RandomMount-TBC

Version: 0.0.9
by: Skafte [More]

Addon that allows for random mount summoning in Classic TBC. Will choose between any of the mounts currently in your bags and in your spellbook (for paladins and warlocks). Prefers faster mounts over slower mounts and prefers flying mounts over ground mounts in flyable areas.

In the current version you'll first have to install the addon, then make a macro that looks something like the following (can be tweaked)

Code:
/run RnM_Randomize()
/click [nomounted] RnM_Button
/dismount [mounted]
Then finally bind this macro to a key using whatever method you prefer.

There's no UI for this, the premise is that any mount in your bags is a mount you'd like to use. If you'd like to exclude spell mounts there's a single variable you can change close to the top of RandomMount.lua

Scarab mount?

Hey guys, this addon rocks for TBC Classic!

But my friend was lucky enough to be a scarab lord and get the mount (yeah i know, screw that guy). He says it doesn't work w/ this addon.

Do I just need to add the item ID for him? Or would it need more work like the engy mount did (thanks for that btw)? Thanks for any info you could provide!

Yeah, I tried to fix a minor issue in 0.0.8 but broke something else. Not sure if it's possible to unpublish so I just published 0.0.9 instead. Good to hear it works.

The macro doesn't appear to work anymore. Push it and nothing happens

Engi Flying mounts

It seems engi flying mounts aren't included? The macro will always mount me on my windrider and never my engi only mount. Unless maybe I have an old version.

Edit: I looked at the LUA and the mount is in the LUA I'm not sure why it's not working. Perhaps the engi mount's item type isn't mount? I have no idea how to look that up though

Thanks, good to have confirmation that the flying mount selection works, I haven't gotten to 70 yet.

Yeah, it might be good to have some form of UI, could be nice to be able to prefer fast ground mounts over slow flying mounts in certain zones etc. I'll look into it.

this addon could easily become as good as litemount is on retail and has a great standing so far. good stuff.

I've added a fix for this in version 0.0.6. This might cause newly bound mounts to not be considered until the bags are otherwise updated or a ui reload has been performed though.

Hm, I suppose I hadn't considered what would happen if you have a boe mount in your bags that isn't bound to you. I'll see if I can get that fixed.

The error regarding a nil RnM_Randomize might be because you disabled the addon but you're still trying to use a macro that tries to use it?

Unending loop for prompt when used with a new mount

I tried this with a new mount and it got stuck in a loop where it was prompting me to bind it to my char. I had to relog and accept the mount without the macro first.

UPDATE:

Ok, logged back on and it was still stuck looping, then I could clear it by hearthing. I tried to use it again and it went on the loop again. Now I can't use the char at all

In the event it isn't your addon, I submitted a ticket to Blizz just to see what happens.

FURTHER UPDATE:

I disabled all addons and relogged and the error cleared. Then when I dismounted and relogged again, I got the following error:

1x [string "RnM_Randomize()"]:1: attempt to call global 'RnM_Randomize' (a nil value)
[string "RnM_Randomize()"]:1: in main chunk
[string "=[C]"]: in function `RunScript'
[string "@FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua"]:2160: in function `?'
[string "@FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua"]:4825: in function `ChatEdit_ParseText'
[string "@FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua"]:4488: in function `ChatEdit_SendText'
[string "@FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua"]:2916: in function
[string "=[C]"]: in function `RunMacroText'
[string "@FrameXML\SecureTemplates.lua"]:424: in function `handler'
[string "@FrameXML\SecureTemplates.lua"]:616: in function

Locals:
(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = "attempt to call global 'RnM_Randomize' (a nil value)"

Not sure what to do now.

ANOTHER UPDATE:

Ok, that first part was not caused by your addon but this lua error seems legit so I hope this info is helpful.

No, it will not. I could attempt to implement that though.

Druid Forms

Will this use a druid travel/cat form if the druid can not mount. For example when in combat, moving, in water, or in an dungeon?
