This utility highlights planets that are ready to be harvested. The calibration marks are by freighter size. The resources have the same colour in each display. Is there a standard colour code for resources?


It takes a few seconds to display.

Harv Circ draws 1 circle around worlds with total of 200 resources (currently includes S), 2 around 1200, 3 around 2600. Might remove the one at 200.

Harv Bargraph shows all elements, in the order NDTMS$. The calibration lines are freighter sizes.

Harv Box draws a line to the right. The size of each segment corresponds to the resource quantity. Needs improvement, but good enough for a quick overview. Doesn't show money.

Harv Star shows all resources. The calibration circle is LDSF. It was going to be a pie-chart, but laziness worked in my favour. This way doesn't obscure the underlying (or neighbouring) planets.

Internet connection will be unpredictable for the next 2 weeks, so I won't reply immediately to comments. The goal is something most will find useful, and even beginning programmers can change the options easily.

Thanks to Joshua and Big Beefer for handing me a fishing pole when needed, and all the other developers whose examples I worked through. It's addictive.

In light of real life (all good things, but many of them), it's time to admit I'm abandoning these scripts.

Feel free to take over, copy, modify, whatever. There's nothing original enough in them to hold on to.

If someone wants to officially take over, I'll be glad to officially transfer ownership.
