This is simply a list of sites that I have used often or needed to use while playing SOTA. I may update this list in the future. Thanks to the creators of these posts, websites, and utilities. Enjoy!

    3. Copy the pic's link address - Once the pic is downloaded to imgur, hover the mouse over the downloaded pic and the link will appear in the upper right side of the pic. Click "copy" to copy the link.
    4. Insert the picture into your post - In your post, click the "image" icon on the toolbar to open the dialogue box, paste your pics' link into the box, and then add ".png" to the end of the address, then click "insert"
      For example:

      • Is the file extension correct? Try ".png" or ".jpg" or ".gif" or ".jpeg" or ".bmp"

    Hello everybody. I made a change to the title of the thread (removed the version number) so that links to this thread will not break every time I change the version. If you previously added this thread to your favorites list or saved its link, please delete the old favorite/link and add a new one. This current thread title will remain permanent, so, from this time forward, links to here will continue to function.
    Thank you,
    Rinaldi

    Hello,
    I have been steadily updating this thread, but I don't bother "bumping" the thread when i update the original post, so when you visit, check the "recently added" section at the top of the link list.
    However, this time, I wanted to bring special attention to several new and very useful links that I have to added to the list in the last several weeks. Check them out:
    Thanks to those who compiled the references above.

    Can you add www.sotatraders.com to your list, under either Item Pricing or Crafting (the site handles both aspects).
