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:

    Thing is, you don't need to be at Halfhill to use the Cooking Bell... could be good if it popped up when you logged in and hadn't yet done the quest today, though

    Hey, I LOVE this addon!
    Also, I was going to fiddle with your code to make a similar addon that recognizes all types of food in my bags and display them in a similar bar (as a holy/ret pally I have to keep multiple kinds of food and banquets on hand).

    However, I am a programming idiot and Farmhand has enough features that I can't make it work. I was able to add the food IDs to the "seeds" category in data.lua but that doesn't help me when I'm away from Halfhill. ;)

    Any advice on an addon that would do such a thing, or advice on making a Farmhand hack that would do it?

    Check out AutoBar

    Is there any way to move where FarmHand shows up on the screen?  Would love the ability to put it someplace other than right in the middle of my screen.

  • #168

    Stopped using this addon. Was exactly what I was looking for but having it in the middle of my screen with no option to move it was just too annoying. Wish the author had replied to my post for help.

  • #169

    Hold shift and click-drag on any of the buttons. The addon description above has included this tip from the start. :)

  • #164

    I've noticed a few problems since 5.2 - firstly the seed bags are showing strange numbers (says things like 74 even though I only have 1 or 2) & if I have my hearth set as the farm, when I log in there it seems that Farmhand doesn't notice I'm at the farm & doesn't display. Reloading the UI and/or flying out of the zone & back in doesn't work. Only way to fix it is to log out and back in.

  • #165

    The seed bag button should show the total number of charges of all of the seed bags (of each type) in your inventory. If you have two carrot seed bags, one with 7 charges and one with 8, the button for the carrot seed bag will show 15.

    I also have my hearth set to the farm and as yet I haven't seen the issue you describe. Make sure it's happening with the newest version (v1.6) and make sure it happens even if Farmhand is the only addon you have enabled. Let me know and I'll try to help.

    When showing the vegetable icon on the seed bag buttons, the vegetables are shown with a small seed bag icon on the top right side.

    The special seed bags - eg the enigma seed - don't have that indicator

  • #156

    This is intentional just to make it easy to tell a seed from a seed bag if you're using the icon override options.

    You'll also notice that seeds that don't grow into vegetables show their seed icons in place of the bag icon when the option is enabled.

  • #163

    Yeah I've decided no nix it. Not many folks I think will have multiples of the same type of seed bag and as long as you aren't moving them around in your bags it will always choose the same one. It goes through each bag 0-3 starting with your backpack, slot by slot and uses the first seed bag of the given type that it finds.

  • #162

    Yep; I can understand - makes localization a pain.

    Having it pick the seed bag with the lowest number of charges is a "nice to have" I think - if you can't find a way to do it cleanly then it'll be fine.

  • #160

    I think I see the issue now. Should be fixed in next beta. I have to decide whether to keep the "smart" item search. I really don't like relying on scanning localized tooltip text.

  • #159

    I like the idea, its just that the enigma seed bags weren't showing the icon. From testing today I can see that the first seed bag you have displayed on the item bar has the bag icon shown, but other ones do not.

  • #154

    Thank you so much for the support of seed bags! :)
