Livestock  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.9.9
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.

Could you add a button to the Interface/Addons control panel to bring up the pet config screen (where the 3D view is) so a person wouldn't have to type /livestock to see that screen. Right now with 2 different places to configure the mod it can get confusing.
Also, could you make it so that when we are looking at the 3D setup screen we could summon a particular pet right from there by clicking a button. Would never need to look at Blizzard's crappy pet ui again... yay!

Thanks for all your hard work!

Hi Twidget, I'll think about these in the upcoming release but I am working on changing the layout right now, which will take a while to do. Please make a note of it through the feature request option so I can keep track of it and won't forget it!

Edit: I'm not going to adjust the menu layout - it's too complicated for me to want to do, so I will probably sneak these changes into the next version.

Sure, try this - I think I misunderstood your last post about how you wanted it to work.
Code:
/dismount [noflying]
/click [nocombat,btn:1]LivestockComboButton;[nocombat]LivestockLandMountsButton
That should give you a smart mount on Left-click and force a land mount on right-click.

If you want that to be switched, change the btn:1 to btn:2.

If I'm not mistaken, you had your original macro written a bit wrong - it was saying "if I'm not in combat OR I'm using a modifier, summon a smart mount; otherwise summon a land mount." But it looked like you wanted a modifier to summon a land mount INSTEAD of the smart mount.

Edit: Also, if you're using the AotP / AotC macro above while the macro has [modifier], you shouldn't be able to get AotP with a right-click because the game is looking for a modifier click (i.e. SHIFT, CTRL, or ALT). Unless... you're playing on a Mac?
Wow .. the response time on that was unreal .. and I thank you so much ..

Works like a cham with a modifier. if I just "left click. right click, or Alt leftclick".. I get a flyer, if I hold alt and "rightclick" I get a land mount..

So the next question being .. could we make this work without having a modifier? .. so that you just had to left and right click to get the same effect?

Trying to get the macro to have a modifier so that when I left click I get random Flyer, and when I right click "Or hold a modifier key ie:Alt" I get a Ground mount.

For example .. on my hunter .. this macro on left click casts AoTC, and on right click casts AoTP

#showtooltip
/cast [modifier] Aspect of the Pack; Aspect of the Cheetah

I just can't figure out how to make it work for clicks. Any help would be great

Came up with this Idea whilst leveling before I had epic flying.. found that sometimes it was faster to get to point B with your regular ol epic mount.

that seriously is the only problem ive seen. I freaking love this mod.

also im sorry if you already answered my question but did you ever see my comment on summoning a certain type of mount if your in a certain faction's city?

tb - kodo, uc - horse, org- dog or raptor etc.

<3

ps: im loving the little messages you put on the rotation bar. You cracked me up!
Thanks again for the kind words, Elloria

I did see your comment about certain mounts for certain cities - I'm not going to say "no" to it totally, but it'd require reworking the mod a decent amount. Ideally I'd like to have some sort of panel where you can pick zones and assign mounts to them - so if I was in AV, I'd get on a Frostwolf, or in Dun Morogh, get on a Ram, or something like that. It's just annoying to make the visual interface for that, and that's the only thing holding me back right now.

As far as the Evocation thing goes, try this until I update to the new version:

- Go into the Livestock mod folder and open Livestock.lua with a text editor.
- Use "Find" and search for the following phrase: if donotsummon then
- Change that to the following phrase: if donotsummon or UnitCastingInfo("player") then
- Save and close the file.

When you log into the game next, you should see that you don't have a pet interrupt channeled spells anymore.

Something's confusing me though - were you casting evocation WITH a pet out and it was trying to summon a new one? That shouldn't be happening...

Thanks for the encouragement, Dridzt, and the bug report - it would do that now that I see how I defined the flag.

I'll fix it and upload a fixed version later today, I was tweaking so many things and uploading several v1.0.7s that I want to give the file admins a break from approving the uploads

Edit: Actually, oooh, I see what the problem is - it'll overwrite even for people who aren't new users. That's serious enough to put out now.

I've used it to replace one other mod for pets and a couple of complicated macros for mounts. Thank you.

I noticed that on my alt that does not have any vanity pets, I kept getting spammed to open Livestock to build the pet list and despite doing this several times and reloading the interface (just to be sure) the spam continued. Probably most everyone that is using this mod has vanity pets (as I do on my main, 47/50 Pet Smart... sooooo close!), and they would not have noticed this. To duplicate the issue, just make a new toon and see what happens.

Thanks again for a simple, yet satisfying mod!
NavyFC, sorry it's taken so long to get back to your comment. I wrote it down and then responded to a slew of other comments and missed yours in the rush.

You should see this fixed in v1.0.7.

Thanks for the work.
Pushy users = better authors, to be truthful

AHHHH I finally find out what LDB stands for. This is good.

I'm hampered a bit by not being on my usual computer, and on a borrowed one that the owner has asked that I respectfully keep downloads to a minimum - especially in WoW, where he has to de-select mods that I downloaded most of the time. (I've since changed the mods to be default disabled so they don't bug him when he logs in!) When he saw I got the WoW Programming book, he sighed and said "Just don't mess up the computer too much." However, I can definitely take a look at LDB and see how Fubar actually works instead of just seeing screenshots and such.
