Aery Plays is a new blog where I will be posting my thoughts on any games I am playing or have an interest in. This includes things like news, reviews, previews, guides, general adventures, and even video game related fanart, artwork, and designs that I end up doing. There will also be a store added soon selling some of these designs as t-shirts, prints, or other handmade goodies (like plushies). The reason I am posting this here is because Guild Wars 2 is my MMO of choice and many of my posts will be about GW2 in some way, so I thought it might be of interest to some of the users here at Guru.
If this sounds like something you'd like to read about, please head over to the blog at: http://www.aeryplays.com/ and let me know what you think!
So, I've had this idea for a fan-created website relating to Guild Wars 2 for awhile now. Basically, I was unsatisfied with just being able to preview items in the clunky PvP Locker interface and wished there were a better solution for putting together outfits and such. I know there are some other sites out there that have static pictures of armor sets on different races/professions, but I still thought the idea could be taken further...
I decided to design an idea mockup of sorts that showed exactly what I had in mind for this site - the result is Guild Wars 2 Outfitter! This site would allow users to create custom outfits and then share them easily with the community.
Features would include:
- Sample model and armor/weapon previews in 3D
- Instantly filter results
- Outfit Mode and Dye Mode
- Shopping List with real-time info pulled from the Trading Post
- Account features
- Easily browse outfits created by others
Guild Wars 2 is a really cosmetic game and there is such an importance placed on upgrading the visual appeal of your character that I think the community really needs a site like this to exist. The only problem is that even though I have the idea and drive to make it, I do not possess the necessary coding experience to take on a project like this. Honestly, I wouldn't even know where to begin trying to learn. I'm posting this in the hopes that someone with more knowledge than me in website development will see it and like to help make this happen! Or at least shed some light on how difficult something like this would be to make.
So if anyone would be interested in working on this project with me, I'd love to hear from you.
Or just general thoughts about this idea would be great, too. Thank you for reading.
