  1. User missions

    This obviously already exists in the worms coding, otherwise there wouldn't be official missions. What would be great now is giving us the option to create missions like those. Besides the fun of it, imagine that it could be great as a teaching tool.
    Consider making it possible to use .png files.

    • Customisable points-for-weapons scheme

      Very similar to the WWP mode, just more customisable.
      The biggest theoretical problem I've seen with this is the difficulty of creating a well balanced scheme. The best solution I can think of is to let players edit this scheme in the same way we edit any other scheme, with the addition of being able to change how much each weapon costs and how many "coins" are available.
      In this way we wouldn't have to wait until a new beta update in order to play with a different "points for weapons" scheme. Or there could be leagues with a different…

        • See who is playing games

          I dont know if it is already commented, but i couldnt find it.

          The idea is that when someone joins a game instead of dissapear from the WormNet list, it could say something like "Playing" next to his name, so u can see if ur friends are there, and it could be good if u could send a private messege to him while he is playing...

            This will make more sense when in-progress games will be joinable, which will be the case in 4.0 (players would join as spectators until the end of the match). The suggestion can be done as it is now, but I think it would put too much stress on the current design of the WormNET server, so if this will ever come before 4.0, it will surely come after the new WormNET server supporting flags/ranks.

          • Add health crates with random amounts

            The current settings for health crate amounts range from 0 to 255. I suggest that the setting for 0 be changed to random, which would be from 1hp up to half of the worm's starting hp (e.g 1 to 50).

            • booby-trapped crates

              Simple, just like Worms1 and Worms2, crates that explode when an misadvised worm step over it.

              • Let worms access the web

                Worms has a little support for HTML (or WAML if u will). So why not add an address bar and a home page feature.

                I know the whole; let's build a plugin to turn the web into something worms can deal with is out of the question. But there's no reason people can't make a website that holds League stats and news on updates.

                There is a real possibility for improvement by allowing worms to intergrate into webpages. Obviously a few more things might be useful like some way to have a useful log sent to a site as a…

                • 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.

                  • Make Invisibility more customisable

                    Invisibility is almost never used in W:A, probably because it's too limited.
                    It should be able to last regardless weapon usage. The number of turns -or even round time- it lasts should be configurable.
                    A scheme option should set whether players are able to see invisible team members or not.
                    Another option could be to let weapons disable opponent invisibility once an invisible worm gets hit.
                    Perhaps this way invisibility becomes worthy or fun to be used in games.

                      Instead of making it configurable in every conceivable way, how about we agree on some options which would be useful the most? Everyone seems to agree that having the screen follow invisible worms can be bad… what else?

                    • 2v2 Anti-quitter system

                      when u play a 2v2 game, sometimes one of the players quit the game,desync or disconnects form the host.So, how about letting his teammate control his team??

                      • Add volume control for music

                        The volume control in a game acts for both music and sound fx. But the sound fx are a bit louder then the music, which is annoying at times when you just want to listen to the music (which is really great btw).

                        Would it be possible to add volume control for just the music inside the game? Kind of like having 2 volume bars, one for sound fx and the other for the music.

                        • 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?

                                I am changing my stance on this idea… when we switch to OpenGL/true color, adding some simple (optional) additional effects using OpenGL could be possible.

                              • more efficient menu layout

                                Allow to choose a map from User/SavedLevels directly from the menu before the game (without going into the map editor and loading the map)

                                • Add weapon power settings to in-game weapon panel

                                  Sometimes it's not easy to memorize your host's weird weapon power preferences. It would be useful if these settings could be seen in-game too, not only in the lobby.

                                  Addiotionally, maybe instead of showing the "star-power", the amount of maximum damage could be displayed (or one projectile's damage for multi-projectile weapons like cluster, air strike, etc.)

                                    Damage doesn’t mean anything for some weapons… and most of the time the maximum theoretical damage (considering the RNG may generate any sequence of numbers) isn’t anywhere near the maximum practical damage.

                                    Also, I’d like to see an idea / concept design of how would power levels would be displayed.

                                    Update: this idea should be mostly obsoleted by our plans for 4.0 to allow viewing the scheme settings during the game, and the scheme comparator in the game lobby.

                                  • Add rope knocking scheme option

                                    Instead of always having to leave AG and join PT just to play a game like Elite, perhaps allowing rope knocking as a scheme option would help.

                                    • "Remove wind" scheme option

                                      For a game like Time Trial Rope Race, removing wind would help eliminate the only luck factor in the scheme.

                                          I’m not sure Team17 will let us to just add stuff from the other games, but we can look into implementing custom landscapes, and make those file formats importable.

                                            I don’t feel that adding hard-coded gameplay mechanics elements, such as weapons, is part of our goal. This might happen when support for custom weapons (a-la Fiddler) will be added.
