Recipe Radar  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.403
by: kernighan, ladenedge

Recipe Radar assists players in finding recipes. It knows about vendors who sell recipes in the current region or by profession. It has a number of filtering options and can even locate vendors on the world map.

Classic version available at: https://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info25229-RecipeRadarClassic.html


  • There are two "tabs": the main "radar" tab and one that searches by profession!
  • You can bind a key to Recipe Radar through the main menu!
  • There are lots of filtering options - use the dropdowns to customize Recipe Radar!
  • Some internal maps are inaccurate at this time, it is currently a work in progress to fix these up.

ok, yust tried 1.4 and the bug still exists, so two examples:

standing in Stormwind, I have only teo recipes that are green to me: the two X-mas recipes.
so having all three filters (available, unavailable, known) aktive shows me the correct list.
But disableing 'available' doesn't hide the two recipes and disableing known hides all.
Also if I click on the X-mas recipe to have the vendor shown on the map and than hover over him it sais "2 recipes (0 usable)". So it looks like it does asign the correct color but not the correct categorie for filtering.
Same holds for eg engeneering. Correct colors for the skill levels but filters don't work: known filters all, the others don't work.

some suggestions:
- could you add a filter for unlearnable professions to the three in place and color their recipes different from known? (color them eg yellow)
- maybe you should only cache missing tooltips on click instead of mouse over
- when an item is unknown, you show a tooltip telling so. why not show it's tooltip in that place if it's known, too?

Something wrt 1.4's deDE loc:
Why did you only partial take over my localization? Mainly wrt the encoding of the Umlaute (having \195\164 instead of since WoW uses UTF-8 encoding)? I would be glad if you could insert the deDE loc as posted below and apply these fixes:
RecipeRadar_Strings["Warning: if your server has"] = "Warnung: wenn der Server dieses"
RecipeRadar_Strings["Unmap Vendor"] = "H\195\164ndler entfernen"
RecipeRadar_Strings["Roving"] = "wandernder"
RecipeRadar_Strings["Seasonal"] = "saisonaler"

/dit: for some reason the Umlaute seem to work without encoding them... maybe blizzard 'fixed' that finaly (or my editor that also converts them...) anyways there are still some changed strings in the localization I posted earlier that fit better than those currently in place

Wow, thank you very much, Elkano. I've integrated your translation into v1.4. As for your filtering bug, it *may* be fixed in v1.4, but I'm not sure I was able to address your particular problem. Can you provide any further info if the bug persists in the new version? Specifically, things like: which profession, which recipes, which filters, etc. Any patterns you can see would also be helpful.

Hopefully it's fixed, though, heh.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

RecipeRadar_Strings["Vendor-Tron 1000"] = "Kaufotron 1000"


I didn't change location or vendor names (exept that I fixed the 'Umlaute') but the rest should be better than before

But I also got a bug report wrt filtering: It looks like there are some problems wrt filtering known, available and unavailable recipes. The required skill level is colored correctly but the filters don't work as they should. eg turning of 'known' also hides those that could be learned for me :/
I didn't check the code on that, yet but I hpe you can fix it (takes some time to get through new code ^^' )

Thank you for the kind words!

The addon currently "works" (with a couple bugs, it turns out) with deDE locales, and I'm hoping to have a working frFR locale in the next version (and no more bugs, I hope).

[Edit] FWIW, as of v1.2, both deDE and frFR locales are now supported. Of course, my translations are really, really bad.. but it's a start.
