So why do we use basic text instead of PDF or data files?
We prefer text for a number of reasons. First of all it is handled easily by all mail protocols. It is small and easily compressed. All the data that you need is represented and is relatively easy to find.
This though is just the start. By using this approach, it is much simpler to manipulate this data at the player's end.

The Order Editor
We have developed a tool that can strip raw text from text files and present it graphically. So the map you see here can be imported onto the data archive in order to produce a graphical map.
This editor uses a parser that will be upgraded and can even be manipulated by players in order to generate virtually anything they want. We are looking at overlays of mineral data on planet maps, reports accounting for many positions and even combats being shown graphically. Over the coming years, efforts in this area will far outweigh anything that can ever be achieved through the use of PDF's and data transfer.
