Is this possible?

Post by merakidare » Wed Oct 03, 2018 4:26 pm

On a roleplaying site I work for, we are looking into expanding but we weren't sure how far we can expand with code. We are looking to add in a site currency where people can trade money, pixels, earn points, and steal points. We also want code that will allow us to insert growable garden like art below signatures that can attract certain animals with the purchase of items the animals like. (Art is not the issue, I'm specifically wondering the expanse of phpbb coding and what it has to offer.)

I know this isnt really bbcode but I wasn't sure where else to put this. If there is a better place please let me know.

You are going to need an extension for this, so moving to Extension Requests

Thank you! I will check that out and keep it in mind.
Anyone able to help me gauge how the interactive art garden would work with it and on its own though?

You'd need to have a store, which he doesn't have yet, and you'd need to make a second helper extension most likely that would allow people to use select items from the store in their sig. I don't really know what you mean by interactive. You buy a hay bale, and a horse appears in your sig?

Seems that way, but when it arrives, how long will it stay? Does it have to do something prior eating or after it?) Not much info to imagine the workflow. Idea sounds nice, but not much thought put into it.

My plan is to develop an extension called "Community Currencies". Not just one, but multiple will be possible, in line with the "Open Money" concept of Michael Linton. This is to support and register all kinds of interactions/exchanges (virtual or real-life) inside communities.

Do not install. There is nothing yet.

It would be entirely interactive. The things you put in your signature to attract animals are permanent and the animals you collect would be tradeable. The way I figured it is they stay around as collection pieces but you can only have so many of them in your collection before you have to release, trade, or sell them. So yes, think of like buying a haybale and there being a chance for a variant of a horse to spawn. They will simply be collectable/tradeables that do nothing but look very nice and offer something of a market for the currency implemented!
