History

BDO Planner, or BDO Gear Calculator as it was originally called, was a small project that was created initially by MrEliasen.

When I started working on the Gear Calculator, Shadowtrance had picked it up and started updating the databases and making minor edits.

I thought it was cool and decided to start adding to it too, eventually changing it very drastically from into what is now BDO Planner, adding features I wanted to see in it that weren't there before, from simple things like adding tooltips to items, to more advanced things like saving setups.

Over time, the changes that were made required more than a github page could offer, we needed dynamic content and database support to allow us to save setups properly rather than just as throw away links.

Now we are developing, or have developed, a completely new version of BDO Planner that no longer builds on the legacy code and instead is a standalone new website. This is allowing us to add a lot of features that we wern't able to in the past.

You can see some of our plans for the new version on our Trello board.

Operating Costs

With moving from github pages to our own hosting, and getting a domain, it means we're now starting to incur operating costs.

Fortunately they are quite low right now, but we want to keep the site ad-free, because let's be honest, no one wants ads, they ruin the layout of the site, generally, they're intrusive, and most people will block them anyway.

This page was created mainly to help support us with the operating costs for the site. Eventually, we'd like to move to better more powerful hosting if possible, and maybe to buy a beer for us to say thanks for the work!

Rewards

Currently, we can't offer much in the way of rewards for supporting us.

All Patrons will get access to Patron only areas on our Discord, as well as early access to new versions of BDO Planner when they're available.

In the future we're also looking to give special perks to our supporters, although we don't have any details on this currently.
