great then i won't be puting work into that then
1) Such an option about suppressing dialogs will make it, not ETA though.Rommel wrote:So I was doing an update last night and a couple resources were already listed in the database by the time I got to uploading box 1&2 and I got popup's letting me know. Then there was a connection issue and I had to start the 1&2 upload again and I got popup after popup after popup.
Could a button to suppress further popups about resources already in the database for that upload session be created or an option box for the isdroid menu to suppress that one popup be created?
On the current resources tab nothing should ever show for space resources because they are always the same, so could their stats always be shown. Technically they are always a current spawn
The only other thing on this I could say is if they are added to always show could the details tab say what system they can be found in?
Yeah, that sounds like a better option.Zimoon wrote:2) Yes, of course, not the next version though. Probably it would be better always having them as available at this site though, right. I will PM Sobuno and see to it he adds them permanently to the database, that would be better.
I missed this point the last time, good idea, I will look into itRommel wrote:... The only other thing on <space resources> I could say is if they are added to always show could the details tab say what system they can be found in?
OK, another Codoan Copper. Probably SWGCraft, but I will have a look when I come home.Tharek Tolemac wrote:http://www.swgcraft.co.uk/forums/viewto ... f=2&t=1133
I think the problem isnt in SWGAide, but swgcraft.
Responses in red. I am happy you start out using the tool and I appreciate feedback and reports on things that bothers you.Aesop wrote:Hehe, Hi guys
I'm really trying to get this working
First, my question, then the previous question and answers follow, for continuity:
Ok, I've purchased a resource deed. I'll run a droid to obtain the current resources for a planet.
Then I will /savemail
Then I'll write it to res.txt
I think I understand I then "open res.text" in the drop down menu.
Nono, you go into game and open the notes file with the command "note res". The process is thoroughly describes in the help text for the ISDroid panel, browse to that panel and hit F1 and off you go, happy reading
At this point I can "change the saved res.txt" by inputing the resource stats in the format of:
Now, if there are no stats in certain areas, do I add a 0 there?
Such as Polymer
Or just input the available stats because swgAid knows what the heck it's doing? (smile)
First, read the help text I mentioned. No, you will not type the stats that are not present. You rexample would just read
and you can use any of these symbols as delimiters as you please: ,. ;:
However this is done, I then return to the ISDroid panel and "Save changes to res.txt"
When done in-game you close the in-game notepad window, which auto-saves the file, and you switch back to SWGAide
That about right?
Should I be out with another character, without a resource deed, sampling.
Is there a way to use swgcraft aid to input sampled resources, or is this way "site only"? Currently no, I plan to add such features. For example creature samplers want it, and for single resource submissions.
If I can "edit" the res.txt as above and also type in a "name" of resource that is missing, it looks like it doesn't matter where in res.txt I put it? As long as it is under the right planet. You must use ISDroids and do not quit SWGAide in between. SWGAide keeps track of planet and stuff. There are two formats for the file, described in the help text, the continuous is best when you use the 30k kit.
I think I saw somewhere about right clicking a resource in your inventory..or is the the other swg thingie V1.8?
Hmm, here I am lost and don't know what you refer to. Let's say you start out slowly with just one droid and do that and I think it will all clear up. However, be very cautious with that 30k deed, do not do anything such as type chatting or so when you are at the page where you can read the stats. I have the two windows, the deed and the notepad, side by side and I am very cautios about what I do with the mouse clicks. I rather back-out at the deed with the keyboard ESCape button.
Ok, that's about it.
NP, better safe than sorry
I've heard (read) of using a resource crate to assign stats when doing things this way, but do not have a rescourse crate
It appears that after recieving the no-stat-data from the ISD there is no way to manually input additional data?
In-game at the in-game notepad, open with /note res
It is better to submit "blank resources" than not, it is always good to know they exist than not. If you don't have the 30k kit, manually sample and read the stats in your inventory.
I'm trying to figure out a way to update the site, keep track of current resources privately(hard copy of submitted data) and publicly(on the site), and do this all in a timely and easy manner(yea, Im lazy, so what )
I feel I'm probably missing something along the way.
This will be added to SWGAide over time. Personal inventory is next thing after the upcoming version that is about in a few days.
After you have submitted the information to the site you can then hit the "Write to "res.txt" button", Alt-Tab back to the game and type /no res and enter stats as you find them, when done you Alt-Tab back to SWGAIDE and hit the "Submit "res.txt" button and its all updated.
I would however recommend trying to get a 30k Resource Crate to make your life a lot easier.
Aesop, when you are at the ISDroid panel in SWGAide, please hit F1 to bring up the help text. It is quite extensive.
In general, to supply stats you must always hit the button "Write to res.txt" which writes a notes files which you can open in-game as Monty told you. Fill in the stats you have at hand, or none if you have no stats. Submit. It is better to know about a resource in spawn than not, so don't wait to get the stats another day.
No, there is no way to manually upload stats using SWGAide, not yet. What you can do is to use the text input field at the bottom of the SWGCraft web page named Current Resources for the planet. The format of the input must be
If resources are already in the database they will be updated with stats by this.
Zimoon answered this:
How do you view the stats on the resources without using the deed? I don't want to waste it on junk. Thanks
You double click the "deed" and the first screen read Inorganic and Organics and you choose one of them. Next screen is the sub-classes of the one you choose, so in fact you unfold the tree of resource classes until you finally read resource names of a specific resource class.
The only exception, where you don't read names of resources, are Space Resources and recycled resource classes, that is since they don't have unique names.
The final screen before realizing a resource into your inventory reads the stats of the resource. So, either double click a name, or the resource class for recycled or space resource classes, and you will read the stats.
At that point, be cautious. I managed to claim some lousy wood by responding to a type chat, for some reason the ENTER went into the resource stats screen. I was lucky and a friendly CSR (now GM) replaced the 30k crate of wood with a new deed. Now I use the ESCape key at the keyboard not to accidentially click the OK button.
