Principle of alchemy and cooking
automation is similar to production jobs automation. At first
you register icons of ingredients, results and tool. Then choose required
items in drop down boxes, define quantities to load and to use in
recipe. When task plan is ready you name it, define its type
(alchemy or cooking) and add to the list of tasks. Moving to
Rent storage container from
warehouse manager in a town. It will cost 10 contribution points.
Purchase residence and enter it.
It is recommended to purchase empty residence for botting to avoid
interaction with wrong furniture installed in residence
Open furniture manager view with
place mode button on the top of your game window: Don't rotate
camera or modify anything in the window.
Bot will install alchemy tool or
cooking utensil near the center of game window (in top right angle of
Green cycle is position of your character when you
start bot. Depending on the room size, your position may differ (green
Red rectangle is a place where you install
storage box. If room is bigger, you may need to install storage box in red
arrows positions. Just to check that storage box is installed correctly and
character has correct initial position. When you install tool and
exit furniture manager view, camera is looking in the direction of
a tool (+- 45 degrees). Tool may be opened with R. Storage
box may be opened with camera rotation by 180 degrees and pressing
Register all ingredients, result and tool icons as
described in production
bot uses the same icons and names. Alchemy and cooking subproducts as well as
broken tool images will be detected automatically. No need to register these
icons. Bot will trash broken standard, intermediate and advanced
tools/utensils only. Another tools with production time penalty was not
implemented as bad choise for botting.
Add ingredients, results and tool to the plan
using selected tabs as shown on screens.
Define task name. Better to add result name and
number of runs to not forget about the setup.
Define task type (alchemy or cooking) and add it
to the list with 'Register Task' button.
To start adding new task click Clear
Ingredients/Results button to clear previous task plan, besides if you don't
want to slightly modify it (e.g. switch wheat with potato in beer
recipe). You can add as many tasks as you want. Bot will cycle them. You
can, in principle, mix alchemy and cooking tasks or use different tools.
If bot fails to find ingredients or tool in warehouse, it will delay
current task and continue with next task.
You can use checkboxes in task name list to
deactivate task for a while.
Lets look into common settings:
Define time in minutes to delay task if no
ingredient found in storage box and another delay if no tool found in storage
In the process of alchemy or cooking you collect
subproducts. If you want to unload them automatically enable weight control
and define minimal weight when bot start to care about those items. Unloading
5-6 subproducts every run is time consuming and not necessary, especially if
you use standard tools with just 100 runs.
If necessary enable autoarrange storage to make
ingredients visible in the first 64 cells in storage box. Bot will not scroll
storage box to find ingredients.
Leave 'Autofit Clothes' ticked. If you have a mix
of alchemy and cooking tasks, bot will equip alchemy or cooking
clothes most suitable for the task before
start. Bot does not detect what is equipped at the moment, so keep only
one clothes type in inventory.
As soon as all ingredients or tools for alchemy or
cooking consumed, bot will check if any production
tasks present and start
production job. After production job is finished, bot will recheck
for cooking/alchemy ingredients again. Get an idea that production bot
may also fit production clothes automatically.
Last tab is buffs settings:
To use and refit broken life stones tick 'Use
Alchemy Stone' checkbox. Atm it works with spirit, rough and polished life
stones. If you need another life stone type to be implemented, send its image
in inventory as screen.bmp to developer.
Bot may activate verdure drought and food to speed
up cooking or alchemy. Set a hotkeys and in case of a food set activation
interval. Bot may detect standard versions of teff bread and teff sandwich in
inventory. If you use cooking, activation of a food buff may affect detection
of a position of a result in inventory by icon because of a timer.
Feed workers checkbox. Bot will check for standard
beer or grilled bird meat and feed workers every hour if enabled
To start alchemy/cooking jobs select corresponding
algorithm on the front page and click start.
Tips to increase max weight of inventory for
cooking and alchemy bot:
+80 Lt for centaurus belt, +100 Lt manos
golden coral belt and additionally +100 Lt with each enchant level,
+100 Lt for Asula's Crimson Eye Belt (drop only item).
+100 Lt if you use root treant's accessory 5-item
set w/o belt. Sold by armor vendor NPC Grandus in Calpheon sity
+100 Lt will give value pack (perl shop)
+50 Lt for 3500 loyalty points (pearl
shop->lp). Max 4 purchases per character = 200 Lt
+30 Lt for leveling strength till 21. This will
take time. Need to visit trader, purchase any of packs and walk. Max Lt
increase is +40
Don't try to count on food weight buffs, life
stone buff etc. as current job will be cancelled when buff is gone even
for a few seconds in case of overweight.
