Version 1.5!

Version 1.5 is out now!
The new features in Version 1.5

  • Newly desginned interface and icon.
  • Login account – no need to worry about codes when doing a collab. No need to remember peoples username and emails – everything is a lot simpler and much quicker!
  • CSO Uploader. When you upload a park all CSOs will be uploaded. This will (soon) create a directory of every CSO set there is. This will be used in Version 1.6 and serve as a backup for the future.

Note: CSO sets cannot be downloaded at present. Downloads will be included in later versions of the application. If you are concerned about the usage of your sets please contact me at admin@matt9537.co.uk.

Enjoy!

I’m Back!

I have been absent (if you weren’t aware) for the past month or so, in Brazil for work. So there hasn’t been any updates.

I am planning on doing more tutorials this weekend so keep an eye out (any requests then let me know!)

Version 1.4 of the Park Manager is under way and here’s a quick update:

Now you can search for Parks and Rides using the Park Manager!

It’s A Challenge!

The It’s A Challenge contest is still ongoing and with 19 days left there is still time to enter!
Can you convert a wild landscape into an awesome amusement centre? Build on it a park, ride, firework show, zoo – whatever you want!!!

Extensions can be given if you need more time on the project!

Bug In 1.3

Unfortunately, it has come to my attention there is a bug in Version 1.3 relating to downloads. When trying to download a park to a custom location an error is displayed.

This is a bug which has been fixed. You must re-download version 1.3 from the download page to fix this.

 

Sorry for the hassle and the inconvenience.

Collab Hub

‘m not releasing the application until I’ve implemented the Collab Hub into it.
I’ve just started work on it and it’s going very well. Here’s an overview of the plans and please leave any suggestions!

Step 1:
You create a new collab project and enter the names of your fellow collabers

Step 2:
App generates you a unique  code which you give to your fellow collabers

Step 3:
They go onto the collab hub and enter the code and voila!

Notes:
You can only join the collab if you have the unique code and you are listed as being apart of the collab.
This is limited sercuity, I know, but…I will implement tougher sercuity measures at a later date.

Features:
The Collab hub will be consisted of the following features:

  • Park Uploader - Upload a the park file that you will be working on. I also plan to add autobackups to help save corrupted files etc.
  • DATCSO - DATCSO will be implemented (of course!) to make collabing files easier. All CSO needed for the file and what sets you are missng will be displayed for each user.
  • Chat Window - A little chat window…allowing you to chat away, leave comments etc etc – all semi-live of course!
  • File Viewer - You will have your own directory on the server for your collab. You can upload anything collab related here. Parks, audio, screenshots, videos, pictures etc etc. There will be a gallery viewer for the pictures and all files can be downloaded by all users. You can chat, upload a screenshot of your progress and all other collabers will see it instantly

I hope this all sounds good!
I may implement email notifcations if you guys want it.

A Few Updates

Sercuity Update

A server side update has been undertaken. This improves sercuity on the File Upload side. For Version 1.3 this will remove restrictions on the text that can be entered in the Name and Description field. Special characters (such as full stops, dashes, underscores etc) will now be allowed.

These sercuity improvements will be rolled out across the entire server.

Sort Update

When searching for parks, you have the option to change the order the parks appear (order by date uploaded, order by rating etc). If you select ‘No Order’, as default, the parks will arrive in order of their upload date.

I have corrected this and for Version 1.2 and when you select ‘No Order’ all parks will be displayed in a random order.

Bug Located

I’ve just spotted a bug that affects version V1.2 and lower. When viewing  parks  that contain CSO an error is shown. If you select ‘CONTINUE’ the application should carry on fine.
This bug has been fixed for V1.3
