free .vars-lines list

All user-specific mod-data should be stored in the .vars-files, correct?

So it would be great to have a list in which we can see which lines are used by other mods.
Lets add something like that maybe here as important topic. So anybody who wants to write a mod can see which lines a free.

good idea Smiley

Suggestion for mod writers: add a mod-specific prefix to all lines. Keep the prefix small to save space, but also big enough to be unique for your mod.

Lines added by Extended Profiles mod:

ext_0
ext_1
ext_2
ext_...

depending on how many fields you added.

Just a matter of agreement how to mark mod vars.
I could think of the first three letters of your id here so in my case it could look like:
spi_userlenght
spi_shoesize
spi_weight

etc...

Or just give every coder a three letter id for variables Wink

Not really a _real_ .vars line, but here it is anyway.

Board Index User Cache
userwasloadedfromcache - a special variable that allows my BIUC mod to check if a user was loaded from the cache file. It's not actually stored in the .vars file. If this is true, then only the minimal amount of data was loaded for the user.
  

For my mods, check out my public notes.

You might be interested in my projects, or my forum, the Flying Kirby Pub.
