Aurora Dashboard (Graph data over time tool)
« on: April 27, 2020, 09:21:05 PM »
I've made a simple utility, AuroraDashboard, that periodically opens the AuroraDB. db database in read only mode, then (if time has progressed in the selected Game) reads out all the population's mineral amounts, and a few other variables and stores them in another database called DashboardDB. db. 

It then displays the information in a graph.  (See attached image!)

I'll be adding additional variables and objects to display, any requests? On the todo list is also different color schemes. 

Name: AuroraDashboard. exe
Size: 545280 bytes (532 KiB)
SHA256: 1CD44C2822590C3AE67EC44ABA482D30E9E38E9B65CBB208E71576005DB9911F

Name: AuroraDashboard v1. 7z
Size: 3603469 bytes (3519 KiB)
SHA256: E86B0D9BD987FC03D386416A91323026B9FEDB66D34A8F514E63EBC37E1009BA

This mod/utility has been approved by Steve. 

Please do not include this utility in any mod packs / mod suites.  I have not obfuscated the binary, aside from compiling it in release mode. 

Cheers,
Ganga

Oh, please extract this into a different directory from Aurora, please do not unzip this directly into your Aurora directory.

You should edit your first post to include this line.

Also: thanks! This is an amazingly useful idea.

Using 1. 9. 5 Aurora.   Everything opens up ok but nothing graphs when I select it.   Just an empty window.

I just tested the original v1 against 1. 9. 5 and it works fine, you need to save the game, let time pass (say, 5 days) then save the game again all while the dashboard is running.

You should add a readme file in the installation. For examole when you launch the application it's not really clear you need to select the aurora database.

You could also add the information on the instsllation and how to make it works from your previous posts.

Just a suggestion.

Good work anyway, I love your tool so far.

That is a good idea, I will include a readme in the next release.

Thank you! Any ideas on additional things to graph?

The entire set of terraforming data would be really interesting to map, although there's a lot of values to track.

There are so many graphs and pie charts I'd love to see it isn't even funny!

I'll add that

Even if it's not fully integrated with the graphing (not sure how you'd filter so many things with tick boxes in the current UI!) but if you are able to pull the data into the database I can report on it in Excel which is good enough.  :)

Also, is this open source? I'd be happy to potentially contribute to things if it's in a language I can work with.  👍
