Ratings on Created maps

I think it would be grand to have ratings on the Merlin Created maps. You could just fetch the rating for the individual suggestions on the map selection page and then prompt users to rate the map (i.e. the suggestion) on the game page.

(Created also doesn't have a game category in the suggestion creation dropdown menu, or I just can't see it)

Being able to order by rating rather than score would also be astounding.

you can rate the map by rating the associate suggestion - you're right though I need to make that clearer and show the ratings next to maps and allow sort by etc

Oh wow, I'm really looking forward to seeing how the new features on Created will turn out!

I played MR for the first time well over 10 years ago, and still keep coming back and finding it ever more interesting! A masterpiece, at the very least. :D

I wonder, what are your highest priorities regarding MR currently? What will happen to MR4? Scoring/speedrun modes?

My highest priorities are (in no particular order)
- Enabling maps to be created and edited from the website
- Enabling enemies, cut-scenes and quests (maps and cut-scenes strung together) to be created from the website
- Building in social stuff to the game eg when you die, your ghost haunts the screen and helps other players who come to the same screen until someone clears it. I like the idea of "collaborative single player". Speedruns fit in here.
- Rewriting the game engine in something else besides shockwave (or at least buying the latest version of Director and re-compiling). I would really like to expand the screen so the pixels are bigger and/or the play area is bigger.

MR4 is sort of already nearly done - note has added enough to stuff to the game engine and Air_O2 has already provided a very good candidate for the map. All I need to do is take some time out to put my own spin on it. I'll get to it at some point no doubt.

I think I could take writing better descriptions for TMB Robot 033 and fleshing out the rest of my maps for Created as my highest priorities, then.

But that'll have to wait until I've finished my market analysis and read some more law stuff. Running a business will probably turn out to be kinda fun (you get money and all), but preparing it is surprisingly time-consuming. Or maybe it's just Parkinson's Law all over again.

What business are you going into if it's ok to talk about it?
