Candy Buckets  Updated less than 3 days ago!
Version: 6.0.0.141023
by: Vladinator [More]
Official repository can be found at GitHub.

The addon was reworked for WoD so please bear with me if there are issues, and feel free to post any errors for me to fix. Thanks!

Candy Buckets makes it easier to track several world event objectives:
- Hallow's End
- Lunar Festival
- Midsummer Fire Festival

Features implemented:
- Simple overview on zone and continent views.
- Works with the default map, probably not with addons like Carbonite.

Any suggestions? Drop a comment and let me know!
6.0.0.141023:
- Added zone to tooltips.

6.0.0.141022:
- Improved completed quest caching system.
- Map won't update unless shown.
- Tooltips improved for all events. Added phasing tips for Hallow's End.

- Fixed minor issues.

6.0.0.141020:
- Fixed many issues with the addon.

Re: Not parsing faction in outland

It will show both quests and label them by faction in the latest version.

You need to visit the faction appropriate for you. If no faction is picked you can't visit any of those.

I'd say I'd go back and try it with today's update, but that's my last toon to get the holiday. :/

Thanks, it does make things easier!

Can't get addon to work :(

I love this addon, but it's not working for me today. I tried loading the newest version, but there are still no little icons in my world map

Re: Options for Flight Plans

Not a bad suggestion. If it will be in for this year, not so sure.

Options for Flight Plans

With this being similar to archaeology (With regard to points changing after being used) have you considered using the same type of system as Homing Digeon, so that it's easy to spot the best flight plan to use?

I have looked at Mapster and noticed that it does need some fixing, for instance blobs and pois may disappear upon clicking in combat, hehe.

In any case my version works fine, SatMap caused some issues I fixed too (with overlays) so I'll upload the fix soon.

This addon and Mapster Enhanced don't play together 100% well.

No LUA errors.
When M.E. is enabled the bucket location icons don't show reliably.
I have to toggle the map on and off to get them to show.
They show and disappear randomly as the map is toggled on and off.
If a zone has more than one bucket they may or may not all show at the same time.

If I disable M.E. the bucket location icons always show up.

Not sure if there is anything you can do about this.
Just thought I would let you know about it.

Hehe, you can do like me, add the room on Pidgin and just let it be in the background, if someone says your name it will notify you with a sound and flash, other than that it's up to you if you speak, read or not.

Phanx, shame you aren't on IRC, hehe. Great work with the Horde nodes tough!

I removed 12379 and 12385 (Thousand Needles and Kargath)

About 29016, it's a bit complicated I think, thing is that Uldum actually has two maps, when a phase occurs that changes the map, they use another areaID (/dump GetCurrentMapAreaID()) so the only reason I duplicate that node is so it also shows on those that are in that specific phase. It's weird because this phase only shows in the data files, meaning I am not sure at what point it is even utilized, or if it's leftover phase that is never used, lol. I will remove it, just trying to dig out more information atm.

I corrected the coordinates on 12384 in Stonard.

About 12409, Outland has two places for Aldor and Scryer, both share the same questID but have different locations. I fix this by simply borrowing the phased table to add a copy of the same quest on the same map, hehe. It's just so they both visually appear, but as soon you loot one the other place disappears as well.

Regarding TomTom, I just feed it areaID, level and coordinates, the rest is handled by its own code, as long I make the nodes appear properly, only those will be fed, but notice that they won't be automatically removed, meaning it will either require the player to remove manually (when the node disappears, like in Aldor/Scryer case, or visit the place and let TomTom remove it), sadly that's how it is atm.

*Edit*

I just did a cache update and got fresh Wowhead data, then I logged on my Hordie and noticed that the Dalaran map showed me the correct bucket location, both Neutral (upper and lower level) and the Horde location one. The Alliance one was not visible, as it should be. I think it confused you because TomTom points you to the lower level, I know, it's right below the Alliance one basically, hehe. :P

My map lib probably has a lot of issues, I mainly made it for the default map frame, so I probably gotta tune it a bit to make it work properly with Mapster. It's a bit odd as my addon only overlays and never alters scales or positions tough, hmm. It uses its own layer for the icons. Keep me updated, and thanks Phanx!

More updates for the Horde:

Kalimdor

There are no longer any Horde candy buckets in Thousand Needles, since Freewind Post got destroyed and then taken over by the Grimtotems in the Cataclysm, so this can be removed from the Kalimdor section:
[12379] = {side = 2, area = 61, level = 0, x = 46.10, y = 51.40},
The candy bucket at the Oasis of Vir'sar in Uldum is correctly listed in the Phased table, but incorrectly duplicated (with the wrong mapID) in the Kalimdor table causing it to be displayed near the edge of the Uldum map in the middle of some inter-zone mountains. This entry can be removed:
[29016] = {side = 3, area = 720, level = 0, x = 26.60, y = 7.30},
(Actually, I'm not sure how the area IDs work for phased zones, but the mapID for Uldum is 720, not 748 as is listed in the entry in the Phased table. I do notice that the TomTom waypoint points to the correct location at the Oasis, but there isn't a candy icon shown there despite there being a candy bucket there I had not yet visited. If it matters, my character has completed every quest in Uldum, so the Oasis is in phase for me.)

Eastern Kingdoms

The coordinates for the candy bucket in Stonard are incorrect. It appears Wowhead has two points for this bucket; one is probably left over from before the Cataclysm. Here are the correct coordinates:
[12384] = {side = 2, area = 38, level = 0, x = 46.90, y = 56.70},
Kargath was destroyed in the Cataclysm, so it no longer exists to host a candy bucket. This can be removed:
[12385] = {side = 2, area = 17, level = 0, x = 3.00, y = 46.10},
Outland

The neutral candy bucket in Shadowmoon Valley at Sanctum of the Stars (qID 12409) is incorrectly marked as being located at the Altar of Sha'tar, which is the location of an Alliance candy bucket. Here is the correct location for 12409:
[12409] = {side = 3, area = 473, level = 0, x = 56.30, y = 59.80},
(While checking the data in db.lua, I noticed that the Alliance bucket at the Altar of Sha'tar is not listed. I did see the bucket at 60.9, 28.2 but according to Wowhead, the achievement for Alliance characters only requires either the Altar of Sha'tar bucket or the neutral Sanctum of the Stars bucket, not both. As I don't have an Alliance character of remotely high enough level to go running around Outland, I can't check that both buckets are actually available to Alliance characters. You may want to check on this, and add the Alter of Sha'tar bucket if they are both accessible, even if it's not required for the achievement.)

The Shattrath City candy buckets are problematic. Both the Aldor bucket and Scryers bucket share the same quest ID (12404) but are in different locations. The current data gives the location of the Aldor bucket. The Scryers bucket is at 56.20, 81.70. I'm not sure what a good solution to this is; adding extra code to scan the player's factions (looking for hardcoded faction names) is probably not a good solution.

Northrend

I'm not sure that this is a data problem, but I got a TomTom waypoint for the Alliance candy bucket in Dalaran, and no waypoint for the Horde bucket. However, I did get a candy icon for the Horde bucket and not the Alliance one. Even after completing the Horde bucket in Dalaran, reloading the UI, and doing "set all waypoints" again, I still get a waypoint for the location of the Alliance bucket at 37.9, 60.6 and no candy icon on the map anywhere nearby.

Edit: Nevermind on the above. It was actually giving me a waypoint for the bucket in the Underbelly, but no candy icon on the top-level Dalaran map. Apparently TomTom and your map lib disagree on where the icons should show up.

Finally...

Your map lib seems to have issues with the "minimized" worldmap. It doesn't always happen, but a couple of times I noticed that when I "minimized" the worldmap, all my GatherMate2 icons properly moved and scaled down to appear as expected, but the CandyBuckets icons that were showing at the time did not. I definitely saw this consistently in Uldum. If it happens again I'll report back with more specific info. I am using Mapster.
