basically this is just a glorified blog website that'll sometimes have TLDR's made by me and also with quick references to other people's handy tools, and a few poorly made "tools" made by me. i'm hesitent on posting about this, but this is probably a small morale boost for me to see if there's any interest in this website again. the last interation a year ago was surprisingly hitting a decent amount of traffic but i never fully evolved into what i wanted it to be. at the beginning of 2018, i had a family emergency which took away a large majority of my time for 6 months, and was overpaying for hosting by a lot which led me to the decision of not renewing apbhouse.com. even then, this current new iteration might take a long time to be what i want the final product to be. regardless, if it seems like i'm helping people out, i'll be glad to do it. [funny side note, the only comments i remember from the last website was someone being very upset at G1 for removing Refer a Friend, and another person commenting 'good job, keep it up' which genuinely made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.] there might be some of you that remember this small website about a year ago. i don't even know how to summarize what it was before and i still don't know what i'm trying to make of it. it essentially seemed like a blog, but was also sort of a wiki at the same time, and kept archive of events and tracked g1 officials and tried to give criticism when deserved. it also tried to be new-player friendly in talking about certain gameplay tactics and technique. i guess if i want to live under it's true name, i want it to basically encompass everything. a house full of useful and useless shit. a house you can feel welcome to. i'm decently satisfied with the front page and think it's pretty useful at the moment. however, it is using a basic theme on wordpress but as time goes by and i learn more, it is definitely subject to change. house feature: what's the house feature? just an easy way to promote content creators and hopefully create more interaction within the community again. again, there isn't really a critera at the moment but since it's just me, they'll be handpicked and hopefully i have good taste. can be anything from youtube videos, twitch clips, deviantart pages, etc. doubt there'll be enough traffic to have it as a "daily" swap so featured people might stay on for anywhere from 3 days to 7 days. tldr blogposts: i've started keeping track of events since December 4th, 2018. the previous interation of apb.house probably kept track of events for more than a year but no more than 2 years. i definitely will consider going backwards to try and add prior events. right now i'm doing something what i call TLDR for the blogposts. it primarily just functions as a quick summary of what a blogpost is about so you can quickly skim through what the topics might be mentioned. also, i just noticed that the TLDR's might still be long for some but it still tries to be informative without excluding too much detail. i think LO deleted or archived the really old G1 blogposts. maybe I'll do something of a "State of APB" each month to make it sound more dramatic. ads: if there are ads, the only ones i'll utilize are banner ads. no pop ups, no full screen, nothing intrusive. if you do see any ads that don't sit nicely and out of the way of the main content, please tell me asap. ads will be for the upkeep of website > community contests/giveaways/events > money to buy a nice hot bowl of pho. that's the priorization of the pennies i'll receive for the forseeable future. i also like to be as transparent as i can with things i work on because i enjoy being a helpful and honest individual. i'll most likely keep this post updated with what im currently working on and what i want to add/fix/remove in the future. if things look funky on website, that means im currently breaking, trying to add something. currently working: getting started guide + scrim organizer in queue: scrim organizer still need a logo more fucking content marketplace tax calculator loadout randomizer getting started guide [big] finished: marketplace tax calculator scrim organizer edit: scrim organizer is finished, able to enter player names, and it'll create two teams for you. it'll also assign random weapons but i don't have a complete list for that. later functionality should include checkboxs to customize ability to randomize ONLY smgs or ONLY secondaries. the list of weapons available to randomize isn't complete either, i haven't played in so long, i wasn't sure which weapons are just reskins. if someone has the extra time to state them, that'd be neat and appreciated. edit1: okay i do it. gathering all the names onto an excel sheet because i don't keep up anymore. default randomizer will only random weapons available to everyone without ARMAS/Joker Tickets. checkboxes will allow options to randomize certain categories, and add weapons obtainable via ARMAS/JT. visuals would be nice later on but obviously just aiming for clean functionality at this point. design isn't my forte. should be done within a day or two. i always find motivation late at night. maybe it's because i know i can avoid doing it because i'll probably sleep soon. edit2: three options available for the scrim organizer, default, joker ticket, and legendary. edit3: added a g1c calculator that was totally not inspired by ffbans
