    Sparks to Gil conversion

    What are the most efficient options (in time and sparks) when converting sparks to gil?

    Choose the biggest one to NPC, as most are roughly 10g/1 spark. Acheron shield isn't a bad choice. Bahadur if you don't wanna scroll through too many pages.

    Here:

    Code:
    require 'pack'
    require 'lists'
    
    windower.register_event('outgoing chunk',function(id,org)
        if id == 0x5B then
            local name = (windower.ffxi.get_mob_by_id(org:unpack('I',5)) or {}).name
            if L{'Eternal Flame','Rolandienne','Isakoth','Fhelm Jobeizat'}:contains(name) then
                local outstr = org:sub(1,8)
                local choice = org:unpack('I',9)
                if choice == 0 or choice == 0x40000000 then
                    return outstr..string.char(9,0,0x29,0)..org:sub(13) -- Archeron Shield
                end
            end
        end
    end)
    Load it and then just enter and exit the menu (can use escape or the leave menu option at the bottom). It'll automatically buy Acheron Shields.

    Heads up: you misspelled Acheron Shield in that script.

    Not that it matters since that's just a comment and not a part of the code.

    Save it as an addon in addons/whatever/whatever.lua

    copy and paste it into notepad. Go to save as.. change file type to all files name it ending in .lua. For example, sparks.lua

    go to you addons folder. Create a folder named sparks, put the file in. in game type //lua load sparks

    This should be easily changeable to bring stuff like Darksteel Bucklers also, to save hours of navigating menus for PIs for Escha pops.

    However, could someone give me some hints on how to edit it? i.e. what are the elements which would need to be changed, and how does one know which values to change them to?

    If you want to buy other items you can use this addon
    https://github.com/smd111/Sparks

    Load the addon as normal (lua load Sparks) then you can buy items in the console like so:

    Code:
    sparks buy Acheron Shield
    Just make sure you are standing close to the sparks NPC

    So random question, is it possible to create an addon that would buy Voiddust from a Voidwatch Purveyor similar to how it can be used to buy shields?

    Yeah, I was never very god at git, rewrote this a few time to tidy up code as this was my first Lua attempt and used a friends gitlab as it was a little easier, then his serve died and I lost the lot, had no idea anyone even had this, I've taken a copy of it again as I lost it on his server poof! Haha. I left the game a while and came back just and glad to find it.

    Thanks for filling in missing items, I tried to make the menu map easy enough to expand (I started with big ideas lol!!)

    As for void dust, it wouldn't be hard, you just need the id's for the npc's that deal in it, menu Id and option id for the item, it simulates initialise dialogue and sends back a menu option packet back, I'm barely playing at the moment - am EU based and seems incredibly difficult to get together with a group. But can take a look when I get time if no one beats me to it

    now we just need another one that automatically sells all of an item you choose to an npc vendor, instead of having to npc dozens of them at a time while constantly pressing enter and arrow keys yourself! XD

    no problem

    and i was thinking of adding
    1. a way to select what you want to do based in a display like my gearswap skillup/include(but realized that would be difficult and i have forgotten more about texts the most know about it)
    2. a way to get max of selected items based on how many sparks are left (this also turned out harder then i expected)
