Thank you, Pharis.  You just said better what I was trying to say.  Eye candy should enhance the game without causing someone to need a monster PC to play it.  But these days, it seems to me...that the young want the monster eye candy and that is the only thing that qualifies something as a good game.  Storyline and pot mean nothing to the eye-candy addicts.

I agree an overhaul cpould be a very good thing...as long as it does not cause everyone who does not have and cannot afford a monster PC - to be unable to play it.

I am, as I said an old-schooler and I LIKE simplicity.  I am more interested in a game with an engaging storyline and plot...one which causes you to have to think things through and figure things out.  Eye candy is of no real importance to me.  It's nice if it can be added without causing people with older computers to be unable to play.

This is literally not happening here. You've been told this multiple times. I don't know why it's still being talked about? We're a think tank, not a complaints tank to complain about things that aren't even related to this game. Can I complain about Trump here? It's just as related.

Thanks for keeping working on the project. I've starred the project on GitHub to follow it. Maybe with a new design I can get younger players to have look at LoGD :-)

Is this an offer? Smiley I must admit that my web design skills are pretty limited, making the client not looking much different from the old layout.

I could offer some design skills as well, but i was in belief that daenerys should stay old school ?

Old school in the sense of how it is played, yes, that is supposed to stay the same (scenes that you can navigate through with actions). This does not mean that it cannot be fancy looking (as in, design).

What style direction do youhave in mind ?i do corporate stuff at work but my heart belongs into the 16bit RPG and Fantasy styles. I could do smt over the weekend, its a nice thing to do to take a break from coding. Do you have some guidelines or can i download them somewhere ? ( github maybe ... are those ok ) ?

If you're looking for better-designed layouts, I might suggest something like what my site (Fandom Kingdom) uses. It is based on the already-released Slider template, but converted and edited to PHP instead of just pure HTML, to make it more dynamic.

can the old layouts be used with the new daenerys ?

@Aeolus : i have checked fandomkingdom before, there is a lot going on in that template :-D .
I think it does not match a fantasy setting , but then again, i don't know the Gameplay in your site, maybe its less of a fantasy thing.

I would be glad to try my luck for a skin for daenerys with a JRPG / RPG theme, and maybe for the old LOTG. There are a couple of impressive skins out there, like the one at https://www.atrahor.de/ .

Ill see if i can put some time aside :-D

Old skins will not work on Daenerys Sad.

I was thinking something more modern/clean like this, but Im no designer: https://imgur.com/a/VoviOdV

We'd love input and designs, but I wouldnt spend your time on CSS---just mock something up in Sketch etc. so you dont have to worry about templates.

That is not very RPG-ish :-) rather a business / blog / twine design i guess .

Plain white and black? That would definitely fit a fantasy theme, if the fantasy is of people joining. I would say that most people like detailed themes.

*laughing*

While I was also thinking about something not-that-optically-busy, a black and white theme (at a default one) is weird.

I could imagine a default template where the classic "character stats" looks completely different. For example, the character stats could be at the top / bottom instead with the avatar prominently displayed, and the border is the health bar.

We really love suggestions of any kind! But I agree with austen, a mock-up (or screen shot) is good.

Daenerys (LotGD Rewrite) Progress Update 5. April 2019

Progress
It's been ages. Motivation was severely lacking, mainly because of the new technologies that I was not able to wrap my head around long enough to make decent progress. Additionally, working nearly alone on 3 different main packages and implementing changes in all three after each other (core, crate, then client) was something that took way too much time.

Screw this.

I've decided to streamline development and not focus on a modern graphql approach, even though the advantages (dynamic interface!) would have been awesome. Doing it alone, as a non-export in modern JavaScript-technologies, was just not feasable. There is now a new crate (crate-html) that renders direct html. This way, I only have 2 branches to work on (core and crate) and features can make it much more quickly into the crate.

I'm proud to announce the release of version 0.5.0 of the core version, along with 0.5.0 of crate-html. I've attached a screenshot as a teaser Wink

New are some general fixes, update symfony dependencies to symfony 4, adding two admin commands (one to list characters, one to reset a characters viewpoint) and character stats. The client is compatible with it, but lacks currently an installer. This is the next part, then I can focus back to the attachments. The, imho, most important change is the move from auto_increment to randomly generated uuids. This allows to connect entities before submitting them to the database.

Generally, the game loop runs with all installed modules. Characters can log in, walk around the city, go into the forest, fight, and earn experience. The only thing lacking is earning gold, and being able to buy weapons. I have not yet tested the level-up or the green dragon.

Next Goals (It's the same as last time)
The next goals is implement "attachments" in graphql so that scenes can provide forms (for gold deposit in the bank, for chatting on the village square, and much more). For modules, we plan to extend module-forest to provide a hook for specials and provide a basic inventory system for armors and weapons.

That IS one hell of an awesome skin!!  Wish I could get it.
I am terrible with templates, though.  After several miserable failures...I decided to leave it in the hands of a friend who runs a different site, who has always been willing to share this stuff with me...in exchange for my looking over php code for him, and especially sql calls...and the occasional interesting unique module.

Daenerys (LotGD Rewrite) Progress Update 8. April 2019

Progress
As promised, the installer has been updated alongside the modules. To get your very own installation, writing down the following commands will get you started:

Code:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lotgd/installer/v0.5.0/daenerys-install.php
php daenerys-install.php check
php daenerys-install.php install --installDefaultModules
php daenerys-install.php run-test

The flag --installDefaultModules installs all updated modules to provide the whole game experience. Only one missing is the dragon-kill module, but since there are neither weapons nor armors buyable right now, it doesn't matter anyway.

Next Goals
  • I want to have some basic administration features running in lotgd/crate-html, like granting administration rights and a admin panel.
  • Attachments, still
  • And, if attachments are running: Basic inventory system for armors and weapons (including the shop), specials, working bank.

If you are interested in speeding up the development, there are some open issues @lotgd/core, and PR's for the crate are welcome, too. And, you are free to create modules!
