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).

    Works fine on my laptop also, but my home computer will not show me the particulars of what I have caught in the past.

  • #3069

    I am having problems with FB on one of my computers - it does not show the caught fish info.  It has time, location, quest completed, total/skill...but does not show what has been caught.  It works fine on my other computer.  Thanks...great addon.

  • #3072

    Darn it. I will see if I can figure something out. Thanks!

  • #3067

    Just found your brilliant addon today and it helps a lot in Draenor!

    Just one thing I miss compared to my old fishing macro: I´d love to sit down when I cast fishing. Maybe there´s a way to add a /sit command to the fast fishing routine?

    Thanks so much or all your good work!

  • #3068

    I will see what I can do ;-)

  • #3066
    Fishing Buddy v1.5.6
    • Remove max lunker alert sound
    • Update to latest LibTourist

    Since it seems like you can have lunkers without limits, there's no need to warn anyone. If I manage to hit a new limit, I will put it back :-P

  • #3062

    The double click dosn't make me start fishing, any help?

    Yes "Easy Cast" is enabled.

  • #3064

    If you have a fishing pole equipped, double-click will cast.

    If you don't have a fishing pole equipped. you need to:

    • Set the "Casting Button" to something besides "Right Mouse Button", or
    • Use the "Easy Cast" modifier key

    Without these restrictions, it becomes almost impossible to use the Blizz UI :-)

  • #3065

     

    Thanks! Works now. :)

  • #3059

    Hey! As always: Thanks for the great work.

    I'm playing with the german client. When I catch a Felmouth Frenzy Lurker now, a male voice appears, saying "Work completed" (in german). Is this intended? The other Lurkers are announced by playing the Quest-Completed-Sound.

  • #3060

    It is supposed to play the "Work Completed" sound only when you have five of that kind of lunkers (since you can't catch any more). It should still be working (adding the Felmouth shouldn't have broken it), but I will check.

  • #3063

    I will remove that in the next patch -- I'm thinking of making it play when you have enough for the next item you haven't bought from Nat :-)

  • #3061

    Alright. That explains alot. Just checked it: It works the way you intended.

    It played the "work completed" sound every time, because I had about 25 Felmouth Frency Lunkers in my bag. Those don't have the limitation on them and I can catch and carry as many felmouth frency lunkers as i want.

  • #3058
    Fishing Buddy v1.5.5
    • Add Felmouth Frenzy support
    • Update to latest LibBabble-SubZone

    Still working on "double click the bobber" - the message ordering may have changed (or something), I can't get it to work at all anymore.

     

  • #3052

    Having a problem with my tracking screen. I can get it to pull up with /fb fishing start, but as soon as I catch the first fish, it disappears immediately. I had been using it for several days with no issue sitting in the same zone (fishing for Old Crafty, just logged in and stayed put and fished, then logged out), but last night I went around Kalimdor to work on the Fire Festival quests. When I logged back in this morning and went to Orgrimmar to fish, the frame was gone. Typing '/fb fishing start' brings it up, but as soon as I cast the first time and loot the bobber, it is gone. Any idea on how I can fix this? I didn't want to re-install FB and lose the data of all the fishing I have already done trying to get this stupid achievement lol. Thanks!
