Does anyone know of a tool that can show all signs in a downloaded world and can filter the results? I know of Kamyu's EditSigns tool and I've asked him twice if he can put in a filter feature in a future update but he jasn't replied so that's not happening but at least if his Edit Signs tool exists know it can be done.
I would like to be able to search all signs in a world or area from people selling gear so as to be able to work out what the cheapest of anything is or work out the average price so I can sell mine at a realistic price. I imagine typing in, say, "Bane" and getting all signs from people selling Bane swords.
I whipped up a very simple tool based on Substrate called SignTool. Try it out and see if it does what you are looking for.
It should give you output like this:
Searching for test in world C:\Users\Dan\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves\My World
Sign at: 1,72,2
This is another
Sign at: 1,71,3
This is a test
The search is not case sensitive. If you know that items are on line 2 and prices are on line 3, the tool could search for specific items and sort on price or whatever.
Here's the source code for SignTool:
