YG.com, a leading provider of online gaming and community tools, has launched major updates for their Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) database, the first complete FFXIV database that was ever released online.
Since its release on September 2, 2010, YG.com's ad-free FFXIV database has been the most complete online FFXIV resource available, with detailed information about items, skills, guildleves, recipes, NPCs, and quests; NPC locations; zone maps (and a useful map tool); and much more included in its initial release. Its syndication tools, which include FFXIV tooltips and a search box that can used in other FFXIV fansites, have also become highly popular within the FFXIV community.
The latest update to the YG FFXIV database was done in light of the retail release of Final Fantasy XIV. The database now contains the most accurate and up-to-date information from the retail version of the game, including everything from Item stats to information on over 1500 recipes available in-game. The update also includes:
- More detailed information on skills, such as Range and HP Cost;
- Customizable search boxes and tooltip links (allows users to tweak how they appear on their websites);
- A new developer API to help tech-savvy fans code their own widgets and tools that utilize YG tooltips and database information.
"With the retail release for FFXIV out, we have to make sure that our database is updated and that it maintains its status as the premiere FFXIV resource," said Brian Higby, YG.com's Chief Technology Officer. "We're also aware that many of our users have come to love our syndication tools, which is why we also created customization options for them as we worked on keeping the database information up-to-date."
