Script to Announce Logins and Logouts for Eluna

by Valkryst

Because so many people have requested a script to announce logins and logouts over the years, and due to a lack of simple scripts that I could find, I've written up a very simple script that announces whenever a player logs on or off. I'll assume that anyone looking at this already knows how to add a Lua script to their server, so here's the script.

    
        local function OnEnterWorld(event, player)
        	local isHorde = player:IsHorde()
        	local playerName = player:GetName()

        	if(player:IsGM()) then
        		SendWorldMessage("|Hplayer:" .. playerName .. ":1:WHISPER:" .. string.upper(playerName) .. "|h[" .. playerName .. " - GM]|h has logged in.")
        	elseif(isHorde == true) then
        		SendWorldMessage("|Hplayer:" .. playerName .. ":1:WHISPER:" .. string.upper(playerName) .. "|h[" .. playerName .. " - Horde]|h has logged in.")
        	elseif(isHorde == false) then
        		SendWorldMessage("|Hplayer:" .. playerName .. ":1:WHISPER:" .. string.upper(playerName) .. "|h[" .. playerName .. " - Alliance]|h has logged in.")
        	end
        end

        local function OnExitWorld(event, player)
        	local isHorde = player:IsHorde()
        	local playerName = player:GetName()

        	if(player:IsGM()) then
        		SendWorldMessage("[" .. playerName .. " - GM] has logged out." )
        	elseif(isHorde == true) then
        		SendWorldMessage("[" .. playerName .. " - Horde] has logged out." )
        	elseif(isHorde == false) then
        		SendWorldMessage("[" .. playerName .. " - Alliance] has logged out." )
        	end
        end

        RegisterPlayerEvent(3, OnEnterWorld)
        RegisterPlayerEvent(4, OnExitWorld)
    

There is definitely some room for improvement on the script, so if you have any suggestions, just leave a comment below.
