Livestock  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.9.8
by: Kharthus [More]
Livestock: For all your companion needs
Now that your pets and mounts don't take up space in your bags, Livestock lets you manage them intelligently. This addon sorts your companions into land mounts, flying mounts, and vanity pets. Then, with the push of a button, you can randomly summon any of the three, or designate a favorite pet to have out on command.

You can also have Livestock always keep a pet by your side, and have it dismiss your vanity pet when you are in PVP battle and it would give away your position.

You can even tell Livestock to put you on a random land or flying mount depending on whether the area you're in lets you fly or not. Underwater or in combat, Livestock can also be configured to cast certain spells relating to travel, such as Path of Frost or Ghost Wolf.

New to version 1.2 and above, you can designate certain pets or mounts to be called in certain zones or subzones. Ride in style on a Frostwolf Howler while in Alterac Valley, and then switch to your favorite color of Mechanostrider while in Ironforge. Livestock will let you make sure that you have your good luck pet out whenever you're in Ulduar or Trial of the Crusader.
You can summon critters, land mounts, and flying mounts in various ways. See the ReadMe file for more information.
Localization Help:
Livestock currently only works for the enUS, deDE, eES, ruRU, and frFR clients. (The client is only localized completely for the enUS client, and assistance in localizing is always appreciated!) If you are on another client, Livestock will load but will show all English strings. If you are willing to help localize the addon for your language, please let me know - you'd only need to provide some simple translations and I'd do the rest. You can reach me through the Private Message system available here.
Slash Commands:
There are currently eight slash commands for the addon. View the ReadMe file for a more in-depth explanation. /livestock and /ls both work for commands.
  • Use "/livestock" to bring up the main menu bar.
  • Use "/livestock reset" to move the four Livestock Buttons back to their default positions.
  • Use "/livestock scale <scale>" to change the size of the Livestock Buttons.
  • Use "/livestock prefs" as a shortcut to access the preferences, described in the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock redo" to force Livestock to reset to default. Useful for squashing buggy behavior at the cost of having to reset your settings.
  • Use "/livestock [zone/subzone]" to designate a pet or mount for your current zone or subzone. For more information, check the ReadMe.
  • Use "/livestock [mount/nomount/pet/nopet]" to add/remove pets and mounts from the random summon list. Uses your active summon.
  • Use "/livestock debug" - Prints out useful debugging information that can assist the developers in solving problems. Use the command again to turn off the debugging output.


Livestock Options and Preferences:
You can find the options for Livestock in the Addons tab of the Blizzard Interface options menu. The "Livestock" tab has the major options, while options for pets, Smart Mounting, and zone/subzone preferences are in sub-menus. You can read more about the preferences in the ReadMe file.
Bug Reports and Feature Requests
If you find unexpected behavior in Livestock, especially in locales other than enUS, please check the FAQ first to see if it has been addressed and if there is a possible fix.
Please report any bugs you find with Livestock -- or feature requests you'd like to see -- using the "Report Bugs" or "Feature Request" button underneath the Download button, up and to the right. I appreciate your feedback and support.
If you are reporting a bug, the following information is helpful: Any error messages that you saw, where you were (if you can give coordinates, that's excellent), what you were trying to do, what your menus looked like, and what class you play.
Thanks!
Well-deserved credit goes to the following people:
  • Khanthal (Uldum), for the original idea and being our MT so often!
  • A BIG thank you to Sbo (UI and Macros forum, Live) who helped me figure out what was the issue with Dalaran and Wintergrasp as well as suggesting the way to get around it.
  • Grimgear (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping troubleshoot a bug, pointing me to keybindings, and suggesting rotation speed. Also for pointing out how best to adjust my GUI to compensate for localization.
  • Lunessa (UI and Macros forum, Live) for pointing me to Blizzard's instructions on creating panels in the Interface menu.
  • Xelron (UI and Macros forum, Live) for helping construct debug messages to get more information and indirectly convincing me to make my own dropdowns.
  • Ro (UI and Macros forum, Beta) for the 3D model viewer idea. Ro also originally suggested making my own custom dropdowns, which I thought was beyond me!
  • Elloria and Tgulics (WoWInterface) for helping spread the word and test the addon in its early stages and for suggesting highlighting the buttons when they're clicked.
  • The MVPs (UI and Macros forum) for providing the resources needed to accomplish this one as well as stepping in and answering my questions from time to time. Special thanks to Alestane and Iriel for helping me with secure handlers.
  • kdkunde (WoWInterface) for helping translate this mod into German so far!
  • Vastilia (WoWInterface) and Yorgl (Curse) for helping translate into French!
  • madbit (WoWInterface) for the Spanish translation.
  • simply (Curse) for the Russian localization.
  • Certainly not least, Brenkite (Uldum) for being my personal troubleshooter and moral support.

Had this problem yesterday, too. Both also added themselves to the selected ground mounts.

It's normal for afterpath days. It sorts itself in some time.
I haven't experienced this, as I was in Dalaran first time I used macro a couple of times, by the time I landed in Howling Fjord, it settled itself already.

Right now I'm using:

/run CallCompanion("CRITTER", random(GetNumCompanions("CRITTER") ) )
Yes, all you need to do is click the "Critters" button under the Livestock Macro Generator after typing /livestock prefs . It generates a macro in your character specific macros that essentially clicks the addon button for picking a random pet. This has the advantage of being able to use macro conditionals like [btn] and [mod].

With all due respect, did you even read the addon description? Or failing that, look at the options available in the mod? I know I tried to make it as accessible as possible, but if it's not as easy to pick out information as I thought it was, I may need to redo it.

If you don't want it to ever use a slow mount, you should need only make sure none of the slow mounts are select in the list.

Smart mounting issue...

Have to hit the smart mount macro (by way of clicking or a bind) a bunch of times to get it to summon a mount. Does not have an issue dismissing it. Have only tested inside a city, out of combat. Any ideas?
Edit: /livestock redo lets the macro work as expected, and a /reloadui cleaned the other issues up, nevermind.

B/f is having problems that those 2 mounts keep being summoned despite him haveing the unchecked in the list.
If Livestock's misbehaving and keeps summoning mounts that you don't have checked, I'm going to have to have a word with it.

The code below should work for any mount. You just need to type it appropriately into the first and second lines (instead of "Emerald Raptor").

If you do that and it's STILL misbehaving, let me know.

Note that the Emerald Raptor also shows up in the flying mounts list.
Next time you're logged into the game, try this:

Run this code first by pasting it into the chat box:

Code:
/run for i=1,GetNumCompanions("MOUNT") do if select(2,GetCompanionInfo("MOUNT",i))=="Emerald Raptor" then print(i) end end
You should see a number pop up on your screen. Next, use this code:

Code:
/run LivestockSettings.Mounts["Emerald Raptor"]={["speed"] = "slow", ["type"] = "land", ["show"] = 0, index = X,}
but replace the X with the number you got in the first step.

Last, use a /reload to reload your UI.

Let me know if that fixes the issue!
