Product Finder V1.5
-------------------

This Trade Command Software addon lets you search for a specific ware in sectors that the player knows. You will get a message which tells you where the ware
you're looking for can be bought and how many units the factory has in stock. It also tells you how many jumps the factory is away. It adds a new command to the
Trade menu and requires Trade Command Software Mk2 to be installed.

New in V1.5:
------------

- Shiptype Locator: You want to buy a Nova Raider or a Nemesis Sentinel? You don't know which shipyard sells them? Stop checking each shipyard manually, this tool
does the work for you, just select the ship you want to buy, and you get a message at which shipyard it is sold. It adds a new command to the Trade menu and requires Trade Command Software Mk2 to be installed.

- Best Price Locator: This tool checks what tradeable wares you have in your cargospace and it finds the station which pays the best price for each of the wares.
If multiple stations have the best price, it will show the one that is closest to your current location. This tool adds a new command to the Trade menu and requires Trade Command Software Mk2 to be installed.

Install:
--------

Unpack the archive to your X3 root directory or manually copy the files to the matching folders.

Uninstall:
----------
Delete 448888.xml from your t folder
Delete setup.plugin.mtsFindProduct.xml, mts.sectorcheck.xml, mts.FindProduct.xml from your scripts folder.

Known Issues:
-------------
None so far

To do:
------
Improve formatting of the output.

History:
--------

1.5 Added Shiptype Locator and Best Sales Locator


1.01 small addition to the t file, so the command shows in the SE


ZIP Download is here

Script Installer Package Download can be found here

An example picture from the output window can be seen here.

Any feedback is welcome.

Might be handy to link to the actual file, if you want feedback. Most of the scripters here like to look at the code in order to offer suggestions.

From a purely selfish point of view though, i would love to try it out so that equiping my ships will be easier. Very Happy

Edit: Thanks i'll give it a go after work.

sounds great but I have two suggestions:

1: it should only work on sectors you have found. if that's already the case then you should probably specify that

2: perhaps it should only work on sectors that have advanced satelites in?

otherwise cool, I'll get that now Smile

Hi Tritous,

the software only looks for wares in sectors that you already found.
The idea with the advanced satellites sounds good, but i came up with another idea:

When you have no satellite in the sector it doesn't show the amount of available wares. So you will only get the full info when having a satellite in the same sector as the factory is.

I will test that tommorrow.

This is something I will use! Much better than checking each station individually which became a pain in the a$$.

Tomcat: Please take a look here, second page.

Also, in your t file, you forgot page 2008. It should be
Code:
<page id="2008" title="Commands" descr="">
  <t id="450">COMMAND_BLAH_BLAH</t>
</page>

Without this page the command shows up as TRADE_50 in the SE, which is only a minor concern.

Thanks AalaarDB for the hint with the command in the SE, i changed it the t file now.

For the other problem, i don't see how my script could overwrite one of your commands, the only command i used is the trade 50 command.

I'm glad you like it, Mobuj Smile

About your suggestion, i have something ready that looks for the best prices for the wares in your cargo hold and gives you the nearest station for each of those wares. If that is what you meant, i will try to finish it tonight and probably put it in the product finder package.

Great mod Very Happy

but I'm only able to get part of it working (I think), I go to trade and I only have 3 more options, Find Product, Find Shiptype to buy and Find best Price. In your readme it talks about a Best Sales locator

Best Sales Locator: This tool checks what tradeable wares you have in your cargospace and it finds the station which pays the best price for each of the wares.
If multiple stations have the best price, it will show the one that is closest to your current location. This tool adds a new command to the Trade menu and requires Trade Command Software Mk2 to be installed.


I'm sure it's me doing something wrong Confused but could you just tell if it's working properly.

Cheers

Ernie

Hi ernie,

it's bad naming on my side, i'm sorry. The best sales locator is the Find best price. I will update the readme.
