Here is the ocProducts ocWorld addon, for version 4 of ocPortal:
ocPortal - Download: ocWorld

The addon has been updated to work with version 4 and also tidied up in many areas. In particular the templates now meet modern web standards.

There is plenty of scope for this addon to be improved upon, and anyone has permission to release their own versions of it.

Pretty nifty. However, I have a few suggestions.

Ways to make money "in-game". such as allowing users to have a room with their items. and their items cost money. any time someone buys said item, the creator gets points. Effectively creating a feature to make stores, markets, etc.

This doesn't seem to want to theme with my current theme. or rather the repainted default. But either way, theming of this would be nice.

Have different types of items. example. I can pick up a keycard, a password, a get-out-of-jail-free card, etc. However what about larger items. such as a car? or spaceship? Can you make it so that the larger items must be left somewhere and transported? like a car, you'd have to get into it and move it. same with a spaceship, you can't just pick them up and put them in your pocket.

Player battling? I had a few ideas for this.

1. Users each get X amount of questions, and whover gets the most % correct, wins. and either gets an item from the loser, takes X points, or kills them.

Possibly have "weapon" style items. we have health and unhealth. but weapon style items could be used only in battles. for example. I decide to battle T-Rex, and he has a gun, I have a sword. the gun does 50 damage per turn, the sword does 20, he will win after a few shots. Have it like a final fantasy deal. you pick which weapon you want to use. however some are limited use.

I don't know how probable/possible/practical these are, yet if impleminted, would make the game a bit more fun.

I like your ideas.

I already have 2 some what 3 rpg/ mmorpg type systems on my site and I did have one more until it stopped being developed.
Any way My members like rpg's in which you can fight eacother, buy and sell items and even trade items.


I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

Can you link me to said mmorpg things? I like ocworld, but it needs a bit more developing before I can use it to fit my needs.

Very Interesting.  However I still like ocportal the best.

Where can I configure permsisions and other such things for ocworld? the only one I can find is the "admin ocworld" permission in the global permission thing.

Hi,

That's the only permission as such, although you can also control access to ocWorld via zone permission.

Well you can use ocportal and those you just can not use OCF, you would have to switch that to IPB.

So Chris, are you still working on this? If so, can we get a "weapon" style item? for EX

I create an item…

Name: Basic Laser Gun
Healthy: No
Bribable: Yes
Weapon: Yes

Then in the edit menu, you can assign the following
Weapon Damage: 3
Number of Uses: 50
Ammo Item (if aplicable): Basic Laser rounds
Increase Number of uses by: 50

Breakdown of the above.
Weapon damage is the ammount of health decrimented per item use
Number of uses. How many times can this be used?
Ammo Item. An optional item to give the weapon in question more uses
Incriment Uses By: How many uses the Ammo Item adds to the number of uses.

To go along with these, You could impliment a simple turn based battle. Simple. In the list o fplayers in the room. There is an attack button/link. This informs the person in question that they are under attack and redirects them to the battleground. Both users are now looking at said battleground. The attacker goes first. Picking a weapon to use and uses it. The defender's health is decrimented by the allotted ammount stated in the weapon item's values. The defender then gets a turn to do the same. The battle keeps raging untill either a user dies, The attacker calls off the attack and is returned to the 0,0,0 position of the realm he is currently in. Or the defender decides to run.

I am learning PHP, and I would help, but I can't write to databases yet. However I can do switches, forms, loops, etc…Not that that helps you out any chris :p

Is this compatible with ocPortal4.2?

Hi,

We've put ocWorld out as an example of an addon, and because we had the code already from a site we once did - but I'm afraid as a company with salaries to pay I can't justify us investing in it, as we'd never have a way to earn that investment back and because it's quite a long way from our core product. If we get a client who wants an enhanced version of ocWorld on their site it's a different story, but to be honest that's not very likely due to it's nature.

My hope is that it'll get updated by other people, such as yourself. So good luck if that's what you'd like to do, and you have our blessing.

It should work with v4.2 yes :).

We'd probably be talking a few days of work at our hourly rate (on this page Custom development - ocPortal.com).

Hey Brian! I would guess that the best next step would be to drop ocProducts a note [Contact for dev] outlining what you are looking for. They can then follow up with any questions and quote you a price.

The figure we give is in UK pounds rather than euros. Britain hasn't joined the European single currency, but our currency is collapsing (meaning our prices are actually lower for people overseas than they used to be) so we might soon  :lol:.

It would fall under 'Developer'. If you would like a proper quote I'd be happy to make one up for you :).

That would be nice.  Being a Minor (15) I have very little income, so It'd be nice to have a goal to shoot for.

Unless I can give you guys ad space instead :lol:
