Follow Felankor
A World of Warcraft UI AddOn
By Felankor


NOTE: Your friends, guild, group and raid members DO NOT need this AddOn installed to be able to command you (E.g. to make you follow them). There are however a few features which do require them to have this AddOn installed.

#############################
DESCRIPTION
#############################


Follow Felankor is primarily an Auto Follow AddOn (It allows Friends, Guild, Group and Raid members to make you follow them if for example you go AFK).
It also has many other useful features whether you like to Dual/Multi Box, level/quest with friends, run raids or dungeons or just have fun with your
mates. Please read below for a full list of features.

#############################
FEATURES
#############################


1) Allows friends and group/raid/guild members to make you follow them (With the option to prevent this if you are using the auction house, npc or looting etc).
2) Automatically resumes following the last person you followed after combat ends. Casting a spell will cancel Auto Resume. (Disabled by default)
3) Allows your friends and group/raid/guild members to make you mount and dismount.
4) Auto accepts resurrect from friends and group/raid/guild members.
5) Auto accepts group invites from friends and guild members.
6) Auto invites friends and guild members to your group upon their request through a whisper command. (Don't worry, this can be disabled!)
7) Auto accepts quests and shared quests or escorts. (Disabled by default)
8) Notifies the person you are following and/or your DualBox Master if you have low health. (NOTE: Both players must have Follow Felankor v2.5.0 or higher for this feature to work)
9) Allows your friends and guild members to make your character do emotes (e.g. sit, stand, wave, point, fart etc) (Don't worry, this can be disabled!)
10) Allows you to ban certain players from sending you whisper commands.
11) Option to automatically create a set of macros that send whisper commands to your targeted player.
12) Automatically announces to your group/raid when you go AFK; telling them that they can make you follow them using the !ff_follow whisper command.
13) Tells you when another player starts following you of their own accord. (NOTE: Both players must have Follow Felankor v2.1.0 or higher for this feature to work)
14) Shows you if group/party members are using Follow Felankor by adding an icon on their party portrait.

#############################

No problem! Some addons have been abandoned, so it's nice to know which I should keep waiting for updates on, and which I should start looking for replacements for, or learning to live without. Glad to hear this one's coming - my friends & I love it!

As I had access to the Beta I was hoping to have an update ready before this patch was released. However around the time when AddOns were enabled on the Beta something came up and I haven't had time to work on the AddOn (I haven't actually played WoW for a few weeks). I'm hoping to get started on it asap. Please bare with me, I will get an update for you as soon as I can.

I think the raid warning would be great, especially if it also uses the raid alert sound effect when af breaks!

Sorry it has taken me a while to reply. I took a 2 month break from WoW to work on another project for a friend. I'm glad you like my addon. I will look into adding a popup message, thank you for the suggestion. I was thinking maybe a raid style message (i.e. the one that appears in the center of your screen when the raid leader speaks) as I think this would stop it becoming an annoyance but still do the job. What do you think?

I'm due to go on holiday in a couple of days and I might not get a chance to do it before I go, but I will add it as soon as I can.



Thank you for reporting this and for finding out what was causing it lol I haven't bought any new mounts since adding that feature so I didn't notice. I will get this fixed for you ASAP.

Thanks

I figured out what is causing this. When a new mount is learned, it can change the number order of the mounts. Since the variable is saved as the mount number, new mounts learned can change which mount is set as the default. Saving the variable the mount name would fix this, I imagine.

Pretty much makes it so i have to make two macro buttons (fly, ground) when one would suffice since the Celestial Steed does both.

Re: FF right click menu

Originally posted by Jaim Sandar
I may be wrong, but I am pretty sure FF used to provide an addition to the menu that drops down when right clicking on a party portrait, from which I could send some FF commands to that player.
A month or two ago I noticed that the menu selections were gone, but a week or so later returned. Maybe my memory is faulty, but I thought that was what happened.
Anyway, the menu is gone again (or still?).
I suppose I should play the normal troubleshooting game to see if another AddOn might be affecting this, but I just haven't taken the time yet to do that. Note, however, that a friend I play with regularly, but who uses many less AddOns than I, also has noticed this.

Thank you.
Sorry I forgot to put this in the release notes. I had to remove that menu due to Blizzard's security. The FF menu was breaking the "Set Focus" menu item and causing an error message. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about this problem due to the security which Blizzard have put in place.

Sorry I didn't respond to your previous request, was busy & didn't get on those alts for awhile. We just tested the new version last night, and the Celestial Steed is working now! Also my bf has been using the non-beta updated version since it was released, and he's had no problems at all with random disabling or anything. Looks like it's all good!

Thanks again!!

I think I've fixed this problem now but I don't have Celestial Steed to test it myself. Could you please download the latest version (not the beta) and let me know if it's working.

Thanks,

Glad to hear it's working

Are you able to give me a screenshot of the tooltip for Celestial Steed? If not can you please type the contents of the tooltip exactly as it is written?

Thank you both for your help.
