Re: Trucks build structure modules more easily in trunk vers

Welcome to the game of Warzone Josh, pretty soon you won't be a newbie anymore! :P

Re: Improvments for the research UI

Note that the AI already works with research goals, not individual research items. So the plumbing code for this is already there. However, if we were to have a GUI for this, I'd definitely like to be able to set a goal for each research lab. That retains some essential flexibility. If you need to ...

Re: Improvments for the research UI

3) When the research menu is open and a research completes often a new topic is inserted into the menu. That causes other icons to shift around and it is easy to click on the wrong thing. Maybe new topics should always be inserted at the end of the list or only when the menu is reopened. Not really...

Re: Map Selection Screen Makeover

I agree on all points. Good idea KenAlcock Same. Also adding room for more overall maps since currently It can't take all the maps I have. Hey Daltx. I missed the point of this post the first time I read it--I get it now. Since I'm not at the limit yet, can you tell me how many maps Warzone is curr...

Re: Contribution feedback system

You're going to have to explain why you can't approve of it. Like I said, Warzone Project decisions aren't driven solely by votes. First, it is exclusionary and elitist. It basically tells everyone who isn't selected to rate contributions that their input is neither welcome nor worth welcoming. Thi...

Re: Map Selection Screen Makeover

Opps, I went with frequent as opposed to recent. I'll add the recent idea as well though, which would be useful when you join multiplayer with some new map and then forget what it was named.

Re: Map Selection Screen Makeover

Oh, and I completely forgot to add my single largest pet peeve. When you host a multiplayer game and choose a map, that map is saved and will be the default map the next time you host a multiplayer game. But the same behavior does not apply to skirmish games, which is quite annoying. I'll add this t...

Re: Map Selection Screen Makeover

I say get rid of the unfiltered list. Usually, if you are looking for a map, you know how many players you want that map to accomodate.

Re: Map Selection Screen Makeover

Sorry, I don't have a scanner where I'm at. But to visualize, just look at the Limits screen image I posted above and pretend each row is one map name. The page buttons would go across the top. The Favorite Maps page could be a page button set all the way in the upper right corner (where the other m...

Map Selection Screen Makeover

For the life of me, I cannot determine how Warzone sorts the maps in Map Selection Screen. And once you get a few pages of maps downloaded to your maps folder, it can become quite the task to find one of them. Also longer names get truncated. So let's look at the Map Selection screen here. MapSelect...

Re: I want to download the manual to my hard disk

I personally use Mozilla Firefox combined with a kick-@$$ add-on named Scrapbook Plus. I end up with the whole guide on my local hard drive with all links in-tact.

Re: Hosting games

When hosting a server, why does my server randomly disappear from the lobby? (reported many times by participants) I see this a lot too. Not only as host but as a player when others host. What I do when I host is keep a browser open to the Warzone Lobby Server Web Page and if my game is not listed,...
