    I will say that the hover gets aggravating when I am not trying to open the menu but accidentally slide over it and would probably prefer clicks but I also understand wanting less clicks.

    I continue to lobby for it. Unless, that is, you can also provide flawless Internet access at every convention I go to. :-)

    posted a message on Map Pack(s) Not Available as Compendium Content

    Per Adam's request, my feedback regarding why I feel it would be better to have map packs as compendium items is as follows:

    Map packs would be stored and accessible in any browser from any device / internet-connected PC versus being downloaded to a hard drive and locked away on a PC somewhere. Cloud-storage aside, having it available through DDB is a much more convenient option.

    Mega menus do NOT work in Internet Explorer 11 (on Windows 10).

    Yeah, that's unfortunate, but IE 11 is not one of our supported browsers and we are not going to be able to spend time doing much to address something that old.

    We have 0.4% of our users that use that browser and version, and we are confident that the recent news that Microsoft is going with a Chromium solution for edge means that IE will be sunset (and 11 is due to be sunset in less than a year anyway).

    I hypothesize you're stuck with that in a heavily-controlled environment at work, and I empathize, but we have to draw the line somewhere to ensure we're using our resources most effectively.

    Thanks!

     That's totally fair and understandable. I just wanted to make sure you were aware. :-)

    Why don't we have any honor or sanity ability score toggles in character creation yet? Is it because this would result in adjusting the standard array and the point buy system? 

     They're not part of standard D&D 5E.

     Maybe not, but they are an optional rule in the 5e DMG and there are other optional rules already built into dndbeyond like  encumbrance, feats, and multiclassing. Yes those are more popular optional rules, but that doesn't mean that there's not an interest for honor and sanity... At the very least sanity.

     Yes, but everything you mentioned is in the PHB. I'm not arguing that you're incorrect or that there isn't interest. In fact, I'm not arguing at all. I'm just pointing out they're probably not high on the priority list. But I'm only making assumptions based on the fact that they're not standard rules and they don't get much play. I could be completely off base. :-)

    My personal concern is offline access.... Conventions often don't have free wi-fi and cell signal tends to be spotty at best.

     While everything i need is on the roadmap... His point is... Most of it is in the far back burner. While i agree he could of said it otherwise... You all cannot deny the fact that a whole team, let alone three, have accomplished far less then a single individual. Taking the chrome extension which already gives initiative trackers and other features this site has been boasting to be in development for a whole year.

    His deal is quite simple...

    By the time this site will be done... About 2 other editions will have came out. Sorry but by comparisions to the competitions... Roll20 et fantasy grounds have been much much much faster in delivering content. Taking only 2 years for a full system that allows its players and dm to create their stuff. Including the ability to create your own adventures. And at that in only 2 years.

    If i had to guess based on the past 2 years...

    Id say they are about another 3 years before we have half the roadmap.

    Thats my 2 cents on the guys original post and why he thinks that way. I really really love ddb and am promoting it. But right now what my players want the most is characters without internet. On their phones. And also... No payment per month just for more character slots. The subs are weird really.

    Thats what my players want and they be wanting it for a year now.

     

    I don't normally agree with you DnDPaladin (respectfully, differing opinions on most matters), but I do agree with what you have said, especially the parts I have bolded. I have never realized it until now that Kabalistus' chrome extension has added a lot more features that we have been asking for, and to my knowledge, he's doing it all himself (though I could be wrong on that). That being said, chrome extensions cannot function on mobile, which makes the mobile device still unable to do much of the same features, which is just odd, considering D&D Beyond is a full team working full time.

    Just like you said, I love D&D Beyond and am an advocate for the site and what it's doing, but I'm with you in the sense that I don't understand how others are able to get us these features much faster than the actual team.

     As a software engineer, it's quite simple to explain: If I'm working to maintain feature X I don't have time to implement feature Y. The more complex a system gets, the more time gets devoted to maintaining it or redesigning it to make it easier to maintain. Time being used to maintain and improve doesn't show up as flashy new features but it DOES make the overall system work better in the long run.

    I disagree. All Depends on the user. Only time I need to get into the builder is for ASI or other features that require a selection. And my group doesn’t level up mid game so I don’t need to get into the builder for it. On mobile I don’t need to build anything, just need to pull up my character on game day to play from. 

     It does depend on the user, you're right, but for me, if I'm at a convention with shoddy Internet connectivity (my number one use case for offline [character] access) and I play a mod or two and need to level up before the next mod I need access to the character builder.

    I've been looking around for a bit on the forums. will there be a character builder built into the DNDBEYOND iOS App in the roadmap?

    There will be a character SHEET in the mobile app. I'm not sure whether the builder will be part of that.

    The roadmap is linked in the 1st post of this thread. :) 

     Won't be much use if we can't manage our characters on the go.

    My OCD is bothering me.. lol.. Shouldn't the "Mobile Beta - Character Sheet" be categorized with the green "In Progress" label? since you moved it to "In Progress (Currently in Development)"

    Quite the attention to detail - maybe I should hire you.

     

    I've been pointing out hundreds of minor flaws throughout the entire site since its inception and yet I have never been offered employment :(

    Unsure if this is the right place to put this or not, but is it possible we could get more slots for character sheets? 6 feels like so few, and there's no apparent way to purchase or unlock more of them. Is this a feature which may be coming up soon?

     

    If you want more character slots, there's a subscription option that gives you unlimited slots.
