1. the updater is the easiest way to find and update your ace mods. i am surprised you haven't heard of it. it's been out for a long while now. you can find it here: http://www.wowace.com/wiki/WowAceUpdater
2. as for the off site link i would personally not use a un-official site to update any ace mods that is where most of account security issues pop up from.
Just wonding what Cartographer_Date actually is. I haven't used Cartographer in a while and I have been having problems getting the Cartographer_Mining.lua and Cartographer_Herbalism.lua working properly?
Is there a new thread anywhere with updated databases?
Also, does Cartographer still show the mini map node icons, where one should be? None of that is working for me.
well from the "research" that i conducted this is what i got:
first it is called Cartographer Data. It's a Herbalism, Mining and Treasure data ripped from Wowhead updated daily.
but the thing is there is no page for Carto Data and the only way you can get it is from the files page or through the updater
