[MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

Well, I think it's about time that I start listing MODs I've done for Nova. The majority of my MODs have been written for the simming organization I'm with, UCIP. However, if you like the idea behind the MOD and would like to use it, you are more than welcome to.

To start things off, this MOD adds a stardate, the date and time that the site setting uses to display the date and time.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

There's several methods of stardates which all makes sense considering the TNG scale.

So really I find them down to personal taste.

Yours seems to have a different range than the one I prefer from the old sms.

Looking at my old sms it says:

Stardate: 63957.61
Date: May 9, 2386

My question is, is yours able to edit to adjust to that, or is it set to only your values?

Currently want to put one on my nova, but holding back.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

The MOD can be tweaked for it to display the Stardate the way you need it to. Currently, with the way it is written, it takes the Stardate that you set in you Nova configuration and just tacks on the existing month and date which is how the origination I SIM with does their Stardate. If you would like to provide me with how you get your Stardate, I can do a rewrite just for you so it works the way you need it to.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

I wouldn't know where to find the math to be honest.

It's no big deal, was just curious if you had a pre-set selection. I would hate to take your time just for my own unnecessary needs.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

I have no problem doing this for you. What you could do is take you old SMS and compress it into a zip file, send it to me, and I'll go through the files and find it myself. Afterwards, I'll be able to set you up with what you are needing.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

It's simply the same one that is included in the latest SMS provided on Anodyne's site.

I never modded it.

Thanks in advance.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

Would it be sms 2.6.10? If so, I'm unable to download the file as it isn't found through downloading from http://www.anodyne-productions.com/index.php/sms/index.

EDIT: I have been able to locate the archive elsewhere.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

odd, well i do knwo the stardate mechanic in sms did not change, so since my host uploaded sms 2.6 for me to install for my sites, I can only offer you an old 2.6.8 from my old backups.

Download: http://ulysses.rpgs-r.us/downloadfiles/sms-268.zip

Please wait five minutes before clicking the link, it is still uploading slowly via ftp.

EDIT: Ah no worries

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

I am working on an update on this MOD to incorporate what your asking for. As it stands a base requirement will be that your web server be running at least PHP version 5.2. The reason for this is that strtotime and mktime PHP functions can't handle dates past the year 2038 on 32-bit systems. What I'm using is the DateTime class that is in PHP 5.2 to get around this.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

I think your math is off somewhere. It looks like the TOS style stardate would actually be the TNG style stardate and vice versa. TNG stardates were always at least 5 digits long.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

I verified my dates based off whatever I set my year as on my SMS2 install. I'll take screen captures to show and edit this post with them.

EDIT: Added screen shots of SMS2 stardates.

Re: [MOD] Nova-UCIP-Stardate--Date/Time

Ahh, I wasn't paying attention the year. The TNG one makes sense now that I see the year, though the TOS one still looks a little off. I guess that'd have to chalked up to whoever wrote the original stardate script!
