Resource Monitor/Alarm/Filter
That's of course the feature i really need. Thats why i prefer MyRes over all other. Because a resource dont vanish from SWGCraft without notice from me.

BUT: I would like an info text at the "watch list"

This is the current tab from MyRes

And this is what i would like to see:

As note i would like to be able to add everythink i want (as much as there is space *g*)

Reason is this:
I have different things i craft and different storages. Many reasources can be used by several different items but usual i decide where it is best for when i harvest it. At the moment i have to write that info down somewhere else because i can't add the info at MyRes. Would be perfect to change that :)

Oh - and about the Resource storage:
Please make it a bit similar to MyRes so i can choose different storages. And be able to see all storages or only the selected one. Would be great :)

Thanks for your suggestion, the one on comments was somewhere in my head half a year back but now I found it had slipped down my spine somewhere, you brought it back up. Yes, definitely yes.

With "different storages", do you mean the ability for different characters?
Yes, that will be done!

Everybody, do as Beli, let the ideas keep coming. The sooner the better since some may be hard to squeeze in when it is too late.

I mean like in MyRes. It can be different characters - but also just deifferent houses.
I have different storage vendors on my different toons. But others maybe store their stuff in bags in different houses where all toons can access them easily. So thats why you need to be able to see all resources at once still.
You use MyRes, don't you? so you know what i am talking about ?
If not i can make a few screenies :)

BTW the comments: In MyRes you can wrote comments on resources in storage (i use that for example for notes like "best ever / Feb. 2007", "for bespin port only" or "lots for sale !!" (thats means for me: dont buy stuff worser then this. Only for really low price *g*)
But you cant see the commens in the resources view and no notes at the monitoring. Thats what i miss.
If you want i can make a few example screenies for that also *g*

I used used MyRes, still have a working copy, and I know of the different characters. Of course anything can be used rather than a character's name, now I just have to figure out a good name for it; MyRes use "Character" but that is not appropriate when the user means a bag, a vendor, or anything else.

You English native guys, any suggestions? "Location" maybe?

Not an English guy myself, but what about Storage, Stockroom, Store, Depot?

Not english also - but location or name storage could work either

I agree with Beli and like to add something:
Not just a comment field, but maybe like the storages, that you can save different sets of filters.

Like Filters for: "Food", "BM", "Weapons"

Actually, I am doing the first two sections, and want to collect some resources for munitions, so I can maybe switch.

That means, I have hundreds of filters at the moment, and it becomes hard to handle.

Maybe something like a "instance" with a certain set of filter and linked ressources. Means if you want to craft food, you can load that set of filters and storage, and load another when doing something else.

There are two things I would like to see with regards to using it for updating creature resources:

1) A way to separate Animal Bone from Avian Bone.
Currently I get a listing of Avian Bone on its own but there appears to be no way to get a listing of Animal Bone on its own.

2) Some way to distinguish resources once they move into their despawn range, ie display resources over X days old only.

2) Some way to distinguish resources once they move into their despawn range, ie display resources over X days old only.
  1. The first question is "why?"
    As far as I know Avian Bones is a sub-type of Animal Bones and unless that is not the case the behavior is correct, both in SWGAide and in the resourcetree.xml file. I may be wrong, but prove me wrong please.
  2. I have something on my wishlist that says "color on age", and yes, I will color according to Lunariel's statements on resource classes' expected lifetime. Hopefully these are still valid. In short:
    All JTL resources: 13 to 22 days.
    Inorganics: 6 to 11 says.
    Organics: 6 to 22 days.
    So, whenever I add it it will be something as
    white = less than 6 days old (except JTL which is less than 13 days)
    blue = less than half of the range 6 to max_age
    purple = older than half of that range.
OK?

Why?
Because as I stated in the first line of the post it would make updating creature resources easier, to update I go to the relevant resource and order by date (oldest to newest) then work my way down the list to the 6 day mark using the 30k resource kit. This method works perfectly well for everything but Animal Bone which it mixes with Avian Bone and which in turn clutters the screen and can lead to mistakes.

Just a request to make life a bit easier if its possible great if its not such is life.

OK, I didn't understood you yesterday, tired on my way to bed, sorry.
Hmm, I am at work now, no SWGAide here, but you mean that it intermixes the two. Yes, I believe so, that is since Avian Bones is a sub type of Animal Bones and it inevitably becomes that way.

I will see what I can do and add your request to my list. Possibly it will be a right-click option at the resource class tree "show only this class", but that would do, right?

Already is at my wishlist to add "free" resource uploads, so you can upload creature resources directly from SWGAide, as well as single resources of different types. Of course connected to a notes file.

Two years ago, when I got hands on one of the source code libraries SWGAide is built around, I built a command line script and I used it more or less only for creature resource, in about the style you are asking for. Those were the days :)

Hi Zimoon,
Rommel introduced this to me yesterday (well, told me about it while he was inputting resources), and i wanted to say awesome job on the program...

But there are 2 things that i'd like to request... that i've noticed i cannot do.
1. I'd like to be able to catalog my database on my home and work computer... is there a way i can have both locations access a single location for my resources?
2. I personally play on 2 servers...
Bloodfin: i've played for just over a year, and have inputted a lot of resources (i apparently have 108 resources, but quite a few with 10-15 million of each resource)...
Radiant: Transfer from Valcyn... I've played Valcyn for 4 1/2 years before doing the free cts to radiant.

Now, Valcyn had some uber resources recently (Eenat, Polymer, OQ 996, SR 996, vint ore, etc)...
I have split my resources from valcyn and moved some to Bloodfin, but the rest were sent to Radiant...

I'd like to be able to catalog my valcyn resources in the Bloodfin and Radiant databases...

I had read that i could import my valcyn resources into the valcyn database, but the problem is that i don't even have a valcyn toon anymore...So i can't just import my valcyn resources to the valcyn database...

This is more of a wishlist idea... as i have a few other resources on both servers that are from other servers (wanderhome, starsider, etc) that i've never had a toon on.

Thanks.
