Default GUID Database
A place for creators to post the blocks of GUIDs they used, are using or intend to use.  This is listed in hexadecimal, contains 256 characters, and each GUID is 8 digits.  ie:  0x001E8300. For details about downloading SimPE, see The SimPE Preservation thread.

If you are a casual creator and do not expect the need for 256 GUIDs, then you could just use Random Byte Generator, or hashing via SimPe's Hash Generator.  The odds of a conflict are slim.

Any existing blocks, from any time, can be listed. Full, empty, in progress.

My intent is to update the table in this post and delete any posts claiming blocks to keep the thread tidy. If you see responses to this post, then please read them and ensure the block you are claiming comes after.  I've started this with blocks I claimed right before the database went down the last time. 

I've found the table feature in the forum to be a bit unwieldy, so I've moved the database to a Google Spreadsheet.

Is there a way to see what GUIDs belong to me? I didn't register any new blocks, just that one I got at start.

If you know what your first used GUID is (or thereabouts), you should be able to calculate 256 GUIDs.

For those who need a crash course in Hex for GUID blocks:

0x12345678

0x is the prefix, and these don't change. The bolded numbers (shown as 1 through 6 here) are the GUID block and should be the same for all 256 GUIDs in a block. The last two (7 and 8 here, just to show their position) are the changeable numbers. They'll be 00 through FF.

Examples:
0x12345600 (first)
0x1234564A (random in the middle)
0x123456B1 (random in the middle)
0x123456FF (last)

GUIDs are in Hex, which means there are 16 numbers, so you can think of it as all the decimal numbers from 0 to 9 first, then A to F, then the decimal numbers, then A to F, etc.

01 to 09, then 0A to 0F
10 to 19, then 1A to 1F
...[skipped 20 to 8F, they follow the same pattern]
90 to 99, then 9A to 9F
A0 to A9, then AA to AF
...[Skipped B0 to EF, they follow the same pattern]
F0 to F9, then FA to FF
And you're done with the GUID block.

The numbers do continue from 100-FFF all the way up to 10000000-FFFFFFFF but those aren't need-to-know for the GUID block. They do follow the same pattern, though. Ca be useful to know for other things.

EDIT: Added a handy notepad document with a full 00-FF GUID block that you can use to make a list of used GUIDs (with instructions on how to use).

very good idea, I was wondering if maybe you could make that a google spreadsheet that anyone can view and trusted users can edit? I think you can even make it so that only certain sheets can be edited by others which means you could make one sheet that everyone can edit to add new GUIDS they are using while having the main list protected...

Hiya! I'm in need of a new GUID block. My previous one was: 0x00939400 - 0x009394FF
I was thinking about using this block: 0x00940000 - 0x009400FF.

I've been continuing on from the last GUID block I got assigned before the database died. I've 'manually' used 0x008DCB2E to 0x008DCB6A so far.

I'm http://crispsandkerosene.tumblr.com/ on tumblr, admittedly not very active on MTS.

Hi and thanks for starting this database!

Can I claim 0x00A68100-000A681FF? I've already used 0x00A681E8.
Doing all the things, and *mostly* not failing.

I have blocks 0x00397B00-0x00397BFF and 0x0071B900-0x0071B9FF. Coulda sworn I picked up a third block before the server went down, but I can't find any evidence of that.

Edit: Apparently I did, and then some! I also have blocks 0x008FC400-0x008FC4FF, 0x008FC500-0x008FC5FF, 0x008FC600-0x008FC6FF, and also snagged 0x008FC700-0x008FC7FF for my little sister GreyMoon.

Well, I'm not a creator I mainly fix stuff for myself and dabble here and there but I made a GUID block with the info from Simmer22 and guess I'll just let you know that one. Maybe one day I will actually create stuff worth sharing This is the block: 0x9D47B400 - 0x9D47B4FF

Hello, can I claim 10 GUIDs? I choose 0x9D47B500 - 00x9D47B509 for now, I can change them if they are already in use.
