ED ToolBox

ED ToolBox is a companion web app for Elite Dangerous that runs on the user's computer, allowing a virtually real-time updating of location based data.

For instructions and downloads visit edtb.xyz.

Key features

  • Real time system and station data based on your in-game location (data downloaded to the user's system from ED ToolBox server, which in turn gets its data from EDDB)
  • General & System specific captains log
  • Two maps: Galaxy Map and a dynamically updating "Neighborhood Map", both showing your visited systems, points of interest and bookmarked systems + some other stuff.
  • Add Points of Interest
  • Bookmark systems
  • Find nearest system/station by allegiance, power, or what modules or ships they are selling
  • Read latest GalNet news
  • Screenshot gallery: screenshots automatically converted to jpg and categorized by the system they were taken in. Option to upload to imgur straight from ED ToolBox
  • VoiceAttack module: Meet "Marvin", the foul mouthed ship computer; get information about current system, closest station, latest GalNet articles + more with voice commands. Marvin really hates the Federation, so don't have any little kids or stuck up adults around when you're in Federation space.
  • A notepad for taking some quick notes (mission directives, kill orders, etc.)
  • Show currently playing song from Foobar2000 or any player that can store the current song in a text file, or from VLC Media Player using the web interface.

Requirements

  • Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 - 32 bit version

  • Latest version of Google Chrome browser recommended for optimal experience. Latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge also work but to a limited degree.

  • VerboseLogging needs to be on. To do this, locate your AppConfig.xml file.

    • In Elite Dangerous: Horizons the file is located in the elite-dangerous-64 folder, which is located in one of the following folders, depending on your install:
      • C:\Users%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Frontier_Developments\Products
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch\Products
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Elite Dangerous Horizons\Products
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\Products
    • In Elite Dangerous 1.5 it's located in the folder named FORC-FDEV-D-XX which will be located in one of the above locations, once again depending on your install.
    • Open the file in a text editor and scroll to the bottom. Replace this part:

      	<Network
      	  Port="0"
            upnpenabled="1"
      	  LogFile="netLog"
      	  DatestampLog="1"
      	  >
      
      • with this:
      	  <Network
      	  Port="0"
            upnpenabled="1"
      	  LogFile="netLog"
      	  DatestampLog="1"
      	  VerboseLogging="1"
      	  >
      
      • and save the file.
