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.

Using GatherMate2 is straight-forward.
After the installation, GatherMate2 is automatically active and collecting data.

    That's excellent news.

    If you want me to try out anything, just drop me a PM and I'll try importing from my live db.

    Excellent work on Gathermate(2)

    Long time user of Gathermate and find it essential as a mad altoholic crafter.

    Raised ticket 2 as in the beta the nodes for Obsidium are called "Obsidium Deposit" and not "Obsidian Chunk". End result is that the nodes don't get tracked.

    Simple update of locale and Constants.lua files for Mining[233] and they are tracked again.

    Keep up the great work!

    Edit: Confirmed that build 20100921205621 corrects this issue. Many thanks for a very speedy fix.

    Check your filter settings as it was working for me with a brand new char, that just learned mining and herbalism.

    Well 1 issue, missing locale entries were causing excessive degbut toll error generation. thats been fixed. Since i was using a debug version where acelocale wasnt checking for keys I wasnt seeing that issue. so please try again and let me know.
