Suggestion Title (What are you Suggesting):
I have a few suggestions,
A- allow two rtd’s per round, with a cooldown time of maybe 2 minutes?
B- remove f1 crafting menu, too many keys and barley anu chests + nobody even knows about them, maybe it helps in the lag spikes somehow, not an expert tho
C- adding a popup menu with the rules so newbies read the rules before playing
D- adding small custom emojis like knuckles, pewdiepie....etc, players could submit ones on discord or smth to be reviewe by admins and devolopers before being added
E- adding a weekly contest menu in the place of deathrun news in the f1 menu
How / why would it benefit the Deathrun server:
A- some maps are too hard and a second rtd would help, maps like erosticher, dust are really hard for some.
B- it might lessen the lag, not sure
C- it might lessen rule breakers, lots of people ignore auto messages in chat so they dont read rules
D- it would make chatting more fun
E- getting rid of useless menu and make people interact in the server more
A- really rare but a person could exploit with a double slap or whips, again with the randomization it would be very rare
D-some might sneak inappropriate/ racist emotes/emojis, but i doubt it
E- if no coding errors happen in the contenst entery/menu then there are none
I wouldnt mind ignoring them but A and D and E would really be a great addon
I know I discussed these with you privately over Discord but for the sake of visibility to the rest of the community here's what's happening with these suggestions:
a) Allowing players to use RTD twice is simple to implement however, in practice it would not be viable when you consider that RTD can actually kill you thus ending your round. No point in having the ability to use it twice in the small chance you get something decent the first time.
b) The keys and chests feature is being removed in the next big update.
c) I'm still deliberating over an auto-popup for new joiners or whether we could use something subtler. I have this as low-priority on my backlog regardless.
d) We're not going to be implementing custom emojis.
e) Weekly contest/objectives requires more analysis. I need to flesh out the requirements more to further my understand but also to compare it to the existing achievements and whether or not we can work to improve them or start fresh. Like suggestion C, I have this on my backlog to review in the future once we have higher priority work completed.
If you any further questions, concerns or suggestions cross your mind you can get in touch with me on Steam or Discord.
There were emojies in the chat before, I would like to see them back.
I have to say this every time someone suggests something like this but. Its not possible to do images in the chat without a custom chat box. We had a custom chatbox at one point but it was hated with a passion I have not since seen so it will never happen.
