ed-fast-travel is a small helper utility to plan long-distance travels inside Elite: Dangerous.
You can download pre-compiled binaries on Github releases for your system.
Starting with version
ed-fast-travel does contain a GUI to be used through your browser. To use that one just start the command without any arguments (you may want to see the parameters for more adjustments but the defaults will work for most people) and it will listen on port 3000 on your local machine. To access the GUI just access
http://localhost:3000/ and you can start using it:
On the first start the initialization will require a few moments as the database needs to be downloaded and loaded into the application.
For all parameters available please execute the utility with
To get a route in plain text format you need to execute the tool using the console / cmd prompt:
As you can see you only need to know from where you’re starting and where you’re going. The number (500 in above case) is the distance the stops should be calcualated. I used 500 Ly as that’s a good distance for the ingame route engine to calculate a more detailed route.
ed-fast-travel contains an own updater and will print an information if an update is available:
2016/09/11 21:46:09 An update to ed-fast-travel is available. Run ./ed-fast-travel --self-update to update.
To update the local database with a fresh nightly dump from EDSM just add the flag
--update when executing the utility:
# ./ed-fast-travel --update 2016/09/11 17:21:56 No local EDSM dump found or update forced, fetching dump... Usage: ed-fast-travel <start system> <target system> <distance between nav points> Example: ed-fast-travel 'Sol' 'Dryooe Prou GL-Y d369' 500 This will calculate stops on your route from Sol to Dryooe Prou GL-Y d369 every 500Ly
The usage explanation appears because no parameters for routing are passed in that execution but the database now is refreshed. Please be nice to the servers and refresh only if you are sure you need to get new data and that there is new data. Refreshing multiple times a day does not give you any advantages as the database is only updated once a day.
