Plugin updates

The Vendor, Statistics and Emailer plugins for Oggy's Rezzer all received an update. Here is a summary of changes. Vendor and Statistics are separately available at Oggy's scripted items (Emailer is included in all packages), as well as in the Vendor bundle for Oggy's Rezzer.

Emailer version 1.1 (updates from version 1.0) :
  • New option EML_incomingcopy that forwards all incoming emails to another email address (useful for debugging purposes).
  • All email addresses now get their spurious spaces removed.

Statistics version 2.1 (updates from version 2.0) :
  • Spurious spaces removed from email addresses from the configuration notecard. This will solve problems related to email commands not working because of an extra invisible space at the end of the line.
  • Avatar legacy names now allowed in option STA_allowedtalkers, in addition to user names. This means you can use
    !!STA_allowedtalkers=Oggy Fink
    instead of the still valid

Vendor version 2.1 (updates from version 1.1) :
  • Complete rewrite of the code handling the VD_sale option, causing a dramatic reduction of memory consumption.
  • email addresses now get trimmed off spurious spaces.
  • Default announces supported through a new VD_defaultannounce option.
  • VD_salemsg now supports %n as a placeholder for object name.
I wish a happy new year 2012 to all avatars around the grid !

Statistics Plugin 2.0

Update !
The Statistics plugin for Oggy's Rezzer 4.0 now comes as version 2.0.

As the previous version, this plugins records some statistics about how the rezzer is used by your visitors and provides commands you can use either by email or by private chat.

However, this version also has some important improvements :
  • Now all email operations (receiving, sending) are done through a separate Emailer plugin (included). Just include it and email functions are active.
  • Now compatible with the Vendor 1.1 plugin or higher. This means that if the Vendor plugin is installed, sales are recorded and reported along with the Rezzer's statistics.
  • Email subject filtering for email commands is now case insensitive, and supports a "Re:" prefix.
  • More than one STA_email option is allowed in the configuration notecard.
  • Some minor bugs were squished.
The reason why email functions were deported to the Emailer  plugin is to prevent the statistics plugin from  suffering from the llEmail() 20 seconds penalty : now only the Emailer plugin is put to sleep during 20 seconds after sending an email, and not the whole statistics plugin. Plus all the email sending and receiving is now centralized and done asynchronously with respect to other plugins, which is A Good Thing®.

Now available at Oggy's scripted items market place store for as cheap as L$20.

Vendor 1.1 for Oggy's Rezzer

Here is another plugin for Oggy's Rezzer version 4.0, one that I wrote on popular demand : Vendor 1.1, now available at Oggy's Scripted Items.

Install this plugin into your rezzer and turn your rezzer into a vending machine. Your customers will be able to get a copy of your objects by paying the rezzer.

To use this plugin, you just have to decide which object is for sale, its price, the delivery method and an optional announce.

Adding one line per sale in the configuration is enough to achieve this, thanks to the new !!VD_sale option, as in the following example :

!!VD_sale=Great Yachts|1000|Great Yacht (boxed)|This great yacht costs L$ %p.
(%p is automatically replaced by the price - more such features exist).

More options allow this plugin to be as secure as possible, like the default «proof» mode. In this mode, the plugin will check if everything is ok in the configuration but will disable effective sales. Instead it will output a list of prices so that you can see if everything is OK. If it is, add the option
to activate the plugin. Sales can then occur.

Other options include the way announces are emitted (whisper/say/shout/none) or the facility to send emails when a sale is made. To use this feature, you will just need the (included) Emailer plugin, coming with detailed instructions too to use the advanced features - but the defaults will do very well.

Moreover, the Vendor 1.1 plugin is cooperates with the Statistics 2.0 plugin to allow the recording and reporting of sales statistics.

As always, feel free to email or IM me if you have any question or feature request, or encounter any problem !

Statistics 1.0 for Oggy's Rezzer

Here is a new plugin for Oggy's Rezzer (version 4.0 or higher) named Statistics 1.0. Now available at Oggy's Scripted Items.

As the name suggests, the job of this plugin is to record statistics about the rezzer : how many times it was touched, how many times each object was rezzed and when.

Collected statistics are gathered into a statistics report that can be scheduled (every xx minutes/hours/days, see options) or on demand (see commands). The plugin communicates either by e-mail (several addresses can be used) and/or by IM/private chat.

Commands you can send to the plugin (email or chat over a private channel) can be used among other things to make an "instant" report, to pause or resume the scheduled reports, to change the time interval between two scheduled reports...

Installation is easy (put the script into the rezzer, reset the rezzer and you're done with reasonable default settings!) and configuration can adjusted by adding a few options to your configuration notecard. Detailed instructions are in the included notecard.

This is but version 1.0 of this plugin, please let me know if you need more features or encounter problems !
