About LibTourist-3.0

LibTourist is a library that provides information about zones, instances, transports and more.

For zones, instances, complexes (like Caverns of Time), arenas and battlegrounds, LibTourist can provide level range, faction, location and connections with other zones, as well as instance group sizes, instance entrance portal coordinates, battle pet level ranges and required fishing skills, if applicable.

Color-coding for level ranges and zone names is available.

Relationships between zones can be provided, i.e. which instances are located in a specific complex, and in which zone resides the complex, vice versa.

The library contains information about known cross-zone transports: zeppelins, boats, portals etcetera. It can also be used for distance calculations between coordinates.

An extensive API allows the addon developer to query LibTourist in many ways.

LibTourist supports localization.

See the API Reference page for detailed information.


A few notes about the fishing skills in LibTourist:

- All fishing skills are now set to the skill required to fish 100% junk-free. If your skill, including the effect of lures and other enhancements, is below that, you will catch a certain percentage of junk, which can be up to 100%.

- These values are valid for open water, because fishing pools requires skill 1 since WoW patch 3.3.0, regardless of the zone they're in.

- If multiple values apply for a zone, generally the lowest is used. For example, for Northern Stranglethorn a higher skill is required to fish the South Seas (300) compared to other waters (150), so it's value in LibTourist is set to 150.

- Zones that have a fishing skill of 1, allow fishing in lava or acid only. Don't expect to catch anything useful here, except for an incidental Elemental Fire from lava.

- Zones without a fishing skill should contain no fishable water.

- Fishing in Draenor works differently. Depending on your skill you will catch Small, 'normal' or Enormous fish. For all Draenor zones the fishing skill is set to 950, which is the skill required to catch nothing but Enormous Fish.

- Currently it is assumed the mechanism used in Draenor also applies to the zones on the Broken Isles continent (WoW Legion).

Bugfix: GetEnglishZoneFromTexture did not return anything for the textures of the duplicate zones (Nagrand (Draenor), Shadowmoon Valley (Draenor) and The Maelstrom (zone)). Fixed this by adding the unique names for the duplicate zones to the localization tables.

API changes:
- Added function GetUniqueEnglishZoneNameForLookup(zoneName, continentID)
Returns a unique English zone name to be used to lookup data in LibTourist, based on a localized or English zone name.
- GetUniqueZoneNameForLookup now also accepts non-localized English zoneNames

--Major revision--
- Finally developed a way to convert the output of GetCurrentMapZone to the zone offsets LibTourist needs, which were previously provided by UpdateMapHighlight. Completely rewrote the mechanism that gathers zone sizes, offsets and texture names. This allowed the removal of the weird and buggy use of UpdateMapHighlight as well as several hacks that were implemented in  attempts to make that mechanism work for all zones. Despite those attempts, it turned out that LibTourist has been using incorrect data for 34 zones.

KNOWN ISSUE: For Dalaran, Shrine of Two Moons and Shrine of Seven Stars, GetCurrentMapZone() returns no data (0), therefore no distances can be calculated from, to or within these three zones.

- Revised/rewrote the rather outdated API functions GetYardDistance and TransposeZoneCoordinate. These functions should now be able to properly calculate distances and transposes between all Azeroth continents, except for The Maelstrom. Made the functions more robust and if the calculation cannot be made, nil is returned instead of incorrect values. Due to the improved data gathering, these functions should now be more reliable. Added comments.
Revised the API function GetBestZoneCoordinate as well.

Other fixes:
- API functions GetZoneFromTexture and GetEnglishZoneFromTexture should now work for the garrison texture names with the _tier<n> postfix.
- Had to add hard-coded size, offset and texture name values for garrison zones Frostwall and Lunarfall (thanks, Sutorix!) because the garrison data is sometimes not available yet when LibTourist performs its initialization. Besides that, this data is only available if the character has established a garrison and only for that garrison (not for the other faction).
- Added zone The Maelstrom (lvl82 sanctuary) to the new mechanism for duplicates zones, to (finally) be able to distinguish it from the continent with the same name. The unique lookup name for LibTourist has "(zone)" added to it and will be provided, localized, by GetUniqueZoneNameForLookup. See release notes for r169.

API change:
- New function IsContinent(zone). Returns true for all continents including Azeroth.

- bugfix: GetYardDistance: it is now possible to calculate distances *within* a zone for which LibTourist is unable to retrieve zone offset data. This includes the garrison zones Frostwall and Lunarfall. Calculating distances from or to such a zone is still a problem (GetYardDistance returns nil if no offsets are available) but I'm working on that.
- added fishing skill for Frostwall and Lunarfall. For now, the value is set to 750, as for the other Draenor zones.
- expanded GetLevel() with brackets [90-94] and [95-99] for battlegrounds.
