Alert Catalog

I think it's great that people have really gotten into modding Nova - I especially think the alert status and chat mods are pretty cool.

But I got to thinking, we have skin and rank catalogs, why not mod an alert status catalog? That way, anyone can create their own set of alert images or use an existing set, each being specific to their genre and with as few or as many different levels as desired. Give it a little more individual wiggle room. Possible?

Re: Alert Catalog

I made a mod for alerts that uses asset images you can replace.

http://bitbucket.org/mooeypoo/nova-mod-alertstatus

You can replace the images, but then just make sure you replace the values in the database table (and the images names should not have .png at the end). I made it very simple for my own needs but if there's a need to allow for uploading sets of alert images or adding/changing the alert names/images, I don't mind extending the mod to allow for that.

Also, the mod adds the alert image in the sim page, but again, if there's a need to change/add stuff to the mod (like deciding where it should be placed?) let me know, I don't mind working on it more, if there's a need.

Re: Alert Catalog

Cool! Thanks for the reply! I'll let the powers that be know about the offer to extend your mod, and see what they say.

Re: Alert Catalog

Mooey,

I'm actually good with the image showing on the Sim page AND I THINK I have a clue on how to replace the static images with the animated gifs...maybe.

I could use some direction on how to get the image to display centered on the SIM page...

Any pointers in that direction would be awesome.

Thanks,

~ Jer

Re: Alert Catalog

Any chance of getting this added to the Main page as well as the Sim page?

Re: Alert Catalog

What I'm thinking of doing is actually "cheat the system" and create an image with the same name that changes according to the script. I can do that easily with php (MIME headers and write out an image).

That way, you can get into your view files and copy/paste a <img src=...> *wherever* you want and it will update automatically whenever you updated the script.

On top of that I can also set two initial "default" places for those of you who don't want to mess with views so much, so I can put it in sim and main view on the top of the sidebar.

That works?
