Ravenous Mounts  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.1.5
by: Spontyman [More]

Now looking for translators! If you speak a language other than English and would like to help, I'd be honoured if you got in touch!

Chooses the best Mount for the job without any set-up; it’s all based on your Mount Journal Favorites. Minimal in-game configuration to customise your summoning experience. Can even clone your target's mount (if you have it too)!

How does Ravenous Mounts work?

This AddOn is meant as a replacement for the default in-game "Summon Random Favorite Mount" button by expanding what mounts can be summoned, and, like macros, when used with a keybind can be combined with modifier keys to summon special mount types, like vendor or passenger mounts.

Code:
/ravmounts
When using that command, Ravenous Mounts will loop through your Mount Journal collecting and sorting your mounts into different lists, organised by type. Then, depending on the situation your character is in, summon the optimal mount based on your Favorites in the Mount Journal.

Why?

The default button in the Mount Journal isn't sufficient or smart enough. Ravenous Mounts fixes issues with Blizzard's code like flying detection and adds checks for things like if your character is underwater, and if so, summon a swimming mount. It also does fun things like check when you're in Ahn'Qiraj and can summon your Qiraji Battle Tanks or clone your target/focus' mount for fast-paced mount-offs or just to flex on someone.

Usage

Ravenous Mounts comes with a small handful of commands available for you to check configuration, toggle settings, and see data about your mount lists. Here's a couple of commands illustrated:

Code:
/ravmounts help
Prints out a usage guide much like this one!

Code:
/ravmounts data
Shows you data about your mount lists.

Code:
/ravmounts config
Shows you your configuration settings.

Code:
/ravmounts toggle vendor
Toggles your configuration settings between their two states. Available configuration settings:

- normal
- vendor
- passenger
- swimming
- flex
- clone

Code:
/ravmounts passenger
Forces Ravenous Mounts to call a specific type of mount, regardless of the situation you're in. Available types:

- flying
- ground
- swimming
- vendor
- flying passenger
- ground passenger
- vash'jir
- ahn'qiraj
- chauffeur

As mentioned above, Ravenous Mounts also checks for modifier keys being pressed when the command is run—these keys change what type of mount will be summoned:

- SHIFT — Vendor Mounts
- CONTROL - Passenger Mounts
- ALT - Opposite Mounts (if in flying zone, ground mounts, and vice versa)
- ALT + SHIFT — Mount Special

Special thanks

Phanx for their immensely useful API_CanFly from AnyFavoriteMount.

yj368413 for helping me realise that the AddOn should be language-agnostic.

DJharris71 for loads of bugfixes, mount cloning functionality, and helping greatly in preparing for 9.0.0.

I thought, "Why not?" and we're not on version 2.0.0!

This is thanks to a lot of great work from a handful of folks, and this release is dedicated to everyone who's enjoyed Ravenous Mounts over the years. I hope to be able to maintain it until it can't serve its purpose any longer; until then, thanks for all your feedback and help as we continue forth into murky territory (once again )

Another check-in from the author!

I'll be trying to get this up-to-date for Shadowlands. I hope to have the AddOn ready within a few days.

In case anyone is watching these comments for updates, I’ve added a handful of changes to account for Battle for Azeroth (finally).

Thanks for sticking it out, and please do let me know if you have any further bugfixes!

I also was wondering what a flex mount is? The seem to be flying mounts to me - what are they?
The Chauffeur Mount is for characters which have no mounts but happen to have the Chauffeur heirloom.

Flex Mounts is a term I borrowed from Phanx and their LibFlyable library. It means "flying mounts that look OK on the ground", so the list includes the Jewelcrafting tigers, for example, which are Flying Mounts, but can be used as Ground Mounts without looking too goofy.

Hope that clears it up! Thanks for your support.

Thanks!
Thank you, this all means a lot!

I’ve added your changes and published an update for 8.0.1. I’m glad people enjoy this AddOn, and I’ll try to keep more on top of it for BfA.

BFA Update

I am surprised there is no update for this. this is my favorite random mount addon. It is amazing that Bliz's random mount selection does not default to ground mounts for no flying areas. I hate grabbing a serpent when I am can't fly. Or a flying mount when in the water. All the other mount addons require another ui input to say which are your favorites, when Bliz actually has favorites built into the UI. why double do the work.

Anyway, I made a few changes.
1) required to make it work in BFA: Line 160 change to:
Code:
 local mapID = C_Map.GetMapInfo(1)
(not positive on the old line - or line 160 - I am positive it is the 'local mapID' line)

2) Bliz really needs to make a 'IsFloating' command, I hate having to hit ctrl when on top of the water - just give me a flying mount. - I added a function called 'IsFloating': It works as long as you have a breath bar, otherwise not.

Code:
local function IsFloating()
    local B, b, _, _, a = "BREATH", GetMirrorTimerInfo(2)
    return (IsSwimming() and (not (b==B) or (b==B and a > -1)))
end
Then in line 159 (I think) where it says 'local IsSubmerged' - change this to:
Code:
local submerged = (IsSwimming() and not IsFloating())
Now you have a flying mount when you are floating.

I don't know how to update this on github - but if someone wants to do so, please do.

Thanks!

It is now! Please update to version 1.8.8 where I've (again) shamefully taken some code from Phanx’s AnyFavoriteMount to support this feature.

If you're looking for a fix for 7.3.5, download version 1.8.6 or later.

Temporary fix? Remove the following lines from API_CanFly.lua:

Code:
[0]    =  90267, -- Eastern Kingdoms = Flight Master's License
[1]    =  90267, -- Kalimdor         = Flight Master's License
[646]  =  90267, -- Deepholm         = Flight Master's License
[571]  =  54197, -- Northrend        = Cold Weather Flying
[870]  = 115913, -- Pandaria         = Wisdom of the Four Winds

Ignore what I said.

I’ve updated the AddOn to use the flight ability check from Phanx’s AnyFavoriteMount. I’ve taken/borrowed this code with as much gratitude toward Phanx as one human can possibly have.

I believe this will solve the issue you’re having!

Thanks!

Hmm, are you using the latest version? (1.7.1)

I haven't documented the new feature properly yet—I'll get to that ASAP—but if you're in exclude mode (see below), you need to explicitly set your preferred Passenger Mounts as Favourites in your Mount Journal.

Code:
/ravmounts exclude
If you want to get back to include mode:

Code:
/ravmounts include
