EPGPLootmaster

Master looter GUI - 0.3.5-beta

EPGP Lootmaster

EPGP Lootmaster provides a nice GUI for distributing loot and GP to the raid. It sends a popup and a message to all raid members with the question wether they want the loot or not and sends this response to the master looter. The ML gets a nice list of every raider's choices sorted by EP/GP (more info on EPGP here). <center></center>

Translators wanted!

<font color="red">We're currently looking for translators, please visit curseforge if you're interested in helping out.</font>

Whisper system

This mod nolonger requires everyone in your raid to install it! Raid members can now just whisper the master looter with a simple message: /w masterlooter !epgp need/greed/pass [itemlink] This, however, will not send the current equipment to the master looter ui. It's still strongly suggested that everyone installs the mod, but it's nolonger mandatory. The master looter, of course, still needs to install it ;)

Installation

Just copy the epgp_lootmaster and epgp_lootmaster_ml directories from the zipfile to your addons directory or use the Curse Installer. When you configure your addons in wow you'll get two entries:
  • EPGP LootMaster - Core: Everyone in raid needs to enable this.
  • EPGP LootMaster - ML: Only Master Looter needs to enable this, most raiders will probably get dependency missing because EPGP isn't installed. This is no problem, just leave it disabled. The Master Looter however does need to install EPGP.

Config

/lm options for some basic options.
  • Auto announce threshold: sets what kind of item raid members automatically get to see.
  • Auto looter: sets a raid members that will automatically receive BoE and BoU items below the threshold (for disenchantment or bank).
  • Listen for incoming monitor updates: Enabling this will make your client listen from updates from the master looter. It will show you the exact same interface as the master looter. This way you could help deciding who gets the loot.

Use

Just install this mod on every raid member. Set someone up a master looter. As soon as the ML tries to loot something, epgp_lootmaster will detect it and will try to handle the distribution for you. epgp_lootmaster will also handle the GP distribution for you and should automatically disable the EPGP GP input popup. You can also manually disable this popup from the EPGP options panel. /lm version or /lm versioncheck This will show you an interface where you can see wether the members of your guild or raid have installed lootmaster and what version.

Additional functions

While it's not something that's endorsed by the EPGP system, EPGPLootmaster does have built in Voting and Bidding systems. You can configure these systems easily from the configuration panel (/lm config).

Bidding system

The bidding system allows players to place a custom GP bid for an item. The highest bidder wins the item. This works either by inputting your bid on the need/greed/pass selection popup, or by using the whisper system: /w masterlooter !epgp need [itemlink] [bid]

Voting system

The voting system allows the master looter to request help from the loot council to select a proper candidate for an item. This has been implemented because some guild want to use PR for the majority of their loot but sometimes they want to bypass and select a candidate manually, by placing votes. The configuration panel allows you to define who are the members of your loot council: either the assistants in your raid or a selection of ranks in your guild or both or everyone in your raid. You can configure as you see fit.

    WONDERFUL NEWS there mac!

    We look forward to have an alpha version to test to give you feedback, we are still raiding daily so we can test it in real situations with real loot in raid25 and raid10.

    Also, check my comments on the specific tickets, I've added a few suggestion on how it should work IMHO. Thanks mate and keep up informed on the progresses!

    Can't wait to see the release ;-)

    I have started working on this, currently the #votes column has been added, the addon communication layers have been altered and i'm currently working on the configuration panel. So, things are progressing quite rapidly. Hopefully i will be able to release an alpha this week or upcoming weekend. Thank for your offer for an assist, but i don't think i will be needing any coding help for now. Ofc, testing is always welcome! We'll surely have this implemented before cata release ;)

    Any news mackatack? Did you get any chance to work on it on the weekend?

    We are looking forward to have a first alpha version so we can maybe help with the testing & give you suggestions/hints to improve/fix things.

    We need the voting system in place for Cataclysm so we really are looking forward to it. If you don't have time for the coding and/or need some help call out and me and Kimbra can maybe help out a bit (Kimbra is a skilled LUA developer, and I'm a senior java/c/.net/php developer, I think I can adjust to LUA quite easily).

    Thanks for everything and keep up the wonderful work!

    Heya m8,

    To be honest, it's been ages since i have been able to talk to Alkis (EPGP maintainer). After my long period of not maintaining EPGPLootmaster at all, i guess he didn't see a future for the merge anymore. In my opinion, merging of these two addons could've been nice, but the current situation works for now. I'd rather spend my few hours of available free time by playing wow and adding new features to EPGPLootmaster, rather than having to rewrite and rethink the whole thing from scratch (as we planned for the merge). Having that said, i might work on rewriting the complete addon, preparing for a possible merge any time in the future. Again, it's on low prio for me.

    Hi mate. Just been looking at recent googlecode commits for EPGP and noted that LM files have been binned. Wondered if that means the planned merger of these 2 mods was no longer on the cards? This makes me emo!

  • Avatar of mackatack mackatack Oct 22, 2010 at 08:48 UTC - 0 likes

    This can surely be done, i will start on all the open tickets in the weekend. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Thanks for this wonderful addon!

    We are actively using this addon since 2 years ago and are very happy.

    With cataclysm, we are trying to move from a pure EPGP system as it is right now, on a EPGP/lootcouncil hybrid.

    We would like to choose the guild ranks who make up the Loot Council, and the LM should be able to assign the loot by priority or call for a votation among the Loot Council Members.

    This IMHO will improve the system by a lot, by giving the most important loots (tier, etc..) not by priority, but using a more 'usefulness' metric in the raid (Main Tanks first, etc..), with this new voting system.

    Do you think it can be done? I've posted some suggestions in the tickets as well, detailing how I would like to see this addon :-)

Do you like EPGPLootmaster? (If you have comments, pls add one :P)
