The favorite servers list

Post by Mopar Madness » Sun May 08, 2011 9:34 pm

My server list was taking a while coming up today and it got me thinking. For the times when the serverlist isn't working, it would be nice if people's lists of favorite servers could show up all the time, whether they show up on the server list or not. Have the servers be in white if they're found on the server list and grey if they're not.

Or just find a way to keep the list server running, since we kinda need that for authentication too.

There already is a favourites list.
When you add a server to your favourites, it appears as orange instead of white.
You then choose between which list to be shown by pressing "f".

It would be a nice addition however, if these favourites always appeared on top and were shown, even when not in the server list.

I know about that list, what I'm suggesting is that that list stay up all the time even if a server on that list shuts down or the global server list goes down. When the global's down, you can still connect to servers if you remember the ip. The favorites would show up in orange when they're found on the global, and be grayed out when they are not is what I'm suggesting.

the list in v3. has much of what you are asking for. It was all part of the last summer of code we did.
