    Sector World Module Creator

    Morning Folks,

    Got a bit carried away.

    Here's a NodeJS script that talks to TravellerMap and builds a /mod based on the data, all modified (as much as possible) to fit in with MGT2.

    https://github.com/madbeardman/fgmgt...a/tree/develop

    Use the develop branch, and feel free to modify it. It's quite crude and really does need a major refactor, I just tasked myself with getting it to build MOD's as well as the data format I need for the official books etc.

    I should have been working on v1.1.3 but hey ho.

    If people make use of this, please note that you can't use the data generated to sell modules, it's for personal use and within your game. If you generate modules for free, for people to use here, you'll have to include the far futures license. Your google foo should be able to locate that.

    If you think of something else you'd like it to do, then please comment below.

    Cheers,
    MBM

    Hi,

    Firstly thanks for the utility. Bit of a learning curve to use but really excellent results.
    However, and you knew that was coming, there seems to be an issue with The Beyond Sector.
    It gets as far as the I’Sred*Ni Heptad Subsector and then produces an error

    (node:5336) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0

    followed by a bout a page of error message, which I can post if you need it.
    Maybe the * in the sector name is causing an issue.
    Know this isn't a priority and this is more of an FYI

    Thanks for letting me know you're using it!

    So this is meant to let you import data from travellermaps into FGU?

    Yes, it's a great little utility. Needs a bit of set up to get it working.
    You will need
    node.js
    GitHub
    Windows Terminal
    All are free d/ls. Once set up it will generate sector information in .mod form to use in FG and FGU.
    I encountered an issue with one sector, but have imported 5 others. It should work for all of them

    Hi Folks,

    I'll be putting a bit of time into this during the week (fixing the bug that Dtom1962 discovered is Number 1).

    You can also run this on Mac/Linux, NodeJS works on all OS's, just make sure it's v12.

    I've been toying with the idea of creating a simple UI where you choose your options and select the Sector from a list. Plus select if you want MgT2E or T5 outputs.

    Cheers,
    MBM
