I kept putting this off because I was waiting for Kirigen to be finished but I guess it’s time to accept that Kirigen will never be finished. I’ll always have stuff to add to it. Right now the other character sorters (Precure and Psycho-Pass) are my primary focus but I’ve also got those completely screencapped series that are just waiting. I’m just super lazy.

Anyways, since Kirigen was getting Loli Salad hits, I realized it was time to make a note of it on here. I’m going to adjust Kirigen to reflect this as well but I’d be happy if this post could be used to report any problems with Kirigen. Such as with the gens (which are still a work in progress and I know don’t work right) or the sorters.

You can also just mention me on twitter with the problems as some people were. I don’t care as long as I know what I have to fix. The Kancolle Character Sorter should be fixed now but if any characters are missing, I can usually add them as soon as I’m notified.

Kirigen is a hub of stupid stuff I’ve made. Originally just name/concept generators to help me when I’m writing and get stuck for names, it also includes graphic stuff and character sorters. In the future I’d like to have the Ren’py graphic assets I’ve created (menus, etc) along with scripts I’ve cooked up for that. It’s a pet project more than anything but I’d be happy if someone finds use in those things too.

    KanColle sorter is missing Maya and Ikazuchi is misspelled. I haven’t noticed anything else. Looking forward to seeing all the new ship added, Italians and Abyssals alike :D

    in the kancolle sorter, nagatsuki and umikaze’s names have been switched around. nagatsuki is displayed as umikaze and vice versa.

    Thanks, I’ll fix this asap.

    Shouhou was added. Looks like she was all ready to go but I forgot to add her name, haha.

    Really like the KanColle sorter. Two bugs: Nagatsuki seems to show up twice. Also, Teruzuki doesn’t appear.

    One feature I’d like would be to have the dual-name characters (like Hibiki and Taigei) come up against each other in the first round. That way you can tie them to have them count as the same character (functionally, anyway). I’d prefer that over a plain switch, since I sort the two I mentioned as the same character, but Yuu and Ro as different.

    Fixed Nagatsuki and Teruzuki was another character added but missed in the script, haha.

    Yeah, I’ve been unsure how to incorporate dual-named characters but I’ll rethink it thanks to your request.

    My current plan which I can hopefully implement this week will be to split all dual named characters up BUT also add the option to turn that off and then only the first forms will show up. That seems like a fair compromise for people who don’t care about sorting, say, both Hibiki and Verniy and those who do.

    Awesome. Gonna give this another go next time I’m bored and or have time. I like to do it a bit after events, to see what that affects.

    In the KanColle sorter, Ryuuhou still comes up when “Second Forms” isn’t selected.

    Oh I forgot to add: Ryuuhou shows up twice with “Second Forms” selected.

    The Summer abyssals are included in the regular kanmusume list, by the way.

    I’d love if kancolle sort used the Kai Ni forms and updated Kai art where available, rather than the non-remodeled forms. Shallow as it may be, I do sometimes decide a match based on their looks.

    Also, there are new ships as of Fall 2016 that are missing. Saratoga, Asakaze, Yamakaze, and Commandant Teste were all added.
