The EDMC-Canonn plugin will help you keep up to date with Canonn News, direct you to things of interest in the game and will capture data that will enable us to catalogue the mysteries of the Galaxy.

Data captured through the plugin will be made available from our database and API as well as displayed on charts and galaxy maps.

We aim to automate data capture as much as possible and will give you options that will allow you choose what user interface elements you want to interact with.

What's New

  • Changed Organic Scan Distance Calculator to track nearest instead of just last distance
  • Changed the parameter for low density rings
  • High value planets updated to use Matt G's formula
  • Ringed Stars exclude Dwarfs when got from the journal
  • Suppress Signals that are likely to be old Horizons data
  • Change nagging sounds to mp3 from wav
