Release Trade Computer Extension Mk.II

Thanks for your report, it has to do with expired missions you had.
There was some recent changes at the v1.8.4 Mission database, which has effects to some parts of the mission controller internally.
That's why the beta release is in place. You found an error and reported it. Great job and thank you for your help!
The release above will fix your issue.
IT WORKS! thx =-)
 
Version [1.8.4.0] released
Changelog (incl. all beta's):
  • Added the new automatic EDDB-Relay update feature. It updates the databases 'on-the-fly' when leaving the selected sphere of trade stations and after launching TCE automatically. The Event Reporter informs you about an update. Only available when selecting the automatic database update option at the Extension tab of the Launcher.
  • Added a complete rework of the EDDB-Relay interface, making it simpler and less confusing at the Extension tab of the Launcher.
  • Added the Trade Range selection to the EDDB-Relay menu. The Trade Range can't be larger than the half of the EDDB-Relay station range, if the EDDB-Relay Service is active.
  • Added the EDDB-Relay controls to the Online tab of the Options panel. So a restart of TCE is no longer necessary to change the parameters.
  • Added a new feature for explorers, when an import of a Road 2 Riches export file is made, the recommended planets to scan are added to the note section upon arrival at the star system. So check the Note button after entering a star system on explorations.
  • Added the remaining fuel indicator also to the text-based UI.
  • Added a Data Age column to the result list of found trade station at the 'Find Market' function of the Trade Overview panel.
  • Added a hint if TCE was blocked by a firewall or anti-virus app to the Login screen after trying to login.
  • Added new phrases to the language database requiring translation. Check the notes below.
  • Added an updated EDDB reference trade market database for EDDB-Relay.
  • Added a further big performance increase of EDDB-Relay Service.
  • Added a warning message to the Event Reporter, which informs the player, when leaving the known trade station sphere created by EDDB-Relay.
  • Added a partial rework of the Logbook and Bookmark database.
  • Added the number of visits to the Star System database.
  • Upgraded the Exploration database to store more informations about bodies to scan from the Road 2 Riches export file.
  • Removed the Commodity Prices database, it's now included into the Registered Market database saving 50% space and time.
  • Fixed some spelling issue of station names at the Unregistered Market database.
  • Fixed an issue in updating newly added star systems by EDDB-Relay.
  • Fixed a missing entry of the in game market id when adding a new trade market to the database.
  • Fixed an error when selecting a nav route in game and a star system on route is unknown to TCE.
  • Fixed an issue with lower resolutions than full HD, where the icons of the icon-based UI won't resize accordingly with the UI.
  • Fixed an issue with the mission tracking system for trade markets, because TCE no longer identifing markets by an internal ID.
  • Fixed an issue with the player.data file, which was sometimes not properly updated.
  • Fixed an issue with containing visited stations in an EDDB-Relay update.
  • Fixed an issue with the stored type update of a market when opening the Carrier Mannagement menu before the appoaching of a station.
  • Fixed an issue when changing the size of the Navigation panel, that the market details of the Trade Station tab become unordered.
  • Fixed an issue with the Note button of the Position display not working properly at the icon-based UI.
  • Fixed a rare error when adding a waypoint to the flightplan of an exploration at the Cartography panel.
  • Fixed some smaller display issues at the Position and Destination display at both UI styles.

Trying to use Route finder, but only get an empty screen.
Here are my filter option, what am I doing wrong?

Hi! I'm new to the forums, so this may simply be my inexperience, but I have been unable to figure out the "Location" and "Exploration" notes tab, nor find anything about how to use them beyond the wiki page. Is there a way to search this thread specifically on the forums which I missed?
The systems and trade market notes tab I was able to add entries to, but when I try similar things in the location tab such as planets, surface settlements, or POIs, nothing shows up in the search results. Could anyone provide guidance here, please?

I also believe I've found a non-fatal bug with the notes panel. If the notes panel is open when I press the show/hide GUI button, the notes panel will be effectively disabled until I restart TCE. This is not the case with any other tested panel, such as missions, shopping cart, etc. Supporting video (media link doesn't seem to work quite right)
Looks like the error report files are too big for the forum, so not sure the best way to upload those.

I think you need to have a location or exploration first. So for me, I see the following because I actually have an exploration route that includes the system I am currently in, so it is listed in the notes section. I would imagine the same is for locations. Never used it, but I suspect that when you find out how to add a location, it will then be visible in the notes.

[Edit] Looking more, you have to add Locations manually (see Database Panels), so you can add location on a planet for example. If you add a location, then it should appear in the Notes panel as well.

In the launcher there is a bug report button. You can attach files to send to Eventure with a description of how to replicate as this is probably not a DB issue.

Hi E,

I updated to 1843, but I still have the issue where I click on manual destination in the main UI, and the nav panel opens, but the "market places", "locations" show nothing. When I click on the "star systems", it lists the systems, and the stations are shown for that system. I can set a station as a destination just fine.
Also the "system:Station" text in the main UI for your location and destination are still tiny.
I will send the 7z and post a short vid link so you can see what I'm seeing.

There is a bug in the filter settings of the Navigation panel. Clear the filter and stations are back.
Next update will bring a fix for that issue.
 
One question, on the Route Planner markets list, the efficiency HIGH, MED & LOW. Is the default ordering by the text, or by the value of the potential trade? Reason I ask is because I would have thought the Auto Destination trade location (highest trade value from current location) would be the first recommended location in the trade markets list, but it is not.

The efficiency shows you, how good profits can be made at a station. TCE rates every trade station in database by how much rebate is given on a commodity, which you can buy and how much profit can be gained on a commodity, which you can sell at a station.

Combining these two values gives an efficiency rating for the station. A value higher than 1500 CR. is rated as HIGH, a value lower than 750 CR. is rated as LOW, in between is rated MED.

So it was sorted not by text, but by value, therefore the first station listed has the highest efficiency of all stations in your database. Auto-Destination checking only the best profit that can be made from your current station.

Maybe i can slightly rework the list to have more room showing the rating as a value, instead of text.

As a side note, some may be confused by the distance indicator shown for a listed station. If you didn't have added a station to the register, the distance shown is the range between your current location and the station at the list. After you have added a station to the register, the distance shown is the range between the last registered station and the station at the list.
