Character Planner Season 4
« on: February 01, 2022, 01:21:22 pm »
Hi, wastelanders :)

Here's a character planner I've been developing for some time:
https://fonline-reloaded-s4-geck.onrender.com

IMPORTANT: There is newer version being developed on a different domain -
https://geck.onrender.com
It provides Character Library (save/load builds) as well as a way to generate a link for any saved character build.
Please, be aware that this feature is still in development and it may contain bugs and errors.
Once this version is polished enough it will become the main planner and this post will be updated.


Open spoiler to see some images
Spoiler: show





Overview
  FO:R Character Planner is a simple web application which allows you to plan your Fonline Reloaded character build. It's a static app and it can be used offline.

Features
  • Supports all basic character modifiers (SPECIAL, Skills, Perks, etc.) as well as Implants, Books, Drugs, Boosts, Professions
  • Armor and Helmet slots – equip gear to see how it affects the stats
  • Simple Load functionality (see the spoiler for more info on how it works)
    Spoiler: show
    Each new build is auto-saved at level 0 (creation screen), level 1 and level 24 and it can be loaded at that point. Moreover, this feature keeps track of the last three level-ups, so you can load (revert) up to three levels back.
    Click on the gear icon in Actions panel.

    Choose which save to load.

    For now, this feature is disabled on character creation screen.


Upcoming
  • full Save/Load library for managing and storing multiple builds
  • improved responsiveness and layout for mobile devices
  • filling out all missing descriptions in the Info Panel
  • continuous bug fixes and support

How to use
  Online - You can use the tool online – just open the link above.

  Offline - You can also use it offline - just install the planner and use it like a native app. Works both on desktop and mobile. Here's how to do this:

  • Install on Chrome and Edge:
    Once you visit the site in your browser you will see an icon in the address bar which will allow you to install the application. Just click it and it will do all the work.
    Chrome:

    Edge:

  • Install on Firefox:
    Firefox has recently discontinued the support of PWA's (Progressive Web App – the technology which allows the app to be installed). Fortunately, it is still possible to use it as such – you
    just need to install a PWA browser extension manually (it's installation consists of few simple steps). Just follow the instructions here – https://techdows.com/2021/09/install-pwas-firefox-desktop.html.
    This is what you should see if the extension is working fine:
    - Firefox
    Alternatively, if you're on Windows you could use Edge to install it.
  • Install on Safari:
    Not tested yet. It should work out of the box. Any feedback from Apple users would be appreciated.

Notes
  • The planner is still in development and may contain surely has some bugs or incorrect information. Keep in mind that almost all of the data used to base the logic and calculations on is sourced from the wiki. Any outdated info there might be present in the planner as well.
  • If you're using the installed version, make sure you refresh it from time to time in order to detect any new content. There's an update functionality built-in in the Info Panel - the app should detect new content and prompt you to update it. Please, keep in mind that this feature is not always reliable - it can behave differently depending on the browser environment. If updates fail to appear - restart the app (close it and open it again) and/or do a hard refresh (Ctrl + F5 on Win)

Huge thanks to Henry, Medics, POWERPUFF and all other nice people who helped me a lot along the way!

So, that's it. I hope you enjoy the planner.
Once again, I would really appreciate any feedback/suggestions/bug reports/etc. you might have. Please, post in this thread, PM me or find me on Reloaded Discord - Arronax#9276
Thanks.

Version 1.4 update
« Reply #4 on: June 18, 2022, 04:55:58 pm »
Updated to v1.4
  • Added transition animations
  • Added Sight Range in CharStats [thx Eybiss]
  • Increased font size in CharStats [thx POWERPUFF]
  • Enabled Mystery Boosts

A note about the Mystery Boosts.
Most of them are confirmed to be working and are available while few may be outdated.
However, their requirements (as presented on the planner) may be inaccurate (not on purpose). Surely enough, some of their requirements are omitted (that's on purpose).
Any feedback on the validity/requirements of the mystery boosts will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Also, Sight Range might not work on your current save - you'll need to reset the build.
Weapon Range stat will be implemented once Weapon slots are also done.

Character Planner Season 4
« Reply #7 on: October 28, 2022, 01:15:06 pm »
A new major version of the planner is on the way. I uploaded it on a different domain:
https://geck.onrender.com/
One of the new features is the Library - you can now save your builds. Check the Control Panel.

Another feature - you can now generate a link of the build and share it as any other link.
Example (working) link:
https://geck.onrender.com/71a18a31277e/7b4131373i3d3e3g777c51-2d87a50635069506e-21v7273506r506u50-614506y506b_2228_2710-2io5g_282e_2e15-2dp_2i1f74757678797e7f7g7h

To do so - click the share icon on a saved character in the Library. The link will be copied in your clipboard.

I also want to add Presets tab in the Library which will contain predefined builds (like in the wiki) and I would love it if you guys help me with that.
It's easy - just create the build you would like to be included in the Presets, save it (preferably filling out most of the form) and copy it from the copy button, located to the right of the share button.
A string of text will be copied in your clipboard and you just have to send it to me - here as a private message or DM me in Discord.

Also, feel free to give any ideas and suggestions about these features - there is a lot of room for improvement. Thanks.

Please, be warned that this is still 'work in progress', so there might be more bugs than expected 😄
Until this new version is polished both planners will remain active. Once all is ready (which is soon) only this domain will remain active.

Hey, Henry :)
Thanks for the kind words, the preset builds and the feedback!
I'm currently abroad but I'll be back in a few days and I'll add the builds you posted right away.
About the name space - I agree, more space is better. I'll move the share buttons elsewhere to free up more space for the name, class and role.

I'm also thinking about adding a wiki article about the planner (it's getting more and more complex so a brief manual might be helpful) and I would love to get your input on that.

I'll message you here or I'll try to find you in game when I have something.
See you soon and thanks again.

Henry

A wiki page for a planner this good sounds good. I can help with that too.

Back when i was working on my offline planner, i included a way to save both builds and characters. They both had a name field. A character named "Punchy" might use a build named "Melee Specialist v1". When i loaded any character that was based on a saved build, the build would show in a field called "Based on the _____ build". If the character was, however, built freestyle and not on a saved build, tat field would default to "Original". The saved characters allowed the user to keep a record of various things specific to that character's performance/experience. Like i might save links to screencap images, and a log of PvP events, what factions he's been in and when he joined/left them, general notes, etc.

When i started a "New Character", i could click a saved build and BAM! that build's data would instantly auto-populate that character's stats. Name him, make a few edits and save.

But a new build might also be based on a prior build, so in each build i included the same field as above, named "Based on the _____ build". If it's truly new, again it would just default to "Original". That idea morphed into the concept of a Build Tree, which i imagined might be a graphic that looks a lot like a family tree illustration, with base builds at the bottom, and how they branch into subsequent builds.

Oh if i only had time for this...

I had the same initial idea :)
The root of the tree is the initial build (SPECIAL, Skills and possibly Traits) and everything that is applied to it is a variation (or a leaf node) and those can be forked easily into sub-variations.
But I decided to go as simple as possible for now. Although I already coded some things in such a way that it would be easier to develop a tree structure for the builds in the future. :D
Thanks for sharing this idea :)

The planner at https://geck.onrender.com was just updated.
There's nothing major - just several bug fixes.

I also added three presets in the Library, provided by Powerpuff (thanks).

Here's another one, meant as a team leader to get 4 human companion NPC followers:

{"buildString":"51a44a527fac","levelString":"9he8.7b4231373i3d3g3e50-22k63506972737c-22k506e-22a506r-22a50-2256b-2fk50-6147l-2fn7m7n506u-2iu506s7e-2ii56-2ic-2eu7g7h7f5a-2ef-2ct7i74_2a275a_2a1e-2875a_282i-2265a-2247t-27u5a-2fx5a-2fk5a-2fj-277#8undefined#82","level":100,"HP":262,"avatar":"CombatArmor","name":"Pyromaniac Captain","class":"Flame-Burst Team Leader","role":"Squad Combat","author":"Henry","notes":"Team Leader build, uses Incinerators +Pyro perk for big fire dmg, leads 4 NPC human Companion followers @Level 100, but gets these @Level 70: 3 NPC human companions, max Lockpick, glide over locker traps, max First Aid, Repair your own gear, fast map travel, Doc 100, multiple crafting professions. Tough and gets +7 bonus Hit Points via \"Mystery Boosts\". Give LSWs to your followers and have them run combat support from a distance."}

I hope this format is what you wanted. I have been using the JSON bottun.
