i created a small application, which will help us create heatmaps of players among the galaxy.
It´s currently very basic - just displaying a list of all visited systems by real Players with the visit counter and Dates of first Player ever entering the System and the last entry.
I will be updating it with much more statistics, the first version is just to check out, if there is interest for such a tool. We could create 3D images of the galaxy and draw the heatmap there.
How it works:
Like the Slopey´s Market tool, it polls the log file and extracts the system you are in.
For me: i am lost somewhere in the Galaxy and i miss player interactions, chatter and interdictions. I want to go to places, where things are happening.
Download the application from https://github.com/filthz/EliteHeatM...p.rar?raw=true (Rightclick, Save as..) and extract
There is a config file "application.properties", you need to insert your path to the logfiles. Something like C:\\Games\\EDLaunch\\Products\\FORC-FDEV-D-1002\\Logs\\
If you are a windows user, start the tool with the supplied .bat file
Or you run it via "java -jar heatmap.jar" in the console.
The client has to remain running in the background while you play E.
Accessing the stats:
Very simple at the moment, but hopefully more to come if there is interest in the community
What do you think?
You can add notes to Systems, you visited now. In oder to do so, go to your commander dashboard and click on the little pen next to the clock.
There is a note overview added as well.
Increased hop history to 60 entries.
Heatmap added ;)
Major update incoming
It´s now possible to register a commander name on the Heatmap Page ( http://010102.de/register ). This will enable you to view your personal travel record for that commander. It is available only to you, as your own travel-track.
In order to use this functionality:
- you have to download the new client version from here https://github.com/filthz/EliteHeatM...p.jar?raw=true
- add the the name of the commander, you registered to the config file (application.config). An example config is shown below
The commander name is just an identifier - its up to you if you use your ingame nick or something else
If you dont want to use this just leave the commander setting empty (commander=)
