Re: Ranks or awards for users

this sounds like a good idea but if not familiar with it it can be a real pain once your site starts to get bigger this gets to be a hassle so shoot high for your requirements my opinion doesnt mean much but been in this boat before.

Re: Ranks or awards for users

Maybe it was 16 months ago but I remember about some goof ideas.

We had rank system based on user posts (You could be able to get higher rank based on number of posts), but now let me introduce something new - awards and medals. Even if they aren't available in all our languages yet, now you are able to collect avtivity points. There are some activities on site, which let you earn points.

Currently we have that:
- create  a topic
- answer to an existing topic
- create a poll on forum
- make a comment to the article
- vote comment bad/good
- some points will be taken back, if someone will vote your comment as bad (he can do it only once).
- some points will be taken back, if administrator decide to delete your comment
- reading article
- submitting article
- someone read your article
- login daily
- send invite to the site (form included)
- someone invited will become as registered user
- some points can be added to the user by administrators

More rules for points soon

Points will be converted to the medals and awards automatically.

Currently you have list of activities, list of most active users, invite form and some more. It's not finished yet, but already collecting first points. Administrator (me) is excluded (because i can easy collect many points from read articles). Have fun.

Re: Ranks or awards for users

Yep... but if I remember good, automatic messages shouldn't notify You on email. I'm trying to keep notifications from our site balanced. No spam, only some important info. Additionally You can disable notifications from forums and about PM in your settings. That task is unfinished, but i should finish it this week. Additionally you can suggest some changes & propositions (if any).

Points will be converted for site ranks and medals. It's already not done, but it will be done soon.

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
