View Recently joined servers

Post by btroyer2011 »

I thought i would suggest a place players can go in "browse public servers" and view the recent servers you have join and whether the server is still online or not and stuff like that....
I like to jump into random servers and help but when i want to log back into the server later and i forget the name, its hard to find it again..

Thoughts?

Recent played servers

Post by skelgaard »

In multiplayer, it can sometimes be hard to find back to the servers you played last time, so a recent played servers area in the list or column to filter by would be a great addition to the game and make ppl go back to the servers where you already where a part of before.

Show last 5 Server played in Multiplayer.

Post by Zonk »

TL;DR
Add a overview about the last servers i joined online.

What ?
I suggest a ading a small overview on browsig public games to show the last servers i joined.

Heres a picture of how i think it coul look like:
last games.jpg
last games.jpg (105.32 KiB) Viewed 1437 times
Somehow self explanatory. Show the name of last 3 to 5 Servers i joined. If possible it may be greatly enchancing multiplayerexpirience if it also show if the Server is actually online and on which version!

Why ?
Same story old long: Friday evening, some beers, some fun, a new game fresh from scratch starting at time played <10 minute.
After a night long play with new friends like "supper buddy i dont know" or "super pro i would like to play again with" and especially "my future factoriowife she just doesnt know it yet" the clock hits 5:30 in the morning and i hit my bed. Dreaming of the new awesome factory iam going to finnish of together with my future factoriowife on that nice server that implemented a new feature i liked much.

10 hours later its time to finaly finish that prepared outpost but wait what server did i play at last night?

Was it Redmeat? No this server was to far ahead.

Or that danish server? Yes i joined that server but i left becasue starting area was surrounded by water.

Maybe it was Pro Elite Noobs? No it wasnt that either.

Hey thats it German Kamikatze. Damm no i instantly left that server as i saw that micro ore patches.

Joining all 15 Server which could fit because of uptime and none is the right one. Is my new server offline? Did they update? May my client updatet through steam while i was making coffe? Will i ever meet "my future factoriowife she just doesnt know it yet" again?

Entertaining xD

But seriously having a list of recent or favourite servers would be cool, I wouldn't use it so much for the server list thing cause I rarely play there but I have a number of Direct connect servers and having the IPs and passwords already entered would be cool.... I'm thinking like Minecraft can do this in their MP server lists, your saved servers appear and they also self organise into most recently connected, I also think it's practically endless not limited to 5. Maybe a check box "Show My Servers first" thing rather than simply alpha numeric or age.

"Recent servers" list for multiplayer

Post by Honktown »

It can be awkward finding a game one recently played if it's not one of the big soft-mod / scenario / clan-style servers. A side box with recent server names, and if possible, recorded address would be sufficient: record the last 5 or so connections, and then click one, and it tries to connect and show the information in the right-side panel (description, currently playing, etc).

Edit: thank you for the merge, sorry I didn't see the other thread first.
