Livestock  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.1
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.

Grats! That inventory addon you're using - those mounts aren't really in your bags, right? It must be pulling them from your Companion window, that's a neat idea.

Well no that picture is taken from the live servers not ptr. That is going to be the beauty of this next patch no more missed bag space!

... the idea for the model viewer wasn't mine but I can't track down where the comment was made to include it!
I believe it was Ro on the UI & Macros beta forums.

Dismounting when mounted?

One (hopefully) small request: would it be possible to have the macro behave as a "dismount" key if you are already mounted? So if you do not have a mount, it picks one at random, but if you're mounted, then the keypress simply dismounts you. Right now it dismounts you, but only because it is summoning another mount. Another addon, GoGoMount, uses the behavior I described, but that isn't developed actively it seems and it certainly isn't wotlk-compatible.

Thanks for the suggestion Lorelei, I got annoyed by this too. It *should* be dismounting you now if you're already mounted, but only on the ground - I changed that a couple versions ago. Do you have the most updated version?

as of this morning (either yesterday sometime or today sometime the ptr was updated) it seems to be that livestock isn't really working at all. when typing /livestock it brings up the bar as normal but when clicking on say [Land Mounts] to se up a list the names aren't visable, but the list acts like they're still there, you can scroll over them and see the 3d model. But you can't select or unselect them and as such can't use keybindings to mount/dismount. I can post screenshots in a few if you require.


bit of feedback too: i love the little messages the critters and mounts given when you take the scrollbar outside the box =P
thoigh i am still trying to figure out how a flying machine gets sick.....soon i shall know this sorcery o.O

Thanks for the feedback, Sazdek. If you don't mind posting a screenshot, that'd be helpful. I think I've seen this before, though, and it relates to the bug I have posted at the top of the description. I can't pin it down, but sometimes when Livestock asks WoW for a list of your mounts and critters, WoW answers with all the information except it gives their names as blanks. That explains why the menus look empty but they do the right thing if you hover over the menu items.

If you see that happening, try /console reloadui. I've found that WoW only gives those blank names when you first log in and not when you reload the UI. I'm working on narrowing this down and fixing it for sure, though!

Yes, I do, and I figured out the issue. I had added a /dismount line to my macro back before you changed it, which had the net effect of tricking your code into thinking I was always unmounted when I pressed the button. I took that line out, and it behaves as suggested.

Well i logged in this morning to check it out and get you a screenshot of my problem but it decided to work as intended so it's all good now =P

and now another thing. wasn't there an options button before that you would click to bring up the bar whether or not to include non epic mounts and toggle on/off the other clickable buttons for mounts/critters? just makin sure i'm not losing my mind.

As I said in my previous comment, the bug sometimes happens and sometimes doesn't. I haven't been able to figure out reliably how to force it to happen so I can then work around it, but the next version should be better at avoiding the bug. I think.

and now another thing. wasn't there an options button before that you would click to bring up the bar whether or not to include non epic mounts and toggle on/off the other clickable buttons for mounts/critters? just makin sure i'm not losing my mind.
Yup, there was an options button before. Now those options are in the Blizzard Interface options panel. Check the change log.

Nice job keeping this updated/working out bugs as often as you do. I cannot wait to use this mod when the patch hits. Thank you so much!

How about checking riding skill before trying to fly?

Umm, wouldn't it be a good idea to check whether the player can actually fly before trying to choose a flying mount via "smart" flying? My level 60 DK in Hellfire Peninsula has no flying mounts, and couldn't use them if he did. You need to be checking the riding skill level.

Honestly, "smart" should be the only version, with an override to force a land mount (e.g. a 2nd keybind).

Dwex, thanks for your input. This idea was already brought up by someone's comment at Curse and v1.0, to be released on Monday probably, will change smart mounting to behave in this fashion.

My original idea was to have people use the "random land mount" function until they got "smart mounting", and even then use smart mounting judiciously. After all, if you have an epic land mount and only a slow flying mount, you probably want to be on your land mount to actually travel and your flying mount when you need to rise vertically. Smart mounting would put you on the slower flying mount all the time.
