LOL it picks up on key words, I tried using one I didn't think was covered. Seems I got it wrong. I'll dig deeper and find a clear key word to use. the entry your searching for will read like this :

Wreckage Located (item_name) - Item added to Ship Store


Of course it will only list items found since I added the code snippet this morning.

Give me five to fiddle with the code for a clear key word for it to locate them.

OK edited it slightly - its now looking for the keyword 'Wreckage' from the phase stored. Hopefully thats not used in the log files lol. Yes I could look but that's a VERY VERY big file :)

Now I'm only showing wreckage located items...which is perfect!

granted, the other way didn't bother me at all, I could still see the wreckage located items which was good too, but now it's even better. big big thanks coops...it's a small thing but has always been frustrating to me as a screen reader user and someone who does quite a bit of combat.

This entry is not inserted into the Captain log and can be found under 'Combat Loot'. I've added that reference to the top of the list. I'll look into the mining page but I need to be careful with some fo this as its not as simple as it may appear on the surface :)
Could you add (to logs) Items from Loot Probes too? ( I know I repeat myself, but I feel I wrote it unclear before). also

Mining has changed, is it possible to see mining MISC loot in logs too?

If it is possible, ofc, and if community Show interest in that, lol
