Starter zones

Hey,
I've just discovered that gem of a setting which sorts the zones in the story order, and omg I will be making **everyone** install this Votan's Improved Locations (27)

There's a tiny problem with that, however: there are two starter zones in both DC and EP, and they are both marked as 1, and then sorted by alphabet. Which - in both cases - is the reverse order than the actual story order (Bleakrock > Bal Foyen and Stros M'Kai > Betnikh).
I hope it can be fixed without some overly ugly hack Votan's Improved Locations (28)

And thanks for all your addons, you're a lifesaver.

Alphabetical Mode

Is it please possible for you to make an alphabetized mode?

I found that your addon fixes an issue that I have with the locations list becoming repeated due to some other addon.

But I don't really care about factions. I just want all locations as part of an alphabetized list.

I tried to edit the addon to make all locations be code "100" but there became an issue when completing a survey that the locations would float to the top of the location list for some unknown reason. So the list became out of order again.

It would be really nice to have the alphabetized list that doesn't require scrolling. Thanks for any help.

Hallo,

ich spiele auf dem EU Server in deutsch und auf dem NA Server in englisch. Die Favoriten sehen in Deutsch z.B. so aus (verkürztes Beispiel):

Dunkelforst
Glenumbra
Kalthafen

Dann logge ich mich aus dem EU Server aus und in den NA Server in englisch ein. Dann sieht es so aus:

Blackwood
Glenumbra
Coldhabour

Die Sortierung stimmt so nicht und wird beim ersten Klick auf die Favoriten (z.B. auf Glenumbra) in

Blackwood
Coldhabour
Glenumbra

geändert. Dann kommt man aber nicht auf Glenumbra, sondern auf Coldhabour.
Wenn man sich jetzt aus dem NA Server abmeldet und in deutsch auf dem EU Server wieder anmeldet, sieht es so aus:

Dunkelforst
Kalthafen
Glenumbra

Was auch wieder falsch ist und beim ersten Klick korrigiert wird.

Ich hoffe ich konnte es etwas klarer machen.
Vielen Dank und Gruß

This happens when I played in German before, as Coldhabour and Craglorn are starting with a K in German:

When you now click on 5th entry (Craglorn, see first image) you end up in High Isle, as the list is sort during / before the click and one ends up in the from zone.

When sorting regions by name, would you make it possible to ignore "The" in the name? That way it doesn't end up that all the regions with "The" in their name don't end up grouped together.

Which language do you use?

Meanwhile you can disable the "Votan's Survey The World" extension.

I use chinese, and I don't have this addon called "Votan's Survey The World" Votan's Improved Locations (53)

Maybe the chinese charactor encoding cause this issue?

You have, trust me. It is in the error message Votan's Improved Locations (54) It is shipped with this addon. Search for "Survey", it must be there.

And yes, chinese causes that.
The addon searches for a colon ":" in the name of the survey. How is that done in chinese? How does a survey name look like?

Oh yes, u r right. I found this addon. I disable this addon and error is gone! Thanks a lot! Votan's Improved Locations (55)

About the colon ":" , it's different between the english and chinese. The colon ":" in chinese is ":", the unicode utf16 is 'FF1A'.

For example: The "Blacksmith Survey:Coldharbour" in chinese is "铁匠调查:冷港". The colon not a same one.

Sorry, those google links had all of my personal info, so I deleted them. Let me know where I can send them privately, or another way to get them to you without using frigging Google and I'll get right on it.

Thanks in advance.

I had to close the game via Steam again as my game was frozen.

I try to reproduce, but I can't get am error.
Can you please test this addon stand-alone?

So sorry for the late response, it's on the north side of Alinor.

I had the error show up randomly last week, but not since. I see you have a new update. Let me know if you still need me to do anything else on this.

I'm getting the same error. I started a new toon and had to go to Alinor to do the jewelry certification quest. Now every time I try to activate the shrine I get this error.

I'm at the shrine that's visible on the East side of the city map.

Collected my writs and decided to do them in Summerset instead of High Isle. Used the map to portal to the exterior of my Summerset apartment and immediately received the error. I could not get into curser mode to copy it, so had to take a screen shot.

Sorry, those google links had all of my personal info, so I deleted them. Let me know where I can send them privately, or another way to get them to you without using frigging Google and I'll get right on it.

Thanks in advance.

I had to close the game via Steam again as my game was frozen.
