An interface for viewing details about your Fleet Carrier in Elite Dangerous, and automatically guiding them on long trips.

CATS is an Elite Dangerous fleet carrier auto-plotter and flight computer.
This app also allows you to view stats about carriers across multiple accounts.

 

Features

Admin interface

* View name, callsign, credits, fuel, current system and other stats for multiple carriers.

* Manage as many of your own carriers as you want.

* View cargo and market data for your carriers.

* Get carrier data from Frontier's API.

 

Traversal system

* Automatic (or manual) jump plotting

* Tritium restocking

* Route time estimations

* Keeps track of jump time (in case a jump is longer than 15 minutes)

* Discord integration

* Import routes from the Spansh fleet carrier router

 

Limitations

* This only works on Windows and probably won't be ported to anything else.

* It also only works with PC accounts running on Odyssey (The admin interface also works with Live Horizons, but the traversal system is Odyssey-only for now)

* The traversal system currently only works on displays running at 1920x1080, assumes Elite is on your primary display, and assumes Elite is also running at 1920x1080.

* If you come across a problem, feel free to open an issue on GitHub or shoot me a message on Discord at mck#9061

 

Traversal system disclaimer

Use of programs like this is technically against Frontier's TOS. While they haven't yet banned people for automating carrier jumps, the developer does not take any responsibility for any actions that could be taken against your account.

Use of the admin interface without the traversal system carries no risk, as it's simply reading from FDev's API.

 

Privacy

By default, usage statistics are sent to the developer. You can opt out of this easily, just use the privacy button on the main menu.

 

Installation

Please see the GitHub page for installation and setup instructions.
