Reserved by MarCon Ind for further information Releases.

Be warned, if you don't like a colorfull menu,
you will Hate this. you have been warned.

MarCon Ind – Ship Onboard Computer System Interface :

The MarCon Ind – Ship Onboard Computer System Interface is not one script that performs one task, but rather it is a collection of utility scripts for performing a number of information gathering tasks and to perform various actions, all consolidated into one central menu.

The menu is divided in various sections (Divisions), with each division containing searches or actions relevant to it, each division heading is a link to an information page regarding available searches and actions with that division, these divisions include;

Recycling Division:

Recycle Ships Wares:
Recycle Ships wares allows you to remove installed equipment and onboard cargo from you ships docked at any of your Stations or carriers. This is useful for removing surplus items from recovered abandoned ships.

Search for Abandoned Ships:
Use this search to find abandoned ships anywhere in your satellite network. The search can be refined to only look in particular races sectors or only look for a particular class or type of ship.

Inventory Tracking Division:

Inventory Tracking System:
The Inventory Tracking System allows you to search all of your stations and/or ships for any wares you have at any of them. The search results display their location and the qty you have at each location including the total qty at all searched locations.

Bulk Asset Renaming:
This feature allows you to rename your assets in bulk rather than individually. You can perform this action on all station or all ships or a class or type thereof. Just enter the word or words you want to change and the word or words you want to change it to and all items meeting these criteria will have their name changed. A menu displaying any changes made will then be displayed.

Command Target:

This gives you some basic information about the ship that the menu is running on.

Fleet Management Division:

View My Ships:
Using this search you can find any of your ships and view their current location and action as well as how far away from you they are. As with most other searches that can be performed with this menu this search can be refined by ship class or type.

Ships Requiring Upgrades / Repairs:
If you have any ships that do not have max cargo bay, engine tunings, rudder optimisations or have hull or shield damage you can search for them here.

Ships Requiring Equipment / Supplies:
Any of your ships that are short of energy cells for jumping or do not have a full compliment of marines onboard can be searched for using this option.

Set or Change this Ships Homebase:
This allows you to set or change your current ships Homebase.

Set or Change Any Ships Homebase:
This allows you to set or change any of your ships Homebase including ships that normally can not have a Homebase set for them.

Clear Any Ships Homebase:
This will allow you to clear any of your ships homebases if they have one set.

View My Ships with a Homebase Set:
Selecting this option produces a list of all your ships that have a homebase set and what their homebase is set to and where it is.

View Ship Details:
This will display a menu with detailed information regarding your current ship. The information incudes shields, weapons, turret configuration, freight contents, marines onboard and a variety of other information.

View My Target Details:
This performs the same function as “View Ship Details” except that it displays the information for your currently targeted ship.

View Any Ship Details:
This performs the same function as “View Ship Details” except that it displays the information for any selected ship in your satellite network.

View Ship Availability:
This is a utility tool for the viewing of Shipyards and the availability of ships at shipyards. Also any ships that are available to the game can be set for sale at any shipyard or shipyards of your choice. The ship will then be available for purchase from these shipyards at their regular sale price.


Station Management Division:

View My Stations:
Using this search you can find any of your stations and view their location and production details as well as how far away from you they are. The results screen will display all stations meeting your search criteria. From here you can choose to view basic or advanced production and consumption details for these stations. As with most other searches that can be performed with this menu this search can be refined by station class or type.

Quick View Links:
Does the same as above but has some predefined presets for you convenience.

Station Credit Transfer:
This allows you to quickly transfer credits to or from your Stations in bulk. Credits can be transferred to or from multiple stations simultaneously. Set a minimum credit balance for a station to have in its account and then choose All, class or type. The resulting stations list can be tailored on the fly to add or remove stations or the credits transferred.

Satellite Surveillance Division:

Search for Race Ships:
You can now find other race ships that are in your satellite network. You have to ability to search by Race(s) and ship class or type, or a combo of these.

Search for Race Stations:
As with search race ships, you can now find other race stations that are in your satellite network. Basic Station details are available for these stations, including wares at station and their quantities. You have to ability to search by Race(s) and station class or type, or a combo of these.

Search for Locations of Asteroids Scanned:
This search gives you the ability to recall the location any yield information for any asteroid that you have previously scanned. The search can be filtered by sectors only belonging to particular races or to asteroids over a particular yield, or a combination of these.

Diplomacy Division:

Nho Diplomatic Relations Viewer:
View what the relations between particular Races are and what they think of each other. You need to select a minimum of 2 races from the races menu and then you can view their relations. 2 is the Minimum you can select but you can select 3, 4, 5 or all the way up to All. You can't select 1 because they wont tell you what they think of themselves.

Pubic Relations Division:

This will take you to the options menu.
Current options include, Main Menu Style and Manually remove hotkey.


Some more screen shots of menues. From the top of the Main Menu.

The Ships Ware Recycling Menu :




The MarCon Ind - Bulk Ship Ware Recycling Interface : is very useful if you are playing a Salvage game, combine it with 'NPC Bailing Addon' and 'Salvage Commands and NPC's' and you will be flat out keeping up. 'Recycle Ships Wares' makes recovering the goodies on these ships a lot faster opperation, it can also be used on an opperation of any size.

It allows you to transfer all of a docked ships cargo and equipment in one go and, if set, the ship will then auto fly to just about any location you set. It allows you to skip any ship that you don't want to strip or just remove only one type of ware.

You will get a report at the end after all of the docked ships have been cycled through, if any have had wares removed, it will list a total of ware amount, total avg value of recovered wares and variouse other details.



The Ships Ware Recycling Options Menu :



Abandoned Ships Search results :



Inventory Tracking : Usefull for all those items your looking for and can't remember where you left them.

It's lighted like a christmas tree! Surprised

Please, although it's the time for it, make a version with far less colours. Use bold and italics in combination with maybe an additional color (yellow).
So many colors simply don't fit into the modern menues. Looks horrible IMHO. Sad

Thanks for the input, good or bad its welcome.

However, that happens to be one of my dislikes about modern menues, they lack color, information and some have no degree of instruction at all and, i don't like bland. You may have noticed.

But, yes i will consider making a less colorful version, but for now i just want to get this version of the ground so to speak.

Thanks for the Honest opionion.
Any further comment, good or critical is welcome. Rolling Eyes

Or make certain areas different colours.

Perhaps every category a different colour. It would be easier to categorize and appreciated then Very Happy

This looks interesting. Interesting enough that ill have to play around with it when i have some time to play in the future.

From the screen shots, im at odds with the colors on it. While i admit it is over bearing at first, lookiing at what is colored, it seems you might be able to find what your looking for exactly right away.


On a side note, when i went to grab it to put in my holding/testing area, i couldn't d/l anything. Not sure if my dns hates me or whatnot. One of those all nighters in prep for new years, lol

Thrandisher

I just tested both download links and both are working fine, put it down to your new years Prep...ha ha. Very Happy

The colors aren't there just to look over the top, they may take some getting used to but they follow a theme through out all the menus and the results screens also all follow a theme. once you get to know what the colors represent you may find they are displaying the information in a way that you can pick out what you want very quickly.

In any of the ship type results screens press your page down key and the Info lines at the top will display a color key to tell you what the colors mean.

As for the Downloads site on the first page scroll to the bottom and you will see the Green oval shaped Download button, on the second page in the middle is a line that says Your Download will start shortly, under that is a line with a counter on it, wait the 35 seconds and the link Here will appear.

After you try it give me some feedback if you will.

Well, its a very impressive piece of work. I have no problem with the colors; I like the way you organized all of it. I did have some trouble getting some of the menu items to work (or my computer is just overloaded with x3 scripts...). I'll play with this some more.

This could be a necessary script to have for those of us with large empires.

Thanks for making it!

Which menu items are you having trouble with ? Is it the Main menu or menues further in ?

On the Main Menu there are a couple of items that are Text only and not selectable :
-> Blank lines - Stating the obviouse.
-> Selection Panel.
-> Your Ship Name and cargo details in the Command Target Area.
-> Quick View Links - in Station Management Devision - This is a Heading only - the links are listed below the heading.

If its not any of these, let me know and i'll look into it.

Thanks for the feedback.

To ALL :

Happy New Year. Very Happy

I have just changed Host sites (the old one has gone offline - Just my luck...).

If you are having any problems with the script downloaded from the old site please redownload it from the new site (Filefront). I have been informed by the old site administrators that apparently a lot of files became corrupt before the site went down.

The Download links have now been updated and checked.

I have also taken this opportunity to update the files to the New Version, just a few minor changes to one display and a minor oversite in one script on my behalf.

Thrandisher
This may explain the problems you were having.

To All,

Please except my appollogies for any inconvenience this may cause or have caused you. Sorry.

New version coming soon!

I will be releasing V103 in the very near future, about 1 week.

If there are any problems in v102 (thats the current version available) please post them soon (as in NOW) so as i can attemp to rectify before releasing V103.

None have been posted but if there are, speak up.

The new version will include:

Hotkey uninstall code that was left out of prev versions by mistake.

Basic Station credit management, this gives you the abilty to check your stations by Class for stations that don't have a minimum credit balance, remove stations from list you don't want to change, and either bring all listed stations up to this amount or transfer an entered amount to all listed stations.

Some minor menu touchups.


If you have any requests, get them in NOW...
