Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

As part of my quest to consolidate all of the modding resources in one place, I've started to upload the Maplantis DB to SEN. As of now I've uploaded all of the GRPs.

Where do you come in? Well... all of the description and author information was lost. I've done my best to fill it in from memory, but it turns out there are a lot of files that I just don't remember where they came from. (The problem will only get worse once I start uploading all the other, non-Maplantis files I have lying around. At least I had some partial notes to go with the Maplantis stuff...)

I would really appreciate it if people were able to look through the DB and see if there are any files marked with author "Unknown" that they recognize. A lot of the names of files are placeholders too.

Do you happen to have some SQL for the maplantis DB? I might be able to install a copy of that on my latova version and speed things up a bit. I only have files you have sent to me but I don't find sql dbs.

No, I only have the files - hence the problem.

👻 👾 👽 💪

If I still had access to SEN's SQL stuff I could give you the maplantis table again. I don't think I kept it, I can't find it :(

lol disregard here it is.

Do you have the table structure? Maybe I could write an excel macro to parse the content into something more... readable :P

EDIT:

Nevermind, I did it anyway and half guessed stuff.

The database has filenames, descriptions, etc. I figure we can probably tell what is what via filesize. The filesize is stored in the db and chances are almost all of the files have different filesizes so we can figure out what is what that way since all the files are just randomly ###.zip (If you have the same files I have, voy)

ACTUALLY. A lot of the ZIPs contain the grp filename inside. which IS in the DB.

Here: have my formatted version of it. Without the ; delimiter farty's one has. Hopefully it's more readable this way.

Thanks Farty, that's helpful. Do we have a table of Maplantis user IDs somewhere? Mine is apparently 79 and I can guess a couple others from the submissions, but for people that only submitted a few files it's more difficult...

I had them as the ###.zips originally but I renamed them all a while ago to help Hercanic when he uploaded them to Modcrafters. (Also so I could find stuff when modding)

DarkenedFantasies -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: No it has been 11 for as long as I can remember. Source: my shuttle menu system
You're right, it has always been 11. I had looked at one of my old maps where I have used 12 or 13 lines of text (with those extra lines being blank) and so assumed it must've been 12 before... but I guess I was redundant back then. Just fired up 1.16.1 now and checked first-hand, and it's indeed 11. lil-Inferno
lil-Inferno shouted: 12 is for when you want to clear the text on the screen imo
Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: No 11 will also clear the text, 12 is just a redundant extra line
I think you need 12 lines if the last line is blank, else the game won't read it as a new line (unless you use a newline control character instead, I guess).

Dem0n -- it's been alright

NudeRaider -- lil-Inferno
lil-Inferno shouted: Can't you just find and replace lmao
I feel like anyone who said they did a somewhat complex match in regex knows what they're doing and that whatever it is couldn't be with simple tools.

Ashamed -- lil-Inferno
lil-Inferno shouted: Can't you just find and replace lmao
I needed a way to get all of a certain players triggers.. If I just find and replace I would of gotten rid of the triggers. I needed to duplicate them. Since the triggers were out of order I couldn't just copy a certain portion.
