First contact made

Friday 6th January, 2017 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 2 comments ·
During the past day or two, an alien space craft made first contact. This happened when the commander was jumping between two stars with some unknown artifacts aboard. The craft then seems to scan you for something, after-which it flies away. The ship looks similar to that of crashed ones already found, but in much better state. Unfortunately I am not in a position to cover the story directly (as im around 22,000ly from the human populated area). Id thought ill tell you about it, as I felt you would be interested (if you didnt already know).

The abandoned site

Tuesday 22nd November, 2016 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 3 comments ·
A few days ago, a fellow commander found a outpost that was abandoned. The site can be found at WREDGUIA JC-K c22-8, 6A, Coordinates: -51.69 -144.00.

The site has a few materials, a data point and 5 com-links. After scanning the com-links, you told about the last moments on-board the outpost. I have no idea if this connected to alien crash sites - it could be nothing to do with it. However its still quite an interesting place to visit. I have created a video on the outpost;

Planetary base support added

Sunday 20th November, 2016 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 0 comments ·
During the past week or so, you may of seen that I have been working on the Elite Dangerous site. One of the objectives was to reduce the database size as it grew rather big. I completed the work a few days ago, and for the time being the database is much smaller. This did require me to restart the ED database but allowed me to clear out some cobwebs.

But, that wasnt the only thing I was working on. I wanted to add support for planetary bases (the stations on planets, found in Horizons). This wasnt a simple task of adding a few lines of code. Many sections such as the trade-helper, equipment/ship searches required some big changes to their code to support planetary bases. You will now find a series of checkboxes at the top of the page, which you can toggle the various station types; rather than the single pull-down in the past. You will find these checkboxes on the Trade helper Mk1/2/3/Best and equipment/armour/ship searches.

So now support for planetary bases should be completed. If you notice any problems, please let me know. thanks.
