Russian version of the plugin description

Triumvirate plugin for EDMC, developed by Close Encounters Corps faction, is an important part of the overall ecosystem "Gehirn" (server-website-plugin-discord), acts as a universal tool for collecting and processing game data, allows you to track the influence in controlled faction systems, pinpoint tasks for the user on BGS, coordinate the work of pilots, notify colleagues about abnormal situations in long haul flights. In the future, this plugin will receive a number of improvements designed to further optimize the work of pilots in the vastness of the Galaxy.

Confidential user information, system characteristics and non-public personal data are not collected, stored or processed as a matter of principle.

Pay attention:​

The functionality is guaranteed on Windows 10 and Windows 11 systems and NOT guaranteed on Windows 8 and below. Supports two user interface languages, Russian and English International. The EDMC Triumvirate plugin is strongly NOT compatible with the EDMC-Canonn plugin, EDMC-USS-Survey and the outdated EDMC-USS-Survey-Triumvirate-edition. The EDMC-Canonn plugin was originally integrated into Triumvirate, and we have also integrated transfer of collected scientific data not only to Canonn servers, but also to the addresses of other scientific organizations. A system of issuing and accounting for completed missions within the framework of the activity against the Club is working.

Plugin features (will be updated as improvements are made)​

Element for receiving commands from the user​

The /sos command​

After the pilot will write in the game chat command "/sos" (in any register), the plugin will generate and send to the faction discord chat* (in a specially designated channel) a data packet with the location, amount of fuel, location and time to empty tank. Thanks to this data, a pilot in a dangerous situation will be able to get fuel and will be refueled in a timely manner.

*If you are an independent pilot (according to the plugin), your request for help will be forwarded to Close Encounters Corps

Element of the orienteering system (aka Patrol)​

The guidance system is used to navigate to points of interest and includes:

  • Location of your ships. A tool that gives real-time information about the location of your ships. Adding a compass/GPS-like function for visual flight to points of interest is under development.
  • Automation and transfer of all system functions to track fractional influence levels in controlled systems for analysis and processing to fractional servers is in the works. This tool provides a brief informational summary of the state of the systems with our faction presence. For faction leaders there is a function of manual assignment of tasks for specific systems to be issued directly to the plugin and the possibility of semi-automatic issuance of tasks for the curbing of negative statuses.
  • We are working on adding the function of orbital navigation and following the specified coordinates with the output of reference information about the known points of the route.
  • Working on adding a function to send data about the commander's ships to the server and the site to give location information on the interactive map in real/ pseudo-real time.
  • Adding a feature to give out information about your carrier ship's location, list of its characteristics and fuel tank fill-up is under development.
  • Adding a "friend-or-foe" identification system to determine if you are facing a partner, ally, or enemy/neutral.
  • Working on adding a distance-to-behind feature to the SRV.
