Feed-O-Matic 3.0.3

  • Includes an update to the PeriodicTable library and its food lists:
    • Fixes subcategory/supercategory linkage issues that caused FOM to ignore certain foods (such as Conjured Mana Biscuit and Naaru Ration).
    • Includes all (currently known to Wowhead) new foods from Wrath of the Lich King content.
  • Reorganized the Food Preferences panel slightly to account for Wrath of the Lich King foods having more possible cooking products. (Don’t like mammoth? Try cooking it differently!)
  • Fixed an error that could occur when FOM chooses the next food to use.
  • Fixed an issue where FOM wouldn’t choose a food (and thus feeding would be unavailable) after reloading the UI.
  • Fixed an issue where category headers would inconsistently appear grayed out in the Food Preferences list.
  • Items that aren’t in the PeriodicTable categories corresponding to the six possible pet diets (i.e. not edible by pets) will no longer show in the Food Preferences list.
  • Added more random feeding emotes thanks to the commenters at maniasarcania.com. Feeding emotes can now be made specific to categories of foods (specified by PeriodicTable sets).

    Thanks for all your hard work! One feature I miss from earlier versions, though. I want to save food that are for cooking recipes I currently know that are orange or yellow. Recipes that are green or grey are totally acceptable for my pet to eat the mats for. I don’t want to have to constantly search for and revise the ignore list. What happened to the setting of “don’t eat cooking mats” with the little drop down of what level of skill to not eat?

  2. Gazmik Fizzwidget Says:

    I found that the cooking-skill-based exclusions don’t work all that well at level 70 and cooking 375. At that point, very few recipes are yellow or green, and those that are don’t produce a hunter’s favorite foods — meanwhile, the recipes that produce Agility and Attack Power food are all gray.

    So I’ve replaced the cooking-skill-based exclusions with per-food exclusions — on the new Food Preferences panel you can see what cooking recipes use each food, and mouse over them to see the full tooltip for the cooked food (to decide whether it’s something worth saving for) and how likely the recipe is to grant you skillups. Then you can individually disable the foods you want to save while continuing to feed your pet the rest.

    Missing Fungus: 28112 — Underspore Pod

  4. Gazmik Fizzwidget Says:

    Underspore Pod is fruit (and is included as such), not fungus. I just tested again to make sure — pets that eat fungus but not fruit won’t eat it.

  5. Ken Says:

    Confirmed, you’re correct it’s in the .lua file, however my boar still can’t find the food and doing a /fom and browsing the food list it doesn’t show the Underspore Pod. Also tried /fom reset and it still doesn’t show in the food lists.

  6. Gazmik Fizzwidget Says:

    Hmm… In that case, I’d suggest checking for other copies of the PeriodicTable library among your installed addons. Normally, when multiple addons try to load the same shared library, the newer overrides the older, but there might be some scenarios in which this fails… especially since there are auto-updater apps out there that have options for disembedding libraries.

    Previous versions allowed players to bind a key from the add-on’s option menu. Now it says I have to click the pet’s happiness icon to bind. Well, I click it and nothing happens… So, do I have to use a macro?

  8. Gazmik Fizzwidget Says:

    I guess the text in the options panel might be unclear: it’s “click, bind, or macro”, not “click to bind, or macro”. The Feed-O-Matic key binding is found in the (Blizzard) Key Bindings panel.

    Still cant Auto feed my Wind Serpent the Naaru Rations thru FOM, even though I can manually feed it with feed pet skill. It is considered Bread and my Pet does eat Bread. FOM will not recognize it at all.

    Currently, I’m getting this error: Date: 2008-10-24 17:44:31

    whenever my pet goes hungry. Otherwise it works fine. Thanks for a nice, helpful addon!

  11. Gazmik Fizzwidget Says:


    Sounds like you might be having the same problem as Ken. Are there other addons using the PeriodicTable library installed, or are you using an auto-addon-updater program with an option to disembed libraries?


    Are you actually running FOM 3.0.3? That error is fixed in this version.

  12. Can Says:

    Im using WoWMatrix to dowload and Install. Ill try uninstalling FOM and downloading from your site and see if that fixes it.

  13. Can Says:

    Sorry for double post, Other Addons using PT are Cartographer and Fubar-GarbageFu.

  14. Can Says:

    And Triple Post, Issue is Fixed. Replaced the LibPeriodicTable Consumables folder in GarbageFu with the one from FOM and my issue is resolved.

  15. Glumli Says:

    I’m sorry for starting a bit of noise, I was dead certain I was running the latest without actually checking.


  16. David Says:

    I am using fom 3.0.3 and the bar that shows my pet happiness and the food for it is stuck right in the middle of my screen. Before the latest patch I could drag it where I wanted it. Any suggestions?
