In-game Lore Books
#1
I always found it fun to read those little stories they added in the small books scattered throughout Azeroth. I even got an addon called Bookworm that used to store books for later use. Specially did that when I was on a long boring flight.
So, for the past few days, whenever I had a bit of free time I logged in and ran around the world OOCly looking for the various books that you can find in-game.
Eventually I found them all and decided to transcribe them using the GHI addon. If anyone wants to have these, should meet up with me when I log in. Just whisper me when I am online, leave an OOC mail if I'm not or something.
Just Alliance characters for now. But thanks to Theik I will also make it available for the Horde soon. Let me know anyway, no matter what side you're on. xD

Here's a few screenshots:
- The [Dusty Old Crate] that contains three bundles.
- The said bundles: [Bundle of Lore Books (1/3)], [Bundle of Lore Books (2/3)] & [Bundle of Lore Books (3/3)].
- A small [Lore Books Note] that contains a few details.

Cheers! ^^

With some fiddling in your savedvars, it's possible to duplicate an item from alliance to horde.

You happen to know how to do that?

First locate your World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\USERNAME\SavedVariables\Conquest of the Horde\charactername\SavedVariables folder, this is where your items are stored.

Let's say I want to copy my Thorin's muffin to my Orc, Felika.

First I'll open the GHI.lua for Thorin file and locate my muffin in it, which starts with:
["Thorin_41955134"] = {

and ends with
},

at the same height again.

Next I make a bogus item called test on my orc, to generate the proper lua for it.

This looked roughly like this, when I find it in her saved variables:
Code:
    ["Felika_41974303"] = {
        ["stackSize"] = 1,
        ["white2"] = "",
        ["rightClick"] = {
            ["version"] = 1,
        },
        ["comment"] = "",
        ["version"] = 1,
        ["white1"] = "",
        ["name"] = "test",
        ["creater"] = "Felika",
        ["locked"] = 0,
        ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\INV_Misc_QuestionMark",
        ["quality"] = 1,
    },

Now I copy the code for my muffin and paste it into the orc's lua, inbetween the two {}s belonging to the test item.

My dwarves' muffin looks like this:

Code:
    ["Thorin_41955438"] = {
        ["stackSize"] = 100,
        ["white2"] = "",
        ["rightClicktext"] = "Eat.",
        ["rightClick"] = {
            {
                ["Type"] = "buff",
                ["buffName"] = "Stuffed!",
                ["buffIcon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\INV_Misc_Fork&Knife",
                ["buffDuration"] = 1800,
                ["buffDetails"] = "Woah, that hit the spot!",
                ["type_name"] = "Buff",
                ["castOnSelf"] = 1,
                ["details"] = "Stuffed!",
                ["filter"] = "Helpful",
                ["buffType"] = "Physical",
                ["stackable"] = 1,
                ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\Spell_Holy_WordFortitude",
                ["req"] = 1,
            }, -- [1]
            {
                ["type_name"] = "Expression",
                ["Type"] = "expression",
                ["expression_type"] = "Emote",
                ["details"] = "Emote: eats a yummy vanilla muffin. Ooh, fattening!",
                ["text"] = "eats a yummy vanilla muffin. Ooh, fattening!",
                ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\Spell_Shadow_SoothingKiss",
                ["req"] = 1,
            }, -- [2]
            ["requireTarget"] = true,
            ["Type"] = "multible",
            ["version"] = 8,
            ["consumed"] = 1,
        },
        ["quality"] = 2,
        ["name"] = "Vanilla Muffin",
        ["white1"] = "A delicious looking muffin with a strawberry on top.",
        ["version"] = 8,
        ["comment"] = "More whipped cream than muffin, actually.",
        ["locked"] = 0,
        ["copyable"] = 0,
        ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\INV_Misc_Food_149_CupCake",
        ["creater"] = "Thorin",
    },

Chopping off the ["Thorin_41955438"] = { and }, parts leaves me with the essential coding for the item. I copy and paste it inbetween the orc's lua to form this:

Code:
    ["Felika_41974303"] = {
        ["stackSize"] = 100,
        ["white2"] = "",
        ["rightClicktext"] = "Eat.",
        ["rightClick"] = {
            {
                ["Type"] = "buff",
                ["buffName"] = "Stuffed!",
                ["buffIcon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\INV_Misc_Fork&Knife",
                ["buffDuration"] = 1800,
                ["buffDetails"] = "Woah, that hit the spot!",
                ["type_name"] = "Buff",
                ["castOnSelf"] = 1,
                ["details"] = "Stuffed!",
                ["filter"] = "Helpful",
                ["buffType"] = "Physical",
                ["stackable"] = 1,
                ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\Spell_Holy_WordFortitude",
                ["req"] = 1,
            }, -- [1]
            {
                ["type_name"] = "Expression",
                ["Type"] = "expression",
                ["expression_type"] = "Emote",
                ["details"] = "Emote: eats a yummy vanilla muffin. Ooh, fattening!",
                ["text"] = "eats a yummy vanilla muffin. Ooh, fattening!",
                ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\Spell_Shadow_SoothingKiss",
                ["req"] = 1,
            }, -- [2]
            ["requireTarget"] = true,
            ["Type"] = "multible",
            ["version"] = 8,
            ["consumed"] = 1,
        },
        ["quality"] = 2,
        ["name"] = "Vanilla Muffin",
        ["white1"] = "A delicious looking muffin with a strawberry on top.",
        ["version"] = 8,
        ["comment"] = "More whipped cream than muffin, actually.",
        ["locked"] = 0,
        ["copyable"] = 0,
        ["icon"] = "Interface\\Icons\\INV_Misc_Food_149_CupCake",
        ["creater"] = "Thorin",
    },


The result?

The bogus test object I made has been replaced with the muffin, and my orc can now use it or distribute it to other hordies.
(Actually, I copied the cake and not the muffin, but screwit, the idea remains the same. :P)

Maybe you could post the item code for the books here, so everyone can copy it? I'd really appreciate it.

Hey that's not a bad idea at all. I ain't gonna go through all those lines of text though so I'll just upload my GHI.lua and you can pick anything you want from it. (Don't have any other items besides the books and their containers)

Here's the link: GHI.lua
Feel free to create mirrors to other sites if any of you can't use this one. ^^
