  1. Add map caching

    Downloading the same large map file(more than 500k or maybe 1mb)again and again its preety anoying....how about a map recognising metod??,so you dont have to download the same map twice (maybe comparing the dimensions and the size of the local maps with the host map,so it doesnt matter the name of the file)

    • Re-add ranks and secure logins to WormNET

      Ranks and secure logins should be made to work again, but anonymous logins should be preserved.

        Ranks and secure logins are part of 4.0’s WormNET design. However, I don’t see strong reasons (and lots of counter-reasons) to keep anonymous logins in 4.0. Also, how the ranks, experience etc. are calculated remains an open and very complicated question.

      • Add more Spectator slots for hosted games

        Extra slots should be configurable by the host. This would allow more than (7 - # of Teams) people to be in a game that, for some reason, many people would like to spectate it live (either to look or chat). Examples: popular tournament finals, clan matches with lots of members present from the duelling clans, playoff matches for leagues, matches between clan members with many members online, etc.

          It would be much easier to do this outside W:A, kind-of-like a retranslation bot. That would resolve all the UI design and protocol issues. Would that work as a compromise?

        • Play against the computer in...

          A possibility that wouldn't be bad for me: play in WormNET and LAN mode, not only with human players, with the computer as an additional team would be great.

          That feature would be fantastic in normal- Intermediate games.

          Sometimes, I play WA in a LAN connection with a family member. And we were talking about how we would like to have this feature in our games.

          • Add Live Streaming feature from game's level

            There is simillar idea posted here http://feedback.worms2d.info/forums/5998-worms-armageddon/suggestions/1598719-spectate-already-started-games?ref=title its just very unclear.

            One of the best promotion for the game is possibility to watch replays, fan made movies and ability to spectate live games which is, at this moment only possible with external software/sites that arent known for everyone, especialy new players. There should be unique and easy feature for WormNet 4.0 design that allows players to watch choosen matches directly from the game's level. Host should be able to enable live streaming from the lobby menu ingame to put in on the Live Streaming list somewhere on WormNet. Overall design…

            • being able to remove joins/quits of #AG

              It's still annoying to see a huge list of joins or quits, especially when you talk with someone.

              • Enhance team-play

                Team members should be able to let Spectators participate in team-chat while in a game. Could a chat command do this? So it can be toggled in-game.
                Also, a player should be able to let Spectators see their current weapons panel when it's their turn.

                • Have the "quit the game" option quit WA.

                  Have the "quit the game" option in online matches quit WA. This could discourage ppl from quitting games, unless they really do have to go, in wich case they'd need to quit WA anyway. Also, for the host, there should stay an option to just quit that game, and not WA, since the host may have valid reasons to quit a game, like ie: ppl dropping, desyncing, quitting, having loaded a wrong scheme, or generally all players decide to start a new match.

                    • Custom host lobby message

                      What would be pretty awesome I think though not a huge endeavor to implement is the ability for a host to display a custom message in the hosting lobby, something that could be 'Welcome to my shopper game, rules are ABL CBA AFR' or an explanation of a not so regularly played scheme, or even an away message like 'the host is gone taking a wee while players join up'. Here's the way I'd implement it: Have the ability to save it in the scheme file, while being able to override the saved message with a lobby command like /msg…

                      • Worms recognize HostingBuddy commands even when the game is hosted by user

                        A friend of mine and I had problems connecting to games hosted normally, so for a long time we used HostingBuddy. Nowadays we are able to host games and connect to each other in the normal way, but I really miss the handy commands that hostingbuddy understood, such as !wmbd xxxx and !wsdb yyy (and many more).
                        Is it possible to make worms understand these commands even when the game is hosted the normal way?

                                  • Improved netplay for better matchmaking experience

                                    Usually when we play on wormnet or local and one of the players get disconnected or desync appears due bad connection which one of those happens for many reasons, then this player can't join back to the game, this is not good.

                                    I have several ideas.
                                    1. Better synchronization of the netplay code, also when one of the players gets dropped game automatically to pause up for some amount of time which host defined to give opportunity to the player to rejoin again.
                                    2. If player do not get back after that period of time, then cpu takes his place. …

                                    • Detecting afk players

                                      Automatically skipping the turns of a player (and next turns) if he doesn't show activity after ~60 seconds, especially good for warmer when a player goes away without typing /afk command

                                      • Ability to see number of players inside lobby

                                        would be nice if you could see how many players are in a game when you are in lobby

                                        • Log Player Info

                                          Add the ability to make locally stored comments about other players, which will be displayed upon request or automatically when the player enters a game with you.

                                          Storing comments:
                                          /playerA Good player
                                          /playerB Insulted everyone the whole game and quit when he started losing

                                          Loading comments:
                                          /info playerA [returns previously added comment]
                                          /info all [returns existing comments for everyone in the game]

                                          1 comment should be sufficient, but you should be able to overwrite old comments.

                                          The idea comes from WC3Banlist, which is a 3rd party app that ties into WarCraft 3. Enough people got fed up with people leaving…
