No really. If VPA can understand Informer info, you can get Echoview to send the Informer info, but from what I can see VPA does not support that or any other import.

What kind of info should be imported, that is not already available within VPA? Can you specify?

I don't remember exactly why i needed it.And probably wasn't important because i don't remember i needed it afterwards.

Nevertheless since i mention base owner, maybe the possibility of changing the base/planet owner so that i could have a better picture in VPA.

Or maybe a feature more important... If i want to send information to an ally that uses EV and WinPlan and i use EV and VPA, if he sends me the EV data, i could have a way to import it to VPA. Echoview has an export to dbf file which excel reads and can convert to cvs.

OK, never thought about that, because since i use VPA I have never ever opened EV anymore. ;)

Maybe i import functionality from EV in VPA, that is needed.

What kind of information shall be shared? With Shift-F3 almost all data can be shared within VPA users.

Write an plain import is not too difficult, but to make it comfortable costs time and efford.

I think the most important is information about other races , ships and planets

hm, if your start VPA every turn (may be in /b natch mode) you do have all these information - or does EV has more data?
If yes, which data and then I have to look how i can implement an import and which data makes sense.
