is creating Management Tools for The Isle
I am an indie software developer who is putting in some work towards creating tools to help manage private game servers for the Isle.  The goal is to create a tool set and platform that allows server administrators to spend less time working and more time having fun and engaging their community.  I plan to release a version of the tool set as open source.

Now here is where you come in... I need your help to guide, motivate, and design this tool set.  Who better than the users will know what features are important and what is not.  Also through your monetary support, I will be able to purchase licenses for tools, pay for web hosting, and dedicate more of my time towards the development of the platform.

We also run a The Isle server of our own.  Feel free to check it out at AdamantIsle in the server browser.  Furthermore, join our discord: https://discord.gg/MX9jDFr

What is my plan ahead?
Stage 1:  Desktop Application
I will develop a desktop application that allows server admins to connect to their servers to manage their players.  The tool will allow server owners to give access to player files, without exposing their vulnerable control panels.  
Features:
*) Using only a player ID
*) Assign Dinosaur type from drop down (No more looking up dino codes)
*) Assign gender, resting state, leg break.
*) Change Growth, bleed, and colors
*) Possible: Change Location, randomize location

Stage 2:  Simple Web App
The goal is to develop a simple web enabled app that allows for players to register for an account, have grows assigned to them, put in for their grows, and the backend grow them.  The idea is that administrators will simply assign grows and/or point scales and the user will be able to select from a list of available dinosaurs based on their account status.  This will eliminate the need for admins to take time out to grow/spawn new dinosaurs.
Features:
*) Player driven grows/spawns
*) Admin panel allowing points scales for different dinos
*) Accounts with point accrual schedules
*) Automatic processing of grows/spawns
*) Possible: Paypal and Patreon integration
*) Stretch goal: Discord Bot integration

Stage 3:  Web Platform
This is the final goal of the project.  A Wordpress backended web platform that allows for full management of the player base, buying of dinos, paypal integration, etc. etc The main idea is this will be more polished than Stage 2, and will be a more professional platform.  I want to offer self hosting or hosting through me.  This part of the project is going to take a while, but the benefit is it will be possible to recode some of it to use for other games.  This may turn into a game community platform in the future (stage 4?).
Features:
*) Polished Wordpress based web platform
*) Self-hosted options
*) Paypal and Patreon  integration.

These are the goals.  Of course it may come that some of these goals cannot be reached, due to the changing nature of The Isle.  I will communicate throughout the process to let you know where I am at and where I am going with this project.  Your support will make it easier to progress through this project.
