Ezard Posted June 23, 2013 Share Posted June 23, 2013 (edited) Pretty much what the title says - if you want to be able to access your foundry, get daily login rewards and do other game-related stuff, all from your phone via an app, then up-vote this topic, and comment showing your support DE are obviously focusing on making the game as awesome as possible, and as such aren't really prioritising their Android app (which is fine, because the game needs the most work) However, there are several community developers, including myself, who have already made several programs, apps and websites that allow players to get notified of alerts, provide info about the game, or provide a means to calculate the damage done by weapons when mods are equipped. I don't just speak for myself when I say that most, if not all of us community devs would be more than happy to integrate features like accessing your foundry into our software - and best of all, it's not even like we charge money for our software So in conclusion, to show your support for this cause, please upvote this topic, and comment with additional features that would like to be included, and I'll add them here If many people join this cause, then the devs will have to pay attention (or they could just delete this topic, but the first option is preferable :D) Okay people seem to be against getting login rewards, so I'll add it to the "Possibly Unwanted" list below Other Suggested Features Full access to mod collection Access to dojo research/construction Access to the market Contact list (including being able to see who's online, and being able to chat with them) Clan chat "Dojo room complete" notification You can't collect your daily login reward - instead, you avoid losing your login streak (but you don't get the reward) Instead of letting players claim their login rewards from an app, instead they would be able to see what their login reward for today would be IF AND ONLY IF they actually login to the game Since Kubrow management is going to be similar to tamagotchi, a way to look after them from the app would probably come in useful Possibly Unwanted Features Daily Login Rewards UPDATE So it was mentioned on Devstream 51 that this is now in the works for Warframe Nexus, but I'd like to outline some points as to why I believe it should be made available for community developers too: 1. Warframe Nexus past has been...not great. Although I admire DE for thinking of making an official companion app, it never seemed to work as they intended it to (lack of filters in v1, spammed user with notifications in v2, codex not working in v2, mass image downloading (~1300 images) in v2, etc). Although I believe that their intentions were always true, a lot of players are now kinda wary of downloading Nexus 2. Competition - more people developing similar things means that there will be increased competition between the developers, which encourages them all to make better products, which is always better for the users And some obvious reasons why DE may still be cautious about letting community devs use their API: 1. Security - although I personally would never use the API for anything malicious, there may be some people who might troll with it (Such as building 100,000 weapons to use up all of the user's credits/resources, or something else similarly stupid) 2. Control - everyone loves it, especially companies. 'nuff said Edited April 26, 2015 by Ezard Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
