Collected through botting. Therefore using it may go against the EULA. Do not take your chances.

Nice extraction. Thanks for taking the time to do it.

I presume you automated the UI and took screengrabs? (Judging by how Station - Borg Colony L 02 turned out)

How easy would it be to extract the descriptions and dimensions as searchable text? Is there something readable in the application? (through memory peeking or other means.)

Not exactly. The process can't be a fully automated until we don't have keyboard navigation inside the listboxes.
I used Wink in click signal mode. Clicked onto ALL objects, brought the mouse over the image and clicked again.
When that was done, I sorted/renamed the pics. Then removed the crap that was caused by STO's crazy mouse handling routines. Finally merged the images together into a stock format, made a simple webpage and uploaded the results.
This took 30 mins, with some adjustments.

The memory dump doesn't really work/takes way more time.
If someone happen to have a good bulk OCR app then he could run the images through it. I could then insert the resulting txt files into the database and assign the appropriate images automatically.

That, I can do fairly quickly. The images could be OCR'ed for their text content so they become searchable and filterable.
Awesome work!

That last one's a bit hefty.

Don't suppose you've got them as a compressed archive, so we're not eating up your bandwidth every time we want to check stuff?

Added space details. So that is about it. I won't do this with contacts/NPC. People will use own costumes anyway.
I've zipped the whole thing, so you can DL it from here:

Have fun with it!
