Love the ad-dons you have created all of them are great. I have a simple (hope lol) question. Is it possible to add things like Blood of Heroes to one of the Cartographer ad-dons like mining etc. I don't really think its required to reinvent the wheel for one or two items. The only ones I can think of are Blood of Heroes and possibly the crystals/Un'goro Soil in Un'goro (that might be already implemented haven't tried or checked it? Someone suggested treasure to me but I am not sure how important that really is as they don't always seem to spawn in the same places like Blood of Heroes etc does.
PS: Just ignore this post if you think this is unneeded feature or not worth programing :-)
One thing I noticed, and this is something that I do not like:
When I am approaching a node, Carto removes the resource icon on the minimap as soon as I get within a certain distance from the node so the golden dot can be seen. However, other icons (that may overlap) are not removed. This is very annoying when there is a Mountain Silversage very close to a mineral vein as the Mountain Silversage icon fills the purple cicle, and I can't see the golden dot. Would it be possible to fade out all icons on the minimap - both mineral and herbal icons - within a certain radius from the player?
since boss names of bosses of normal instances seem to move to babble-boss it should be clear that missing translations will cause cartographer to bug on most localisations because of missing translations because babble is working in strict mode.

I use the german client, and i get an error at startup:

I'm using the carto version from wowinterface.com
Also Cartographer_import doesnt import my gatherer data, although it tells me: "Done importing notes". cartographer_herbalism.lua is still empty.
This is a bad example. If your character does not have herbalism, the herbalism addon will never even be loaded at all, much less "show herbalism notes".
Okay, then it's annoying having 20 herb notes, a rare spawn note, and any personal notes I may have all showing at once. My point was that the minimap doesn't need to show every single note all the time. Especially in indoor areas like caves or instances, where the note icons are huge compared to the scale of the minimap picture. It would be nice to be able to filter what's shown on the minimap -- especially on a character with both herbalism and mining, as one of my alts does. Probably the only things that need to be shown on the minimap at all are notes for what I currently have an active tracking skill for.
thanx for the new "shiny" icons in herba.
but they look horendous. i copied the ones in ct_mapmod -> way better :)
The new shiny ones are much better then the old ones... but after that reply, I tried the CT_MapMod Icons too. They are a bit small, so I set Icon Size to 130% ... I think they are the best of them now.
