Thrudd's Trading Tools is a community populated searchable database of trade commodities and station services for the space simulation Elite: Dangerous.

1.2 Beta Patch Notes

Just in case you haven't seen them yet here are the patch notes.

A little fix that has been added in the 1.2 beta 2 patch today: Station import and export data in the system view should now be more accurate.

Not spotted anything else noteworthy with regards to trading yet but will post if I do.


How is the data gathered?

As the developers have asked us not to hook into the game to scrape data automatically all data is gathered by members of the community and entered manually through an admin interface on the site or by uploading a csv of data gathered by using the eliteOCR tool on screenshots of the commodities interface.

How can I contribute?

Access to the site is gained through registering and using the site. New users can query existing data after a few searches they can unlock the ability to edit prices and later adding editing stations and systems. Sending me a nicely worded email also works. ;)
