[X3LU] Satellites Monitoring 1.8

Version 1.8 (Litcube's Universe only)
23/07/2017

A simple script that show you some useful informations when you have an advanced satellite and when the object (either an enemy ship, an enemy station, an abandoned ship, a potential smuggler or a flying ware) is in its range.
"Enemy stations" are the ones that don't allow you to dock. Phanon's essentially.
"Smugglers" are Pirates disguised as normal ships. You need a freight scanner to reveal them. If you have EMS installed, that will give you a mission. Smugglers are only scanned if you own a Police license.

You have three options when you click on a sector : View sector, Send the reaper, Jump.

The menu is accessible via a hotkey.

-----------------
Changelog

Version 1.8:
- Added an option to select whether or not you want the Reaper to go home after collecting all wares in sector.

Version 1.7:
- Added waresCount for each listed sector.

Version 1.6b:
- I'm stupid : 'M5', 'M4', 'TP', 'M3', 'TS', 'M8', 'TM', 'M6', 'TL', 'M7', 'M2', 'M1'.

Version 1.6:
- Added an "Abandoned ships minimum class filter" option (see the screenshot). It will browse through all ship classes, following this order : 'M5', 'M4', 'M3', 'TP', 'TS', 'TM', 'M8', 'M7', 'M6', 'TL', 'M1', 'M2'.

Version 1.5b:
- Did you find the bug fixed by this version ? Probably not.

Version 1.5:
- Fancy stuff : your sector line in purple, better layout, avoid multiple instances of the menu and minor useless details. See the screenshot.

Version 1.4c:
- Sh*t's f*ucked.

Version 1.4b:
- Ultimate code improvements. Performance greatly increased due to a single f* line !

Version 1.4:
- New scanned category : Potential smugglers. You need a Police licence for this to work.
- More code improvements.

Version 1.3b:
- Added a line to change the number of elements displayed on each page.

Version 1.3:
- Reduce stutters a lot !
- Check if the playership has a jumpdrive.

Version 1.2b:
- Code has been improved. It's still a bit stuttery when you have many satellites but it should be better...
- Now "enemy stations" are stations that do not allow you to dock. The previous [Find.Enemy] flag was acting strangely.

Version 1.2:
- Added a non selectable line "No satellites detected" when you have no satellites.
- Data are now updated in real time (every second).

Version 1.1b:
- Fix a bug where beacons were recognized as "Abandoned Ships".

Version 1.1 :
- Added page browsing.
- Added click options.

Looks very promising. Definitely going to try it.
Menu shouldn't be narrower?

The narrow menu is too narrow :)
I could add more informations to make good use of the remaining space ; maybe the race, and how many jumps you are from the sector...

Maybe a button to send the Reap shuttle to the selected sector? :D

EDIT: To expand on this without seeming like I'm asking for features without thinking about it: Pressing enter on a line could bring the user to a secondary menu with such entries as "View Sector", "Jump To Sector", "Send Reap Shuttle"

Missed this script dearly.
You know.. we fly spaceships in this game... but the information gathering is stone age worthy mostly :roll:

FYI: In 1.1 your file structure is "addon/script" rather than scripts.

I would not want to rehost anything without permission from Joubarbe.

What works for you in China? Dropbox? Filefront?
