[Release] Announce due dates of territory payment on logon (Updated 5/1).

74 posts in this topic

This is a small script that announces when territory payments are due. The script is in American format currently, if you're European, flip %2 and %3 around in the _dueDate = format. Under _dueDate the format is like this:

%1 = Year
%2 = Month
%3 = Day

This doesn't count for 

["TaskCreated",["",format["<t color='#E48A36'>%2</t> territory payment due: <t color='#E48A36'>%1</t>",_dueDate,_name]]] call BIS_fnc_showNotification;

They are just calling the variable present in the event notification. %2 is calling the territory name and %1 is calling the due date.

Installation:
1. Add the file announcepay.sqf to your mission folder.

	_playerUID = getPlayerUID player;
        {
            _flag = _x;
            _buildRights = _flag getVariable ["ExileTerritoryBuildRights", []];
            if (_playerUID in _buildRights) then
            {
			_nextDueDate = _flag getVariable ["ExileTerritoryMaintenanceDue", [0, 0, 0, 0, 0]];
			_name = _flag getVariable ["ExileTerritoryName", ""];
			_dueDate = format 
			[
				"%2/%3/%1",
				_nextDueDate select 0,
				_nextDueDate select 1,
				_nextDueDate select 2
			];
			 ["TaskCreated",["",format["<t color='#E48A36'>%2</t> territory payment due: <t color='#E48A36'>%1</t>",_dueDate,_name]]] call BIS_fnc_showNotification;
            };
        }
        forEach (allMissionObjects "Exile_Construction_Flag_Static");

2. Add this line at the bottom of your InitPlayerLocal.sqf:

waitUntil {!isNull findDisplay 46 && !isNil 'ExileClientLoadedIn' && getPlayerUID player != ''};
uiSleep 1;
execVM "announcepay.sqf";

3. Done.

Screenshots (This is what the user will see when they log in):

v1.1 
- Added color
- Changed the way due dates were delivered. I couldn't get the exile messages to work correctly, no matter what I tried.

Nifty, EXILE should have something to this end as standard.

Loving this. Out of interest, what happens for players who don't have a territory?

Yeah, if the playerid isn't found in a territory, the if statement doesn't get run.

Just a small tip, it might be nice to have a check for the player to  be on the ground. I know some clients have some lag issues when parachuting in and the notifications really don't help :P

On my personal server, I have a uiSleep30; run before it runs the check. 

Edit: I added a post on the next page of a check that will probably work.

This is great. The little things man, the little things. 

Exactly, those QoL changes are what I am after.
