About GatherMate2

GatherMate2 is an addon to collect and track herbs, mines, fishing pools, gas clouds, archaelogy finds and treasures, and displays them on the world map and the mini map.

GatherMate will remember the location of every herb you pick or every ore you mine, so that you can easily find the positions of the herbs and mines again. Once you come into range of a recorded spot, GatherMate will show an icon representing the type of herb/ore/fish/etc. on your mini map, directly allowing you to decide if its worth checking out. Additionally, all spots are shown on the World Map, to ease navigation to certain types of nodes and making gathering more fun.

To give you a head start, GatherMate2 also offers a pre-filled data module, so you don't need to discover all herbs and mines yourself, but instead can just start gathering right away. Simply install GatherMate2_Data and hit a few buttons to import all the provided data, and you're good to go.

Video about configuring this addon.


Using GatherMate2 is straight-forward.
After the installation, GatherMate2 is automatically active and collecting data.

You can configure which data should be shown on the World Map or MiniMap in the Configuration Dialog, which can be accessed either via the /gathermate slash command or be found in the Interface options in the WoW Menu.

    Since the auther decided to change the addon name from GatherMate to GatherMate2, the nodes outlines no longer show up on the HUD map without a coding modification.

    This code change is posted by Impurator at this link

    Can the authur implement a change so that a call to GatherMate:GetModule("Display") has a depricated function to actually call GatherMate2:GetModule("Display") to make this addon backward compatible since the name has changed.

    This doesn't affect my post below as I'm using the exact same add-ons on two accounts with one showing active nodes and the other doesn't. It might be a conflict but I'm not sure what that could be as I have the same add-ons on both accounts. In fact, I renamed the Interface folder from the account that doesn't work and copied the Interface folder from the one that does work with no success. I deleted the Cache folder with no success. The active nodes will simply not show. This is getting frustrating as it's a great add-on which I have used from most of my WOW gaming. :(

    I have two accounts, running the exact same addons including GatherMate2, GatherMate2_Data and GatherMate_Sharing, all updated versions as downloaded from Curse. I logged into two toons on separate accounts, both with Mining and Herbalism professions as well as one is Horde and the other is Alliance. I had both at the same coordinates in Arathi Highlands within range of an active Mine and active Herb node since I can physically see the Mine and Herb. One shows it as active and the other shows it as inactive.

    On the account not showing the active nodes, I uninstalled all GatherMate addons and reinstalled via Curse. No luck. I physically removed the GatherMate folders from the Interface/Addons folder, downloaded and install the GatherMate addons physically. No luck. I physically removed the GatherMate folders and then copied the GatherMate folders from the 'working' accounts Interface / Addons folder. No luck.

    Remember, I have compared both accounts and ensured they were running the exact same addons on both toons with one exception. The alliance is running Spellflash - Druid and the horde is running Spellflash - Rogue which should NOT be an issue.

    Any suggestions?

    FYI, Nodeflash also doesn't show the active nodes. I don't know if that gives any insight since I have copied the working Interface folder to the 'non-working' WOW folder.

    all libmapdata issues have been resolved. I had just forgotten to repackage for 4.2 release
  • #345
    I get libmapdata error spam whenever i enter firelands. it wont stop unless i disable the addon which makes it pointless to have the addon in the first place.

    please fix this you addon is the better than the rest IMO :)) keep up the good work! and thank you.

    Anyone know why i cant seem to import the Gathermate2 Data?
  • #336
    There's an update - 1.15 posted. Have to manually push it via website for today. Looks like the date is set for 7/1, so it would be on the curse client tomorrow.

    Quick Fix, based on one provided by PerrinGaiden over on the comments page for LibMapData-1.0 (which is embedded in Gathermate2)

    2. Open library.lua with notepad (PC) or textedit (Mac)
    3. Copy the code below and insert it after Line 965

    mapData[795] = {
    ['floors'] = 3, ['name'] = "Firelands", ['rzti'] = 0, ['map_type'] = 2, ['continent'] = 0, ['transform'] = 0,
    [1] = {0,0,1,1}, [2] = {0,0,1,1}, [3] = {0,0,1,1},

    4. Profit!

    NOTE: The original fix says to put 800 in where I have 795. If you have a different number showing up in your error spam, use that number instead. 795 is the number that kept coming up in my error spam. If you have multiple numbers showing up in your error spam, well then Elune help you because I got nothin' for ya.

    This is not an authorized fix, so use at your own risk. But it's so minor it really shouldn't break anything.

    When can we expect an update of this nice addon?
  • #331
    update for 4.2 plz :)
  • #329
    I entered Firelands today through the Thrall questchain and Gathermate absolutely had a heart-attack as soon as I entered, spamming LibMapData 1.0 is missing...I believe the number was 749. At first I thought it was mapster or crom but only after I shut off Gathermate did the spam stop.
  • #332
    I am also having this issue. Will be quite an issue when we all can go directly to Firelands in a couple days, everyday, for daily quests.
  • #330
    Same, entering Molten Front or Firelands causes LibMapData 1.0 to spam its missing the map.
  • #328
    I'm wondering if there is a way to have an "on/off" button for the mini-map either as an ldb or mini-map button. I know it can be done through options but I was wondering if there was a quicker more accessible way to do it.
    Thanks for the addon
