So, the new award system brings achievements to the table, but some may prefer the old system where it was just awards and they only appeared if you had them. The achievements permanently stay there, so everyone can see them and only light up when you get them. What do you guys think? Should we go back to the old system or keep the new achievement system up? I personally like the achievements to stay, and I made them smaller so they didn't take up too much room. Also, to let you guys know now there won't be anymore achievement icons popping up. What you see now is the maximum there will be on CC Zone. Also, the idea I had for the achievement system (Inspired by the video game TimeSplitters 2) was to give you a specialised title when you hit a certain amount: Bronze Chipster - 8 achievements lit Silver Chipster - 12 achievements lit Gold Chipster - 16 achievements lit
I have to admit, the old awards system was getting a little dated. One of the things I disliked were the square borders around the images. They looked kind of ugly so in the last two days I changed every award with a smooth corner edge and boy did it make a difference! Shortly afterwards, I had to list every single member's award in notepad to get working on converting them to the new system. This took about 6-8 hours to do. After uninstalling the old system and installing the new one, I wrote down all the awards again one by one and then implemented the new achievements system in. I figured the ones most people would be able to get should be the ones that appear, as anyone including the guests could view them and all they'd have to do is highlight the locked image to see how to get it. The hard awards are still there, but appear in the standard awards column, meaning they don't show up until you get them. Overall, the new award system was worth it, but at the price of having to upgrade the entire board, most of the whole process went pretty smooth I think. Also, the auto awards don't appear to be working yet as the blog award isn't being triggered for some reason, but a future update will probably fix that.
After examining the awards again yesterday, I realised that the post award milestones might not be needed. Rockdet did mention this earlier I admit, but now I find that they clutter the user awards over the real achievements and perhaps it's best for it to be limited to the level 149 awards. What do you guys think?
