User File Creation Tracking
Hey all, I had an idea the other day. Well I had several but only one really fits in here. I see that many folks are creating their own content for Hero Lab, which is great. This is a huge jump from last year when it seemed like lawful_g and myself were the only ones pushing out files. So huzzah to all of you.

Now with that in mind, my idea is to help organize who is doing what. Right now everyone is working in the dark from any projects that anyone else is working on. So letís simplify all that and focus the community to the benefit of everyone. To that end I purpose a tracking mechanism for the HL community. I will create a listing of all the books for D&D 3.5 and 4.0 as well as Pathfinder. I will then create a listing of sub topics for each book/publication and provide a way for people to choose what they would like to work on. For instance, the D&D 3.5 Complete Arcane. I will set up tasks for:

Magic items
Prestige Classes
Combine them all to one data set

I will post this listing on my web site with a link from the Hero Lab User Repository located at www.cheeseweasel.net. The listing will look something like:

Publication Who Start Date Completed
Complete Arcane (D&D 3.5)
Skills Cheifweasel 6/1/2010
Spells Lawful_g 5/22/2010
Magic items Shadow 6/1/2010
Prestige Classes
Class 1
Class 2
Class 3
Combine them all to one data set

Any slots that are left open are available for anyone to take and complete. Just let me know at chiefweasel@cheeseweasel.net and I will put you down. Now we do ask that if you canít work on the project, please donít take it. We would like to complete the tasks assigned and make the content available to everyone. So while you may have good intention, please donít bite off more than you can chew. One of my hopes in this is that by breaking all the larger projects down, we can better coordinate working being done and break out the workload to several people.

Over the next week, I will be creating the listing for each publication. I'll post the file location and web page in a few days as well. I am bound to miss something along the way though, so just let me know and Iíll add it all in. I will also put all the information into an excel spreadsheet that I will make available to anyone who wants as well. I'll do the D&D 3.5 stuff first. If anyone else have listings or would like the format to create the listings for me, that would be great. Thanks, I welcome your comments.

Hey chiefweasel,

I think this would be a great idea actually and should help with some of the overlap I have seen in the Pathfinder area. I will try and get a list of books for the Pathfinder stuff put together and sent to you. The only issue here is that Paizo is coming out with at least 1 to 2 new books a month. So don't know if you could list every single one, but maybe a bunch and if someone has a new one they are working on then create a new listing.

At least for Pathfinder I would suggest adding Traits, Equipment and Monsters. I have seen allot people working on Monsters, but so far not sharing them. :(

It also maybe an idea to allow someone to take a section for only Data Entry as they maybe willing to help, but can't actually script. I know it would save me time if all I had to do for a PFRPG book was do the scripting and not actually plugging in basic information for each Thing.

Feel free to mark me down currently as working on the Armor section of the "Adventurer's Armory" for PFRPG. :)

Sounds good. If you guys could compile the information into single files for each book, that would be great. I'll still list what was done so everyone can see it. So just send what you have completed along, thanks.

Lawful_g June 6th, 2010 01:58 PM

Sorry, I am not willing to compile them because having them separate allows me to keep track of how complete they are as well as when I last modified/updated them (as I sometimes find errors in things I thought were complete). This is critical for me to keep accurate backups.

I will send them to you though. You can compile them together if you like.

I should have the listing up on the Cheeseweasel.net website ina few days. So far i have created listings for about 740 items. about 75 of them are complete.

I am also going to change up the web pages that are out there now and combine the information into the listing I am currently creating. The big task now is swapping over all the file names and notes form the old format to the new format. Lots of cutting and pasting.

I am also thinking of creating a massive file that has all the files collected so far for each game system. then folks can just download that and take what they want from it. The only issue there is that it will change a lot so if people download iot a second time, it might get tough to pull out what they want. Just a thought I am mulling.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 01:55 AM.
