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.

    Thanks, works fine now :)

    Love this addon but for me it has 1 issue and dont understand the reason for it. Doing what it is supposed to be so that part is awesome. But I have noticed sudden drops in Frame rates on WoW. Now today I went to Shettek Halls and my PC kept going to about 5 FPS which has never happened before. Turned off Archy and back to normal in there. Turned it back on and back to 5fps. Have no idea why it is happening but having to disable an addon to go in a dungeon seems weird.

    I've noticed this too, even after a complete uninstall (saved variables and all) and then clean re-install of latest 1.7b version. It's not in every instance though and it's not related to Cata; some are just fine, but others cause it. In fact, I was flying OVER Dire Maul with no framerate issues, then started to fly over (dig site was there) and it instantly went to the choppy behaviour. I struggled to get out of the 'zone' and once I went a bit beyond, fps went back to normal.

    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!
  • #399
    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 ;)
