Prospect Me is a simple and lightweight addon that gathers and stores the statistical results of a user's prospecting and milling results and displays that info inside a tooltip. The addon is designed to complement the use of addons like Tekkub's Panda although it is fully functional on it's own. Prospect Me uses ItemID's to gather, store, and display results and so should be functional with any localization.
Most importantly - if a player has an auction addon installed (Auctionator, Auctioneer, etc - adding more soon!), Prospect Me will gather item values and display the current prospect/mill cost and expected average return. Prospect/Milling cost is determined by Orb/Herb cost per unit x5; Average Return is determined by aggregating the % chance of receiving any particular result and the current value of those items.
Of note: Prospect Me does NOT use a database (like Wowhead) to project results - it is based on your individual returns. I did this because to me, it's more interesting to see what my results were rather than a hypothetical. Because of this you will need to use prospecting or milling on an item before you see any results!
The 2.0 "Wishlist":
Add Database Browser
Create Prospect Button
Add User Configurable values
Add Disenchant support?!?!
New - Reset the Database! Prospect Me now supports the ability to reset your results database without having to mess with your saved variables. Use "/pm reset" to reset the database or access it from the configuration GUI.
New - Per Session Statistics Prospect me will display per-session statistics when you hold the alt key. Per-session statistics are reset when you log out.
Updated the Add On for World of Warcraft client v5.0.4
Version 1.0, woooot!
Fixed - Updated Toc to interface version 4.3
New - Configuration settings! Prospect Me will now let you configure what sort of detailed information is displayed in the tooltip. Open blizzards addon frame for a GUI or use /prospectme to configure.
New - Localization support. Just English for now, but if anyone wishes to contribute localization, the variables are available - see localization.lua in the Prospect Me folder.
Improved - Condensed the default tooltip to make it more space efficient.
Improved - Prospect me now shows you the estimated profit from milling/prospecting (Thanks KippG for the suggestion and code!)
Long overdue maintenance release for client version 4.2: no longer "out of date" yay!
Fixed - Prospect Me should now work properly with Enchantrix and any other addon that hooks the secure function "SpellTargetItem"
Fixed - Prospect Me should no longer spew any errors if your auction database is LoadOnDemand and not currently loaded.
Improved - Cleaned up and commented some more of my code.
Improved - Prospect Me now has improved handling of some auction addons and will automagically support any auction addon now or in the future that uses Tekkub's standardized GetAuctionBuyout(); this is in addition to the auction addons already supported.
Fixed - fixed a bug with AuctionLite; AuctionLite's database should now be read correctly.
Fixed - Prospect Me should no longer care about case-sensitivity in macros and will now treat "/cast prospecting" the same as "/cast Prospecting" the same as "/cast PrOSPectINg", etc.
New - Prospect Me will now identify an item class and display the proper skill text in the tooltip: "Times Milled" vs "Times Prospected", etc
Improved - For items that have <10% chance of being prospected/milled, Prospect Me now displays the % rounded to one decimal place: "4.3%" vs "4%".
Improved - some minor improvements to code readability and optimizations.
Note - The change to % display has no effect on "Average Return" since that number has always been calculated without rounding!
First Beta release of Prospect Me. Everything seems to be pretty stable - please report any odd behavior!
