I have raised this question to move away from the request for an API. As the ideas are different.
Would really like the Devs to allow the dumping of a CSV file for us silent types to make life easier for those wanting to improve the GoW Gaming experience for themselves and others.
There are marvellous GoWers who have:
Built and maintain the Wiki
Created the ToDo Standalone program.
Used Google Online Spreadsheet for Traitstones
Created a website with Troop Listing and Filtering Resource
One who wants to code a database as a Team-Building resource
Created Spreadsheets with various degrees of expertise.
For me, it seems a simple effort for the Devs to add a button to the game that performs a dump of useful variables (already in use during the game) into a text or csv file.
First, would the Devs please get approval for this option for a future upgrade.
Second, what variable contents would we like in the CSV file if this is approved.
Suggestions (need more please)
- Current Troop Level
- Number of individual Troops (Ascension)
- Troop with Blue Arrow
- Troop with Green Arrow
- Listing as shown in Map > Hero > Collection
- Traits we have for each Troop.
Why should management approve this?
We love to play even if it is with a spreadsheet!
We benefit the game by producing resources that help other players. Resources that the Developers of the game do not have the funding for.
The developers are busy improving our gaming experience by improving the game itself.
I trust them. I am sure they trust us
Here’s my humble efforts so far. The User just has to enter the Troop level, number of Traits and which Troops have a Green Cross in three columns on the Main Sheet and everything is automated (for most of the resources in the spreadsheet).
Kingdom Stars - Introduction and Progress:
Click on the Star button and you see this:
Ctrl-Click on the Kingdom Name and you get this:
So, do I increase my number of 3 Star Kingdoms and get a 20% chance for double + double tribute or go for a 4 star kingdom that only gives me 50 extra Gold per day?
I use it all the time, easy and saves me lots of faffing around.
Please, please let us have a facility for a CSV dump
