Players will be up-to-date with upcoming events as well as have the ability to check out currently active ones while administrators will be able to plan events months ahead or start / end event at any point in time (Scheduled events can be only stopped by reloading the table).
Events can be set in a MySQL table by inserting event type, start of the event (UNIX_TIMESTAMP), end of the event (UNIX_TIMESTAMP) and two optional values which can come in handy when you would like to specify variables in an event, e.g. Experience Event’s rate.
You can reload events in real time. If server starts or an administrator performs an event-reload and event’s start time is lower than the current time it will be automatically started (Reload will cancel out currently running events which will be automatically started right after).
Before the start of each event, a notice will be displayed to the players.
Event overview window offers players a nice overlook over previous/upcoming events in the current month. As stated above, they will be able to preview currently active events and their rewards. There is also a button which serves as a “door” to event’s quest or whatever action you desire. Event overview window can be accessed through a small button on the mini-map window.
- User can browse through his current month calendar by using the arrows bellow the banners.
- Banner general colour is blue. If it is a weekend, it is coloured red.
- Banner that hold user’s current date will have a flash effect around it.
- By hovering over a banner, a tool-tip will be shown below the board listing every event starting on that day.
- Active events are automatically appended/removed from the board.
- User can also preview the rewards for each active event.
- By clicking on the event button, window will be closed and event’s quest will be opened.
