Tyvm is this something new not long back to game never noticed this feature before
It's there since day one, at least at the Navigation panel.

@ALL:

They will be fixed with the next update.

Either download the version above, install and transfer your old database, or use the auto-update function of the launcher.
Click the 'new version' notice at the bottom of the launcher.

If you find an error, please report and use the Report a Bug button at the launcher and don't forget to copy the error details and ErrorReportFile.7z archive.

I like to remind any user, who want's to use TCE in french, spanish or russian to help in translating the

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.

Thanks, that does make sense.

I don't think that was clear, but sort of makes sense because the markets list changes every time you add a market to the register, so it is clearly related to something that is changing.
 
Another question. On the Missions panel, there is a star and a loud hailer which I have seen yellow and red. What do these mean?

The star represent the gained reputation from the mission and the speaker is your influence (low = red to high = green).
