Lately my station trades have been a bit… off. The prices would be close, but not nearly as close as they were. Not that I was getting losses, but my trading delta was shifting.
EVE-MarketData has a nifty compare function. So I ran through a basket of items and discovered that EVE-Marketdata is, for the most part, two weeks old. Almost universally two weeks old in fact.
And there it is.
If Tritanium is off… well, I need to find a new price source.
The thing I like about the Eve-MarketData feed is I can grab all market data for a station. Then I can just VLOOKUP to my hearts content. One pull, one big data set, is much faster than 1200 XML queries. With EVE-Central I have to do individual calls, no massive dump for me!
My only option is to either hope that the CREST Market Feed comes online, or retool to EVE-Central feeds. I’d like to use EVE-Central, but it’s going to suck to make all those calls for all those locations. (I query 1200 items in 8 market hubs) So yah, 9600 XML queries will make my spreadsheet shit the bed.
If you, the loyal reader, has any ideas or options, please let me know!
