Announcing Type 74 Electronic Observation Device Translation Project
The Type 74 Electronic Observation Device (Electronic Observer for short) is a custom browser application intended to help Kancolle players (much like Kancolle Viewer or KC3). I have begun a translation attempt to bring it to non-Japanese players of Kancolle, endorsed (but not supported) by Andante, the original developer of the project.
What does it do?
Internal browser with zoom, screenshot, and mute (independent of notifications)
Fleet status and condition
Docks, showing of ships in progress, results of development (even if failure)
Admiral status, including resources, rank, ship/equipment slots
Special combat features
Prediction of next node
Enemy fleet composition shown before battle
Display of battle results before battle conclusion (including MVP)
Display of HP remaining on boss gauges, critical damage warnings
Complete quest tracking (with full depth, not just Kancolle’s 50% and 80%)
Complete ship and equipment encyclopedia, including enemy data
Notification system (including sounds and customized notifications, even under Windows 7) for expeditions, morale, and repair
Sort-able equipment and ship lists
Savable record of drops, crafts, and more.
Most of all, the Electronic Observer supports complete user customization. See as much, or as little data as you’d like, organized the way you like it.
Additionally, the English translation project will add Region Cookie support for foreign players.
