WOD/Pre-patch

I don't see a post about it so I thought I'd just ask. Any word on Carbonite for WOD? I know the pre-patch is coming tomorrow and Carbonite is a life saver! I know the quest database won't work immediately cause everything needs to get cataloged or whatever first, but is there plans to keep Carbonite alive? The map is the biggest thing for me with setting waypoints and stuff.

I'm working on it now, but it most likely won't be ready by tomorrow.

Yes, one is on the download page for it.

As an update on the addon itself, the one thing I was fearing is of course the one thing that has happened. I'm going to need to tear apart the mapping system because up until now maps all had unique names and it was by names that Carbonite tracked stuff in most cases. The few exceptions before now were instances so they had no impact, now we actually have zones with the same name so everything in the way it worked is no longer viable.

Its not possible to put some mapping function in that can determine the WoD zone and then map that to the relevant Carbonite zone ID? Seems like that would be faster than redoing the whole mapping system but, then again, I haven't seen the source code.

BTW thank you very much for updating Carbonite. I used to be a paid Carbonite user and was very unhappy when Blizzard changed their policies due to this addon. I'll go find that donate button that was mentioned to be on the download page.

It may be possible to do something like that, but it would just be a bandaid fix / hack to get things working.... and I'm trying to avoid doing bandaid fixes since before I took over that's all carbonite was getting for a couple years.

That sounds absolutely terribly complicated. Oi. I remember all the assistance you gave us when MoP came out. I'm eternally grateful to you and trust that you're doing your utmost best. <3 Thanks for all your efforts!!!

Hello, i am a german wow player since 2008.

at first, my english is very bad, sorry for that. but i must say i love carbonite frome the first day. i hope your RL is quickly becoming good. and you will have much time for this addon. my question is, where can i donate your project? i don't find any link on your website maybe i am too stupid to find it.

at last i have to say thank you, because there are many more players in other countrys who need your professionalism and skill which will by the addon become to an important tool in wow.

sorry for my bad english, i hope you can understand what i try to say!

you kidding right....Rythal is doing this not for cash but to help you and everyone else out in his spare time, what you think he has no life, you this he has no real life job, and as for the old authers yes they updated quickly, because THEY WROTE THE SCRIPT, used to program the addon so yah they do it fast they know it better then anyone, ohh and they where paid to do it as carbonite used to be a paid addon untill blizz shut them down and then they droped it faster then you can shake a stick, so i suggest instead of whining like a kid who lost his toy you wait like the rest of us and stop flaming the only guy who has the know how and the willingness to do this for free on his own time and let him get it done.

I literally created an account to say that you, AleXuTzU, are a huge jerkoff. You've clearly never done any serious programming or written a wow addon before. The 6.0 patch changed a lot of APIs (which is why almost all addons broke). One of the largest changes was how the maps worked, which is the foundation for Carbonite as a whole. Basically, Rythal is having to rewrite the kernel of Carbonite. Other addons were updated quicker because the systems they touch weren't changed as much. But when a fundamental part of your API changes, it takes work to fix it. But I wouldn't expect a selfish tool like you to understand.

Rythal, ignore the haters, buddy! Carbonite is hands down the best map and quest addon out there. I look forward to rocking it again soon.

What an absolute moron... his English is bad... like Russian (no offence to the "nice" Russians)

But really... Rythal has taken on this project after carbonite developers were to greedy for money... when they couldn't make money out of it they dropped the project.

Rythal picked it up as a fan update, and he has done a fantastic job with it.

AleXuTzU.... you make an addon you arrogant shit!!!!!!!!!

Rythal, keep up the good work ... find this guys IP address and block him from downloading the addon LOL

I'm very disappointed that you are a selfish uncaring git. If it wasn't for Rythal there would be no Carbonite anymore. So ST%U and wait like everyone else. The old authors took money from you so you could have Carbonite, Rythal does this for free and some will & already did donate because we appreciate the work already done and the work that needs yet to be done. If I hadn't already just donated your infantile rant would have certainly got my wallet out to donate just to 'unclog my nose in your general direction."
