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.

    Yes, I am trying to track that down. It's unclear whether I will continue to support the "aproximate catches to level" part though, since it's much more random now.

    Thanks!

    Some preliminary support for "fish without a pole equipped" and hopefully better behavior when in combat.

    Should be available soon under "Other Downloads".

    Easy cast is not working on my main even with all other add-ons disabled. Works on other toons. Not getting any error codes.

    Seeing an occasional error related to FB:

    ID: 1
    Error occured in: Global
    Count: 1
    Message: ..\AddOns\FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua line 75:
    script ran too long
    Debug:
    [C]: AddAllPetTypesFilter()
    FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua:75:
    FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua:68
    FishingBuddy\FishingFluff.lua:480: func()
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:482:
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:478
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:490:
    FishingBuddy\FishingBuddy.lua:489
    Locals:

    Given the name of the thing that's causing the error (Add all Pet Types Filter), I wonder if it has something to do with the number of pets I have?  On combining things to account-wide with 5.0.4, I ended up with nearly 700 pets, and I haven't gone through the list to clean up / cage / release the many duplicates.  If that's likely the cause, then feel free to disregard, as I'll be going through the list and caging/selling some duplicate pets and releasing the rest come next Tuesday-ish.

  • #2131

    Crap. I'll see what I can do here -- I may be able to use the filters and do things a piece at a time.

    I still have this problem! Any idea if it's gonna be fixed? :)

  • #2115
    Modifier keys?

    Does anyone use the "modifier key" option in FB? I'm thinking about hijacking it for the "fish without a pole" option -- you would cast "Fishing" if any of the following are true:

    You hold down a modifier (i.e. no outfit required), or you are wearing *any* Fishing gear.

    I would update the Fishing Outfit management (where possible) to not switch in the Fishing Pole if you don't need it for the bonus. And for "pool fishing" you just hold down a modifier key, no outfit needed.

    Does that sound reasonable? I'm going to throw together a beta with this feature shortly.

    Loot issue

    i love this addon, but since the last update about half the time i fish with FB i don't get the loot. like its as if i just walked instead of looting. it's super frustrating not to get half my catch. i'll enable it when another update comes out

  • #2114

    I have seen this occasionally, but I haven't been able to reproduce it. FB *shoudn't* be interfering with a single click, but I will see if I can put more of a guarantee around that.

  • #2116

    after i disabled FB it was still happening, so i think it may have just been an issue with wow. so i have it turned on again :) thanks for the reply though. i love this addon

  • #2106

    One problem with the latest update (1.0.9d)... It interferes with OneBag/OneBank3.

    With FB installed, I can't click on my bags, and the mouseover to highlight bags in the bagframe does not work. I'm not seeing any LUA errors.

    I don't use a lot of addons, and deactivating FB resolves the issue. Everything worked fine before the latest update.

    Unfortunately, I can't use FishingBuddy because of this. =(

  • #2111

    Thank you for the report, I will add it to my list of things to investigate!

    Edit: I have loaded OneBag3/OneBack3 and FB, and everything appears to work. Do any other addons seem to impact OneBag3?

    Sorry.. missed your reply..

    v1.1a seems to work fine with Onebag/Bank3

    Thanx!

    Hey mate, any chance of getting easycast to work with no pole equipped? Blizzard have made it so you dont even need to own a fishing pole to fish, but double-right-click wont cast unless I have a rod on :( ANy chance of a workaround or an option in the next update? (I know it'd cause problems when you're playing normally, but I personally would like to be able to switch the option on only when fishing, then turn it off when I do other stuff to prevent trying to fish in the middle of bosses, etc. :) )

  • #2108

    I am figuring out a way to do this now. It will require selecting something besides a fishing pole to determine that you wanted to fish -- the user interface is the hard part at the moment (although I have an idea I am working on now).
