About RecipeKnown

Ever have a problem going through a merchant's list of recipes, schematics, or patterns, and trying to quickly figure out which ones you already know and which ones you don't?

Well, fret no more, cause RecipeKnown is here!

RecipeKnown will send out brilliant little Gnomes* with a magic crayonbox, and color all the recipes you already know! It'll even color recipes your alternate characters know!

  • Note: These Gnomes are not intelligent. You must open your tradeskill windows at least once before they'll know what recipes to color!

To access the command-lines, simply type /recipeknown or /rk!

All of my Addons can now be downloaded from one convenient spot!

Current TODO List:

  • Add Mailbox support

  • Add Guild Member/Friend support! Yes, find recipes for your guild members and your friends!

- Lockbox Tooltips will now state the profession/skill the person uses to open the box.

    Does this include minipets/companions?

  • #146

    v0.27 - Tooltips now work with Pets! (No coloring yet.)

    It should work with most pets. I haven't had a chance to update it for 5.0.x. (Money & time issue.)

  • #149

    I hate to say that "I want money to make these addons", since I love working on my addons. But with all the recent changes to WoW, and the way things have been going for the last few expansions, I just simply don't enjoy playing WoW anymore. And money's been tight lately, so I decided to save money by giving up WoW.

    I'm not going to ask to be payed for writing the addons, but I need money for the game time. I have donation buttons and figures listed on my donation page on my GoogleCode site, if you wish to donate money so I can buy game time. Alternatively, you could PM me with the code from a Game-Time card.

  • #147

    I could be wrong and I apologize if I am but it seems like this is more of a money thing for your timee so with that said what would it take to update for 5.x ?

    I really love this mod and I cant go without it especially since I have been MIA for waaaaaay to long and with al the changes in the game I have soooo much more to get now than I did before lol

  • #143

    Well this is the error i am getting sence the new patch but it would seem that there is going to be no updat e so i dont know what to say

    This has been fixed for a while now, so 0.27 should work, unless 5.0.x changed something that's causing this. I just haven't had the money/time to check it out.

    Re: RecipeKnown - Command Not Found

    Typing /rk or /recipieknown yields the msg "Command Not Found".  How do you access the options?  Are there user setable options?

  • #141

    Haven't had a lot of time to work on my addons lately. (No money for game time.)

    From the Readme.txt:

    -=To Do List=-
    - Add a User Interface.
    - Add Command-line options.

    I'm wanting to build those soon, but without game time, I can't test my code changes.

  • #142

    Sorry - I only went by what was shown in the description above ... "To access the command-lines, simply type /recipeknown or /rk!"

    I am currently experiencing some problems with RecipeKnown, I always have a screen freeze when visiting a vendor for about 1 minute or more. Then everything is back to normal again, but when I try to interact with the vendor again, the freeze is back. The vendor is bugged as well, the items he sells don't show up. That bug doesn't seem to come up with all vendors, though. When I deactivate RecipeKnown, the freezes are gone. Does anybody know if this is indeed a problem with RecipeKnown, or could it be in correlation with another addon? It's such a pity I had to disable the addon, it's really useful, especially when visiting the jewelcrafting vendor.

  • #135

    This looks like a nice quality of life addon - not essential, but very useful.


  • #136

    Aww... Thank you!
