Quote from: Warrior on February 25, 2009, 09:40:56 AMI have another suggestion for a tool, A RULfile viewer, it doesn't have a character limit, so no need to keep on exporting it and using notepad.But have an export button to a folder you can set. (so it only asks you once to choose a folder)Full find and replace functionality.It tells you if you've modified the file since you last save, also what time you last saved, and what time you last exported.Also maybe it could highlight what you modifed since you downloaded the Controller dat.Now to go try out the latest version...Jonathan
Quote from: caspervg on February 26, 2009, 07:21:29 AMHuge kudos to you, Stefan. Thanks to your excellent tools, I finally managed to DAMN my favourite sets of lots Two small suggestions: Could you make it so that in the DAMN Creator/Editor, in Step 3/4, you can tick "Hide All", so you can hide all lots from the regular menus, instead of having to tick it for every lot?Also, perhaps it would be useful to have a function so that in Step 2/4, growable lots are automatically deselected (but shown).

Quote from: andy33b on March 13, 2009, 04:06:44 AMHi Stefan,first of all for your work.I have a few suggestions to improve the SSP tool, especially the DAMN-creator:remember the path of the last selected files in step 1. It is tedious to have to navigate each time the whole path down to the files, (almost) to the same place you were last timein step 2, show the exemplar name or item name or, if existing, the ltext-content instead of the TGI. I think most users are driven by the name they find in the SC-menu, not the TGI (which is normally hidden in SC)make the tool accessible with the keyboard. When working mobile (on the couch, in the train, ...) or just if someone prefers to work with the keyboard the tool isn't quite handy. If you need more info, I'll make a list of what IMHO isn't right (I won't be able to dig myself into the code since I haven't programmed in java yet).As a future tool I'd like to see a "sorter" like an explorer with tree-view, list-view and drag-n-drop to easily rearrange the elements among the tree and inside a folder. This tool should "of course" be able to scan the plugin-directory and extract the lots from there. Such a scan should probably be made in two steps:1. Step: build a cross reference list. Since Exemplars, Icons, Ltext can/would be in different files and/or overwritten (in the "zzz_"-folders)2. Step: load and combine the Elements (Exemplar, PNG, LText) according to this listFrom what I already have seen and tried, such a cross list should reference: Exemplares with Type:"Building", Occupant Groups (list of I32, search the ones that belong to a SC-Menu), Item Icon (TGI reference), Item Name (plain text) or Item Description (TGI reference)PNG with size 44x172 pixel (think you know this, since you have it already in your tool)LText files...oh yes, almost forgot, If you include the SC-native lots and transit elements, scan simcity_?.dat, EP1.dat and the correct simcity_locale.dat (in european version of SC there are several of them).andy
