For the CMDRs by a CMDR. Created by CMDR Garud for an awesome gaming community. A big thanks to Jonathan Harris (Marginal) for creating the Python boilerplate code for the Discord Rich Presence SDK. Without his input, the plugin would not have been done. Special mention for the awesome group I am in, Knights of Karma, for their continuous support.

Add presence for CQC

Closes #24 It utilizes EDMC new (since release 5.2.0) plugin callback function journal_entry_cqc. I've done this patch about 10 Aug 2021 but only now PRing it. I'm not sure if code satisfies general plugin's code style, it may be worth to wrap text on translations, for example. Any advices, remarks, critique are welcome.

Display "On foot" instead of "Flying in normal space" if on foot?

Just installed the plug-in and using EDMC 5.1.3 (latest).

Add the ability to choose to display more extensive data about the system, pilot actions

I would like to see in your plugin the ability to select the information that the user would like to display in their Discord status.

Example: Star class Planet type Distance from the system that the user will enter in the plugin settings

It will be very cool, I will even be ready to support your work financially :3

Feature request: add presence for cqc

opened on 2021-05-07 14:30:58 by norohind

There is no right way to see if player in cqc from game journals. But I can suggest a few indirect ways: 1. LoadGame event without Ship field happening on enter in cqc from main menu (can be used to detect enter in cqc) 2. Music event with "MusicTrack":"MainMenu" happening when exit from cqc to main menu (can be used to detect exit from cqc)

This is not a problem, just a question. How do I make the pugin actively change the planet I'm on instead of " '<hidden>' "
