On this page you will find all the programming projects I have written over the years.
While working on Mostly Deadly, I found I had the need for a utility that allowed me to look up details on planets while looking at the galactic map.
Firing up OOlite just to look at planets was a bit of a drag and checking out planet details, on different galaxies was not easy to do and interrupted my writing flow too much, so OOliteInfo was born.
Now re-written in Python and should be fully cross platform. Please report any bugs you may find:
Windows users will have to download Python 2.7, wxPython and NumPy.
You will also need to have Python, wxPython and NumPy installed. The following Links are what I used to develop, but you may have to download the 32 bit versions for your OS.
Python 2.7.2 64Bit – Windows 64 Bit
wxPython 1.6.1 – Windows 64 Bit
NumPy (Follow this link and download – numpy-MKL-1.6.1.win-amd64-py2.7.exe
32Bit Windows Links to follow.
Linux Instructions to follow
- Click to select Multiple planets for tagging.
- Search by name.
- Zoomable galaxy map with mouse wheel and buttons.
- Currently calculates jump distances as source spreadsheets are wrong. Will correct for v0.3
Previous Windows only release written in Visual Basic here:
Feature requests / Forthcoming Attractions.
- Add co-ordinates of planet clicked and current cursor position
- Make the political maps work. (Future release)
- Make planet finder not case sensitive and find across all galaxies
- Improve the found planet indicator.
- Zoomable map (Maybe, in the future.)
- Jump route plotter/planer. Click planet to planet.
- Filters, by planet type, government, etc.
Bugs / Required fixes
- Adjust display method to use layers for planets, jump routes, political maps, background grid?
- Species description can overflow box.
- About box messes up main display.
- Improve refresh.
