Creativity in any art is made easier by having a detailed knowledge of materials used. For dimensioneers, this means knowledge of dimension items. Rift Decorators and Rift Dimension have been our go to source for information on dimension items, now there is a new database in town. I’d like to introduce Rift Dimension Addicts, run in collaboration by Bhrawn (Courdelia), Kitasia, and Kylore.
This site is designed to be easy to use. Items can be accessed by two methods. A drop down menu (Dimension Item DB) on the home page allows searching for an item by how they are acquired. For instance, if you know your item is crafted by apothecaries, then going to the Dimension Item DB/Crafted/Apothecary menu will bring up a listing of all items crafted by apothecaries.
Dimension items can also searched for by name (partial names will work, too) using the search function located on the front page. Type amphora into the search function and every amphora in the game, from fishing, crafting or questing, will be found. The search function by keyword is powerful and a welcome addition to the database scene.
Rift Dimension Addicts is the only dimension site to have a database behind the web pages. This allows some very nifty features including item tags. Item tags are categories the item belongs to, like location, classification (i.e. landscaping, furniture, decoration) or vendor. Each tag is a hyperlink that searches for all items tagged similarly, so if the item is a fished up amphora, clicking on the fished up tag brings up a list of all fished items.
The database side of Rift Dimension Addicts is functional and working as intended, other sections are still in construction. This site also has sections for Dimension Toolbox tutorials and saved Toolbox item sets. A section in the website forums is also dedicated to toolbox questions but is not accessible to the public yet. These will be popular sections when up and running.
Does this mean we can lose the bookmarks for other dimension websites? I won’t be losing any. I love the object morphing section of Rift Dimension. If I need inspiration on how I might morph an object, this is the first place I look. Rift Dimension Addicts is great if you already know something about an item but Rift Decorators allows browsing items by use, with categories like building blocks, lighting and landscaping easily accessible. I’ll be visiting these sites on a regular basis still.
