I'm super excited to announce that I'm going fully transparent on what I'm planning for the future of Maxcape! I want 2015 to be an amazing year here, and I would love to get everyone's feedback on what all is planned!
The Max/Completionist Cape Calculator is a RuneScape tool that will help you figure out just how far (or close) you are from maxing your skills. It does this by using your stats in the hiscores. This means, unfortunately, that those not in the hiscores will not be able to be calculated.
Due to a lack of developer tools from RuneScape, it's not possible to track other Completionist requirements. You can do so yourself, however, by creating a profile. Creating a profile is not required to use the Calculator, but it does give you access to some cool features, including: keeping track of your Regular and Trimmed Completionist Cape requirements, setting checkpoints in your skills (displays experience gained since that date on your Calculator page), and just having a cool profile page to share!
You can set a default name on your calculator page by hitting the button to the left of the search bar. This will make it so you can skip past this page in the future and get straight to your calculator.
Thank you for all your support and feedback. I couldn't have gotten this far without you!
Today we passed a huge milestone, 2,000,000 searches.I can't even begin to mention how overwhelming this number is to me. But this isn't about me. This is about you guys that made this possible.
To celebrate, I will be giving 20 lucky winners 2,000,000 GP each! Simply visit the link below and put in your RSN to be entered. You will have until February 6th to put your name in the bag, at which time you will no longer be able to enter, and winners will be chosen.
Thank you all so much for everything, I owe it all to you!
Please do not enter for anyone but yourself. You are allowed to put names in for every account that you personally have access too. You will have ONE week to claim your prize. I will make every attempt to contact you that I can. If a name is not able to be found when entered in the friends list, a new winner will be selected. If you do not claim your prize, a new winner will be selected.
When I released badges way back in the beginning of Maxcape, I never intended for those ugly gold circles to be permanent. Unfortunately, due to my lack of ability when it comes to art and graphical design, I've never been able to come up with something that I liked enough to put up.
Today, I'm glad to announce that there are FINALLY proper badge icons! Along with that, some of the badges have been fixed, removed, and/or renamed, to create a better system.
I owe huge thanks to two people. First of all to Fogolicious, for volunteering to create the first bunch of badges. Unfortunately, due to lack of free time he wasn't able to complete the set. AngelMayCare then stepped in and completed the set. Without her, we would have less than half of the badges completed!
I also owe a huge thank you to Tamal for the original concept, and Arengeir for coming up with most of the badges!
Below is the list of changes I have made to badges
- Professional Skiller (2x 200m skills) - REMOVED
- Combatant (higher average combat levels than skill levels) - Changed to 'Killer'
- Master of Combat (max combat level) - Outdated, changed to 99 Attack, Strength, Magic, and Ranged. Renamed to 'Combatant'
- True Master of Combat (all combat skills @ 99) - Outdated, Changed to 138 combat. Renamed to 'Master of Combat'
- Portmaster (all port skills @ 90) - Outdated, added Hunter, Cooking, and Construction.
- Doubly Skilled (26m in a skill) - Changed to 25m. Renamed to 'Experienced'.
- Experienced (50m in a skill) - Renamed to 'Skilled'.
- Semi-pro (100m in a skill) - Renamed to 'Expert'.
All badges are now visible on all profiles. If you do not have a badge earned, it will appear as a grayscale version of the lowest tier of the badge.
Over the last two years, Maxcape has grown from literally nothing, into the much used tool that it is today. Over the last few months, I've been wondering why we have all these people coming to the site every single day, but no way for us to interact with each other. The comments on front page news posts is a start, but it is extremely limited.
