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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    nwm found em, but they could be separated as own option.
  • #390
    the widgets *are* scalable...but the sliders to do so are buried in one of several tabs.

    i've found that adjusting the scaling down to 80% is about optimum for my screen.
  • #403
    then how do i scale the archy windows?
  • #384
    Constant errors after joining an instance while surveying.
  • #385
    Could you submit a ticket on or send me a private message with the exact error(s) you are getting?
  • #421
    hope this helps, didn't have watter enabled at the time :/
  • #391
    i've done a couple of instances while prospecting with no issues...for what it's worth.
  • #386
    Sure, 15 min to the next instance, I'll grab a copy of the error then.
  • #387
    Thanks. I'm trying to replicate it as well. 40 min queues :(
  • #380
    I really like this add-on. It shows great promise in aiding the Archaeology profession. Thanks!
  • #379
    Great addon. Thanks for this. Wouldn't mind some more customization but I'm a customizing whore.
  • #378
    Can someone explain how the green and yellow dig site radius options work? I assumed it was to count down until you were closer to the target but seems to go opposite, counting up as I distance myself from the survey point.
