About Coconuts

Coconuts adds a button to your interface that smartly decides a random mount for you. If you're in Outland and have a flying mount, it will pick it! Also lets you dismount. Easy switching to a slower mount or to a ground mount if you need to.

To pick your next slowest mount, hold down (default) Shift and click the button. To pick your ground mount while in an area which allows flying and you have a flying mount, hold down (default) Alt. To dismount while on a flying mount, hold down Shift, Alt, or Ctrl. To use Holly on your mount if you have any, while mounted hold down (default) Ctrl.

The button action can also be bound to a key using WoW's key interface or by entering /kb into the chat then clicking the button and pressing the key you want bound to it.

Coconut also understands travel forms, including flying and aquatic!

Usage & Commands

The chat command is /coconuts or /ccn. Options can also be set by using WoW's Interface->Addons tab.

Options are:

  • gui: Opens the GUI configurator.
  • options favorFlying: Toggles if flying mounts should be favored if in an area that allows them (default: yes).
  • options favorPassenger: Toggles if passenger mounts should be favored (default: yes).
  • options showModifierItems: Toggles if items that modify mounts (such as Fresh Holly) should be selected when holding Ctrl while mounted (default: yes).
  • options suggestOnlySoulbound: Toggles if only mounts that are soulbound to you are to be suggested for use (default: yes).
  • options list: List all of your mounts.
  • options refresh: Forces Coconuts to rescan for mounts in your bags.

Some options can only be set by using WoW's Interface->Addons tab. These include setting the favor flying, show modifier items, show next slowest mount, and favor passenger modifer key (Ctrl, Alt, or Shift), favorite mounts and the zone favorite.

Coconuts supports ButtonFacade, use /bf to configure the skin and color settings for the button if you have it installed.

Coconuts supports LibKeyBound, use /kb to enter key binding mode.

Coconuts's button will stick to other frames that support LibStickyFrames.

Coconuts outputs the current item it will use using LibDataBroker-1.1. Note that clicking on the item in a Broker addon will not activate the item. You must have Coconuts bound to a key to use it in a Broker addon and hide its own button.

    I just downloaded Coconuts. Now that mounts are account-wide I technically have the 2 engineer's flying machines on all my characters but I can't ride them without engineering skill. How can I remove them from my Coconuts list?
  • #91

    If you open your Addon options for Coconuts (the easiest way to get there typing "/coconuts gui" without the quotes into your chat), you can open up the + and there is a favorites window you can use to set the engineering mounts to never summon using the slider, setting it to 0. These settings are per-profile, so will only affect the character you are playing.

    I am working on fixing it such that it will ignore mounts that the player doesn't have skills to use as well, but that method will solve it for you on the character as well, it's just rather clunky and annoying to do on all characters :(

    I seem to be having an issue where my coconuts button is stuck on only the sandstone drake, even when selected on never.

    EDIT: Thank you for looking at my feature request as well, I logged on the new patch today and got to reselect all my mounts again : /  but can only mount the sandstone drake.

    Thank you, and great addon, been using it for awhile now.

    Do you happen to have Favor Passenger mounts set to on? If mine is on, it will only summon my Obsidian Nightwing even if the setting for that mount is never. Try unchecking that box.

  • #92

    Now I'm having a different problem but it's along the same lines.  I have everything selected to never except for what I actually use, but my traveler's tundra and chopper (set to default) never pop up on the button.  checking the favor more passengers does nothing, and even if it did, it still makes the sandstone drake pop up.

  • #88

    Yep, that was it, just needed to uncheck it, I'm not sure why I didn't think about it more, probably was just too excited, I hit 107 mounts,   :)

  • #87

    Hmmm shouldn't be doing that, if that is on but the mount is never it shouldn't be trying to summon it no matter what. I'll have to look into that, it sounds like the problem.

  • #85

    Really? The mounts should have carried over just fine, it's pets that were changed. Sorry that it happened :(

    I'm looking into that problem. Thanks for the support :)

  • #81

    I'm having a problem with using this on the beta.  Whenever I open my glyphs tab and attempt to apply a glyph, I get an error message stating "Coconuts has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI.  You can disable the addon and reload the UI."


  • #82

    Oh carp. I'll have to resolve that tonight. Thanks :)

  • #84

    Hmm I'm still not sure what is causing this. My wife has seen this with multiple addons in live, but I didn't even from Coconuts. Still looking into it, sorry

  • #77

    Feature Request: Can u add summoning a random companion as well like in smart mount? i would like to use your addon instead of smart mount but i like summoning random companions and your addon doesn´t support that, yet. ;-)

  • #79

    Companions are handeled by a seperate addon, MiniPet, if you'd like to check it out.

  • #80

    Ah ok i will look into it. thx
