling the Threshold and make sure you have AucAdvanced (Auctioneer)

    /ktq enable threshold
  • #12
    I'm getting the following error (the 211 discussed below). I have uninstalled via Curse my Skillet, LSW, Altaholic, and KTQ. I then reinstalled LSW, Altaholic, and KTQ from Curse and Skillet (R166) from the WoWAce link provided below; I still get the same error.

    Are there other files that I need to manually delete or replace that maybe aren't caught in the Curse uninstall? I looked in the addon folder and it appears that the addon directory has been removed so I would think the answer is no, but I don't know too much about how addons work and where they get their data.

    I appreciate the help, and thanks so much for providing this addon for us (and for the great blog too)!

    Would it be possible to add that feature:

    Only put in queue what i have the mats for in :
    -i inventory
    -b inventory + bank
    -a inventory + bank + alt
    -g inventory + bank + alt + guild bank

    /ktq queue 5 glyph -i would queue up glyphs I can craft based on my current inventory

    If no param are passed, keep the current behavior

    NB: I would have entered a ticket for that but it seems the ticket page isn't active.

    When is a number not a number, when its a string.

    Make sure altoholic is up to date and delete your altoholic and data store saved variables.

    For those who are getting the QueueCommanditerate error you want to update skillet to r166 on wowace the reason you can't update to it if you use the curse client is because the r166 is marked as an alpha version but 1.2.2 is the release. try that and see if it fixes it!
  • #6
    http://www.wowace.com/addons/skillet/repositories/lilsparkys-clone/
    grab this version and it should work for ya. might want to delete the savevar of the old skillet
  • #8
    Thanks for posting that.

    This mod is highly dependant on other mods. When I relseased it, I made sure it worked with the most recent versions of the mods that I could find.

    Make sure that you clear the skillet queue if you had one built before upgrading. It would also be a good idea to delete old altoholic data.
  • #10
    could you please tell us what addons specifically and the releases we need to have in order for this to work correctly? i am an avid reader of your blog and appreciate you making this queue addon, but i am also having the lua error and cannot seem to get it to function. i have deleted and reinstalled all of my skillet, i_stat, and altoholic addons but no luck. thanks again

    I'm also seeing this same error. I'm using Lil Sparky's branch of Skillet, if that makes any difference.

    Sounds like a great idea though i did get an error on it.
