Capital Industry ManagerPosted: 2011-03-30 Filed under: industry, ships 4 Comments
Our Custom Wallet Manager and my trading operation has undergone some growth in the past two weeks as I have been expanding into Industry. I have two characters with Production Efficiency V, Advanced Mass Production IV, and Science V and some cash so I wanted to start big, really big.
I wanted to expand on our Wallet Manager and track:
- Mineral Stock
- Capital Component Stock
- Industry Jobs: Manufacturing, Copying, ME/PE Research
After some long discussion with my trading and coding partner James, I had a wireframe mocked up and here are the results:
Capital Build Page
Industry Job Page
These two pages work off of the Assets and Industry Jobs APIs. Our biggest setback is that the Asset API limit is 23 hours. The workaround that we crafted is to have the asset quantity get updated with the quantity of the Capital Components that were produced when the Manufacturing job completes (API change of “completed” from 0 to 1) .
That’s coming along nicely! 😀
I’d still be interested in licensing something like this for ISK, if you peeps would be up for such an exchange. 🙂
I was kidding around with that type of stuff for t2 and t3 production but found the micro management involved in updating the ME/PE of my blueprints and such hideous…since the api won’t tell you. – and I was compiling the whole production tree for the desired item (complex t2 production is complex).
t1 + cap production is alot easier tho and your mock ups look promising. I had something like a boundary for my mineral supply (i.e. “buy tritanium since you are running out of stock, but you can still build 5 abaddons right away”). so you don’t have to run for minerals each week…if that makes any sense to you.
also reoccuring “project”s as you name it made me some headaches since I did’nt want to enter “build another 50 hobgoblins II” job each 3 days..
The website looks to be coming along nicely. I was curious if you would mind sharing any of the extensions that you are using from the framework for your website? I had started using the framework about a month for some side projects and ran across your site during a Google search.
