Some of you may know that I have been working on a .NET application that can help you plan your empire in X2, known as SectorPlanner. For the old-timers this was originally spawned from the desire for something similar to the Utopia spreadsheet for X-T.

Basically SectorPlanner makes it easier to spot those lucrative areas in the X Universe for building factories and then helps you keep track of your factories, their effect on the surrounding economy and most importantly the profit they are making for you.

*WARNING* SectorPlanner does display the entire map, including all hidden sectors, if you haven't explored all the map, you may want to wait until you have before using it.

You can download SectorPlanner here.

OR

Old link removed - http://www.lagerchurch.com/lordsuch/


The major features are:
i) Full map with every NPC station and their in game requirements listed.
ii) A dynamic resource usage display that informs you of the overall production / consumption of all products in the sector and the surrounding areas.
iii) Ability to add your own (player) factories that are reflected in the resource usage displays.
iv) If you set the resource pricing for your factories, it will calculate your profit overall and by sector.
v) A factory pricing calculator useful for finding the minimum selling price given the current buy price(s) for your resources.
vi) A search facility that can locate places selling either a product or a station.
vii) XML based data file generated directly from the X2 data files, therefore the 1.4 version should be release very shortly after the release of X2 1.4
viii) You *could* install it on your work computer and then work out where your next bunch of factories are going to go instead of working - not that I would do such a thing :twisted:

I would like any feedback that people have on SectorPlanner, whether good, bad or indifferent, please let me know either via this thread or via PM.



Cheers

If that still fails, I'll try and sort something else out...

Thanks paradox.....
It has been a lot of work; a labour of love, hate and vengeance :)

Thanks, this tool is just what a budding magnate needs to place another 25 loops or so :D

Really nice job!

Dead Link for the download :cry: . The page is fine except none of the graphics are showing, just the little cross in the corner. The MS net link was fine.

Is it a bandwidth thing?

I will try again later, this sounds just the sort of thing I am looking for.

It shouldn't be a bandwidth thing....

However if you don't have any joy within the next few hours, pm me and I'll sort out another hosting arrangement (or email you it if you prefer)

Got a question, do you have another thing without having to install anything from microsoft ???


I don't really like downloading anything from them. Let's just say i got bad service from them in the past, and since then never downloaded anything from them anymore.


DZorro,

LordSuch, thank you, thank you, thank you. :D

This is not just Utopia for X2 but it's even a step further. Invaluable!

You will need the .NET frameworks otherwise it wont run. He would have to recode the entire thing to give you a version with no download.

How can you use windows and then not download anything from microsoft.

Kudos! Nice work my friend. It looks like a very good tool that I have already put to work. You will probably get a lot of suggestions on how to improve and add a few nice features. I bet over time this is going to be one of the best X2 downloads. It already surpasses anything I've seen out there. Kudos again! :D

Yes, sorry bout that, i already downloaded, it's just microsoft, ait so good, but just because most games playes with it well, that's why i even decided to have it, if linux or other where better, then i would have never gotten wnXP in the first place.


DZorro,
