[EDK3] rank_mod 1.01 - custom pilot ranks, medals and stats

Post by bora » Sat Feb 05, 2011 15:54

Ok guys, I am opening a new thread as the old one started to get confusing.
You can find the previous problems and ideas in the previous thread.

current version: 1.01

Requirements:
PHP 5
EDK 3.2 or later

What it does:
display custom graphics as rank, medals and ribbons based off user defined kill based awards.

Example:
This is how it should look like: Sample Killboard (testing environment, might have some errors!)
example_pilot_medalbox_stats.png
example_pilot_medalbox_stats.png (61.8 KiB) Viewed 17253 times
Unbenannt-1.png
Unbenannt-1.png (114.17 KiB) Viewed 17401 times
example_medaldetail.png
example_medaldetail.png (167.24 KiB) Viewed 17253 times
Affected scripts:
pilot_detail.php

Any modules having custom scripts for these pages might be overridden (working on improving this).
See the discussion for fixes (only if you are good with php)

How to Install:
1. Download it
2. please read README.txt for version related informations/warnings
3. unzip into mods directory (usually /mods)
4. login as admin, open modules admin and click settings for the rank_mod module
5. select the options you wish and assign ships to the categories as you wish
6. run all 6 config pages, and click save on each
7. enable the mod in module admin
8. check pilot detail or awards page to see awards (make sure the pilot qualifies for some)

Download:
Download link: version 1.01

Donations:
If you like this mod, feel free to send some ISK to Chro'Tal for continuous updates/fixes. ;-)

Changelog:

Code: Select all

recent changes:

- added new faction warfare ranks and insignias for Minmatar and Gallente
- added warnings in admin interface so people are remembered to SAVE settings before using the module

- temporarily removed some ranktitle sets, they will be reactivated in later releases - their images are still available!

- changed the array layout for settings_defines ranksets, if you had customer image/titlesets make sure you convert them
- changed ribbons and medals in medal box so they show up as if they were hanging on your uniform. ribbons ABOVE medals

- fixed calculation error on frontpage stats in boards which used weekly statistics
- fixed up some error messages people had when they did not configure the module correctly

in progress:

- campaign medals linked to existing campaigns.
- ribbons for kills by regions
- make admin page for managing survival/efficiency descriptors and thresholds instead of using a settings file

TO DO with priority from * least important to **** very important:

[****] - change programming so awards are not generated real time but also save to DB and only periodically update
[*** ] - improve performance issues with corp ranks page, PAGING might be a good idea - improving perf. is not really possible the way it is coded right now
[**  ] - change programming of pilot_detail so it goes along with other mods (tough one!)
[**  ] - detailed pilot view of awards and progression towards each ribbon etc
[*   ] - integrate custom medals / uploading images via settings (tricky one...) at least make it possible to rename them

user wishlist:

[**  ] - change ribbons to png with 3 different size/qualities
[**  ] - merge rank insignia into cached pilot portraits (http://eve-id.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=37279#p37279)
[*   ] - look into making the mod compatible with multiple site instances run on a server!

After installing the mod, the last update says this Last Update: NEVER - Please run "check tables"

There is no option for Check tables, should it say 'Check awards'

Also, I notice the ribbons/medal images do not load. http://spacecads.com/killboard/?a=pilot ... t_id=39012

just checked and it looks like its not resolving say www.spacecads.com/killboard/ I've altered a line for one of the .tpl files and put /killboard/ before /mods/rank_mod/ and it is now displaying the medals.

Thanks

That is specific to the 3.2 beta, and would actually work in a live version as well since there you would turn off NOTICE level warnings. Making the change suggested also works on both old and new boards, though.

i thin that the image path should not be hard scripted as /mods/rank_mod or /killboard/mods/rank_mod, as alot of boards dont use the the killboard dir, may be it should get the dir and use it as a function or what ever u call it..

I will look into it on monday. Is there a config variable which already holds the path to the killboard? if so i will use that to prefix the module directory and all should be fine.

For the images I think you could just use "mod/..." without the first slash. To give a full url you can get the board's address from config::get('cfg_kbhost') - or use $_SERVER constants.

right now it is src="mods/rank_mod/images/awards/{$medal.medal_filename}.png" so I don't understand why it is not working for people who use it in subdirectories...

the only thing i need to modify is the rank picture.
