Local Leaderboards Upgrade Request

Postby Chaffro Schoonmaker » 28 Feb 2009, 07:46

Hi 7Seas-ians,

OK, I wanted to set up a local leader board on group deeded, but public land. The community that this would have been in has 2 groups, one for merchants (who land is deeded to) and one for public, to be notified of any events etc. So I'd have liked to have had the leaderboard able to display the scores from the public group, but if the trophy is set to that group, it gets auto-returned. So can I ask you add an option for the trophy to search for a group's profile key, so it can be set to one group, but listen for boasts from another please?

Sass' advice was to set to the leaderboard to Private and manually add folk, which I'm doing. I've stopped for a break at 150, but still have a further 678 folk to add :( . I know there are other possible workarounds, like cutting a small patch of land and deeding it to the public group (I'm not a land owner or officer either, so would need to get the land owner to have to do this), etc, but that would pretty much mean the trophy would have to stay put in one place.

Thankyou!

:D

I looked into this today, since I need to go in and make a patch for the leaderboards anyway (why has only ONE PERSON since beta and since we launched told me that clicking the board to get your standing doesn't actually do anything?)

Unfortunately, it's not possible. SL's scripting language only has two functions to check the active group -- llSameGroup and llDetectedGroup. All they can do is compare the scripted object's group against another object's group. I can't have it, say, store the name of the group and then compare it against the user; it has to be the object's active group.

Also -- note that it's NOT gonna be able to store names and scores for 678 people. The maximum is 200.

Maybe like me they assumed it was only supposed to show the top few? I set it out and never gave it anotehr thought TBH.
