Tasks[edit]

A List to remind me what i want to do

  • Propose a concept for NPC categorization by location/city according to this discussion. Be ready to be the one to have to implement it.

Schema Definitions[edit]

Schema definitions follow the data structures gained from the pubic part of the ESO API as close as possible.

Transformations[edit]

NPC Data[edit]

Originally I planned to provide the xslt files i used earlier to transform the xml files into a wikisyntax template. I realised that there would be much confusing explanation how to fill the gaps, when to remove what part, when a certain part would be inappropriate... and so on. So i wrote a small GUI tool to support that transformation and easy filling of the data gaps.

It is still highly beta (missing some "you have forgotten to.." and "you can't do that without..." checks), but used correctly it fulfills its task smoothly. Don't forget to read the README.txt. The software comes of course without any warranty and if you decide to use it, you do it on your own risk. Ah yes, and Java 7 will be required to run it. So if you still want to give it a try: The Nerevarines Tool Set (zip file, ~430 KB).

lua data acquisition (logger)[edit]

I decided for a modular approach, so the core framework handles the general events and has methods usable for all modules, while the modules take care of the data acquisition of their respective type. I have not figured out yet how to separate and dynamically load the modules from different files with that clumsy script "language". so the first module and the core comes together in one lua script:

the xml file[edit]

<GuiXml>
    <Controls>
        <TopLevelControl name="The Nerevarine's Tool Set" hidden="true" movable="true">
            <OnUpdate>
                TNTS.onUpdate()
            </OnUpdate>
        </TopLevelControl>
    </Controls>
</GuiXml>

I admit, i have no clue if that above is really necessary or optimal for an AddOn without GUI elements, but it's what i got from the examples i looked at and it works, so... *shrug*
