GathererDB WoWHead  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.2013-06-15
by: Esamynn, dinesh, MentalPower, Nechckn, Norganna, norganna_uploader

WoWInterface is happy to announce that we have teamed up with Wowhead and the Norganna's AddOns Gatherer team to provide you with an exclusive downloadable Wowhead database for display in-game by Gatherer.

This addon will provide you with all the information currently in the Wowhead database showing all known locations of herbs, minerals and treasures. Now you can simply load up Gatherer, plug this database into it, and know what can be found in the zone you are in, without having to discover them yourself.

Wowhead will be providing regular dumps of their database to the Norganna team, who will then update the GathererDB Wowhead addon exclusively here on WoWInterface.


How it works
The import procedure is simple and painless. Once you have installed the AddOn and have reloaded the game, ensuring that both Gatherer and GathererDB_Wowhead are activated. When you finally log into the game, follow this procedure to import the new data into Gatherer:
  • Open Gatherer's configuration dialog.
  • Click on the red "Database" tab on the left-hand side of the dialog.
  • Click the import button in the main panel.

Make sure to add GathererDB-Wowhead to your favourites list here on WoWInterface and check back periodically to see if it's been updated, or get an email sent to you whenever they update it if you have those notifications turned on. Any time they update it, just re-download GathererDB-Wowhead and update your local copy.


Help improve the database
If you want to contribute your data back to Wowhead to continue expanding the database, please download and install the Wowhead client (available for both PC and Mac) and just follow the instructions on their site.


About Gatherer
Gatherer is an addon for herbalists, miners and treasure hunters in World of Warcraft. It's main purpose is to track the closest plants, deposits and treasure locations on your minimap.

The addon does not track like a tracking ability does, rather it "remembers" where you have found various items in the past. It does this whenever you gather (perform herbalism, mining, or opening) on an item, and records the specific map location in its history. From then on, whenever the item comes into range of being one of the closest 1-25 (configurable) items to your present location, it will pop up on the minimap.

When you view your World Map, you will also see the item locations clearly marked on each zone's map.


About Wowhead
Wowhead was created with one sole intent: to provide World of Warcraft players with an extensive database and tools to enhance their gaming experience. This website is our contribution to this wonderful game.

Our user community is a big part, if not the biggest part, of Wowhead. Almost all of our information comes from our users, through data uploads from the Wowhead Client, comments on database entries and screenshot submissions! The site also features forums, where users can ask questions, discuss important Warcraft-related topics, recommend and share favorite addons, and much more!

We do intend to keep releasing updates as there is new data and when we have the time, so it should not be all too long before things are back to "normal" with a relatively full load of goodies. Until then, folks will have to get out and dig around the old fashioned way.

Not sure why folks are having load issues, though - just to be sure, you do have some nodes listed with GathererDB as the source, after running the import, right?

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk




**Nechckn Edit: Expounded upon the process in the first paragraph.
After running the import db in gatherer I have zero nodes that loaded, it seems that it just stops at 90.4% and cancels the process completely. The only nodes I have are the ones that I farmed or my guild sends.

As I'm unfamiliar with the data request from Wowhead, is it possible to get all the currently posted data into a DB release already? Just as an example, the Elementium Vein has been mined over 236948 times, so I would think there should be sufficient data for the database. (I have been using the Wowhead Updater from the computer I've been doing most of my farming from, however)

Appreicate your going through and noting them for didah, would only add that they are also included in our request for data to/from Wowhead. Now, it is a matter of the DB filling out from the front end, aka folks running the Wowhead Updater, and then it being included.

Areas without information are not noted in the GathererDB_Wowhead file.

Side Note: The only item missing from Gatherer, itself, is the Sturdy Chest, but those are going into the next release, which should be out relatively soon.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

The latest build of Gatherer is fine. All the node information is in GathererCategories.lua.

Code:

    [202738] = "ORE_ELEMENTIUM", -- Elementium Vein
    [202739] = "ORE_ROBSIDIUM", -- Rich Obsidium Deposit
    [202740] = "ORE_RPYRITE", -- Rich Pyrite Deposit
    [202741] = "ORE_RELEMENTIUM", -- Rich Elementium Vein
Code:
    [202747] = "HERB_CINDERBLOOM", -- Cinderbloom
    [202748] = "HERB_STORMVINE", -- Stormvine
    [202749] = "HERB_AZSHARASVEIL", -- Azshara's Veil
    [202750] = "HERB_HEARTBLOSSOM", -- Heartblossom
    [202751] = "HERB_TWILIGHTJASMINE", -- Twilight Jasmine
    [202752] = "HERB_WHIPTAIL", -- Whiptail
Likewise, GathererZoneTokens.lua contains the new zones.

So it's just a lack of new data/zones with the latest GathererDB that was posted yesterday.

Also stopped at 90.4% for me.

Looked at the .lua files; I cannot find any of the new zones or node names in there.

If this update was supposed to include Vashj'ir, Hyjal, Uldum, Deepholm, Twilight Highlands, and the new minerals/herbs... then they are not in it.

Re: Re: Re: lots of

Just tried with no other addons active. same result. fails at 90.4%

LadyKayla,

Do you mean that the progress bar hangs at 90% or that it completes? It should be fairly quick and that may be the last point noted before completion. If the bar appears, fills, and then disappears, that usually means the process completed. If the bar sits on the screen at 90%, then there is likely some file corruption, locally.

One thing to try , the "tired" bug is affecting me, too, apparently... Since some other AddOn may be interfering - go to the main WoW AddOns Cotrol Panel and only activate, with the gold checkmark, Gatherer, GathererDB_Wowhead, GathererHUD, SlideBar, and Swatter - and then try the import. If someone ever finds which one does cause issues, kindly let us know. This has been a thorn for a couple years now. TY!

As for the nodes, would suppose that your cache simply has not filled, yet. If you do an AH search for Herbs and mouse-over them, spurring an update, do you then see everything, as expected? If not, perhaps there is file corruption in your Gatherer.lua and you will need to either replace from a backup or start anew - but try the refreshing and such first.

Keep in mind, as noted in the release note below, that there is very little data for the "Old/New World" Zones - folks need to run the Wowhead updater so that the location database can be filled out. The client is is available for MS Windows and OSX via http://www.wowhead.com/?client *There needs to be a certain number of submissions for each node location, from different users, on different servers, et cetera - that process is in place to help ensure that erroneous data is not displayed, whether the source was corrupt or intentionally altered by folks with ill intent. So get your friends to run it, as well.

Unfortunately, there is no authoritative source for reliable location information, at present, but we will be releasing updates a bit more frequently, as new data is available and as we have the time. To ease the whole process, mark GathererDB_Wowhead as a "Favorite" and the good folks here at WoWInterface will alert you when a new version is ready for installation and importation. You can also run either the MMOUI_Minion or the Curse Client to automatically grab updates, as they are available -whichever you prefer.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

Re: Re: Re: lots of

I'm having same issue. at 90.4 percent the import stops. It looks as if it may have completed, but the new database isn't there. One time I tried the import, after it hung it 90.4 a message that said something like "database version unknown, resetting database" appeared the chat window. I've only actually seen that error one of the many times I've tried the import.

Korby,

For Archaeology, that is surely a well thought out AddOn, with a decent history of work and updates. Hopefully they continue.

We do intend to add such functionality to Gatherer, but it likely will just be the points- while that provides a bit more, so a nice find. Thank you for sharing.

Happy Gatherering,

Nikk

Birdeye,

See the reply to LadyKayla, which spells out the reasons for the sparse data and what you can do to change that.

Happy Gatherering,
