About Chinchilla Critter Emote

This addon will have your non-combat pets do fun and random things.

When you have a pet out every so often  it will emote something fun.  You can also have your pets become more interactive by having them emote custom actions by using /ce instead of /emote.

Your pets will also now respond to the in game emotes.  Try /wave at your pet.

Your pet will do an emote between five and ten minutes as long as you are not in combat.
They might just do something different as well if you have something targeted.

If you find any typos, or mistakes please let me know and i'll fix them.

If you would like to add your own emotes edit the file CritterEmote_Emotes.lua
If you send them to me I'll add them into the main release :)

/ce - have your critter perform a random emote.
/ce <message> - have your critter emote your <message>.
/ce [options] - perform the various option:
[options] =
info  : displays Critter Emote information.
help  : displays this help.
off   : turns the random emote off.
on    : turns the random emotes back on.

If you have any ideas for new emotes please let me know.
Currently emotes can be in the following category:

Default - for all critters
type - subtype of critter ( cat )
name - specific pet ( Lil' K.T. )

Under each category there is
emote - such as /cry or /wave
random - anything
target - if something is targeted

    I added an update for the .lua file in the comments here at curse. :)

    I do love your addon. But all the spelling mistakes really make my pet (and its owner) look so ignorant:)

    "raises it's head in anger.", (it's used very often instead of its and vice versa)
    "tells you that your curiousity will be the death of you.", "is not squimish." { "fires out a mini celebatory firework." "coughs up a small cirtter.", "want's to go on an adventure.", "is intereseted in seeing Outland.", "rubs aginst your leg.", "would like to see if the story's about Netherstorm are true.", That was sarcasam.",}, "crys.", \"You are not prepard!\"",},( - wrong word spelling - curiosity, celebratory, squeamish, critter etc.)

    "would like to visit Tristfal Glades.", "would like to visit Northen Stranglethorn.", "would like to visit Karazan.", (misspelled zone names)

    And those are only some examples.

    Easy to make corrections, just edit /Interface/AddOns/CritterEmote/CritterEmote_Emots.lua with any text editor. Would suggest using Notepad++, as it will not intefere with formatting issues like Notepad will. I did a sweep of mine a few months ago for typo corrections, and added a few emotes of my own.

    Thanks for that.  I love the idea of the addon, but hate the many spelling and grammar errrors.  I can now add new emotes easily too.

  • #23

    Used to have this when I was on my windows box and had the curse client installed. Now I'm on Linux, no curse client, and have moved to wowinterface. Could this be added there, also? I just remembered it and came wandering back to find it. (had to get my password reset.) :)  Awesomely cute!

    Just want you to know, of all the add ons I have i enjoy yours the most - makes me smile every day!


  • #21

    Very cute! Though two suggestions:


    1. Much like petemote, it shouldnt display for me as "Lady Melanie Richard's Dark Whelping spins around." it should just say "Dark Whelping spins around." to me and/or possibly anyone else with CE installed. to outsiders, it can say all that.

    2. you should install /ce random so that way we can make a random emote happen on command.

  • #20

    Does other people see the emotes? :P

  • #19
    Great addon :) I was wondering if by chance there is a way for them to play one of their voice noises during some emotes like they do when you click on them?
  • #16
    Stills works 100% for me. Just load out of date addons and maybe increase the intervals at which it emotes, it's set to 5 by default, I changed mine to 2 minutes.

    Also I went into the .lua file to change + add new emotes for other things. Specifically for pets I almost always have out (Deathy, Searing Scorchling). Maybe I'll separate the new emotes for specific categories and send em so you can look them over :); maybe you can include this in future updates, when the critter itself does an emote you put "Derp's Deathy raises your fist at [target]". We all know that its Deathy himself doing this to the target but it still says "your". I went ahead and decided to male all of my pets male and replaced "your" with "his" so it reads "Derp's Deathy raises his fist at [target]" and it looks "normalized". Also is it super complex to make the pet actually interact with other players like it does with us? ie. When I wave to my pet, it waves back; but when someone else waves, he doesn't. Would it work if the person waving had the addon?


    I really LOVE this even though it's such a random addon. Whenever we come back from wipes and are just buffing up during raids my pet goes and says something completely random, and you get everyone in the raid laughing. A lot of people like this addon as well and have actually installed it.

  • #18
    How did you change the interval?
  • #17
    Also noticed some misspelss:
    Litch King
  • #15
    ever since 4.2 came out, my critter emote in game has been silent and WoW has deemed it "out of date".
  • #14
    I'm having the same issue as Derpo on version 1.5a. as for list of addons, I have all my addons favourited
  • #11
    FREAKING LOVE THIS! :) Works perfectly fine and it's so great to just see random emotes! Great job!
