    EDDiscovery - Journals, Exploration, Trading, Voice Recognition/Speech, Star Maps

    ED Discovery is a Windows Application which assists you in piloting in the Elite Dangerous universe. Started by Commander Finwen, it has been greatly expanded in the last year by a team of programmers who have added many features. Originally only a explorers tool, since Elite 2.2 and journals it has many more features which warrant a post in this section because its useful for all commanders, whatever your profession!

    Note Mac support is now suspended and the Mac version on Github is out of date.

    See our wiki with a full help guide. Talk to us and other users directly using Discord.

    See release history for detailed information on EDD history.

    Major Features:

    *History of your journey through Elite
    *Speech output - make your computer speak as you scan, fight, dock, land. Add NPC voices.
    *Free Voice Control - control Elite using your microphone! Install the FVC action pack, make sure you have key bindings set in elite for items you wish to voice control, and talk away! Over 140+ voice commands built in!
    *30+ panels of information on combat, trading, exploration, star data, ship loadout
    *Expedition, Exploration and Route Planning
    *2D and 3D Maps
    *Integration with EDSM, EGO, Inara, FD CAPI, Corolis, ED Shipyard

    Features:

    EDD supports add on packs that can be installed individually and which expand ED Discovery. The add on packs themselves are customisable as they are written in a simple programming language.

    The main pack is the voice pack, which reads out the journal entries as they happen in your chosen windows text to speech voice. Voice recognition pack is available, as above. Customisable keyboard shortcuts packs are also available if you wish to use tools such as voice attack to control ED. Other packs are available, check your in program add-on menu.

    EDD now also supported 3rd party DLL integration for the adventurous programmers out there.

    ED Discovery look is fully customisable, you choose the layout, you choose the colours. We include some default themes to get you going, the one shown here is Elite Veranda.

    The User Interface featuring multiple information tabs, multiple panels per tab:



    Customisable Pop outs, both transparent (so you can place them over ED and have them in game) and non transparent, covering information that you need for exploration:



    Trading:



    And for engineering/exploring:



    ED Discovery features a 3d star map of commanders visited systems, courtesy of EDSM. You can pan and zoom, click, see information on your trip and on each star:



    ED Discovery integrates with EDSM, EDDN, Elite Galaxy Online, EDDB, Inara. It can send your journey to EDSM and retrieve information from EDSM from your account. It can send your information (scans etc) to EDDN for upload to the tools which use this. It will update Inara on your current state of play. It will inform EGO about your amazing discoveries.

    Over 30+ panels of data is available, giving you data on your ships, their loadouts, your commodities and materials. It has panels to allow you to plan an expedition, plan a exploration star set, plan a route through the galaxy.

    It has panels which can be transparent and can be overlayed on top of your Elite Dangerous Borderless window to provide HUD like features.

    A screenshot converter allows you to convert those pesky BMPs from ED or steam into a PNG and give them a decent name. Route planners allow you to plan your trip. Your history can be filtered for view, individually on each tab/pop out, showing only the events you want to see or using a advanced filter to remove events on a much more individual basis (npc chatter for instance).

    ED Discovery can be downloaded from here. We support both stable builds, and beta builds, each individually installable. We also support portable builds where you can place the data where you want it.

    This is an free open source project, you can inspect the code at github. No code is hidden. All is available for you to build or inspect.. We welcome contributions to the code base and user reports of any issues, either at our discord or via Github issues.

    Awesome work guys ... !!

    Great software team! One question I have is - is it possible to customise the voice add-on to tell me when I am below 25% fuel? in your answer, please assume I have the technogical literacy of a 10 year old

    So, at the moment, we don't know the particulars of your ship.. what its fuel tank size is..

    the FSD program does this:

    NAME FSDResponse

    Set speech = %expand(say_FSDJump)
    If EventClass_FuelLevel <= 4
    Set speech += %expand(say_FuelWarning)
    Say %(speech)

    4 tons or less it warns you.

    You could change this, Add-Ons, Edit Add-Ons, select voice pack (bottom left), find the FSDJump entry, click on Program (P).. you can edit the entry

    Cmdr. Finwen is working on bringing in the Frontier API to give full ship details to us, so later we will know the fuel tank size of your ship, and can set this one directly. That's planned for a few versions time.

    If it goes as plan we can do this in EDD 7.0

    Thanks for you answers Finwen and Robbyp.

    So if I have a 32tonne fuel tank then I change it to If EventClass_FuelLevel <= 8 to have it warn me at 25%?

    I'm on my way to Begle Point so this well help me when inevitably my mind wanders. The only thing worse than having to call the Fuel Rats is being a Fuel Rat and having to call the Fuel Rats.

    Yes, exactly.

    This is one of the reasons i put a programming language in there, instead of just hardcoding it, because I knew with the kind of guys who played Elite that they would want to customise it to their taste..

    Feel free to modify, and if you have good mods please share!

    Love this tool and have knocked up a Google Sheet doc that does further analysis of the data - you need to export your exploration data first and then import in - full instructions on the sheet. Be great to see some of this analysis incorporated into future releases!

    I've just found my first Earth Like World and EDDiscovery states that it has no atmosphere, which it obviously does.

    will check this out. Thanks for the journal record.

    Amusingly, for the redacted system ;-) we have an empty atmosphere but with a type. Will need to check

    We dont process type, i think this is a Frontier wierd one.. their population of fields is a little haphazard at best. we will discuss

    thanks for the post ;-)

    I think these are saved on the server, out of reach of us. There is no Journal or Frontier API interface I know how to get hold of them. Sorry.
