Project Update June 2020

There are several updates in the works for Iron Arachne. The most important one is that I'm writing a new application I'm calling Data Core that will allow me to modify the data used for generation in real time. At the moment, all data used by the world API is stored in JSON files and baked into each release. Data Core will provide a data API that the world API server will reference instead. It will also let me add things like new plants or animals much faster.

After Data Core is launched, I plan on working on new options for the heraldry generator. You will be able to search for charges by tag, and possibly also specify the division of the field and the tinctures used. It should be possible to have more control over what's generated, while still allowing for completely random coats of arms.
