Frist - Thanks Samadan. You rock :)
I hope Venture Plan is not discontinued, it's so good and useful. If the dev needs a break, go for it, I get it; but if he feels he doesn't want to continue playing WoW, hopefully he will pass the torch to someone else.
Venture Plan is my favorite addon aside from TSM. I have 5 alts (with a sixth on the way), and have made tons of money with it. I respect their choice to take a break, though, and hope they find peace from whatever was bothering them.
https://github.com/Gaboros/VenturePlanSomeone already has started updates. If you download the zip file, it is named VenturePlan-master.zip. Once unzipped, you will see a folder named Addon. That is the folder you need. Delete VenturePlan from your Interface\AddOns folder, copy AddOns to Interface\AddOns, and rename it from Addons to VenturePlan.
I’ve always been fascinated by the complex in-game economy that has emerged in WoW over the years but I am equally perplexed by the astounding amount of time and effort people put into making gold when the real money transactions have largely invalidated it.You can simply buy all the gold you could ever want with just a few hours/days of work in the real world depending on what you do and what your earning potential is. I guess I just never understood the appeal but more power to y’all.
I use to use TSM 3.0 worked great, then when 4.0 came out it would lag my system when I looted something and the destroying would work few times before it quit, I have 3k top end computer custom built just to play WOW and few other games, went with another add on and used a macro for destroying. I tried the new 4.11 and see same problems still plague TSM, went back to my old auctioning tool.
Going on the other commentators, some addon managers like wowup and Cursebreaker have options to: "install addon from URL" and you can link the github repo of the URL to the addon manager and it will now and forever more keep it updated like any addon.
