Thrudd's Trading Tools is a community populated searchable database of trade commodities and station services for the space simulation Elite: Dangerous.
Hi Commanders, I've updated the site to connect to the new version of the EDDN network so things should be feeding again correctly. I'll be monitoring it over the next few days to watch for any weirdness that might have crept in with the update.
Hi folks, I hope those of you with beta access are enjoying the latest patch. There will no doubt be some changes I'll need to do to the site but I wont know until later this week when I'm able to get on and have a look myself.
There are some changes coming very soon to how the EDMC communicates data with the trade sites that I'll have to implement. Hopefully I'll get that done in the next couple of days but I wanted to warn you all that there may be a little disruption.
All data is gathered by members of the community and entered manually through an admin interface on the site, by uploading a csv of data gathered by using OCR tools or by using the EDDN network via ED Market Connector.
To upload CSV data you need to have reached Competent rank on my site but using the site or updating prices. See the list below.
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. ;)
