Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

A Search Bar For Worlds (EEU?)

So I know someone suggested that worlds could be shown in the lobby whether they have players or not, and many people disagreed. Here's another idea, though. I'd like a place with a search bar, to search for a world. This would be good, because sometimes you want to find an old world, but didn't favorite it, and don't remember who it was made by. Or perhaps, you do know who it was played by but don't know what it was called.

Again, EE is dead, and EEU is coming soon. So, at this point it's probably be better to think about any and all suggestions for EEU instead.

No
There can be multiple worlds with the same or a similar name
If you search for "Edit code 1234" or "Untitled world" you will nuke your computer because of the amount of worlds that the lobby has to display. And nuke the servers along the way because they will have to index through millions of worlds doing a name comparison for each of them and then return a fraction of these

Re: A Search Bar For Worlds (EEU?)

it's not possible to do with current version of ee, unless you know the exact name of a world (then you can get the world using bot)

Pretty much all suggestions that I make at least, are aimed more toward EEU than EE. EE should just be considered complete at this point.

Not necessarily true unless all of those worlds are stored on your computer somewhere, which would be ridiculous. Does google freeze up your computer whenever you search for something on the internet?

You're trying to compare Google servers to EE/PIO servers. Please reconsider. Also Google displays X results per page, not all of them in a single page

I didn't say that ALL the worlds in ee should be made on a single page, did I? Also though, it wouldn't freeze anything. It's no more complicated than searching for a file throughout your computer.

Re: A Search Bar For Worlds (EEU?)

EE is about to shut down in the future, and you'll probably be able to favorite worlds in EEU by its launch. This isn't really needed.

Also, I almost never remember the names of worlds. I'll only recognize them if I see them in my favorites list. So the search bar would be completely useless for me.

Re: A Search Bar For Worlds (EEU?)

I agree that there should be a public database to look for worlds, with options to sort by likes/favs, and whatever. Filter by name, likes, etc. This would make people stay longer in the game because they can discover new worlds if the worlds currently in lobby are deemed boring by the user.

Then the worlds will be split to 10 per page or whatever you set. Geometry Dash has 40 million levels and doesn't crash if you search for something
