    Hello,

    I would like to introduce you to PTRE (standing for "Paye Ton RE", excuse my french, name was found a long time ago).


    PTRE is a Spy Report sharing tool over Discord and IG.

    Some context


    Late 2018, after the last French merge, our favorite website related to sharing spy reports (Topraider) was down for weeks and was not able to manage V7 even after beeing fixed.


    So i decided to create a tool to share spy reports between friends. Only Spy Reports storage and a Discord bot to manage it. That was PTRE.


    Now, the tool has a lot evolved and its mature to be shared with the community, i guess. I did it a week ago on the French board (link : PTRE FR). Design is not really something i care too much about (i am not web developer, at all ^^), nice features and "easy to use" is what i want (and what you get).


    I did kind of 2 large tests on more or less 10 top alliances in October 2020 ans Mars 2021. It was well received, so i would like to share it here also so it could help you guys.


    Features :

    Here are some of PTRE features (all features can be found on the PTRE english splash page). Screenshots are in french, but the website has an English version.

    Teams

    PTRE allow anyone to create a team without personnal datas (such as email). A team can be a real alliance IG, or a group of friends or even one single guy. Connection to website is done via a shared Team Key (it will be saved into your browser).


    PTRE bot

    The PTRE bot can be invited by any Discord admin of your team server (no need for admin rights). Then, you just need to give it some access :
    - access to all channels
    - or only on channel "paye-ton-re" / "ptre" / "reports" (or whatever, name does not matter)

    The bot only gets API code and PTRE commands, nothing else (no flood). It is compatible avec AGRbot.

    Once installed, you need to match your Discord server to your PTRE team (its done by copy-pasting your API-WO key into a channel).

    Push from Discord

    Once configured, each and every API key posted will be uploaded to PTRE website in your private space.


    Discord bot will give some feedback statistics regarding fleet upgrade, ressources, etc.


    You may also post players banks, it will not be used as comparison when you will post full fleet next time.

    Push from OGLight

    You can also push Spy Reports directly from IG via OGLight addon (OGLight eng board). Thanks to nullNaN. He did not update his ENG post with new last version, screenshots and new features can be found on the OGLight download page. This tool is a must-have.

    To do that, you just need to add your Team Key into OGLight options and click on the "P" close to spy reports to upload it.

    Fleet evolution

    Once a Spy Report uploaded to PTRE, you can display details (french screenshots here, but its available in english).

    PTRE will display fleet evolution since last fleet update: global stats, stats for each kind of ship, and for ressources.

    Discord commands

    PTRE has a lot of discord command, you can:


    - do a research (pattern or exact search)

    - fleet flash feature: it will output a sumup of all scanned positions of a player

    - select a default univers to match all commands so other universe Spy Reports will not flood (you still may force research on other universe if you want)

    - display fleet top

    - display last reports

    - same commands with bunker (instead of fleet)

    Multi-team management

    PTRE can manage multi-teams into the same browser. That means you can save your PTRE Team Key for each and every universe you are playing and switch from a team to another with a simple click.

    Easy AG Simulator


    Easy AG simulator is a tool to manage huge team fight (like 5 versus 5 players) into trashsim without entering a single number into simulator. No need to add each and every kind of fleet type into Trashsim, PTRE will do it for you.

    You just need to upIoad each fleet into your private space and select your composition.

    No need to remove cargo, Deathstart, probes, etc of attackers, there is an option to do it.

    The tool can manage fleet "ungrouping" (dont know the correct term when you split your fleet to optimize combat versus Deathstars).

    I hope this tool may help other players too. At the start, it was only for our team, but it can be used by anyone now.


    Do not hesitate to give feedbacks or ask for features, i still work on it each weeks.


    Good game!

  • What's API-WO ? No worries, got this bit now.


    And, , when selecting default language as "en" it does not change language after you upload a probe API, it responds in French.

  • What's API-WO ?

    Hello @2 Pounds


    It is the key you need to copy past into Discord to associate your Team to your Discord.


    You can find it on the Team page if connected as Team creator / admin (connected via the Admin Key instead of the Team key).


    Hope it helps you. You may come over on Discord if you need any more help.

  • Hello,



    Here is an update regarding new features :

    [feature] User techs can be saved for each universe (instead of one set for all universes).

    [bugfix] Fix users techs sent to Trashsim.

    [display] V7 class is added to spy report and player profil.

    - You can check global status of players activities on the status page.

    - The player activiy graph is displayed on profil player page (link on the OGLight pannel)

    - You can use filter to display the graph (timeframe + WE or not)

    - Its a experimental feature, you can give us update on the PTRE Discord.

    - At the moment, its planned to keep 1 month of data, will see how it goes.

    - VM mode and other stuffs need to be added


    Here is how it looks like:

  • Hello,


    Little update. The project is still moving forward, even if not a lot a visible features have been done recently. Here are some new features requested by users:

    - The command !ptre !push can force the output channel of the OGLight push notifications, instead of sending it to the last used channel by PTRE.

    - You can now migrate a spy report from an universe to another one. It was asked in order to manage spy reports after a merge.

    - You can now rename your Team (for those who created a test team and finaly kept the Team ^^).


    In addition, as it was a lot requested too: i asked RiV from AGR to integrate the PTRE spy report push into his tool (like done in OGLight). He seems ok with it, its more a matter of time. Will see...
