Loto's Character Workshop - Open Source!

It's been awhile since my last update of the Workshop, and I know there are those of you out there that still use it (and I thank you!) It's become difficult to keep up to date due to real life, that and the fact that I haven't played in quite some time that it just made sense to release it to the public. So, public DAoC'ers, you are free to do with it as you please though I'm sure there are many that have moved to other tools like GearBunny, Kort's, etc... if you do end up taking a look or modifying it, let me know :) The project began 7 years ago and was done in Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0. If you're an experienced programmer with serious interest, or just a beginner looking for something to tinker with, there's certainly enough there to peruse.

Here's the link to my github repository, the version that you'll find is 1.110.0 which is the current binary available for download on my site.

Loto's Character Workshop 1.101.10

Special Thanks to Seren for the detailed reports that facilitated these updates!

- Procs and Effects - Arcane Siphon is located under PvE Bonus Heal Group has been added to the Effect lists (Reactive, Charged, Offensive)

Replenish Power (Group) has been added to the Effect lists (Reactive, Charged, Offensive)

Self Melee and Magic Health Buffer has been added to the Effect lists (Reactive, Charged, Offensive) Replenish Power Over Time has been added to the Effect lists (Reactive, Charged, Offensive)

- Craft Bar Tool - Setup Craft Bar window will now only load spellcrafters in the drop box.

- Stats and Calculations - Duplicate stats where one stat resides in a 5th slot will now calculate correctly. For example if you have a pair of leggings with +15 Con imbued and their 5th slot bonus is also +15 Con, you will now see a total of 30 Con on the leggings.

Fixed a bug that prevented the Mythirian bonuses from showing up in some areas.

- Imports - Fixed the Kort's Import routine to only load those items that are marked as equipped. For example, if you have a Kort's template that has 3 rings on the Right Right slot and the 2nd one is marked as equipped, the Workshop will now correctly load ring #2 instead of the last ring (#3).

Loto's Character Workshop 1.101.0

Loto's Character Workshop 1.100.1

2.20.2010

Lotos' Character Workshop 1.100.1

The Workshop has been updated with the following:

Support for Ywain for loading of crafting bars!

Fixed the bard regrowth spec line

Removed utility display as it is an arbitrary value and not an exact science ;)

Long time users will notice the interface has changed slightly. It's bigger! I've enlarged the paper doll to allow for easier navigation.

Loto's Character Workshop 1.100 Goes Live!

The Workshop has been updated to include the spell line changes for DAoC 1.100. In case you missed the patch notes on the herald, here's what changed.

A new Disease spell has been added to the Ice Magic Specialization Line for Wizards.

  • Level 17 – Mitigating Cold – 3s cast / 1.5 minute duration – 1500 range / 250 radius – 7.5% Strength Debuff / 15% Movement Speed Debuff – 11 power
  • Level 25 – Subduing Cold – 3s cast / 2 minute duration – 1500 range / 300 radius – 7.5% Strength Debuff / 15% Movement Speed Debuff – 16 power
  • Level 35 – Inhibiting Cold – 3s cast / 2.5 minute duration – 1500 range / 350 radius – 7.5% Strength Debuff / 15% Movement Speed Debuff – 22 power
  • Level 45 – Debilitating Cold – 3s cast / 3 minute duration – 1500 range / 400 radius – 7.5% Strength Debuff / 15% Movement Speed Debuff – 29 power

Also supported are the new Dragon Mythirians. Actually this is nothing new, as the mythirian slot has been capable of handling 12 slots for a few years now. I must have foreseen this ;)

Seriously though, I'm sure the stats may change, if so you can bet there will be an update!

A note about the Workshop and Vista and Auto-Updates ... and you!

IF you are running Windows Vista or 7 you may notice that when the workshop updates, nothing seems to happen. Before you go deleting or uninstalling things (we don't want you doing anything crazy now) You will need to start the workshop as an administrator. To do this, in case you don't already know, right click on the program icon and select "Run as Administrator" this will allow the workshop to patch and start up properly.

Enjoy!
