HAST Elite Assistant

Image of application in use

My gamer personality is firmly in the Explorer category so naturally Elite Dangerous offers some appeal, but I've felt hampered by the in game systems for navigation and exploration. There are other 3rd party applications out there, but none did quite what I wanted, and so HAST Elite Assistant was born.

My day job involves writing applications in WPF and C# so it was a natural choice for this application.

Latest Release

The latest release will always be made available here on Github.

Requirements

You can get SQL Server Express 2012 from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29062

ENU\x64\SqlLocalDB.MSI is the version you'll want unless you're on a 32 bit version of Windows in which case you can save a few MB and get ENU\x86\SqlLocaLDB.MSI

Finally you'll need to make sure your AppConfig.xaml found in your Frontier_Developments\Products\FORC-FDEV-D-1003 folder has VerboseLogging=1 set for the Network section similar to the following:

    <Network
      Port="0"
      upnpenabled="1"
      LogFile="netLog"
      DatestampLog="1"
      VerboseLogging="1"
      >

    </Network>

Current Features

The hotkeys I support are based on those of Elite Copilot:

Future plans

The current list of enhancements is a long one.

If you do choose to try the app, please feel free to log any issues you encounter. If you're lucky I might fix them eventually.

For anyone needing it, there is code in there to read data from EDDN but it's not currently in use.
