Just wanted to shoot a quick email to y'all to let you know I'm not ignoring you, just really busy, both at work and at home. Sigh.

take it that it doesn't show levels? I have docks and labours associated with most planets, it would be useful to know at a glance how high the shipyards are on each planet for example without loading an excel spreadsheet


That will have to be version 2.0 of my script. ;)

That was easier than expected. Let me know if you have any problems with it. Oh, and you owe me some hermes probes now. ;)

Great ideas! Thanks. You're not completely daydreaming either.... not completely. :P ;)

#1, I'm not the biggest fan of working on other people's scripts, but if they're available to me I can at least take a look at them.

#2 would require some web space somewhere. I have some through Hostmonster, but not enough to store all that data and handle the load of that many players, but I'll look into it. I was developing something similar to it a LONG time ago, when I was still a member of the KBF in the original universe. It is something I'm definitely interested in though.

I'll start with #3. That shouldn't be too difficult, as long as I'm able to call the delete message function on the SFC server via and Ajax call. (technical mumbo jumbo, sorry, LOL) I already have a good start on this. :)

#4 isn't very likely do-able. The SFC implement message expirations so they can save space in their database. And since this takes place on their server, I would have no control of this whatsoever. I might be able to do this by storing messages in a browser cookie, but I don't know if cookies can store that much data and storing them in cookies would mean they wouldn't be available for you if you switched to another computer for playing SFC. It would likely be better to submit a feature request to the SFC developers to maybe have it so that each player can have X number of saved messages.

Thanks Pantin, but no I don't Skype. Why don't you post your ideas here in this forum thread? Perfect place for it! Then maybe you ideas will spark ideas in other people, etc.

Thanks Ymerodraeth. I just updated the code; it had a couple bugs I just fixed. Browser cookies are a pain-in-the-butt in JavaScript! :/

There is still on lingering bug, but it's minor. My script pushes the resources block down to make room for the territory tracker bar, but when doing certain things like adding a ship to the build queue or starting a level on a building, it will "jump" back up and cover up the territory for the ninth colony. Minor, but I'll fix it when I figure it out.

Sure. I love programming. Let me know your ideas and I can at very least tell you if it's possible or not. :)

For any of you who use Firefox/Greasemonkey plugin, I just developed a "Territory Tracker" script that is a step above using Post-It's, LOL.
