I guess I may as well tell you guys all these questions are because I'm working on SFA and getting stuff done.
Here's another one:
There is no external documentation keeping track of all the used NCBs. There is a notes file on important bits, such as storyline start/end, rank bits, etc, but there's no list telling me what bits are available to use.
I need to figure this out, here's my current idea, but I'm pretty bad with database stuff. Help me if you can please:
Use ConText to export all the missions, outfits, crons (that should cover all the bits)
Make some sort of script that runs through all the NCB fields and pulls out every bxxx/!bxxx, writes the xxx (number) part down somewhere, then removes duplicates and sorts them in ascending numeric order.
I really don't know where to start with this. As far as tools available, I have Excel, FileMaker, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and C++. Where should I start? What should I do?
