Hello Gamedev Forums!
I am a Computer Science student who is currently learning C#. I would like to sharpen up (see what I did there?) on the language by writing an application that could be helpful to the community (and free of charge too!). If there is enough demand, I could possibly develop a Java version which could be used on Macs as well. My idea came from a conversation with a friend about Lore. I would love to write a Lore Helper tool, which would keep Lore neat and organized.
The idea so far, is to have Tree-like structures that would keep the Lore organized. For example creating a Parent that could be called "Humans". In there you could write all the lore about Humans in general and their history etc. Under "Humans" you could have a child called "Factions". In there you describe the human factions. You could also have another child called "Relations", and describe how Humans cooperate with other species etc. Each child could also become a parent for several smaller children.There would of course be Text Editing so that the text could be formatted and prettified. Perhaps even insertion of pictures along the way.
All data would be saved for an .LH extension but the data could be exported as PDF and/or DOCX files as well when you are done. My question to the community is:
Would you like a tool like this?
And if yes, what other functionality would you like to see?
Thanks for Reading!
