About Archy - Archaeology Assistant

If you care at all about my wishes, you won't download this AddOn from SolidIce: They are leeching it from the site I actually choose to put it on.

Archy is an assistant for Archaeologists that want information at their finger tips.

  • #1133
    Sorry, if this feature is already included in the latest version, but...
    Is there any chance you could include a feature to show a list of all the available rare discoveries and which of them you have already discovered?
    With all my chars, I'm losing track of what I haven't discovered yet on the different chars.
  • #1132
    Just a question, maybe something like this already exists, but is it possible to have the locations of the nodes "marked", not just on the minimap, but also in the environment itself?
  • #1125
    There seems to be a problem with the "Drakil'Jin Ruins Digsite" which shows name and direction-arrow, but the region and race are shown as unknown. Since I use the German client, I don't really know if there is a case of misspelling as it was with the "Grimesilt Digsite".
  • #1126
    I'll look into this. Thanks!
  • #1124
    Still getting the error I mentioned before, now happening in version 1.8.2. This shows up when I first survey, but it only pops up once. Another one similar to this shows up when an artifact is solvable. And again when you complete the first survey find;

    This was fixed in 1.8.3 which was uploaded three days ago.
  • #1123
    I'm getting errors in the "Nearest Digsite" function - such as "the nearest digsite is in Northern Stranglethorn" and I'm in Tanaris, on entirely different continent.
  • #1128
    Which version are you using?
  • #1122
    Can you plzz fix this, i don't want to use the autofill
  • #1139
    Ditto - I don't want to use autofill either.
  • #1121
    To ThistleChaser - Strider2552 - trons - Ariwena - You have to go to interface - AddOns - archy - Artifacts - Autofill key stones - And then klik em in.. thats the only way it works
  • #1120
    The navigation to next dig site never used to use the in game flightmasters. Now instead of the nav arrow pointing directly to the next site, it points to the nearest flightmaster. Is there any way to turn this off? I can't find a setting for it.
  • #1129
    That is another AddOn utilizing the TomTom arrow - Archy has absolutely nothing to do with Flightmasters.
  • #1119
    Since I downloaded and installed 1.8.3, i have been unable to solve an item when using the keystones. I literally have to turn "Archy" off, solve the item, and turn "Archy" on again. This didn't happen before this patch. Please advise or fix.
