Hey CB.. did Blizz rip ya off or what?

Man... I get to lookin at the 3.3 patch notes about the MM features and the quest tracking features and I was like...mmm lots of addons like that... but the shrunken map feature.... wow they just took your idea flat out.

I'm here to the end man, love the addon. Any testing you need for 3.3 lemme know I'm happy to help.

Well, the carbonite map is still a million times better in my opinion

I just hope they integrate Blizard's quest database with Carbonite tracker. No more missing quests and such... (Also, completed quests option for Loremaster ! )

Yes, we plan to use whatever quest data we can get out of the game. Looks like Blizzard even added quest areas similar to ours. We may even be able to make the addon smaller by stripping out some of our quest data. We shall have to see how well their stuff works.

Yeah the more I looked at it the more I realized it might actually make it a bit easier on you guys. Regardless of their new quest system it certainly can lighten the load on your DB and at the same time allow you to utilize it in a positive fashion.

The get quest feature looks promising to. I think you guys could do some serious reverse quest tracking with this new feature beyond what blizz could ever do.

Their quest tracking still sucks major bone though. I'm looking forward to you guys dishing out some new features on this one.

I feel the same. I don't think I could play WoW without Carbonite, even with 3.3's new quest tracking.

Thanks Carb Devs!

Everyquest has that quest scanner, was checking it out. I know you can go in and set quests done with carbonite. Question is are ( prolly have and I havent seen it ) planning on making an import module to import into cabr what youve done. If not will you be planning to add an import module to import the data flagged from say Everyquest the addon.

Carbonite can already get the quest completion data from the server. We added that in 3.3 and 3.31 has an improved version of that feature.

Changes: 3.3

Added fetching of completed quests from server on login and adding them to quest history.

Changes: 3.31

Added "Remove All" and "Get Completed From Server" commands to quest history popup menu.
Added one time message for each character to get quest history. Removed auto fetching.
