    Default Site and App Builders. You can be one too. - Updated!

    We've been seeing some pretty great things happening around the extended community of RIFT.

    It's made us decide to do something that I don't think anyone's done before.

    A while ago we started sharing soul, ability and achievement information and icons with some people who asked about creating helpful web extensions to Rift. That led to people building the first rounds of soul calculators in different languages across the world. And the experience got better.

    More recently we added our server status page. As a test, we intentionally included a live xml version just to see if anyone would build anything off of it. Sure enough, it was quickly used by a number of web sites and some new apps. And the experience got better.

    Here's what we think: Across the web, across iOS and Android devices, the more we share with you, the more cool things you think to make. The more cool things you make, the better the experience gets for everyone.

    Tonight we'd like to expand that even further.

    We're also now sharing information on the following things that people have discovered in the game: NPCs, Items, Quests, Recipes, and Artifact Collections.

    To those who might be concerned with spoilers -- Don't worry. This isn't a complete game database.

    This is a special sitebuilder view of things people have already seen in game. What you'll see in there are things that have already been broadcast in /says, public channels, links, and tooltips. Their discovery has already been shared with the public at large in-game. Weíre just choosing to share it outside of the game now as well.

    As for the unprecedented part?

    You don't have to be anyone special to see and work with it.

    Here is where it all lives: ftp://ftp.trionworlds.com/rift/

    Edit: Here is a new and better link! http://webcdn.triongames.com/addons/assets/


    You're welcome to use it under the same agreement as our standard terms of use. (See section 14 here: http://www.riftgame.com/en/legal/terms-of-use.php for specifics.)

    Weíll be updating this frequently as more discoveries are made and people go on to do even bigger and better things in RIFT.

    More than anything else, though, weíre really looking forward to seeing what you create with it.

    very cool stuff
    Stands In Fire podcast and blog Was trying to chronicle what it was like to level as a pure f2p account in RIFT until Error 3145 stopped me.

    That's it for this dog and pony show, the escorts are tired and the animals need to be walked.

    Agreed! After reading the introduction I was almost expecting Trion to excitedly announce its new add-on API at the end of the post! The whole introduction would so apply to this item ;)

    I think this is great, I think its also great how Trion isn't just making a game and throwing it out there. I love the turn around time on fixing bugs and the communication with the community. Most of us understand that Trion is busy, but its great what you guys are doing. I just hope that you will keep this level of service up, I am sure its very tiring and energy draining. But right now that level of customer service is what has everyone WOWd right now. I have bought a 6month sub, and would love to buy it again after the 6month is up. Many of us have "settled" for MMOs, however for me this is an MMO I WANT to play and haven't "settled for.

    Again. Thank You.

    Actually that already exists. The map can be found on Telarapedia (as an jpg). Myself and others are already building interactive resources based upon that map. Read the fansite forums.
    I have not published the possibility to make map pointers by using Rift Zone. Instead I am considering to give the PHP code and necessary sources away to other site builders. Although most of them are smart enough to build their own interactive resources.

    Trion should warn people suffering from claustrophobia.
