Damn Mounts
Version: r1037
by: Shadowed [More]
Fairly simple mod that's meant to fix the fact that [flyable] doesn't work as you would think in Dalaran or Wintergrasp. Basically, what this does is put a macro (or companion) you set when you're in a city on your bars, then another when you move into a zone that works with [flyable].

No configuration, to set it up. Put the mount you want to use in a city and type /dm city, then swap to the mount you want to use for flight and type /dm fly and you're good to go. You can also use /damnmounts if another addon has /dm already used.

For example, in a city you would have a macro that does something like

/cast Amani War Bear

And then for flying you would have one setup that does

/cast [flyable] Brutal Nether Drake; Amani War Bear

confused

Ok, this sounds great, but the setup is extremely confusing

Here's what I have done:

1. Installed addon.
2. Switched into my land mount. Typed /dm city
3. Switched into my flying mount. Typed /dm fly

So. Now am I supposed to create a macro like:

/cast [flyable] Swift Blue Gryphon; Swift Stormsaber

Then I use this macro and when I am in Dalaran it will summon my Swift Stormsaber, otherwise if I can fly it will summon my Swift Blue Gryphon?

I'm confused on the execution of your addon, once we /dm city and /dm fly, what do we do to use your addon and summon the right mount?

It seems that it does not work on Chinese client. I am still not sure how to deal with multilingual in LUA. Any ideas/plans to fix it?
The savevariables only has
DamnMountsDB = {
["flying"] = {
},
["canFly"] = 1,
["city"] = {
},
}
even after running /dm city & /dm fly several times..

thanks for your work!

As far as I know, it's something they want to fix, but it's not a high priority.

Useful.


Any idea if Blizzard intends to ever fix this themselves? ^^

You can use /damnmounts instead if you have a mod that conflicts with it, will update description.

Good idea, it's a pain in the ass trying to fit all the zone info into a macro. Works nice and simply.
