GathererDB WoWHead  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.0.2013-06-15
by: Esamynn, dinesh, MentalPower, Nechckn, Norganna, norganna_uploader


WoWInterface is happy to announce that we have teamed up with Wowhead and the Norganna's AddOns Gatherer team to provide you with an exclusive downloadable Wowhead database for display in-game by Gatherer.

This addon will provide you with all the information currently in the Wowhead database showing all known locations of herbs, minerals and treasures. Now you can simply load up Gatherer, plug this database into it, and know what can be found in the zone you are in, without having to discover them yourself.

Wowhead will be providing regular dumps of their database to the Norganna team, who will then update the GathererDB Wowhead addon exclusively here on WoWInterface.


How it works
The import procedure is simple and painless. Once you have installed the AddOn and have reloaded the game, ensuring that both Gatherer and GathererDB_Wowhead are activated. When you finally log into the game, follow this procedure to import the new data into Gatherer:

  • Open Gatherer's configuration dialog.
  • Click on the red "Database" tab on the left-hand side of the dialog.
  • Click the import button in the main panel.

Make sure to add GathererDB-Wowhead to your favourites list here on WoWInterface and check back periodically to see if it's been updated, or get an email sent to you whenever they update it if you have those notifications turned on. Any time they update it, just re-download GathererDB-Wowhead and update your local copy.


Help improve the database
If you want to contribute your data back to Wowhead to continue expanding the database, please download and install the Wowhead client (available for both PC and Mac) and just follow the instructions on their site.


About Gatherer
Gatherer is an addon for herbalists, miners and treasure hunters in World of Warcraft. It's main purpose is to track the closest plants, deposits and treasure locations on your minimap.

The addon does not track like a tracking ability does, rather it "remembers" where you have found various items in the past. It does this whenever you gather (perform herbalism, mining, or opening) on an item, and records the specific map location in its history. From then on, whenever the item comes into range of being one of the closest 1-25 (configurable) items to your present location, it will pop up on the minimap.

When you view your World Map, you will also see the item locations clearly marked on each zone's map.


About Wowhead
Wowhead was created with one sole intent: to provide World of Warcraft players with an extensive database and tools to enhance their gaming experience. This website is our contribution to this wonderful game.

Our user community is a big part, if not the biggest part, of Wowhead. Almost all of our information comes from our users, through data uploads from the Wowhead Client, comments on database entries and screenshot submissions! The site also features forums, where users can ask questions, discuss important Warcraft-related topics, recommend and share favorite addons, and much more!

Badhbh,

Indeed, the OS X unzipping is a bit "odd" to say the least. For some reason, Windows and *nix tend to correctly pull the folder hierarchy but OS X makes the attempt, but fails.

We used to put out multiple formats of compressed installs, but just about everyone has settled on .zip as the extension of choice.

So... enough rambling. Know you know what to investigate should you have the issue with any others. Happy you are up and running!

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

That may be it- It's not in it's own folder. My Mac likes to sometimes decide that things don't need their own folder. >.< I'll try it again when I get home Thanks!

Should be all of one folder, GathererDB_Wowhead, once you unzip, and then place that into ..\WorldofWarcraft\Interface\AddOns.

Badhbh,

If it is not showing in the main WoW AddOns Control Panel, then you are not downloading, unzipping, and moving to the correct location.

Should be all of one folder, GathererDB_Wowhead, once you unzip, and then place that into ..\WorldofWarcraft\Interface\AddOns.

Once done, launch WoW and see if it is displayed, if it is not, then simply try again. Be sure to perform the movement and all whilst WoW is completely shutdown.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

Re: Re: Re: No updates, eh?

Derpo, et al,

If you find/have found new nodes, be sure to run the Wowhead updater. Only when there are enough confirmed "sightings" of a node, is it added, so be sure to run the updater every few play sessions.

See http://www.wowhead.com/?client , there are clients for Windows and OSX.

Compared the data to the d/l and it was missing a few, but surely not many. Will likely update for 3.3. if there is enough new data and time to get it packaged.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

And I found some new old-continent nodes (herbs/ore/chests) not being in the database as well.

Well it's not a big deal gathering new data yourself and such, but the whole purpose of the database was the first-start help for new gatherer users and in my opinion the database could use an update.
Not only for the TOC-version-update as mentioned a lot of times before.

Blizz obviously hasn't added or moved nodes around much, if at all and the WoWhead data was pretty much already complete when this DB was compiled.
Not worth the effort to update for such minor changes.

And so did a lot of other people.

You can check it yourself for any major updates should they occur pretty quickly by counting the entries in the DB and the numbers shown on WoWhead. For instance, there's 405 entries for Titanium ore in Icecrown (I C&P the list in Word, replaced the , with a manual line break, and then pasted the list into Excel to quickly count the DB entries) in the DB while WoWhead shows 406 nodes in Icecrown.

Re: No updates, eh?

Derpo,

Auctioneer, Enchantrix, and Gatherer functions are our first priority.

This falls well down the list of priorities, quite frankly, especially when the locations have not changed since a few months prior to the latest update.

So, will an update be along at some point? Surely. Would we recommend holding your breath? No.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

When I run /gatherer from within the game I get a GUI that has the following menu on the left-hand side:
Core Options
Profiles
Minimap
Sharing
Mining
Herbalism
Treasure
About
Plugins
HUD

That's it. No database option. No way to import.

I'm guessing that I'm missing something obvious. I surely would appreciate it if someone would point out my mistake to me.
