About Farmhand

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.

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!

Thanks as well to the Farmhand users who've made great suggestions:

    Thank perfect now :)

    Sure I can add a switch for it. I'll also look for an auctioneer tooltip and offset mine to the side of it. Look for an update tomorrow.

  • #80

    This is one of the BEST addons I've ever used with WoW. Thanks and please keep up the development of it.

  • #79

    I don't get any onscreen comments anymore, likw before. The stuff like 'all is ok' or 'some crops need attentions'. Is it intentional that it's not there anymore or? Was a nice feature anyway.


    LOL, nvm, didn't notice it's in options now!

    Thanks again for this awesome addon!

    The scanner is broken after this last update. Clicking it does nothing.

    What language are you using? Have you tried to completely uninstall and reinstall the addon?

    New version v1.2

    Added buttons for Portal Shards. They don't have anything to do with daily farming activities of course. On the other hand they can only be used on the farm, so it's something you might want to see. In any case, you can turn the portal shard buttons on or off.

    Added Hide In Combat option (To get Farmhand out of your way when you're killing those wascally virmen.)

    Moved all the option check boxes to the interface options UI. It was getting a bit out of hand having all those check boxes stuck to the sides of the buttons. It was also getting rather distracting every time I'd hit the shift key.

    You should no longer inadvertently "click" a button when you were just trying to move it.

    I also cleaned up and refactored the code. Pretty major overhaul under the hood just for the sake of maintainability but functionality should still be solid.

    Thanks JCinDE for the Text/Sound alert options, much appriciated. :)

  • #73

    I'm adding support for the Unstable Portal Shard, which is the name of the "seed" as well as the name of the "crop" after you "plant" it. I'm also adding an optional row of icons which will hold the resulting city portal shards.

    Translators: That means there are new strings. Sorry!


  • #71

    Is it possible to have an option to disable the chat spam/raid warnings?  Clicking the Crop Scanner floods my chat window and all the raid warnings splashing on my screen.  Also maybe a sound file to play when all the "crops are looking good".

    The raid markers are the main thing that you need to see, but to me... having raid warnings and chat warnings going off is a little much.  It makes it all seem too busy and takes away from what you are actually doing and the simplicity of the addon.

    I can add a "Quiet" option, sure. I kind of like the output. It makes it feel more like the addon is doing something. Wink

    Oh jeeez, this so cool! /runsfortesting

    I had been working on a way to eliminate the need for multiple clicks for French and other noun-adjective languages. I succeeded in doing so and that opened the door to doing much more with the scanner including marking multiple targets at once.

    Version 1.10 will put an icon on up to 8 different plants with one click. Please note that the scanner still relies on targeting macros and as such can still only find one of any given crop, that being the closest to your character. That's not so bad when you consider that the target icons are also limited in that you can only have one NPC at a time with a given icon. That means if you have 8 crops with all different statuses, you'll see all 8 icons.

    Here are the icon assignments:

    • {STAR} = Runty
    • {CIRCLE} = Bursting (or Smothered if there are no Bursting crops)
    • {DIAMOND} = Wild
    • {TRIANGLE} = Infested (or Stubborn Weed if there are no Infested crops)
    • {MOON} = Alluring
    • {SQUARE} = Parched
    • {CROSS} = Tangled
    • {SKULL} = Wiggling (or Occupied Soil if there are not Wiggling crops)

    Because Wiggling and Occupied mean Virmen and all Virmen must die!

    Translators: Some of the localized strings have changed. I've done my best to update them with the help of Wowhead and Google Translate. Please review them and feel free to update them if necessary.

    Please split macro by types and mark vegetables by different marks:

    • to kill (skull)
    • to water (blue square)
    • to spray (green triangle)
    • to pull out (whatever)
    For example if no blue squares so i don't need to click my irrigation system. 

    PS: and add Bursting in case someone miss them. Smile
