[SUGGESTION] A codex that provides info on gametypes, backstory, etc.

#1
This was mostly Will's idea that got buried in another thread I started. Basically, there should be a codex that's accessible through the main menu that can be used to describe the weapons, the gametypes, setting, maybe some backstory, etc.

This would be cool. For the weapons, various statistics could be displayed, like the stuff in Morfar's weapon comparison table somewhere here (I don't remember where it is exactly).

Yes, this is a good idea. Although, this information should appear at first in the wiki.

I dunno if a wiki will be as convenient. I made a script to autograb variables from a .cfg file, so I don't think people need to get involved in this (the script can handle it).

Everything in the menu has tooltips that help describe tooltips or settings, etc. These are little boxes with text that show up when you put your mouse over the setting slider or gametype button. imo these suffice, but they may not for others.

The idea of a codex was to make the story accessible to people in game. If you got bored (hopefully that won't happen) or you are quite the sci-fi geek, then you might want to enjoy reading the codex. It'd also be a way to put in backstory and other details that may not be apparent in the main game. Think Mass Effect.

I also completely agree that content for this should be formed in a wiki, then edited before inclusion. Perhaps a vote to what becomes real Xonotic story before inclusion in the game should also be held.
