Default T5 SectorMaker for OS X

SectorMaker is a Macintosh application for Traveller5 that facilitates the creation of sector star charts with subsector names, world details, political allegiances and borders, and trade and communication routes.

Sector, subsector, and world maps, and map printing, is made possible by the use of Joshua Bell’s POSTER API at the Traveller Map website. A big thank you to Joshua for providing this great resource for Traveller fans.

SectorMaker star generation and world creation features follow the rules in the Charting the Stars chapter of the Traveller5 Core Rules.

The zip file which contains the application, a sample sector, and a PDF manual can be downloaded from here.

My Citizens, Mercenary, High Guard, Scouts and Merchant Prince apps for CT (see previous threads) are also available at the same website.

Let me know what you think.

BTW, I'm one of those unregistered developers so OS X will seem to not let you run the app. That's a changeable setting in the Security system preferences or you can just right-click on the app, select Open from the contextual menu, and train OS X to allow this app to run.

Finally some osx software! Thanks!

Will there be a way to import sector data generated from here? http://www.heldenhaufen.de/T5/SectorMaker

If there is a specific format needed, I'll gladly collaborate on this with anyone interested. Just drop me a line.

Under 10.9, that only works if you do not have it set for the highest or higher security levels. You might need to go to the security control panel, and tell it to allow it from there.

Feature requests:
  • Add ability to click on world on map to get to world listing
  • add ability to generate/regenerate a subsector separate from the sector

Great start...

Thanks, all, for the suggestions. I'll consider them for the next version. I've got about 200 hours in this thing so far, so I think I'll take a rest now.

As per Far Future's Fair Use policy, I sent an email late last night to Marc letting him know about this app. He must be a night person and responded:

Super cool!

Love the visual interface. Really easy to use.

A few comments:

- Import sec files!

- Add worlds post-generation

- The list of worlds would be easier to work with on a subsector basis, or at least have a Show All/Show Subsector filter

- Holy grail: clickable map. Click on a world in the map, and see its details on the left. Click on an empty hex to add a world. You get the idea.

Art,
This looks very neat. I don't have 10.7 unfortunately, only 10.6 so it's a no go for me.
But I do have your CT apps and have been using them regularly for the past 2 years or so. Great software and thanks a million for your time, effort and dedication.

Thanks! The latest version of Xojo that I'm using creates modern Cocoa apps instead of the old Carbon apps that my character generators used. This requires 10.7 as a minimum. Time marches on!
