46 - For WotLK, add a UI for selecting mounts

Pre-WotLK, GoGoMount randomly selects from mounts in your bags. With the new system, GoGoMount is selecting from all available mounts. When I get something new, I generally "demote" one of my old mounts, and have a new set randomly selected. With the new mount system, there's no good way to do this. The current "preferred mount" isn't really what I'm after; I want to be able to pick 2-4 land and 2-4 flying mounts, and have those used as part of the random selection, with the rest ignored.

    Still in progress.. but I have something to show for it now.  :)

    Currently testing zone specific mount favorites GUI.

    I do believe that LibStub is only a versioning library and isn't actually needed at all for anything besides that. But if you have some other solution in mind then that would be fine as well, I was only suggesting a nice alternative :)

    Tekkub is using libstub library for options it appears.  I won't start embedding libraries into GoGoMount.  I have a couple new ideas, just need time to actually work on them.

    This is now a very old request but if you still are looking for a way to handle the UI implementation I would suggest taking a look at how Tekkub does it in his addon "Kennel". A pretty simple solution that do not have the problems of modifying the companion frame. It also consolidates the options to where they really should be located.

    I would like to add that I would love to have this. I like to collect mounts, but I really hate the ones I that are so tall you get caught up on scenery on a regular basis and I would like to ignore those mounts, but to still randomly select from the rest of the mounts, and any new ones I get.

    I've seen it modified and I've seen mods that replace the mount / pet window which would cause this part of GoGoMount to be unavailable to them.  I may do it this way anyways and hope no one uses GoGoMount with these other mods.

    "Thoughts on this? "

    Sounds like an excellent idea. And, if someone is modding their mounts and pets dialog already, then they have the / menu. A good example of the kind of UI you're talking about is used by ClosetGnome. It uses a green, yellow, red schema on items on the character gui.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean. GoGoMount already detects all flying and non-flying zones in Wrath except for one landing pad in Dalaran which I just added with a recent beta.  If you're getting errors with mounting open a new ticket and I'll check it out.

    Sounds like a fair idea, hope to get it working with wrath zones where flying is castable, but just gets an error when attempting to. Just something to look out for with the feature.
