Any updated Character Planners out there?

I just wish they would fix the way it looks as far as stats go by duplicating what blizzard did with their drop down menus.

What use does it have for experimenting with gear, if it sometimes computes erratic stats? None.

Are there any similar tools? It would be neat to have a tool that somehow tied into the armory.
I'd like to start off by saying thank you to everyone that has helped us keep the site/servers up, bug tested, beta'd various features, or simply contributed to the community. We've spent the past 6 months fighting bug after bug after bug only to have even more bugs arise, without ever catching up.
It has finally got to the point where it's simply too much work to 'fix' things. With several offers of help, only a few minor things were ever completed, and leaving Cide as the only coder was just not enough to get out from the overwhelming load. We're not happy to see things not working, but it just isn't feasible to attempt to fix them.
We still feel there is a very viable use for a custom profiling site, even with the armory out. The armory can't help you compare your crafted set to tier4 or 5, nor your arena gear vs. misc. pieces. We've started a very early stage of development for a CTProfiles2.0 project, which is essentially a complete recode, however we won't be releasing it any time soon. Our focus is going to be shifted back to CTMod, and we'll be working on a new unannounced mod that's been in the works for a few weeks, CT_RaidAssist2.0, some fixes and updates to older mods, and we'll continue to go from there. As for development of the CTP2 site, I won't even set an estimate of when we'd be starting work on it again.
The CTProfiles database server will be going offline in a few days, and all other servers will follow suit. CTMod and CTScreens will both remain up unaffected. The forums will also likely be coming down, as they're setup through CTProfiles, and I don't know if it would be viable to salvage them.
If you are a very experienced coder with large amounts of time you would like to put towards the CTP2 site, or one of the other CT projects, feel free to drop us a line. The issue with projects like this is that we don't make money from them, yet they require a very large amount of time to develop and maintain. Spending 6-10 hours a day coding is not unusual, but when things get done, we're usually quite pleased with the results. Sadly these aren't part time projects, it's a full-time hobby.
The good news is that we'll be able to spend time working on mods again, as CTProfiles was pretty much prohibiting any spare time, so keep checking the CTMod site for more info and updates.
Again we'd just like to say thanks to the millions of users worldwide. Over 5 million profiles were created, from over 150 countries, resulting in an average of over a million unique visitors every month, and well over a hundred thousand hits every single day. So thank you for making us the most used profiling site for any game anywhere. We're sorry we couldn't keep up, but hopefully we'll be able to do better next time.

I've never seen ct profiles actually be correct, however the in game character screen probably isn't correct either.
Not since 2.0.3 at least.

Hoeever if anyone is interested in trying to create some better solution please say so.

I think what people are looking for is another CTProfiles or WoW Equip, that lets you play with gear/gems/enchants to see how your stats come out. An interesting problem...

It's open source, everybody can view the lua files. Do you consider all your other addons to be safe?

I know, but to simplify matters we call it open source.
viewable source does not equal open source
Actually I don't know if any addon was released under any license.
