      I am looking for team members to potentially collaborate on the development of various game projects as well as assistant applications potentially, tabletop games for example.  At the moment, I am doing the entire production on my own, which as a result is incredibly slow.  Any contributions will of course be credited, and as far as experience or skills, if you're confident that you can accomplish the tasks, then I'm more than willing to allow you to try.
      The biggest need at the moment is some art skills.  I 'can' draw, but not well, which means that if I'm going for positive asthetics, that it's going to take all year.  In my 2D games, and 3D games, art has been the one hold up.  I'm currently trying to work around the art issue, using placeholders and the likes, but the result is that no matter how far I take the game in concept, it's still lightyears from completion.  The more I accomplish, the more art assets will be needed to utilize it.  I intend to work on my own skills still in this department, but that being said, people who just want to get their art into a product, or people who want to expand their portfolio, are more than welcome to take over the production of art assets.  If you only have experience in pixel art, that's fine, I have a pixel art project on-going.  If you only 3D model, that's fine too, I've had some success in concept art and the likes, and helpful friends as well. Are you more the writing type?  Me too, we can bounce ideas back and forth, help solidify the storyline and concepts as we go on into the development process. Business minded?  I'd love to learn more by seeing how you work.
      I will say that, while I am working to advance my skills in all facets of game development, though my primary focus is programming, that being said I will always welcome a comrade, or ally.  Your position as a team member will not be nullified if I become able to fulfill the role.  The fact of the matter is, a team can accomplish more.  I do work a LOT on these projects, but I do understand that if you are joining this team, you aren't doing so for the wealth, meaning you likely have responsibilities elsewhere.  So, do not hesitate to contact me. If you are a beginner, looking to learn by practice, then you are welcome to come as well. We will utilize the best suited works for any development done, but it will always be merit based, meaning that whether you're a beginner that just joined, or me, if yours is more suited to the situation, yours will be used, and you will be credited for it.  Students, hobbyists, or professionals, all welcome.  If you're a professional though, I'm going to wonder why you are joining, but you are still welcome to join!
      Samples are always welcome, but if you don't have any, or don't know what to submit to the diversity of my product description, then just contact me, elaborate on what you do, and I'll give you a subject.  One that will not be used unless you join the team, of that you have my word.

Unity Looking for tool to help me generate values for large library of equipement

Hi everyone.

I've been working on this idea for a game lately and I'm hitting a bit of a wall. I'm trying to build a game that has a very large library of weapons that have many tiers of strengths. But calculating the approximate values that a weapon should have at each tier ends up being very time consuming and extremely hard to get the exact right value it should have.

The way I'm trying to go about building this library is I that for every weapon type, I figure out what values it should have for a level 1 character and then I figure out what values it should have for a level 30 character (which is the highest a character will ever reach). Once I know the beginning and the end, figuring out whats in the middle isn't that hard... At least it would be pretty easy if I just wanted a straight progression, which I don't.

I would like a progression that increases as the tiers go up. This is to make it so every tier is noticeably better than the last.

I don't like the idea of using a straight progression and here's an example of a linear straight progression of values for a weapon to show you why. A level 1 sword that starts at a strength of 1 and every level, the strength of the weapon would go up by one strength. So at level 5 it would have a strength of 5 and at level 10 it would have 10 of strength. Now if you look at the jump from level 1 to level 2, it is a very significant increase in strength. Literally 100% more strength. Compare that with the jump in strength between level 4 and 5. The jump is now only 25% more. At level 10 going to 11, its only 10% more. Essentially, the higher the level goes, the less significant the level of the strength increase becomes.

This is why I want a curved progression throughout the levels of tiers for my weapons and all my equipment versus the straight progression. Every level higher needs to be noticeably better than the last.

I though up of a type of tool that would allow me to generate values with a modifiable curve for my equipment and I looked around the web for something, anything, like it. But no luck.

Here's what I'm looking for:

Some kind of tool where I put down the level one value (start), the final level value (end) and the amount of levels throughout (say 30 or however many I would need at the moment). Once those values are given, that would generate a graph (typical X-Y line graph) with a straight progression between all values and it would also need to have some fields that give the exact current values for each level throughout. Simple enough.

Now here's where it gets a little harder. The graph would need to be interactive. I would need to be able to grab the line of the graph and modify it to create the curve I want in the line (similar to photoshop when modifying the line in the curves menu (image/adjustments/curves)). By doing this, all the values for every level would need to update as the line is moved. That way, once I have the curve I want, I could simply copy and paste each level value.

The last thing that would be cool to have is an option to save the current curve to be able to re-use that exact same curve later.

Does anybody know of a tool that would be anything like this?

If not, would anybody with the required skills be willing to try and build such a tool so we could give it to the game design community? It seem like the type of tool that would be very useful.

Any thoughts or comments?

I'm all all ears guys and gals. I hope to get some feedback on this.

The most obvious thing to me is geogebra: http://www.geogebra.org/cms/

Lets take a graph as you show, the x-axis could represent level and y-axis could represent strength.
Then all you need is ye olde y=x^2+c or something, x^1.5+c might also work, c would be the strength of the weapon at level one.
