This time I didn't have to fix GameData :)

 

If you go to https://poe2.peardox.com/exported/ you can now get the prettified JSON of exported/design

 

These can be read an any decent editor without plugins

 

Soz it took so long this time - been busy (was reminded this AM)

Silly question, but someone needs to ask on behalf of the uneducated: What does the prettified version do? I mean, what's been prettified exactly, and what effect does the prettification have?

They are more comfortable to open and to read for modding, and that save some time. In the previous version instead some gamedatabundle had some typo errors, space, wrong commas and so on, so peardox have rettified them and then have also provided the json version of those files.

Now after a check(of him)  in 1.2,  the gamedatabundles seem properly formatted so he just shared the json archive.

I believe it's just that, but i could also be wrong.

Prettified means human readable.

 

If you open something like exported/design/items.gamedatabundle it's all on one line (machine readable)

 

Computers don't much care about white space but humans do

 

The prettified versions are easy to read by us mere humans. Everything is properly spaced and indented.

 

You'll find that most Modders write their mods using prettified JSON as it's far easier to understand and update. Also as Mods are small in size a few extra k don't matter.

 

From a delivery standpoint someone providing a large amount of data like OBS wanna make everything as small as possible.

 

For example items.gamedatabundle is currently 6,115k whereas the prettified version is 13,094k

 

Only Modders are really interested in the prettified versions, everyone else wants the smaller file sizes

 

If we wrote something HUGE then we'd probably pack the mod (the reverse of prettify is just as easy)

Nope - just prettified them, OBS fixed their export in 1.2.0

 

I wan't going get into the previous versions topic as it's no longer relevant :)

Easier to grep the stuff

 

Not everyone has Windows

 

It's educational for new modders

 

Easier to understand

 

Requed by @Kilay (prob for easy searching)

 

Takes 10 seconds (not even that) to process

 

I'll stick a timer on it next time - wrote this months ago

 

Finds Bows simply in under a second (helps if I'm told if it's DLC)

A question: why did you waste your time developing and releasing it, when you can just install JSTool for Notepad++?

 

Cuz newbie modders doesn't know that, and btw it's time consuming. Any kind of stuff that can save time for me is useful.

Finally got around to uploading the new prettified JSon for 2.1.0

 

https://poe2.peardox.com/exported/

 

Had it for a few days (did it immediately cos it takes all of a minute once I get the game directory to my local server)

Most of the professional coding editors [for windows] just press CTRL + ALT + J to prettify JSON. I guess those newly introduced to coding/modding may not know this or have these types of editors but thought I throw that out there for any one new to modding. Wait for it though, some files are large and can take a few seconds (items and status effects acan take up to 8 to 10 seconds) to reformat.

I just had to use notepad++ to manually add in all the notes for the ranger class code from v2.1 to v3.0 I'm working on.  I couldn't find a way to merge the file. Lame!

 

Peardox, if you want a copy of the file to add to the website let me know.  The notes show the name of the abilities so you actually have an idea of what you're working on.  For some reason they were removed in the 3.0 version.  I didn't make labels for the new abilities added by 3.0 yet.

 

Ex:

"Note": "PL 8 Unlock - Vengeful Grief",

As usual this is the prettified JSON for exported (no expansions - I wanna keep it clean as possible)
