Database from in game..

Recommended Posts

Instead of alt-tabbing from game to browser, I think it would be handy if we could go to a terminal and see the net-7 database.....

 

Just a thought...

It would be wonderful if some sort of functionality there was possible.  However if I recall from back in the beginning at westwood, the Browser in game was very limited and cannot support a lot of the scripting and such that the database we have on the website would require.  Though I am not certain what the EMU crew may have done to improve that over their time playing with it.

 

However I do think a basic item lookup and perhaps the components for the build would be huge.. I always thought the terminals in stations should do more.

This suggestion has been on our "List" for a while now, and Liucee is correct that we are somewhat limited on what we can do with the ingame browser.

To put this in perspective, the in-game browser is the equivalent of IE 4.0 :)

 

It doesn't support a lot of new / modern web features. If you try to load them, it will just display a blank page because it can't render it.
