    New TSM Module Destroying - Need Alpha Testers

    New TSM Module - Need Alpha Testers

    I am a new TSM developer and have been working on a new TSM module called Destroying. It makes prospecting and milling easier. I'm not going to go into too much detail about what it does because I'm interested in what people's first time experiences are like.

    So, if you are interested, download r29 (or higher) of the Destroying module.

    NOTE: This is an early alpha version. There will almost certainly be bugs. What I am looking for is feedback in the following areas:

    * First time experience. How intuitive is the UI? What immediately jumps out at you as something that could be useful? What initially is unclear / confusing?
    * General feature suggestions. Please be specific with these and make them things that are closely related to what's currently implemented.
    * What parts of the module you find most useful. What parts of the module you find least useful.
    * Any other general comments / questions.


    Just post your feedback / comments in this thread.

    Thanks and enjoy!

    Current Updates:


    Milling is reportedly working
    Autoloot bug fixed
    Single Click button added

    Ok did a number of prospects here and a couple things.

    1) Intuitive - yes I can figure out how to prospect with it easy enough, for prospecting I can't figure out what the "Faster Speed (advananced)" option does.

    2) I like that you are trying to get a report of prospected data, but the data showing up on the page does not match the data of what I am getting.

    3) Is there a way to save the data over the same item without closing it? This would let us here get the most accurate prospecting figures
    Also if you are saving prospect/milling data - Save it per ore type please even when hitting prospect all.

    4) I cant keybind the prospect button?

    5) I have to double click prospect it seems once to click prospect and once to use the ore. (I see the tooltip light up on the first click, like it wants me to select the ore)
    Currently I use a macro that is keybound and one click.

    /cast prospecting
    /use elementium ore

    6) Why does it keep turning off my auto loot.

    Posting here before I lose my train of thought.

    - What is the goal of the addon? Is it to track the results of a milling/prospecting session?
    - If so, how will the addon differentiate sessions? Will a logout reset the session?
    - Will/can the addon track the purchase cost of the destroyed materials, and then compare it with the value of the end materials?
    - At first it was not intuitive that I had to double click the prospect button to destroy ores. I understand that the first click casts "prospecting" and that the second targets the ore, similar to the prospecting macro.
    - The module displays prospecting totals, I like how these have tooltips, could they be colored as well?
    - Bug: In faster speed mode, the addon did not always pick up on prospected gems. ie: prospect 3-4 times, but only an Amberjewel was showing under totals. Update: This also happened with normal mode.
    - Could the addon ignore stacks under 5 ores/herbs?
    - Bug: Select "Elementium Ore", hit the prospect button 1-2 times and the ore type goes back to "Destroy All".
    - Is it possible to bind the prospect button to one or more keys?

    I think it's important to first define the goal of the addon. And perhaps explain a little bit how it's supposed to work. Looks promising!

    - Bug: Hitting "milling" caused me to prospect ore. I had no herbs to mill. The character was not a scribe either.

    Also -

    For milling I have a stack of [Dreaming Glory] yet that is not on the list. It seems that the dropdown list just has cata herbs/ores where it could be usefull especially with milling to have every herb.

    I cant figure out how to get milling to work at all.

    You should be able to macro the two buttons.

    /click TSMDestroyingButton1
    /click TSMDestroyingButton2

    1 is the prospect one...2 is the milling one...not sure what would happen if you put both in the same macro...

    I have added the single click option.
    I will start tweaking the Totals portion of the addon. If anyone has any ideas for features that you would find useful let me know.
