I have 30 different item slots and each one has 11 different properties that I want to edit.
The offsets for each slot is exactly the same and the offsets for each property from the base address of each slot is exactly the same. Like below

Each slot is offset by 11D0
The property offsets are as such.
Prop 1 - +0
Prop 2 - +8
Prop 3 - +4
Prop 4 - +C
Prop 5 - +28
Prop 6 - +20
Prop 7 - +18
Prop 8 - +5C8
Prop 9 - +5CC
Prop 10 - +5D0
Prop 11 - +5D4

Is there a way I can automate finding all 30 slots and all 11 properties within each of the slots so that I don't have to manually add each property?

I also want to be able to set each property to the exact same value as the ones I set in slot 1.

Eg
Slot 1 - Prop 1 Value 100 <- When I set this
Slot 2 - Prop 1 Value 100 <- this and all subsequent prop 1 values get set.

is there a way to automate this as well?

Code:
local firstSlot = getAddress('00AAA300')
local propOffset = { 0, 8, 4, 12, 40, 32, 24, 1480, 1484, 1488, 1492 }

for slot = 1, 30 do
  local header = AddressList.createMemoryRecord()
  header.IsGroupHeader = true
  header.Description = 'Slot '..slot
  for prop = 1, 11 do
    local memrec = AddressList.createMemoryRecord()
    memrec.appendToEntry(header)
    memrec.Description = 'Prop '..prop
    memrec.Type = vtDword
    memrec.Address = getNameFromAddress(firstSlot + (slot - 1) * 4556 + propOffset[prop])
  end
end
(using decimal literals b/c cloudfare seems to get annoyed if you use hexadecimal literals)
Code:
function setAllProperties(prop_i, value)
  local desc = 'Prop '..prop_i
  value = assert(tostring(value))

  for i = 0, AddressList.Count - 1 do
    if AddressList[i].Description == desc then
      AddressList[i].Value = value
    end
  end
end

-- usage: setAllProperties(1, 80)
--        sets all memory records with description "Prop 1" to the value "80"

My word, you're a star.
Hours of work on my side and i couldn't find this solution... I was just about ready to start with a trainer that used for loops...

Edit: Yes, i know i could've set them all by hand in that time but why pass up the opportunity to learn something?
