I'm a big user of the wiki, but there are times I'd like to "take the info with me", when I'm offline for extended periods. This is particularly a problem when I want to do some browsing of the galaxy maps. Yes, there are spreadsheets available, but using Excel makes me feel like I'm at work. Besides, I much prefer the way the "New Galaxy Guide" arranges things, with sortable tables and clickable maps.
I've been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally got around to converting the script I used to update the wiki with all the extra chart information to output instead as HTML. The result was quite good, I thought, so I thought I'd share what I've come up with.
This is essentially a local copy of most (but not all) of the information on the wiki in the New Galaxy Guides. I limited the data to just the basic system information, plus routes and regions. The wiki is still the place to get the final word on systems and their contents. The wiki is also the only place you can do a galaxy-wide search (although you can probably do a file search to achieve the same thing.
I put things together into a HTML5 website, which should work OK in most browsers. I've tested the latest Chrome, Firefox, IE and Edge browsers, and the only thing that doesn't work in IE and Edge are the collapsible sections (those browsers don't support the new details/summary tags).
Anyway, here's a link for the download: OoliteGalaxyMaps.zip
. Unzip into a folder and double-click on the "OoliteGalaxyMaps.html" file to start it up. The download size is about 19mb. I'm not planning on hosting this anywhere - this is just for offline use.
