Thread: Server uptime in game browser

    Server uptime in game browser

    Hardly no one changes the "looking for players" indicator which makes it hard to determine if you could catch a game before it started. Showing how long a server has been open could be an additional good indicator to if you would likely be able to join before the game began.

    I kinda like that idea but one problem is what if they finished a game and are playing another? The real problem here is players not activating/deactivating the "looking for players" toggle correctly.

    Therefore, I think a better solution to the problem would be exposing access to the "looking for players" toggle in scripting. That would let a mod automatically set the "looking for players" to false once you've clicked some sort of "start game" or "set-up" button, and you could have it set "looking for players" to true once the mod is re-loaded in.

    Oh wait! Turns out that's already in there! Players/mod makers just need to start using that in their mods!

    the only way this ever gonna get used, is if it's placed in top right corner with the current players, as a toggle button "Looking for players ON"/"Looking for players OFF"

    no one want's to go through 10 submenus to toggle it

    I do like that suggestion actually. BTW you can build that currently with the Custom UI but it should be a default UI element so that players actually notice it and think about it.
