Utility shiny / reward (EQ collection items / overseer collection dispensers) 2021-02-18

Server Type
use overseer dispensers to fill in your missing collections.

The idea behind this is that you have houses with collectibles (one per expansion should be enough). Now when you make a new character you run around and just grab one of each and click it. Well yes if you want to give up in frustration with all the clicking.

My saviour* my hero* is the following macro that does all of this for you.
* debatable

Future plans:
  1. On startup create a Collections.ini section if it does not exist
  2. On collecting a collectible set the Collections.ini section item as collected
  3. Inspect the collectible items with the same name to use the ID e.g Corpse Dust
  4. Dump the vault list to a file
It sometimes ends without doing everything necessary (experiencing behavior when changing the owner). Still trying to work this out (look for Failed and rerun it)

Was originally imagined as just sorting colleciton items (as if)
Then it grew: click it, change owners, check house content
Then found oh noes the achievement list is nowhere accurate spelling/duplicate names

Forum post where I though I could just take the output from the everquest achievement window and use that, spelling on items would match the collection name. I was so wrong. So had to add the shiny.ini and had to keep editing it as new mistakes were found. History tracking was needed. so moved it here.
