Item Ideas
« on: April 23, 2006, 05:07:33 pm »
I want to make more items, but I need ideas. That's where you come in :). I have already taken care of those long awaited name color change items, which wouldn't have been possible without that awesome DisplayNameCSS item.

I have an idea based around the new flag item... I plan to modify it to work on another person, rather than yourself, and let you upload your own image or use a remotely hosted image to "tag" other users. Then have another item to remove any tags on your account, in case some one has tagged you.

So, if you have any requests or any ideas you think might be cool to see, let me know! I will try and make them!

Why am I volunteering to do this? It helps my shop just as much as yours :).

An item i wouldn't mind seeing is one that could remove an item/items from someone elses inventory.
i.e  My shop has bags of wool as a currency and people can buy sheep, they have no use other than for fun but i would like an item like a 'Big bad wolf' that can scare someones sheep away no matter how many they have. so if i send a big bad wolf to a member all their sheep run away.  >:D

Hmm... perhaps I could make some sort of burgler/robber/thief instead of the wolf. Or better yet, have other members steal the items, just like the steal money item.

How's that sound?

Stealing items would be codeable. I'm not a big fan on it, but I could probably do it if I had the time. However, right now I am rather busy and thus don't want to spend a whole lot of time coding items that arn't for my site. Maybe after the first week of May(when AP exams and my college course are done) I could do so item coding for other people as well =).
Arrrrr!

 ;D That would be great Basil as you seem to know what your doing.
You should post a link to your site because i got a lot of inspiration and enthusiasm from your shop and the way it is set up and i think others might too.

Well, if you want some ideas for items, you could check the bug tracker if you really want to. Unfortunately, I don't get much free time to do stuff like this (In fact, I should really be doing my school assignment now :P).

P.S Thanks for all your work on SMFShop items! I really do appreciate it. I'll add all your current items (the CSS stuff) to the SMFShop page/download section on this site on Friday.

Ok cool, and you're welcome :). I will take a look at the bug tracker and see if I can get some more ideas. My friend started work on the tag item so we should have that rolling along soon.

The thief item is going to take a bit longer heh... the Steal Money item which I planned to base this off of is a lot more complex, and neither me or my friend are very good with php heh... but it will get done! (hopefully).

I may also do the name glow and shadow items... but I'm not too happy about it not being cross browser compatible. But I suppose if you guys want it, I could make it and add it to the "All Name Effects" item as well.

That is a great idea  O0 and i don't suppose it would take to much to modify Daniels new 'profile flag mod' but unfortunatly way beyond my capabilities. Lets hope that one of the skilled guy's give it a go.  ;)

Wouldn't be THAT hard to code. As tazpot said, just change the profile flag mod around a little and it will work.

Of course, you didn't here this from me and I am not giving myself a deadline, but one of my goals over the summer is to come a real pet mod...
Arrrrr!

Sounds promising  8)  I think it would be a great way to keep interest on a site. At the moment my members are loving the steal feature i think i might need a serious crimes squad to keep an eye on them.  :D
