View Full Version : LBP2 and LBP1 Prefixes for Level Showcase

01-21-2011, 05:07 PM
Seeing as how both Little Big Planet 1 and 2 levels are going into the same showcase, I think there should be a prefix implemented like the F4F thing.

It make the showcase much more organized, and make it easier for people to find levels for a specific game.

If it was implemented, maybe it could look something like this; F4F: LBP(#): Level name

It would be a real help :)

Great minds think alike ;)

However, it would be nice to know before we go into the level thread if it was LBP2 or 1. Maybe along with the prefix "F4F" option, we could have another for "LBP1" or "LBP2"? It would also be nice to group them (only LBP1 levels and/or only LBP2 levels) with a search function.

I agree! Great and helpful idea!

lol well then... um... I'll just... *sigh* shouldn't you be working on a logic pack or something? :p

This, or possibly color-coded titles, would be superb.

The Dark Forest = LBP1

The Dark Forest = LBP2

They should match the forum tab color for each game as well.

Just another thought...

how about just make a level showcase under the lbp2 section of the site. that way it's all separate and don't have to worry about color coding and making a legend so that everyone knows what is what

I say CC strip the lbp.me 1/2 badge icons and put those infront of the threads. :P

Maybe he can add a filter option, where you can pick:

• LBP2
• All

that way, people who want LBP2 levels just see LBP2 levels, LBP1 levels are displayed to LBP1 people, and of course the All option for people who want all levels to appear. :)

I've been looking into this for quite a while - ever since we were able to distinguish LBP2 and LBP1 levels automatically, actually. Problem is, a limitation with the vBulletin software - namely, the way prefixes function - makes it quite difficult to implement. I'll have to a) find a new way to distinguish LBP1 and LBP2 content (I'm thinking something a little sleeker than a prefix) and b) find a way to sort by that information. I'm not sure how difficult it'll be to get working because I've yet to dig into the code, but my guess is it won't be an easy task. Either way, we're definitely working on a solution.

EDIT: Progress has been made - hurray! I can't really reveal what or how just yet (it's definitely an unfinished feature), but suffice to say I've sorted the toughest obstacles. I'll work some more tomorrow when my mind is fresh and I have more energy.

Deja vu O_O yeah I agree, i thought the same thing a couple of months ago. And im happy CC is working on it, cant wait to see how it turns out.

Hey CC, I like the new look and filter option! I'm not sure it's perfect though. I filtered to search for all LBP2 levels on the 'Cool Levels' page and only 3 came up, and 2 of the 3 were actually LBP1 levels. This (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?4783-Project-Flux) being one of them, and this (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?25428-Power-of-the-Planet-***SPOTLIGHTED!***) being the other.

I pretty sure that it's just because they'd been republished in LBP2, I think so anyways, but i may be wrong, like pretty much everything else I say.
