Fishing Buddy  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Fishing Buddy
-------------

Yet another fishing support add-on.

Support thread: Fishing Buddy

Features:
- 'Fish Watcher' lets you see the fish you've caught here before (or
the fish that you've caught in the current session)
- Display your current skill level and the time since you started fishing
- Choose your fishing outfit and change into it easily
- Support for automatically adding a lure to your fishing pole
- Full Titan Panel support
- myAddOns support
- Preliminary support for tracking 'cycle fish' such as the Nightfin
Snapper so you know when to go looking for them

Example commands:
/fishingbuddy or /fb
toggle the display of the Fishing Buddy window
/fb help
print the list of Fishing Buddy commands
/fb switch
wear your chosen fishing outfit, or change back

There are two actual add-ons -- the second one, OutfitDisplayFrame,
handles the pretty pane to set up your fishing outfit (it's next on
the list to be made into something more general that anyone can use).
The OutfitDisplayFrame addon can be safely left out if you have a
preferred equipment manager.

alt-clicking on an item in your outfit display will clear it

Silly stuff:
In addition to displaying the fishing bonus for your fishing outfit,
it also displays your 'style points' as inferred from Draznar's Fishing FAQ
Updated from duplicate postin: HERE.
Check there for updates if this falls behind.

Thanks to the authors of:

TackleBox -- still adding cool features to keep up with!
Impp's Fishing DB
QuickWeaponSwap

and many, many others!

Feel free to send comments to Sutorix on the Windrunner server.

Installation
------------

1. Unzip the 'FishingBuddyVERSION.zip' file
2. If your unzip program allows you to specify a location, then
unzip it into the "Interface/AddOns" folder contained in your
WoW folder (the location that WoW was installed)
3. If your unzip program doesn't let you specify the destination,
then find your WoW folder (where it was installed) and drag
the 'FishingBuddy' and 'OutfitDisplayFrame' folder into the
'Interface/AddOns' folder.

I just finally got around to using Fishing Buddy and I am really impressed with it. I noticed you put in future.txt "Font/size selection for watcher window". So it's on your todo list but do you think you could give a quick how to on how I would go about changing it myself until you have it ready or isn't it that easy?

Also, was wondering if you could possibly set up an option to make the Fish Watcher "Grow Up", instead of growing downward on the screen. This would really help me out since my UI is all custom setup.

Keep up the amazing work!

Sutorix, if you will add the following to the FBTitan lua file:

tinsert(TITAN_PANEL_NONMOVABLE_PLUGINS, FBConstants.ID)

as the last statement (after self.RegisterEvent) in the OnLoad function, users will be able to swap the icon with other right-side icons.

EDIT: Made a correction to the code.

Sound in Background

I like to minimize or alt-tab when I fish, so I added these lines to turn on "Enable sound in background" when your pole is equipped as part of the "enhance fishing sounds" option:
Code:
228 ["EnhanceSound_EnableSoundWhenGameIsInBG"] = {
229       ["default"] = 1.0,
230    },

1795 local sb = tonumber(GetCVar("Sound_EnableSoundWhenGameIsInBG"));  
 
1804 efsv["Sound_EnableSoundWhenGameIsInBG"] = sb;

A few things I've notice about Fishing buddy. The gear switch feature is rather bugged. Sometimes it'll work perfectly fine, other times it'll just randomly stop working all together. It almost makes me hesitant to use the feature at all.

The other thing is the Enhance fishing sounds feature. It'd be rather nice if the feature didn't automatically go to the highest sound effect setting, but rather a sound effect setting you set yourself in the options.

Other than that, great add-on.

Yeah, i've the same "problem".

Btw gz to the creator of this addon XD Added to favorites, couldn't live without it.




EDIT: ok mate, open the FB options panel (click on the minimap icon) you will see 4 tabs: Locations, Outfits, Tracking, Options -> uncheck "Display minimap button" (if it is marked you will see the options to adjust the minimap button position instead!) and it should work.

I do not like using curse.com and was debating on whether to continue to use this addon or just get rid of it if the Author stopped updating it on wowinterface.com but fortunately I no longer have to worry about that
at the time of me posting that, he hadn't updated this site since version g, we are now on version m.

so i was pointing folks to where they can get the newest version
