  • 15) I was thinking about how I would like to take a collection of systems with inhabited planets and routes between them and make everything else invisible so I could get some nice map exports and good images and so on. I think everything (or at lea…

  • Long time getting back to this, but I'll look at that script. I'd may also want a script like that which respects political boundaries as those would potentially limit or prohibit trade. I'm not a perl pro, but I did overhaul a bunch of perl used …
  • 12) I way to show the 'goldilocks' zone for a system. Why? Well, if I want to know where to insert a body so that I can reasonably expect a hospitable result, being able to see the band of orbital distances that I can locate it at. 13) Would be nic…

  • Sounds like something for the scripting interface.
  • The usual debugging method would be MsgBox here, there and everywhere to see what you have to work with and might give you and idea where the problem lies. That doesn't mean you'll get enough to fix it, but you might.
  • 11) I would really like a preference to be able to set text sizes in the system viewer. On my 30" 1920x1200 screen, the font looks like what I'd call 4-6 point if I saw it in my code editor and it's just not readable without a magnifying glass. If I…

  • Route distance seems to be a property of an endpoint or both. You set route visibility on the endpoints. I'm not clear if the software takes the lowest visibility specified there or an average or the highest, but you can specify it on the endpoint b…
  • I didn't see anything about relative velocity. You could add a custom field I suppose but you'd have to create the data yourself and it wouldn't be actively doing anything. (unless I missed something poking around the data) You indicated you were i…
  • 8) I noticed that the Sector Report, when it reports the details of a Megastructure, is pretty sparse. Particularly, it fails to report population. I'm assuming that population still counts in the population total collected for the sector, but I hav…

  • I've had issues with them. That's hardly conclusive evidence but I tend to agree there are some issues.
  • https://sqlitebrowser.org/ That's a nice free GUI browser for SQLite and I've found it quite useful (command line rocks, but it's nice to just have a GUI at times).
  • Another option if you want it more visible at a distance: You can use colour coded spheres of control by faction. What I'm doing in my current map is not that (I'm using differing size and colour of spheres of control to denote the relative import…
  • Here's a second unrelated bug report (and this one I'm certain of), though it is entirely trivial: When I use the left pane (system display) and click and select Properties (for a planet), the first tab on that dialog says Planet/Moon (just to be c…
  • I thought of another: 7) to have a filter (check/uncheck) to hide/unhide spheres of influence
  • Found in the help where it lists the various queryable fields. I guess that covers the field names. One thing you could mention in the examples section is that the database field names may differ from what is shown in the system data slightly (ex …
  • Fiddling around further, I see that it is 'spectral' in the db rather than as the label in the system description. I suppose I can alleviate any questions about what the data base columns are by simply downloading SQLite and looking at the schema -…
  • Found the help and the examples, but no example of a two word field and how to make that queryable.... Case in point: I'd like to search for all the G type stars in my subsector (I have the subsector filtered to be the only visible one). Whatever …
  • I meant to search more columns/fields than the limited set visible as columns in the search dialogue... vs. tables... I have no idea what the background schema looks like... I just want to search for strings throughout the full range of fields the d…
  • I think I saw that exception (I've been generating systems). I may try this - was running 3.01d, now 3.01e (have to see if I get it there, if so I will also try this f2 variation).
  • Ran the auto updater and it brought me up to 3.01e.
  • Well, in one sense, I agree. You would not fly that route since orbital mechanics would dictate otherwise (esp if it went through the sun at the moment). What it would show though is the relationship between populated bodies and perhaps which tra…
  • I develop software for a living. I'd love to report them if I could reliably duplicate them and file a good bug report. One example was clicking on the search in AS3 and I got dialogs galore and a program crash. But I'm not sure of what the preco…
  • Thanks, I'd pulled those just today, but didn't realize (hadn't had time to open them up yet) that they covered FWE as well as FM. That looked like some really good stuff. To the original question, the arrows in FWE worked perfectly for me shifti…
  • Thanks, I'll give that a try. I just found FWE's 'generate land + water' to recreate the world, although I'm not sure it would respect AS3 database settings for how much water was on the world if I did that. If FWE has its own manual, I haven'…
  • As this is a route-related thread and also asks about capabilities, I have a question: I'm doing a fair bit of in-system activity. Is it possible for AS to allow the creation of and perhaps display in-system trade routes? Obviously the script …
  • For most FPSes (the other community-driven environment I can think of), the community is built up by a few crazy people undertaking a lot of pain to find out a lot of undocumented stuff (and pestering the developers they can identify for data) and c…
  • Just one comment: I'm not sure that this isn't more generally useful than people think. I know I would like the ability to export a list of trade routes by system.
