FishermansFriend  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r109-release
by: Ammo [More]
FishermansFriend is a fishing helper addon inspired by FishingAce and improved upon.

FishermansFriend does the following when you equip a fishing rod:
- Enhance Sounds so you can hear the fishing bobber better, and ofcourse restore your original settings when you remove the rod.
- Add doublerightclick autocasting.
- When attempting to doublerightclick autocast FishermansFriend can also use the Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat or automatically apply your best lure.
- Automatically turn on Auto-Looting items when you have a fishing rod equipped.

FishermansFriend uses the itemids for lures etc, and should work on every language client even though the configuration might not be translated in your language yet.

You can open the options panel by /fmf or /fishermansfriend or via Esc -> Interface Options -> AddOns.

Enjoy.

Any chance of an option to exclude using Glow Worms? Don't really need to waste an hour lure for a 5 min daily.

Feature Request

Could we get a way to temporarily bypass applying lures? I was thinking of something like holding in shift while double rightclicking could ignore applying a lure. There are a few occasions where you don't want to use a lure, and a modifier key seems like a good way of handling it.

Be careful not to put 'GetSpellInfo(7620)' in parenthesis.
Thanks, I put in a variant of that, will push with next release.

Ah, with more testing it, I found that it worked just fine, even with my fishing hat equipped ... if I put it on and went in and stared at your code long enough. In fact, it takes about 30s of staring at your code for it to start working. Which happens to be the exact cooldown of the Weather-beaten Fishing Hat from first putting it on to when you can use it.

Can you just put in a check for the GetBestLure() result being off of cooldown as well as there being no weapon enchant on the fishing pole? That ought to fix it, I think. Thanks, Ammo!
Haha, ok I'll go and add that check

There's only one problem: FF doesn't appear to be successfully applying the hat lure, and with the hat on, double-right clicking to cast is broken! Can you fix it?

Lua line?

I would like to see this updated for 3.1. I hope you have time to do this, for I really like this addon.

I do see where you have said to just add a lua?

I, unfortunately, have no idea what you are talking about. What is a lua? And how do you add it.

I hope you can keep it real simple because I don't know squat about programing.

Thanks, Fullerton

With the advent of 3.1 there is yet another new pole "Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole". Add the following to the LUA file and it works fine with it.

[45858] = true, -- Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole

There's a fixed version available from curse.com at http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...ns-friend.aspx

Not sure if Ammo is still around to update it here though.
