Hello,

I was wondering if there was a way to see the name of a furniture when looking at it? I could not find any Add on for that and I guess API restrictions are involved... Anyway who knows if I am missing something?

    @xericdx <3 Lol, I realized that you probably already were aware after I made that post -- sorry!

    But, to answer your question: sadly, no, this is not possible at the moment. The API's function that allows you to iterate through furniture placed in the house returns an empty set and the only other way to obtain the ID of a placed furnishing is by selecting the item and using a different function that returns the selected item's ID (which is also impossible as you cannot select items without decorator permission).

    You did me a favor by asking though because I totally meant to put in a request to change this API behavior to allow for read-only operations such as these to function in any home, regardless of permissions. If the developers do so, then yes, it would be much more feasible to provide functionality such as this. :smile:

    Don't think there is a way to do that. Though of course a dedicated furniture crafter would be able to recognize most pieces, whether they are craftables, achievement pieces or lux vendor goods. I know a couple of my friends use me as the designated "what is this furniture piece called" person, hah.

    Eheh, yes indeed. Problem is that I am creating a showcase for the Guildies with (as many as possible) different craftable and luxury
    furniture (will have to show you for advice by the way @Carbonised ) and it would be awesome if they were able to see what they are looking at.

    Not that I know of - which is silly tbh.

    When you hover over / pick an item up in build mode, it absolutely should tell you the items name.
    Just some small text, somewhere discreet but obvious in your UI.
    It's not a game breaker at all, but a tiny QOL improvement that just makes sense.

    I think he wants to be able to see it in other people's houses though, when looking at or hovering over an item. I don't imagine that's something an addon will ever be able to do, but maybe I'm wrong?
