Description:Automatically sends specified items to specific bags, when you recieve / loot items. There are 2 main Sorting lists that determine how items should be organized. The 1st is Account specific, nothing worse than having to setup ALL the same sorting settings for an alt. The 2nd is Character specific, that takes priority over the Account specific settings. Both lists start blank, and are completley configurable.
Neat Freak does NOT ReSort the items currently in your bags.
About:Neat Freak got started because I wanted a way to keep my bags organized when questing/grinding. Pre BC I had an addon that did this (Auto-Bag), but when I returned to WoW (2 years later), the addon was no longer being maintained (I have since found a maintained version of it, but as of this update it is not 3.1 compatable). So after several months of complaining to myself about having to always manually move items to the bags I wanted them in, I decided to create my first addon.
In doing my initial research in how to create an addon the auto opening/closing of bags looked like it would be EASY to do (and learn from), and the addon I was using at the time (DocsLazyBags) that auto opened/closed bags had a few minor issues for me. I also wanted an addon that did not have other dependancies, like ACE.
My To-Do List:* Option to fill bag from bottom.
* Exceptions, I like this idea....
* Add a 2nd bag field.
If there is something you think I missed, or should do/add, or you find an issue I have not, please let me know.
Slash commands:/neatfreak -> Opens the Neat Freak Interface.
/nf -> Opens the Neat Freak Interface.
/neatfreak sort (bag#) -> valid bag#'s: all, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
/neatfreak findwindow -> Relocates the Interface window (x=50, y=-50) if it got off screen somehow. [added in 0.10b]
Remove Item from List:With the interface open, click the sorting entry to remove. The interface should populate w/ the Name, icon, destination bag #, and destination slot # (if supplied), and the approperiate "Level" radio button will become selected. Click the "Remove" button.
If the Entry was a Character Level sorting entry, AND there was also an Account Level sort setup (and you did NOT change the radio button), the Account Level Sorting will now be listed. If you wish to remove the Account Level sorting as well repeat the process once more.
When Adding:* To specify a slot range the format is "3-6", "10-11", "8-12", etc. No spaces!
* A wildcard character (*) can be used when adding an entry by Name (at the begining or end).
* The "Account Level" radio button is selected by default (when Neat Freak first loads), when adding a Sort entry, this will setup the entry to apply to ALL characters on the account.
* Select the "Character Level" radio button if you only want this sorting for this character, or if you want to use this sorting (for this character) instead of the Account Level sorting that will still be used for all your other characters.
Add Entry to List (By Name):With the interface open (slash command or click the minimap button) select the "By Name" radio button. Type in the name of the Item <s>(case sensitive)</s> to be sorted, or drag and drop the Item onto the Icon place holder, or ALT click the item. Select the Bag # (0 is BackPack) and Slot # (optional)(starts at 1 in the upper left most slot). Click the "Add / Update" button.
Add Entry to List (By Rarity) [Color]:Grey item (same for Green, White, etc).
With the interface open (slash command or click the minimap button) select the "By Rarity" radio button. Type in the Number of the Rarity (0=Grey, 1=White, 2=Green, etc) to be sorted, or drag and drop an Item of the Rarity to be sorted onto the Icon place holder, or ALT click an item. Select the Bag # (0 is BackPack) and Slot # (starts at 1 in the upper left most slot) (optional. Kind of useless for Rarity, so I leave it blank). Click the "Add / Update" button.
* If you setup a Green (usually BOE [Bind On Equip]) or higher (usually BOP [Bind On Pickup]) Rarity sorting you can have problems w/ Neat Freak moving any additional equipment (2nd set of armor, etc) you may be carrying as well. To help stop this there is a setting on the Options tab you should set. There is a "Skip Soulbound Items" check box that you can check and then ONLY items that are NOT Soulbound will get sorted.
Add Entry to List (By Type):With the interface open (slash command or click the minimap button) select the "By Type" radio button. Type in the Type and SubType of the Items to be sorted <s>(case sensitive)</s> seperated by a [space] [dash] [space] (ie "Trade Goods - Cloth", or "Quest - Quest"), or drag and drop an item of the Type to be sorted onto the icon place holder, or ALT click an item. Select the Bag # (0 is BackPack) and Slot # (starts at 1 in the upper left most slot) (optional. Kind of useless for Type, so I leave it blank). Click the "Add / Update" button.
Explanation:So if I setup "Copper Ore" at "Account Level" to be Bag 3 Slot 8 for character Delilaha, when character Delich logs in she will also have Copper Ore going to the same bag/slot location.
But Delich uses Copper Ore for her Engineering profession, so instead of AHing the Ore (for me Bag 3), she wants the Ore to go to Bag 1 (my 'Keeper' bag). So I can either drag Ore to the Icon place holder, or now click on the Copper Ore entry in the List, enter Bag 1 and clear the Slot number (because I don't care what slot the ore ends up in), choose the "Character Level" radio button and then click the "Add/Update" button. Now the entry Copper Ore is updated and a check mark is next to the location in the list.
Now Deliger logs in and when I open the Neat Freak interface Copper Ore is there (without a check mark) and set to be sorted to Bag 3 Slot 8.
Misc Info:The Options page, with the Tool Tips, should be self explanitory, so I will not go into it.
The About page is basically the start of this Description, and a list of the Slash Commands.
