OpenD6 Toolkit

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I'm currently days away from releasing a cross platform app for Android and iOS that lets you manage your OpenD6 characters.  I've been working part time on this for fun and plan on releasing it for free sometime this weekend, likely.

Here's a quick video showing you the work to date - https://youtu.be/3GGaBId5rp8

The project is open source and the project code is hosted here - https://github.com/sentry0/OpenD6Toolkit

Features:

  • Die roller
    • Supports both classic and Legend styles of rolling
    • Statistics are also tracked on your dice
  • Character tools
    • Select a template to build your character from
    • Automatically calculates your point cost
    • Supports the three base genres out of the box (Adventure, Fantasy, Space)
    • Supports all options (Advantages, Complications, Special Abilities)
    • Save/Load/Delete characters
  • Game Templates

Future Plans:

  • Embed the full SRD into the app
  • GM tools (campaign log, initiative chart, NPC health tracker)
  • A library of OGL OpenD6 and related games

Thanks!

Over the past month I have been working on a cross platform app called the OpenD6 Toolkit. My intention with the app is to allow people to play OpenD6 games and its variants from a mobile device as well as provide useful tools for players and GMs alike.

I’m pleased to report that OpenD6 Toolkit is now available via the following app stores:

The project is open sourced and hosted on github here.

Features

Die roller

  • Supports both classic and Legend styles of rolling
  • Statistics are also tracked on your dice

Character tools

  • Select a template to build your character from
  • Automatically calculates your point cost
  • Supports the three base genres out of the box (Adventure, Fantasy, Space)
  • Supports all options (Advantages, Complications, Special Abilities)
  • Save/Load/Delete characters

Game Templates

  • The app supports custom game templates that may be used to build characters
  • There is a companion project for sharing templates here
  • Custom templates means you can support games that use the Mini Six ruleset easily

Let me know what you think of the work so far.

Thanks!

Very interresting and useful. Miss a "how to" make custom template : any tutorials ?

Tank you again

There is no official tutorial...I'll have to write one :)  

For now this will have to do:

  • Go here
  • Copy the file contents into a text editor like Notepad (or Notepad++)
  • Give it a name by editing line 2
  • Add/Edit/Delete attributes and skills (or anything else for that matter)
  • Save the new template to Google Drive/iCloud or to your phone directly
  • Tap the "Upload" button under the "Templates" section on the home screen
  • Select your template
  • Build your character

I can help you with the above if you find yourself running into issues.

I just pushed an update to the Android/Amazon/Apple app stores for the the 1.1.1 release of the OpenD6 Toolkit. I fixed a couple of bugs and added a bunch of features and upgraded some core development frameworks and libs.

Here's what's coming:

  • Fixed various bugs with loading/saving character and templates (iOS)
  • Added the Move attribute to the builder
  • Added the Equipment tab to the builder
  • Added the Background tab to the builder
  • Added the Notes tab to the builder
  • Added a points section to the builder to track character/fate/build and complication points
  • Added a footer to the builder with buttons to create/save/open characters quickly
  • Attributes and skills now have a hidden menu you can access by sliding the name of the item to the right
  • The Initiative tool now allows you auto-sort initiatives


The updated app should be rolling out to your devices within the next day or so.

Cheers.

Hello!

I have just released the version 1.2.0 of the OpenD6 Toolkit app. This is a major release that contains a couple of new tools and a major enhancement to an existing one. I'm really happy with how the app is shaping up and feel like it's come a long way from its original version, so I would encourage you to check it out!

Here's what you can expect:

  • Created the Architect tool that allows world builders to design games
  • Renamed and enhanced the Initiative tool to be the Orchestrator
  • Created a Backup and restore feature
  • Implemented paginated lists for Advantages/Complications/Special Abilities
  • Reworked the UI in general in attempt to make user interactions obvious
  • Added navigation buttons to all screens
  • Did a pass to support smaller phones
  • Miscellaneous bug fixes and enhancements

This update should be hitting your devices over the next couple of days.

Cheers.
