app BDO Mobile App


10 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)


[Update - 4/7] I’ve really pared down the features upon feedback from guildmates as well as seriously considering how BDO is currently designed.  It’s turned more into a “companion app” than a replacement for leaving one’s computer on all day/night. I actually think it’s much more realistic with these changes.

So I've been thinking about this mainly as a way to continue to participate in in-game/game-related activities, but not having to leave my computer on all the time.  I think there should be a mobile app developed for iOS/Android devices.  It would offer simple functionality, such as:

  • View character information
    • View inventory, pearl inventory, equip, profile, and skill tree
  • Monitor the marketplace
    • Browse the server/channel’s marketplace listings as you would in-game
    • Receive Marketplace notifications (via push)
  • View guild information
    • Activity points, roster, war declarations, etc.
  • View acquired knowledge

Updated original post with a much more feasible/realistic idea for an app as well as removed any discussion of pricing.

BUT THE GOLD SELLERS WOULD EXPLOIT IT ZOMG!!!1!!

JK it sounds like a great idea, though I'd rather like to see the ability to manage workers and nodes more than watch the marketplace. Since everything is fixed in the marketplace there's no good way to play it like you could with wow's mobile app for the auction house.

Don't forget Guild Chat. I have to give Blizzard one thing, the Armory app was amazing.

Yeah I originally had worker management as an idea, but I nixed it when I started thinking more "realistically" based on how the game behaves now. I would really love to be able to manage my workers from a simplified (mobile/tablet) interface.

The marketplace feature is really just for you to check off-hand or get notifications when you may be AFK.  Sometimes I just wonder how much something has been going for on my server.  I think actual buying/registering should be kept in-game only (at least for now).  Thinking about it iteratively, deeper marketplace and worker/node functionality could be added.  However, I'd honestly be happy just to be able to check my character profiles, equip, storages, and guild  information.

 

Don't forget Guild Chat. I have to give Blizzard one thing, the Armory app was amazing.

Would definitely be nice; possible in a later iteration. I might update the OP as a sort of rough roadmap for development. I'd love to see guild chat and the aforementioned worker management features at some point. But thinking as a developer, I'm trying to limit scope creep, at least initially.  The Armory app was definitely amazing! I'm definitely spoiled by FFXIV's Lodestone and WoW's Armory--even as a web-based interface as opposed to a mobile app. I just like being able to view/share info about my characters and gameplay.

 

I'm loving the feedback guys; I'll keep checking this post and updating things!

The chat server may be entirely decoupled from the rest of the game. Especially if they are using something like IRC, or any protocol they didn't write themselves.
