YPP Fruit Baron - Foraging counter application Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I am not sure what is the best forum for this, so here it goes.

I love the foraging puzzle, and I like running fruit. I wrote an application last year to track my foraging numbers to see how much money I was actually making from that silly badge. The original intent was to add features to account for tracking jobbers and sales to manage fruit running operations. I took a break from the game, so I never flushed that part out.

I would have posted this sooner, but I needed to remove all the YPP fruit crate images before I shared it with anyone else. Enjoy the 30 second mspaint drawings.

Since I used this as an opportunity to learn C#, windows is the only currently supported operating system. If people enough people care about the tool, I could port it to something else or add the features I mentioned before.

Cheers,
tehmikey

I was in a rush to get a rough draft posted yesterday, but I will update the webpage with basic instructions and put the contact/bug report links there as well. The only un-intuitive part may be the loading of the log files and what the buttons on that page do, so I will make sure to explain each button.

The app will scan an existing chat log from the last known time stamp. This means it will log all foraging data even if you were not watching the progress live.

Did someone say..... Baron?


Edit: On a side note, this is very interesting, and I plan on checking it out if I have some free time. In my experience though, nothing can beat a good old fashioned spread sheet when it comes to foraging.

I can agree, but if you want a more in depth spreadsheet, it will take time. I have using a spreadsheet for the past while, but it is a pain to keep it updated.

Hoping to see some awesome changes soon :)

Could you expand this to keep track of jobbers? For more of a commercial foraging operation?
