Kennel  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.1.0.16-Beta
by: Tekkub [More]
Kennel is a simple minipet addon, it automatically puts out a random pet whenever you need one. Kennel will not put out your pet if you are stealthed, mounted, flying, moving, casting, in an arena or BG. Kennel will also avoid putting out a pet in certain subzones where a quest summons a pet for you.

It'd be nice if Kennel didn't autosummon pets when in battlegrounds.

Quick fix:

Code:
if numpets > 0 then 
  local throne = GetSubZoneText();
  if throne ~= "Throne of Kil'jaeden" then
    CallCompanion("CRITTER", math.random(numpets));
  end
end

I like this mod, thank you for your time on it.

I was wondering if anyone can point me to a mod, or if anyone can do up a mod that allows us to re-order our pets to whatever order we wish them to be in.

I don't want the pet frame to look different, kind of like it how it is, but would love to be able to drag and drop pets, shuffle them around to my order instead of the order they currently are.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks, and thanks again for this pet summoner, it's fun. =)

One thing that would be useful would be the ability to exclude certain pets. Specifically, I'd like to exclude the various winter pets that require a snowball to summon, because I generally don't have any on me.

Kennel doesn't play nicely when you're trying to do the Hellfire Peninsula daily "Blast the Gateway". That's the one where you take the temporary mini-pet spark and grow it by killing fire elementals. Kennel insists on summoning a "real" minipet, making the temporary one disappear.

Needless to say, reloading my interface before and after doing that daily is...inconvenient.

Falling

Druids are able to go into flight form when falling, but if this mod decides to bring out a minipet during free fall, it will trigger GCD and prevent flight form for that time period. This can lead to death depending on if GCD before having a chance to save yourself from falling. If there is any chance you could detect falling and disable autominipet during that? I love this mod btw. Good work.

Not having the pet auto put out when you are dismounted while in combat would be a good thing. Not being able to cast spells instantly (as the GCD is still triggered. at least on my computer it is) to retaliate hurts a bit.

Due to the following, that shouldn't happen. I've not tested it, but after reading this, I was going to make the modifications for my copy, but it doesn't appear to be necessary. Are you certain you were in combat at the time?
Code:
if InCombatLockdown() then return self:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_REGEN_ENABLED") end

It is hard to test, but it seems to be my experience as well.

Is there a command that can simply suspend Kennel putting out a pet until reactivated? Would seem to be a simple step to add that if its not available.

Feature Request: A way to toggle Kennel on and off easily. A slash command at the least, possibly a broker button to click it on and off.

I had to disable the addon because sometimes I'm getting ganked and my pet gives away my position when I hit my mage invisibility. Also, sometimes if I rez and hit invisibility immediately to avoid things, like ganking, Kennel will summon my pet and take me out of invisibility. That has nothing to do with my feature request though.

Thank you so much for the config!! With 52+ minipets I never really want to select from all of them (the regular vendor ones are pretty uninteresting to me). Perfect!!

Could we add a check so that it doesn't put a pet out if we have started to eat or drink without a pet out so that we don't loose the food we have started to eat?

There's an issue where if you're a priestess with Spirit of Redemption then Kennel will try and put out a pet when you die and SoR kicks in. It can't, apparently (SoR only allows you to use healing spells), but it tries, thus triggering a GCD and eating into what little cast time you have before you die again.

Took me forever to figure out why it was that I couldn't cast for the first second or two in angel form, finally caught the error message last night. Not sure if it's a new bug on Blizz' end or what, but I don't think Kennel has been doing that all along.

Edit: After further testing it turns out I was wrong. Kennel can successfully summon a pet whilst in SoR, thus triggering the GCD. While it's somewhat cute having a minipet out whilst in angelform, the GCD isn't worth it.

Actually a broker plugin to turn kennel on/off (and summon/unsummon with that) would be REALLY nice.
