GatherMate2 is an addon to collect and track herbs, mines, fishing pools, gas clouds, archaelogy finds and treasures, and displays them on the world map and the mini map.

GatherMate will remember the location of every herb you pick or every ore you mine, so that you can easily find the positions of the herbs and mines again. Once you come into range of a recorded spot, GatherMate will show an icon representing the type of herb/ore/fish/etc. on your mini map, directly allowing you to decide if its worth checking out. Additionally, all spots are shown on the World Map, to ease navigation to certain types of nodes and making gathering more fun.

To give you a head start, GatherMate2 also offers a pre-filled data module, so you don't need to discover all herbs and mines yourself, but instead can just start gathering right away. Simply install GatherMate2_Data and hit a few buttons to import all the provided data, and you're good to go.

    Add the ability to change the color when an items exists. For example I see the red circle for mining and when there is an item to mine the yellow is real hard to see in snow. I would like to change it to another color when I am in winterspring.

    @Museraen: Go

    The Algaefin Rockfish School got replaced by Deepsea Sagefish School in 4.3 and GM wasn't updated with that change, but i think the ticket 57 will do, please comment the tickets.

    Hey Guys, I don't what to make of this but I fished the entire southeastern coast of Twilight Highlands today and GM didn't leave behind a single icon for the Deepsea Sagefish pools and also I was collecting motes of water from swamp gas in Zangarmarsh and again not one icon for the swamp gas clouds.

    Samboda, okay. I came here just to let you know that after leaving that last comment the next time I went to Nagrad it was leaving windy cloud icons again, up until just now. But after reading your comment I should instead of deleting the steam cloud icons as they are being left, leave them and if they are close to a windy cloud icon I should begin deleting the windy cloud icons.

    Early yesterday ( 1/5/12 )  morning I was collecting motes of air in Nagrad and everything was working fine, I took a break and when I went back to collecting windy clouds GM2 began leaving steam cloud icons behind instead of windy cloud icons. It makes for a confusing map.
