Tired of having to flip back and forth between the World Map and the Flight Map to find archaeology digs!?!
Homing Digeon provides a simple overlay to the Flight Map highlighting active dig sites and their closest flight points. With the lack of free-flight in Warlords of Draenor, Homing Digeon is invaluable for quick and efficient archaeological excavations!
As of v1.7, Homing Digeon has been updated to work with World of Warcraft client version 7.0.
Thanks to karlww on #wowuidev IRC for the name.
yeah i really wish someone would update this i still do archy sometimes and this made it so much easier
No update appears to be planned for the Dragonflight expansion, so unfortunately this will join other addons I've uninstalled per the reviewing I do on an expansion basis.
So long, birdie. ( -.-)7
Still love this addon. I have to get used to what and where to click on to get an accurate ant trail, but even then that just does not want to move to the next one I click on. I see it's been a while, can anyone update this pls?
Please update this for Shadowlands. It is SUPER handy to click on things and have an ant trail to follow. As of Shadowlands I can click on things once and see it properly but when I click on other tings, the ant trail does not update to it. I think the POI arrow on the minimap directs me in that direction. This is one of my go to addons.
Any update coming for BFA? As of it, Homing Digeon does not work. I find / found this one really handy because it guides you right to the fp near your selected quest no matter where you are. I will try changing the numbers in the .toc file. (my own saved file)
How do I activate it? I installed it and nothing happened. There is no overlay on the flight map.
It does not work in Broken Island with below lua error. Wow Client is koKR.
I use world flight map add-on, will Homing (Homing Digeon) work with it?
I've used (Homing Digeon) in the past when it worked and loved it but haven't for like a year for it didn't work for me. Now I've the new (worldflightmap) add-on and love not having a separate flight map from the world map and would love if they both work together.
I'll test it but even if it works there my be unseen problems that I can't see so I'll let you know.
EDIT: OK it does not work with (worldflightmap) add-on. But I also use the add-on (Archy) and realize with (Archy) and (worldflightmap) I do not need (Homing Digeon). For (worldflightmap) turns the world map into to the flight map and (Archy) puts the locations of dig sites on the world map. So at a flight master I see those dig sites.
BUT for those that do not use (Archy) but do use (worldflightmap) you may want to so if you can get (Homing Digeon) to work with it.
But thank you so much as your add-on is still a great add-on.
Homing Digeon should work with anything that interfaces with the "Taxi Map", since it hooks directly into that.
As you've stated in your explanation, worldflightmap replaces the Taxi Map with the World Map so Homing Digeon won't work with it.
As for broadening the scope of Homing Digeon - It's not my project (I've just kept it functioning for the last couple of expansions) so I think making such a call would really be up to the original author if they chose to do so.
For the near-term, I'll be making sure Homing Digeon continues to work with blizzard UI.
No longer works in 7.0, anyone able to fix it? My LUA skills are far too basic to work out what's wrong!
I'm poking around at this again. Will update when I can verify the broken isles are working properly
Just updated for 7.0 - Homing Digeon v1.7.0 - I have not been able to test with Broken Shores yet, so that may not function properly, but all of the old content should work just fine now.
There was as a texture bug in 6.1. I'm not sure what caused it precisely, some change on the client side, but I was able to figure out a solution. Should be working in the latest version of Homing Digeon (1.6.1)
thank you very much Vynn!
Is there going to be an update? I miss this addon!
Just pushed an update, it should be live any time now on the curse website.
with patch 6.1 things seem to be not quite working right though, you can see the dig sites on the flight path map, but they are not colored as to which is closest - but it still is very helpful!
There was a texture bug that had me stumped for a bit in 6.1 - latest version (1.6.1) should fix it. Please let me know if you're still experiencing issues after updating.
after 6.1 seems to be not working quite right...
