AmmoSwap

Version: 1.2
by: CBruyland [More]

I've taken over this addon from xbjim, a new version compatible with version 2.4 will be released very soon!



This is an ammo swapping addon that uses Babble-Boss-2.2 to determine if a target is worthy of using your good ammo on. And also has a PvP ammo option.

You can either type or use an item link with the slash commands:

/as arrows boss [ammo name or link]
/as arrows pve [ammo name or link]
/as arrows pvp [ammo name or link]

/as bullets boss [ammo name or link]
/as bullets pve [ammo name or link]
/as bullets pvp [ammo name or link]


OR


use the fubar plugin (defaults to mini-map, it can be hidden by right clicking -> hide plugin).

the easiest way to assign ammo this way is:

1. pick up the selected ammo with your mouse
2. right click the mini-map or fubar icon. then goto selected ammo type (ie: arrows -> boss)
3. "drop" the ammo into the text box that appears. it will automatically set the item name.
4. finally, press ENTER to confirm and save that ammo.




* If no ammo for PvE or PvP is found (ie: you run out), it will try to equip boss ammo. if your boss ammo runs out, it will try to equip PvE ammo.



** if you know of mobs that you believe should be classified as bosses (mobs to use "good" ammo on) and arent in babble-boss, let me know and ill add them! just leave a comment. **


--------------------------------------------------------------------
v1.2
- added "constant update" option that will check ammo every second to see if its correct instead of when switching targets. (DEFAULTS TO OFF) *KayossZero request*
- should equip the correct projectile when you switch weapons instead of waiting for a target.
- no longer auto disables for WARRIORS and ROGUES.
- "backup" PvP ammo will use PvE ammo if Boss and PvP are the same. if PvP and PvE are the same it will use Boss ammo as backup. (before it always used Boss ammo)
- nether spike ammo will only equip if your current weapon is a bow/xbow (piror, it would have tried if you had a gun equiped)



v1.1a
- oops, forgot to include a couple libs



v1.1
- bullets option added
- fubar-plugin added (allows easier editing.. i got tired of typing /as arrows boss itemName over and over :P)
- if you run out of a selected ammo WHILE shooting it will try to use the next available ammo. (ie: run out of BOSS ammo while fighting a boss, it will try to use PVE ammo)
- addon will select ammo to use based on your weapon type. (as long as youve entered the ammo names into the addons options)
- possible bug with 'IsEquippedItem' fixed.



v1.0
- Initial release.

suggestion

i really like the idea of this addon but i think it would be more useful if you add an option to auto swap ammo when you enter/exit an instance. Cause i want to use good amo on trash mobs also , and it happenede to me lots of times to forget i have bad ammo till I run out of it.

I have no problem typing the ammo in but if you do get the drag and drop to work so much the better. Once again thank you.
how i do it, is right click to open the menus first. then pick up the ammo, it should stay open and you can then drop it into the areas where you type.

right now it only works if your a hunter (i have it disable itself if your not).. are you saying you would want to use this as a rogue?

i think i get what your saying though.. when you swap your ranged weapon you would like the addon to swap in your selected ammo, right?

hmm, if the weapon is same type as the one replacing it. since it only swaps ammo based on what kind you input.

so if you put your pve as arrows and boss as arrows then switch to a gun, its gonna try to equip those arrows.

it doesnt look at your weapon, only your target and ammo youve assigned to pvp/boss/pve.

so in your situation if your changing from a bow to gun using arrows, its not gonna work.. if your going from a bow to crossbow or vice versa it would work.



i could add the option to set bullets AND arrows, then have it check your weapon and use the appropriate one. would that help?
