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.

    It sounds like you had added an item to your outfit that you were not yet able to use -- which outfit switcher did you have selected? There may be a bug in the "generate a fishing outfit for me" code.

  • #2351

    That's probably it then -- there's a bug somewhere in the automatic outfit creator that isn't finding the skill correctly. I will see if I can fix it (I've never run into it before, I guess I'll have to start a new toon for fishing :-)

  • #2350

    I just selected the in-game Equipment Manager from your drop down box. I dont use any other outfitter.

  • #2346

    I get an error prompt when trying to set focus targets statinf the cause is fishing buddy, normally reloading my UI will fix this but not always. Sorry no error report. :( The fishing tournament and mount features do not work as well as the fun feature doesn't work very often. I have the most current version installed. On the brighter side I wanted to thank you Surorix for taking the time to create and manage such an awesome addon

    Sometimes I get a:

    Yes, I am seeing that occasionally too. Since FB doesn't actually touch those frames, it's something to do with secure button templates. I'm trying to track it down!

  • #2375

    This is caused by broken taint when the built-in dropdown menus. This has been an issue forever, but got especially broken in the 5.1 patch. The only ways to avoid it currently are:

    • Don't use built-in drop-downs
    • Don't ever add more than 8 items to a drop down
    • Don't build drop downs until raid frames have been built (kinda impossible)
    It just sucks, for now at leats. It's a WoW bug, not an addon bug.
  • #2342

    I am working on putting school display support back in :-)

  • #2341

    How do I set FB to maintain the raft? I see no option for it and it doesn't appear to do it automatically.

  • #2343

    The primary option is to always turn on the raft. If you also select the "maintain" option, it will only cast the raft buff if it's already there, i.e. it will try not to let it time out :-)

  • #2344

    Unfortunately I don't see those options available. I've fished with FB active and the raft buff active. After 10 minutes, the raft buff disappears and FB seems to do nothing to refresh it. I have the latest version of FB. I also checked under FB Options->Fishing Fun and see nothing about a Raft there.

    [Edit] I reverted back to 1.2d and the raft appeared. I think perhaps that option wasn't also included in 1.2f. (As a side note: I only started using FB a few days ago, after 1.2f was released, so I didn't have the previous versions installed.)

    Is there any way for the addon to mark nodes of where you found fish schools on the (mini)map? I liked that Gathermate was able to do that so I can be reminded where they spawned and what schools spawned. 

  • #2338
