<div>I am VERY happy to say, that the furniture gallery revamp at EQ2TC is finally completed! All images are now standardized in resolution and size, and each has a larger image with a book for scale linked to it! I invite all you decorators and furniture-aholics over to check it out!</div><div> </div><div><a target="_blank" href="http://eq2.eqtraders.com">http://eq2.eqtraders.com</a></div>

<div></div><div></div><p>WOW!!!!!</p><p>You did a fantastic job! Those pictures are crystal clear without the dark backgrounds.  It is great to be able to see pictures of what all the furniture looks like at last.  Definitely have this one bookmarked and linked from our guild's forum.</p><p>Thank you!</p><p>Xyla and the Frog</p><p>Lost Coast Privateers, Nektulos</p><p>Message Edited by Jessyme on <span class="date_text">01-20-2006</span><span class="time_text">05:33 PM</span></p>

<div>{grins} She did a fabulous job with them all, and I'm very very pleased to have them for the site. (Did I mention I was very pleased?  <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />)</div><div> </div><div>I'm adopting her!  {grins possessively}</div>

<div></div><p>Excellent job this is very helpful since I like the idea of furniture but I never got any since I had no idea what they looked like or what to ask for. Now I can.</p><p> </p><p>Nos</p>

Great job! I use that site all the time and now it is even better, thank you =)<div></div>

<div></div>Great job. Would love to see pictures of quest/faction related house items next. I know it's not crafted, but would be cool to see a nice complete collection of options on one site.

<div></div><p>Thanks alll for the compliments, but I couldn't have done it without some very special people, Niami (I accept adoption mum!) cause without her there IS no EQ2traders. She has selflessly donated her time and effort both in EQ for over 6 years, and now in EQ2 as well to keep the crafting community informed and supplied with the recipes and information that makes our lives so much easier. Ngreth too deserves mention, as Niami's other half and also someone who has put a zillion hours into the site. </p><p>Also, my guild, Random Justice League of Oggok (both past and present members). These fine folk supported me with both cash donations AND raw material foraging so I could craft each item and get a controlled screenshot.  My server crafters also deserve a kudos, as my bartering skills were never very good, and many of them graciously traded rares with me for the project, or sold them to me below server standard price to assist.</p><p>Jhoric, if Niami wishes to expand into that realm, I will gladly assist her with the project, but  do know there are other sites which have stepped up to fill that role since EQ2kb went away, such as <a target="_blank" href="http://eq2.bortas.net/">http://eq2.bortas.net/</a>.</p>

<div>While it'd be nice to have it all in one spot, I think the home customization options are as far as I want to drift from tradeskills right now in that part of the site. Partly, this is due to Bortas already working on something of the sort (I'll make sure to get a link in our furniture section pointing to his lovely work), and partly this is due to me mental screaming and spinning frantically in circles right now over the thought of totally scrapping our entire recipes database and having to redo it all from scratch when all the tradeskill changes hit.  (There are going to be too many special cases to do any sort of automagic conversion.)</div><div> </div><div>~Mum, breaking out her straightjacket of tradeskilling ... and VERY glad we got the gallery done before all the rest of this hit.</div>

<div>awesome work, thanks</div>

<div></div>Cool, I didn't know about that website (<a target="_blank" href="http://eq2.bortas.net">http://eq2.bortas.net</a>). I thought eq2kb was only thing beforehand and with that gone, there was much sadness hehe.

Very nice work indeed!  Thanks!<div></div>

Very nice. I'll be bookmarking it use all the time now.<div></div>

Elyana and Niami, I want to thank you both for your work on this. The pic's are perfect. I could not have asked for a better gallery. I send folks who are asking for furniture to your site for ideas all the time.I have one request/suggestion. I think it would be a nice touch to add a link to the recipe for the furniture on either the thumbs page or the larger image page. Many folks that hunt for furniture should see how much effort it takes or be able to quickly see what is needed to provide their crafter. I know you can search on it but as I said... it would be a nice touch.Again Kudos on a job well done!Tvarr60 Defiler / 60 Carpenter AB<div></div>

<div></div><p>Thanks Tvarr =)  Its nice to know it is helping people!</p><p>Regarding the recipes, now is a bad, bad bad time to try to implement something like that, in light of the fact that poor mum will be having to redo the ENTIRE recipe database after the tradeskill revamp occurs. She is already dreading that, and I would hate to see her under any more pressure!</p>

<div>The images are perfecto!  This is my first stop every time I get a decorating commission - great work</div><div> </div><div>Now to get Bortas's site filled up with all those quest, faction, and other misc housing items >; )</div>

There are too many things that will have to be outright removed (refines, interims, potions, poisons, spells that have been replaced by others with all the changes to spells and character progression), on top of all the ones that would "just" have to be changed, that it's going to be easier to start with an empty recipe data table than to tweak everything by hand ... too many exceptions to too many rules to try to do it in any automated form.</p><p>Once the dust has settled, we'll see what can be done, but getting all the recipes in place will be a priority before we worry about going back to the gallery and linking things in.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>
