    Can't get the dots to show where ive surveyed before on the minimap even with tomtom installed =/
  • #337
    I have a fix coming soon for this problem.
  • #332
    Great addon one of my instant favorites, I would like to ask if you could add some Druid flight form support to the double click Survey (macro version would be /cancelform [stance:6]).

  • #331
    I'm going back to the last stable release as the new UI for Archy is to me, an eyesore, I wish you included the option to have either that new layout or the old text one.

    otherwise an awesome addon
  • #334
    Yes, the new UI is horrible. Way too prominend compared to the lightweight old one. Please add the old one back!
  • #394
    it also doesn't scale with the rest of the UI
  • #330

    Amazing addon!
    It would be really nice to see, if you are working on an undiscovered artifact (text colour or something else). That would be great in regard of several achievements including Diggerest.
  • #327
    I am having a problem with the latest build, everytime I survey I get spammed with "Archy: TomTom doesn't exist... disabling it"

    OKay that's nice its disable, BUT WHY KEEP SPAMMING ME?! D:
  • #328
    I have a fix for this coming in the next version.
  • #326
    5 stars for lack of a 10 stars option.

    THIS is what the Archaeology UI should look like.
  • #323
    Can there be an option to disable one click solving and/or add a optional confirmation dialog. Using it for the first time, having it crammed over my UI I ended up wasting artifacts I've been saving up to get rares once I get sufficient skill.

    Not very useful if all your work and fragments are wasted just trying to set it up.
  • #325
    Blacklist the races you are saving at the time. When it's time to spend the fragments, unblacklist the race.

    If the displays are too big, change the scale for both the artifacts and dig sites list in the Archy options.
  • #321
    Would it be possible to list which (known) artifacts are left to be discovered for a specific race?
  • #320
    1.7b4 is out. This will be the last beta release for today now that I have got the curseforge repository stuff under control (I think).
