    As anecdotal as that sounds, it could be the case.
    I know where you're coming from on that, but fortunately I have a pattern to my reboots. Work computer gets rebooted every day. Home computer once per month. Yet it happened on both computers several times on different days.

    One more thing that needs updating from the 3.14.02 version is the set of Warforged Healer's Friend enhancements. Instead of improving the incoming base healing amount by 15, 20, and 25 percent for a cost of 2, 4, and 6 action points respectively, the tiers have now been improved to 10, 20, and 30 percent for a cost of 1, 2, and 3 actions points.

    Just to bring everyone up to date:

    Although I'm still working very hard on my other project, which is perpetually behind schedule, I have managed to set aside some hours in the day to work on the planner, which I know has gotten neglected as of late (these hours are actually coming from my job time, not my game project time, since my job is slowish right now).

    With that in mind, I want to get caught up. Not only with updates from what the DDO devs have done, but also with some long term projects I had in mind for the planner. This is the general idea behind what I intend to do with the next four releases of the planner

    1. Levels 21-25 (no EDs) - This is almost done. We're just integrating in the last of the Epic feats now, and there are a few bugs fixes to make. But I'm hoping to get this out sometime this week.
    2. Printout overhaul - With the addition of five more levels, the printout is now virtually unusable. It was originally designed when there were 10 levels to this game, and as we've scaled up, it's become plagued with more and more problems. My feeling is that it is critical to have this functional again.

      I'm going to be breaking down the printout into two distinct sections. A) A snapshot of the character at a given level [similar to what you would have in PnP D&D], and B) A leveling guide, which gives step-by-step instructions for what to do at each level. Each of these will be printable independently of the other (so if you only want the snapshot, you can do just that).

      I will start this directly after the Epic Levels update comes out. I don't expect it will take all that long to do.
    3. EDs - With the third update, we will add in the EDs. The exact structure of how this will work we are still discussing. If you guys have any thoughts....
    4. Forum output overhaul (templates) - This one will allow you to customize the forum output to your own tastes. You will be able to save a template and use it for all your characters. If particular template files become popular, we can even add them to the base planner download for everyone to use. We will have a couple of default templates which will look more or less like the current output to start off with.


    So that's what's on the burners. Of course, maintenance releases may be put out in between these, if there are serious bugs to squash.

    Is it possible to work in a more minimalistic forum output (refering to you mentioning there will be multiple ways to do so in a future update)

    Something similar to this:

    Code:
    True Neutral Dwarf Wiz12/Fighter6/Rogue2 PM2/SD1
    
    Str 16 (Any additions here) = Final Ability score here
    Dex 16 (xxxxx) = Y
    Con 16 (xxxxx) = Y
    Int 14 (xxxxxx) = Y
    
    Skills: Intimidate, Concentration, UMD 
    
    Level Order: Rogue 1, Wiz 2-8, Fighter 9, Rogue10, Wiz 11-15, Fighter 16-20
    
    Feats
    
    1 Toughness
    2 Extend (W)
    3 THF
    6 Empower, SF: Necro (W)
    9 GSF:Necro, Shield Mastery (F)
    12 Combat Expertise
    13 Maximize (W)
    15 Mental Toughness

    I'll do my best to make this a possible template.

    The template system both excites and terrifies me, because I will essentially be writing a small compiler to turn your commands into forum output syntax, which is a scary sort of thing to write

    The way I envision it going, I will start off with the basic commands, and add more over time (depending on what people request) to make it increasingly flexible.

    This wonderful build has it's post a little longer than yours, but it does show the class chosen by level and the feats chosen in order. It is done my minimizing the "checkbox" choices on the Forum Export function. I foresee that if Ron does enter the style of template that you have demonstrated, it would likewise have the "checkbox" choice to do your minimal style...of which I approve.


    *BTW for any new players...my "build" is for demonstration purposes only...please for the love of the game don't roll one!

    The template system both excites and terrifies me, because I will essentially be writing a small compiler to turn your commands into forum output syntax, which is a scary sort of thing to write

    The way I envision it going, I will start off with the basic commands, and add more over time (depending on what people request) to make it increasingly flexible.
    Why not start with a basic keyword/token replacement parser? Use plain text files with embedded BBCode tags and your defined keywords that the users make themselves. It would be highly flexible and guaranteed to generate tons of support requests.
    The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)

    Strip out the BBC commands. Then you have a clean version. Guild portal (which a lot of players use) can't use it and it comes out looking like ****.

    But given how things are now with the store... Ron would you accept store gifts? TP codes, pets? Tricks? etc.?
    How about in game items such as scales, scrolls, pots, etc.? (if we are on the same server.)

    You don't have to worry about taxes that way.

    I don't know how he would feel if his side project has a donation button for people to donate to that because of the planner. I don't know how those (if they exist) finances are handled.

    Maybe a charity we could donate in your name?

    Obviously, I'm just brainstorming.

    Yep.

    For my GuildPortal page I start the Forum Export then highlight the text Ctrl-C and then Ctrl-V into my GuildPortal forum post.

    Hmmm, a donate button for my other project is something I would consider (Gods know we need a budget for that poor game, heh). Sort of like a home-grown kickstarter. But I won't connect it to the planner in any way. If people wanted to donate because of the planner work I've done, that would be fine, but I don't want people thinking they need to donate to support the planner, if that makes sense.

    I'll consider that (and look into it, I'm not sure what the tax implications are).
    The locus of my identity is totally exterior to me.
