First and most importantly: This update for the LiF:YO Livemap comes with an updated version of TTmod, which needs to be installed/updated to use the new livemap features listed below!
Insert Inventory Items
Both the character management and the RCON console were given this new feature. You can now insert items into player’s inventories. Items can be choosen either by entering the Object ID or by selecting from an abc-sorted list of all items. This list is pulled directly from the server database, so modded items will appear as well.
Items inserted with the character management page are available the next time the player logs in. Players who are online at the time the item is added won’t see it until they relog. Items added to online players with the RCON console are available immediately. The usual ‘Got item xxx’ is shown in system chat and UI.
Character Management Revamp
The frontend of the character management table was basically remade from scratch and extended with some new functions. Along with the new option to give items to players, it displays kills and deaths for each character and has a locator button that shows the last position of any character on the map.
Sorting, filtering and navigating between pages should be a little more comfortable now, since it doesn’t require a page reload anymore. To apply changes to characters like ban/unban, delete and so on, select the character(s) by clicking on the row and use the action form on the bottom.
RCON Messaging to Chat
Messages can be sent to the players system or local chat now. This works for both the broadcast (message everyone) and the individual messages to a certain character. It’s available from the dropdown list of message display targets.
Config Page Split Up
With more and more options on the configuration page I decided to split it up a little. Nothing special there – it’s just categorized in different tabs rather than having everything on a single page with long vertical scroll.
The new “Information” tab now has more detail about TTmod. I’ve also included some webserver and PHP information which will hopefully help troubleshooting issues in the future. Of course this information is present in dedicated maps only.
Each configuration change, character management and RCON action is now logged and can be reviewed in the new ‘Logs’ tab on the configuration page. Since it’s on the configuration page, it can be seen by the owner/administrator only. Although it doesn’t log all the details, it might be a good indicator to track suspicious activity or to spot GM abuse on a server.
See the changelog on the Livemap Download Page for a full list of all changes. Hosted livemaps on feudal.tools will be updated within the next two days.
