    It doesn't automatically update because you are just loading a text file beforehand. That would be a cool feature, but it's not too hard to guesstimate where they should be in order. The biggest challenge for me is alt+tabbing a bunch for sure. An in-game overlay would be great but might break TOS?

    It works great for what I have done.

    Hints:
    0 - plan your route.
    1 - you know where you are, just look up the next point and head there.
    2 - use the survey to exact pin point the location and not the locations map. Very little window toggling that way.
    3 - IF <more-to-do> then goto step 1.


    What would really be helpful would be the ability to wipe the map points and renumbering the set instead of changing their color. OR removing the number and renumbering if you turn it blue.

    Say I have 10 points...route is 6, 1, 9, 4, 10, 3, 5...
    I do survey #6 , then 1...that was easy. Surveys #6 and #1
    Now I have to remember that #9 is now in spot number 7

    The more surveys you do, the harder it gets. Survey point #37 could be in spot #6 in your inventory.

    We were talking about ideas like that in guild chat last night. I don't see why there couldn't be a "renumber as you go along" option, though that would conflict a bit with having placed spacer items every 10 surveys in inventory at the start.

    I was also thinking about having it optionally draw a little simulation of your inventory on the right, where it could either gray out each survey as you mark it as used, or have it remove the survey from the inventory entirely, so it'd actually be drawing the current expected state of the inventory.

    The consensus was that those features didn't add enough to be worth it, but I wouldn't mind giving them a try and seeing how they look.

    How about this?


    D x x x x x x x x x x
    x x x x x x x x x x x
    x x P x x x x x x x x
    x S x x x H x x x x x
    x S x x x x x x x

    D=Default survey start
    P=point I say surveys start
    S=spacers IF using spacers = yes
    H=Survey you are going after

    On plot turn all Green
    Click FIRST map location spot = Turn Red and highlight where in inventory
    Click next location spot =
    Remove highlighted survey
    IF using spacers Step shrink survey inventory ELSE remove last survey spot (why shrink if no spacers )
    Vanish map location
    Renumber
    Highlight new survey in inventory
    Turn map location spot RED
    ENDIF

    THAT might make it TOO easy for people to use though...

    EDIT:
    Number the surveys in the simulated inventory! And allow a click on the survey itself or a map click.

    To UNDO a mistake re-click the highlighted survey or map point, then click the correct survey.

    Yeah! That's pretty close to what we (Tamiq/Terramir/Clip) discussed. I'll give it a shot. Right now it's at the "eye-bleedingly horrible prototype" stage, and I'll add it as a beta/experimental/optional feature if it gets to some moderately acceptable level of suck. (No promise on schedule, this week is pretty busy)

    I think that the fake inventory part will make it much more user friendly than clicking the map for everything. (I have done way too many programming changes where the "bosses" wanted something horrible and complicated instead of making it easy to use and understand.)

    Not used this tool yet but seems great.
    Would be nice to be able to draw and reccord a road by clicking pin after pin on the survey helper map (if this is possible). And once done, click a button that will calculate for you the clicking spot of each map in your inventory.

    With the the previous exemple :
    Say I have 10 points...route is 6, 1, 9, 4, 10, 3, 5...
    so good clicking spot order is : 6, 1, 7, 3, 6, 2, 2...

    Sorry for my non natural english

    Just used the survey tool for the first time, and please allow me to say what an incredible help it is. Great work devolping it, and thank you for your incredible generosity in sharing it with the community.

    For me the one thing that would improve it from incredibly helpful to stratospherically near-perfect is what i think was being suggested here:
    Quote Originally Posted by cozycats View Post

    I do survey #6 , then 1...that was easy. Surveys #6 and #1
    Now I have to remember that #9 is now in spot number 7
    I don't think it would be too difficult a change to implement. When the user clicks on a pin to change it from red to blue, all pins with a greater number should decrement by 1. Clicking the pin is an indicator that the user has completed that survey and removed it from the inventory. Hence all surveys further in the list should reduce their value by one, to indicate that they have moved one spot forward in the user's inventory.

    Again thank you so much for the tool and for considering this suggestion.

    Yes, I've been trying to figure out a way to do that without the interface being a mess. Thankfully Alleryn just suggested one that was way better than what I was trying. I will be doing that!

    Not a clue! Anybody know?

    Oooh, thank you, that's a great idea! I was messing around with grids of numbers on the right side of the tool window to try to figure out how to undo map removal if you mis-clicked. It hadn't occurred to me to renumber the unchecked ones, and then the blue checked maps also work as the undo mechanism.

    Thanks! I will definitely try that. Also, there's a beta version of the tool that does motherlodes. I should just make that the main page now...
