Pets and Mounts

25 - Allow per-character overrides for a single profile, on separate mount/pet "profiles"

At the moment a profile shares everything: mount and pet preferences, and overrides. This is usually great -- it means I can select the pets I want once, and have that applied to all my characters equally, which is great. I generally don't need different sets for those.

What I would like is to be able to set my warlock to only use the felsteed (for the water-riding glyph) without having to give that up. I also have some other per-character preferences (eg: DK and Paladin class mounts).

I have seen a few other addons that do this with multiple "profiles": TomTom is an example, which defaults to a shared "options" profile, but per-character "waypoint" profiles. Implementing something similar that split the pet and mount lists would work: I could set up per-character mount profile overrides. It wouldn't be as nice as "force this and only this", but it would do.

Alternately, making the "overrides" per-character so that I can force only felsteed on my 'lock, but let it be free for others, would be great.

    I set this ticket as fixed, as this will be integrated with 2.0.

    Wich is still not started yet, I am waiting for WoD and a working 1.7.x fully compatible with WoD.

    Hey. I never actually responded to you because I never got a note from the system about your comment. I actually want the reverse, kind of: I want to only use the felsteed as a ground mount, on the 'lock, even if I have other mounts selected.

    In fact, the easiest way to say this might be: I have some character specific mount preferences, but want the pet selection shared across all my characters.

    Would it be easier to implement that way -- separate profiles using AceDB for pets and mounts? Migration is reasonably obvious, just split the old DB into the two new ones, using the same profiles.

    That would actually be one hundred percent of what I need.

    If you check the Felsteed on your lock and log on another character, it will not be used, those mounts are filtered (classes, pvp, achievements, races, etc mounts are filtered).

    For example. I got a set WaterLock with the Dreadsteed selected in both ground and water walking categories, then I use an area set on Timeless Island with only this set selected.

    I will think on a system adding an option to move the selected pets or mounts to global scope, or perhaps a multi profiles system I dunno. Those modifications are heavy and need to be perfect to not screw players actual databases.
