Site Problems, 1.14.1 Update and Infamy
Hi, all. My apologies for not being very responsive over the last few months. I’ve been snowed under at work and not had any free time to spend on updating or improving the calculator. Further apologies to anyone who has mailed me and not received a response. I’ll be working through my inbox over the next few days.
You will probably have noticed that the calculator recently suffered some severe problems where load times were as high as thirty seconds or more. This issue has now been fixed and I’ll be keeping an eye on things to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
The skill descriptions have been updated to version 1.14.1 and I’ll try and keep on top of future updates.
Finally – Infamy. Several months ago I rebuilt the calculator, significantly improving many features and adding the Infamy tree. It was 90% done when I discovered some major problems with the way profiles were being loaded which I couldn’t get to the bottom of. Work was ramping up so I parked it for a while and that’s the state it’s been in since then. I will return to it when I get some spare time but there isn’t a lot of that about at the moment. I know Infamy is the thing that everyone really wants and needs and I will attempt to finish the work but I can’t give any indication when this might be. The problem is compounded by the code being written so long ago now that I’m not even sure how it works or what the problem was.
In the meantime, I’d highly recommend The Fastest Online Skill Tree for Payday 2 which has a working Infamy tree. Alternatively, you can use the Skill Tree Builder on this site to create a custom tree with the correct cash and tier unlock costs. Note that you can’t do this for individual trees unfortunately, but you can create a V-100 profile.
How to View the Latest Skills
Every week I get mails asking why the new skills such as Spotter and Camera Loop haven’t been added to the calculator.
They have, but you might not notice if you are viewing an old profile. Profiles are linked to the skill tree details that were current when the profile was created. That way, when the skill tree is updated your old profiles remain intact.
You can always view the latest skill details by either visiting the root URL – http://www.pd2skills.info/ – or by clicking on the “Respec all skill trees (version x.x.x)” link at the bottom of the calculator.
