POE 2.0 Item Filter for The Awakening Beta Test – Dropping Items Colors and Sound

The article is from official site: 2.0 Item Filter

Item Filters
For a long time, Path of Exile players have requested some way to filter items. We were always resistant to this because the parameters of such an item filter would have to be so complicated that we couldn't reasonably make a user interface to support them.

For example, a lot of players want a way to filter out Magic and Normal items. This would be fine, but they still also want to see base item types above level 70. And currency. But not scrolls because they have enough of those. And maps. And any item with 20% quality. But any gem that has quality is good too. And any item with 6 sockets. And any item with 5 or more linked sockets.

As you can see, the array of UI options that we would have to provide to allow the specific filtering requirements of every player would be completely impractical.

This is why we are adding a new feature called Item Filter Scripts in the upcoming expansion. Not only do item filter scripts allow you to filter items, but they allow you to customise the display of items as well.

Item Filter Script Example
The following is a filter script that shows all the items described above and hides everything else:

For example, say you want to show gems that have quality with a blue border. You could do that with the BorderColor attribute as shown here:

The basic syntax of a script is a collection of Show and Hide blocks that each specify conditions. Anything matched by a Show block will be shown and anything matched by a Hide block will be hidden. If there are multiple conditions in a block then all of them must be matched for the block to match an item.

The blocks are matched in the order they come in the file which means that you need to have the block that hides the scrolls above before the line that shows the currency because scrolls would also match the currency block.

An empty block matches all items, which means that the Hide at the end of the file effectively hides everything that wasn't specifically shown.

The example here uses a whitelisting approach where you specify all the items that you want to see, but it is perfectly reasonable to create a filter script that simply hides the items you don't wish to see while showing the rest with an empty Show at the bottom.


Item Filter Condition Types

The following is a full list of all the conditions that you can specify to filter items. Numeric conditions allow you to use comparison operators such as less than (<) or greater than or equals (>=) to indicate that you would like to include items that would compare that way.

Modifying How Items Are Shown

The item filter system also gives you the ability to modify how items are displayed.

For example, say you want to show gems that have quality with a blue border. You could do that with the BorderColor attribute as shown here:

Players production tools: the right part will show the modification results after you fill in the commands.
It also points to the items in the right maps. The tool will help you control the instructions in the left map.
