Community Scenarios Manager

Unread postby aesqe » Tue Sep 10, 2013 12:02 pm

Hi everyone :)

For the past week or so, we've been working on a Community Scenarios manager, a tool to help us create a Community Scenarios section on the UoC website.

The main motivation was to make the user created scenarios list available publicly, so that anyone willing to try some user scenarios can easily browse and download them, without needing to register in the forums.

You can find the manager here, for now: https://unityofcommand.net/cs/

It's a simple thing, really:
  1. you upload your scenario file with an optional screenshot and description
  2. we approve your scenario - a process which should be quick and painless (but necessary)
  3. your scenario is listed with the rest of the approved community scenarios

Some key information:
  • your login username and password are the same as the ones for the forum (if you're logged in here, you're logged in the manager as well)
  • all approved scenarios are publicly accessible and one does not need to be logged in to download the files
  • after you upload a scenario, you cannot edit its data any more
  • you can delete (both permanently and temporary) your scenarios at any time
  • if you want to upload a new version of a scenario, you can delete the old version and upload a new one
  • you are free to not use the manager and continue posting your scenarios here in the forum

Coming soon:
  • download counter
  • browse by game type
  • sort by title, date, user
  • search

With all this said, I really hope that at least some of you will find it useful :)

Please post your suggestions, bug reports, and general comments here.

Thank you!

I'd like to see some distinction between Multiplayer and Single Player scenarios, although there are almost no MP scenarios yet (it would really be cool if some of the users would modify their scenarios for Multiplayer).

Will it be possible to delete scenario from menu/game-level?

@HolyDeath: no, I'm afraid you'll have to delete scenarios manually from your hard drive...

@spillblood: added SP/MP distinction to the scenario listing

Add a [sortable] field with the start date of the scenario.

this have more inpact.
Add a [sortable] field with the rating to the website and editor and make this visible within the "User generated scenarios".

As a newbie who is really enjoying the game I would support this as well " instruction on how to add downloaded scenario into the game"

Maybe a you tube video?

Thanks

@Harry_vdk: I'll get on it on Monday, thanks for the suggestions :)

@HolyDeath & @MarkTusa: please see this answer on our FAQ Wiki page: https://unityofcommand.net/wiki/FAQ#Wher ... located.3F (just place the downloaded scenario files into that folder and load them from the main game menu: "Load Scenario" -> "User Generated Scenarios")

I was thinking more like a short description on "Community Scenarios" page. That's where people would expect info on how to download scenarios. Maybe a "forced" addon to each description?
