I will happily help. Sounds like a nice project.
It can be set up to use a lot of memory which could impact other processes, but it doesn't have to be (and the next release will have additional options to reduce the memory footprint further if you're tight on resources).Last time I used EDDiscovery it would often crash and I'm pretty sure it slowed down my frame rate.
Thanks. I'll be participating in this for sure. An additional layer of gameplay while jumping between waypoints is certainly welcome.Open up EDDiscovery and click on the Add-ons menu. Select "manage add-ons". Scroll down the list and you'll see the "TGMS Bookmarks" plugin:
EDDiscovery isn't required for this. The key point is that you need a way to list the systems that you have scanned to the standards that the TGMS requires, and the bookmark plugin for EDDiscovery makes that convenient. You can also keep a list manually, use a spreadsheet, or use any number of applications that can read your current system from the journal file.Last time I used EDDiscovery it would often crash and I'm pretty sure it slowed down my frame rate. Since then I have been using the ED Market Connector to get info to EDSM and Inara with no problems.
I would like to get into the metallicity project and will try installing it again but if it hasn't been improved....
Nope! The EDDiscovery plugin lets you create a bookmark manually by hitting the 'scroll lock' key. So if you do scan the nearest gas giant, then you'll hit 'scroll lock' to make a bookmark. If you're buckyballing, you won't. That way the list will only contain systems that you've scanned out.Just to clarify, if you use EDdisco to automatically catalog your entries, you must check all F, G, K stars for any gas giants. If, for example, you need to buckeyball it you will jump into and out of systems while logging the star - but will miss any potential gas giants (implying the system does not have any but may actually have some).
