Title: INFO: How to create a clan / Clan Tutorial (SFE)
Post by: DarkStorm on July 25, 2007, 08:15:30 pm
Creating a Clan
Savage clans are created directly in the game through console commands. If you have a new clan you want to make and then advertise here for recruiting, here's the quick step process to get your community rolling:

1. Join a server in your Savage game.
2. Type "/createclan <abbreviation> <full clan name>". The abbreviation may be up 7 characters and may include colour codes (http://www.newerth.com/smf/index.php/topic,1562.msg26546.html#msg26546), the full clan name may consist of up to 24 characters. If you use more chars than the limit allows, the abbreviation/clan name will be truncated to match the limit.
3. Once your clan is created (which happens in about a second), you can then upload any graphic from your computer as an icon for it. To do this, type "/newicon c:/<path to your graphic file>". The size the graphic will appear at in the game depends on the players' screen resolutions, but will rarely be above 32x32 pixels; so it's best to resize your image to this size using such programs like IrfanView (http://www.irfanviewpack.com/).
Allowed image file formats are PNG, GIF, JPG/JPEG, TIF and BMP; however, once the image is uploaded it'll be converted to PNG format, so it's best to use PNG right away to prevent any quality loss. You can convert an image file using free programs such as Easy Graphic Converter (http://www.etrusoft.com/graphic-converter/).
Also, the image file size may not exceed 16 KB.
4. Invite anyone to your clan that wants to join by simply typing "/invite <their name>".

In addition to the in game clan management, many of the more distinguished clans have their own websites and/or forums to help keep in contact with all of their members. If you have the means to do so, it's highly recommended to make a simple website for your clan. There are even websites where you can download all the html code necessary for a forum and even set up a host for your website, such as phpBB (http://www.phpbb.com/).

Joining a Clan
In case you didn't know, all of the icons that you see in Savage next to player's names are actually clans. If you see a clan that you want to join, you can simply ask a person with the icon you like to invite you. However, only Founders and Administrators of clans can invite, not all players in the clan have this rank. If they invite you, the command that you type to join is "/joinclan <their clan tag>". The clan tag appears to the left of the icon in their name when you're looking at the scoreboard and is usually 1-3 letters.

Closing Notes
If something won't work (esp. if ppl can't join your clan even though you invited them), make sure that all participants are using the newest SFE version (http://www.notforidiots.com/SFE).

For a list of all available commands regarding clan management, type "/clancommands".

The only spammer here is you; and if you don't stop, we won't lock the thread, but lock you :x

Btw, I'll correct DarkStorm's information in a second.

Hi.
I have a problem of making a clan.
I made all the steps as you wrote in your topic, but after i do /creatclan <shortcut of clan name> <full clan name>
i dont get anything, like nothing happends?,if you can help me, please tell me where iam wrong .

/creatclan <shortcut of clan name> <full clan name>

First off. you didn't spell the command properally. It's "/createclan" not "/creatclan".

If that doesn't fix the problem, then all I can say is the SFE authentication server has been acting up the past couple of weeks and certain clan commands have bugged. If this is the case for the "/createclan" command as well, then unfortunately you will have to wait until the release of XR with the brand new authentication server before you can make your clan.

When I try to create a clan the console says, "error:command '/createclan' not recognized" . I also can't use the ^ symbol for colors. The console reads it as a space for some reason.

Might be because the authentication server is down

Post by: hell' on May 14, 2008, 10:14:42 am
maybe the abbreviation is too long - a colour code counts as 4 letters

e.g. ^856Warlord is too long

Dumb question: I reinstalled my OS, and after re-installing Savage (and SFE too) i just got in game with my mere alias but with no clan.
Must I have to wait for a clan admin to invite me again or is there a way to sort it out by myself (I was not the founder/an admin)?
I miss my /linuX/ tag  :cry:

Post by: Tux on December 25, 2008, 10:01:22 pm

Need more detail!

did you read the tutorial? it covers all the aspects you need to create / join a clan...

and if you really have some question - i'd suggest you clearly post them here, not just a random "need more detail!"

You don't use the < or > marks.
They're just used here to show how to divide up the command.

Clantags sometimes disappear when the server hasn't been restarted for a while. It's a bug :)

another happy customer

here's an idea people with access to the source, if the first character of whatever is passed to the console is '/', why not pretend it's not there?

only do it once of course, // says hi

IT'S MY CLAN LOLZ!

There was something i could not understand and we started to share that clan with that Acen2 dude. he changed it's icon, then i did and it was a real "clan-war" to take control, i've never seen him ingame aswell!
 I dunno what happened but i'm really curious about an explanation
