Adorable Hatchling Nests

Version: v3.03
by: Taraezor [More]

Description
Places a pin on the World Map and Minimap for every Razormaw / Ravasaur / Leaping / Darting Hatchling nest's spawn location.

Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português Brasileiro, Русский, 한국어, 繁體中文, 简体中文

How to Use
Instal: Like any other AddOn. Set up: Works 'as is'. For options enter /ahn, /arn, /rapt, /raptor, or /ador in chat.

Details
Players are able to collect several raptor style companions/pets. Four of these spawn from within nests. You do not need to kill anything.

The Ravasaur Hatchling spawns within Ravasaur Matriarch nests. There are five possible locations in Un'Goro Crater. The respawn timer is several hours.

The Razormaw Hatchling spawns within the Razormaw Matriarch's nest. The nest spawns hourly and is located on the central platform within a Wetlands cave.

The Darting Hatchling spawns from one of Dart's nests, of which there are four possible locations. These spawn every couple of hours.

The Leaping Hatchling spawns from Takk's nests every hour. The four possible locations are at the base of a hill in the Northern Barrens.

Features
😃 Resize the World Map / Minimap pin icons
😃 Choice of 13 pin icons
😃 If the nest is out of range of the Minimap, the icon will hover at the border to indicate direction
😃 Map Tooltips
😃 Chat links
😃 Fun raptor SFX whenever you open or click on a map with raptor nests
😃 Choice of baby (default) or adult random raptor sounds. Aw, they sound so cute!
😃 No Ace libraries = no bloat
😃 Ultra small cpu/memory footprint

Bonus Features
Pay close attention to the Raptor Eye icon 😉

Chat Links
You may now link your finds to friends and guild members. Click in the Edit Frame of your chat channel, be it Whisper, General, Guild, whatever. From the Mini-Map or World Map hold the mouse over the egg location with the Control Key held down. Done! Format will be [Darting Hatchling Link] @ (x,y).

If You Like Adorable Hatchling Nests
Nobody can resist an adorable Raptor Hatchling pet or the magnificent Netherwing Drake and Long-Forgotten Hippogryph mounts. You'll of course need Dark Soil for The Tillers friendships and a Loose Pebble for your Dog! While fishing you'll wonder if This Scampi Happening? Oh, but it is! Why not Let Minnow about your fishing poles and you surely Cod Do Batter with your fishing achievements. While adventuring, map your way with X and Y coordinates and always go the Hard Yards measuring distance. Have some fun with Yarrr for pirate Tooltips or turn geek with Fibonacci. See all the hidden game asset IDs with Tip or Enumerate your frames. Achievement critters and NPCs receive some Rare Love and keep track of Sunrise & Sunset.

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend". 😊

* Tooltip for Takk and Dart swapped around. Doh!

== v3.01 - 19th June 2017
* Removed extra firstTimeIn declaration
* World Map's Tooltip now ANCHOR_CURSOR, as per my other AddOns
* Zeroed alpha immediately Minimap frames are allocated = no more "flashing" or "stuck" icons on login

== v3.00 - 9th May 2017
* Adult Raptor icon (if chosen) now blinks in the Minimap. Same as Netherwing Eggs
* localised SetMapToCurrentZone

* Choice of icons expanded from 8 to 13
* "Macro Commands" in the command menu, whilst technically correct, has been renamed to the more sensible "Commands"
* Standardised with other of my AddOns: When Control key is down, NO NEED for "show coordinates" option to be on. I.e. link in chat (with coordinates) regardless

* The Great Sea is a (quirky!) sub-zone WITHIN the Wetlands. Code around this to prevent unusual placement of mini-map icon

* Possibly improve impact of this AddOn on higher FPS players who also have lots of Minimap stress

Many thanks. I am always looking for ideas. As well as your suggestion there are the eggs located in the Jade Forest area in Pandaria. Again another AHN / NE AddOn.

Edit: Just now checked your suggestion. I did NOT know about this mount. OMG! Right now have begun coding. Many thanks! (PS: I still prefer the white Silver Covenant one hehehe)

v2.07 - Big Changes / Fixes

High time I extend a little love to our cute little raptor friends.

The change log is extensive for such a small AddOn and yet I pretty much have solved any issues I am aware of and which have accumulated over time.

The Northern Barrens bug, due to some weird change at the server side at some unknown time in the recent past, caused the raptor sounds to spam ceaselessly.

And I discovered that an MP3 made on my OSX machine here was actually nothing more than a wrapped AAC file and thus unplayable from WoW. ITunes and several other free conversion programs persisted in resisting a "real" conversion to MP3 so I just ditched them and went looking for a different Public Domain sound file. Easy done. Sigh.

Enjoy!

Oh yeah... Happy New Year for 2017! Woooooot!

Godzilla?

Apparently on 1st April the Hatchlings are a little more aggressive. They certainly sound it hehehe.

Edit: No complaints (sigh) after the Apocalypse which was April 1st. You can be assured that the cute little Hatchlings have returned to their normal placid selves. Godzilla has returned to the sea.

v2.00 / v2.01 / v2.02

Mini Map support finally added. You may freely zoom and rotate the Minimap!

(As an aside... my coding difficulty stemmed from Blizzard respecifying the standard geometry functions in the LUA language with non-standard input/output. It totally threw me. Once I resorted to using direct LUA math.cos etc my faith in my ability to do high school maths was restored...)

The Wetlands cave has some curious scaling issues. So I coded specifically for all six zoom levels while inside the cave.

Choice of raptor sounds now. See changelog. Default is a random choice of one of several baby raptor sounds found within the WoW game files themselves. Player can choose a more adult sound too.

Did a little optimising and tidying to remove some non-LUA coding style and basically be more conformist.

Baring bug fixes and TOC file updates I can't think of much more to include with this AddOn?

Known Bug

A minor bug but perhaps off-putting:

In my travels recently, I think it was the Northern Barrens, I was in the Wailing Caverns. I entered by walking in and NOT be queuing via the dungeon/party finder.

As you walk through from the entrance until the instance portal there is a kind of preliminary cavern to explore.

It has its own map. If I recall correctly, the placement of the egg locations get triggered for this map.

I will fix in due course. Obviously minor but I will get around to fixing.

v1.01

Yup already considering.

If you looked at the code, I have several icons/templates to use but they can't be selected without editing. I'll make a command you simply enter in chat for this.

Also, I will add mini map. Sorely missing atm. But... I just learnt how to put pins on the world map. So I just need to learn about the mini map now lol. New to this map stuff, lol.
