    Sorry for posting so much suggestions, it's like the only forum that I feel I can contribute to :p.
    I think there was a world viewer program(MoreTerra?) that had a feature where it showed a progress bar of how much is done in the world already. Like TEdit, it tells you what bosses have been defeated and NPCs discovered, etc; but it also showed a progress bar of it too.
    So I wanted to know if it was possible for someone to make a plugin where it can track the world's progress and present it as a progress bar in HTML format (or something similar) so it can be viewed from a website.
    Interesting idea? Not worth it?

    If you have someone who's good at PHP/HTML, use this: https://github.com/WhiteXZ/RESTExtension
    The /ext/world/info gives lots of world info.
    I have no idea if I'll develop it any further, as I lost a lot of interest, but it should provide a nice world status bar if you do pretty things with it. I'd be interested in seeing what you do, too.

    Well. Wolfje is, but i know for a fact he bananaing hates php thought, hahaha.

    And i know hes busy, probably too busy with working on Seconomy and irl to take on other projects at this stage. However, He did make a web portal plugin ages ago, long before REST was implemented even, and it was bananaing amazing.

    Ill ask him when he has more time, as this stuff is very useful, although not a necessity

    If I ever get around up learning HTML and php I'll start pairing things like this with scripts as well

    Neat idea.

    fwiw I don't think you need PHP for this. Could be done completely clientsided with jQuery and JSONP?

    No idea, I haven't gotten around to learning web languages, and probably won't for a while yet as I have a large (non-TShock) project coming up

    This thread is sort of related and I don't want to start a new one, so:

    Is it possible to develop a plugin that makes exploration/fog busting mutual for all players? As in, when someone explores, everyone on the server will see what they have explored. It quickly gives players an idea about where they should focus their exploring efforts.

    *edit* I have googled and asked around in various forums to no avail, so my last hope is here. Pardon my ignorance.

    as far as i know the map system is client sided. so that would mean client modification which is not what tshock does :)

    Thanks for the reply. I dearly hope someone will make a client side mod that can sync the exploration of everyone on a server! :)
