Re: Intent to fork: PPAOCR (Pirate Commodity Trader with Bleach)
Just a quick update.

Both projects are now on github:

PACS - Market Scraper

The market data portion of the client is working. I am debating if I should remove the bid data as I don't see how it's useful in a trading tool (you would need to sit on a bid ticket for a bit,
at which point the dock prices might have changed). I have done a release if anyone wants to try it out. The upload won't work as it currently has no where to go.


  • Download and run the latest release of PACS.
  • Open the trading window or bid window in Puzzle Pirates (either from an island or a ship).
  • Capture the data using the "Capture Market Data".

Data is stored as json in %APPDATA%\PPAOCR\Commodities.json and has the following format:

"ocean": "OCEAN NAME",
"island": "ISLAND NAME",
"goods": {
"Sugar Cane": {
"buy_orders": [
"shop": "SHOP NAME",
"price": 5,
"amount": 375
"sell_orders": [
"shop": "SHOP NAME",
"price": 6,
"amount": 375

Merchant Almanac - Web Server

Not totally sold on the name. Not much has happened here as I would have liked, but this is my next focus.

Going forward, I won't keep updating this thread with development as I don't want to keep bumping it. If you want to follow along, keep an eye on the github repos.
