Making an app for blade mistress

Post by skyshudder » Wed Aug 15, 2018 2:57 pm

Hi! Reyna Osiris here for those who don't know!
I'm currently in the process of making a phone app to be used with Blade Mistress.

The app will include:

Calculators(1st release)
-interactive maps(1st or 2nd release)
-geo builder tool so you can keep track of your geo(2nd release)

hopeful ideas:
-capability to read server input to help keep track of many stats/records and possibly create a leaderboard that tracks everyone's achievements.
-many more ideas to come.

i am also going to be looking for someone capable of graphical arts to possibly help with the project if anyone is interested. Just pop me a PM or reply on this topic.

If you have any ideas or suggestions for the app, please feel free to post here :D

The server only does two things.

1) accepts input from, logged in players, and sends them the output needed.
2) writes certain data to log files.

So there's really no API at all for a phone app to use.

i know there is no api, that why i would need to tap the server feed and write a script around it to read that

The server and clients directly communicate with each other. The server tells each client exactly what it needs to know at the time, and nothing else.

Even if you somehow made the phone sniff the local network it was connected to for wi-fi for all blade mistress packets, it would still only get the information sent between the server and anyone who was logged in on the local network.

Without CREATING an API, more info can't be extracted from the server.

You probably thought that the server sends the entire state of the gameworld to all clients. it doesn't. it only tells the client about the 11x11 or so square around the player.

hmmm, that does complicate things, i guess i'll rewrite what i have and just make it so users can input the information needed. i hate to put it all on the user but it looks like i won't have any other choice.

Thanks for the information zaphod!
