Ideas for soundbanks:

Game can inform by small icon next to each player if its soundbank exist or not and will be used default one instead. It maybe speaker icon with green color if soundbank exist, red icon if not (will be used default one instead), and maybe yellow if soundbank is being downloading (if game start before fished this, it use default one). When pointing on that icon by mouse, it may show soundbank name, files size, and if downloading, show its progress in %. Downloaded soundbanks may have own folder (User\DownloadedSpeech\*soundbank_name*). In game settings add option for downloading missing soundbanks from players (on/off), so when its off, it will only inform about missing soundbank, but not downloading.

Optional: Comparing soundbanks contents by file sizes for make difference if different soundbanks have same name. If same named soundbank with different files downloaded, save it with [1] prefix on end or so.

And mainly, game may look for soundbank in BOTH folders: User\Speech, and DATA\User\Speech (in this order). Oh, in User\DownloadedSpeech\ too ofc.

Not exactly for the game itself, and not sure if people already suggested this, but it would be cool to have an app that you could download on PlayStore or AppStore that could read .WAgame (replay) files on your smartphone. This way you wouldn't need to have a computer with WA installed to watch the replay. Also, you wouldn't need to make videos or gifs to be able to reproduce what happened on your smartphone. I would install this app for sure. Maybe the name could be "WA Replay Spectator", "WA Replay Executer", "WA Replay Runner", "WA Replay Watcher", or something.

Replays need all the game's features in order to work. Remember, a replay is just made of map, settings/teams and keyboard presses/holds. By making such a player, you better leave the whole game playable!

EDIT: A server-based solution could export videos!

Would that page really need a lot of updates after suggestion by suggestion? I think it has been last updated since last year.

To this date, this page has received 12527 views. That has to count to something.

Deadcode, and team, do they ever visit this topic? Do we know? If they do, what do they think? Do they for example think ''That's a good Idea'', or ''That's a bad Idea'' or ''That can't be done''. Based on what they see, do they make a list? Do they talk about it? That article on worms2d listed by Charles, may not be entirely accurate, and representative of the whole picture.

Regardless, this is a good topic for the community as a whole. I am also sure a lot of these things mentioned here, Included my own, will not make it to any updates. But it's still a Innocent notion to participate.

95% ideas here are good ideas. What they will include in the update is surely stricte connected with how easy/hard it is to implement into the game.

You had a good idea, Kradie, with increasing the font size in the chatbox.

I'm so happy as this topic got a LOT of attention and ideas!

Still...I discovered on the directory of WA some unused sprites/weapons that where used on Worms 2:
-Homing Cluster Bomb
-Homing Air Strike
-Cloned Sheep
-Gas Canister

That will be nice if someone manage to bring back those weapons!

P.S.:If someone already mentioned this idea, then accept my apologies.

Project X: Weapons from Project X are integrated into the main WA arsenal. No PX addon required
Oh, don't forget the rain mod from Project X witch it will make the terrain slippery and the custom barrels from PX as well.
I've also exported some sprites from Project X weapons as well.
