    I added "unvisited" as a command to select a random planet from the set of known "public" planets that you have not yet visited. You can specify a difficulty range.

    I considered making it a goal, rather than a command, but it's not actually something you are looking for; it's a way to start from a different list of planets.

    On the other hand, if it WERE a goal, you could say "unvisited, space baby", for example.

    I'm torn, but my intended use is in place of "random" - i.e., I don't want to always select the hardest, as is done with goals - so I'll leave it as this for now.

    Revision 166. That also detects spreadsheet planets that claim to have more than one kind of ancient ruins and treats that as simply "detected".

    Thanks for this, I'm still using the GingerBread script daily and I'm going to see if this'll get me the primitive alien drops.

    Happy New Year!

    Revision 168 has a couple of things

    1) the quest step 3 unlocking items (Space Baby baw-baw, space pirate treasure map, Procrastinator locker key) are now reported as "shinies". They are probably not your end-goal, but they do indicate that you can get the appropriate skill book tomorrow, if you wish. Two out of three of them are tradeable, and there are a number of them in the mall, all for insanely optimistic prices; why would you offer them for a higher prices than the corresponding skill books are on offer for?

    2) SpacegatePlanetsVeracity.txt and SpacegatePlanetsAuxVeracity.txt have a bunch of new/corrected/updated planet data that my 5 characters discovered in December. Two are currently going for "unvisited" (to correct planets from the public spreadsheet) and two are going "random" (to add brand-new planets).

    My main is also doing "random", although when 2019 Standard rolls out, her participation in this exploration will only happen in the short aftercore before diving back into the ascension wheel.

    Code:
      Today's encounters on the planet at coordinates NNSBRVC (Pi Wallace II)
      Cool     Space Rocks: 2
      Recovering the Satellite: 2
      Space Cave:     1
      Spant drone: 83
      Spant soldier: 1
      large     hostile animal: 1
    My character ran out of adventures while the script was running. The script appeared to stall and I had to use ESC to get out of it. After generating some turns, it completed the planet just fine. However, it appears the 'stall' was actually a loop somewhere (I haven't looked at the script yet) that was continuing to increment things after I had run out of adventures?

    edit:
    probably relevant...

    Also, I am curious...if I run these coordinates again tomorrow, will the new data overwrite this data?

    I am sure it just loops while burning down energy, which is only recorded for successful encounters. I'll put in a "you have available adventures" check as well.

    If you re-run the same coordinates, it will overwrite the previous data.
    Or perhaps it will merge it in: if you found all Spant drones today and all Spant soldiers tomorrow, you SHOULD end up with Spant drones + soldiers.

    I'll look at both of those things.

    Revision 169 will not try to adventure if you are overdrunk or out of adventures.
    It will also stop adventuring if you run out of adventures while energy remains.

    If you rerun it after gaining more adventures, it looks like it updates the planet data with only what the new turns gave you. Since I save the earlier encounters for today's visit in _SpacegateEncounters, seems like I could simply reapply those encounters to the initial planet data before doing new adventuring.

    I'll look at that now.

    Revision 170 should do that.
