TRI pilot timski just sent in the following story:

"Itīs been a while, but Iīve finally updated the Shipper Widget with all the changes from the last 3-4 months. At least I hope Iīve found all the changes; Iīm sure someone will tell me if I havenīt :smile: .

The widget models the underlying supply and demand within the gameīs economy, providing cargo haulers with a quick list of the things they should probably be shipping between any two stations. It doesnīt use any real time data. It doesnīt even claim to maximise your profits at the click of a button. But some of the most successful traders found it quite a useful tool, particularly when used with other tools. So, as long as players are using it, Iīll try and keep it reasonably up to date.

The widget can be had from or ."

Looks like Timski has updated his venerable program...damned useful information

EDIT: uhm. looks like bought the farm

JG Shipper Widget
Back in the mists of beta, before the days of live inventory.txt feeds (no, no, not yesterday ), I wrote a little utility that manipulated the game's static economy data. The widget featured general item information, production based transport links between stations, usage of items, production and demand by station, dependencies flowcharter, cycle timer, and cargo mission mini-game. The widget was aimed at production related trading, rather than BPC.

I stopped trying to accommodate the US server last year, when I realised how far the server had drifted from the JOSSH economy the widget was based on. Since then a few people have asked me to reconsider.

I'm told the US server has now returned to a JOSSH based economy, which means that a JOSSH based widget should be appropriate to this server. Some of the things I've done for the EU versions, such as the addition of non-station buildings, I can't do here, because I cannot keep them up to date. The current version includes all the EP2 related information I can find, although a few of the new items are still missing. There are a few other production related utilities now appearing, but this might still be useful.

The widget can be found here: (download the US server/JOSSH version).
