    New DataBuddy!
    The DataBuddy has been gutted of it's previous never-implemented functionality and has been turned into what is essentially SpoilerBot. It is now an encyclopaedia of every item, monster, costume, recipe, planet and port in the game and it will happily inform you what everything is, what it does and where to find or make it.

    Basically, I felt it was usually the case that people would look up stuff in the wiki habitually to figure out where things were and how to make them. Now that the Wiki is gone, DataBuddy now serves this purpose. Confusion isn't fun, eh? :D

    I have a question about the Trader entries in the data buddy. Are they updated everyday? cause the one in there for sector 78 (trader cal's) seems to be wrong, unless I'm just misunderstanding this

    the one i'm seeing in space buys and sells for much higher

    So the new Databuddy is pretty sweet, but I'm not seeing an easy way to get to it except by hitting the front page.

    Maybe a link on the Help page would be a good idea, possibly even in there with the "<< SSW Help Center | View All FAQs | Create FAQ Entry" links, and/or in the intro on that page. It many ways it supersedes the old Help page...

    There's a link in the "Your Stuff" drop down menu.

    Ah. So there is.

    I stand by my suggestion tho, just from a new-user-experience standpoint...

    Ok. Now up top where the "RADIO" and "L337 HUT" links were.

    No, there are just plenty of other ways to get to the hut. didn't seem like it needed to be a main menu item.

    Flambe miniquest is asking for a Tamal, which requires a corn husk. Databuddy doesn't say where the corn husk comes from. Is this something for a zone in development?

    You might try the most obvious thing. You're feeling hungry, right?
