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.

    Another useful sorting feature would be to just put the current zone/subzone first and only then sort the rest alphabetically. That way we always get the current's zone statistics first.

    One reason why I am looking at these even with the watcher enabled is that the Nat Pagle quest fish are not listed with percentages in the watcher while in the full list they are.

    Just in case you insist on the about credits: Credit it to "Weissrolf", which is the moniker I am using for most online gaming now. But again, it's not really necessary.

  • #2719

    Thanks. No need to give credits since you're doing all the work anyway. ;)

  • #2718

    Great suggestions! I am reworking the whole fish collection piece, I will add these in (and give you credit in the About as well, of course!)

  • #2713

    Still getting the fish watcher stuck on in 1.4c.

    FYI

  • #2714

    What does "stuck" mean? It's in the middle of the screen? If so, move the mouse over it for a few seconds, and then drag it to where you want it when the tab shows up.

    ## Version: 1.4c just installed this one and it appears to be working much better. 

    Thank you

  • #2712

    Excellent!

    Fishing Buddy v1.4c

    The watcher window should behave much better now!

    • Don't try to summon fishing pets if we're in combat
    • Make sure we autoloot things that we're opening automatically
    • Better handling when both Angler's Raft and Bipsi's Berg are available
    • Fix for Curse bug #231 "Watcher not toggling off automatically"

    Something strange going on.   FB is somehow messing up my UI.  When I stop fishing and rearm my toons, the status window remains "on" and right clicking does nothing with regard to movement.  If I use the command M combo on my Mac and get the widow to shrink, WoW now evidently is resetting the UI and things get back to normal when I grow the window back; i.e. FB appears to be gone.  However, even after this reset, I sometimes can not use right click to move. To get consistant game play, I have to either turn FB off in addons window or delete the addon.

     

  • #2710

    Ah. Yes -- ckicj-to-move is turned off while "fishing is active". Since you're using the fishing without a pole feature, click-to-move might be okay to leave on.

    I will have to experiment.

  • #2708

    Which version are you using? The beta has some improvements to the watcher that hopefully fix those issues. If you are using the beta, could you file a ticket? :-)

    Thanks,
