TravelMate updated

16 posts in this topic

Hey all.
Its amazing to be back in game, big thanks to all the folks that are making this happen. Its a real pleasure!

So, Im out jetting around, taking in the sights and sounds.. and.. Its been long enough I forgot my way around! That gave me a chuckle :)
So I was looking at some links in another thread and came across a site with an old app I used to use to plot destination courses, TravelMate.
The maps part of it never worked that I remember, but the point-to-point plotting did, so I downloaded it and voila!, Less guess work for traveling until I knew the neighborhood again!

Of course, it didnt have the new areas I was starting hear about and run across, so I looked into it and the original author was wise and made it up-datable.
So, I updated it :)

Some of the BBW and Pirate/RD Faction stuff was there but initially disabled.
I have added EVERYTHING, including zones not yet implemented, but that show up on the Net-7.org maps.
Including:
The new classes as well as the Red Dragon faction.
The new class starting sectors: Equatorial Earth, Ganymede and Mars Gamma.
Ardus, Unknown Galaxy, Moto, der Todesangel
- Altair System-, Altair III, Nostrand Vor, Nostrand Vor Planet
- Castor System-, Ishuan, Ishuan Gas Giant, Menorb
- Proxima System -, Adriel Prime, Loch Mar, Margesi
Ceres/Thule, Mercury, Neptune, Pluto and Charon, Uranus, Venus
Blackbeards Wake, Paramis, Canopus
and all related stations.

I didnt have the authors approval, but hey, I figure rkzad(@hotmail.com) wouldn't mind to much, or he would have already done it!
Tho I have to say, if the author wanted to toss me the build files, I'd gladly take the project on and build upon it :)

:: Instructions to install and update::

-Download the original from: http://www.enbx.com/downloads/travelmate1103.zip
-Unzip and install the package.
-Rename the file: [b]EnBTravelMate.ini[/b] to say something like EnBTravelMate.ini.bak if you want.
-Get the updated .ini file attached to this post and place it in the directory that EnBTravelMate.exe is installed into, effectively replacing the renamed file.

If you receive an error that says something like:
"Whoops! Please report your class, source, and destination to <emailaddress>"
Instead please report it here in-thread and Ill fix it.


Should be good to go! Enjoy the app that rkzad wrote for you.

Ok, I attached the file locally, not sure whats up with public permissions at Google Docs.
There should be a link at the bottom of the original post now.

So any chance of getting the map portion to work? Would be cool if it did.

One small change necessary. The Moto gates are restricted and should not be included in default route calculations. Is it possible to change it so you have to turn on an option to use it. If not then just make it a dead-end since travel thru is not possible.

How do we go about adding maps, seems to go check a website but no maps to view

If we can add maps to the folder, what format and size do they need to be? etc etc

I believe the original program linked to the http://mbt.ebportal.com/ website and matched up the sector maps. Unfortunately I don't think we have access to the original code to either edit the website link or see if there was a way to have it pull from a local image directory.

Using either a hex editor or a decompiler may give a programmer a shot...if they know what they are looking at.....but is it really needed? The updated ini gives the proper routes (ty to Kii and Maniac) and if you are unfamiliar with a sector you can access any map at [url="http://www.enbmaps.de."]http://www.enbmaps.de.[/url] Edited by Crichton

Trying to get used to this new forum software.  Using latest version of Chrome on Windows 10 but do not see file attached to original post.  All I see is " [attachment=824:EnBTravelMate.ini" not the actual downloadable file.  Am I missing something?

 

I am logged in by the way . . .
