LoreBooks

LoreBooks

This addon displays map pins for Shalidor's Library books.

In-game setting is in the SETTINGS -> Addons Settings -> LoreBooks menu. You can choose what icons you want to use, select if addon should display allready collected books and much more. Please try it yourself and let me know your thoughts. All ideas how to improve this addon are welcome.

Right now it includes over 1800 locations of lorebooks and with every update will be this number higher. If you find lorebook which is not listed in addon, please write me its location, so I can update database.

Help wanted

I didn't check all lorebook locations in-game, so if you find any missing map pin or pin on the wrong spot, please report it as a bug on my EsoUI portal:

http://www.esoui.com/portal.php?&uid=524

How to report:

Switch to "Bug", select "LoreBooks" interface, enter any title and to the description write which pin is on wrong spot and its correct position on the map.

All books at once:

To the chat type /lbreport. It will show report that contains new lorebook locations you have found on all your characters. Copy its text to clipbboard (just press COPY button) and paste it to bug report on my portal.

One by one:

If you want to get lorebook location, move as close as possible to that book and type /myloc. This command reports current location of your character to chat.
Example:

"Auridon: 34.92,11.51 (auridon/auridon_base)"


If you have enabled icons for collected books, right after you read a book a new map pin will appear at your location. So if you do not remember book name, it is on the pin tooltip.
Example:

"          Auridon Lore           "
"Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant"

So the bug report will be:
Add "Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant" to Auridon 34.92,11.51.
or
Name for Auridon 34.92,11.51 is not correct, it should be "Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant"


Lorebooks data are collected from:

This addon uses the following libraries:


TODO:

  • Add location of remaining lorebooks
  • Improve icon textures
  • Add link between lore library and map pins
