Farmhand Full

Farmhand adds dynamic buttons on the screen while you are at Sunsong Ranch.

The buttons allow quick access to the Plow, Shovel, Bug Spray and Watering Can if they are in your inventory. If you do not have a given item, there will be no button for it. Also adds buttons for seeds that are in your inventory. You can even sell unwanted seeds at a vendor without having to open your bags.

When you leave Halfhill, any tools remaining in your inventory will be dropped. You can pick them up again at the farm. (You can disable this feature.)

A special Crop Scanner tool will let you quickly find any plants you've overlooked that need special attention. (Very hand for the hard-to see Smothered and Runty plants.)

To move the buttons, hold SHIFT and drag a button with the left mouse button.

In the Interface Options panel, you can turn on/off tool dropping, turn on/off chat messages and sounds, turn on/off the portal shard buttons and control whether Farmhand automatically hides itself during combat.

I recommend using Masque (optional) to make your buttons pretty.

Farmhand has translations for all game-supported locales, but if you see a bad translation please visit the localization page and correct it. Then let me know so I can repackage the addon to pick up the changes.

Thanks to all the translators!

    I'm looking into it, but I'm not sure there will be much I can do. In the meantime, try writing the macro to only target Runty and Smothered plants of each type, which are the hardest to see. Better than nothing, right?

    So I just added the french locale to Farmhand :)

    However, do note that the macro to search for crops/soils in need of attention won't work as adjectives are placed at the end of the crops' name. Since /tar only does partial matching from the start of it ("One Two" won't match "/tar Two"), it turns out that the crops are always looking good...

    Haven't thought of a way around it yet so if you see one, I've put the translation of all possible ailments in the macro.

    Thanks for the addon, it's really handy :)

    Scanner button has been showing fine for me, english client. Great work on this.

    Yeah, I'm on the english client, but the scanner button didn't show until I just upgraded to 1.02b.

    If it's working, then clicking the scanner will target any crop that needs attention and put a skull icon above it.

    It does this by targeting by name, so if you're not using the English client then it might not work.

    How does the plant scanner tool work? I can't seem to see any indicators.

    Awesome. Many thanks!

    You can now disable this. You can hold SHIFT to move the buttons and you'll also notice a little lock icon appear next to the tools. Engage the lock and the addon will never drop the tools again.

    I'm reluctant to add a page to the Interface Options just for the tool-drop. I may have another idea for it though. Stay tuned.

    Nice job. Quality of life addons like this are really awesome.

    Two suggestions, however.

    One, make the deletion of the farm tools when leaving Halfhill an option and not automatic.

    And two, a way to lock the frame in place once you place it where you want it.
