Gatherer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.4.1
by: Esamynn, dinesh, MentalPower, Nechckn, Norganna
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 you minimap.

When you view your World Map, you will also see the item locations marked on the particular map you are viewing there.

For more information, please visit us at http://www.gathereraddon.com/


INSTALLATION:
--------------
Extract the data to your "World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns" directory so that the "Gatherer" directory is a subdirectory of the "AddOns" directory.


USAGE:
--------------
Just use the game as normal.
When you gather things, they will appear on your minimap and your main map.
If you want to configure the addon, click the Gatherer configuration icon floating around your minimap frame or type /gather options.

Slash Commands
/gather minimap (on|off|toggle) - controls the minimap tracking functionality
/gather mainmap (on|off|toggle) - controls the world map tracking functionality
/gather dist <n> - sets the minimap tracking distance to this number of units. (in game yards)
/gather num <n> - sets the maximum number of items to display (default=20, up to 50)
/gather herbs (on|off|toggle) - select whether to show herb data on the minimap")
/gather ore (on|off|toggle) - select whether to show mining data on the minimap")
/gather treasure (on|off|toggle) - select whether to show treasure data on the minimap")
/gather options - show the configuration dialog

Eastern Plaguelands

It appears that the Eastern Plaguelands has been expanded. This is causing all recorded gathers in the Eastern Plaguelands to have incorrect locations when displayed on the zone map or minimap.

My playtime has been limited, especially on the PTR which are kind of an overpopulated mess. However, it's possible that other zones have changed and are similarly effected.

I imagine it would be possible to implement some sort of import conversion which could correct these saved gather locations.


edit: Gather locations in Stormwind City are also affected.

Re: Conflict with OptionHouse

Hi there, SoulBurner,

We have taken a look through the frame handling and such and cannot find where or why Gatherer would have any affect on the calls you reference. None of us run Option House itself, but those are pretty standard.

Looks like you will have to talk to Shadowed and see if they have some insight as to why Option House would behave in such a way.

If they come up with anything pointing toward Gatherer, we will be happy to work with them to allow both to work at once.

Let us know,

Nikk

I'm saying about "search" input box in the OptionHouse config dialog. There is code like this:

frame.search:SetHeight(19)
frame.search:SetWidth(150)
frame.search:SetAutoFocus(false)
frame.search:ClearAllPoints()
frame.search:SetPoint("CENTER", frame, "BOTTOMLEFT", 100, 25)

and it works ok when Gatherer is off. But when it is on, the SetWidth() and SetPoint() begin to work incorrectly - they change only the position of the input field, but the grey frame that has to be around it doesn't change its width and pos and is positioned in the middle of the dialog box, not at its place.

Re: Broken?

Hello Chiaroscurist,

The error you note was fixed about 2 versions back- there was an issue with a library that Gatherer uses when you loot items due to a change by Blizz that was unannounced. Again, that was addressed in Gatherer but some other Addons that borrowed our library, "libswag", did not fix their versions. Unfortunately, the way things work is that once a library is loaded, then all Addons needing that library use the instance that is running- so, you could well have another Addon that is causing the issue. The only way to know for sure is to run Gatherer alone, then re-add your other Addons to determine the culprit.

As for the other issue, your entire database is contained in the Gatherer.lua file over in the WTF folder. If you delete that, then you deleted your database of nodes that you have gathered to date.

Now, we do offer a partial node database to get folks started, and that can be found on the main Gatherer download page - http://GathererAddOn.Com/dl simply go there, grab the most recent version of Gatherer and the WoWHeadDB addon. Install both of them, and follow the instructions for importing contained on http://wiki.norganna.org/GathererDB.

Since you have had issues, recommend deleting any Gatherer folders you have in the Addons folder before re-installing, then we can be sure that you are starting fresh.

Happy Reinstalling,

Nikk

But now it's completely stopped working. It shows in my addon manager as loaded but I cannot get the minimap button or slash commands or anything to work. So, I deleted it from my addon folder and deleted the saved vairables for both the global and character specific folder, then reinstalled it.
Still... nothing. Any ideas? Thanks.

Akussa,


The fact that you deleted your WTF folders is why you are missing nodes since that is where WoW stores addons' data.


The database from our site only augments your data- if there is an issue with the current data set pulled from WoWHead, et al, then try one of the older databases located on the http://GathererAddOn.Com/dl page- there are quite a few available, going back for some time. The full list- http://gathereraddon.com/dl/GathererDB/?all=1*


Gatherer's main function is to record the location of nodes that you visit, making it easier for you to find your way back the next time. We only provide the database as an enhancement and do not state anywhere that every node in the game is included since we must rely on the methods outlined in my previous post.


Our best advice is: go out and gather those nodes, then you will have them in your database. Be sure to back up your WTF directory so that you do not encounter the issue again.


We appreciate the input and will happily include other data, from verifiable sources, when those sources become available.


Happy Gatherering,


Nikk

I tried doing as you said and the issue has still not been resolved. I went so far as to do a completely fresh install of my entire UI, deleting my Interface and WTF folders from the WoW directory and starting fresh. The newest version of the database, which I have always downloaded from the website you mentioned, is where the problem is that I can see. It is missing roughly 2000 nodes from something as simple as peacebloom all the way up to as dramatic is adamantite.

Nothing was unchecked and/or excluded from settings within /gatherer itself and as such I do not believe this to be the issue. Reverting to the Database version released in April fixes all of the Outland issues but creates problems with copper, silver and gold no longer showing. Personally I prefer having the outland nodes but as I plan on leveling Engineering soon you can see where my problem lies.

Simply "downloading the latest gathererDB" version as you stated is where the problem with outland nodes started and was what was mentioned in my previous post. I am not trying to insult, complain, etc but rather to bring an issue to your attention. If I have to I can take screen shots of Outland maps With the April version of the Database and and May versions of the Database to show you what I am talking about and why it is such a dramatic difference.

Edit: Upon viewing maps of Adamantite from wowhead.com I can see that their data is very incomplete. 6 total Adamantite locations in Blade's Edge and not a single one in Netherstorm? Perhaps there is something wrong with their data collection addon but where has all the old data vanished to?
*Edit: Added link to full DB list.

We obtain our data via input from WoWHead, WoWDB, and elsewhere.

Blizzard will not release the official spawn locales, so we use the resources available to us, in our case a network of database "fan sites". Until those sites obtain additional or different data, there is not much we can do.

In your case, simply downloading the latest GatherDB should be more than enough since the copper, tin, silver, and other "lower-end" nodes are surely contained in the database.

Visit GathererAddOn.Com/dl to obtain the latest database and follow the instructions on the wiki, via the link next to the database.

Would recommend that you also ensure that you are not mistakenly filtering any items in the Gatherer options- we have heard of a few nodes here and there that are missing but no where near 2000.

**Note that the default installation of Gatherer is actually "empty" and only records the nodes you manually collect. The only way to obtain any sort of "filled" version is via the link above.

Happy Gatherering,

I tried doing as you said and the issue has still not been resolved. I went so far as to do a completely fresh install of my entire UI, deleting my Interface and WTF folders from the WoW directory and starting fresh. The newest version of the database, which I have always downloaded from the website you mentioned, is where the problem is that I can see. It is missing roughly 2000 nodes from something as simple as peacebloom all the way up to as dramatic is adamantite.

Nothing was unchecked and/or excluded from settings within /gatherer itself and as such I do not believe this to be the issue.

To fix this problem I had to restore an older version of the WTF files but this leaves me with no Copper and Silver nodes in Azeroth >_<

Edit: On further investigation it's not all adamantite ore that's missing. From what I can tell there's about 2000 nodes missing between mining, herblism and treasure lootables. While this isn't a lot the one mining node I did specifically notice has being hit hardest was adamantite, with fel iron missing quite a bit as well. I point you to the Netherstorm and Blade's Edge Mountains maps where it's most noticeable. Adamantite is all but non-existent in BE.

3.1.2

Gatherers,

Appreciate your patience, the new version of Gatherer takes into account Blizz's last minute global variable changes and more.

Hope you all enjoy it,

Normally we can wait for it, but i cannot miss Gatherer.
And it seems the small changes for copper, silver and gold in one file is enough to work with Gatherer without new errors.

You may see it as small hot-fix until the new version comes.

Gatherers,


We appreciate your patience and want to let you know that our in-house Gatherer guru has what we think is a fix about ready.


Look for a new version this weekend, as long as things go as planned.

Until then, we recommend that you disable Gatherer or live with the pop-up each time you loot something that gives actual money...


You could set Swatter to hide new errors, use /swat to see the list of commands. **Just be sure to turn it back on once you have updated to the new Gatherer. ;-)


We will have the new version released as soon as possible,


Nikk and the rest of the folks from the Norganna Family of AddOns

If you feel confident enough to modify the files yourself, you can fix this bug by editing Gatherer\Swag\LibSwag.lua. The lines you need to modify are 212, 214 and 216. The part you are modifying is the word "COPPER" to "COPPER_AMOUNT" (for line 212). The other changes on 214 and 216 are similar (SILVER to SILVER_AMOUNT and GOLD to GOLD_AMOUNT).

I have not encountered any other Gatherer bugs after making this change, but I do not use all the Gatherer features either. If you are not confident you can read my instructions and make the necessary fixes, please wait for the official update.

Gatherers,

We are aware of the various "libswag" issues introduced by Blizzard changing a Global Variable at the last moment and will be posting a patched version as soon as we can verify and test the changes.

In general, we do not recommend that folks go making hand changes, but you are free to do so if you are willing to take the risk.

Thank you,

Nikk and the rest of the team at the Norganna Family of AddOns

Yes, the value COPPER SILVER and GOLD are changed to COPPER_AMOUNT SILVER_AMOUNT and GOLD_AMOUNT

A bit longer name, but that is the problem. I fix my Gatherer mod soon with new values (just search-and-change method) and that should do it.

Or Gatherer fix it quickly. But that goes for ALL mods who use money tracking.
