Trade Computer Extension Mk.II for Elite Dangerous, created by Eventure

What is the Trade Computer Extension Mk.II?

The Trade Computer Extension Mk.II is a 3rd party app for Elite Dangerous and supports the player in many ways of the game.

It's an overlay, that displays on top of the HUD of Elite Dangerous, so it's not necessary to ALT-TAB out of the immersion of Elite Dangerous, because all panels and provided informations are shown in game of Elite Dangerous for total immersion.

Hints

  • TCE is delivered with a blank database of trade markets. So you choose either to start with it, adding markets you came across, to have your own personal database, or starting with a pre-populated database of markets, created by TCE-Relay, for a selected distance of light years and light seconds around your current postition in game. Is that your choice, enter the TCE-Relay window at the launcher and create a starter database. Good values for range and distance are 30 LY and 8k LS.
  • With the support tools, I suggest to use EDMC, which provides the market data for TCE by using Frontier's Companion API. EliteOCR is not required, if you want to use EDMC, but some maybe out there, which don't want to use EDMC, so with EliteOCR you can scan the Commodites window of ED to get the required data for TCE. Set up EDMC once (see Guide Section), thereafter it's not required to be run, only when updated.
  • The actual commodity prices may differ after some time from the prices, you have stored within TCE, but you can mass-update all stored prices by TCE-Relay before launching TCE. Enter the TCE-Relay window and hit the 'Update Prices' button. Every stored market in TCE got checked and updated, if required. This has to be done only once a day.
  • TCE is using the clipboard to store star system names in it, so if TCE is directing you to the next trade station, open the galaxy map of ED and paste the name of the star system into the search box to quickly set up as your destination.
