Online Character Creator

posted Apr 03, 2016 16:46:39 by ChristofferLundberg
Hi folks!

I'm working on an online tool for creating Infinity characters. It is still in BETA and probably ridden with bugs and other problems. Please write any feedback in this thread and I will look at it. Any help is appreciated.

You can find the tool at this address: http://infinity.modiphiusapps.hostinguk.org/

Uploaded an update today with performance optimizations and bug fixes, so if you experienced problems with the tool during the weekend, please test it again and let me know if the experience is better for you now.

Are you planning a character creator for Conan?

Yes, I am indeed :)

It will be a bit simpler as the character creation process for Conan is not as advanced as in Infinity and Mutant Chronicles.

Thanks!

Yes, I look forward to starting the Conan tools. But first I need to fix those errors with the Infinity tool ;)

I've done a lot of mucking around with the creator, and most of the issues I've emailed to you.
Most recently I decided to try the 12 LP path and felt I didn't have as much control as the PDF would imply. After I'd done 4 career paths, created my geist, it wouldn't process the next button on the Final Tweaks step. The loading image would pop up for 0.1s, then nothing. If I clicked next again, it would add the talent to my Character profile again, but not actually continue =/
I can post screenshots if that'll help.
I imagine this might be a log of the issues I run into :D

Okay, it's bugging out on me lots this afternoon. Rolling Ariadna randomly seems to ALWAYS get stuck on home environment. Can't click on youth event. The loading square comes up and never stops.
Also, once I roll Ariadna once, the next new characters seem locked into Adriadna.
I used a LP to pick Haqq on the next go, and got stuck on Youth Event again. :( The loading square came up, but never proceeded.

Also, please keep any feedback here. It is easy to lose a mail amongst the ~30 I get each day :)

Still rolling only Ariadna this morning and still stuck before Youth Event. :( It's stuck for everything, even the 12 LP choose the path. Only thing I've not tested is dogface, since I've never passed that roll.

-----------------------------

On the Birth Host step, once you take away a point, you have the choice to add it to anything, even if it's at 8, only it doesn't add the point, but it stays taken away with no way to fix.

Agility------7-->6
Awareness****7 7-->6
Brawn--------7-->8-->8
Coordination*7
Intelligence-7
Personality**7
Willpower----7

I was finally able to successfully roll dogface (though I'm not convinced it took the LP appropriately as I had spent 1 on a stat upgrade, then rolled and still had 2 LP). Ariadna, Rodent, Hyper-elite, Rebellious - STUCK :(

It works again today. Rolled a Haqq char. Took medicine, disc, and science as my signatures. Picked the "emergency doctor" as my first talent in the chosen medical career path. Then I rolled body guard, continued it, then went medical again. When I went to choose my talent, I had odd options. For medical, I could only take Field Dressing and Self-treatment. It wouldn't allow me to take Emergency Doctor (which is good since I should already have it), but it would also not allow me to take miracle worker or trauma surgeon. Looking closer at the Skills PDF I see that it's because the tree graphic and the descriptions are at odds. The tree branches off Emergency Doctor and the text off of Field Dressing.... After I had selected Field dressing, I was able to choose Field Surgeon, but still not Miracle worker (I met the prereq). Regardless, when I pulled up my character sheet at that step, it told me that I had the Haggler and Magnetic Personality talents, though I'd never chosen them. On the final touches screen, it was back to proper talents. :S

It's definitely not taking proper LP for the career phase as well.

On the final tweaks step where you can increase from 0-1, it's letting you increase anything (to the cap). I can go from 1-2 or 2-3.

Export to PDF worked! Even straight opening it! Took a while though (about a minute). As you mentionned, it's a placeholder, so I don't want to tear it to shreads, but a lot of the character sheet wasn't populated the best. Languages, doubling of equipment, not populating the weapons fields,

Rolling next career, I had to pass a D1 hazard or get fired. I rolled, failed, the screen never changed. So I rolled again, succeeded, and apparently wasn't fired....

Next roll I chose Nomad and went through the Extraplatenary tree. During the 2nd time through my ship crew career, I went to choose EVA expert, but it was not an option despite the fact that I met the prereq. The Character sheet was also not properly populating during this step. By the end of the process, I had unlocked all of the Extraplanetary skill, but I still did not have access to EVA expert or Gravity Savant. Oh, and it got stuck on Final tweaks =/

The electives seem to be missing the expertise occasionally during the career phase.... (I think this is due to maxed expertize, though this happens nowhere else and could easily lead to confusion. Just leave it and state "max")

It let me take 2 ranks in Maya wired.

If you roll twice on the random languages table, it's possible for you to get no new languages :(

The B18 adolescent event doesn't populate for the lifepath characteristics on the character sheet (just says B18). Doesn't show additional ranks of a skill on the PDF.

Well, that's it for testing today. Rolled Dogface (no LP were taken) and got stuck on youth event with Ariadna again. Seems to be a trend! :'(

I rolled Ariadna and it worked!!! Happy day :D

It's happened twice that I've hazarded a 2nd career, failed and been forced into unemployment instead of repeating my last career. :(

In the geist step, anytime I put 3 points in a single skill, when I allocate the 4th, + buttons stay visible for Animal Handling and Close Combat expertise, but are not clickable.

Going through a 12LP creation, I chose O-12. When I got to Adolescent event, it jumped to the continue career page. I was confused, think I got someone else's build since the sheet said Merc and none of my choices.... I then hit "continue career, hazard" and my sheet was back to mine :S

It appears as though the + no longer appears when a skill is maxed in Mandatory, but that the expertise disappears in the optional section if maxed. This is very confusing.

In the final tweaks, I would guess that it's populating skills that don't have a 0 in BOTH expertise AND focus, but it's still allowing you to add a point to either (even if the expertise is not 0). (Got stuck on final tweaks again)

Got stuck on final tweaks (not sure if it's relevant but it was custom char again, and didn't assign stats in last step)

Analysis and Athletic trees seem good. Though I got stuck on final tweaks again (12 LP). The custom career is ALWAYS getting stuck on final tweaks.

If you take a signature skill right up to 5 expertise, you cannot go from 4 to 5 focus in the elective skills (for education at least).
