Adoptables hack for vBulletin 3.6 Details »
Adoptables hack for vBulletin 3.6
Mod Version: 1.00, by antialiasis (Member) antialiasis is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 35
Released: 12 Jun 2006 Last Update: 04 Sep 2006 Downloads: 189
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

(For screenshots, please view this thread for vBulletin 3.5.)

Note that if you already have this installed for vBulletin 3.5 and then upgrade to 3.6, it should not be necessary to upgrade this hack; however, if something is wrong, by all means try the new product. No changes have been made to the hack files since the 3.5 version.

----------------------------

This hack adds a little adoption center to your forum where your users can adopt lovely little adoptables which will be 'upgraded' as the user gains the posts needed for the next stage. (Thus, an adoptable can be originally adopted as an egg, ten posts later the egg has cracks in it, twenty posts after that it hatches into a baby [insert something cute and loveable here], still fifty posts after that it has grown a little, and 100 posts later it's an adult - or something in that direction.)

2 template edits
4 files to upload
1 product to install


FEATURES

Admin features
- Specify which usergroups can view adoptables, which can adopt, which can create adoptables and which can edit/delete others' adoptables
- Specify whether all users can view the full adoptable list or only those who can administer adoptables
- Specify a maximum number of adopted adoptables per user for each user group
- Specify whether users can adopt adoptables that they created themselves
- Specify whether to use a "general description" for each adoptable, a description for each stage for an adoptable, or both

Adoptable creation features
- Create adoptables with up to five "stages", each with its own image, minimum posts to adopt it, user-specified posts needed to get from the previous stage to this one, and a custom description (if stage descriptions are enabled)
- View list of all your created adoptables
- Edit the adoptables that you have already created if you slipped up
- Only the first stage can be seen by a potential owner - surprise them with what their adoptable grows into

Adoptable management features
- Easily view a list of all adoptables (adopted and available)
- Edit or delete any adoptable easily from the list

Adopter features
- View a list of all available adoptables, only a button-click away from being yours, or of your own adoptables
- Disown an adoptable if you change your mind
- Release adoptables that are at their final stage to the wild so you can adopt new ones without leaving them for somebody else to pick up
- Show your own adoptables off in your profile

1. Download the zip file attached to this post and unzip it.
2. Upload all the files from the upload folder to the appropriate folder in your forum directory.

Nice. But is there any chance of a screen shot or a working demo?

Or have you posted those and I just missed them?

Not really. The fundamental difference is that the adoptables don't actually do anything; they're just there. They don't get hungry, need care or anything.

Eep... I've been on vacation, but now I return to find a major problem with my hack. @[email protected]

Okay, those were two related problems, both of which have been fixed now. Since the fix edited only the install and uninstall codes, I don't think it's necessary to make this into a separate version. I think you should be okay with just reinstalling the product, but if you get a database error, then run this SQL query:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and then you should definitely be fine when you run through the install process again. Sorry about that; I'm not sure how I managed to miss it when originally testing the hack.

Is it possible to integrate this with vbBux?
So that you can chosse in Admin CP:
Adoptions cost one Time Money,
Adoptions cost daily Money (or other returning issues)
If you Adopt, yo get Money.

This looks like a great hack, just the sort of thing that would work very well on my site... but without any pets included, I can't use it.

I was wondering, has anyone here created any images for this hack, and if so, are they willing to share?

installed today and been running some tests before giving it to our members but have come across a problem.

for some reason its not moving onto the next stage when your post count reaches the minimum posts required to advance.

have double and triple checked the install and all seems ok

any ideas ?

It moves on to the next stage via a scheduled task which runs every hour - it won't happen immediately, and not at all if there is no traffic on the forum to run the cron.
