Ruby VGAP Viewer (RVV)

Name: Ruby VGAP Viewer Author:  Kero van Gelder
Type: Utility Website: Ruby VGA Viewer Homepage

Ruby VGA-Planets Viewer is a flexible, colorful viewer for VGA Planets data. It performs a role similar to that of Echoview, although with less features and functionality. The Ruby viewer is made for X11 based systems; it uses Ruby-Wise, which means it will only run on X-Windows systems for the moment. Porting to other toolkits shouldn't be hard.

Current functionality consists of viewing planets (including bases), ships, minefields, explosions, wormholes and most information on ion storms. It can also partially predict a hostrun (Host only). The aim for the Ruby Viewer is to show information which is not seen in an overview in JVC or JVPC (the two clients that work on non-Microsoft platforms). It should help when doing economics and laying mines, as well as showing all information about enemy ships that's available.
