Apps for Traveller

Postby mancerbear » Sun Aug 13, 2017 4:18 am

You know what I would like to see? Apps for Mongoose Traveller, particularly a character sheet app. I think that would be a great addition to make to the game.

RPG Suite will only work if you have a certain level of broadband speed, which I don't have, making it useless to me.

A blank PDF charsheet that generates the character's field values (or you can enter them manually) as you click or TAB through them, or the app generates a character first and then a PDF for their charsheet is made?

An app that allows you to enter the characters details as you create them, room for skills, equipment, previous careers.

Also acts like a database so Referees can keep all their NPC, animals, and equipment in one place.

Helps with starship and vehicle construction and stores the sheets.

Finally, allows the creation of random characters ether completely randomly or with input at choice junctions.

That would be handy. Not to mention cool...

I was using it on my laptop in bed last night while the power was out and didn't have any issues.

Trust me when I say that I have not been able to get it to run and after several weeks working with tech support they advised me it was the speed of the internet.

Without wishing to drag this out, did they say specifically what was lacking in your net connection? I get that not everywhere on the planet has the same bandwidth but it seems an odd statement, do you have similar issues with other apps and software?

When starting the app the 1st time and also after any updates, it downloads a ship's boatload of stuff, so I can see why having a slow connection could be a problem. It is relatively slow on my decent broadband connection.
Also, it does require a login to use, and annoyingly never remembers the details....
So yeah, something that doesn't require constant internet presence would be nice.
