Mounted is patched for 4.0
with the mount changes in 4.0 Mounted is due for another rewrite until then Mounted will work just like before (but since mount speeds now scale with skill they have all been set to max Mounted 3 will remove the speed selection options all together)
With the coming of WoW 3.0 we may now have as many mounts as we want since we learn them and do not have to carry them in you bags.
Thus my dilemma which mount shall i use and how can i chose them easily out of the mess of mounts found in the mounts tab.
Out of this Mounted was born. Instead of mucking about with secure code and make buttons that have to be skinned and carefully placed in your UI i instead chose to utilize the macro functions. Thus enabling you to simply use any actionbar mod.
So what does mounted actually do for you?
It will create a macro called Mounted in your global macro space this way you only use one slot and not one per character.
It will scan through all your mounts (and druid forms travel/flight) and create a list and sort them by speed.
It will then analyze your surroundings and edit the Mounted macro.
If you can fly then it will chose a random flying mount from the fastest category it will also chose a random ground mount to be used when using a modifier with the macro.
If you can not fly it will simply chose a random ground mount from the fastest category.
If you enter combat it will change the macro to a combat macro which you can edit in the Blizzard Addon options.
If you are indoors it will also change to the combat macro.
A new mount will be chosen for you every time you mount up.
every single macro type is customizable (editing of the attack macro is highly recommended)
macros can by customized with tags that get replaced when the macro is parsed (see below for list of available tags)
custom macros are saved globally so you will have access to them from all your characters (per account)
you can preview your macros before deciding on them
you can set priorities for mounts from 0-10 (0 = will never be selected, 10 will most likely be selected)
Macro tags are:
<ff> == Random Flying Mount (fastest speed increase)
<f310> == Random Flying Mount (310% speed increase)
<f280> == Random Flying Mount (280% speed increase)
<f60> == Random Flying Mount (60% speed increase)
<gf> == Random Ground Mount (fastest speed increase)
<g100> == Random Ground Mount (100% speed increase)
<g60> == Random Ground Mount (60% speed increase)
<g0> == Random Ground Mount (0% speed increase)
<gaq> == Random Ahn'Qiraj Mount
<s#> == will be replaced with the spellname of spellid # (will not insert rank so will scale)
If any mounts are missclassified please let me know i set up the DB by manually scanning wowhead.com so mistakes will happen!
any suggestions or improvements are most welcome please open a ticket about them.
FYI if a Mount can not me classified it will send a message to your chat window simply copy this message in a ticket or here and i will add the mount to the correct category asap
Mounted is being developed on wowace. I will try to post any beta/release versions of the Mounted ASAP
- another fix to vahjir (reported by doxxx)
- fixes localization error (vashjir is still not working correctly it seams (this will get fixed in the 3.0 version which is getting closer to being done)
- drycode fix for vashjir
- update libs
- fix flying macro selection (blizzard screwed up yet again sigh)
- use alternate approach to attempt to fix WG
- pull in latest LibMounts to account for X-53 Touring Rocket
- fix WG for good this time (hopefully)
- adjust Mounted for new AQ flag in LibMounts
- fix ground mount speeds thanks thelibrarian
- fix for WG screwyness (THANKS BLIZZARD)
- fix DB upgrade path should fix errors on all characters
- comment out vashjir stuff we don't need it till dec 7th
- fix login error
- make LibMounts an opt deps
- bumb toc
- somewhat ugly hack to get this working with 4.0 (simply shove all mounts to their max speed assume we have max speed skill (since it doesnt really matter anymore)) also move to LibMounts-1.0 for mount type selection (this will play a much bigger roll in Mounted 3)
- removing 1.3-2.0 upgrade path file (if you are still using 1.3 tough luck)
- fix toc
- add Celestial Steed to the mountBypass
- Add X-53 Touring Rocket to parser bypass
- since ACE3 sandboxes the frame widget we make our own (instead of the close button we have a cancel button and removed the resizing ability)
- update for 3.3
- should fix the flyable but no skill problem
- some scanner code optimization
compleate rewrite of the original code alowes for alot more flexibility in choosing macros for different events and alowes you to add spells as mounts (warlock underwater breathing (glyphed) as watermount)
fixed other locale zone names
fixed error for Death Knights
small fix to the macro parser it will no longer error if you feed it a nil macro
fixed CheckDB function that errored on some SV files
this should fix spell mounts if they are the only once available
another attempt at fixing the GetRandomMount bug that shouldn't be possible
made the GetRandomMount() function less prone to error if macros get screwed up
forgot to remove debug print
fixed Turbo-Charged Flying Machine wtb consistent mount tooltips
applies all the changes from the 1.2 betas found on wowace and fixes the scanner for 3.0.3
frFR should now be fully supported
update deDE should now correctly identify mounts
removed the need to localize Dalaran and Wintersgrasp
fixed edge case of mounts not deleting if you delete a character and create a new one with the same name on the same realm
frFR should be working 100%
last priorities reset i swear (goes and hides in a corner)
removed the giant mount DB tooltip scanning is so much cooler (thanks NightHawkTheSane for letting me adapt some of your code)
aquaform macro is now activated when you are swimming
alright scaling mounts should be fixed and working 100% in 1.1.6 but since i don't have one someone should tell me if i broke them :)
also the priorities lists shouldn't be reset anytime soon unless i find a serious error in my database (minor errors will fix themselves now without resetting the DB)
fixed the parser
if the same tag appears twice in a macro it will use the same mount for each
fixed headless horseman mount and removed the scaling mount tag in favor of simply adding the id to each db (gives more priority options this way)
travel/flightforms will be used for druids/shamans when they are moving
found a much more elegant way to get around the whole item vs spell issue :) no more need to blacklist
alright version 1.0.6 will prevent mounts being used if an item of the same name is in your bags
also macro now changes on UNIT_SPELLCAST_START (this is when the server tells us that the cast has started doing it when the cast is initialized by the client is a bad thing (can cause you to /say part of the macro because you are changing the macro at the same time you are using it))
fixed: Black Hawkstrider, Emerald Raptor
fixed Swift Purple Wind Rider beign in the wrong db
fix slash cmd
macro will now properly change when moving from indoors to outdoors
fixed mounts being classified falsely due to a parsing error (any other mistakes should be actual db mistakes)
reset the db if old db is found
fixed 40% options error on non druids/shamans
