I installed the Gatherer add-on last night. Awesome utility for knowing where to pick up (in my case) herbs) when I got on flower picking expeditions. Someone mentioned that a completed file might be available...
What that means is that the software itself records a given location that an item is harvested (ie so you know where to return for a later spawn). A completed file, would circumvent the initial picking process so that I can just go to the known spawn points.
Okay, I downloaded what I think is the entire herb database. It downloads as a TSV file. I thought it would be as simple as pulling the file to the right directory and 'viola', but I do not see a TSV file at all and am wondering if I need to convert it per the text on that site.
Anyone know what I need to do to get this incorporated into my add-on?
Yes: you need to download the gatherbook addon, available at the same site. When you load Gatherbook, the first thing you need to do is find your savedvariables.lua file. This is in your WoW directory under WTF/Account/ACCOUNTNAME/savedvariables.lua
Once you find that, click Load. Probably nothing will show up, just let it be. Then click Merged Import at the bottom and select the .tsv file you downloaded. After that, click Save (right next to load). Then load up WoW and you're all set.
