Dramatar Avatars! The More Dramatic, Dynamic Avatar
Mod Version: 0.3.0, by DarkWolf74 (Member) DarkWolf74 is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.2.1 Rating: (7 votes - 4.14 average) Installs: 19
Released: 08 Sep 2011 Last Update: 05 Nov 2013 Downloads: 106
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template External Content  

This plugin allows you to quickly and easily use Dramatars as your default avatar for members within your postbit, profiles and members list. This works on vB4 and should work on vB3.7+ as well.

Dramatars are a whole new style of dynamic avatars, much like Monster ID and etc but with a new flare. There are several types of Dramatars available to choose from, all of which are dynamically generated based on your end users email.

This plugin also places nicely with Gravatar and makes use of it by default. If ever your end users have a Gravatar set up, it will be displayed instead of Dramatars. Or if you choose, you may opt to only display Dramatars!

Dramatar Types:
The Blockies


Anime


Rag Doll


Spirograph


Abstract


Arc


Boxy



Installation:
  1. Simply import the product XML in and select overwrite if needed to upgrade.
  2. Configure through vBulletin Options -> User Picture Options

Updates:
  • 0.3.0 - Fixed sizing issue while using Gravatar & added The Blockies
  • 0.2.7 - Fixed non-display of images while using Gravatar
  • 0.2.6 - Fixed a minor flub in the formatting
  • 0.2.5 - Initial public release

If you like Dramatars, consider going to the site and liking it on Facebook, +1ing it on Google and/or tweeting about it on Twitter. Donations are welcome and greatly appreciated, too!

No feedback so far? See it got a low rating from someone. Kind of curious as to why. If you'd like to expand on your rating in a comment, that'd be great!

I love hearing feedback, either good or bad. So long as it's productive, it's all good.

Kraxell, added a screen shot for you of the options page as well as some others. Everything from Dramatar Type down are plugin settings.

Haven't installed yet, although it looks very promising.

If you have any feedback or ideas, please feel free. Still much more to do on the site and service itself though, too. Have more Dramatar styles planned, plus the whole parts submission system so artists can submit their own pieces such as hair, hats and whatnot.

Anyway, enough rambling.

It didn't add any options to my avatar edit page, I just see my pre defined avatars and there's a link to your site that makes the page twice as wide, is that the mod?

Here's a link to the screenshot, you may have to scroll over to see the whole thing:

Conehead555, thanks for pointing that out. I've fixed that format flub. There's nothing that the end user needs to do however to select an avatar. They're built by the site dynamically for each user, much like MonsterIDs.

To configure the plugin, go to Settings -> Options -> User Picture Options

There you can set the type displayed, what size it is and if you want to make use of Gravatars.

The plugin does not add avatars to the selection list. It changes the default avatar and displays automatically for any user who does not have an avatar chosen.

Let me know how it looks with the new version installed [allow overwrite on import] and if you have any further questions.

We've done really well so far, celebrating 500,000 avatar requests today and due to a huge bump in traffic are set to pass 1,000,000 avatars served in just over 5 days! Some very busy blogs and forums have picked us up and things are still humming along like clockwork.

We'll be rolling out some new outfits and such for both the Rag Dolls as well as the Anime Dramatars some time this weekend.

Looking forward to that 1 million mark!

Well, we're looking at nearly 43 MILLION avatar requests right now, with an average of 150,000 requests a day. Not too shabby!

I'm happy that there are indeed sites out there who enjoy using Dramatars. Now if only I had more time to devote to this "personal" project, so I could whip up a few more avatar sets.

Glad that you enjoy it!

A new minor update has been released that fixes a broken image issue. I will be working on new Dramatars this month and hope to have them released soon.

If you have problems or suggestions, please feel free to post in the thread! Thanks!

I kepe re-reading the OP, but I literally have no idea what this mod does! The closest to an explanation is "dynamic avatars, much like Monster ID", but I don't know what a Monster ID is, either. I even clicked through to the linked website, and couldn't work it out from there, either! Is there anywhere which just basically tells you what this is?

It allows your members to download their own avatars from this guys site. He has a wide selection I guess. I think you can also customize but not sure.
