MountRandomMount  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0a
by: dardack, Tomate

I wanted a simple mod to randomly cast a mount from a list I defined. Using Land in nonflyable areas and flying in flyable areas.

Have added localization ability, tenatively/hopefully. If you would like to localize this, please look at localization.enUS.lua and send me a comment stating you would like to.

Have added the ability for druids/shamans to use their travel/GW/flight forms. It's bound to a 3rd key binding. Can not be part of the randomness due to the fact it is a spell and must have a secure button to cast. Well it could be just not simplified. For druids, will attempt to cast swift flight than flight form in flyable area's, if you have neither it than will attempt to cast travel form. If your not in a flyable area it will attempt to cast travel form. Ok to be able to cast, the binding is transfered from the trigger you set in Key Bindings menu, to the secure button for casting. So each time you log in you will have to hit this key binding twice, but for the rest of the session will act like a regular keybinding. I have found no way around this at this time. This only affects travel forms keybinding.

Comments Suggestions always are welcomed.

use /rdm:
RountRandomMount version
use: /rdm --prints this help
/rdm add [mount name] (can also shift click from your mount list) -- adds another mount to the random list
/rdm remove [mount name] (can also shift click from your mount list) --removes a mount from the list
/rdm list -- lists the mounts to select from
/rdm gui -- brings up a GUI of your mounts
/rdm reseed -- if you use more than one computer and you learn a new mount, your list will not work on the other computer, use this to reseed correct mount ID's
/rdm catform -- if you are a druid will use catform in instances/inside.
/rdm random -- mounts a random mount from your list (using flying in flyable areas and land in nonflyable areas)
There is a keybinding option in the Blizzard KeyBindings Menu. Add a shortcut here to call /rdm random

If you have any bugs, questions, comments, suggestions, please leave me a comment.

I did run into a mount that doesn't have the same name in the tooltip as in the WoW API call. Bronze Drake from CoS timed, doesn't have the word mount in the tooltip, but in the API call comes back Bronze Drake Mount. If you get an error saying mount doesn't exist, please let me know. Also if you ahve the HHM, will you let me know if it works with this?

Changed how mounts are determined for flying/land as the coming changes in Cata. It now keeps a global list of all mounts and what they can do (land/flying/both/swimming).

X-53 should work across all clients, as X-53 is not a word.

Added German Translation for specific keywords, thanks to: Brenainn

Added Sea Turtle cast if swimming to random mount, otherwise a land mount is cast. Added Acquatic form if swimming and druid.

Updated ToC to 3.3

IsFlyableArea Does not work during Combat in WG, added code to correct this.

IsFlyableArea() was fixed in 3.2 and properly determines if you can mount. Simiplfied code this way.

Minor fixes to color code.

Fixed issue with next button on GUI not re-enabling when prev button was pushed, until page 1 was reached.

v 2.6
Began chinese translations.

v 2.5
Updated so no error message (found the API call to find out if WG is in combat and was able to see that land only during combat, flying every other time, even if other faction owns WG, sorry took me a bit to have time to test). Updated Druid travel forms for WG hopefully, need someone to test.

v 2.4
Updated for flying mounts in WG, what it does is try to mount a Flying mount then a land (in case of battle). So you will get a message another action is in progress, or you can't use that here and a land mount is summoned. Unfortunately, this is due to the fact that CallCompanion doesn't return anything (ie success or fail). Also, i did this cause I wasn't sure if you can mount you flying during WG battles. Been busy, haven't been able to test.

v 2.3
Updated TOC for 3.2

v 2.1a
Fixed code for the druid forms again.

v 2.1
Hopefully fixed the profession only mounts and headless horseman mount.

v 2.0d
Hopefully re-fixed the druid forms.

v 2.0c
Was pointed out to me, that I shouldn't use global variables, but use a table. This has been fixed. However, your mount list will now be blank.

v 2.0b
Hopefully fixed the druid forms.

v 2.0a
Hopefully fixed the cat form inside toggle command. Also added a check if the player is a druid, so it will just tell you to ignore that command if you are a druid.
Hopefully fixed the not using flight form in flyable areas.

v 2.0
Added localization, enUS only right now. If you want to contribute another language, please look at the localization.enUS.lua file and there are all the variables used within MRM. Send me a comment that you would like to do this.
Added shaman/druid ability to use GW/travel/flight forms. It uses a 3rd binding for this, since they are considered spells and not mounts, a secure button must be used. So they can't be part of your random list. The 3rd key binding will show up for non druid/shamans but if you set a keybinding to it will display a message you aren't of the right class.

v 1.2
Fixed the problem with not mounting up a land mount if you had no flying selected.
Added a binding to mount a random land mount only (for those times you want to show off your land mounts in flyable areas)
Added a command to reseed mount ID's. If you play on 2 computers and you learn a new mount on 1, your list on the other won't work correctly until the ID's are corrected. This will do that.

v 1.1a
Was not correctly updating your list when a new mount was added. Fixed.
Will have to clear your list or add a new mount.

v 1.0
1.0 release
GUI added
fixed an error where no printing of what mount was added when your flying or land list is empty.
Added keybing

v beta .5a
Changed it so that a flying mount would be used in Krasus' Landing in Dalaran.

I will not do a version for WoD beta. The functionality you are referring to is different to what's MRM do and this functionality should be done in another addon. I will maybe do a profile addon for mounts but currently I haven't time to.

The built in functionality works for me. I will probably be abandoning this myself.

For the moment I will also not release any version I suggest you use a macro like this one:
#showtooltip Somemount
/use [modifier:shift] Somemount
/use [modifier:alt] Somemount
/script C_MountJournal.Summon(0)

The main problem is keeping the mount DB updated. And with all flying now ground, but not all ground flying, the whole DB needs a overhaul. And since the built in functionality works exactly how i want it, I don't see a reason to spend my time doing that. Sorry. I wish you luck in finding another option that fits your needs.
