Creature Comforts  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.3.0.120
by: Phanx [More]

This addon is no longer maintained or supported.

If you are interested in permanently adopting Creature Comforts,
and have published at least one WoW addon,
please send me a PM!


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Combines your Call, Dismiss, Feed, Mend, and Revive Pet abilities into one button.

Out of combat, Creature Comforts will revive your pet if it’s dead, call your pet if it’s unsummoned, dismiss your pet if you’re holding the Ctrl key (or if you middle-click), feed your pet if its health is below 50% and Feed Pet is available, or mend your pet if its health is low (or it has a debuff you can dispel with the Improved Mend Pet talent).

In combat, Creature Comforts will call your pet if it’s unsummoned, revive your pet if it’s dead, dismiss your pet if you’re holding the Ctrl key, or mend your pet otherwise. Due to Blizzard’s restrictions on editing macros while in combat, if your pet is dead but was despawned when you entered combat, you’ll need to hold the Shift key (or right-click) to tell the macro to revive it.

Usage

Options are available in the Interface Options window. You can type “/cc” or “/creaturecomforts” to open the window directly to the Creature Comforts panel.

The first time you run Creature Comforts, you’ll need to create the macro it will manage. You can do this from the configuration panel (press the “Create Macro” button) or from the Blizzard macro window (create a character-specific macro named “AutoPet”).

Language Support

Creature Comforts is compatible with English, Deutsch (deDE), Español (esES/esMX), Français (frFR), Русский (ruRU), 한국어 (koKR), 简体中文 (zhCN), and 正體中文 (zhTW) game clients.

Creature Comforts is translated into English, Español, and 简体中文.

Credits

Creature Comforts is based heavily on Tekkub’s Buffet, and indeed began as a simple modification of Buffet to feed my pet instead of myself. I was also inspired by Gazmik’s Fizzwidget Feed-O-Matic, Nirek’s FeedMachine (which in turn is based on Beerke’s King of the Jungle), and Tekkub’s FuzzyLogic. After trying all of these addons, I set out to combine their essential features into a single, transparent, easy-to-use, no-assembly-required package.

toc

checked the toc, the config files were commented out. my updater updated it from wowace and it looks like you forgot to uncomment those files. i have not tested in game yet, but i'm assuming it should work fine now.

No, I didn't forget to uncomment them. WowAce was spitting out errors last night when I tried to commit the config files, so I left a big fat note in the changelog there to the effect that if you wanted configuration, to download from WoWI. I was able to commit the config files on WowAce today, so your updater's bulldozing shouldn't cause any further issues.

And as a general note, WowAce doesn't get any more updates than WoWI or Curse, and updates are always posted to WoWI first. Also, stuff committed on WowAce can take anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours to actually be available, so after an update WowAce will actually have an older version than WoWI until its packaging script catches up.

ok

did a clean install from the version here on wowinterface. checked the lib folder and the toc, and everything is in order. the options are still not showing up though and no errors are being thrown to bugsack.

i don't see how, but could it be a problem with addon loader again?

I don't see how, but you could easily find out by disabling AddonLoader and logging in.

The options are not showing up for me as well. I do see this comment in the log file:

"** Loading table of contents Interface\AddOns\CreatureComforts\CreatureComforts.toc
Error loading Interface\AddOns\CreatureComforts\Lib\tekKonfig-AboutPanel.lua
Error loading Interface\AddOns\CreatureComforts\Lib\tekKonfig-Button.lua
Error loading Interface\AddOns\CreatureComforts\Lib\tekKonfig-Checkbox.lua
Error loading Interface\AddOns\CreatureComforts\Lib\tekKonfig-Heading.lua"

Looking in the Lib directory the file names do not have a dash in them. Could that be the issue? Not knowing spit about the toc file, so just guessing.

Should be working now. Also, the addon should work on the new Russian servers; please report any errors.

Thank you for a very nice addon, it works like a charm and it took me a minimal amount of time to get used to it. If there was one word for it, it would be intuitive.

Version 2.4.3.36 is up. I've changed the default feeding behavior to not automatically consume food items when your pet is already happy. There is an option to override this behavior and automatically consume food items regardless of your pet's happiness level. The new behavior means that if your pet is already happy, using the AutoPet macro will simply cast Feed Pet and give you the glowing hand cursor; if you didn't mean to use the macro, you can just ignore the cursor. If for some reason you really did want to feed your already-happy pet, you can select a food item just as if you'd cast the spell manually.

I do want some feedback on the option for this behavior. What's a good way to describe it? Currently the option is entitled "Feed when happy", and the tooltip description reads "Automatically use food even when your pet is already happy". However, I feel this is unclear, and inconsistent with the other options. What do you think?

I just tried out version 2.4.3.36-beta and had to recreate the macro for it to work properly. Initially, it wouldn't let me feed my pet when it was content but after deleting and recreating the macro with the new version... it seems to be working fine.

Note: Personally I don't consider this a bug but rather a note to users. Thanks!

Would "happy" also include "content" or do you think that might be an option for any lazy hunters that happened to be low on food? As far as your description thus far, seems pretty clear to me.

No; if your pet is less than happy, it's doing less damage than it should be, and there's plenty of room for improvement. If actual happiness values were available through the API, I'd remove the option altogether and just make the default behavior to consume food items only when your pet was down at least 315 happiness (the full happiness gained from consuming a level-appropriate food item is 350 @ 35 per tick). Unfortunately this information isn't available, so I can only see when the pet isn't happy.

And no, I don't consider having to recreate the macro a bug... I'm not sure why that would be the case, and I didn't experience that myself, but the addon is marked "beta" for a reason.

I'm still finding that I have to manually feed my pet now when it's content with version 2.4.3.36-beta... I really thought it was working ok but it's gone back to this weird behavior now even after letting the app replace the macro. /sigh
