EDCodex is basically the on steroids website version of the third party tools thread by Wolverine2710.
Biobob kindly enough offered to create the website - which provides far more functionality.
Providing a complete overview of all available third party tools, interesting threads, community websites/wikis and videos - all four are called entries on EDCodex. You might ask why? Due to the way the FD forum works a lot of good entries gets snowed under and the authors do NOT get the exposure they clearly deserve. For casual forums users, getting an overview of all entries is nearly impossible. Something we think is very important, especially for those new to Elite: Dangerous.
Our vision for the EDCodex is a simple one:
- Collecting, storing of ED related entries and sharing it with the community.
- Any tool author, website, wiki, is encouraged to add or maintain content. An API exists and export functionality is planned.
- The EDCodex content is and needs to be a community effort. Any registered user can add entries. Authors of an existing entry can "claim it" and edit it.
Below an excerpt of the feature set of EDCodex and additional advantages for registered users.
Its our hope you like the EDCodex and help us to make our vision of it a reality.
