Author Topic: SMF Character Creator 'Repository' - NOW OPEN, drop by and upload a hero or two  (Read 936 times)

I'm going to create a page where you can search all the characters that have been created before.  Enter a name and it will pull up all the character sheets with that name and display them, that sort of thing.

There used to be an AWESOME site for SuperSystem that had great builds of most of the known heroes, and it was wonderful, especially when you were just starting out. 

My question to the group is, is there a way to recreate this with my SMF Char Creator site?  Is there a way to come to a consensus as to which ones should be posted?  One of the downsides of the ease of use of the site is that many of the characters created are just folks fooling around and there is a high number of low effort builds.

This is the beginning of a conversation, any ideas on a way to sort through the high quality builds and display them somewhere?

Happy to make it happen the char creator site, just need to know how to find them....

Going through the builds would be a bit of a slog, but I agree that it would be cool to find the best ones.

Not sure how except through brute force analysis.

You could give an option for the person creating the character to "publish" them for review, and then a review process.

Pretty sure that I could make it so the reviewers got an email with the image attached if this happened.  If I can make this work, we can get some volunteers (including myself obviously).  I can collect the ones submitted for review, have the reviewers get an email on Friday with all those to review.  I can even black list certain characters once they have a solid build or two in the repository?  Could be a fun thing to build and a lot of learning involved.

I like this idea, and I would pitch in!

I am planning on adding some builds soon. I mistakenly threw up a write up for my RPG just now!  o_o

Alright, I finished creating the uploader! 

http://rgregory11.pythonanywhere.com/upload


Go ahead and start submitting heroes for inclusion in the Hero Gallery.  I'll be hosting the Hero Gallery on my site at http://crossoverminiatures.com/super-mission-force-hero-gallery/ until I can get the gallery up and running on the SMF site.

Just getting started on my SMF stuff now, expect to see something from me soon:


Can someone tell me who the lady with the two lightsabres is? She came in a grab-bag and I don't do Star Wars anymore.

I don't really follow any of the Star Wars stuff but apparently she's Ahsoka Tano and was Anakin Skywalker's padawan.

Also using King Dedede as a supers character is awesome.  lol

I picked up Falco as well, my local Gaming chain has Amiibos half-price at the moment, so I'll be grabbing a few.

As much as I HATE using it for software, git provides a way of storing, searching, and revisioning files (including text).

There's a way to do group edits, as well (which frustrates the daylights of of me at work but might be the FREE right tool for what you have in mind.)

I appreciate it, but one of the main goals for me in the project is to hone my coding skills :)

Then git might actually be the right thing for you.

Whoever you grant access to can comment on your documents, code, test plans, download it and try it out, and so on.

Personally, I prefer svn (worked great for the first 15 years of my SW engineering career) but git is all the rage these days.

Care to tell me more about your project?  I'd love to read about it.
