MageTaxi
Version: r6
by: ChaosInc [More]
Why are there so many mods for trade skill spam and not a single one for the easiest money maker in the game: mage ports? Well here it is.

This is built to be simple and efficient for advertising mage ports.

** Please use the Bug Report/Feature Request features to the right. This is more for your benefit than mine as I may not notice them in comments right away. **

Features
Automatically detects for Alliance/Horde
Easy one-button spamming
Automatic Trade channel detection once you enter a city/log in
Automatically disables ports the character hasn't learned yet
Custom pricing

Usage
/magetaxi OR /mtaxi to open window

Spam Button
Spams Trade channel advertising for ports (selected ports don't effect this!).

LFM
After receiving a port request, press this to advertise for more people for the selected port.

Last Call
Use this to announce a last call for the selected port.

Special Notes (please read before asking)
This will not work outside of a city, so spamming newbie zones isn't a concern.

r6
+ Horde portals should now properly enable/disable based on toon knowledge (needs testing, let me know if it's still not working)

r5
+ GUI layout changed to new style I'm using
+ Support for Tol Barad added
+ removed mana check that may be cause issues improper disabling of spells

r4
+ Realized that MageTaxi should become more popular again in Cataclysm after town portals are removed. So I should get off my ass and update it. ;)

+ .toc updated
+ Fix so it no longer says "port to anywhere" to be "port to <selected>"
+ Prices now pull directly from the edit box rather than saved vars when clicking buttons. Previously, if users didn't press "ENTER" after changing a price, it'd still display the old price instead.
+ Instead of spamming incorrect nonsense and/or errors, the player will get a warning if they have no ports selected/available when pressing buttons.
+ Some coding cleanup for more efficiency.



r3
Note to self: If I change the config's frame name, make sure I change it for the ESC-to-close as well!

r2
"IT'S ABOUT DAMNED TIME!!!" - Yeah, yeah, I know. Shut it! =p

+ Initial SVN commit
+ .XML completely removed cause it is the work of the devil
+ I was bored, so decided to recode most of the addon. (It was messy as hell considering it was one of my first.)
+ Don't like the default pricing? CHANGE IT YOURSELF THEN!
+ Why have the ability to select spells you can't actually cast? Good question, and it's been finally answered.
+ Applied my "trademark" coloring to the GUI (you'll get over it ;p)
+ Speaking of GUI, it's been changed too. Thought you'd like to know.
+ Time to get off my ass and get on my Wii Fit for my "real life daily quest".

Glad to see someone still remembers this addon and is deciding to update it. Have been using it for quite some time. Best of luck to you; looking forward to testing.

Just to avoid any misconceptions, I haven't returned to WoW as of yet and won't be actively updating this myself. As I said, since the Team Project feature is available, it avoids the now-unnecessary "Fan Update" duplicate that was planned. Thoradicus will be the "primary" author; Please refer questions/requests to him at this time.

Thanks!

EDIT: The above is a lie.

This sounds like a fun addon for 4.0.3 & beyond lol. You know the patch that gets rid of the portals in dalaran & shattrath city? Mages will be in even higher demand for their "taxi" services!

Right there in the change log mate.

I originally wrote this back towards the end of vanilla before ports were introduced in cities, so I know exactly what to expect at 4.0.3, especially since I have a mage.

Are you sure it's enabled in the addons menu?

r4 had a syntax error that I had corrected in my version and forgot to reupload. Most likely those who haven't been able to pull up the GUI have lua error reporting turned off, so they didn't get any popups for it.

In any case, players can redownload r4 and the problem should be fixed.

Well thank you for your well written and thought out report on the issue you are having. I assure you, with this vast amount of info you can surely bet that I'll hop to the offending code and get a fix out.

Of course, this would all be true if someone would provide something a bit more useful than "Epic Failz". The only thing that is failing at this point is your report. Gimme something to work with.

You are not meant to. By design, the "Spam" button is used for normal advertising (WTS ports...), "LFM" is for when you have someone and offering to port others looking for the same dest as the person you already have and "Last Call" should self explanatory by this point. However, after reading your comment I plan to add the ability for people to whisper you and automatically reply with the ports you can cast.
