Question - MQ2Nav in Bazaar

Awhile back I was able to click on a trader in the bazaar window and my toon ran to that trader. A few updates ago that stopped working. Is there something I need to update? Or a fix to make it work again? Thanks

That would be neat but the issue is mq2nav does not deal with figuring out where portals take you, so if you are in red or in blue and the trader is in other area it will screw up

You could always /nav target if you are in the correct area after you click on their name in bazaar window

Althou I do find it interesting that some plugin (or eq) knows to go to the portal when making the path for you
I wonder if this could be added to MQ2EasyFind somehow or what is actually doing that

Agreed, but this has been broken since back near the beginning of the year I think. Macro's using moveto and such can get you through the portals, but Lamah is right, your best bet is to find your target(goober123) and:
Code:
/nav goober123
to get to a vendor once you decide who you are buying from once you're in the area they're in. It'll get you right to them. It just won't take you across any of the portal pads or zone lines.

Nav won't be able to generate a path across portals until I do a bunch of work to support long distance off-mesh links. Its a good idea though. Easyfind might be able to do it with meshless (server rendered) pathing.

I had been meaning to post asking about this. Till about 2 months ago this worked. You clicked and it took you to the seller, now it doesn't.

If you're on the right side of the portal pad, it should work. I was using it just yesterday. Alt-A to open bazaar window, search for item, click the item you want and then click "find seller" and it takes off running. However, if you're down in the area where you zone in from PoK, you first need to manually walk to to the portal for either sellers or buyers.

Yes I'm in the seller area. I need to confirm but I think it works on some or all of the other accounts. It did work on mine until 1-2 months ago.

my cleric account also started some wonky nav behavior. I hit come to me, and everyone but the cleric does. It tells me it cannot find the destination, to load the mesh or something even though several lines above that it says mesh loaded. It also won't follow ctrl F clicks. The two issues I think are unrelated because my main account, while not naving to sellers in the baz, will always nav from Ctrl F window.

I'll test it out in a little bit.

What I do in macros currently for portals is Target the switch and wait till I am ported away from them

Code:
Sub navToPortalID(int iPortalID)
    DODBG navToPortalID doorID = ${iPortalID}
    /nav door id ${iPortalID} click
    /doortarget id ${iPortalID}
    /delay 3 !${Me.Moving}
    /while ( ${Switch.Distance}<60 || ${Navigation.Active} || ${Me.Moving} ) {
        /delay 5
    }
/return
