About Minimal Archaeology

Description

View all your artifacts progress, and solve them in one compact frame. Also you can view all your artifact history neatly sorted by race, and a list of digsites. You can left-click the keystone button to attach keystones (or right-click to remove), or if you prefer there are options to automatically use keystones! You can monitor the artifacts progress, or how close you are to the 200 fragment cap.

(08.11.11)Updated the ToC to 40200, unfortunatly I have not had any time for WoW or this addon and probably won't for a while, if you or someone you know is interested in helping me with the addon send me an email/pm.

(04.27.11) - Artifact progress bars should be more reliable, Added zone information to the Active Digsite Indicator, Fixed crash when MinArch and Blizz Arch were open at the same time, and some more smaller stuff.

(04.15.11) - Cleaned up over 90% of the code so it's possible that I broke something, added a couple new features, including monitoring the 200 fragment cap. Fixed the progress bars, although sometimes the texture isn't applied, ('/console reloadui' usually fixes it). Added artifacts sale price to the tooltip.

(02.09.11) - Fixed bug where Minimal Archaeology would not get the proper information about available keystones. There is still a problem with the artifact bars not being completely accurate...

(01.10.11) - Fixed a couple of bugs relating to history and added Discovered Date and Number Discovered (if relevant) to the main Minimal Archaeology frame.

(01.09.11) - Added a missing artifact to the dwarf history page.

(01.08.11) - Hopefully fixed a couple of small bugs. Added a history frame (who needs the default ui anyway), if I've missed an artifact or made any mistakes with this please let me know.

(12.24.10) - I forgot to update the toc, so this version still reports 12.23.10-2, sorry about that. Small bugfixes, added tooltip to keystone button to indicate available keystones (might need a little bit of work still). Also added keybindings to show/hide minimal archaeology, and to survey.

(12.23.10-2) - Fixed a bug that had and an archaeology icon floating next to the tooltip.

(12.23.10) - The skill bar should now hide when at max level. Added a button to open the default interface. Added a small distinction between fragment progress and progress gained with keystones. Also text for rare items should be colored blue. Added the artifacts icon to the lore tooltip. Small bugfixes.

(12.22.10) - Added the option to scale the Minimal Archaeology frame. Also added an option to wait to solve artifacts before auto-hiding after completing a dig site.

(12.21.10) - I did some major code cleanup, I'll do this every once-in-a-while since I get better as I go, and it makes the code a lot easier to work with. Also implemented an experimental fix for users that were experiencing initializing nil values. Last but not least, I added two new options, one to always start hidden, the other to auto-hide after completing a dig site (I need to expand on this and will). Also right-clicking the minimap will bring up the options panel.

(12.20.10) - Use keystones by left-clicking the keystone button, remove them with a right-click. Options to automatically use keystones.

(12.19.10) - Fixed the issue with the sound repeating. Adjusted the lore tooltip. The frame now remembers what state it was in at logout (so if it was closed when you logged out, it will be closed when you log in). Added an options panel which allows you to hide specific artifact bars, the minimap button and disable the notification sound.

Known Issues

History window sometimes doesn't populate, open BlizzArch History and close it, MinArch should refresh the history (if not, then it will refresh after solving an artifact)

Bars sometimes don't have a fill texture '/console reloadui' sometimes fixes this.

Sometimes bars do not immediately update after completing an artifact, (open/close BlizzArch should refresh it, or wait until you collect a new fragment)

Feedback

Any Bugs/Comments/Suggestions/etc... are appreciated.

    I didn't try rhis addon yet - does it have a HUD and artifakt pins like gathermate should have?

  • #318

    No, this is a simple addon giving you a minimalistic window to see progress on selected races with a solve button. Theres also a list over all projects and count for how many you have solved of each. No nodes of any sorts.

  • #314

    I've uploaded a new version. It's hard to fix bugs without having the WoD expansion though, so forgive if it's taking longer.

  • #315

    I tested the new version 6.0.5 and got no errors anymore *thumbsup*

    Hello

    I am getting the same bug

  • #306

    New bugs introduced with the last update hours ago.

  • #307

    And you neither post what they are, nor do you make a ticket about them? What a useless post.

  • #316

    Kindda expected everyone to have the expansion so that you would actually see the bugs yourself, so no reason for me to write em up. Weird not having the expansion but making an addon for it.

    Logged in now, seems to be fixed like Dargor says.

    I don't have WoD. No idea how I would fix this error... it doesn't seem to happen on my toons without WoD.

    In any case please make a ticket for it.

    Update:

    Also every time you loot garrison resources you'll get this error.

  • #304

    There appears to be a bug with the history//artifact completed window on the horde side, for Draenor//WOD arch races.

    Arrakkoa race shows the Draenor Clans artifacts.

    Draenor Clans shows the Ogre artifacts.

    Ogre shows the Arrakkoa artifacts.

    Then I'm assuming from where it's trying to pull the info from, (eg: arrakkoa completion from the wrong location), it never tags them as having been completed, or number of completions (the latter of which would help for achievement tracking)

    Glanced into the History.LUA file and couldn't figure it out to attempt to fix it myself >.>

    It's not only on the Horde side. I just discovered this aswell on my Alliance character. I don't know how to fix it, but I hope it will be corrected soon. Otherwise a very neat overview of your archeo' progress :)
