Hello everyone,

I am familiar with the market scanner but there are very limited options as to what you can scan for (everything, ammo & drones, manufacturing, and ships). I was wondering if there is another website you can visit in the IGB and select only certain items or certain groups of items. I am using a cache sc****r to get recent market information, but it would be nice if I didn't have to wait hours scanning the entire market just to get the data for the 100 or so items I'm interested in.

I have looked around, but no luck so far, perhaps I just over looked it, this seems like a very useful feature, and I would be surprised if no one has made one yet (unless maybe it's against the EULA?).

I made one, but it's currently unuseable (aka, not online). It am working on it though, and it will probably be useable on within a few days.

What would you like to do? Select specific marketgroups? Or manually enter items to scan?

Update: You can now find a custom item scanner on evemarketeer. If you wish me to make a global selection of a certain type of item, drop me a message.

Cool! I will check it out when I get home from work.

Ultimately I would like to be able to scan only items that are available for reprocessing, I have identified the groups that fall under this category and it would be nice if I could just scan for those instead of scanning the entire market.

I'm trying to think of what the best way to set this up would be, perhaps a list of check boxes with all the groups and you can just select the ones you want? Recreating a market-style tree might be a lot of work, but that would probably be the most intuitive way. Then you could just select specific items, or groups or sub-groups. Haha, not to make a lot of work for you, but I think a lot of people would find use for this.

Do you have an uploader for your website? I would be happy to help contribute my cache data if you were to add this feature. Currently I just use the eve-marketdata one so you will probably end up with the data anyway. Wink


PS - Random thought, I have no ideas about the limitations or capabilities of the IGB market scanner. But do you have access to the items in the market quick bar? Another feature people might find useful would be if you were able to scan everything you have bookmarked. That way I could just keep a list of important things in there, and only scan those, then use a cache reader to quickly analyze the data. Just a random thought, don't know if it's even possible.

Good news! now supports custom lists. either by type_id or marketgroup_id.
