Track multiple resources with no effort.

Automatic Tracking Switcher effortlessly monitors multiple tracking targets with minimal effort by switching between different abilities on a timer. This allows you to optimise gathering abilities for farming, or for maintaining class-specific tracking spells while still keeping an eye out for resources.

Update 1.1.0

The first feature update brings in the ability to additionally pause switching while in combat, a party dungeon, a raid instance or battleground/arena. This helps manage trackers that use global cooldowns and intefer with combat rotations, and also prevents these Trackers from appearing in damage meters and Warcraft Logs as unwarranted ‘Activity’. So now your Raid Leader won’t be asking why you cast ‘Find Herbs’ 34 times during KT!

Switcher Tracking Addon by lanscetre

This addon was heavily inspired by Switcher Tracking from lansectre. This project started as a fork of their addon as a learning experience and to improve upon it’s functionality. However, during development, it was clear that the improved features required significant changes that warranted a new addon. Thanks for lansectre for the inspiration to create this project. All the code in this addon has been written from scratch, and nothing has been duplicated.

So what improvements were made?

This addon was created to do three things desired from using Switcher Tracking:
1. Remove the switch sound effect (the ‘click’ sound when activating a tracker)
2. Stop the switch from interrupting ‘aiming’ (Blizzard, certain bomb items etc)
3. Stop the switch from closing the loot window prematurely

The other improvement is through an enhanced Interface Options panel, that provides a graphical way to manipulate addon settings. These settings include:
[] The switch interval [default: 2 seconds]
] Start the switch automatically on login [default: on]
[] Mute the default switch sound effect [default: on]
[] Play a sound effect when the switch has been ‘paused’ [default: off]
] Play a sound effect once switching ‘resumes’ [default: off]
] Pause the switch when the mouse is over the minimap [default: off]
[] Pause the switch during combat, or while inside instanced content (dungeons, raids, battlegrounds)
] Enable/Disable which tracking abilities to switch between [default: Find Minerals, Find Herbs]

When is it ‘paused’?

When certain conditions are met, the switch between tracking abilities is ‘paused’ until the condition has passed. For instance, as per the improvements above, the switch won’t occur, or will be ‘paused’, while the player is looting or aiming.

This is the list of all the conditions the addon must pass in order to switch abilities:
[] The tracking ability is not on cooldown
] The player is not casting a spell or item
[] The player is not channeling a spell or item
[] The player is not looting
] The player doesn’t have something on their cursor (left-click drag of loot or spell etc)
] The player isn’t in ‘targeting’ mode (free-aim like Blizzard or some throwable items, usually bombs)
[] The option to pause while the cursor is on the minimap is enabled, and the cursor is over the minimap
] The option to pause while in combat, or in instanced content is set and the user is in that state

Still to come…

There are still a some features yet to be implemented that are currently in-development, and I would love to hear your feedback or ideas on what to include in future releases.
