Title: Add a game launcher
Post by: St. Jimmy on April 16, 2017, 08:52:23 PM
Game launcher should have these things:

- Graphic settings
- Mod list where you can enable/disable mods before launching the game
- Mod presets
- Launch parameters
- Server browser
- Automatic mod set-up when you pick up a server. The game has Steam Workshop integration so it should be somewhat easy (dev triggering word) to implement a way to identify the mods the server has. Or something needs to be done on the server side so it points out what mods it uses.

Because WreckFest is using a system where you need to enable or disable mods before launching a game, I'd recommend investigate and do the automatic mod set-up the same way as Bohemia Interactive did with Arma 3. Of course Assetto Corsa and rFactor way would be bit easier for users but I don't know how hard that's to implement compared to the current way.
