Intersect Panel, what is it?
It is first of all a tool that gives the player using the Intersect engine (By AscensionGameDev) the possibility to connect with the game account. It allows you to list all the characters in the account. For each character, you have the ability to view the inventory, quests (finished or in progress) and variables related to your character.
You also have a ranking system to locate yourself in the server. With regard to the account itself, you can change your email and/or password. And it also displays the rank (Moderator or player).
Administration side: you can view all NPCs (non-player characters), maps, items, banned list and modification of the config.json directly. You are not required (except at installation) to edit the config.json file to modify a value.
How long have I been on it?
Since March 28, 2019 (2 weeks at the time of writing). I try to make big updates once a week. But having another project on the side, I can't guarantee anything.
What's in it?
Here is a short list of available functions:
Account and character management
Possibility to edit your email and password
Allows you to see all the characters in the account
An administration panel with:
List of maps
List of accounts
List of bans
List of objects
List of NPCs
The character can see:
The inventory (if the object is equipped or not)
Quests (with the different steps and if it is finished)
Variables (if visible)
Location in the map (map name, direction and position)
Here is a small overview of what I have planned to implement. Of course, I have other ideas but I limit myself to that:
In the next version 0.8 :
[V0.8] Server management
[V0.8] Multilingual support
[V0.8] Create a cache for SQL queries (currently too many)
In another version:
[V0.?] A simple and efficient installer
[V0.?] List of all events
[V0.?] API to retrieve events
[V0.?] All details and variables of each type (NPCS, Event, Maps,...)
[V0.?] Ability to delete/edit/add information in the administration panel
[V0.?] The panel adaptable on phones / tablets /....
Version 0.7 then?
I update the changelog of the git to see it advance. I am currently at version 0.7 because before, I was not sure of my motivation and my result. But several people encourage me so here is this version.
Editing the json config.json in the administration panel
Added Copyright Intersect;)
Add time to generate the page (in s)
Added the number of sql requests made for this page
Problem set to retrieve a value in the config.json (Router)
Simplification of the database layer
Adds more modularity allowing to add databases as much as you want.... It's optional, why? I don't know.
Added an Itable interface to create cohesion between each database entity
Adding a WebServer class for later (this one is not used yet)
Added a ranking system with 2 possible types (level, xp, variable,...) => Warning: The system does not currently create a cache. It sometimes takes a while to calculate everything (depending on the number of players registered in the server)
Added documentation for config.json and api
What about the source code?
Everything is open source. This is my gitlab: https://gitlab.com/The-Nico26/web-intersect... (Yes, I'm on Gitlab )
Attention: the project is at the beginning of its journey! Currently, you need to know yourself in PHP before you can modify the functions. If you have any questions, remarks, suggestions or others, I will write them down and see if it is possible. However, the configuration is explained in the gitlab documentation (Documentation/config folder) allowing you to test the panel on your server.
Hoping that I have been able to explain most of the things. There's a first time for everything and for me, applying for a project like this is not easy ^^
I wish you a beautiful day
