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.

Version 1.4c
- Don't try to summon fishing pets if we're in combat
- Make sure we autoloot things that we're opening automatically
- Better handling when both Angler's Raft and Bipsi's Berg are available
- Fix for Curse bug #231 "Watcher not toggling off automatically"

Version 1.4b
- Get my act together with respect to watch window location (thanks Grizzly_UK!)

Version 1.4a
- More work on keeping the watcher visible and onscreen (using LibWindow)
- Handle version changes and per-player settings correctly
- Fix an issue with LibTourist where it doesn't check for esMX

Version 1.4
- Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
- Attempted fix for 64-bit crash bug (#227) by using PLAYER_ALIVE
- Remove invalid frame reference in watcher window (Curse #229)
- Add "/fb fishdata reset" to clear out all fish location data (#127)
- More work on the watcher frame to try and make it stay on screen all the time

    Where is the option to use the spear and raft? My settings page looks like it always has with no new features?

  • #2337

    If you have the raft or the spear in your inventory, it should show up in the "Fishing Fun" tab (at the top).

  • #2340

    nope its not there anymore  in your last  Fishing Buddy 1.2f  release :/

     

  • #2333

    Is this addon a competitor to Fishing Ace?

     

    How do they compare, doesn't this addon have all Fishing Ace's Features as well?

  • #2334

    I wrote Fishing Ace! for people who wanted just the double-click casting support, plus the "simple" enhancements for fishing -- auto lure, auto loot, and sound management.

    Fishing Buddy has a built-in fish database, plugins for extra functionality, "fun stuff" like automatic drinking if you have Captain Rumsey's Lager in your inventory, automatic use of Pandaren fishing items, etc. -- a lot of extras that enough people *didn't* want, so I wrote a very simple version as well.

    Fishing Buddy has all the features of Fishing Ace! plus more stuff :-)


  • #2331

    I get no LUA error or anything other than the Red MSG that i either need to equip a pole(guess its trying to attach a lure) or didn't land in fish-able water or i drink the captains lager(so not happy bout that) and i DON'T have a Fishing pole equipped (but i have the weather beaten hat on - hey its stats! )

    i was wondering if Fishing buddy activates on just the pole or a fishing "Outfit" and if its activated off the hat is there a way to disable it for Pole use only?

  • #2332

    Yes, there's a twink setting :-)

    Turn off the "Partial Outfit" option and it will require a fishing pole to cast (or the command key override). Since Blizz now has the "fishing without a pole" mode, and FB supports that.

    Perfect 1.2d release

    Thank you Fishing Buddy for many years of being an awesome fishing buddy. I have donated.

  • #2326

    Thank you! There are often days where getting a donation makes it much easier to try and figure out why it doesn't work for somebody when it works perfectly fine "on my machine" :-)

    The newest version is still very broken.  I am turning it off again.  In response to the comments I got before, there are so many errors, it seems like spam to post them all, but here they are:

    I dont get as many errors as croana, but I have the exact errors, RaidFrames 5,6,7.

  • #2327

    That's weird, as far as I know, I don't touch Raid frames. I will see about doing some more raids and see if I can figure it out. (I don't see it myself, in normal use).

  • #2316
    Fishing Buddy v1.2d

    - Add option to just "maintain" the raft if it's already on, i.e. manual engagement
    - Support the Sharpened Tuskaar Spear (ugly, but it works for now)
    - Fix the minimap icon setting, again
    - Updated LibTourist to the latest version
    - Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
    - Fix summon pet errors -- BUT PETS DON"T WORK YET
    - Fix Curse bugs #206, #207, #208 

    PETS DO NOT WORK YET -- Blizz changed a lot of the pet support so I will need to go back and redo the pet management.

  • #2320

    Thank you very much for the fast work. I'll give the new version a test soon and will try to remember to return later to report the results! ;)
