Equus Infinata
Version: v2.2.0
by: luckrunsout [More]
Equus Infinata (really bad Latin for "Infinite Horses") is a replacement for the default Mount and Companion Pet UI, found in the Character pane under Pets. It provides more detail on each mount/pet than the normal display, and allows you to filter your mount/pet lists into several categories for easier browsing. You can then summon a random mount/pet from any of these filters through slash-commands. It also allows you to inspect other player's companions and mounts.
All Infinata addons are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial 2.0.

Slash Commands
The slash command is "/equus" or "/ei" for short. You can use these in the following context:
"/ei pet <filters>" - Summons a pet from the given filters. No filters will summon a pet at random from your entire collection.
"/ei mount <filters>" - Summons a mount from the given filters. No filters will summon a pet at random from your entire collection.
"/ei dismiss" - Dismisses your current companion pet.

Filters?
Currently, Equus can filter your mounts by speed, species, colour and number of passengers. It can also filter companion pets by species, colour and type (ground/flying). You can use all of these filters in the slash commands. This is a brief set of examples:
"/ei mount" - Will summon a random mount from your entire collection.
"/ei mount kodo" - Will summon a random kodo.
"/ei mount !nopassengers" - Will summon a mount which has space for at least one passenger.
"/ei mount kodo raptor" - Will summon a random kodo or raptor.
"/ei mount kodo !grey" - Will summon a random kodo which is not grey.
"/ei mount !blue slowground" - Will summon a random mount which is not blue, and travels at 60% ground speed.

Checkboxes?
From v2.0 onwards, each pet and mount has a checkbox next to it. You can use these to set up your own list of mounts to summon via the slash command, by ticking the mounts you want and using the command "/ei mount checked" or "/ei pet checked". The "checked" filter is also compatible with other filters (e.g. "/ei mount checked slowground").

Inspect?
From v2.1 onwards, you can inspect the pets and mounts of any same-faction player who also has Equus Infinata installed. Simply target and inspect them as you normally would, and select the new 4th tab "Pets" at the bottom of the interface.

Keybindings
From v2.2 onwards, you can set up 5 keybinds for easy access to your mounts/pets. Choose a button through Blizzard's normal keybind interface, and define the filters in the Equus options panel.

Useful Macro
Here's a useful macro that, when clicked, will either cancel your current mount if you're mounted, or summon a random mount if you're not (similar to clicking a mount on your action bar) (Note: This will not dismount you if you're flying, to save some painful landings).
/script if IsMounted() and not IsFlying() then Dismount() else Equus_Mount("All") end
If you're sensible enough to know not to hit this button when 60 feet up in the air, then here is a version that will always dismount, regardless of whether you're flying:
/script if IsMounted() then Dismount() else Equus_Mount("All") end
Credits
Thanks to Jomar and daxdax, authors of Mountiful, which this addon is based on.
Thanks to all my friends in <Simia Infinata> on the Horde side of Nordrassil-EU who helped out with beta testing and feature suggestions, as well as putting up with my various moans and rants. Also for letting me steal their naming scheme.
Thanks to UFTimmy for the helpful macro.
And of course, thanks to everyone else who's submitted feature ideas and bug reports. The addon wouldn't be where it is without your support.

Sorry, I explained that badly. Blizzard's slash commands like that can cancel mounts. Even if a person hand-types a macro like "/run CancelShapeshiftForm()" then it'll work. But if you make an addon with a custom slash command which runs that exact same command, it fails.

Unfortunately not. My main is a druid. Personally I feel shapeshifts should be kept seperate to mounts, but I understand why some people feel differently.

I might look at adding them in, but if I recall correctly there are some issues with slash-commands casting shapeshifts (I know for a fact that they can't cancel them, I've tried every trick in the book to do it).
/cancelform doesn't work for you? I use /cancelform in my mounting macro so I can mount while still in shapeshift form so I don't have to manually cancel it.

Thanks very much! I'm pretty shocked to see 11 favourites in the first day.

Also wanted to add another quick note to commenters: Please, for the love of God, don't correct my Latin. I really don't care how wrong it is.

Quick note: I've been developing this addon on Curse / CurseForge for quite some time. I will be checking and updating here on WoWinterface, but Curse is where most of the bug reports and feature suggestions are.
