station find (finds cargo at stations)

Jan 13, 2008 blacknet link
OK this is a cool plugin.

It will search your station cargo inventories and display what you are looking for. partial text, regexp or what not, station cargo only, ships only,items on ships or everything.

I have the bind on/bind off feature. This means if you bind it to the 'p' key you press 'p' to open the window then 'p' again will close the window.

The matrix will also sort up or sort down by all columns by clicking on the gray header.

Also as usual with my matrix' every other line is light/dark gray, every 10 lines has a darker gray and every 100 lines is a orange/yellow/red color. Helps you count easier.

Usage: /sfind

[ I] is item inside a station,
[ S] is ship,
[ A] is a ship addon,
[ C] is ship cargo

How to activate?
I can't seem to find/figure out how to access this once plugged in.

This is great but how is it used? I can't find any find screen. I've tried to activate it with several commands (eg. /station-find, ?station-find Help, /stationfind, etc, etc) without luck.

I'd love to know how to use this.


[EDIT] - Bah, you just beat me to it Hijinx.

Yeah, it's quoted right at the bottom of the lua file. I swore at it long and hard for a long long time before I got it going.

Doh, sorry about that, I usually put that on the post. I totally overlooked that part.

Thanks, I was just thinking recently how useful it would be to be able to do this :)

works nicely though it won't give me an accurate count of items in a ship just that there's at least one there
Jan 15, 2008 blacknet link
I updated it to 0.2a :)

both of the following will now show up as x items and not 1 item x times

fixed: ship count
fixed: ship cargo count

ship cargo count now gives accurate numbers.

Okay, I'll have to try it out before I jump to too many conclusions, but in the meantime, THANK YOU!

It would seem that one of the recent VO updates has broken Station Find. Instead of showing the System/Sector (eg. Sedina D-14) in the location column, it now shows the name of the station (eg. TPG Headquarters) instead.

Not sure when this happened exactly, I have been away for a few weeks and there have been 3 updates during that time.

Anyway, figured I'd mention it since it doesn't seem like anyone else has.

Quite right! It is fixed and updated. Thanks for that help.

Ok I released 1.0B. few changes.

You can search by system, nation space or everywhere.
So all of serco space for whatever item you are looking for, leave it blank for everything you have.

The 'hop's is the number of systems with weight given for crossing nation borders. Currently the itan/serco border is high (10 points) and the rest I think is 3 points.

I also broke up the station name and system so you can group and sort by that.

The coloration is from the FNC plugin by Eonis.

Thanx Moda works good now. Appreciate everything you guys have done to make things more enjoyable. is also good to see the lua guild developments being intergrated in the game CONGRATS.
