It's been a few months since the last update ! so..

First we want to welcome INEFFYBLE, USS JOHN JAY, AND FLASH to the DataCore team
They're responsible for many of the changes and additions you'll see below.

Since our transition to the community build and rehosting we've seen a five fold increase in traffic, up to 27,000 unique visitors a month, in addition to the new features.

Finance:
Due to the phenomenal community response to funding, and our move to a more cost effective hosting, we have enough to support the site and bot for some time. Thank you all for this support.
Consequently we are moving to a "Per Creation" Patreon, this means we will only take funds when we :

​1. Run out of money (unlikely in the next 18 months)
​2. See a massive increase in bandwidth or hosting costs
​3. Create a new feature which needs extra funding

Functionality:
  • Performance improvements - the site is snappier than ever before
  • Vanity URLs for DataCore profile links - use your Discord username in place of DBID
  • Better farming information from the Discord bot
  • Improved matching of crew variants
  • Better sorting and filtering when viewing your crew in player tools - now you can sort your crew by tier or level, and highlight duplicate crew
  • Extend player tools "Unneeded items" to show all schematics for max-level ships
  • New bot command to summarise portal pack offers
  • Better crew searching - use OR logic and negative matches to find the crew that matter to you
  • Crew retrieval support! - view optimised polestar combos for a specific crew, or use player tools to find out which crew you can retrieve
  • Mobile support for player tools (BETA) - added an option to upload saved player JSON to get around copy-paste issues on phones
  • Experimental fleet event leaderboard - see how fleets scored in past events
  • Daily activity to Discord bot fleet profile

    How do you post a new topic? We are looking to recruit to our fleet and I can't see how I do that.

  • thank you
  • @Sooz click on Fleet Central then click on new discussion
  • We've released further improvements to the DataCore web app, including:

    Crew Retrieval helper in player tools, incorporating several requests by community members:
    *: Better handle cases where someone tries to use the helper with an old player data file
    *: Add more filtering options for ownership - you can now filter for unowned crew only, owned crew only, and owned crew not FF only
    *: The stars shown for crew will now reflect the highest rarity version of that crew you own (if any)
    *: Filtering by collection
    *: Sorting crew by rarity in the Crew Retrieval helper will additionally sort by owned rarity

    Other Improvements
    *: Improved display of constellations on crew pages
    *: Improved polestar combo information and layout on crew pages
    *: More powerful search options in the main crew list
    *: Various bug fixes

    Thanks to:

    joshurtree and
    ChukwuOsiris for all their work on Datacore!
  • Thanks for the work. I'm new to DataCore, has anyone mentioned that some items in the unneeded items list are needed? Pike's Enterprise shows up down in unneeded equipment, as has random things like Mirror Leeta's Dress, and Salia's True Form. Both of whom I have but have not leveled at all. Wouldn't that mean those items are needed, eventually?

    Hey, yeah, take that section with a grain of salt for now (although the ship schematics section above should be 100% accurate).

    We'll hopefully have the logic improved soon.
