I really appreciate your feedback. I have future plans of integrating Solvent with TomTom. If you have TomTom installed, which is optional, it will add additional features such as the ones you are talking about. If you do not have TomTom installed, Solvent will function normally without those extra features.

Nice features youve added in the latest release.

Would still like to see a feature for changing textures and height of the bars themself. Also, could be nice if it only shows digsites from the continent youre on.

Been thinking about the button i was talking about, about solving everything, instead of a button (wich imo would destroy the look of the addon after ive been testing it more thoroughly). You should just be able to click the bar and it solves the artifact and shift-click(?) to solve with keystones.

Other than that, im loving it

Excellent display addon, techno-geek! I'll be downloading and using this when I start my play session tonight. The only thing I can think of, suggestion-wise, is scaling the size of the window (if that's not already in).

Thank you for your work! I can't wait to give it a go tonight!

Something ive seen on other archeology addons are minimap arrows pointing towards digsites, i liked the idea but what i didnt like was that all 4 arrows were showing at the same time. A suggestion to this would be to instead of having all the arrows showing at once, maybe just have 1 arrow pointing towards the nearest digsite. (so you dont have to open the world map all the freakin' time )

As you mentioned in the upcoming changes:
"Add slash command to automatically solve everything that is possible to solve, no matter what it takes" instead of a slashcommand, maybe just a button that says "Solve", using all keystones available (or maybe hold down shift and click to solve with all keystones available, and when just clicking it solves without)

Other than that i think its already pretty close to perfect, low low memory usage, super simplistic design. Keep it up!
I am glad you are enjoying it. I was worried that I would be flamed by Archy users claiming that my mod had no point/purpose. I added a full suite of slash commands tonight that change various settings and they should persist. I also added your minimap arrow suggestion to my to do list. Thanks for your wonderful suggestion.

I apologize but there are no in game settings for this yet. This is my first addon and I am still learning things. If you have any requests and/or suggestions on what you would want to configure please let me know and I will get them in as soon as I can. So far I plan on allowing the configuration of the frame alpha, frame scale, and the font settings.
