The addon would only use communications when it checked IC / OOC status.
Unfortunately, I can't do this on my own. The addon is not hard. It's the web side of stuff that I need help with.
We would need a backend that allows for entry and editing of info in the database, and a way to dump it to XML by server (and maybe faction) We'd also need a host for the DB.
Here's some screenshots of what I have done so far. Nothing is currently working as this is just the addon front end.
This RP Button will appear when you target someone in the database
Clicking it will show the following screen with their info. (And come F2P drop, a portrait on it without the black BG)
There would be a simple switch button for IC / OOC Status.
- FAST, no communications system need.
- Allows for more info (within reason)
- XML data structure allows for other front ends or data extensions.
- Needs web work and hosting
- Need to update the DB yourself regularly (But could be easier with the right web head writing it)
Of all possible solutions, this one is my favorite.
Sort of working in game shot. RP Button is moveable.
