About Battle Pet Tabs

Official repository can be found at GitHub.

Battle Pet Tabs

You can create up to 10 team loadouts and toggle between them by pressing the tabs on the Pet Journal - could it get any simpler? You can also store your team compositions into a dropbox, and then easily swap between active and inactive teams!

Warlords of Draenor

The addon has been reworked and released as early beta for WOD. Feedback regarding bugs and issues are encouraged.

    I love this addon, but would it be possible to add an option to lock the tabs we dont want to change?

  • #32

    It's doable, just wondering how I am to implement it, probably a modified-click on the button to toggle the lock state, I'll probably add it along with the grouping feature I am to work with (mentioned below) - thanks for the suggestion. :)

    I have a suggestion if you're open too it. 

    Grouping Plug-In. 

    I'm suggestion a plug-in as a way not to impact the true version of this addon.  What it would allow is for specific teams tabs to be grouped under a common name and then when selected the tabs(teams) of that group would be visable.  I started using your addon (in conjuntion) with Battle Pet Teams because it gave me the fluid-ness and compactness that I needed without the huge long list. Currently, I use Tabs for the Tamers, and PBTeams my pvp, leveling, rare catching pets.

    So with that in mind I came up with this suggestion.  Creating a grouping function with a drop-down menu-maybe located near the revive pet.  Each grouping would still allow up to 8 tabs.  Then each grouping would allow for naming by the user.  A player (like myself) could then have Panderia/Northrend Tamers as one group and Misc Tamers as another group then naming each team either the zone or the tamer name for quick selection.  Another grouping might be PVP, becuase it's good to have mulitple teams if you happen to end up fighting the same 2-3 people due to the time of day/night you are battling.  A Leveling group would be good because of the changes in 5.2 with XP being used based on the highest level pet in the group (so I won't be power leveling with my 25's anymore).  This type of combinations leads to easily over 8 tabs but it would keep your UI clean which is the impression I have from reading some of your posts. 

    Thanks for taking the time to look this over and I really like this addon.

    It's a interesting suggestion, this could be an additional addon that can be easily enabled/disabled to toggle this feature on and off, I'll see what I can do, gonna look into making this come to realization, can't say exactly when it will be done, but I agree it would be helpful with different sets of pet teams, for different purposes. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

    I'm having an issue with this addon. Don't know if I'm just doing something wrong or what but when I create a pet team it makes a tab and I can give it a name and all, but if I log out or switch characters I will lose the all the teams I've made and have to reamke them. It doesn't seem to wanna save the team for very long or sometimes not even at all.


  • #26

    Hmm, I figured this problem was fixed a while ago. What are your specs? OS? Running the game on an old and slow machine? Perhaps running Wine?

    It should always save the teams, only situation where the tabs don't carry over is cross different accounts or sub-accounts.

    Just have to check, you do not have problems with other addons that you use that also store settings, right?

    Trying to rule out issues with installation, hehe.

    Also do me a favor and only have the addon enabled while disabling everything else and see what happens.

    In advance I am sorry for this inconvenience.

    There any way to disable the macro functionality of this addon?   Whenever I switch pets it tries to make macros but my macro bank is filled up so the addon spams me with errors about it's inability to make a macro that I have no intention of using or care about.

  • #24

    That is actually a bug, a macro should only be created when you drag the tab button, not when you just select a team. Sorry about this, odd I didn't notice it earlier.

    In any case, trying to force to to make macros but so far it doesn't do it unless I drag the button, as mentioned. If you delete the team macros do you still have this issue?

    awesome addon!

    there are some thing that  would make it even more awesome, however

    the ability to lock the teams and/or to atleast have it always reset to "new (unsaved) team" when opening the journal. i have set teams for the high level dailies, but the big issue is that once i do that daily, the addon keeps selected that pet team. so if i switch pets, it automatically switches the pets in that team, a thing which i don't want (i want the teams that i saved to remain like that). i have seen myself switching pets in the 'saved' teams without me even noticing, which kinda defeats the whole purpose of having teams.

    it would be also nice if it can support more than 8 teams, or if it can have a separate team list/setup for the daily quests (other list than the 8 teams)

    i also wouldn't mind having the name of each team shown next to the icon all the time (maybe an option to enable/disable this), so that i don't have to mouseover all the teams everytime until i find the one that i want to load.

    my only use for the addon is to have pre-made teams for the battle pet daily quests, so that i don't have to search wowhead and then search on my pet list for pets that are strong vs that grand master tamer, for each battle

    It seems that Battle Pet Tabs does more than just add tabs; it also changes the colours of the health bars when in battle, and the colours of the health bars when switching pets. The first are set to green red and yellow (?) and the second are set to the colour of the rarity (so green, blue).

    I checked out the lua file. It was easy to disable the colouring of the healthbars. I still don't understand why the regular health bars were getting those strange colours - they certainly didn't become blue. I'm fine with coloured names, in fact, it is nicer that way. Health bars need to remain the same though - I'm a colour blind person, it is disorienting if colours are used too much.

  • #19

    Sorry about that, luckily in 5.1 I will remove this as it becomes part of the default UI and it may take into account when the color blind option is selected as well! :)
