I’m Annoyed, been waiting AGES for this.

Give DC Universe some mother loving LOVE!

DC Universe Online went free to play and added millions of new users (brought back many old users too). You have more guild websites on Shivtr for DCUO than you do for SWTOR.

When will you directly support DCUO so I don't have to hack job so much stuff into this site?

Why can't you add the movement mode, classes and mentors?

You are adding support for other games and you seem to be neglecting DCUO. If you had direct support for DCUO I could justify paying your fees.

  • Hi Richbunk,

    Could you link me to some features we could perhaps add for DCUO and we'll see if we can get something added with one of the next few updates? =)

    Information such as Server Status, Char Profiles, Item Tooltips or anything of that nature (preferrably from the official source) we could use to pull in as a feature.

    Cheers,

  • Also one quick extra note, I'm not familiar with DCUO unfortunately, but for mentors, is this like a subclass? And could you link me somewhere to explain wha the movement mode would be, or how this could be added as a feature?

  • I could help you out with this data hopefully you will offer some means to convert my current users. :)

    I will respond with info I can find for you. I know SOE has Server Status, but it's just a webpage. Perhaps I can ping SOE to see if they can get a few things open to the community.

    In DCUO you have Mentors (Heroes and Villain types)...

    Batman (Tech), Superman (Meta), Wonder Woman (Magic) (Heroes)
    Joker (Tech), Lex Luthor (Meta), Circe (Magic) (Villains)

    You also have a Movement Mode...

    Flight, Super Speed, Acrobatics

    Right now I just bundle these up IE: Meta Flight, Meta Super Speed, Meta Acrobatics, etc.

    Classes would be...

    Tank (Fire & Ice), Controller (Light, Gadget & Mental) Healer (Lightning, Sorcery & Nature), all of those classes can switch to DPS though.

    SOE Server Status: http://www.soe.com/status/

    I will see what else I can come up with for you.

  • Some simple things you can make the admin in control of is Nomenclature.

    For example DCUO doesn't have guilds it has leagues. Technically classes are call roles. There are no races only mentors.

    Maybe a small table of words that can be substituted on the fly. Both singular and plural versions of the words would be needed.

  • I was looking at this area of your website...

    http://tools.shivtr.com/lol

    Some of these things can be replicated for DCUO.

    The items builder would likely be like DCUO R&D, this would be pretty easy to implement. There are a number of plans (recipes) but not a ton.

    The masteries builder sounds a lot like DCUO Skill Trees / Power Trees. This wouldn't be too tough to implement. DCUO Source did one (that replicates the skill tree logic).

    http://dcuosource.com/skill-planner

    However theirs tops out at 80 some skill points / 15 power points and many people are well above that now. A builder that had no limits would be a good idea.

  • Hi Richbunk,

    Thanks for all your info here =)

    I'm going to aim to get a server status block for DCUO added this weekend, and we'll then announce it on our blog.

    For the skill planner, that looks neat as well and is likely something we can enable; we won't be adding new tools for a few updates tho (we're focusing on the mobile version currently), but I've added a note for this and when we do we'll take a look at this =)

    Cheers,

  • Would really like to see more DCUO related stuff available. My league mates love the website. DCUO doesn't yet have an armory type of thing so character profiles are still outside of reach but yes, mentors, movement speed, combat rating.

    Combat Rating is item level, like in world of warcraft
    Mentors are not a subclass. The mentor you have affects your starting area and offers a few missions that are exclusive to mentors. However if you group with someone you can get him into your mentor missions regardless of his mentor. It's for feats and collections.
    As for tools a mod database would be useful. Mods are like sockets in every other game and they have tiers. The plans for them are tradeable and so are the finished products. For this section I would recommend a database of all available mods ingame (I would link to the forum but it's down) and then each member could select the mods he can craft. And then when you need a mod you just click on it and see a list of people that can craft it and it's materials.

    As combat rating is rather important for endgame raids the event feature should show a little more detail on those that have signed up such as Combat Rating, Power, Skill Points

    That's all I can think of now :)

  • @Zugravu -- you can add custom fields to profiles on DCUO. If you want check out my site www.DCUOAlliance.com sign up and you can see what I did.

    @8 Toes -- I didn't see the server status change when the DCUO servers came down today. Also is there any way to reduce the size of that block?

  • Hi Richbunk,

    The server status blocks are cached (well kind of double cached), which means they won't respond instantly to changes; they are set to update once every 30 minutes, but then get cached with the view for 5 minute periods as well, meaning it could be up to 35 minutes after the servers go down before the block updates, depending how far along each of the caches are)...

    They should update after that point tho, was it an extended period the servers were down for and the blocks did not update?
