First released version of SnowCraft (19 January 2015).
Since 1994 the world of Warcraft has captured the souls of gamers. 10 years later, gamers no longer command from afar, but enter the World of Warcraft themselves to carve out a virtual life in Azeroth of their own. Quests, exploration and riches await as gamers venture through the world on foot, on the back of a gryphon or with a group of friends. World of Warcraft takes place within the Warcraft universe, in the wake of Warcraft III and it's expansion. Choosing your faction plays a major part in the game, as you will be at war with no less than half of the races that inhabit the game.
I started some month ago an online editor project to make it easyer to ahndle the work process and also give technical not much skilled but creative people the possibility to create quests and other serverside game content.
WoW is technical a very complex system. You have gameObjects, items, spells, creatures or quests and all this pices have so many options you can define. In the moment the quest editor as main part of the system is in development.
It is fully working and I add now features to avoid fully the need of searching for IDs in other DBC or sql tables and insert them by hand.
WoW client and also trinity, the server system we use to creat our project, use DBC files. They hold different game data and define together with the serverside mySql database the full functinalaty of the game world. In the past modders changed the sql and dbc stuff in different tools seperated. The problem with this is that both data sources are related to each other. You you often had to open a DBC file localy to find out an ID you had to add to the mySql tables.
To avoid this and make it possible to creat an easy to use editor i have written en importer and ecporter modul to get all the DBC stuff into the mySql database and if something has changed again back into the DBCs.
The system also still contans a job and server account managment section where we can give people acces to the server and manag the working tasks with a jobtraker. There you can see what the progress of each job is and who is working on what part of the project.
This jobtracker allows the workers to set what status the job has. Like he is working on it or it is ready for testing.
Also they can set a percent value how far they are.
There is much more possible to implement and we will see where this sideproject will lead to.
