Online Quest & Item Creator

Post by Torta » Tue Oct 29, 2019 4:15 pm

Hello, young turtle developers,

Our web-development turtle Xerron's created an online DB Tool which generates queries compatible with Turtle WoW and vmangos world database structures.

Create new amazing items or quests, use it on your local playground or share them with you friends.

https://dev.turtle-wow.org

Quest Contest:

Create an quest for your favorite location and share the link in this thread. We will pick the most interesting ones and add them to the game! The quest should be lore appropriate and story should fit to the game lore and do not conflict with the existing stories.

Image

Please contact Xerron#0246 in our Discord if you have questions.

Developer note: please don't use special characters ( üöä, /, —, etc) in the editor, it will bug out your save.

I made a high level shaman quest chain. I couldn't figure out how to make a quest starting item, or how to determine quest ids for the quests, so I hope you'll forgive me the incompletion.

A Softly Glowing Shard begins from [A Softly Glowing Shard], which would have a very low chance to drop from various 55+ enemies.

Completing that quest leads you to A Test of Strength, in which the shaman must dispatch three high level enemies.

After doing so, you recieve the raid quest, Punish the Firelord's Betrayal. I had always thought it kind of dumb that half of the bosses of Molten Core had a quest to kill them, but the other half did not, which inspired this quest. The objective is to kill Magmadar, Garr, Baron Geddon, and Golemagg. Upon completion, you receive a totem, the [Wind-Kissed Shard]

Finally, you recieve a quest to slay Ragnaros himself, The Firelord's Fall. Upon completion, the shaman recieves [Stormfrenzy, Vengeful Glaive of the Windlord]

If I wasn't so incompetent I'd like to make a post Naxx quest chain that leads into Karazhan, the Caverns of Time and finally, a way to open the Dark Portal and enter Outland, that would go extremely well with all the other stuff added in the server, since that *was* planned in vanilla, as you can see by checking the Black Morass map from the beta, and the actual Outland map from the beta aswell, also in the Collector's Edition CD, a dev said that there would be content not accesible at release, then he started talking about opening the dark portal, but yeah, that would take a loooooooong time

Items have start_quest field, this needs to be the same id as quest's entry field. Any entry over 15000 is safe to use.

After spending a few hours learning the whole thing, I was badly surprised that the links to the individual quests don't get saved properly. (eg end quest text is displayed as desription in the linked quest, missing titles etc). So what should I do now? Post the whole thing as SQL code in a spoiler section that cant be edited as easily or something else?

P.S. I'm editing 3 quests (they are a chain) simultaneously into 3 subfiles (save to browser thingy) is that the reason the saves go bad?

P.P.S. The quest also requires 2 custom humanoid NPCs and 2 objects in the world (a sing post and a statue) to become interactable? Is that even possible or I should rewrite the whole thing?

Hey,

Sorry for your saving inconvenience.
I did some quick saving tests and my quest title/details/description loaded right from browser.
Saving to browser uses quest title as a main quest identifier, since it's a chain, did you use different names ?

For the future, to be sure that your quest loads right, save your url in a local text file when you're done editing, but do mind that it changes based on the fields you edit

Custom npcs are possible, we're working on a npc creator as well.

Also, if you don't want to start over or from your 'bad' save, pm me the sql query and i can send you a url to continue editing.

For others who might encounter this problem, don't use special characters (— especially) in title, description, or any other text fields.

Hi I could not for the life of me get rid of the Quest box that is in the way of things.

But Please forgive me if I type out some ideas

1) A helping hand indeed
Aimed at getting higher level Characters helping others in low dungeons. Would need at least 2 others at the dungeon level and have the dungeon gray to you. Reward would be some exp and perhaps a chest or box (with a long cooldown). Can't have people abusing it.

2) A level 30 ish quest set in south shore killing the yetti there 20 would do. Part 2 would be to go into the Orge caves and get parts of a missing trinket. The trinket reward would have to be balanced for the level and not sure if making new trinkets are possible or not on the cards at this moment. Would like a life steal reward of some kind but up to you.

how about a pvp trinket that works like the argent Dawn commission allowing you to collect warsong, ab, or alterac marks after killing an honorable target. Three trinkets total, with no use or stats just a loot option off a corpse . Maybe a quest to turn in a arena master for it.

Was feeling nostalgic (likely a side effect of beating Rag), so I made this quest.

Help A Gnome Out is obtained from a silly little gnome in Gadgetzan. She wants you to help her with collecting bloodpetal sprouts from the un'goro crater, and will pay for the assistance in gold and pizza bottles (burritos).

Story behind the quest (spoilered because it's unimportant and potentially sad?)
My mom was the one who got me into WoW. She was playing MMOs since before Everquest launched, but WoW was the first time I got to play alongside her. I have a lot of fond memories watching from behind her while she raided with her guild, and her main raiding character was Reas, the gnome rogue.

The two big things to know about mom in regards to this quest: She had no qualms hiring children to get things for her (This quest is a direct reference to when she had me farm bloodpetal sprouts for her when she was too busy so she could get the recipe for the Elixir of Brute Force, in fact. She ended up getting it herself in the end. xD), and she had trouble calling things by their proper names. Gadgetron was the big one in Vanilla, and Burning Crusade had Shatner City in Terracotta Forest. It's been a long time since she played and I don't remember if there was a mom-ism for Un'goro, so I called it something that sounded right for her. 'Pizza bottles' was what she called burritos literally one time, and no one in the family ever let her live it down; first of all because it's so completely wrong, and secondly because it's hilarious.

Double spoilered because it's def sad territory now
She passed away unexpectedly last year. I came back to Turtle at a low point because I wanted to recapture the feeling I had exploring Azeroth with her all those years ago. When I did, I never would have expected to be raiding, much less participating in the server first kill of Ragnaros. I wish I could tell her about it, say I made it, too. If you've read this far, I apologize for being sappy and shit, but I double spoilered it. This is on you. If you still have your mom, let her know you care. Call her up. Don't put it off. You never know how much time you have.
