The Collector  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v0.7.3
by: SkeeveSM [More]

== Introduction ==
The Collector displays a list of all mounts, companions (minipets), and titles that your character hasn't collected yet. It takes into account factors such as your faction, class, or profession.

== Basic Features ==
* Show missing companions (minipets)
* Show missing mounts
* Show missing titles
* Ignore List
* Tooltip information on where to obtain missing items

== Usage ==
=== Opening the Collector window ===
To open the Collector window open the pet/mount tab (Shift-P) from your Character window and click the Toggle button in the upper right corner. Or you can use the slash command "/tc show". This will open a window that shows what you are missing for that tab. With the window open you can easily switch between tabs to see what you still need to collect.

=== Slash Commands ===
* /thecollector or /tc will display the usage text
* /thecollector show or /tc show will bring up the main window
* /thecollector config or /tc config will bring up the configuration window
* /thecollector reset or /tc reset will center the main window on the screen

=== Ignore List ===
You can add items to an ignore list by right-clicking them and selecting Mark as Inactive. This is useful if for some reason you will never be able to obtain that item and don't want to continue tracking it. Inactive items are placed in a list at the bottom of the missing items. To track an item again, simply right-click it in the Inactive list and select Mark as Active.

== Thanks ==
This addon was largely inspired by AckisRecipeList. If you're looking for a similar addon to tell you what tradeskill/profession recipes you're missing, check it out.

v0.6.5

v0.5
- Stand-alone window now. Open with "/thecollector show" or "/tc show".
- Kludged together a new GUI. Let me know what you think.
- Added section for "Extras". These are items that are difficult/impossible to obtain.

v0.4.6
- Added checks for engineering in mounts and companions.
- "Extra" items are not included in the number of items you know. Example - If you know 2 mounts, and one is the Black Qiraji Battle Tank, then the status bar at the bottom of the mount page will read "1 / XX - YY%", instead of "2 / XX - YY%".
- Code cleanup, small amount of localization.

v0.4.4
- Companions should be almost complete now. Thanks www.warcraftpets.com!

v0.4.2
- Mounts should be almost complete now. Thanks www.warcraftmounts.com!

Thanks for everything!
That's sad to hear. I very much preferred your take on The Collector's interface. But thank you for your work up to this point.

I have no idea if this is possible, but I think it would be pretty cool if this provided some kind of broker feed, or maybe a window/button/thing that would show you which pets you're missing from the whichever current zone you're in. So let's say I'm in Stormwind. The broker button could show "White Kitten: From Lil Timmy" or something similar. I think it would be neat, however maybe not really the goal/design/direction of this addon?

I should have a fix for the first problem in a little while.

The other problem, I'm curious if perhaps you are using some other localization than en-us? If not, try going to the interface folder and totally deleting the Collector folder, and installing again.

Re: Error on Login

Contrary to what I posted earlier (see below), it did make a difference if I deleted the creaturecache.wdb file.

I have since found a slight modification posted by smccndl on the Curse page for this same addon:

Originally posted by smccandl on The Collector @ Curse
I wrote a batch script to delete my NPC and Creature cahce everytime I start WoW. It helps with the addon _NPCScan. Once I did that I get an error everytime I launch WoW that says...

Message: Interface\AddOns\TheCollector\TheCollector.lua:227: attempt to concatenate local 'creatureName' (a nil value)
Time: 11/08/09 09:04:39
Count: 1

Here is the fix. Change line 226 from...

TheCollectorSpecialCompanionTable[spellID] == nil) then

to ...

TheCollectorSpecialCompanionTable[spellID] == nil and creatureName) then

Love the addon by the way! Great job!

{Edit: I use _NPCScan to look for rares. To make it effective, I delete the ..\Cache\WDB\enUS\creaturecache.wdb before running WoW. If I feel like experimenting later, I'll update this post again to indicate if that makes a difference or not.}

I installed this today via MMOUI Minion. Once per login (any character so far, every login), I get the following:
