So i hotkeyed the buy and sell screens to the '7' and '8' number keys. I'm however not able to use those when docked to a station. Anyone have an idea how i use the screens when docked?
The cake is a lie!

1) Press "Y" to select the player ship.

2) Shift-C for the Command Console

3) Press "3" For Trade Menu

4) Choose Best Buy or Best Sell (near the bottom).

The hotkeys are unnecessary.

Is there a way to see best buys for all goods at one time, like in stantard buys locator, but for universe?
I mean, currently you select one type of good and receive sorted list like
Energy cells - some_station - some_sector - best price
Energy cells - some_other_station - some_other_sector - not so good price
and so on.
I want list like:
Energy cells - some_station - some_sector - best price
Meatsteaks - some_station - some_sector - best price
and so on, for every known good.
Or there is some built-in way to envoke standard locator from distant ship in distant sector and browse results?

No. Considering the number of wares and the number of stations buying or selling each one, that list would be unmanageable.

Yes, there are several ways.
  • If your personal ship has the Best Buys Locator (BBL) and/or Best Selling Price Locator (BSL) installed, you can choose one of your satellites in a remote sector (either from the Sector Map, or your Property List) and press 5 to summon the BSL or press 6 to summon the BBL for that sector.
  • You can choose any of your ships in a remote sector (either from the Sector Map, or your Property List) and press 5 to summon the BSL or press 6 to summon the BBL for that sector -- provided the remote ship has the BBL and/or BSL installed (in which case, it doesn't matter if BSL/BBL is installed on your personal ship).

I am unable to download either of the SPKs, recieving 403 - Forbidden error message, while the zip download gives me an error inside Chrome, "net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND". Would the OP consider offering a mirror download site, and/or could someone provide me with a private link to follow via PM?

Thankyou in advance for the assistance!

This is an excellent script, I ve got so used to it being part of my game I don't think I could play X without it.

I would like to make a couple of suggestions:

1 - When invoking the script from a specific ship command command console, whether it is the player ship or a remote one, it would be speedier to not have to select the ship again from the subsequent menu after having chosen a station.
Choosing any ship after the item search is very useful , but it could still be done by starting the command via the shortcut.


2 - It would be nice if the player could add/remove Favourite Items to the main selection screen. Like another entry after:


Main
...
...
...
Shipwares
...
...
...
Ship Objiects
...
...
...
Misc Wares
...
...
...
Favourite Wares add - remove
...
...
...

It would make the selecting of the most traded wares more accessible.


I hope you don't mind me making the suggestions.

I do thank you for making the script, it has surely saved me countless hours in my tradings.

I am wondering why this feature isn't part of vanilla TC, or at least signed as mod. Seems quite essential to me.

I do not know why that is but I reckon it is not that the files are missing or the link is broken as I have no problem downloading them.

If it is ok with the forum rules and/or the author of the script I do not mind uploading them to some host like mediafire or something like it. I do not want to do it until I have permission to do so, the files are not mine.
