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.
Version 1.4b
- Get my act together with respect to watch window location (thanks Grizzly_UK!)

Version 1.4a
- More work on keeping the watcher visible and onscreen (using LibWindow)
- Handle version changes and per-player settings correctly
- Fix an issue with LibTourist where it doesn't check for esMX

Version 1.4
- Updated German translation (thanks DirtyHarryGermany!)
- Attempted fix for 64-bit crash bug (#227) by using PLAYER_ALIVE
- Remove invalid frame reference in watcher window (Curse #229)
- Add "/fb fishdata reset" to clear out all fish location data (#127)
- More work on the watcher frame to try and make it stay on screen all the time

Has anyone else noticed that "The Canals" in Stormwind has been renamed to "Stormwind City: Stormwind City"?

I'm experiencing a new issue since... well, I'm not sure since when.

Anyways, when I click to put the fishing buddy outfit on it gives me a red text error saying that I don't have the required items to equip.

Here's a picture to show you that I do have these items in my bags, but it can't find them for some reason..

Yea I had this same issue, I solved it by removing the items from outfitter and putting them back in the slots again. This worked for me and may work for you. Good luck!

I did that a few times, but it always seems to happen again later on when I log on again or whenever.

Yea I ran into the problem again as well. So, I guess its something for
Sutorix to address. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for this to be addressed.

I have the exact same issue... And when I remove and put them back in the outfit window, it will work... Until the next time...

I have resorted to using Outfitter to active my fishing pole and hat...

Why don't you make a mod that simply changes the tracking to fish when you equip a pole?

One click?

Is it possible to make it fish with just one click?
So that after you have clicked the bobble once and autolooted it casts the fishing skill, so i wont have to double click.

Thanks for a great addon.

New Mastercraft Pole Compatiblility?

I just began using the new mastercraft pole from the Kalu'ak, and found that it didn't work with my old fishing mod. I downloaded this fishing mod with high expectations from the great reviews.

But I am sad - the double click function does not work with my new shiny epic pole. I don't think I am doing something wrong (at 450 fishing, I'd hope that I know what I'm doing by now), so I am guessing that this pole is not registering with the mod.

Is it me, doing something wrong with my double right clicking? Or is it my new pole, being just too new and not in the mod? And if the latter is the case, any ideas on when the mod could be updated? I am soooo spoiled with double clicking - hey, at least I admit it....

Thank you - and thanks for a wonderful mod. I like the extra data that it collects and provides.

Item of note

Found this while questing in Grizzly Hills...

There is a quest called "Mounting Up" that has an item named "Stick" to use for catching horses. The stick item is not listed as a Fishing Pole for its type or subtype so I am assuming Fishing Buddy is looking at the item texture to determine what is and is not a fishing pole. This "Stick" item has the pole icon and triggers Fishing Buddy when equipped.

Here is a Wowhead link to the item:

http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37708

It doesn't cause errors to occur, but does bring up the fishing frame, which was a little odd when it happened

Sound in Background

I quit wow for a couple months, just came back to find that you added "Sound in Background" while fishing. That's great, thanks! I love fishing while minimized, just gotta be quick when you hear that bobber go off.

Was I imagining things, or did FB used to have a line in the tracking window that would tell you approximately how many catches it would take till your next skillup and how many you had caught so far since your last skillup (eg: 5/12 would mean 5 catches since last skillup, a total of ~12 needed till next skillup.)

Is that feature still a part of FB? Because I can't find how to turn it on if it is, and I thought it was a nice touch.
