I’m bored of looking for hours fuel or mysterious containers or cargo drones, blablabla, when I’m flying in open space.
But I’m far too lazy to takes notes on a paper and then search on which paper is what i’m looking for.
So, as a Dev, I’ll make for myself a tool (android and/or windows app) for this. Well that kind of tool is quite easy to make.
BUT, I’m super lazy. I looked into SC’s datas, but everything is “.pak” which mean that I can’t find the maps and need to screenshot absolutely all of them + clear them with 'toshop.
Then I thought “Hey, you know you don’t want to screenshot every single mini-map in the game. So, what if you submit your app to the community and ask them to take those screenshots and clear them for you ?”
And then I thought “Hey but if you ask them for screenshots, why not also make it entirely updated by the community so you won’t have to submit a new app when new maps/loots/blabla comes out ?”
In short, what is it ?
Tons of data with a view similar to this picture (data absolutely random) , but inside an android app and with some tools to search and maintain it.
Main features :
- Global view of all maps (Similar to what you can find here) :
Search for a map and open the detailed map with the exact location of everything in this map
Filters for [Drones/Minerals/…]
Import/Export data from/to a file
Secondary features (Read here “If I’m motivated”) :
Search maps by data [Drones/Minerals/…]
Search for the nearest map with [Drones/Minerals/…]
List of what [loot_name] can give a [Pirate/Mineral/Transport/…] in [map_name]
The full path of transports ships (instead of just their spawn location)
That’s it I guess.
You want my dream tool ? Help me by giving me some data/maps screenshot.
If nobody help or want it, I’ll just make something for my personal use without unnecessary features.
I won’t work full time on it, so it’ll take around a week to make (it’s not hard at all to make. The biggest thing is the UI design).
