Does anybody know when the score breakdown will be released for the FRC Events API or TBA (The Blue Alliance)?
Our scouting system utilizes this data and we are unable to continue some development without this score breakdown. This is problematic for our testing and is delaying development.
According to the documentation for FRC Events API the score breakdown will be finalized within the first 3 weeks of February, and a preliminary score breakdown will be posted before then. However, it currently says, “more details will be announced later.”
If you know anything about when the API will be released or why it hasn’t been released yet, please let me know! Thanks!
I know one of the goals of the FMS data is to show everything scoring related. One field type I think they missed is the scale/switch control point (only 1 point). We get 1 point for controlling the scale/switch initially, plus 1 point per second of control. Is there a way that we can get how many times the scale/switch became controlled by a team? (we have total possession seconds already)
I also thought it could be cool if we could get a string like “n10r30n1b12n1r90” (neutral, red, blue, then how many seconds) to show who controlled the scale/switch for how long (all that data is automatically generated by the FMS already, no one would have to type it in).
PS: Everywhere that says 1 point in my message, it is 2 points for auto, it seemed clearer to list that down here.
Will the API include the switch/scale ownership WHEN the relevant force or boost power up is played? It will be guesswork to correlate them. Also, will the “ownership” include the playing of the force?
