Trait, morph, and equipment data in spreadsheet for general consumption

Devs! I beseech you! Is there any raw, easily consumed data format of things like traits, morphs, equipment, etc for EP 2.0?

In 1E, absolutely most useful thing that was not the core rulebook was Kindalas' auto-fill excell character generator sheet. No contest.

When the panopticon came out, I spent time adding gear to the lookup tables by hand... I even translated a lot of that into individual sheets for others to scrape and reuse in apps and macros:

http://itsmax.net/pub/EclipsePhase/data/

I was hoping (so much hope!) that in developing EP 2.0, the designers had been doing something similar as part of their internal dev practices and could share it with the community in its raw data format. Or something similar. That would give homebrew a *huge* jump-start.

I saw the thread about a Wiki (http://eclipsephase.com/question-about-second-edition-official-wiki) and that's probably useful for a lot of things, but having a central data spreadsheet would make updating that wiki even easier!

Please and thank you?

Thanks for linking the files.

Thanks for linking the files. I am parsing EP1 data into database. Will check out your tables.

After that parsing 2e could be really easy since the system there is less complicated.

There's a thread in progress

There's a thread in progress on the reddit group and a number of different data files that are coming together for 2E that cover the information you're describing. https://github.com/nerdhaus/ep2/tree/master/data is where I've been keeping my copies but I believe there's an effort to centralize them

Thanks. I am Shadewalking

Thanks. I am Shadewalking_Bard there.

I meant porting database structure not data itself.

Maybe that is incorrect use of word "parsing", but I invoke foreigners right to bad English ;-)

Data

All the data I've collected/generated is here: https://github.com/Arokha/EP2-Data

I believe this is all tables and descriptions from the book, with the exception of the sample characters, and threats.

It's presented on website format here: https://arokha.com/eclipsehelper/#/quickrules

It should be relatively trivial to transform the json into a spreadsheet or other database format (I mean nosql like mongo is basically json anyway so if you use nosql then.....)

I love the fact that since

I love the fact that since there is an open license, what started as asking the devs to do something turned into the community making it happen.

Thanks Arokha, Eaton, and others.

I made my own 1e character

I made my own 1e character gen spreadsheet, and will likely do that again with 2e. I use lots of vba and don't go through the trouble to get my spreadsheets signed so I can't really distribute them as most vba ends up setting off macro virus warnings and can't be downloaded or easily emailed. My sheet is generally easier to use than most, as most things you just select a dropdown item and the code does all the work in the background, or you click a button and get a new field skill entry to work with, etc.

While a good group of tables would be useful, I generally have to reformat ones created by other people so I can use them with my code.

I suppose if anyone is interested in a copy of my 1e, I could email it as a text file that you then change the extension to xlsm and have your virus detection yell at you about. I don't compile my vba (so I can update it on the fly) therefore if you are worried about viruses you can read the code before enabling macros to ensure nothing nefarious is occurring.

I'll create a similar 2e sheet once I get a copy of the 2e rules, though it isn't a huge priority for me. I don't usually bother with first printings because errata and (lack of) supplements.

I'd be interested in that 1.0

I'd be interested in that 1.0 sheet if only for reading and education

Character Sheet

I made a sheet if you would like it: https://arokha.com/eclipsehelper/#/sheet

Web based, one-click buttons to resleeve to morphs from the book, one-click to add traits, gear, etc.
