About Pokedex

CHANGES FOR 5.1.02 - PROFILE SUPPORT

Support for all the normal ace3 profile stuff (change current, copy, etc) is now added, with a couple of twists so that you can have the benefits of sharing a profile and still be able to make character specific tweaks. See http:www.wowace.com/addons/pokedex/pages/profiles/ for more info. There's also new support for Warlocks water walking with Soulburned Unending Breath or using Burning Rush when regular mounts can't be summoned.

USING POKEDEX - THE SHORT VERSION

The games Key Binding UI will contain a section for Pokedex. The only two commands you'll probably want or need to keybind are Toggle Mount and Summon Companion. Pokedex configuration can be reached through the games addons menu or by typing /pd. The full list of commands can be found at http://www.wowace.com/addons/pokedex/pages/main/actions/.

ADDON DESCRIPTION

Pokedex allows random summoning of mounts and companions using preference values set by user to influence selection. Pokedex will summon appropriate mount based on what the current location supports. Pokedex can also randomly set character's title using the same basic ranking system.

The chance of a particular item (mount, companion or title) being selected is equal to the rank you have assinged to it divided by the total of the ranks for all other elligible items. Put another way, each point of ranking is one ticket to the raffle drawing to see which mount is selected. If all items are still set to the default value, then they all have an equal chance of being selected. An item which you have assigned a value of 0 will never be selected.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The New Hotness - The idea behind this feature is that your most recently acquired pet/mount/title is something you're probably excited about and what to see more often than the rest of your collection. Or maybe you want to flaunt it in front of the all the people who are still trying to get, for example, their Sinister Squashling. When dealing with large numbers of pets or mounts, even setting it to ten will not cause it to show up very often. So rather than make you downrank every other item, the hotness feature acts as a way to get that one pet out more often. If there is a hot pet, we'll first do a percentile roll against the heat of hot item. If the heat is set to 50, then 50 percent of the time we would summon that hot pet. The other 50 percent of the time, we'll do the usual random selection out of the weighted pet pool.

Safe Dismount - This feature is disabled by default but can be turned on in Pokedex's options ui. This feature allows you to keep as a default behavior that of having the Auto Dismount in Flight option turned off, so that accidently trying to cast a spell in flight won't send you plummeting to your death, but allows you to choose override scenarios where you do want actions to dismount you automatically so that they can be executed. The scenarios you can opt into are 1) when you are in combat, 2) targeting something attackable or 3) attempting to gather a resource via mining, herbalism or skinning.

Random Titles - You can also rank titles the way you do pets and mounts and have Pokedex periodically change your title.

Auto summon pet - You can have Pokedex summon a non-combat pet, if you don't already have one out, everytime you dismount or change zone.

Druid forms, Ghost Wolf and Burning Rush support - Pokedex supports using Druid forms, Shaman Ghost Wolf and Warlock Burning Rush in the appropriate situations as part of the Toggle Mount command.

autocast Water Walking when mounting - An option exists (off by default) for Shamans to cast Water Walking and Affliction Warlocks to cast a Soulburned Unending Breath as they summon a mount with the Toggle Mount command. This way the buff is already in place when they encounter water so they don't have to dismount, buff and then remount (all while wondering why Death Knights get to cast Path of Frost while mounted).

autocast Horn of Winter when mounting - For Death Knights, Pokedex can cast Horn of Winter whenever you mount. This is useful for keeping the buff up while questing or resource gathering (e.g. mining).

    Great addon! the only problem i have is, if i only want to use 2 specific mounts on a char, for example engineering mounts on my engineering char, i have to go thru the entire list of other mounts and reduce their rank one by one? unless im missing another way of doing it? if theres not then it would be great for perhaps a checkbox beside the names of the mounts/pet/titles if you check it sets them to 0 so they never get picked? something like that

    Yeah, you need all the other mounts to be ranked 0 on your engineer to keep them from being in the selection pool.  I can give you two ways to bulk set all the mounts to 0 on your engineer  in one go so that you don't have to do them one by one.

    1) Create a new profile for your engineer. Change the default rank value from 10 to 0. Since no mounts have been given a custom rank yet they are treated as having the default rank, even if that default value is changed. So, by setting the default to 0 all mounts, and any new mounts you gain, will have a rank of 0 until you give them a custom rank value.  You'd then give non-zero ranks to your engineer mounts and they would be the only ones summoned.

    2) In the chat box, paste the following bolded text and press enter: /run for k,v in pairs(Pokedex.Globals.Variables.Mounts.ByName) do v.char_rank = 0 end.  Now reload UI, open up Pokedex options and give your engineer mounts non-zero ranks.

    If you have custom ranks set for pets and titles, then the problem with approach 1 is that you've now created a new profile.  You can copy your default profile values into the new one after creating it (the fewer custom mount ranks you have the more that will get swept to zero when you change the new default rank) but they won't stay in sync with your other characters.

    Approach 2 keeps the engineer sharing a proflie with everyone else but that loop sets the character specific rank override for all the mounts to 0. The only drawback with this approach is that default rank is a profile setting only which means everytime you gain a new mount you'll have to rank it zero on your engineer.

    Personally, I'd go with approach 2 in your shoes and just deal with zeroing out new mounts as you get them.

    Re: Pokedex Suggestion

    Hey, love this addon and have been using it about a year now. I love being able to set preferances to auto summon companions, mounts, and titles, like... you have no freakin idea how cool it is! (Obviously you do since you made it). Anyways I love this addon and hope you keep updating it whenever you can. I do have a suggestion to make it a little better however. In the Magical Menagerie pet shop in dalaran there is a vendor named Breanni: <Pet Supplies> little gnome, that sells a few cosmetic items for your pet(s). Now most of them don't matter much and come second since they have limited uses but the one thing that comes to mind are the pet leashes. You should add a feature to auto place the leash on the pets upon summoning them since they have unlimited uses. Here is to hoping it's not too complicated.

    I suspect that I can't auto apply something like that as it will be as item usage would be a protected function that would require user to initiate it. Which is to say, you still have to hit a key. At that point I'm not sure I save you much versus directly keybinding the item yourself.

    EDIT: I'll take a look though just to make sure about whether the api involved is protected or not.

    Hmm that sucks, How about instead since the Dk horn of winter and the warrior shouts function the same way now can you add a warrior auto shout when mounting feature? Hell that would even be better than the leash anyways... warriors would love you.

    Funny you should mention the DK horn of winter because I've been thinking, actually, about removing that ...  

    When I added it, Horn of Winter was a 5 minute buff, so it had to be refreshed pretty often. I used to do circuits of Uldum mining ore for an hour or two and it always seemed to fall off right before I mined a node where I would get in combat so I added that refresher.  But now that its an hour I was thinking of punting it to get it out of the way of an option to always put path of frost ...

    I suppose I could come up with a new approach that would work for all the classes in terms of their hour long buffs where if its missing, or maybe has less than 15 minutes on it, we apply.  Otherwise, we fall through to any other "with mount" casts like Cenarian Ward or Ice Barrier.  That's just going to add some complexity and make me rework some stuff and so its low on the priority queue.

    Can you add to the mount button a detection to see if you are in Nagrand and have the mount outpost/garrison ability?

    Bug

    If you get in combat while a list is open in the pokedex options pane (for example looking for a mount in the list), the window get closed but buggy, fps drops and some pokedex options dissappear, others are not clickable, had to reload to fix.

    Thanks for the addon.

    I love this addon, but I can't seem to get it to choose Sky Golem while on the Timeless Isle.  All other random mounts work. I've tried changing the mount hotness, etc., still doesn't pick Sky Golem. Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong? Thanks so much!

  • #162

    Do you have "favor ground mounts" checked?  If so, then Pokedex is skipping any mounts that can also fly in favor of those that are ground only. 

  • #165

    Thank you! updating it fixed it :)

    I unchecked that. Still won't pick Sky Golem =\

    Are you using the newest version, 5.1.15?  It just got released yesterday.  One of the bug fixes in it was to fix the categorization of the Sky Golem from Flyer only to one capable of being summoned anywhere. So, if you were still using 5.1.14 then you'd get the behavior you're seeing where the Sky Golem couldn't be summoned.

    I just made the Sky Golem my hot mount, set heat to 100 and Pokedex summoned it on the Timeless Isle. Note: Favor Ground Mounts does still have to be unchecked for that to happen.
