The mod is for a MMORPG.

Its a Character MOD for Final Fantasy XI.

basically it`ll let u put your characters info into your profile and add it into all your posts. So everyone can see what your job levels are in the game, your main character in the game, and 2 crafting skills and levels in the game.

ill post some screenshots in a few mins.

also, if you have more than 1 character to a forum member then it will only show the stats of the character they set as the main.


**UPDATED .rar FILE**
fixed a few files and cleaned up the layout of the table on the profile_view_body.tpl

I am curious if you plan to implement any kind of auth system...I've been thinking of using this on my site but we are a large endgame shell and I only want my LS members to be able to create characters for the roster.

as of right now only forum members can use this mod, guests can only see info not create it. I`ll look into making it so only a usergroup can use it.(im guessing thats what you mean)

I`m also thinking of adding a server field as an add-on for this mod, i notice a lot of forums have multi server members.

The only problem I have with using User Groups is we sometimes have special circumstances pop up. For example, a member who is in good standing but inactive would remain in the members usergroup, but I would want them off the roster.

My solution was to add an admin option in the profile allowing me to specify if the user was a LS member (I may change wording to Include In Roster). It is kind of cumbersome since I added that option after 80+ members registered to the site, but it gives me the control I needed for several pages.

Right now I'm in the process of modding your mod (not for release, just to suit my own purposes). In case you're wondering, here are the things I am attempting to change or modify:
1.) First and foremost, the job/subjob format is obsolete in a LS where most members have several maxed jobs. My main concern is displaying each characters' jobs over 70, whether they have 2 or 10.
2.) A large consideration for us is Dynamis clearance and sea access, so i'll be adding those fields to the database and character registry.
3.) I'll either remove the rank field entirely, or create 3 rank entries (one for each city) and remove them from the profile (only show in signature).
4.) Template modifications for the viewtopic areas.
5.) Template modification for character_body.tpl.

If you have any further plans to expand this mod I'd love to kick around ideas with you.

sure^^ but u will want to use this release if you are going to mod it.

FFXI Characters v1.0.1a

this is the latest version (fixed some flaws with the coding and security issues thanks to phpbb Mod-Validation) and the version i just submitted. I also have it so that the first letter in any name will now be uppercase automatically when they submit it. so if they put: test as a username and submit it the mod will automatically make it Test. ( just something i like)

not sure which version you had, but i added a delete users characters in the profile managment.

i want to create a admin section in the ACP (working on this right now actually,this`ll take me a little bit longer tho.) that will let you delete a single users caracter or all of them, as well as editing the character.

any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appriciated. I want to make this have everything i can think of for it.

i was thinking about adding Missions, Fame, etc. but i decided not to. Just didnt think anyone would care.

I`m also thinking about having the Nation flag instead of just text.

Looking forward to any input.

after all this is my first mod
:D

i went ahead and made a forum for this

I've been keeping up with your latest releases for security issues and things, no worries there.

As for the nation flag, I want to use the icons (flags and faces) created by Kero for the japanese guildmember.cgi by senobeya. Here's an example if you've never seen it.

I love the uppercase character name idea, drives me insane too.


As for the fame/missions thing, I've seen some really detailed rosters that were so cluttered with information that nobody bothered to look at them. Just my opinion, if you wanted to add that kind of stuff, I'd only make it viewable in the profiles or something.

I registered with your site today and I'll keep up with your test site, if I come up with any super spiffy features I'll let ya know. :D
