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).

Fishing Buddy Plugins:

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.

    Crap. That makes no sense. Possibly Blizz changed something in 5.1 -- I will see what I can do.

    Thanks!

  • #2304

    Hmm, whatever changes you did seems to have brought back the memory leak.  Watching fishing buddy go from using only 2.0MB go all the way up to 60MB and then resets.  I'm not sure if it's also responsible for the wow client crashing to desktop during a raid encounter.

    Thanks for the report, I will see if I can figure out what's going on!

    Fishing Buddy 1.2d Beta

    Version 1.2d Beta 1
    - 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

    The Tuskaar Spear "works", but the code to make it happen is really ugly, so I may rewrite it all again :-)

    Version 1.2d Beta 2
    - 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!)

     The raft should work again.

  • #2300

    I hate to say this... but for some reason, 1.2c stopped using Nat's Hat.

    I'm standing in Kun-Lai, fishing Reef Octopus, and keep getting Sickly Fish and stuff.

    Although I have activated the "always lure" option, Fishing Buddy doesn't use the Hat.

     

    *EDIT*

    OK, Nat's Hat is being used, but it seems Fishing buddy simply doesn't recognize gray loot.

    When im Fishing in 'Vale of Eternal Blossoms' it uses the Hat automatically.

    It may be an issue with the LibTourist data for the fishing level, I will look into it!

  • #2299

    Fishing Buddy does not show in bazooka addon somehow.
    Bazooka Issue or FB issue ?

  • #2303

    I don't use Bazooka, but I will look into it.

    Edit: It seems to work fine for me -- I had to go turn the "text" on in the options, but it showed up. I will see about integrating "better" with bazooka in the future.

    For some odd reason the mini-map button wont go away.  I De-select it in the options, but still the button remains around the mini-map.
