Oops- missed it! It's up there now.

Any other suggestions from anyone? Thought that we should really have a sticky in here with the links anyone starting out would need.

Check out the results of this query. It identifies what I believe are 227 systems in mapSolarSystems that are incorrectly labelled with respect to their numbers of jump gates (i.e.: fringe, corridor and hub). For instance, Unpas is listed as a corridor, but according to mapSolarSystemJumps, it has three jump gates (Shihuken, Urlen, and Uitra), making it a hub. If I'm somehow misinterpreting the data, please let me know.

select *
from (
Select s.solarSystemName,
s.solarSystemID,
COUNT(1) jumps,
s.fringe,
case when COUNT(1) = 1 then 1 else 0 end fringe_REAL,
s.corridor,
case when COUNT(1) = 2 then 1 else 0 end corridor_REAL,
s.hub,
case when COUNT(1) > 2 then 1 else 0 end hub_REAL
from mapSolarSystems s,
mapSolarSystemJumps j
where s.solarSystemID = j.fromSolarSystemID
group by j.fromSolarSystemID,
s.solarSystemName,
s.solarSystemID,
s.security,
s.fringe,
s.corridor,
s.hub
) tbl
where (fringe <> fringe_REAL or corridor <> corridor_REAL)


Thanks,

Should probably bugreport that rather than posting it in a thread unrelated to your plight.

Updated main post with new db dump while I was here.

From the change log in the apoc dump

-- REMOVED IN APOCRYPHA

-- invBlueprintTypes.chanceOfReverseEngineering


This used to hold the base invention chance iirc.

Where do I go to get this information now ?

Ix can I make you add: No Api info required
to http://www.evecorplogo.net - Corp logo generator since it's working without any api info.
another thing you might want to add as well is that it's a online generator that takes either corporation id or corporation names as the request method.

kind Regards

I find it very irritating that you should enter an apiKey in order to get the corpLogo, if just the eve corp id suffice.

Thats not very good programming and it certainly does not need the api(whatever the intentions about the gathered apiKeys are).

This one doesn't need API keys. The other one has a nice harvest of keys this way to use to read other people's forums ..

Yeah, of course. The API functionality in that one is there because it was created before that info could be obtained without the API for corps outside of alliances. That was a recent-ish change and I've just not had time to update it. It doesn't require you to use your API keys; it'll work just fine with any corp, the API bit can be ignored. It doesn't even store keys; there's a simple SQLite backend that stored corpid->graphic/colorid mappings so they could be regenerated without needing to store the keys but I'll delete that now the data's public.

Static Database Dump

Apocrypha 1.3 Static Data (Various formats, complete)
The above dump contains wormhole data not found in the official static data dump, along with NPC data.




What is the mechanism for downloading the static database dump from zofu? I get directory listings, but no way that I can see to download the files.

Might try downloading the latest SDD you can find the links here in thread as it seems someone hasn't updated this thread to reflect 1.5 yet Rolling Eyes

As to how to download them try clicking on the file name of the one you need and the download should start for you.

I appreciate the suggestions. I downloaded the SDD a week ago, but my copy of SQL Server Express 2005 will not read it. I run primarily on a MAC, though I have a PC for PC-only work. I went to zufo to avoid the step of loading into SQL Server and transporting to MySQL or sqlite3 - a step made more difficult because I was unable to read into SQL Server. I am just at the stage of tapping into the data for the first time, so I am content with a previous version. Hence zufo.

I also clicked on the names of the files at zufo (with both Firefox and IE browsers), but all I get is a screenfull of binary data - no download.

Sounds like you have your browser configured wrong for those file types and it's trying to view them instead of downloading them. Try right chick or whatever a Mac uses for the same thing and tell it to 'save' the file and it should work. You might have 'save as' instead which would also work.

On why you probably couldn't use the latest SDD it's probably because they've now gone to 2008 version which the older version doesn't understand.

zofu has a thing about application/octet-stream MIME types. You'll have to right click and hit 'Save as' to download the files.
