    How to make a Custom Currency 3.3.5

    Decided to write this quickly because I was in the process of doing it anyway, and didn't see an updated guide posted elsewhere:

    What is a currency?
    - A currency is an item like Honor Points, ICC upgradable rings, Badge of Justice, Frozen Orb or Primordial Saronite.
    - A currency ID or (ItemExtendedCost) can be optionally used when adding items to vendors which will allow that vendor to sell an item for that currency.
    - You are defining not only the currency, but the quantity of that currency that is required when you make an ItemExtendedCost.
    - Following this you can make your own custom currency, which could be used to purchase your own custom items from your own custom vendors.


    How to Start?
    - Make a normal junk item that will become your currency.
    - Make sure it has an entryID (I'm using 80000 )
    - make sure it has a displayID. (I'm using 32878 )
    - fix things like the red question mark issue (How to fix Custom Item Red Question Mark 3.3.5).
    - Add it to your Database.
    - Login to the game.


    From Junk to Currency:


    - Download "DBCUtil"
    - Go to your Server .dbc files.
    - Copy "ItemExtendedCost.dbc" to desktop.

    - Drag ItemExtendedCost.dbc onto DBCUtil.exe to convert to ItemExtendedCost.dbc.csv

    - Download "Notepad++"
    - Open ItemExtendedCost.dbc.csv file with Notepad++

    Lines in this file generally look like this:

    80000,0,0,0x0,80006,0,0,0x0,0,1,0,0x0,0,0,0,,

    The only column values you need to care about are: 1, 5 and 10.
    - 1 is the entryID of the ItemExtendedCost (just make this 80000 )
    - 5 is the entryID of your junk item being used as currency (That we just made)
    - 10 is the quantity of that item that will be required. (In this case 1)

    - Add this line to your file remembering to keep both commas.
    - make sure the file ends with an empty line.
    - Save the file and close it.

    - Drag ItemExtendedCost.dbc.csv back onto DBCUtil.exe to convert to ItemExtendedCost.dbc
    - Backup your original ItemExtendedCost.dbc.


    Client and Server update:

    - Replace the original ItemExtendedCost.dbc file in your Server/dbc folder with your new one.

    You will also need to patch your clientside files with the new ItemExtendedCost.dbc:
    - Download "Ladiks MPQ Editor"
    - Make a new empty MPQ.
    - Make sure the MPQ compatibility is set to 3.3.5.
    - Make an empty folder called "DBFilesClient" inside the MPQ.
    - add the ItemExtendedCost.dbc file to the MPQ.

    Creating the Vendor:

    - Add the entryID for your item that you want to sell.
    - Provide the Vendor with the ItemExtendedCost entryID (80000)

    What it looks like:

    Currency in Bags:

    Currency used by Vendor:

    Completed purchase:


    Questions:

    Q: All of my items cost 1 [Currency]! How do I make some items cost 10 [Currency] or 100 [Currency]?
    A: When you make a ItemExtendedCost ID you are defining both the entry ID of the Currency item to be used, and also the amount of that item required. To make some items cost 1 point and others cost 10 you require multiple ItemExtendedCost rows, increasing the amount variable (Column 10)

    On you're database manager, find Bag Family and put 8192, If you are ever confused on creating a similar item find it in the Database manager and compare numbers and experiment. (Example) Entry = 37836 (Venture Coin, a Currency able to be referenced) Sorry on the late 5 month reply XD

    To find currency in the game use Trinity Creator, use the Lookup tool on the right and type in the name of the Currency. DO not use wotlk.evowow.com
    the Entry ID's there are not right.
