stArchaeologist
Version: 1.2b
by: Safturento [More]
I was looking around for archaeology addons, but there were none that I was in love with. So naturally, I decided to write my own.

When you mouseover a progress bar, it will show you information on the artifact your currently working on. If you click on the progress bar, it will link the item in chat, that way you don't have to go digging through a loot addon or wowhead for the link.

type /starch to toggle the window.
v1.2b - Re-released v1.2, stMedia is back in the package, and hopefully keystones work properly (currently unable to test this)

v1.2 - 01/11/2011 -
Fixed issue with keystones (thanks vlacko)

v1.1 - 01/11/2011 -
Fixed solving issue
Reskinned (config option at the top of the lua file for those who want the old skin)

v1.0 - 12/24/2010 -
Release

Awesome addon, I love it, very helpful.

Are there any possibilities to change the font?

Edit: Nevermind, I got it.

then under 'stArchFrame:SetWidth(150)' near the bottom of the file, add this:
Code:
stArchFrame:SetScale(frameScale)
Set the 1 of 'frameScale' to whatever size you wish.

As for all of the other things that many other addons have such as the HUDs and minimap icons, I doubt I'll ever add these. I plan to keep this addon as minimal as possible while still being functional.

Also, the issue with the solving should be fixed in v1.1 (Uploaded yesterday)
Fantastic! Thank you so much. Appreciate your work. Keep it up!

This may already be here, but i cant find a way to increase the scale of it. I have my UI at the smallest possible and stArchaeologist is just hard to read. I dont really want to resize my ui every time i decide to go on a survey spree. Any hopes as to adding a scaling options?

Solving Issue

I just finished getting enough fragments to solve the puzzle for the Clockwork Gnome. However, the solve button will not work. It worked on a few other puzzles though. I'm thinking it might be due to the fact that the puzzle has 3 keyrings, but I only have 1 runestone. The solve button displays Solve (1/3) and does nothing when I click it. Had to solve through the default Archaeology window.

What do you mean by that?


Hmm that's a good idea, right now the tooltip is colored blue for rares, but the text would probably be good too.
When you double right click it casts Survey, similar to easy casting with FishingBuddy. =] it also pops up an indicator if you have it enabled that shows you a circle with the yardage in it and it turns green/yellow/red according to how far away you run. Here's a screenshot of Archy's windows: http://toxid-lotus.net/upload/WoWScr...611_162156.jpg

As you can see the fragment window is pretty obnoxious. It would be awesome if you could incorporate a second window like Archy's location window. It tells you where it is and what faction the digsite is and also it tells you how many digs you've made there.

I currently use both your addon and Archy. I'd love to be able to use just yours. I use the digsite window along with the double right click feature and the survey indicator on Archy.

Please, please, pleaseeeeeee take it further!

It would be awesome also if there were a way to make the black background[not the borders or anything else] a little transparent.

Saft,

This is hands down the nicest looking archaeology assistance addon. I would love to see you take this further and make it as good as Archy as far as features with this same basic look. It's gorgeous .

If I could suggest a small change, if you are currently on a rare make it change the text color of the type to Blue etc.
