I was in much the same boat as I didn’t know about them when AoM came out since I wasn’t looking for mods or reading forum content. Just before FG launched I found three vids on YouTube by malagant, LiftingNerdBro, and Pohx where they all highlighted GI and IA (and full Rainbow mod).
GT, GI and IA not required, but they’re the reason I came back after over a year away and bought FG, and they’re the reason I still play today.
Probably it would be nice implement GrimTools offline version like ‘Path of Building’.
Make build. Generate build-code. Upload it to pastebin and share with others )
Community can get code from pastebin and paste it into offline version.
And yes, list of builds generated by this tool can be saved locally and play withthem.
Can help to implement it with C# or Java.
Dammit did a lot of work and has experience in data scrapping from the game, so if he can share some design, code or data, it will be awesome!
In the light of some latest patches trying to “grim internal” up the game, no, Crate won’t admit that a 3rd party tool is superior to their own version. They will dumb it down, but at least, we still have something as backup in this kind of situation, yes?
it is stupid in the sense that there is no reason for this, certainly not for newbies. At most this should be true for people who want to squeeze the last bit of efficiency out of an already great build…
As to ‘most newbies’, I doubt more than 10% of players even use the site. This feels like typical exaggeration by extrapolating from a bubble without realizing that it is one.
Y’know, in my entirely experience in Social Networks like Forum and Stuff in the past ~13 Years i had hardly read such bratty, ungrateful and disrepectfull comment like this, and considered that i know Communities like Final Fantasy, Fallout and such, this means a lot.
Again it show how overexaggerate and blown out of proportion this whole topic is like your whole GD existence is bound to an external third party tool. Again not saying it isn´t helpfull, but for me it sounds like, if you and some other people need Grim Tools to enjoy Grim Dawn, you truly have bigger Problems than your concern of how “well” Crate would implement something like that. (Besides i’ve to disagree, because the GI features are perfectly implemented, in crates way… where such stuff don’t feel like an bloated foreign body of an third party tool… it’s made in a way which mostly only devs of their game can provide to implement a community feature in a native and fitting way. Than again i understand if you need the other stuff of GI or more customization, but please stop this supreriour-bullshit complex of yours).
Yes, i agree with Mamba, while sure GT might be for a part of the community be vital, majority, even more “newbies” don’t care that much about it. It’s more Theorycrafters and such, which are kinda the minority here, use that Tool extensively.
blah blah blah, say that to the Classes, Skills and Builds section of the forum, where most theorycraft need it.
“The small” number of people who use the site is actually the one who will stick with the game, not the type of 10 hours and quit player. If you can understand that, you will understand the important of such tool. But again, in all of my years gaming, apologist like you is not something new to me either.
And I will just laugh at such people because they against good stuff and for them whatever the heck the dev do is “perfect”.
