What more would you like to see on the Player Page?
« on: April 29, 2007, 18:29 »

I'm in the finishing stages of the current beta development. Two things left to do are fixing keymovie support and enhancing the Player Data page. So I'd like to hear from you -- what more data you'd like to see on the player page? Bear in mind that the player data carries only "kills per monster per weapon per difficulty" and "deaths per level per challenge per difficulty".

What "screens" or "tables" you'd like to see in your Player Data viewer?

Death per enemy comes to mind. Or death by barrel/lava/acid :p
Maybe weapons stats. e.g. the game counts the turns you spend with each weapon in your hand and the player stats page calculates the % from it.
Another interesting thing might be the number of times the player cleared each special level.

The number of times each type of monster was resurrected/lever spawned.
Could probably better fit into the mortem, actually.

How many of each type of monster you killed with a pistol, shotgun or a melee weapon on each difficulty. Everytime I kill something with a pistol or shotgun, or I ran up to AV or A with my chainsaw, I've been thinking it would be nice to see how many times I've actually done it.

Could maybe link that to the mortem too.

Kills:
88 Demons, of which 12 with a pistol, 6 with a shotgun, and 2 with a melee weapon.

On the subject of mortems, can we bring back the small descriptions of each level you were on in the mortem? I liked looking back at the end and seeing what kind of levels I got and where.

As for the actual player page, causes of death and their frequencies would be really cool (killed 33 times by an imp, 11 by a hell knight, 21 by an arachnotron, 13 by exploding barrels, etc.)

I'd agree. A percentage of each would be nice. Maybe the main page could shot favorite weapon (most time spent wielding) and bane (most times killed by it).

Only other thing I can think of is like... I dunno. A medals page. With random miscellaneous ego-rewards for things like "Played 100 games" or "Won 10 times", or some such.

Okay, This idea probably wont be any good...But possible a vanity picture with a page to itself?

Just ASCII art like the 'M'ore function when aiming, Except carrying your most-used weapon, or the weapon carried when you died. Possibly affected by traits...like, the hellrunner trait may have removed the helmet and shoulder pads of his armor for extra speed? Reloader might have an extra couple of clips on his shoulder, or a few shells on his shotgun?

I dunno, I guess i'm just vain.

Just for curiosity's sake I wouldn't mind seeing how many barrels were exploded in total, how many wall sections were destroyed, how many levers were pulled (and what happened when they were pulled).  Odd stuff like that.

If you did want to add more data fields to the statistics:

* Count of number of items picked up (or used, for powerups / AoI), dropped, destroyed by player fire, monster fire, barrel; generated, left behind (still on level when descending).

* Total monsters generated, also per type.

* Counts for monsters revived by arch-viles, and by being on N!.

* Total floors visited.

* Total special floors visted (or count for each one).

* Total # tiles illuminated (Would also allow a global exploration percentage).

. . .

I'm out. People already mentioned barrels exploded and levers pulled and such. Maybe add barrels generated and levers generated. (I could see things to go for in a mortem being 100% of exporation, levers, barrels killed, etc, just for fun.)

I don't think these numbers are significant across games. Percentage of monsters killed per monsters generated is shown in the mortem, as is a list of visited floors.

I'd be interested in a list showing how many times the player was killed by <cause of death>. And maybe a list of challenges completed by the player (although this is a reflected by player rank).
