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!

Balthazir,

Well, until there is some change to the maps or change in the node locations, the current database reflects the location of the nodes.

Simply ensure that you have "Load Out of Date" AddOns selected on the main WoW AddOns Control Panel.

As to the power crystals, they are considered Treasure by Gatherer and that is where the option to enable/disable them resides.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

Acleacius,

Will be putting out an update that will not require it, but that will not be for at least a few days.

In the mean time, you will need to click the "Load Out of Date" AddOns button in the upper right of the main WoW AddOns Manager, to access, simply click on the "Addons" button in the lower left of the Character Selection Screen.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

I am having a bit of trouble, just tried playing since 3.1 and I can't seem to get a Red Button on the left hand side of the Config menu. I see all the Core options and under Plug ins, only Hud is listed.

I have tried using Curse Client and Manual install for Gatherer and Gatherer DB.


Thanks for any tips.

Shamino,

Ah, see what you mean. We will take a look and see if there is not some better way.

Were you to gather them manually, they should be the same spot, just simply change depending on the latest thing you pulled from that location.

The DB is a bit different, as it adds everything prior to Gatherer's real start up, so there is little interaction.

Can see how that would be odd, though, and will talk more with the main Gatherer developer to see if there is something we can do to address the issue.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

i found a node in the basin, that gathererDB has 3 nodes for. It can either spawn saronite, rich saronite or titanium. I confirmed this by unchecking those 3 filters and then checking them 1 at a time to confirm which 3 nodes they were.

I then gathered the node, which happen to be a saronite node. The gathererdb saronite node was replaced as expected, but the other 2 nodes (rich saronite and titanium) remained.

I assume this is 'working as intended', but it is confusing. My preference would be to see a single node "circle" that represents all 3, as opposed to 3 seperate node circles, which all blend together.

any thoughts on that ?

Shamino,

It should update to "white", as you say, once you have gathered a node, all depending on the distance. There are some areas where there are nodes closer together, such as around UC and in Elwynn Forest, for sure- and likely others, too. For those, if you collect one, then another could well be next to it, just simply not active at the time(s) you have run through.

If you notice this happening with every node, then there could well be some issue; let us know.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

hello there. as always thanks for supporting a great addon.

question regarding the pinkish nodes referred to below. as was stated, when we import the gatherer DB, these nodes are pinkish to distinguish them from nodes that i have picked.

however, i'm finding that when I gather a node that I have never gathered before, but there is a gathererdb node there, the result are 2 nodes.

1 being my node, and the other being the gathererdb node.

is it meant to work in this way? I thought that once I manually collected from a node, it would delete/replace the gathererDB node that was there?

Tharien,

There have been no new areas added since the last update and the old areas have not had their node location moved or removed. Once either thing happens, we will release an update once the data is in and verified.

As for your suggestion, the Wowhead client uploads all such locations and then, once the data is correlated between a number of users, it is "standardized". After any such changes, we obtain that "standardized" data and then provide it here.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

What would be nice is if wow head allowed for the upload of gatherer files and parsed the data on there side integrating it with the existing info and then providing a continually updating download. Itís completely capable of being totally automated, but it either hasnít been thought of it yet, they donít know how to do it, or they just donít care about this anymore.

ZyphoZ,

Once new areas are added with new nodes or the old areas are updated to move or change the locations, then we will be more than happy to release an update.

As of right now, the nodes that existed at WoW 3's release have not changed and there have been no added locations.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk
