Worked on main menu + spawnmenu today

The new UI system is in a position where I can start using it for stuff properly. The last couple of days I’ve been cleaning up the project a bit and started doing some broad strokes on stuff.

Part of that was trying out a spawnmenu…

And another part was adding a game screen…

Like I said, this is all just broad strokes… testing that specific things work (like being able to click on buttons, background drawing etc).

i really like how you can find a random server like that, i hope this stays maybe with a few filters like player numbers etc

I would love to see some code snippets as well or maybe just make the code public on Facepunch · GitHub

@garry Would that menu scale down and be attached to a hand for example in VR?

Edit: That menu meaning the spawn menu

Wait, so there are chances we will have auto server search when we choose a game mode ( like in GTA Online, Pubg, CSGO, etc… ) while also having an option for server listing?

The way it’s going now, I imagine there’s two game lists:

  1. List of games, click one - either create a game or join one via matchmaking
  2. Communities - which are single or groups of dedicated servers

That’d be great, it’s just sad to see how communities with a bunch of different and unique gamemodes die in gmod because all of their servers are split into different gamemodes

Will they be hosted on the creator’s computer like in gmod right now? They should not be public by default because I see a lot of kids making servers without realizing and people joining making their little computers blow up.

Yeah they’re listen servers - yeah they’ll be public by default

Can’t wait to join unsuspecting kids in their sandbox server with a creepy username and private profile to make them think it’s the ghost of S&box.
