What is MacroQuest2?

MacroQuest2 is free open source software that makes EverQuest more functional, bringing unique and modern MMORPG features to the classic game.

Is this allowed?
Very Vanilla only works on servers that allow multi-boxing, and does not contain game-breaking active hacks or cheats. While playing, please follow these guidelines to be a good representative of our community:
  • Stay at your keyboard.
  • Be considerate of other players.
While our goal is to make multiboxing software accepted by the entire EverQuest community, Darkpaw Games doesn't endorse any software but their own, and they have suspended users in the past for using MacroQuest. Use with caution on their servers.

What are some fun things I can do with Very Vanilla?
That's a big topic! Let's start with some simple functions:
  • Watch "The Red Guide to Multiboxing" videos for beginner's directions to multi-box a full group.
  • Automatically log in all of your characters with one click.
  • Read the beginner's guide to the KissAssist macro, so you can begin a multi-boxing group.
  • Need to find someone in the zone? Type, /target playername and then /face. This also works for NPC’s. /target King Xorbb
  • Get a notification whenever a rare spawn is up, check out MQ2SpawnMaster for more info.
  • Run a macro from the macro section.
  • Run a plugin from the plugin section.
  • Make KissAssist handle all your clickies and buffs, so you can focus on playing. After setting up KissAssist, just target yourself and type /mac kissassist manual and then /buffson and you'll have full control over everything, but your toon will do all your clickies and buffs for you.

Very consistent and easy to use when it is updated, which unfortunately is only about half of the time. Daybreak has been updating quite a bit, and every time this breaks due to a simple version desynch. With gamefile updates every ten days and updates to this version lagging by five, it just does not keep up or get the attention that the live version does.
Updates break more than just offsets, there are entire structs that need to be re-done. Some of the most destructive (from our perspective) updates to EverQuest happened this year, and like all patches they hit the Test server first. Even if there was twice the effort put into Test that we put into Live, it would still lag with updates in comparison.
This refreshed my love of EQ. I'm a life long permanant testie (hmmmm) so this is great to have something that works for test separate from live. Thanks for all the work!
Amazing that the put the work into keeping test updated too. I testcopy over my box team regularly and this lets me try out or go after stuff that's camped. Runs just as smoothly as the live version. Great work.
thank you :) remember you can play both test & live at the same time, same account
