Niarja - Wurm Online Live Server Data & Skill Compare

231 posts in this topic

Niarja is a Wurm Online web application with two features: "Live Server Data" and "Skill Compare"


 


Live Server Data



Niarja Live Server Data is an application that parses all tweets sent out by the Wurm Twitter accounts. It is available for every server and can be used for things like:


  • Looking for living uniques, deceased uniques, or any upcoming public unique slaying events
  • Getting a high level view of all global casts (and who cast them)
  • Looking at all founded and disbanded villages (with some limitations*)
  • Viewing kingdom broadcasts
  • Complete snapshot of current kingdom leadership
  • Artifact charge times
  • Champion information
  • Tower conquerings and HotAs
  • Volcanic activity
  • Mission construction activity
  • and more!

You can also search for players and villages, and look at any "high scores".


 


Everything is displayed in your local time zone, so no more confusion with time conversions.


 


Niarja is optimized for your phone or tablet!


 


I don't agree with having this much information available in one location.


 


That's not a comment for me, that's a comment for Rolf and whoever handles the Twitter accounts. I am doing nothing more than organizing information that already exists. If you want to "-1", go do it in the Suggestions forum.


 


I see something wrong or I have a suggestion for a feature.


 


Let me know! Over the last week or so I've been doing a sort of "live" test of Niarja. I fixed a few minor bugs with uniques and everything seems to be running perfectly now. If you notice anything wrong let me know. Additionally, if you want new features let me know about that too and I'll get to adding them. I have some very interesting plans for the future...



 


Skill Compare



Niarja Skill Compare


 


What do you do when you want to share your skills with friends, or sell your character? You take a skill dump. And boy, skill dumps are ugly. Wurm Online has 140 skills and a skill dump is just a line-by-line list of every skill you have. Wurm skills aren't even in a particularly useful order. People have developed skill highlighting applications just to make some sense out of them. Even now it's hard - you're basically looking a new skill dump every time you see one. You have no idea what order things appear it, what skills will be highlighted (or how), or what the format of the dump will even be.


 


Niarja Skill Compare solves all of that. Here's my character sheet. Character sheets show off your skills in a consistent format. They also show what you're best at, and let you compare your skills to the rest of the Wurm world. They even let you track your skillgain progress! For example, let's click on my digging skill and take a look:

Clicking on my Digging skill has shown that on Freedom Cluster, I am the #1 Digger who has publicly shared their skills! And that's pretty great...but I'm also the only person currently on Niarja Skill Compare, so I doubt that'll last. You also see a graph right below. I've uploaded three skill dumps and Niarja Skill Compare has created that graph for me to check my skill progress. After you've uploaded more than one skill dump you can click on any skill and start seeing that.


 


Looks Cool! I don't want to share my data with everyone!


 


You don't have to! After registering an account, you get to decide if your data is public (shared with everyone), or private. When your character data is public you'll be able to compare your skills to other players. When your character data is private you're not allowed to do that, but you gain the ability to keep your information to yourself. But don't worry - you have a code you can give out to your friends if you want to share your data to select individuals.


 


I Play on Freedom and Epic, will this break?


 


Nope! Your character maintains separate skill sets for the Freedom and Epic clusters. You can even toggle privacy separately. For example, you can have a public Freedom Cluster skill dump and a private Epic Cluster skill dump, all for the same character!


 


Can I use this to help sell a character?


 


Easily. You're able to post public characters to the "For Sale" area. Just give us a link to your thread in For Sale or Auctions and we'll feature your character sale right on the front page, giving your potential buyers an easy way to check out your skills.


 


Look at the Best and Compare with Others!


 


On the main page of Niarja Skill Compare, you can view the top and most active players. You can also search to see the top players in a particular skill (but only the ones who have shared their data publicly!). You can even search for specific players.

Interesting. This is pretty much what i wanted my site to be, except i never got around to implementing most of that :P


 


If you're interested i can share the tweet history for freedom server in an SQL or CSV file, i have tweets going back well into 2013 for most freedom servers.

That would be incredibly helpful. I definitely did not intend to step on any of your work. I'm not much of a unique guy - I'm much more interested in what can be done with some of the other data. I need to get to bed but tomorrow morning I'll shoot over an email address and you can send me a CSV if you'd like. Thanks!

Check your PMs :P

 

Edit: If anyone else wants access to the data - PM me and i'll give you a link. I'd post it in the open but people randomly downloading it will kill my dropbox and i don't have time right now to put it on some proper hosting look here: http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/120023-too-many-wurms-updated-thread/#entry1251463

Looks like the Elevation shutdown is going as expected. In a few hours I'll kill that unique entry. I'll also fill in the tweets helpfully provided by bdew tonight.

In related news - a new Champion White Dragon has spawned on the Freedom cluster!

Edit: And it's dead! Initially a few extra slayers but I finally pushed out the code change to fix that. Grats to Wild MR for coming over to Freedom and sniping some more drake.

I've filled in most of bdew's historical data (except for settlements and historic kingdom titles) and it looks like I probably didn't screw it up too badly. bdew gave me a few unique kills that Too Many Wurms didn't have and they bring Cerber up to a total of 61 kills (was: 58)! I've added links to each players' kill tweet to both the unique view and the player view. Now there's actually...proof.


 


Edit: Looks like there might be a problem with number of champion kills. Not exactly a critical issue, I'll fix it tomorrow :)

Bump for righteousness.


 


And


 


I'm just going to *relax* in this thread not about whether GM's should be publicly explicating why they have deleted comments possibly derailing and griefing WTS threads begun by possible scammers reported as griefers and possibly already dealt with by GM action.


 


Ahh.


 


Thanks again.

I've filled in most of the older data and make some changes to the server views. Everything should be good except for Champion kill counts, which I still need to fix up.


 


13 living uniques right now - get out there and do your part!

Hello Wurm Friends,


 


I just pushed out a few minor (but nice) things in preparation for a fairly large update that's coming over the next few days. I'm pretty excited about it and I think you'll really enjoy it and get a lot of use out of it.


 


In case you didn't notice, Niarja worked pretty well on your phone or tablet! Pretty well. Almost perfect. Not perfect. I have fixed basically all of the issues. Even with a narrow phone used vertically everything should look good and be easy to read. Graphs also properly redraw themselves now when you change your viewport orientation or resize your browser window. Try it out! There's still an issue with the main menu when using a specific view size (you'll often run into it if you're using an 8 or 9 inch tablet held vertically), but that'll be completely resolved when the large update is released.

Niarja Skill Compare is live. Check out the main forum thread.


 


Let's see what else happened with Niarja...


 


------


 


-Epic and Chaos now include outpost conquerings/neutralizations/etc


-Epic and Chaos now show notable kills (champion kills and kills of notable players)


-Unique timers now show "In Progress" rather than a negative date when an event is past due


-HotAs now show "The Hunt is on!" when a hunt is in progress, rather than a negative date


-HotA timers have been moved to the top of the Chaos & Epic pages


-Views for Kingdom Broadcasts have been a bit improved and they're less critical of input data now


-Looking at the death of an individual unique is a bit nicer now.


-Fixed an issue where graph fonts didn't render properly in firefox on ubuntu


-Everything on the site now requires traffic to pass through SSL


-An issue with the width of the main menu on tablets has been addressed


-Global spell casts, villages, and other various views have been fixed so they show your local time rather than UTC


 


Coming up next - bug fixes and more improvements & new features on the main page of Niarja.

just adding that idea here aswell.

 

 

Tools like this u can use to do diffrent area work, like in merchant area, when u do a advert about ur self, so do some sections to link a custom section for that area, that will make this site so value for so many ppl in wurm =)

Very good work here =)

I just love this. I have been wanting a way to see who owns certain villages. Now I can search. Also a way to see what certain players have done. Thanks so much to all who contribute to this.


 


For the Skill Compare: Please can you change the red highlight for 90 skills it is distorting the text to make it unreadable.
