Oct 3, 2016Posted in: Map/Minimap AddOnsJust install GatherMate2_Data, and use the Import functionality in-game. It contains all data submitted until last week, and a new version with all the new data since then will be available soon, probably tomorrow.

This cleaning is what took most of the effort to get right, just blindly combining the databases was done in a couple minutes. :)for cleaning it is not enough to just use the maintenance fonction inside gathermate2 ? You you can set the radius to like 5-10 yards and clean the nodes that collapse.And question, at what inverval to you want our lua file ? Every week is good or ?I could use the function in GM2, but I wanted something automatic without running the game.Anyway you don't need to keep posting your file unless you feel like you found a bunch of nodes that were not tracked before. At some point we'll just have most of them.

So, i've successfully merged all the files in this topic. Final file contains around 3.5k nodes for different professions (There are no duplicates, they are all unique).The GatherMate2_Data project on WoWAce also contains all the data (up to the post I made when I made the release) since the new release was made yesterday.Additionally, since the position is taken from where you stand when you gather the plant, it can be slightly inaccurate - leading to having multiple positions for the same plant which overlap with only minimal differences. These "duplicates but not quite" nodes are purged from the official release because they serve no purpose other then using extra space and memory.This cleaning is what took most of the effort to get right, just blindly combining the databases was done in a couple minutes. :)

Everything contributed until now has been imported, cleaned and de-duplicated. A new release of GatherMate2_Data should be available soon.
To avoid excess node spam, nodes very close to each other may have been cleaned up, but that should be within a few in-game yards, so nothing is really lost. GatherMate2 would never have collected nodes that close to each other, anyway, not with default cleanup settings.
So in short, the database is what you would get after manually combining all data listed here and using the GM2 Cleanup function in the Maintenance section.

I still need to finish the scripts to merge all these data files into one, once thats done I'll try to update it regularly when new data comes in.
The first update should be within a week.
Thanks for everyone providing data!

since WoWHead and WoWDB do not track spawns of Legion herbs (yet, or ever, it seems unclear), some people have asked if they can contribute their own gathered data for inclusion in GatherMate2_Data.
After briefly looking into how I could pull this off, I concluded there is really no reason not to do that.
So I'll be building some scripts to combine the user-provided data and package it into GatherMate2_Data.
What do I need to do that? Well! Data, of course. I have plenty Legion Herb data myself, but no mining and barely any fishing.
So if you want to contribute, upload your data somewhere and link it here, and I'll integrate it within the next week or so.
Upload your "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<name>\SavedVariables\GatherMate2.lua" to any file sharing service of your choice (simple things like OneDrive, Google Drive, DropBox preferred, mega also ok), and post a link to that here. I'll quickly check them and then run them through my script to include the nodes in the central database.
Aug 17, 2016The only way to get multi-folder addons to package the way you want is using the move-folders pkgmeta option which moves sub-folders to the root after packaging.Posted in: AddOn HELP!
Here is an example with a similar setup:
If you would package your addon without move-folders, all would be inside a "GnomeSequencer-Enhanced" folder and nothing would get loaded.
There is several approaches to setting up move-folders, either how KuiNameplates does it by moving everything, or having the "core" in the top level folder and only moving the "plugin" to the root, which is what some other addons do.

The load time argument is mostly bogus, it doesn't have a significant influence as none of the code of the duplicate libraries is executed - assuming those libraries are written properly to bail out early

Aug 9, 2016You need to return color values in the range of 0-1, just like the set function will also give you back. So just divide by 255 first.Posted in: Ace3
In general, everything in WoW deals with 0-1 color values, 0-255 is usually just used to make it easier for the user to understand (or when using hex color strings, as the only exception).

Not sure the game tells you how many are left.
Aug 8, 2016All Git tag issues i'm aware of usually come from converting SVN to Git and pushing old tags to the repository. I've never seen any project that originally started out as Git screwing that up, unless you suddenly push a long list of tags in one go, I suppose.Posted in: General Chat
