NowCarrying
Version: 1.5
by: kerrang [More]
NowCarrying 1.5
by <Damage Inc> of (EU)Draenor - email damageinc [at] theedgeofthevoid.com

NowCarrying monitors any stackable items you receive/are carrying.
When you gain/lose one-or-more of these it replaces the message
You receive [ITEM]xN
with
Now Carrying T [ITEM] (+/-N)
where N is the amount you've gained/lost
and T is the total you are carrying.

So instead of
"You receive [Knothide Leather]x2"
you would get something like
"Now Carrying 22 [Knothide Leather] (+2)"

Why do this?
Unlike the Blizzard message, which only appears on looting corpses or when crafting
NowCarrying gives a message when taking things from Mailboxes, Banks, Trading etc.

In fact ANY time your inventory changes!

So you're farming for a specific number of items and you can see how many you have
EVERY time you loot one - without having to open your bags.

When you use a spell/ability which requires reagents, you see how many reagents you
have left.

When you eat/drink/use potions/bandages etc., you see how many of these you have
remaining.

When you craft an item you see the remaining raw materials


FAQ

Q - I sometimes get the standard "You receive..." message for items which are stackable
A - Items which are not in your local itemcache are reported 'unstackable' until the server updates
The message may appear the first time you see a particular item - nothing I can do about that...
Version 1.5

Version 1.3

1.2 uploaded (awaiting approval atm)

The ONLY change is that this version works with both normal WOW and the latest WOTLK BETA Client (8820)

I've uploaded 1.1 (it's awaiting approval atm) which excludes the currently selected 'ammo' item when you're in-combat.

I think that should stop you going too mad

Maybe have it as a Checkbox or an Option to have it show or hide ammo, as it's a great idea for Hunter's with no other addons, but I myself use AmmoFu with FuBar and it lets me know how much ammo I have.

I don't think I could live without this addon, you have done an amazing job with this. It's simple, yet extremely effictive and useful for soooooo many reasons.

My first thought is to suppress whatever is in your ammo slot when you're in-combat - that's fairly easy.

This means no warning when you're running low on ammo tho - perhaps I should suppress the current ammo item when there's more than 1 stack left and you're in-combat?

or do Hunters have other methods for warning them of low ammo?

Other than that tiny annoyance, this is one of the most well-done UI addons I'm using... and I'm using an aweful lot of them.

This is one of those addons that is so simple, yet so very useful. Thanks!
