I was thinking about the friend system on this site and I feel like I don’t have really a good use for it.
I thought it would be kind of fun to introduce some kind of “cooperative programming” - where you could invite a friend to:
a) work together on single unit - could be great for the bot programming competition - every member would code a part (module) of a bot - for example member 1 is driver and member 2 is shooter - totally independent. This would be for limited amount of people.
b) work together on distributed units - every member codes own unit - let’s say a hero and in testing phase everyone joins together to:
b.1) Compete against another team of same size - PvP - Limited amount of people
b.2) Work together to reach an objective - PvE - Limited amount of people OR if scaling difficulty is possibule unlimited amount of people - I was imagining some RPG-styled challenges
