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.

    Can we somehow get this integrated?
  • #428
    How do you mean integrate? I have data mined all the dig site information out of the WoW for each language.
  • #462
    Then why is it that we have to keep digging around instead of having the different points to show us where it might be?

    Granted it's just me being lazy and not wanting to keep having to find the new points in areas I haven't done yet, but yeah.

    In sum: Place the data mined static pinpoints on the minimap as default.
  • #402
    How can I move the list? It is defaulted to right on top of my player portrait.
  • #401
    Feature Request: Can you make the minimap "shovel" icon that is closest show up as a different color? Or maybe shades that darken as the digsites are further from you? Would prevent the opening of the map to see where they are.

    Great mod!

    Great mod! I have 1 issue to point out. I use a mod called minimap button frame and when I have archy enabled lots of invisible buttons appear in my button frame making it larger with space in between the other buttons. I don't know if it's archy or MBF that is the problem but I though I figured it was worth pointing out.
  • #397
    Having issues with the digsite menu and the artifact menu laying on top of each other in the upper left-hand corner.
    I installed the most recent version and have yet to config anything.
  • #398
    What UI do you use? I likey
  • #427
    TukUI :3
  • #396
    The "closest site" indicator on the MiniMap is very german.
    If I don't want to go to the next closest side it won't stop pointing towards it. No matter how far I already am.
    If I arrive on the site I wanted to go to it also fails to show me the site boundaries on the minimap until I turn it off and on again.
  • #393
    Great and very useful addon. One option I'd like would be 'hide in party/raid'
  • #392
    Hey, first off all very nice addon and thx for the work on it.

    but i have one suggestion.
    is it possible to get an option to hide the artefact name in the artefact view? some artefact names are to long and overlap the count of fragments, and i dont need the name, because i see the name on mouse over the icon ;)
  • #395
    Oh and an other suggestion is, to put a cooldown timer in the distance indicator.
    its annoying that i don't see the cooldown when i use the doubleclick feature.
  • #389
    First of all, absolutely awesome mod with an amazing turnover rate for updates. Great job and many thanks.

    1) Nodes no longer display on the edges of the minimap when they are 'off' of the shown area, personally I really dislike this change. If there was an option to toggle the way it behaved, that would be ideal. (At the risk of making it overly complicated, having a distance to the site center check preventing them from showing up while half a zone away would be best, but it isn't something that would bother me personally).

    2) The LDB configure options have gone from great (though bugged, so just in concept) to very restrictive. Personally, I'd like to disable the tooltip on the minimap icon all together or at least have it limited to something very specific.

    Again, I want to stress what an amazing job you have done with this mod!
  • #388
    I would like to see couple of options to this mod.
    1. Minimode/scalability, ability to see a mini version of this that does not take as much space, previous version was better (even tho now it looks good) as it did not take so much space on the viewscreen.
    2. G-15 & g-19 keyboard support, yes, id like to see this view on the 3rd screen, as it would better fit on it than the main view.
    3. ability to turn background off or make it transparent for the archy windows.
    4. The border of archaeologic site is showing off the minimap, not a big deal, but i cant make my mind if i like or dislike it.
