All Minimap based frames (such as nodes, dig sites and dig site boundaries) have been prefixed now with ArchyMinimap To stop these addons from taking these frames from the minimap, add the following item to their protected items list: ArchyMinimap

Mini-Guide to Fewer Digs

James D. Callahan III:
    - Ensure the digsite's map icon always has a tooltip.
    - Cleanup.
    - Always update the minimap icons for the nearest site, instead of attempting to cache whether or not they've been shown/hidden. Fixes ticket #557
    - If Archaeology is unknown, return 0, 0 instead of nil for GetArchaeologyRank()
    - Make sure currentDigsite isn't nil in ARCHAEOLOGY_FIND_COMPLETE before trying to manipulate it. Should only happen when digging immediately after a UI reload, but I keep getting reports... fixes ticket #554.
    - Make sure ArtifactFrame isn't nil before checking whether or not it has a skillBar. Fixes ticket #558.
    - If a match has already been found for spellID, don't look for another value.
    - Added artifact template field "usesItemForProjectName" to fix the remainder of ticket #549.

    Amazing addon!
    It would be really nice to see, if you are working on an undiscovered artifact (text colour or something else). That would be great in regard of several achievements including Diggerest.
  • #327
    I am having a problem with the latest build, everytime I survey I get spammed with "Archy: TomTom doesn't exist... disabling it"

    OKay that's nice its disable, BUT WHY KEEP SPAMMING ME?! D:
  • #328
    I have a fix for this coming in the next version.
  • #326
    5 stars for lack of a 10 stars option.

    THIS is what the Archaeology UI should look like.
  • #323
    Can there be an option to disable one click solving and/or add a optional confirmation dialog. Using it for the first time, having it crammed over my UI I ended up wasting artifacts I've been saving up to get rares once I get sufficient skill.

    Not very useful if all your work and fragments are wasted just trying to set it up.
  • #325
    Blacklist the races you are saving at the time. When it's time to spend the fragments, unblacklist the race.

    If the displays are too big, change the scale for both the artifacts and dig sites list in the Archy options.
  • #321
    Would it be possible to list which (known) artifacts are left to be discovered for a specific race?
  • #320
    1.7b4 is out. This will be the last beta release for today now that I have got the curseforge repository stuff under control (I think).
  • #316
    1.7b2 can't find LibDBIcon because ToC path is incorrect.

    It's actually located at:


  • #317
    now that I've fixed LibDBIcon and can actually see the update...woah! this is really going places.
  • #318
    I'm starting to use the pkgmeta and curseforge repository stuff.
    It should now be working correctly. *fingers crossed*
  • #315
    Personally, the first impression this addon gave was great. I haven't had any of the errors others have mentioned. It has definitely made Archaeology a lot less cumbersome. Mad props to the author.
  • #311
    I have a couple of questions:
    Does this addon have any major conflicts with addons that modify the minimap - like Carbonite? Does it support the Carbonite Tom-Tom or only the Tom-Tom addon?
