Spout Economy GUI

    Here's an interesting idea for Spout users, which should be possible. Pressing M (a different key can be assigned with a chat command) will bring up an economy GUI that hooks into Essentials Economy, iConomy, or BOSEconomy and provides an intuitive GUI for managing payments. There will be a pay button with a list of players and a filter feature, which asks how much to pay. It will show your current balance, and maybe support for shop plugins and similar things could be implemented as well to make economy managing as user-friendly and simple as possible. This shouldn't be THAT hard to make, but I'm not a developer, so I don't know. I would LOVE to see this, so if you think this would be a good idea, remember that I want it to happen. I'd appreciate credit for the idea, though.

    Great idea. Exactly a project I've been looking to do. I'll get on it ASAP. :)
    Oh and just FYI the default key binding will be V (easy to reach with left hand using the WASD layout) and will be changeable using the Spoutcraft plugin key bindings changer.
    This is the plugin key binding changer within Spoutcraft:

    I wasn't expecting the first post to be what you posted. Wow, thanks! I'd like credit for the idea, but that's all you really need to do about me. I can give you some PNG images of templates for the different dialogs if you'd like a general idea of how to design it. Are you thinking of adding support for shop plugins that tie into the economy plugins as well? If so, which ones?

    I'm not familiar with many shop plugins, but hopefully we will have support if possible.
    I also had an idea of a trading system that would work similar to Valve's system.
    I didn't get very far on development yesterday, because there's a weird graphical bug with lists..

    Dang bugs! Trading would be interesting, but I think that would work better in a separate plugin that acts as an extension to this one. My main priorities are Essentials Economy, BOSEconomy and iConomy support for paying money, checking balance, and possibly using bank accounts, and (if possible) have it tie in with shop plugins. For example, when walking into a shop region, a notice comes in the lower screen like "Press V!" with a picture of a chest, and it has a list with pictures of all the items, and two columns, saying BUY and SELL. In those columns are buttons, and the button text is the price for buying or selling. To the right of that will be a textbox with up/down buttons for selecting the amount, and both textboxes check what number you've set in that box to determine how much to buy/sell. If you'd like a picture, I can make a template.

    Turns out it's a Spout bug, not my bug :(
    That means we'll have to wait a while. I believe @narrowtux fixed it, but it won't be 'fixed' until the next Spout release.
    As for the economies, it currently supports the following:
    iConomy 4, 5, & 6, BOSEconomy 6 & 7, EssentialsEcon, 3Co, and MultiConomy.

    What bug exactly? I didn't quite understand what which bug you quoted :D

    EDIT: Ah, that bug you told me in IRC :D I didn't fix it yet, but likely in the next Spout release, yes.
