Livestock  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.2.5
by: Kharthus [More]

Livestock: For all your companion needs

Now that your pets and mounts don't take up space in your bags, Livestock lets you manage them intelligently. This addon sorts your companions into land mounts, flying mounts, and vanity pets. Then, with the push of a button, you can randomly summon any of the three, or designate a favorite pet to have out on command.

You can also have Livestock always keep a pet by your side, and have it dismiss your vanity pet when you are in PVP battle and it would give away your position.

You can even tell Livestock to put you on a random land or flying mount depending on whether the area you're in lets you fly or not. Underwater or in combat, Livestock can also be configured to cast certain spells relating to travel, such as Path of Frost or Ghost Wolf.

New to version 1.2 and above, you can designate certain pets or mounts to be called in certain zones or subzones. Ride in style on a Frostwolf Howler while in Alterac Valley, and then switch to your favorite color of Mechanostrider while in Ironforge. Livestock will let you make sure that you have your good luck pet out whenever you're in Ulduar or Trial of the Crusader.
You can summon critters, land mounts, and flying mounts in various ways. See the ReadMe file for more information.
Localization Help:
Livestock currently only works for the enUS, deDE, eES, ruRU, and frFR clients. (The client is only localized completely for the enUS client, and assistance in localizing is always appreciated!) If you are on another client, Livestock will load but will show all English strings. If you are willing to help localize the addon for your language, please let me know - you'd only need to provide some simple translations and I'd do the rest. You can reach me through the Private Message system available here.
Slash Commands:
There are currently eight slash commands for the addon. View the ReadMe file for a more in-depth explanation. /livestock and /ls both work for commands.
  • Use "/livestock" to bring up the main menu bar.
  • Use "/livestock reset" to move the four Livestock Buttons back to their default positions.
  • Use "/livestock scale <scale>" to change the size of the Livestock Buttons.
  • Use "/livestock prefs" as a shortcut to access the preferences, described in the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock redo" to force Livestock to reset to default. Useful for squashing buggy behavior at the cost of having to reset your settings.
  • Use "/livestock [zone/subzone]" to designate a pet or mount for your current zone or subzone. For more information, check the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock [mount/nomount/pet/nopet]" to add/remove pets and mounts from the random summon list. Uses your active summon.
  • Use "/livestock debug" - Prints out useful debugging information that can assist the developers in solving problems. Use the command again to turn off the debugging output.


Livestock Options and Preferences:
You can find the options for Livestock in the Addons tab of the Blizzard Interface options menu. The "Livestock" tab has the major options, while options for pets, Smart Mounting, and zone/subzone preferences are in sub-menus. You can read more about the preferences in the ReadMe file.
Bug Reports and Feature Requests
If you find unexpected behavior in Livestock, especially in locales other than enUS, please check the FAQ first to see if it has been addressed and if there is a possible fix.
Please report any bugs you find with Livestock -- or feature requests you'd like to see -- using the "Report Bugs" or "Feature Request" button underneath the Download button, up and to the right. I appreciate your feedback and support.
If you are reporting a bug, the following information is helpful: Any error messages that you saw, where you were (if you can give coordinates, that's excellent), what you were trying to do, what your menus looked like, and what class you play.
Thanks!
Well-deserved credit goes to the following people:
  • Khanthal (Uldum), for the original idea and being our MT so often!
  • A BIG thank you to Sbo (UI and Macros forum, Live) who helped me figure out what was the issue with Dalaran and Wintergrasp as well as suggesting the way to get around it.
  • Grimgear (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping troubleshoot a bug, pointing me to keybindings, and suggesting rotation speed. Also for pointing out how best to adjust my GUI to compensate for localization.
  • Lunessa (UI and Macros forum, Live) for pointing me to Blizzard's instructions on creating panels in the Interface menu.
  • Xelron (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping construct debug messages to get more information and indirectly convincing me to make my own dropdowns.
  • Ro (UI and Macros forum, Beta) for the 3D model viewer idea. Ro also originally suggested making my own custom dropdowns, which I thought was beyond me!
  • Elloria and Tgulics (WoWInterface) for helping spread the word and test the addon in its early stages and for suggesting highlighting the buttons when they're clicked.
  • The MVPs (UI and Macros forum) for providing the resources needed to accomplish this one as well as stepping in and answering my questions from time to time. Special thanks to Alestane and Iriel for helping me with secure handlers.
  • kdkunde (WoWInterface) for helping translate this mod into German so far!
  • Vastilia (WoWInterface) and Yorgl (Curse) for helping translate into French!
  • madbit (WoWInterface) for the Spanish translation.
  • simply (Curse) for the Russian localization.
  • Certainly not least, Brenkite (Uldum) for being my personal troubleshooter and moral support.

Perhaps it is not registering the leaving combat event correctly?
I have seen this issue for quite some time.

I realize this may just be a rare case, but my pet is not auto-dismissing when I mount. This may be due to the mount I have - the Headless Horseman's Reins. But I just thought to test it, and with none of my other mounts is my pet dismissing (Turbo-Charged Flying Machine, regular Flying Machine). Are none of these consider the same kind of mounts as a regular flying mount?

is there a way to make the smart mount feature cast "Slow Fall" in combat...I've got a mage and I got used to using smart mount to cast slow fall, but I always forget it doesn't work in combat and end up falling to my death while running away from some big, mean creature that's trying to eat me...

That's because, well, Ghost Wolf isn't a mount.

What are you trying to do with the macro? Smart Mounting for shamans involving Ghost Wolf only works if you're in combat, or if you're moving and you've talented into instant-cast GW. Both require you to enable the preference to have the smart mount behavior pick GW in those situations.

Just check the box for "Allow Livestock mounting to break Stealth effects", and you should be set.

Really? I can't manage to get this to work. Every time I have the ghost out, if I summon a pet (even using Blizzard's pet interface) the ghost vanishes.

If it is possible, it would be VERY-VERY handy to do a /cancelaura Levitate before casting it...
Because, if you're swimming AND have Levitate buff, subsequent Levitate casts will not pop you over water.

edit: Yes, the Haunted Memento does indeed interfere with the auto summon. Guess blizzard changed the coding for it in 3.0.8, nice catch.

Did some testing, banking it immediately summoned one of my pets, putting it in my bags again removed my current pet, and gave me the shadow/ghost again.
See the comment below, but: when I made Livestock v1.1.4, I disabled the "autosummon" if you had a Haunted Memento in your bags, because I figured you'd want the ghost to take preference over any other pets. After all, you were carrying the item in your bags!

Check the FAQ soon - I'll be making a post about this in there, with an option on how to hack the .lua file on disabling that if you like.

NugMinipet which I was using before Livestock did the summon without problems.
Any hints?

ps: I think I've found the cause.
The shadow pet which follows you around while carrying the Haunted Momento hinders the auto-summon.
Haveto put it in my bank to get my pets summoned.
Minou, this would be the cause. Since the ghost counts as a combat pet, if it's out, then you wouldn't be able to have another pet out. Since there's currently no way to access the ghost to summon it on command, I assume that if you have the item in your bag, you want the ghost out and NOT a random pet. Thus, I told Livestock never to summon a pet if you have the necklace in your bag.

Thanks for letting me know, though! I appreciate the feedback.
