I love seeing stats on what I've done in the game. I found MobInfo2 awhile back and enjoy seeing the stats on what I've killed. I don't bother with the downloadable database available for it as I don't care what others have gotten. If I ever do, I can always look on thottbot. I just want my own stats. Anyhow, the mod works great with only a few bugs, which probably won't ever be fixed since no one is working on the mod anymore. :(
Anyhow, that mod has me wanting more now. I would really like to see a mod that tracks *your* statistics for looting "containers" (things you open to loot). So, it would show the stats of what you've found in specific chests, bags, crates, clams, etc. For example, it would show that after 10 times looting Battered Chests, you've found 5 Medium Leather (50%), 5 Wool Cloth (50%), 3 Lesser Mana Potions (33%). In addition, you found 5s 34c in money. Or it would show that in 10 Clams, you've found 10 Clam Meat (100%) and 1 Small Lustrous Pearl (10%). A display similar to the one shown in MobInfo2 for mobs would be perfect. Considering you're more likely to get a really LONG list of items over time, it should be configurable to only show a specific number of items in the tooltip and then you can view the full list for that item in a main window (maybe as an expandable tree format similar to the one in the Fishing Buddy mod). It should track all items (including grays), though that can also be configurable as it is in MobInfo2. It would be good to also have it show % of each (gray, white, green, blue, etc.) like MobInfo2 does. My guess is that it would be most accurate to have it ONLY track the loot data for the item at the time the item is removed from the container so that you're not getting multiple data on the same item because you opened the container multiple times as happens often.
In addition to loot from containers, it would be great to have it also track "loot" from Ore Deposits and also from gathering herbs. The display should be a tooltip similar to what was described above. This wouldn't need a limit on items displayed, though. There aren't likely to be more than about 5 items for any given Deposit type.
Sorry for all the references to MobInfo2, but it's the only mod out there that's like that (at least that I've found). So it works best as an example so people know what I'm looking for. I'd try making this myself, but I've never used Lua. I know other languages and could probably figure it out if anyone was willing to help get me started, but I thought I'd post here in case anyone else is willing to make this.
Ok, I looked over that mod and it does track things somewhat. It's at least a temporary thing I can use, but it isn't really what I want. From testing, the popup tooltips only appear on the map/minimap rather than when you mouse over something. And I don't want mapping, so if I turn those off, I don't see anything. Also, it doesn't track all containers. It tracks only certain ones... basically containers that are on the ground and not ones looted such as Lockboxes or clams. I want to track all containers regardless if they are from loot or from the ground. And I want to have a tooltip when mousing over the container (or node).
Although Gatherer is a good temporary solution, it's not what I'm looking for, so I'm still looking for this kind of mod.
