Clublink: to customize your team in maniaplanet!

Post by Eole » 09 Apr 2013, 17:41

Clubinks are a powerful way to personalize teams in Maniaplanet.
There's two ways to create a Clublink: automatically from your player page, or manually by editing an XML file.

From the player page
To create a clublink, connect to your player page (https://player.maniaplanet.com), select 'Community' and click on 'Teams'.
Image

If you do not have a team yet, it is a good time to create one!
To do so, click on 'Create a team' and follow the instructions.
Please note that you have to host the images yourself.
The format for both emblem and logos images is 512x512 DDS DXT1 (no alpha) with mipmaps.
Image

Once you belong to a team, its name should be visible on the bottom of the 'teams' page (https://player.maniaplanet.com/teams/).
Image

Click on your team, then click on 'Clublink' on the right.
Image

Copy the link given in the page (it starts with 'http://maniamatch.maniaplanet.com/club-link'). Please be sure you have copied the entire link: it is very long, and your browser may hide its end.
Image

Now start Maniaplanet, connect with your account and click on the game you want to set (e.g. Shootmania Storm).
Go to your profile ('Profile' on the left), and paste the Clublink in the 'clublink' field.
Image
Image

Your Clublink is now set!
When you play team modes (e.g. Elite or Combo in ShootMania Storm), the game will be setup with your colors and visuals if the server allows it.
Image

From an XML file
You can also create and host your own Clublink file. It will let you have a bit more control on its content. Once you have edited the XML file, you just have to host it somewhere on the web along with the various resources (emblems, logo, avatars, sponsors) and paste the link inside your profile (see above for more details).

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<club version="1">
  <!-- Name of the team -->
	<name>Example</name>
  
  <!-- Zone of the team (See in game for the zone structure) -->

  <!-- City of the team -->
	<city>Paris</city>
  
  <!-- Colors of the team (Used on the spawns, the poles and the UI) -->
	<color primary="0DA" secondary="95D" />
  
  <!-- Emblem of the team (Used on the spawns, the poles and the UI) -->
  <!-- Must be a dds file in BC1/DXT1 with mipmaps of 512x512 pixels-->
	<emblem>http://www.example.com/Emblem_Example.dds</emblem>
	
	<!-- Players list -->
	<players>
    <!-- ManiaPlanet login of the player -->

      <!-- Nickname of the player (Can be used by game modes to automatically rename the player on the server) -->
			<nickname>My name is Example 1</nickname>
			
      <!-- Avatar of the player (Can be used by game modes to automatically replace the avatar of the player on the server) -->
      <!-- Any format supported by ManiaPlanet can be used (jpg, png, tga, dds, bik) -->
			<avatar>http://www.example.com/Avatar_Example1.png</avatar>
		</player>
    
    <!-- You can add as many players as you want -->
		<player login="Example2">
			<nickname>I'm another Example</nickname>
			<avatar>http://www.example.com/Avatar_Example2.png</avatar>
		</player>
	</players>
  
  <!-- Sponsors list -->
  <!-- They'll be displayed on the sides of the screen during the end of the rounds/maps  -->
	<sponsors>
    <!-- Name of the sponsors -->
		<sponsor name="Sponsor 1">
      <!-- Image of the sponsor -->
      <!-- Any format supported by ManiaPlanet can be used (jpg, png, tga, dds, bik), image ratio 2:1. -->

Nice tutorial!
where will the Logo be displayed? (hasn't been displayed so far)
will the player limit be removed on the official teams site?

    As a side note : we will add a menu to add the generated club link directly from the in-game profile page quite soon.

    ShootMania Teams has a quite high number of player limit (50 I think), it that not enough for your team ?

    The logo is not used yet, but might be in the future.
    I'll let someone from Nadeo Live answer the second question.

    Some questions:

    1. We created multiple teams for storm elite and canyon(because of the dropdown menu) but I can only add one clublink for all titles ? (I added the elite clublink in elite pack but it´s also in normal storm and canyon)

    2. Is there a photoshop pattern for the emblem ? (because ingame it´s not a square on the spawns)

    3. I miss the zone field on the player page and city is in my view useless (in which team all players are living in the same city ?). I would rather see a website field.

    best regards, Jojo

    is this the same as --> When we play praccs on our server the enemy will see our logo & teamname in stead of "blue team"

    Or is this something else?

    Also : City, can i fill in something fun or does it have to be an existing city?

    Yeah, will Stadium be available or shall we use the Canyon?

    How do we make it work, is it automatic? I got our team admins to configure all the info, then some players entered the clublink in their profiles. When we played Elite (3 players with clublink in one team), nothing happened, although S_UsePlayerClublinks setting is set to "true".
    I even tried S_ForceClublinkTeam1, but that didn't seem to do anything at all.
