Custom Buildings upgrade
« on: July 17, 2015, 04:33:58 PM »
So it was brought up to me that our current buildings/content system is a bit unwieldy, and it's not that easy to find a building you want. In response, I proposed that a download system, such as this, can be implemented in place (or possibly alongside) of the Custom Buildings and Custom Content boards.

I give this question to you, the forum. Should we move over to this new system, or is this system we have now just fine? The poll runs for 1 week.

it is unwieldy,but,i think it is fine for now,i think it should be offered alongside of the current system,because that system is working fine,as far as i can see,with IP's and such
Excelsior complex creator
Floor 301,Sky I *destroyed*
Floor 98,Triton center
Floor 50,Excelsior I
Floors 150,175,200-201,Newmarsh towers,Tower I
I sip my tea on the 500th floor,why do you not understand me?
Why you stole some of my buildings?

You ****!

I would not want the new download system implemented if you can not download files if you don't have an account on the forum, because people under 13 are not allowed to make an account, and then they wouldn't be able to download buildings.

to the above
i think that if you are under 13,you can personally ask content creators for download links

(The upgrade was my idea)

My plan - I could program something like this http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center - A building gallery with ratings, comments and downloads

It would be custom made, so it would have provisions for BBC/G1BC/Integration projects.

It would be seperate from the forum but I could beg ryan to provide me access to forum authentication functions (so you would just login with your current details and your username would carry over)

I would not want the new download system implemented if you can not download files if you don't have an account on the forum, because people under 13 are not allowed to make an account, and then they wouldn't be able to download buildings.
with my system you could download things, but you would need a forum account to submit and update content.

I wanted to have something much better for a while, but didn't really know what to use.  I was actually looking for stuff that would run outside of the forum itself, like a downloads gallery.  I don't know if that download plugin would do all of that.

That is what I am proposing :)

I think that in any case, we'd not require registration to download, but we'd require it to comment.
