Progress update :O!?
I did a big update of the thread, it's now a 3DCore thread.
I'm glad to read that you've drawn a lot of influence from D&D because I have always loved playing, and also taken that interest and translated it into Minecraft. I really look forward to the release of Advancement, and I hope that I can do anything along the lines of beta testing or helping out in that sense. I have my own server and I hope that I can use your plugin soon to further my customization interests.
That would be a pretty neat idea, though I don't think I would be able to alter the name you see above the player (without a large amount of code). Of course, your chat name could easily be made to say something else, and if you still would like that to be implemented, that could definitely be done.
Yeah, I understand that changing the name over the player would actually require client-side addons.
But if you could make it so that the players chat name is changed that would be perfect. I just wanted a way for my players to be able to further customize their characters around their roleplay. If their chat displays there chosen roleplay name that'd be excellent
Also, concerning their "real" name being displayed over them, I think this is perfectly okay, and would actually be good that it is unchanged so that players could know what to type for commands or postings so that they can still know the players "real names"
How is coming along it's been a few days :o
I've been taking a break from Advancement but I've started up some other projects to keep me busy. I've begun a simple minecart overhaul plugin called MyCart and a general API used in all of my mods called Channels that greatly expands on chat and messaging. Both of these are coming along quite nicely and I'm thinking about finishing them both up before I head back to the beast that is Advancement.
I like the idea of Advancement, I am great at making up quests, I am an old school D&D'er 2nd ed onwards. Love RPG and my server is majorily RPG based, cant wait for this to come out as a replacement for the mcmmo im using currently, Im getting into java aswell (albeit slowly as I run 2 businesses and a family) so it would be good to colaberate ideas, I could help with Quests/suggestions
Well lucky for you, I'm a big DnDer, too! And it had a big influence on how I am designing Advancement. Haha, anyway, please do throw ideas my way, we can discuss, I'll let hear my ideas as well. Speaking of quests, I was actually already considering making a quest mod of some sort, so we can do some good collaboration there. Good luck on the quest of learning java, got any quick questions I can totally help! :P
About your advancement API. This should be your goal. These are all suggestions you add/use in your final ultimate goal/objective. Level restrictions. Quests. Classes. Magic. Unique skills.
I will make the quest mod a separate mod, and maybe eventually integrate them.
And there will definitely by MySQL support when I get everything else down. First priority after I get everything else down well.
Alright Cool :DD!
I also cannot wait for your new advancement mod to come out :D mcmmo is way to f***ing buggy lol..
Wait wait, Okay I got the idea. Quests. I've got plenty more. Kind of like uQuest. It's outdated and no longer works. This would fit a mmorpg server really nice. Just customize quests with customize rewards. Pretty simple. Lol The essentials like plugin. Well that's hard. Because thinking of new stuff is hard as essentials covers a lot and I like to be original :P
Well, what if you have to punch a block x amount of times? Kill x amount of animals? Place x amount of items? Drop x amount of items? Die x amount of times? Lol
Hahaha, exactly! You just do x thing x times! But it would still provide some entertainment, methinks. I'll see what I can do!
oh btw I'll be happy to test your next plugin :D
Sounds great, it may be a while, I'm going through a lot of planning right now so I can get exactly what I want out of it. I will keep you informed though!
Woohoo alright thanks :)
Hey could you tell me what exactly your doing with your next plugin? Maybe I can give you some ideas.
