Companions with multiple looks - collection test page

Unread post by Wain » Sat Jun 20, 2020 6:00 pm

Do you like to collect as many looks as possible for each companion pet?

I’ve created a test page that lists all the companion pets that have multiple looks (and sizes), and if you’re logged in to WCM and have a valid character added then it’ll grab your Armory data and indicate which colours of each pet you have and haven’t collected:

https://warcraftmounts.com/multi_look_companions.php

It’s not normally my thing to create pages for companion pets, but this is something that Warcraft Pets doesn’t support yet and I wanted it for my own use. So I thought I’d share it here in case anyone else finds it handy too. 😊 If WCP adds support for this in the future I’ll probably just remove the page.

Please let me know if you have any problems with it, or have any suggestions.

This is super useful!

Even though I only choose to collect one of each pet, this still helps me look at all of my options and pick my favourite from them.

I've updated the page, so now when you're logged in it will split the info into different sections:
- pets for which you're missing colours and still have space to collect (I'm ignoring the chance you might own 2-3 of the one colour)
- pets for which you're missing colours, but you can't collect any more (because you own 3 colours)
- pets for which you own all the colours
- the size-only pet variants are at the end, but I don't differentiate those based on how many you own

Is it possible for a person to check if they have identical looking pet model/skin/size-wise, but on a different pet type? I was looking for that in the pet journal api once, but got side-tracked.

I saw Quintessene's page for "unique tinted pets for 8.2", that's why I was wondering if it could be done automatically or if it had to be done by eye. https://wowpetaddiction.blogspot.com/20 ... hagon.html

It would probably be too much work for me to map every display ID for every pet in the database to its colour, and I'm not looking to replace WCP :) But maybe I could just look at the pets I am displaying and flag which ones are colours that are completely unique to them. I could put a little star in the corner or something. If the user wants to know which other pets display the non-unique looks they could follow the link to WCP and search for related pets.

I know I'm missing pets from BfA patches, but at this point I want to have all the 9.0 info/pics before I update the wild pets thread :)
