One more voice of thanks to add to the wind.

Also two feature creep ideas.

A selector to limit the results of agent types displayed/returned. R&D/Story/Advisory/?/ALL(default)

Would it be possible to add the highest Level/Quality actually accessible next to each company name. Saves the step of clicking thru companies to locate the best available.

great tool - simple, clean and to the point. one suggestion i would make (probably already made) - perhaps a color code on the bar indicating whether any of the agents are available to you based on api (green vs red or something), and perhaps some aggregate info in the bar, e.g. total # of agents, # available to you, and a breakdown by level.

thanks again!

I must say you have a great tool (As the actress said to the bishop!)

a couple of questions if I may?

1) Are you accepting isk donations from Alumni who use the tool?

2) Would it be possible to keep focus on one particular Corp after a re-scan if you change system or size of scan rather than have it default to the top? This would help people trying to grind standings for R&D, perfect refine, jump clone access, Pos Anchoring etc........

Oops, it appears that a previous forum lag didn't post my earlier response. XD

- Aggregate information in accordion titles: This should be doable. It may take some time, though, as I'm currently doing some other (non-EVE/E-UNI) projects and trying to make up for some major isk losses from a few weeks back.

- Same-corp focus between scans: I'm not sure if this is possible, because it will have to be a function of the lib that I'm using. I'll look into it, though. I agree that it would be handy, as often I'm interested in the same corp between multiple scans.

- Donations: I don't openly ask for donations, but I also wouldn't turn any down, hint hint. :)

Agent Rangefinder 2.0.2 update:

- Agents with Locator Services are now prefixed with a ">" symbol. Find your nearest accessible Locator Agent!
- An "L#" indicator in the Corp Title Bar shows the highest-level Locator Agent found within range. However, they may or may not be accessible; you must check the agent list.
- Accordion titles now also show faction standing.

Forgot to include in 2.0.2 update:

- Tooltips show mission type breakdown for different agent divisions.

Is that not going to be a redundant feature soon? From what I watched at FF it seemed as if they would just be having 1 type of mission for each division, so security gives kill, mining gives...well mining etc....

Or did I misunderstand this and it is simply coming soon(TM)?

It will be a more simple feature soon, anyway. :) As I understood it, an agent belonging to a certain division will provide only a single type of mission. So I'll change the tooltip text into "100% some-type". But it will still be something.
