HiyoSilver

Version: 1.2.0
by: ClemSnide [More]

---INTRODUCTION---

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear.... A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty "Hi-yo Silver!"

Remember when you first got to the 40th level and could now buy a mount? Remember grtinding till you were about 44th level and rich enough to afford it? Remember going to Eastvale Logging Camp or Menethil Harbor and picking out a horse (other races, just play along)? Remember making up a macro that went

/say To me, my fiery charger!
/use Black Stallion Bridle

Then remember hitting level 50 and working your way into Un'Goro Crater? Arriving at the Gryphon master... "To me, my fiery charger!" Finding a Rich Thorium Deposit that, miraculously, hadn't been harvested by a Draenel Shaman Jewelcrafter? Dismounting, mining... "To me, my fiery charger!" A few feet away, seeing a yellow power crystal, which you needed lots of? Dismounting, opening... "To me, my fiery charger!" Oops, right next to it was a Bloodpetal Sprout you hadn't seen! Dismounting, opening... "To me, my fiery charger!" Whoa! A Diemetrodon attacks! Dismounting, fighting... "To me, my fiery charger!"

Well. Even I got tired of my own macro after that. Yet I did enjoy saying something upon mounting, at the edge of a city perhaps, and I thought it added color to my character. (I role-play. It's a role-playing server in a role-playing game. Get a clue.) In fact, I could imagine saying different things when I mounted. A useful little AddOn called "QuickMountEquip" came my way and I knew that you could do things automatically when you hitched up your horse. So, a little later, HiyoSilver was born.

---WHAT IT DOES---

HiyoSilver allows you to make up a list of clever things to say when you mount or dismount your horse (or mechanical Forest Strider, or jungle cat, or what-have-you). It also imposes a cooldown timer. Mount up within five minutes (the default) of having said your line and you will simply get back on your mount, silently.

Definitely going to check this one out
Small request though, is it possible for you to change the icon of the main window? The one up in the left corner? I don't know why but it bugs the crap out of me.

Dag, and I worked so hard making it and getting it aligned and everything!

If you discard the file UI-Hiyo-TopLeft.blp from the HiyoSilver folder, you won't see the graphic any more, although you wil see a small green square. I'll cobble together a replacement that will be completely invisible, just for you. (To-morrow though, I'm VERY tired at the moment.)

OK, I lied. I just uploaded a graphic that will do what you want; it's listed as a patch to HiyoSilver. Search for UI-Hiyo-TopLeft.blp if you can't find it.

Much appreciated about the picture, I don't know why it annoyed me, *shrug* Really appreciate it!

However, i didn't get to play much with the mod, I don't know why but without having installed it before, without changing any settings or editing anything related to Hiyo, I got a nasty error upon mounting and dismounting.

I'm going to keep you posted about the debug info i got, I'm still going to try this baby out!

Yup, there were some errors having to do with taxis (like bats or gryphons). Oddly enough, just having used a taxi could make an error crop up out of the blue.

However, that should be fixed in v1.0.2, which also doesn't have strange messages crop up in the Chat window.

This didn't occur on taxi mounts though, but on my regular sabers, both my Reins of the Striped Frostsaber and Reins of the Swift Frostsaber.

I'm going to check today if any of my other mods are interfering with Hiyo. Might be Eloquence or RoleplayingHelper

I doubt if they would, but I'll install them and check it out.

EDIT: Using your report (among others) I was able to track down the bug and squish it. I believe that it popped up if you mounted without entering any text... which, sorry to say, I didn't test for.

Version 1.0.3 should fix this, but plase let me know if it doesn't! Your reports are valuable, since I only have one character with a mount and so I'm testing a limited range of possibilities. As always, if someone wants to donate a Qiraji Battletank, I'll definitely test that out.
