I’ve got a couple feature suggestions:
This is hardly a deal-breaker either way, but it would be cool if the background color for each character’s info matched the main color of that character. For example, Grave would be blue, Jaina would be red, Midori green, and Rook grey. If you do that, maybe include a color blind mode as well that reverts it to being character-agnostic.
I’m considering buying the Panda vs G. Panda pack from the Sirlin Games store at some point, so I dug up the stats for G. Panda to make sure of what I’d be getting. It would be nice if G. Panda was included in this tool so that others don’t have to go through what I did to find the info.
However! In my opinion, G. Panda should not be included in the normal character select, and should instead be a toggle for Lum. Here’s my reasoning:
- G. Panda isn’t available on the digital version of Yomi, and most people using this tool probably don’t want to have to look past a character they can’t use to get to the ones they can.
- The Panda vs G. Panda pack is limited edition, so at some point it may become impossible for people to buy it; those people also wouldn’t want to have to look past a character they can’t use.
- Most of G. Panda’s moveset is identical to Lum’s, so it makes sense to have it be a toggle anyway.
One thing to consider is how to handle a matchup comparison between Lum and G. Panda. The main issues I see are that you currently can’t select a mirror match with the characters that are available (which makes sense, since that wouldn’t be very helpful) and that doing a move comparison between mostly identical characters would have a lot of redundancy. For the former, I would have G. Panda appear as an opponent if and only if you’ve selected Lum (otherwise Lum appears as an option instead, even for G. Panda). I don’t know how hard that would be to implement, but it seems like the best way to handle that. For the latter, maybe merge any identical moves on the list of moves and make it clear that they’re the same for both characters somehow? Then the ones that are different would stand out more.
I’m not familiar with github, but if you could help me get that set up I could put in any info you need for both characters except for the “best combos” and “good combos” (I’m not a Lum player, I’ve just been researching a limited-edition thing).
