Navigation planning updatesPosted: February 1, 2012
I’d decided that I’d put some time and love into the old girl at the start of the year and I’ve just pushed up and merged the latest offering for you dark denizens to enjoy. Planning your route to jita is one of the most important things you need when you finally spring into k-space and not only that, being able to see how far that jumpfreighter has to travel is a must so after the initial layout tweak I’ve revamped the navigation tool.
The layout is this. Left is the tools, map onthe right and for those of a literate persuasion a table below with further info such as number of kills etc. In the previous update I added WH routes to the mix (providing you updated the sig map correctly) and the bottom option allows you to see graphically where your systems lead to. The routes back to empire need improvement. I have on the cards a clickable icon to zoom you from W-space to K-space map and back again instead of the great big orange lines stretching accross the cosmos.
Word of note : the capital planner is not optomised so will not always bring back the most optimum route as dotlon’s does, but the capital planner is more of a guide so you can see how far that JF has to go before you decide to close the static again for a more prefered system. I may at some point optimise it but for now, use it as an indicator.
As it stands atm the jumpbridge section is broken and I will be updating it next. Some folks wonder why I included a JB map into a W-space site, well as most of us will be members of some nullsec alliance with access to JBs, it makes sense you should be able to plan your routes using those handy gateways. you can find some pretty good routes if things are done right. My most interesting route so far was from a C5 to nullsec, over 2 JBs into a C3 to a hisec 6 jumps from jita.
As usual, find any bugs hit me up with a message.
