Version: 1.9.9

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.

red flying cloud

i just updated from 1.6.7 to 1.6.9 and haven't logged back in yet, so this may fix it, but the cloud wasn't being detected for via smart mounting. while in dungeons, i have to spam my macro keybind until it randomly tries to use the cloud in order to mount. just wanted to mention it while i was here and thinking about it in case it wasn't covered.

thanks!

edit: now that i'm thinking about it, i do have a ground only mount in there also. so 2 flying, one combo and one land only, and the macro is trying to use flying mounts and telling me i can't use them there.

maybe i need recreate macro for some reason?

It should work, but I don't have either mount to test it out.

Can you do this: Type /livestock debug, then summon while swimming and send me what it prints out?

AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!
You sneaky devil you!!!
You fixed the issue with multiple non-combat pets showing up!!

And yes, the mount issue is resolved as well.

Thank-you so much for this.
I just can't imagine playing WoW without this addon now.

Very serious problem arises

Since this morning (patch day), I get messages in various zones that "requires apprentice riding skill".
I have all the flight skills, so I know that's not the problem.

Livestock won't let me mount any mount at all. It tells me for any mount that I need the requisite riding skill.

(yesterday it was telling me I "cannot use that mount while swimming" while I was on dry land)

edit*****

this problem really does seem to only be in certain zones.
I needed to get some Outland stuff done, and Livestock just completely stopped working the whole time I was there.

Once back in Dalaran, it started to work properly again.

I can fix this by typing /livestock and opening the menu for ground and flying, but it's a bit annoying to have to do that daily just to be able to get a flying mount. Using /livestock reset did not correct the problem either.
I had something similar happen to me today in Raventusk Village (Hinterlands): I kept getting the message "cannot use this mount while swimming". On dry land?

And strangely, when I type /livestock, and checked which mounts I had selected for that toon.. half my mounts were missing.

When I got back to town, it was all as it was before.

Anyway, it's a temporary fix. But at least my Magria has a baby to follow around.
Glad to hear. Another possible solution is to install PetJournalEnhanced. This will let you better sort the PetJournal since Blizzard didn't feel like sorting in alphabetical order was important. Once it's sorted, Livestock will follow that sorting.

Well, I couldn't notice any major limitations, tested with a level 26 and later with a 41 I remembered, any ground mount worked (admittedly, I skipped several of the racial mount recolors) including those flying mounts that can be used as ground mounts, while other flying mounts required Expert Riding, and the 61 could use any flying mount.
Exceptions:
- tailoring/engineering mounts, of course, those threw "You can't use that mount"
- the AQ mounts said they required Journeyman Riding on the level 26, on the 41 they stated "You can't use that here" correctly.
- Sandstone Drake said the same, Journeyman Riding on the 26 on the 41 it required Expert Riding. However, both can summon it while submerged in water I think this mount is a very special case altogether.

Yes, but it's not clear which mounts those are at the moment. And the game doesn't tell you until you try to summon.
