It has been about 5 months since I posted the first “Not a Game Update”. I have since fixed a few issues with the robot but it still doesn’t manage to grab everything in an update. So I have been working on a new website. Very slowly since I still don’t have a lot of free time.
The new website will probably drop wordpress all together while it is a nice and easy way to post I feel like it just doesn’t work with how I want the website to function. I have been wokring hard on new scripts that process the DLC files and can better detect update stuff. It isn’t perfect yet but it is also already much better than the current robot.
That is the basic unfinished layout I want. There is a lot of room for changes since it doesn’t have a spot for new Characters. However as you can see in the image there is some things with the price shown as crafted. The new script I wrote detects crafted items and prizes and displays them as such. The mockup images were take from my test site which is mostly functional.
A couple of the other things I wanted to try with the new layout is having the current splashscreen displayed while the page is loading.
Let me know what you think of the design. The plan was to make it not match in game but no overwhelmingly graphical either. I do want to keep the basic layout the game has which is why it looks similar still.
The new website might be a while away from showing up but I hope to have a beta version of it up soonish.
