Handy Notes - Netherwing Eggs (Retail)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v1.09 R
by: Taraezor [More]

Places customisable and annotated pins on the World Map and Minimap for every known Netherwing Egg spawn location in Shadowmoon Valley.

Over 100 unique, annotated and double-precision spawn locations
Choice of resizable pin textures

How to Use
Instal like any other AddOn. Requires Handy Notes to work. Configurable. Please download the Retail or BCC version as necessary.

Players are able to collect Netherwing Eggs to gain Netherwing reputation. At exalted you may purchase a set of amazing Netherwing Drake mounts.

The eggs spawn in three areas in Shadowmoon Valley in Outland. All locations have been personally verified by this author.

Fortress: There will never be more than two Fortress eggs at any one time. Assuming you mine both at the same time, you can expect the first to respawn about 1.5 hours later and the second by the 2 hour mark.

Mine: In the Mine there will never be more than six eggs at any one time. Assuming you mine all six at the same time, then expect the first four to spawn from 1 to 1.5 hours, the 5th from 1.5 to 2 hours and the 6th from 2 to 2.5 hours.

Ledge: Out on the Ledge there will never be more than four eggs at any one time. Assuming you mine all four at the same time, then expect the first 2 to spawn from 2 to 3 hours with the 3rd at about 3 hours.

A pin highlighting where to stand to easily complete the The Not-So-Friendly-Skies... daily is included.

(This plugin is the logical successor to my old Netherwing Eggs AddOn, from which I pulled my location data)

* VERIFIED egg at (69.10,88.22) with double precision
* Undocumented from v3.02: build number test is now properly numeric. Once we hit build "10" (currently "8" for BfA) my string equation logic would have failed

* Handle "upvalue" problem for players running Vanilla / Lua 5.0 and whom wish to at least include this AddOn in their collection

* OMG! New location in the Mine! (67.95,82.47)

== v1.23 - 26th August 2017

* Standardised with other of my AddOns: When Control key is down, NO NEED for "show coordinates" option to be on. I.e. link in chat (with coordinates) regardless
* Visibilty check for index [1] before Hide/Show of all icons = aids efficiency / fps
* Menu allows an option to be enquired upon and not just changed

* Adjustments to a few locations from single to double precision. About 75% are double now

* The Not-So-Friendly Skies... Tooltip would error from minimap due to bad array index

Exclamation Crippling repeating error in v3.01 !!!

197x NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs-3.01.lua:1074: bad argument #1 to 'unpack' (table expected, got nil)
[C]: in function `unpack'
NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs-3.01.lua:1074: in function <NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs.lua:1056>
NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs-3.01.lua:1208: in function <NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs.lua:1201>
NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs-3.01.lua:2017: in function <NetherwingEggs\NetherwingEggs.lua:2006>

(*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = "table expected, got nil"

The above error repeats so rapidly it hangs WoW within 30 seconds, on my system. Reverting to v3.00 fixes this.

Let me know if there's any other useful info I can provide :-)

I cant get this to work using the codes, you provided to use in chat. Nor is there any 'addon' options. I enabled it before logging in, which say's WoW read it successfully, but still no avail.
