Updates for sighted players:
This is the Northrend release update. All kind of bugs, errors, etc. are possible. The databases are still in a bad shape. Missing quests, missing start/target/end lists are possible. All routes and waypoints are 100% untested. There are a lot of phasing, vehicle and other quests. Those are untested too. Most graveyards are not linked with routes. Please report every unlinked graveyard.
Please report all issues to the specific channels in discord. If you don’t report them, they won’t be fixed. :)
Caution: Do not install the new addon before the server maintenance is completed (tuesday/wednesday, depending on your region. It won’t work with the current game version.
The chat module now is already using the new chat system from the Wrath version of the Sku addon.
Release notes in German: Diese Veröffentlichungshinweise findest im heruntergeladenen Sku-Ordner in Deutsch. Dateiname: release notes DE.txt
You do need the new script (wow_menu) version 2.12 for this release. You can’t use older scripts with this Sku release. Thus downloading wow_menu r2.12 is mandatory.
New feature: Scan and interact with mouseover for interacting with objects like mailboxes, objects in the game world, fishing, finding corpses and more.
From now on you will use a scan feature and Shift + G for “Interact with mouseover” to find and use objects in the game world. You won’t need the old turning and press numpad 7-9 feature anymore.
How to use it:
First of all: If you haven’t done that yet, go to Core > Game Key binds > Bind Key > Targeting and set up a shortcut for “Interact with mouseover”. (Default is Shift + G, but you can choose any other shortcut of your choice.)
Scanning is automatically turning your camera around you (and thus the mouse pointer) very fast.
While doing that it is constantly checking if the mouse pointer is getting over an object.
if that is the case it instantly stops turning, and thus your mouse pointer will be on the object.
With the mouse pointing on the object you then can press the new shortcut Shift + G (interact with mouse over) to right click on that object.
Shift + G is working like the known shortcut G (interact with target), except it is interacting with the object under your mouse, instead of your current target.
Your character will either directly use the object (if you are in use range), or move to the object and use it then.
The scan stops on the first found object (see below for what objects the different scans are looking for).
You then can either press SHIFT + G to interact with that object, or using SHIFT + L to continue the scan to find another object of that type.
A running scan will be instantly stopped if you do start moving.
The different scans:
There are 8 different scans available. They have different ranges and accuracies and they are scanning for different objects. You will find details on them below this list.
- Scan 1: SHIFT + U, 360 10 fast, herbs, mining nodes
- Scan 2: SHIFT + I, 100 Front, fishing bobber
- Scan 3: SHIFT + O, 360 10 fast, usable objects
- Scan 4: SHIFT + P, 360 10 fast, lootable corpse, skinnable corpse
- Scan 5: CONTROL + SHIFT + U, 360 30 fast, herb, mining nodes
- Scan 6: CONTROL + SHIFT + O, 360 30 fast, usable objects
- Scan 7: CONTROL + SHIFT + P, 360 30 fast, lootable corpse, skinnable corpse
- Scan 8: CONTROL + SHIFT + I, 360 30 accurate, any
Details on the scans:
Each scan (1-8) consists of a specific scan type and a list of objects it is scanning for.
You can assign or adjust any combination of scan type and object(s) to each of those 8 scans. To do that go to Core > Scan settings and to the specific scan (1-8).
There are 5 different scan types to choose from. They differ in scan range, accuracy and speed. - Scan type 1: 100 front - 100 degrees in front of you, 5-45 meters range, takes up to 22 seconds. Used for fishing.
- Scan type 2: 360 10, fast - 360 degrees around you, 0-10 meters, takes up to 10 seconds. Used for usual quick scanning of objects near you.
- Scan type 3: 360 30, fast - 360 degrees around you, 3-30 meters, takes up to 15 seconds. Used for usual quick scanning of objects in up to 30 meters range.
- Scan type 4: 360 10, accurate - 360 degrees degrees around you, 0-10 meters, takes up to 15 seconds. The more accurate version of scan type 2, if you can’t find an object with scan 2.
- Scan type 5: 360 30, accurate - 360 degrees degrees around you, 3-30 meters, takes up 28 seconds. The more accurate version of scan type 3, if you can’t find an object with scan 3.
And there are 12 different object types you can choose to scan for:
- corpse lootable: any corpse that is lootable
- corpse skinnable: any corpse that is skinnable
- corpse not lootable: any corpse that is NOT lootable
- any creature: any creature (mob, npc, player, etc.)
- quest object: any object in the game world that is required for any of your current quests
- herb: any herb for herbalism (only herbs are considered that are set to On under Core > Options > Resource scanning > Herbs)
- vein: any mining node (only mining nodes are considered that are set to On under Core > Options > Resource scanning > Mining nodes)
- bobber: the fishing bobber
- usable object: any object that is usable/clickable (for example a mailbox)
- any object: any object in the game world
- target creature: the creature your are currently targeting (mob, npc, player, etc.)
- any: any object in the game world
Just go to Core > Scan settings and to the scan (1-8) you would like to configure/adjust. Then select a new scan type and/or add/remove object categories, to adjust that scan.
Helpful information on scanning:
Some “objects” don’t count as objects. Examples are mage portals, meeting stones, dungeon portals. To find them, use a scan that is scanning for “any”. (default: scan 8, Control + Shift + I)
Scanning is turning the camera. That is working perfect on flat terrain. It can be problematic if there slopes, in buildings, etc. If a fast scan isn’t detecting an object, just try an accurate scan.
It can also be difficult if objects are covered by other objects (like mobs or players). Or if there are several objects at the same place (like 2 or 3 corpses almost at the same position).
Small objects can be easily overlooked by fast scans. Set up scans to use an “accurate” scan type (4 or 5) to find those objects.
Scanning can fail in some cases. Then the camera is turning slightly to far. If you do a scan, and there is an object, but nothing happens with Shift + G, just retry the scan.
Scanning is finding a mob or object at the position where it is right now. If a mob is moving, then it naturally will move away from the mouse cursor if you don’t press Shift + G as fast as possible on finding it.
If you are continuing a scan, then only the first object of each type will be found, as the addon can’t differentiate between more objects of the same type. This only applies to objects. Not to corpses, mobs, etc.
If you would like to choose a new key binding for a specific scan, go to Core > Sku key binds > Bind key and filter for “scan”.
To change the sound on scanning go to Core > Options > Scan Background Sound
The old alternative “mouse click” key binds for Numpad 7-9 (CONTROL + SHIFT + I/O/P) are not longer working, as they are now assigned to scans.
New feature: Items in the character menu (C) and the bags manu (B) now have an additional submenu “Socketing” to open the socketing panel for that item. The socketing panel will be shown under Local, like all other panels.
Workflow for socketing:
- Pick up the gem that should be placed in some socket from your bag with left click. Then the gem is attached to the cursor.
- Open the character panel or bags, get to the relevant item and choose Socketing.
- Go left to the Local menu level. Get to Local > Socketing.
- Find the intended socket for the gem and do a left click to place the gem at the cursor in that socket.
- Go down to Socket Gems and do a left click to finally socket the new gem.
Moved the All Bags menu entry in the bags menu below the single bags, to provide the option to jump to the single bags with the 1-5 keys. If you would like to get to All Bags with arrowing down, just press the A key, to jump to the first menu entry that starts with A (All Bags).
Key bindings F7-F12 are now as default (for new players or on reset) assigned to the action buttons 7-12 of the left additional action bar instead to the right additional action bar buttons 1-6.
As long as the check is running there is a sound.
The check can only done out of combat. It is automatically stopped if you get in combat during check.
The 50 meters range takes <1 second. The 140 meters range takes 4 seconds.
The addon will voice output all found ressource types.
Caution: Please don’t hold Control durching the check. That will lead to empty results! (The scan is based on the game tooltip, and that is cleared while you hold Control.)
There are new options to control the herb/mineral vein types that the scan is detecting: Core > Options > Ressource Scan
There you can enable all different herb/mineral vein node types. As default all herbs and nodes are enabled.
IMPORTANT: Instead of just on script there are now 3 scripts for different languages and regions. Use the correct script for your region/language: U.S. realms in English: wow-menu_EN_US.ahk EU realms in English: wow-menu_EN_EU.ahk U.S. realms in German: wow-menu_DE_EU.ahk
The localization is completed. The addon is ready to test with language set to “English” (in the Battle.Net client). Please report all missing words and issues!
