I made this, appeares interesting and you can switch recommended faction side within config

###################################################################################################

CUSTOM CHARACTER LOGIN SCREEN OPTIONS

Recommended.Faction.Enable

Default: 1 - (alliance)

2 - (horde)

Recommended.Faction.Side = 2

Creates a temporarry fake character.

Is there some kind of reward or incentive for selecting the recommended faction?

Nope, It’s just influencing the player to chose a side /emoticons/default_tongue.png

Why no sugest the player to create character of the faction with lower amount of characters? maybe even the race/class.

Uhm didnt thinked about that…

I assumed that balancing factions was the entire point of the patch. That’s why I asked about incentives.

True /emoticons/default_smile.png That’s why it can be disabled at any time ^^

I was going to suggest the same thing…

I just have a few friends go in with GM accounts and do a “Alliance/Horde population control”

Some people get pissed off, but it works /emoticons/default_smile.png

i can you change the clothes?

Yes you can, this std::string equipmentTemplate = "0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 60000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 60001 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 " is the same as the column in database, 60000 is the chest and 60001 is the book (weapon)

How about move that into config? /emoticons/default_smile.png maybe even you can add diferent gear based on class/race, also, the sugest the player to create character of the faction with lower amount of characters thing, maybe you can take on account the characters conected on the last X days (config) and over a certain level (config).

Something like?

-Set recommended faction and class of the week ?

Might be a problem for me, idk how to get the id from the string after a number of space… Like checking the place where id 60000 is in the string

Or even the day.

Maybe, idk:

std::string equipmentTemplate = "0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 “+.$config1.+” 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 “+.$config2.+” 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 "

oh is that still working?
