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.

    Darn it. Okay, I will play with it until I get it to work. Good thing I'm just as clueless in Spanish. :-)

    I know you are working on implementing the musical hat dance, but I was wondering about a similar algorithm for poles? I got an Ephemeral Fishing Pole but didn't read the fine print so I got rid of my +30 pole. Now the Ephemeral Fishing Pole has vanished and I'm getting a replacement, but if I get another EFP, I'd like to use that while I have it and revert to the +30 when it expires.

    Combine that with the new poles that have a 10 minute buff with a 20 minute cooldown and it looks like a FB musical pole dance will be needed to complement the musical hat dance! 

  • #2859

    Yep. I have a preliminary version in the beta of FB OutfitDisplay. Working on the best way to handle it overall.

  • #2855

    Firstly awesome addon, glad someone introduced me sorry Fishermans friend..

    So I like to use the lure on Nat's Hat rather than Worm Supreme from my bags, but often I am wearing a Tenticle Hat which is in my Outfitter profile so I often do a little manual shuffle and apply my Hat lure manually is there a good way to do this or am i being over crazy? :)

  • #2856

    I am working on that -- my goal is to not use any "real" lures at all, if at all possible. But it will require a hat trick :-)

    (I had all three hats in my inventory at the same time, so I think that's funny, anyway :-)

  • #2857

    Awesome to hear it, then we have the extra rod issue (not that I am getting for that a bit land shark first).

  • #2854

    I'll try again with 1.4o but with 1.4n I was getting the proper bait applied in Gorgrond but it was not applying a lure from either my hat (Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat, +75) or my bags (Sharpened Fish Hook, +100).

    Update: 1.4o doesn't have the problem.

    Fishing Buddy v1.4o
    • Add an option to control the application of "Draenor bait"
    • More work on cleaning up all of the old lure code to handle all of the new situations
    If you are running into issues where you are getting the wrong kind of bait, please let me know what subzone you were in (and the language of your client). Walking all the way around Draenor is fraught with issues, and I'm sure I have marked some subzones incorrectly -- but there shouldn't be very many.

    This should be fixed in 1.4o

    Thanks!

  • #2849

    I get the same error. This happens when recasting your lure while you already have it casted.

  • #2845

    I want to turn off that zone based lures, it's wasting my lures that I want to use by applying other that I don't

    IE. I was doing fishing daily for abyssal gulppers and it kept applying the seas scorpion bait everytime i got one, overwriting my desired bait.

    PLEASE add a toggle to disable this functionality

    This is working for me -- are you in a Horde or Alliance garrison?

    Option added for Draenor bait in 1.4o.

    Which hat are you wearing?
