rubbergimp.com (Very early version!)
Following on from my post about writing a “gimp uniform generator” in Python for myself to use, I talked to Rocket about having a system like that, but allowing it to be used by anyone, generating a list of their own gear for them to wear. It seemed like a fun idea, but way beyond my skills at the time.
I continued on my Python course, experimenting with my own gimp generator, until I started to learn enough to realise that maybe Rocket’s idea wasn’t so out of my reach after all.
I’ve spent way too long looking at screens of code, but today I can say that a super early version of the gimp uniform generator is live at rubbergimp.com.
Basically, you register for an account (so that only you can see your own content), add your own gear, specify which body parts and layers apply to each piece of gear, and then the system can (hopefully!) generate a “gimp uniform” for you that makes sense.
One important thing: please make sure to read the help page before starting to add your gear! This will teach you how the system works and help you understand the best way to add your gear to the site.
Special thanks have to go out to MakoGimp, Rubberfreak and Rocket, who must be absolutely fed up of hearing about this thing by now. They’ve given me a lot of advice and ideas, and helped me when I was ready to throw my laptop across the room in frustration…
Feel free to check out the site, play around with it, but I can’t say this enough: this is an early version. There will be bugs and issues.
