JAVA (Just another Voting Asset)

For previous maps I just searched SC2mapster for a voting system instead of writing my own but I felt all the ones I found lacked some key features. So for my new map I decided to write a very customizable voting system with all the features I feel are needed.

You specify the amount of things to vote for, the amount of choices each thing you vote for has(so you can vote for one thing that has two options and one that has three), you also specify the names of the different things, possibly the timeout timer.

You can also specify some constants on the dialog but they come with some decent values.

One of the things I like about it is that it automatically scales up your dialog depending on the amount of buttons you have so you don't have to specify the exact width and height.



The colored line shows the different constants you can change to change the dialog's size.

Blue is Vote Edge Offset.
Red is Choice Gap
Yellow is Vote gap(basically the distance between the different things you vote for)
Pink is Choice Button Width
White is Choice Button height.

Features:
  • Automatically scales width and height to fit your settings.
  • Allows you to vote for several different things with different amount of choices.
  • Timeout timer
  • Allows you to change your votes around.

Tutorial:

Basically, there are 2 parts to edit.

* The appearence of the dialog box
* The polls and all the button info.

Dialog Appearence:

The library comes with some default values that work fine. If you do want to edit it, the variables you need to edit are: Vote edge offset, choice gap, vote gap, choice button width and choice button height. Use the picture above for reference on how to use them.

Poll info:

There's a couple of places to modify to fix this part.

First place is the Init Vote Options function. It comes with some default stuff(that you probably want to change) but it should help you to get started.

Basically:
Vote Options.Polls = the amount of polls(things to vote for)
Vote Options.Choices[x] = the amount of choices for the Xth poll.
Vote Option.Choice Names[x][y] = The name of the Yth choice on the Xth poll
Vote Options.Poll names[x] = Name of the Xth poll.

To modify the things that happens when a choice is voted for, go to Apply vote results. For each poll you need a switch and for each choice you need a case in the switch. You should be able to figure it out from the defaults in there.

You might also want to modify the Timeout time. That is the time you have to vote before the vote expires.

I didnt slap you, i high 5'd your face.
is this system capable of getting an average number out of the votes? ie: someone votes for 0 and someone votes for 150 and it returns 75

No, but it should be relatively easy to implement.

Edit:

I haven't tried this out but the apparent solution would be to modify the "Voting Done" function and change:

Trigger:
  • General - For each integer a from 0 to (Vote Options.Polls - 1) with increment 1, do (Actions)
    • Actions
      • Variable - Set max = 0
      • General - Pick each integer from 0 to 9, and do (Actions)
        • Actions
          • Variable - Set Total votes[(Picked integer)] = 0
      • Player Group - For each player b in (Active Players) do (Actions)
        • Actions
          • General - If (Conditions) then do (Actions) else do (Actions)
            • If
              • Player Vote[a]<b> != -1
            • Then
              • Variable - Modify Total votes[Player Vote[a]<b>]: + 1
            • Else
      • General - For each integer b from 0 to Vote Options.Choices[a] with increment 1, do (Actions)
        • Actions
          • General - If (Conditions) then do (Actions) else do (Actions)
            • If
              • max &lt; Total votes<b>
            • Then
              • Variable - Set max = Total votes<b>
              • Variable - Set max index = b
            • Else
      • Variable - Set Player results[a] = max index
    • </b></b></b></b>

  • jonas jonas:
    So you are pursuing game dev as a hobby? What industry is your dayjob in?
  • jonas jonas:
    FAANG?
  • Jesus4Lyf Jesus4Lyf:
    Not quite FAANG, less pay for a less hours/stress. Yeah, game dev as a hobby.
  • jonas jonas:
    makes sense. Do we have a hobby game dev subforum to showcase some work?

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
