Latest beta updates

We’re back with a few more updates for the beta site!

  • Recipes have been updated with the latest data scraped from the Lodestone for FFXIV patch 3.5.
  • Searching for recipes ignores case and accents so that typing “poele a frire” will find “Poêle à frire” in the French recipe names. (#105)
  • Ingenuity and Ingenuity II scaling has been updated for level 60 2-4 star recipes, although Careful Synthesis II is still not accurate enough when used with Ing/Ing2.
  • Character importing has been switched from XIVSync to XIVDB since the XIVSync API has been decommissioned. Please see this blog post on XIVDB about the recent gearset reset and this blog post for more information about the gearset feature. Only characters with gearset information for one or more crafting classes can be imported.
  • Other UI improvements have been made to the character import dialog: sorting results by name and keeping the search field always visible when scrolling the results.
  • The XIVDB tooltips for actions are loaded faster during application startup.
  • A loading indicator is displayed during application startup and when switching languages to indicate when the application is ready to use.
  • When generating the macro text, if the last macro would contain only a single action it is instead added to the previous macro and the macro completion announcement in the previous macro is omitted.

Behind the scenes there has been a lot of code refactoring to make the code follow the latest AngularJS style guidelines and a few libraries have been updated.

IMPORTANT: You must force your browser to hard reload the website to get all the changes. In Chrome this can be down by holding Ctrl and Shift when clicking the refresh button. In other browsers, you may have to clear your cache first.

Please let us know in the comments below or by filing a bug on GitHub if you notice any problems. However, please note that improvements to the accuracy of the simulator will be difficult since we no longer subscribe to FFXIV and are unable to test those types of changes.
