About Farmhand

Description
Farmhand adds dynamic buttons on the screen while you are at Sunsong Ranch.

The buttons allow quick access to the Plow, Shovel, Bug Spray and Watering Can if they are in your inventory. If you do not have a given item, there will be no button for it. Also adds buttons for seeds that are in your inventory. You can even sell unwanted seeds at a vendor without having to open your bags.

When you leave Halfhill, any tools remaining in your inventory will be dropped. You can pick them up again at the farm. (You can disable this feature.)

A special Crop Scanner tool will let you quickly find any plants you've overlooked that need special attention. (Very hand for the hard-to see Smothered and Runty plants.)

To move the buttons, hold SHIFT and drag a button with the left mouse button.

In the Interface Options panel, you can turn on/off tool dropping, turn on/off chat messages and sounds, turn on/off the portal shard buttons and control whether Farmhand automatically hides itself during combat.

I recommend using Masque (optional) to make your buttons pretty.

Localization
Farmhand has translations for all game-supported locales, but if you see a bad translation please visit the localization page and correct it. Then let me know so I can repackage the addon to pick up the changes.

Thanks to all the translators!

    Beta version v1.5b1 is available. There are just a few new strings for translation, but they're not critical.

    Seeds Bags are in.
    Optional Misc Tools (currently just the School Bell and Hearthstone) are in
    Optional DataStore stock tips is in

    Side note: Those seed bags. They seemed like such a good idea until I started using them and realized they just make the bag space problem worse.

  • #128

    The one good thing about the seed bags is the ability to plant four plots at once quickly. If you target it correctly. It's possible to miss a plot with the AoE targetting!

    The downside is that the charges on the bags aren't divisible by four - so you end up starting a new planting set with only two charges on the bags. Most annoying!

  • #125

    FYI: The update will be finished soon.

    So far I have the seed bags working. It wasn't just a matter of adding them to the data.lua because they have charges. I have the seed bags showing the stock tips in the merchant window. And I think I have support for miscellaneous tools like the school bell.

    Lastly I'm working on optional integration with Altoholic to display guild bank and alt data in the stock tips.

    I'll get it packaged as a beta and pushed out later today.

    added Spanish LA  (esMX) translations, hope you can include on the next update.

    Thank you for a great addon !

  • #121

    Love this addon, only thing I think I can add is w/ the addition of "bags of * seeds", it would be nice if you could add buttons for these for quicker planting!

    Thanks,

    Pat

  • #123

    Yes the seed bags will be in the next update.

  • #120

    every time I enter the farm and do not have the weapon star shatter equiped the weapon will get destroyed. I think it might have something to do with this addon. if you could look in to it I would appreciat it

  • #122

    That's very strange. The addon checks and double checks that the items it is dropping are only the farm tools. If you are seeing other items getting destroyed I can only guess there might be a conflict with another mod. Try disabling all other mods but Farmhand and see if it happens

    Suggestion: What to plant

    How about monitoring Auctioneer data for prices of crops (including the special seeds) and reporting a ranked list of prices and seed costs, so we know what crop will give us the best return?

    Add to that the ability to share the crop of the day report among addon users and one could know if that crop would result in more profit than an otherwise more lucrative crop.

  • #118

    Exactly what I was looking for! THANK YOU! :)

  • #114

    Great addon, thank you very much.

    One request, when leaving the farm the Earth-Slasher Master Plow does not get removed from inventory.  If that is simply updating a file with the item name, which file?

  • #115

    If you have an item named "Earth-Slasher" Master Plow then you need to right click it and accept the quest to have the master plow installed at the ranch. The "Earth-Slasher" Master Plow item is different from the actual plow that you use on the farm.

  • #117

    Wow, completely my bad here.  I had tested by going to the market.  After I read through your lua files I realized it doesn't drop until you actually leave Halfhill, not just the farm.  The Plow does get deleted as it should.

    my appologies and thanks again for a great add-on.

    The Earth-Slasher Master Plow becomes an item that you pick up and use just like the Rusty Water Can or Vintage Bug Sprayer; not a clickable installed item like the Jinyu Princess Irrigation System or the Thunder King Pest Repellers.  It can be picked up and deleted from inventory.

  • #112

    Right. So v1.4 is available. I made an attempt to address the vendor error issue. It's sort of a blind stab at fixing it since I was never able to reproduce it.

    v1.4 should also pick up the new translations. Thank you all for your help on that!

    Edit: I'll try to spend some time on new features like the school bell, guild bank and the new farm items in 5.2 in the coming weeks.
