Salty Tears - Dead by Daylight builder

AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

Hi Folks,

I've been working on a Dead by Daylight coding project for a while now, as a way for me to learn a new language. I've decided to call it Salty Tears because it fits this game so well.

Salty Tears is a website that allows people to save builds to share with others, but other people who visit the site can see the builds too (and add their own, of course). It's a place for people to go for inspiration and provide inspiration to others.

I'd appreciate any feedback on it - it's still in the early phases, more features will be considered upon request.

    I like, it. It looks like a fun and easy way to organize your loadouts so you don't forget them.

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    Thanks. That's what I was going for.

    Very Cool! I've already submitted a build, will return there often.


    Would very much like to have a longform explanation of builds, like if you view the build in full that it has a more detailed explanation below so people can better explain how to use it to it's fullest.

    Survivor builds should also just be one character. Separating them all out is pointless due to them being all similar. What I'd recommend instead is having a generic "survivor" tab that has all the survivor builds, but each build has a "recommended survivor" part to it so that builds that rely on certain aspects or outfits of a character remain intact.

    I'd also think it'd be nice if there was a "comment" or "rate" system for each build, so people could see what others think of the build.


    Otherwise it's very cool and I hope to see it widespread eventually = )

    I really like the concept! But i don't know why Survivors are separated. Maybe an idea like mentioned above could be implemented, so only choose "recommended survivor". Although, having all build inspirations in one place will be very easy to search for builds


    Good luck with the website, I hope it'll be more popular

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    Survivors, yeah, that's a good idea. I will try and work on that.

    Comment system and rating system are on my list.


    Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it.

    For @MistressChara and @BloodyTapp ,

    The front page of my site is pretty bare. Do you have any ideas on what you'd expect to see when you load up the site for the first time?

  • TheGameZpro3TheGameZpro3 Member Posts: 465

    I love this site, and I only now discovered it.


    But I want to suggest 2 things please.

    1. Can you add blood point offerings
    2. Can you allow people to comment on builds

    If you do none of those, I'm ok with that, I still love this site you made.

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    Ha, I never noticed I didn't have BP offerings. I will add them ASAP. Yes, comments are on my list to create too. I'm glad you like the site. Hope you will spread the word.

  • TheGameZpro3TheGameZpro3 Member Posts: 465

    Thank.

  • BloodyTappBloodyTapp Member Posts: 65

    @Axiant maybe something like "Recently added", "Most viewed" and "Most liked" (if you make the build rating system)? It'd add something fresh to the front page every time someone publishes a build, and slightly help in choosing builds maybe

    I am so signing in, it looks so good! Wonderful job! Amazing! Outstanding!!!

    @Axiant I actually like the simplistic design for it. The only thing I could think of that would improve it is making a KILLER / SURVIVOR in the same style as the DBD website for the main screen alongside any news or shrine stuff. After clicking on Killer / Survivor it would take you to the list of killers or the survivor builder.


    But I say keep it simple, tools are at their best when anyone can use them to accomplish a lot.

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    Thanks for the comments! I have added the missing bloodpoint offerings. I am working on getting comments and voting included soon.

  • BloodyTappBloodyTapp Member Posts: 65

    @Axiant I got one more idea recently (hope you don't object me pinging): tags for builds! Here are some suggestions for tags:

    • For Survivor builds: Repairs, Altruism, Bullying, Teamwork, Solo survivor, SWF, Exhaustion
    • For Killer builds: Gen protection, Punishing, Anti-SWF, Hex, Map control
    • For all builds: Meta, Gimmick, Meme, Situational, Universal

    The idea is that people could search builds that'd been marked with a certain tag(s). For example, if you want a universal altruistic build, you can just search by "Universal" and "Altruism" tags. I think there should also be a limited amount of tags to be able to use. Tell what you think about it and if it'd be easy to make or not

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    @BloodyTapp Yes! I've had that idea for a long time, but wasn't sure of all the possible tags to use. This helps a lot! I will see if I can get it added.

    The design is very pleasant to look at. Good work.

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    Thanks @tafner! I'm actually working on a redesign to roll out soon. It's very similar, just a lot more mobile friendly.

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    Got some more builds rolling in on the site.

    Curious as to what you guys think about when perks get reworked and they are part of a build on the site.

    Should the build be removed or just add an alert that a perk/addon has been changed and may not be ideal any longer? Maybe add a suggestion to "remake" the build?

    Thanks for any input.

  • BloodyTappBloodyTapp Member Posts: 65

    @Axiant I think an alert would be enough. Also, have you considered the possibility (for author) to edit already published builds?

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    @BloodyTapp I have. It's on my list.

    Thanks for the input

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    @not_Queen @Peanits do you guys feature these kinds of things on dev streams?

  • AxiantAxiant Member Posts: 21

    @Peanits Thank you! I'm glad you like it. I've spent a really long time making it and I've tried really hard to make it as close to the "in-game experience" as possible in terms of how everything looks.

    I agree with you on the perks being shown, it was pretty messy on mobile so I took it out, but I just did a redesign of it for mobile so I might be able to make it look nice.

    I'm currently working on voting and comments so hopefully after that's done I can look into that again.

    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it!
