Many players don't know, but in fact, xTools is based upon the name of an external tool project.
Like many players, we consider GetterTools as dead since some time now - an information like that was told to us by a member of the translation team.
And so, we started a new project : xTools, during the middle of Closed Beta.
That tool, for now, exists only as an alpha version (only dummy datas, no database for now).
Most of the UI is done by me, and I can say the UI is done at 50%.
Due to some circonstances, we are in research of a php dev that would accept to create some of the processes, maybe all.
For you to imagine what will be possible on the tool :
- Tools :
--> Basic ones : cropfinder, inactive finder, maps.
--> Defense : tournament square estimator, defense table, defense call, rally point analysis.
--> Offense : hammer builder, basher tool,
--> Intelligence : Add a report, Collection of reports, Combining reports,
--> Advanced : Feeder (for Wonder, as example), custom map.
- Troops tools for confeds, alliance, kingdoms and players.
- Offensive plan creator/editor
- Hall of Fame
There will be an inner forum dedicated to the development and improvement of the tool, and also a FAQ. The first usable draft of the tool will be in english, german and french.
The connection to the tool will be possible with three different kind of connection :
- Travian:Kingdoms AccessKey : for reports collections and troop tools.
- xTools registered user : for multiserver connection.
The UI include the use of browsers capacities : cookies, and browser inner database (IndexedDb for those who knows).
The tools won't be developped to fit on smartphones at first, due to the complexity of many tools.
So, if you want to participate in the project, mostly for the server side, you're welcome and you can contact me via personnal message here.
