Ever thought of one? Or should I just add Vintage and give everything to him.
Not something we really considered, I suspect maintaining one might be more trouble than it is worth, but I'll look into it
Could always just make a dummy steam account specifically for such a purpose, doesn't have to be a bot. Makes it easier to keep "giveaway" extras separate from personal items.
Aye, but that would require manual maintenance and somebody to be online when said person wants to contribute items... Bot would be most convenient. It all depends on whether I can find something ready-made and fix it to our needs. I simply don't have the time to write one from scratch.
can i send vintage all my dota 2 keys every week? :3
Be prepared to get them all back in a matter of minutes and then some
probably something like this but would still need to be modified to work for your needs https://github.com/Jessecar96/SteamBot
I could try doing something myself. Haven't used C# in a while.
No point reinventing the wheel, looks like flik's link might suit us.
If it was to intergrate with the donator supporter systenm, ie. 1 key = $1, that would take some code.
Insanity and I do giveaways if that's what this is about... we can take them to giveaway....?
aye, but it probably wouldn't be in C#.
I don't even know if we'll do that though, I've been asked about using keys for donator perks, and while it's awesome to have them and be able to do something like raffle them back to the community, the problem is that if a _lot_ of people pay in keys, well, keys don't pay the bills :/
Especially given that an avid idler/farmer can get a number of keys per week, they could be getting supporter perks for next to nothing... and the cynical side of me says people will probably abuse it.
Keys would go fast for $1 on outpost, but it could still be abused. The bot could probably be run on the same computer you play on, if you keep it on 24/7 like I do
