Title: Time - List and Horoscope - List
Post by: Str88 on January 11, 2022, 10:02:07 PM
Hello, I'm trying to see in the list of transits (both in Time and Horoscope) some asteroids, as Pallas, Vesta; Ceres, Juno... is it possible?

No, objects like asteroids are later additions and not supported in list functions, there's only the Time menu with some functions.

Ok, thank you so much :)! Will it be added any time soon?

Not any time soon no, but it's still on my wishlist.

Another question related (I think) to this, to add for example the asteroids you have to modify the file .poi in Planetdance/cfg? I would like to try to do it by myself but I'm still learning to program so maybe my question isn't correct..

.poi are where the settings for options - points are stored.
Take your time to get to know the program, there's lots to learn before you want to start adding stuff.

I'm also looking forward to the addition of the asteroids for the future.
But I have another wish.
Couldn't the preview horoscopes from the calendar (control click) also be established in the time-list and horoscope-list?

You can click on a line and do Calculate in the List windows.

Yes I know that,
but with the small preview horoscopes I could quickly get an overview like with the brower.

I like these little control-click-windows,they are really great. :D

(Maybe you could use them to realise 4 radix next to each other?
That wasn't possible before because of the scaling, right?)

You're very creative :)

It's very frustrating when you have a lot of ideas,
and even the possibility (thanks to Astrobasic) of making them happen,
but unfortunately you have to realize that you don't have the talent to do it. :'(
The only thing I managed to do was change the Antiscia module and create a Contra-Antiscia module.
But I only had to change one line.

Hi Volker - from small things....That's exactly how I started with astrobasic. In fact, I was able to find a little bug in one of the scripts that Jean was able to fix, and then I thought about learning the script. Anyway, it does take a lot of time, but I'm not a professional coder like Jean, so I understand your view. Thanks for your on-going interest in all things Planetdance.

Best wishes. Ed

I dislike the word professional, it means 'someone who asks money for her work', well i don't, and to me it's a bit hypocrite because it suggest quality, but that's not it's meaning. I consider myself a hobbyist who had a good idea, to implement ab to make it easier to code for astro.
Thanks for the compliments though. :)

Hi Jean - yes - wrong choice of words! Nevertheless Astrobasic is an amazing achievement. Ed

Thanks Ed, and it waiting for you (hint hint) if you find time again. :)

Astrobasic was great to make, i still remember those days vividly. At one time i had the crazy idea of making the whole of planetdance one big script, so i was working on all kinds of menu functions. In those days Lotus and Wordperfect were popular and they had different kinds of menus and i wanted them all for astrobasic! :) But there were still fundamentals missing and i got into a terrible writers block, for weeks i could only read mail (no internet in those days, only fidonet). Then i started all over, doing a debugger along the way so i would always know what the script was doing. Great memories.
