CreateAdopt.Com - Weekly Spoilers & Progress Updates

Post by Kaeliah on Wed Mar 27, 2013 11:26 am


Spoiler of the Week:

March 16th, Week 1:


Week 1's spoiler features the Create A Guide page. Rather than posting guides and tutorials in the forums, guides will be kept separate. There are several reasons for this, the first being organization. It's easy then to browse through guides, and eventually comment and rate them. In addition guides earn the author's points, the more popular and well rated the guide, the more points the author gains weekly. Guides are approved by the staff to ensure a certain quality standard, but how often they're used or how popular they become is up to the author.

Progress Report:

I'm currently updating some of the code and working on the shops you can set up on your site. They're pretty neat but will be difficult to debug. You can have both item shops, and pet shops, and you stock each shop with items and pets. You can have some stock be constant(always there) or you can have restocking possibilities. For each item, you can choose the chance(in percentages) that it will restock. Items that are more rare can restock less this way. When restocking you can also choose how many will restock. If you want to have a standard restock, you can set the minimum and maximum restock amounts the same, but if you make a range then it will randomly restock a random amount inside that range. To prevent a heavy load on the server, restocks are only done once per day, and a restock is ONLY done on a shop when someone has viewed the shop within 24 hours. So a shop that no one visits, will not restock as often.

An item shop can be stocked with items, and a pet shop stocked with adoptables, however you cannot combine the two. Shops are managed in the Admin Panel, under the Features Tab and Shop Manager link. You can edit all your shops, edit or add stock, close or open particular shops and eventually you'll be able to see shop logs to see what items are being purchased by who. Shop logs will only be kept around for a few weeks though, so I will probably supply an option to save your shops logs into a text file if you wish to keep them.

Shops will have names, an image for NPC's or the front of the shop, and a short description viewable. Items or Pets are listed below with their picture, price and # in stock with an option to buy them.

Wow, sounds pretty amazing, Kae! I love setting up shops on Adopts Sites, just adds a new depth to it...I love the stocking feature! As infuriating as it can be when the one item you want is out of stock, it makes things seem more...hm...realistic sounds silly, but I suppose that's what it is!

Might be a typo. Although I've decided to a stage-by-stage release of CreateAdopt. Next month the first stage will be released. As time goes on, further stages will be released. In essance it's a way to start simple and improve. The first stage will simply be creating and adopting adoptables. Later stages will incorporate the site portion of CreateAdopt, and it's many features.

Sounds fun. I'm still waiting eagerly for the site to be released, and I'm sure everyone else it, too ^-^

Just so everyone knows I am CURRENTLY in the process of setting up the version that I will release. Meaning, almost all of the features for the initial release are complete and I am just currently more or less going through and updating some of the code, cleaning it up and then sending it to the release file. Sometime tonight or tomorrow I will probably set up the release, and start doing some initial testing. I'm guessing by the end of the week I will have it ready to release for beta. Very Happy

And just to get you guys kind of drooling a bit for the release, even though the first release will NOT include sites(it will include the forums and adoptable creation to start), the manager I'm putting together for creating adoptables is a drag-and-drop.

You drag and drop stages in the order you want them in, and then you also drag and drop color slots into each stage. For each color slot you upload an image of the adoptable. Between stages you select the transition or evolution settings, and then you can also change overall settings as well. Most of this will be done without having to refresh the page or use overly complex forms. Smile

I'm so excited for the first release! Just in time too, I'm getting a new laptop and FINALLY getting photoshop, just in time to test it out and whip up some adoptable templates! The adoptable creation system sounds much simpler than those I've dealt with before! I can't wait to test it out Very Happy

@Pero

That's the idea, to be simple. I started really falling in love with some JQuery libraries, so that's what will be powering the adoptable creation system. I hope to use JQuery to update some other features, like battle systems and the majority of the forms on CA so that things are 100x nicer and cleaner looking.

Although it's somewhat sad, I am now on V4 of CA's coding. >.< V3 was going to be released but there are so many bugs I was really nervous. So I'm slowly transferring files from V3 to V4 and updating them as I go. So everything is sort of getting one last update before release. Smile
