Roster Order Preference

Right now the roster seems to be ordered in a “first added to last added” manner. Is there, or could there be, a way to order it alphabetically based on a demographic field(such as Full Name)?

They should have been sorted by character name, same as the gallery. Just an oversight, will fix. I don’t think I want to make it customizable though. There are so many different possible ways somebody could want to sort - by position, by name, by restricted / not restricted, etc. Making a configuration option to cover all those cases would be pretty complex, and I don’t think necessary for most games. There’s always custom code, though, if you want to change how it’s sorted.

By character name is great. Thanks. :slight_smile:

While we’re on the topic of it I guess I have a few other questions/requests.

  1. Right now I believe if you don’t have the appropriate demographic field set(for whatever reason) you’re put in a gallery tab with no name. Could we get a name on that? Something like “Unset” or “Unknown”?
  2. Would it be possible to just have the roster page mimic the functionality of the gallery page? Right now it’s a big, long list with Group 1 at the top, Group 2 after all the members of Group 1, etc. Would it be possible to sort characters by tab on the roster page?

  1. That should have been fixed awhile ago, and it’ll say “No Faction” or “No Kingdom” or whatever you have as your primary group field. Are you still seeing it? It’s working on my test game.

  2. I’m not sure that the tab view will look as nice with the way roster info is displayed, compared to the simple list of gallery icons. And there’s something to be said for prospective players being able to just scroll through a list as opposed to clicking through tons of tabs to find the available characters. But I’ll think about it, thanks for the suggestion.

Just a suggestion while you’re in there on the roster page: A TOC or some other means to navigate through a long roster list would be helpful.
