Have you ever wondered what it would look like to mix Invader, Conqueror, and Annihilator gear together? Maybe you don’t have that one piece of Sovereign, and you want to know what your armor template would look like with it in there. Like many, you probably have an Excel workbook which sums up all the bonuses on your armor. I know I had one.
With technology on the web, why isn’t there a way to build an armor template online, using all the items in the game? I wondered the same thing. That’s why I created The WARdrobe. Maybe you’re at work and can’t log in to run trial-and-error builds, or maybe you don’t have Excel.
That’s not a problem now. With The WARdrobe’s Armor Builder, you can do just that. Simply select your armor from the list and watch your template come together. Yeah, it really is that simple. No, it isn’t done yet. I’ve been working hard to get the basic functionality working, and we’re in a good spot. How about a quick Q&A:
Q – I don’t see all the armor in there. Where did it go?
A – I’ve written an addon that will allow someone to log equipment to the website in a few easy steps. While the process is functional, the community aspect isn’t, yet. Expect some updates in the future that will allow you to upload items.
Q – My stats look really low. What gives?
A – The WARdrobe currently doesn’t handle the following: Weapons, Talismans, Tactics, Potions/Liniments, Buffs. Don’t worry, they’re in the works.
Q – It would be really cool if you XXXXXXX. When will you do that?
A – I’m open to adding items to my development list. Throw ideas in the comment section, and I’ll see what I can do. I already have a to-do list a mile and half long, so it might take some time to get to them. Some items may be technically infeasible, but that list should be pretty short.
Q – I found a bug! Ha! Why do you suck?
A – The development staff here is a whopping… me. Bugs happen. Let me know about it though, and I’ll get it on the radar to be fixed. There shouldn’t be any show stoppers right now, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t.
Q – Why does it always go back to the Choppa?
A- Because I had to pick one class and “Git ‘er done.” It takes a little bit of time to go in and setup the various armor sets, base stats and the likes. I’ll be opening up more and more classes as time goes by. I hope to have them done over the next week or so, depending on time available.
Q – Why do your graphics look like crap?
A – I’m a developer, not a designer. If you have an eye for graphic design and/or web stuff like that, let me know. 😉
Q – Where are the ads?
A – No ads. The only time I’d put up ads would be if I had to pay more for hosting than I do right now. I don’t know if that will ever happen, so I won’t say “no ads, ever”
Q – How do I get to the friggin’ site already?
A – Best question yet. The main page can be found here: http://wardrobe.war4scrubs.com. To hop directly to the Choppa Builder, go here: http://wardrobe.war4scrubs.com/ArmorBuilder.aspx?Class=CHP
That’s all for now. Feel free to ask more questions down below, in the comments. I’ll do my best to answer each and every one of them. I’ll keep posting some news over there on the default page (as well has here, for major announcements).
Enjoy the beta. I told you last week that I’d have something today. 🙂
