Re: App for Generating Worlds

No.

Please could everyone knock it on the head. The isuue regarding release has been resolved between myself and Matt and it is was done in a professional and polite way.

I will post further updates here on the App, because its only V1 and it will grow and change.

Re: App for Generating Worlds

Tay I am not saying what your doing it wrong, I am just saying use it as a base and then Tweek the results as you go along. In the long run you will be happier. I do. I use the tool to do just that.

Re: App for Generating Worlds

Good to you. I wish I had that much spare time but I don't. I probably put in maybe 20 hours writing the app, which isn't too bad. In the long term it will save me time and therefore allow me more time to spend writing up my campaigns.

Re: App for Generating Worlds

Just had a reply from Matt stating along as I comply with the OGL (Which I believe I am) then what I am doing is fine.

Excellent

Re: App for Generating Worlds

I have gone through my App and gone through the Traveller SRD v1.1. There is nothing in my App that is not covered under the SRD. I can fully understand Matt's request to not release this, because they at some point may want to, but that is not a Legal Argument. That's like asking Samsung to not rel...

Re: App for Generating Worlds

Many thanks for the feedback. I emailed Mat and mentioned what I was doing and he asked that I don't release the App. It wasn't a cease order but a request. No reason given. I assume from an earlier email that at some point Mongoose may want to release their own software to do this. The actual app c...

Re: App for Generating Worlds

The Basic generator part now works. Just going through and checking the output is all correct. Once I am happy with the output, I will finish off the Save feature to include the necessary info. Once that is done, I will add the option to insert or import a UWP and generate the additional info from t...

Re: App for Generating Worlds

Have made some adjustments to the layout. Still some way to go, seeing as I am doing this in my spare time and this is my first real programming project.

Also moved the blog.

Re: App for Generating Worlds

Sort of yes.

The first column is the roll, second is the Result with Modifiers. This can be edited. Just need to add a button to say, if you edit it, update the UWP at the top etc.

App for Generating Worlds

I’ve been working on converting one of my old Excel World Generators into a Proper little Visual Basic App, and was wondering if this is acceptable from Mongoose. I am not looking to sell it or make any money from it. I thought seeing as there are plenty of Excel sheets that do this, then turning on...

Rebellion

How does the news that Rebellion have laid off people and shut one office affect Mongoose?

I am right in thinking that Mongoose became part of this group?

Would people rather see Mongoose struggle on, and run out of money ( not saying they would). Redundancies are a part of life. All companies do it. When work is thin on the ground, or times are hard you reduce your overheads. I.e. Salaries, which means TAX & Employers NI, and various other overheads ...
