About Fishing Buddy

Fishing Buddy
-------------

A fishing addon that keeps track of the fish you catch and helps manage your fishing gear.

Features:
- Double-click fishing
- Supports the new WoW "fish without a pole" feature
- Bring out your fishing pets! Drink heavily!
- 'Fish Watcher' lets you see the fish you've caught here before (or the fish that you've caught in the current session)
- Display your current skill level and the time since you started fishing
- Choose your fishing outfit and change into it easily
- Support for automatically adding a lure to your fishing pole
- Support for tracking 'cycle fish' such as the Nightfin Snapper so you know when to go looking for them

Example commands:
/fishingbuddy or /fb
toggle the display of the Fishing Buddy window
/fb help
print the list of Fishing Buddy commands
/fb switch
wear your chosen fishing outfit, or change back

Silly stuff:
In addition to displaying the fishing bonus for your fishing outfit, it also displays your 'style points' as inferred from Draznar's Fishing FAQ (http://wow.toshimo.com/viewtopic.php?t=272).

Installation
------------

1. Unzip the 'FishingBuddyVERSION.zip' file
2. If your unzip program allows you to specify a location, then unzip it into the 'Interface/AddOns' folder contained in your WoW folder (the location that WoW was installed)
3. If your unzip program doesn't let you specify the destination, then find your WoW folder (where it was installed) and drag the 'FishingBuddy' folder into the 'Interface/AddOns' folder.

    We are no longer confused about where in time we are, so we know how hard it is to fish.

    When ever I use the clean up bag option my game will freeze for a second or two. I narrowed down the cause to be Fishing Buddy causing my game to freeze up when using that new feature for my inventory. If I turn off FIshing Buddy no more lag...anyone else experience this?

    Thanks

    Issues with double-click casting in inland Draenor waters.

    I`m playing with client options "Show Helm" and "Show Clock" disabled. Every time after switching from fishing gear to general gear this options became enabled. So I must redisable they manualy. Do You have any suggestion? I was trying switch gear with and without  "Show helm" and "Show clock in Fishing Buddy. No matter. All the same...

    Same here.

    Outland - Nagrand and Draenor - Nagrand are being combined into one zone. I now suspect there are other cases as well (fishing skill needed = 375 somewhere in Draenor, I'll report back where when I see it again on I can upload my savedvariables which should make it obvious).

    I'm using 1.4i.

    Thanks for the report -- I have been looking at that. With the duplication of the names, the LibTourist logic is a bit more complicated to make sure we have the "right" Nagrand. A simple matter of more code in the right place :-)

    With v1.4h I still have the problem with helm display that I posted about previously. As a reminder (and to save digging back to find my previous post about this) I'll explain again.

    I have the main "Show Helm" option disabled and FB's OutfitDisplay overrides that to display the Fishing Hat when I equip my fishing outfit, but now, every time I un-equip my fishing outfit the game's Show Helm option is enabled and I have to open the game options and disable it. This happens on every character regardless of whether they actually have a Fishing Hat for FB to equip. For those characters FB still removes their helm when I click to equip their fishing gear and will then re-equip their helm when I click again to un-equip their fishing gear. It's just that FB is no longer disabling the main "Show Helm" option when un-equipping fishing gear as it used to!

    Will post back to report whether 1.4i either fixes this issue or not.

    Same problem here. And it re-display the cape too.

    It seems Fishing Buddy prefers lures in my bag rather than my Nat's Fishing Hat, even though the hat increases my skill more. Is this intended?

    Thanks for the great addon :)

    Fishing Buddy v1.4j Beta 1
    • Make sure Nat's Hookshot is applied whenever we're doing the Lunker quest
    • Use the Worm Supreme, if we need it to get over 950
    Working towards full bait management.

    Fishing Buddy v1.4i
    • One last "boolean instead of 1" error in the locations frame
    • Latest version of LibTourist (hacked for 950 skill everywhere)

    Okay, I think that's the last place I use a "1/0" instead of "true/false" when dealing with checkboxes.

    Plus, the latest version of LibTourist, with a hack to set all of the skill levels t6o 950 in Draenor -- which ought to force the "rigth" lure behavior. Still playing with this to get the best set up.

    Next, all of the specialized lures in Draenor...
