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.

    "Solve artifacts with (left click) or without (right click) keystones by clicking on the racial crest icon in the on-screen artifacts list or bind a key for a one stop solve shop" Did you change this? It worked like this on an older version but the version I have now (the latest one), left clicking on the artifact opens the Archeology window. To Solve it, you have to expand the artifact list, which takes up more screen real estate.

    I liked the way it used to be where you could right click/left click, and it didn't take up so much room.

    Also, it seems to be playing the "Solvable" sound when I have enough with a keystone but not enough artifacts alone, even though I do not have "Include keystones" checked.

    Check in your options (Ctrl + Left Click on the archeology minimap icon) under General and see if "Lock Positions" is checked.

    qft -- it's natural that there will be bumps in the road. He's been very responsive to bug reports and to improvement suggestions. I counsel patience.

    now it shows ##/## in how many out of how many, i would like a simple option to show ##/##/-## (how many out of how many, how many needed)

    Love the mod, few suggestions for it though.

    -Allow people to turn off project names in the lists and also compress both the digsites and artifacts into the same list, for a more minimalistic UI.

    -Instead of the default Blizzard digsite area outline on the minimap, give a alternate view that simply connects all the digsite points that are in the users database together with high contrast lines.

    --If possible based on these lines highlight the closest match with the direction the telescope is aiming.

    -I don't know if it's a bug or not, but when digsites on the minimap are outside of the circle they still show up, at least on my end.

    -Range finder to nearest known dig spot at a dig site along with a compass.

    I had to remove Archy because when I went to the Dire Maul digsite, my fps dropped from 50 to 1.5. Disabling Archy returned me to my normal fps.
  • #443
    I think it has something to do with "open" areas like Dire Maul, the new Zul'Gurub and Sunken Temple, although Tol Barad was fine. Flying around those areas is sure to kill my fps, though it returns to normal after I exit. I'm making a list of place my fps goes south, b/c it's not EVERY instance. Once I have a more complete list of "laggy" spots I'll post so that maybe the author can glom onto what's causing it.
