This very useful tool is able to hold your price data of registered market up-to-date and was created by the supporter flat. He developed the tool, because the price data is varying much with the ED 2.1 update, so his tool uses the crowd-source gathered price data from EDDN (Elite Dangerous Data Network) to update less actual data of TCE.
This tool is included into the TCE installation and requires no separate install. You can access it via the launcher of TCE.
Thank you flat for this tool, which makes TCE even better at all!
