Rework on private market/finish squads

Post by Admin on Sat Nov 28, 2009 6:55 am

Will have my last exam in an hour and a bit, then get home, catch up on sleep and work on private market and squads:

Private market will remain working as it is now (in terms of putting up resources, withdrawing and doing trades) but will make it easier to work with, and easier to understand (hopefully)
Squads get a few additions, amongst others:
Alliance leadership being able to see squad membership
Alliance leader/2ic have the ability to add/remove players to a particular squad
Squad leaders access to base page of members

Any ideas you have to private market/squads (either in terms of functioning OR user interface), are welcome to be posted. I will most likely not comment because I have my own ideas however this is just random brainstorm, so worst case scenario I'll come back in 12 hours and find 3 pages of spam which I'll read through but ignore anyway. But I am confident that per page there might be 1-2 useful ideas which might be worth considering.

Ok, awaiting feedback.
Adding a table in the main private market page with an overview of the best offers for each trade combination (Kuwal <=> Untrained, etc.)

What you see in the screen is what is coded already, releasable at any moment.
I really want this to be idiot proof, so awaiting any remarks on what is not absolutely clearly understandable from the setup below.

Looked OK to me, but then that is no proof it is idiot proof.

Looks fine to me.

Clarification: It just displays the best offers, it doesn't give the option to buy them from that page, you sill have to buy through the normal way, yes?

And perhaps you should put somewhere that the trades all have a 3% fee, as it doesn't seem to be written anywhere (If that is the case, which I thought I heard somewhere...)

Looks good to me.

just a few points, as stated above please list the correct fees.

and you do still have to buy them the same way and not from that screen right?

how quickly will it update? so i buy all the resources at best price, ho long before it updates because if its not immediate it may cause problem when the two pages dont list the same trades.

is it possible for 2 trades to go through at the same time? like the neg nag bug in SGW?

it updates on page refresh, duh
no that main screen is only for information gathering.

neg naq bug is an inherent 'problem' of computers processing data in parallel instead of in series
it can be avoided though to some extent.

ok, private market is officially finished and released to 100%

So unless I hear some feedback about issues, I wont be doing any major changes to it.

I like this new format, can you still do partial trades by entering a lower value? I assume so but you never know...

I really hope that was a rhetorical question

1) there's an input box allowing you to enter how much you want to spend
2) there is a javascript calculator

allowing to purchase only complete trades would defeat the purpose of both and hence making it appear I've wasted the last 3 days of my life for nothing (at least the parts of the days i was working on this)

Well you never know and if you don't ask you won't get answers...

But yeah it was just a clarification, as I said I assumed it would be so.

No, it's NOT idiot proof, because this:

Buy 212,500,000,000 Kuwal for your 500 Turns
[RATE: 1:425,000,000]
Means I sell 500 turns for 212B Kw, right?

But when I go to the offer in order to buy it, it switches over, and says I buy 500 turns for 212B Kw. Which is ridiculous, frankly. (the price, not the switchover)

Yeah but that is due to someone posting that offer, probably not realising what turns are worth. Nothing to do with the coding or re-coding of the market

And yeah that does say BUY KUWAL for YOUR TURNS but is clearly the other way around in the actual market...

How about a drop down option that you can hit a + sign to show all members in the squad then retract it by hitting a - sign?

I just want some sort of way to see squad members Smile Dont really care how but I also dont want a super long list with every1's name on it. I feel the squad members should be grouped so you can see just 1 group at a time to make it easier to read.

I am proud to announce that 6 months later than expected I have the squad changes almost done, should get released sometime today

leaders and 2ic will get access to the squad functions and lists that were only available to squad leaders.

Things I will NOT be adding for now (if ever):
- see a list of people who aren't a member of any squad
