So, I haven't kept up to date and now I'm paying the price. From what I've read it looks like Cartographer 3.0 is the shiny new version of Cartographer, but I haven't updated in well... it was 2008 when I last had a chance to check anything out seriously.
Short and sweet. Cartographer is wiped from my system. I'm using the Curse client for d/l and install. BUT Curse lists 20+ Cartographer files, some of which don't look like they've been updated in some time.
What do I need to get Cartographer 3 up and running with something like the functionality that Cart 2 had? I used all of the old modules. Do they still work with Cart 3? Are they needed? Planning on updating Quest Helper afterwards, but what do I need aside from Cartographer 3 itself to get everything up to date and running "smoothly".
None of the old Cart2 modules will work with Cart3. If you want the same functionality, there are several standalone AddOns which provide it - Cromulent and HandyNotes (and its various plugins) are two that come to mind.
1) Delete all cartographer from your addons folder
2) Install Cart3 from CurseClient
-For Notes Install HandyNotes
-For Flight Masters - Install HandyNotes_FlightMaster
-For Vendors and POI's - Install HandyNotes_Vendors
-Look at the Rest of the HandyNotes_* Modules for more.
-For Herb/Mining/Treasure - Install GatherMate & _Data
-Cart3 does come with a way point arrow; however I like TomTom (from wowi)
-So far there has not yet been a reliably good quest dot or quest givers module made yet, tho there is a HandyNotes_Quest? module.
Thanks OrionShock. That helps a lot! Ihave a bunch of the HandyNotes mods installed now, though the "SpecialNPC's" mod seems to be throwing some errors. Anybody have similar issues with it? All the old Cart stuff is now gone, and Cart3 installed. I'll try the HandyNotes QuestGivers mod too. Thanks! And I'd forgoten about Gathermate. I'll retry that as well. Uninstalled it some time ago, and never updated. Appreciate the pointers folks!
