    Hey! welcome to my first suggestion for the Hive
    Idea:
    Detailed Deathrun checkpoint times.

    More info:
    After a pretty fun conversation in the Hive discord channel I came up with the idea to have advanced checkpoints.
    It seemed like a good idea so after a bit of thinking this is what I came up with

    When u start a run on a certain map in this example Sonic.
    You ran through checkpoints normally this only gives a chat message with how many tokens you've gained from surpassing it.

    So my suggestion is that when surpassing a checkpoint a chat message & a timer will show up saying how much u are ahead or behind your personal best on the map that you are playing.

    This will look like this:
    [​IMG]
    If you are ahead of your PB on a certain map

    [​IMG]
    and If you are behind your pb on a certain map.

    This was my suggestion for Deathrun
    If you have any improvements or anything else to say please let me know!

    Heya,
    A nice idea! For those who want to beat records/compare against their past selves, it's ideal! Having said that, what would be shown would start from scratch (so no past games would count to this).
    Moved to public discussion.

    I could definitely see this being implemented, it sounds like a dream come true for speedrunners!

    Don't see this as a top priority suggestion right now- it's nothing too big! However, I do think it would make people challenge themselves a bit more in the game and maybe help them realize what they are doing wrong on certain maps, why they aren't improving.
    Overall a nice quality of life improvement!

    Maybe this feature could be toggled on or off?

    The only downside to this suggestion is that at launch no one will be able to compare to current PBs/old times since they'd have to get a new PB for each section and each map. Would definitely make for better benchmarks in the speedrunning community though - we'd be able to compare with WR's (or close) times.

    One change I would make is the displaying of time difference: I'd rather see only the number next or above the "current time" timer; instead of "+/- 0.125s ahead/behind".

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it's possible for text to be displayed in the way you're suggesting. Regardless, it would be cool to see this added if the speedrunning community thinks it would be useful!
