Livestock  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.2.0
by: Kharthus [More]
Livestock: For all your companion needs
Now that your pets and mounts don't take up space in your bags, Livestock lets you manage them intelligently. This addon sorts your companions into land mounts, flying mounts, and vanity pets. Then, with the push of a button, you can randomly summon any of the three, or designate a favorite pet to have out on command.

You can also have Livestock always keep a pet by your side, and have it dismiss your vanity pet when you are in PVP battle and it would give away your position.

You can even tell Livestock to put you on a random land or flying mount depending on whether the area you're in lets you fly or not. Underwater or in combat, Livestock can also be configured to cast certain spells relating to travel, such as Path of Frost or Ghost Wolf.

New to version 1.2 and above, you can designate certain pets or mounts to be called in certain zones or subzones. Ride in style on a Frostwolf Howler while in Alterac Valley, and then switch to your favorite color of Mechanostrider while in Ironforge. Livestock will let you make sure that you have your good luck pet out whenever you're in Ulduar or Trial of the Crusader.
You can summon critters, land mounts, and flying mounts in various ways. See the ReadMe file for more information.
Localization Help:
Livestock currently only works for the enUS, deDE, eES, ruRU, and frFR clients. (The client is only localized completely for the enUS client, and assistance in localizing is always appreciated!) If you are on another client, Livestock will load but will show all English strings. If you are willing to help localize the addon for your language, please let me know - you'd only need to provide some simple translations and I'd do the rest. You can reach me through the Private Message system available here.
Slash Commands:
There are currently eight slash commands for the addon. View the ReadMe file for a more in-depth explanation. /livestock and /ls both work for commands.
  • Use "/livestock" to bring up the main menu bar.
  • Use "/livestock reset" to move the four Livestock Buttons back to their default positions.
  • Use "/livestock scale <scale>" to change the size of the Livestock Buttons.
  • Use "/livestock prefs" as a shortcut to access the preferences, described in the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock redo" to force Livestock to reset to default. Useful for squashing buggy behavior at the cost of having to reset your settings.
  • Use "/livestock [zone/subzone]" to designate a pet or mount for your current zone or subzone. For more information, check the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock [mount/nomount/pet/nopet]" to add/remove pets and mounts from the random summon list. Uses your active summon.
  • Use "/livestock debug" - Prints out useful debugging information that can assist the developers in solving problems. Use the command again to turn off the debugging output.


Livestock Options and Preferences:
You can find the options for Livestock in the Addons tab of the Blizzard Interface options menu. The "Livestock" tab has the major options, while options for pets, Smart Mounting, and zone/subzone preferences are in sub-menus. You can read more about the preferences in the ReadMe file.
Bug Reports and Feature Requests
If you find unexpected behavior in Livestock, especially in locales other than enUS, please check the FAQ first to see if it has been addressed and if there is a possible fix.
Please report any bugs you find with Livestock -- or feature requests you'd like to see -- using the "Report Bugs" or "Feature Request" button underneath the Download button, up and to the right. I appreciate your feedback and support.
If you are reporting a bug, the following information is helpful: Any error messages that you saw, where you were (if you can give coordinates, that's excellent), what you were trying to do, what your menus looked like, and what class you play.
Thanks!
Well-deserved credit goes to the following people:
  • Khanthal (Uldum), for the original idea and being our MT so often!
  • A BIG thank you to Sbo (UI and Macros forum, Live) who helped me figure out what was the issue with Dalaran and Wintergrasp as well as suggesting the way to get around it.
  • Grimgear (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping troubleshoot a bug, pointing me to keybindings, and suggesting rotation speed. Also for pointing out how best to adjust my GUI to compensate for localization.
  • Lunessa (UI and Macros forum, Live) for pointing me to Blizzard's instructions on creating panels in the Interface menu.
  • Xelron (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping construct debug messages to get more information and indirectly convincing me to make my own dropdowns.
  • Ro (UI and Macros forum, Beta) for the 3D model viewer idea. Ro also originally suggested making my own custom dropdowns, which I thought was beyond me!
  • Elloria and Tgulics (WoWInterface) for helping spread the word and test the addon in its early stages and for suggesting highlighting the buttons when they're clicked.
  • The MVPs (UI and Macros forum) for providing the resources needed to accomplish this one as well as stepping in and answering my questions from time to time. Special thanks to Alestane and Iriel for helping me with secure handlers.
  • kdkunde (WoWInterface) for helping translate this mod into German so far!
  • Vastilia (WoWInterface) and Yorgl (Curse) for helping translate into French!
  • madbit (WoWInterface) for the Spanish translation.
  • simply (Curse) for the Russian localization.
  • Certainly not least, Brenkite (Uldum) for being my personal troubleshooter and moral support.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: ground mounts

oh my!!! then 3!!! 3!!! 3!!!!
I love my flying characters to be able to purposefully choose a land mount sometimes in flying zones!

1) Would have the same effect, but you wouldn't have the option to enable the same mount as land and not flying or vice versa. Livestock would just combine the two lists behind the scenes and choose a mount from there.

Thank you! It works perfectly now!

Wonderful addon. If I can assist with the Druid side, just let me know.

2) New option to allow failover to flying mounts in no land mounts are picked (easy)
3) Duplicate all flying mounts in the land mount list (easy but makes the menus messy)
4) List of 'acceptable' flying mounts for land use (easy but hard to pick which ones are acceptable)

Possibly others?

Re: Re: Re: ground mounts

the reason I'm asking is that I like having my Obsidian Nightwing as a 2-person mount, even for my toons who can't use flying mounts yet.
But I can't access it through Livestock on my non-flying characters. It's only listed as "Flying".
I tried not selecting any mount in the Ground category and having the Nightwing selected in the "Flying" list, but then Livestock tells me that I have no mount selected.

Livestock used to list a number of mounts under "ground" that looked good both flying and on the ground, such as the Obsidion Nightwing, Celestial Steed, Cenarion War Hyppogryph, Dread Raven, Flameward Hyppogryph, Imperial Quilen, Tyrael's Charger, and Winged Guardian. But it seems as though changes to mounts means that smart-mounting can no longer summon any of these mounts unless you can fly.

Yes, all flying mounts can be used as ground mounts in no-flying zones.

I ask because normally my Obsidian 2-person kitty mount was in both lists, ground and flying. now it is only in the flying list.

(thanks for the updated update, by the way, it seems to work perfectly)

Do you use Glyph of the Stag? If not, that would be awesome, since there'd be a way to force Land Travel Form in Flying areas
I actually came to report that I figured it was that glyph. Took it off, and it defaults to Flight Form.

Ugh, I hate how Blizzard forces the change on Druids. I really liked how it was in LiteMount:

Stand still: Summon mount (flying or ground)
Running (no fly): Summon Cheetah
Running (can fly): Summon flight form
Glyph is fixed. You can have Livestock act just like that by unchecking Enable Flight Form in the settings menu.

Should be tonight. I did a bunch of testing on the PTR, just wanted to test it live on my main to make sure it's mostly working.
