is there a nice way to find an item number by name without crawling the items endpoint?
I think one of the third-party sites has an API for searching by name
I can't remember which one though

ya their backend hasnt crawled the API yet haha

looks like api doesnt have it yet
I don't see it in the whitelist queue

May 03 2017 01:45 UTC
ahh that item doesnt return anything from the API... probably why the site I was checking didnt have it. Do the items only make it to the API later on?

In any case, when you look for a thing that gives you the item ids based on the exact item, you can use this, if you want.

okay so tiles aren't happening today
I finished generating them, but forgot my keepass master password
so I can't get into AWS to create a new S3 bucket

"Rock Star"
it's actually my PGP passphrase that's in there, not my keepass master

@milneti any others you're missing?
milneti
@milneti
May 03 2017 01:56 UTC
no I was just looking to add that one to a list of daily converters. Thanks for the help! and thanks for whitelisting it @lye :)
anyway, new tiles are uploading; should be able to switch 'em over tomorrow

No one has it yet because you have no legitmate way to earn it for 2-3 years at this rate, so not surprising it isnt whitelisted. Messing with an achievement view?
The 81 items in recipe source all look like they're part of gen1 precursor crafting stuff and are unlocked by NPC interaction..

This is probably because no-one has acquired that skin (thats pretty impossible right now)

I guess thats supposed to be the skin FOR 80881? that would be https://api.guildwars2.com/v2/skins/7201
the item is in the API

May 03 2017 13:19 UTC
i'm still kinda sad about it; not because i want to actually wear that backpiece, just that's unavailable for another 2-3 years...
and that it shares the daily chests with the assassin one

Okay, new tiles finished uploading overnight.
Kicking off the invalidation of old tiles now.

@JC123
May 03 2017 19:13 UTC
@lye is there a reason why ember bay/map id 1175 is reported by the api as being region id 20 but game content says its 10?
what do you mean when you say "game content" -- what are you looking at
region 10 = Heart of Maguuma
region 20 = Ring of Fire
JC123
@JC123
May 03 2017 19:30 UTC
its evident by the fact that Daily Heart of Maguuma Gatherer works in ember bay but not draconic mons
uhhhhh
happen to have that achievement id?
hmm, ember bay in content says it should be in Heart of Maguuma
JC123
@JC123
May 03 2017 19:32 UTC
thats what im sayin lol
but api says rof
yeah
lemme see where the heck that's coming from
I've literally no clue
Maybe the branch I'm working on has different data
What I'm looking at, each map has a field for a region
Ember Bay = Jungle
Draconis Mon = Lava
HOWEVER there is a separate "region" that's generated from some other data; those generated regions have lists of maps that are contained within them
the generated data is what's used by all the mapping subsystems (and the API) and lists Ember Bay in the Lava region
the gameplay subsystems use the region field in the map data
something something third normal form
JC123
@JC123
May 03 2017 19:47 UTC
yeah i figured a lot of that out the hard way by looking at the files, which is what i meant by game content
I passed on the complaint
There's probably some reason it's done that way
I ... could expose both regions I guess?
"this is the region it's in for map purposes", "this is the region it's in for gameplay purposes"
JC123
@JC123
May 03 2017 19:50 UTC
possibly yeah, its just somewhat confusing why the jungle daily works in one of them and not the other
so that could clear it up
I'm so confused
regions-what.png
JC123
@JC123
May 03 2017 20:02 UTC
so theres some special reason the map def is 10? #alsoconfused
I've literally no idea
the API output is not matching what's in content
like content is all screwy as well
but the API backend server should be serializing out that "Region = Jungle" bit in the top
and it's not
and I've no clue as to why
I'm punting on this
the answer is probably something totally insane and uncomprehensible

Is it intentional that the removed map, Labyrinthine Cliffs, has a bunch of associated events in v1/event_details, but no information for it can be found within v1/maps?
not a clue :<
the map was probably deleted but not the associated content
re: regions
i must have done something wrong because i'm getting different data back now
at some point in the future, ember bay may move into jungle (??) and then move back to lava (???)

Does the z-index for position in tyria increase as you fall towards sea level?
I thought z was up
I'm not sure how the axis is oriented

@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 21:45 UTC
https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/User:Chieftain_Alex/sandbox5?action=raw&ctype=text/javascript
I still think an events api arranged like the output of map_event_details would be nice.
yeah :<
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 21:46 UTC
in terms of events, giving one id and expecting one event would be both logical and useless. map ids are pretty good.
is there a v2/events squirreled away somewhere?
I think I deleted it
oh hmm it's totally here
why is this turned off
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 21:55 UTC
very different implementation?
beats me tbh
the only thing I see related is
    Option = features./v1/event_names,          false ; currently blows up PSS, re-enable tomorrow
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 21:57 UTC
even the stuff in that sandbox would be a massive improvement over v1, it wouldn't have to be massively different.

Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 03 2017 22:02 UTC
  /v2/events [l,d]
  /v2/events-state [d]
/v2/events-state probably won't be a thing ever :P
also, it's the only endpoint with a dash
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 22:02 UTC
i'd be fine without having that.
unless they give an option to change instance by ip ingame.
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 03 2017 22:02 UTC
making it a subendpoint like /v2/events/state is probably better, if it will ever exist
i still like having event states by map instance id
in combination with the websocket...
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 22:03 UTC
let's not distract lye with that one
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 03 2017 22:03 UTC
yeah :(
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
May 03 2017 22:03 UTC
plain events should be easy enough
Archomeda
@Archomeda
May 03 2017 22:03 UTC
event details should be (hopefully)
since they still exist in v1
port it to v2, make it bulk expanded, etc etc
/v2/events/search maybe? :D
although... not sure if that's worth it
probably still good enough to just get all the events locally and search there
