About GupPet

What is GupPet:

GupPet is an add-on that gives an extension for mounting and calling critters. By a single click it mounts a ground, swimming or fly mount depending on the players location. Because most players have plenty of mounts and companions, and you probably like more than one, the add-on can randomly select mounts/companions depending on the selections in the option menu.

Basic Features:

  • Randomly selects a mount / companion location dependent.
  • Class support for Druids , Shamans and Mages
  • Automatically summons a companion
  • 3d model preview
  • Buttonfacade support
  • And many more !

In game usage:

There are 3 types of controls.

  • Action buttons (Adds buttons and are move, hide ,scale and Changeable .)
  • Key Binds
  • Slash Commands

How it works:

GupPet uses a small database to split the mounts that the player currently has learned. The splitting is based on type (ground, swimming or fly) and speed. When using the auto mount function the add-on will always try to select the fastest possible option, but if you can fly in an area the add-on select the flyable over the ground type. If your are swimming the aquatic will be selected above the other two types.

For the critters GupPet uses a small database to detect if a critter uses a type of reagent to call it, for some types you need a snowball. The add-on detects if you have that reagent with you and if not, the add-on won't select that type of critter.

Language support:

The languages that are currently supported are English , German ( Tnx to Farook at Curse) , Spanish ( Tnx to StiviS at Curse ) and Russian ( Tnx to StingerSoft at WowInterface.) With the none-supported languages the zone detection is not supported and therefore forces the two mount action buttons.

Commands

The start command is '/GP' or '/GupPet'. ( The mounting slash commands don't support abilities with spells )

Known Issues:

  • If you or a patch clears your WoW Cache folder, you may experience an invalid list of mounts or a failure to select some mounts for your first login after the cache was cleared. Try logging out and then back in.

    Druid GupPet

    The only thing forcing me to go back to Gogo mount is druids want it set where if you're standing still it will chose a random mount, but if you're moving it will choose a flight or travel form.  Gogo mount does that.  This one does not.  With this one you will have to choose in the options class "use flight form", which then takes off the random mount.

    Re: Druid GupPet

    This is an interesting concept.  I don't play a Druid, but my misses does and I can see how this would be cool.

    While not wanting to totally rip-off other addons, let me think about it...

    I'm a little busy at the moment with work and family (just had our 3rd child a bit over a month ago), but I do have some very quiet graveyard shifts at work coming up soon which I will be doing some programming.

    Of course any changes to the addon itself, not just the mounts database, I would need to run past Gupp as well.

    Thank you, Khali Shi, for taking this addon under your wing!

    Edit: If you haven't already, please consider my question in post #634, below. I have no idea if it's possible, but it would be an enhancement IMO. Thanks again!

    I've posted my reply below yours at #634 Cool

  • #640

    Thanks for the update!

  • #637

    Does this new version actually support Aspect of the Cheetah? The previous version didn't, despite my fiddling with it.

  • #639

    With this initial update, all I have done is updated the Mounts database.

    Over the next few weeks, I will be looking into other code updates.

    Updates

    I had sent a request to Gupp to add me as a maintainer to this addon, as it appears that he may be too busy to do minor updates.

    I know that feeling, I've been soo flat out with family and work that I missed Gupp's reply to me a month ago Embarassed

    Gupp has been kind & trusting enough of me, that he has allowed me access to this addons repository, so I can update it.

    I am hoping to release some updates shortly with the extra mounts and companions.

    Regards,
    Khali Shi

    I recently got a Worgen Druid to level 60 (thus I do not have any ground mounts). I bought the 3 gryphons available as well as Flight Form (buying Flight Form gave me Expert Riding) and the Flight Master's License. Every time I use the random mount button, it selects Travel Form, regardless of if "Use Travel Form while moving" is checked or not. It's not recognizing Flight Form ("Use Fly Form" has been checked on tries) or that I have 3 gryphons. Is this a bug? Or does anyone know what might be wrong or how to fix it?

    Thanks!

    I really love this addon!

    Does anyone know how to increase the delay slider for pet "Auto Call"? Currently the maximum delay I can set is 10 seconds. When I'm using a stealthing character (Cat Druid, Rogue) GupPet will sometimes try to call a pet in between killing one mob and attacking another; if the timing is bad, it will keep me from stealthing again or otherwise cancel another action I'm attempting. (I usually have Skinning on my characters, and it may take ten seconds to loot and skin a mob, then engage another one.)

    If I could set the delay to, say, 30 seconds, it would only auto-call a pet when I'm not in the middle of fighting a string of mobs. That way I could have pets out when I'm leveling, but not actively fighting.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Let me look into this...   sounds simple enough.

    Any changes to the addon itself, not just the mounts database, I would need to run past Gupp as well of course.

  • #633
    Done some little changes - it works. Thx :)

    You can add mounts to your own mounts list. In \World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\GupPet, open Gup_MountData.lua in a text editor. At the bottom of the list (I put it just under line 352 - the Frosty Flying Carpet), add this line:
    [98727]={[1]=true,[10]=true},--Winged Guardian

    You can do this for any mount that isn't listed - you just need the mount ID (and the name for the comment if you want it). But remember that if you update the file via Curse, it will be overwritten, so be sure to add those new mounts back to the list (unless the update added it for you).

    Happy playing!
