Quipu | BDO Recipe Tool


29 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello guys!


I just wanted to share an app that I've been working on ever since I got into Black Desert Online cooking and alchemy. It started with the usual Google Spreadsheet but then alt-tabbing was too much work and I always had my phone on my dock near me so I figured, why not make one? It's definitely not the first but I am actively working on it to improve it further and add more features! So here it goes...

**********

Currently on Alpha, Quipu is a simple yet packed with features recipe tool and calculator for cooking, alchemy (soon), and more for Black Desert Online (NA/EU).

Features

  • Complete recipe for each dish with the ability to adjust the quantity needed  
  • Sort dishes according to skill level, ingredients/materials and effects (incomplete, only by skill level at the moment)  
  • Ability to search dishes through keywords  
  • Note-taker to quickly save any recipes, notes or reminders  
  • Favorites to quickly access most cooked dishes


Planned Features

  • Alchemy recipe/calculator  
  • Easier access on ingredients that also require cooking (chain recipes, e.g. Dark Pudding requires Oatmeal which requires cooking too)  
  • Alarm/timer for farming and other time-sensitive materials  
  • Better UI  
  • An iOS version  
  • Have an idea? Let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Download it from Google Play!

**********

P.S.
If you are worried about the *permissions* that it requires, don't worry as it is a limitation with the platform that I have used to make the app and I am unable to remove it at this time. It does nothing as you can see from inside the app~ Also, special thanks to http://bddatabase.net!

Looks handy.  I wanted to make something like this for myself but I hardly have time to play as it is.  Thanks OP!

Haha, I'm just a novice AppInventor dabbler. 

Really digging the app so far, the ingredient calculator and notes feature are both super convenient. 

I'll let you know if I find any bugs or anything I think could use improvement.  Good work!

Thank you and you'll get there soon! There are lots of good resources out there. And thank you! I appreciate the help!

Hello! It reminded me of the quipus that I learned about long ago that was used to collect data/keep records :D

Pretty neat, just something quick that I noticed though: Grains are for some reason called cereals in the app.

So for an example go to Beer, says you need 5 cereal instead of 5 grain. Haven't really had time to go through much of the app though as it is late.

At least I've always referred to it as grains, cereal to me is a breakfast food :P

Hmm, good point! I'll definitely look into it but it seems like you are right because it refers to the seeds of the plant (corn, wheat, etc)!

I haven't actually added any ads yet (though I did indicate on Google Play that there will be). Until everything is fixed, it's ad-free for now!

Added to the list. I'll see what I can do! Thank you for the suggestion.

Thank you! And yeah, I'll make sure it's not obstructive cause I hate ads too! Haha.

 

Also everyone, I uploaded an upload that fixes some calculation problems. If you see an update, please apply it!

iOS app? androids are a step backwards for me.

Programming on 2 platforms at the same time is not time-efficient so I am focusing on Android at the moment. That and Apple having more restrictions, and longer approval times will be a lot of work and waiting. Plus, it would be easier to polish it on Android first to make the porting and updating easier.

It will come soon!

Hey, thank you very much for making the app, it looks great ! :)

But I got a problem: I just downloaded it and everytime I try to click on a dish the program crashes "Unfortunately, Quipu (BDO) has stopped". Do you know what the problem could be ?

Hello! May I ask what phone and what version of Android you are using? :o And does it still crash after restarting the app?

I am using a Xiaomi Redmi note 3 with 5.0.2 LRX22G (Lollipop). Sadly yes, restarting dosen´t help neither does rebooting my phone do anything :(

Thank you for letting me know. I'll run some tests and check what's causing it. Have you also tried reinstalling the app?
