Next Colony Map update: Flight Radar, Farms and Rarity

in nextcolony •  3 months ago 

My interactive map tool is available here

All the advanced options of the map are available after putting your nick in the form -> Show mainly because of poor performance od big data series and API usage. Data is fetched from game API and the cached data that I collect every day using custom_jsons from Steem blockchain.

Farms

You will not find a "user last seen" data in the game's API. That's why I need to collect it analyzing custom tx's (All in-game actions send them into Steem blockchain).

This allowed me to build a great feature for my map:

Load all idle users (last seven days no action) to the map with one click. Performance depends on API respond time.

Planet Rarity

It is possible also to load data about planet rarity as below:

Flight Radar!

Ok, but what would you say if You could see almost real-time all ships in the region? (except deploys and support... no API support in loadgalaxy for now).

After clicking Flight Radar button mission are visible on the map with lines and triangles as ships with the direction of the moment. Hover the ship to see the data about quantity.

Refresh time is 60 seconds which is enough (ships are very slow). After loading it for the first time, explorations data series is turned off but the player can override it by clicking the legend.

Attack missions are red, transports yellow, explorations gray and sieges violet.

Of course, all point are clickable and important data (especially about planets) is loaded nearby and is very helpful when planning an attack.

Hover the ship (triangle) with a pointer to see what is exactly attacking you.

Have fun.

Nice! :)

Great! (:

Honestly, you have created the best tool for the game. I can run the map all day long, it is so informative and interactive. Very functional design. And the fast scroll and dragging makes going back to the in-game map a pain.

Give that man one of Oli's 500 donuts! ;D
