Source Code on GitHub

The entire source code including database seed for Galaxy Harvester is finally moved to a publicly available repository. Previously the source link on the page footers would link to a tarball of the sites web files, but now it links to this new GitHub repository where all Galaxy Harvester development activity will happen now. I hope this will serve these purposes:

  • Help people be able to set up their own private Galaxy Harvesters easier.
  • Disaster recovery incase the site needs to be recreated somewhere else for whatever reason.
  • Allow for an avenue for more contributors to site development in the future.
  • Provides a place to share documentation, users to report bugs, and activity to be shared/tracked.

Headers, Cleanup, and Lothal

A few updates happened over the day, here is a summary:

The long ago originator of most of the graphics on Galaxy Harvester cooked up some new header images for the site. There are many more now, and even some seasonal ones. Thanks Apex!

In order to keep current resources somewhat cleaned up for servers using automatic resource uploading, Galaxy Harvester would previously automatically mark unavailable any resource that was available for over 30 days. To tighten this up even more, this cleanup will now happen according to the default maximum spawn durations typically set. 11 days for most Inorganics, and 22 days for Organics and JTL resources.

Rogue One server recently added a new planet, Lothal. Lothal is now added to Galaxy Harvester so resources can be reported there.

Available Planets

The number of SWGEmu based servers continues to expand, and many of those projects continue to add exciting new content to expand on the game we love - even new planets.

You may have noticed references to these new planets on Galaxy Harvester even if the server you play on does not have them. That is because Galaxy Harvester was never designed to represent different galaxies having different available planets. When we went to add the latest planet addition, it seemed a good time to do something about that, as the additions could end up being quite a clutter of unnecessary information for some people. So in addition to adding the planet Mandalore as an available selection today, we have also made the following changes.

  • When adding resources, the available planets to pick from will be based on your currently selected Galaxy.
  • When viewing resource lists, the planet bar will only include planets that are valid for that resources galaxy.
  • On the Waypoint Maps and Survey Tool screens, only planets related to your selected galaxy will be shown.

As always, if you are running an SWGEmu server listed on Galaxy Harvester and have new planets added to your server, email us at the contact address to get those planets associated to your galaxy on the site so players can select them.

Feedback and Bloodfin

Ok, so today we have a return of the Suggestions and Feedback page. Almost. At this point you can view and vote on feedback, but the ability to add new items and comment on existing ones is still in the works.

Also, as players on the Bloodfin server are aware, the new planets available there Hoth, and Dromund Kaas have not quite had full functionality here on Galaxy Harvester due to missing resource types and other details. As of now, almost all of those types are available and all site functionality for those planets should be available. There are a few resource types I think that might still not be in the list, but they will be getting added soon.

Happy surveying,

Feedback Migration

Just a heads up, the feedback page where you enter and vote on site suggestions is going to be unavailable for a little bit. The Google Moderator service we have been using for it is shutting down soon. Suggestions and voting will be closed while the existing data is moved. I'll post an update when this process is complete and the page is available again.

My Resources Tutorial

Just a quick heads up everyone, I've added another tutorial video. This one talks about how to use the Favorites/My Resources feature. Here's the link: Favorites

End Of Liberator!

Well, it's finally over. Liberator is wiped and we're back on the road of progress. I'm sure you've all noticed that the new Basilisk galaxy is listed and resource info is starting to come in. Though, I don't expect a fervent effort to keep everything tracked until after we move out of Pre-Alpha stage. Regardless of the impending wipes during Pre-Alpha, I hope Galaxy Harvester will be a useful tool to share bits and peices of what's out there, even if the spawns don't stay for long.

Before we let Liberator sink all the way into the Dune Sea, I wanted to recognize some of the most awesome resource surveyors who served during the time of Liberator. First, I will mention Eber. Though we have not seen much of Eber lately, he holds the record for most resources added on Liberator at 1,153. I remember his name filling the top current harvesters stats for quite some time last year. More recently, kbarton10 and jsteuck have been keeping us all in the know with constant resource information. Kbarton10 almost caught up to the insane record Eber set even, and jsteuck has been a consitent contributer in both the resource and waypoint categories. If I listed everyone, this post would be a huge block of usernames, but take a second to check out the stats page with the Liberator galaxy selected to see who's been making Galaxy Harvester worth using.

Myself and many other players appreciate the efforts of those who take the time to keep Galaxy Harvester updated. With Basilisk coming online, it looks like we have some new members getting in the mix adding resources too, and that is great. The more of us pitching in, the easier the job is for everyone. There is a certain enjoyment to be gained from cataloguing all the stuff out there too, I think. Thanks again all of you who update resource data on Galaxy Harvester, and donate cash to cover the hosting fees.

See you on Basilisk!

Still Alive

Hey, it's been some time since you've seen news, so I wanted to give you all a quick update on current Galaxy Harvester activity. For the most part, I've been working on a new feature where you will be able to mark resources as favorites to keep track of and group specific resources on a personalized page. I would say it is about 50% done at this point, so that should be coming out within a month or two.

You may or may not have noticed recently some performance improvements on various parts of the site. Over the last couple of weeks improvements to the efficiency of a large number of database queries have gone in. As new features have gone in over time, things have gotten more complex, so a review and tuning was long overdue. Finally, today I have refreshed the schematic data from the current SWGEmu code base which adds almost 300 schematics, bringing the total up to 1660 now. And yes, I remembered to swap the OQ/PE weights on the chemical schematics this time! ;-)

Thanks,
