icon Challenges (+3)  
It will be selectable from the title menu (eg. Continue, Build, Restore...), when you select it it will bring you to the challenges menu (it will sort of look like the restore menu screen). From there it will display what levels you have beaten. From that level (you can only select certain level challenges from the levels you have beaten) there will be a challenge description of what to do and it will take you to the room where the challenge is. if you complete the challenge it will bring you back to the challenge menu and a little check by the description will be by it showing that you have completed it. (the challenges could be the similar ones you have posted on the forum, time challenge or "kill X number number of monsters only) This could be a good way to show off and brag about how much of a Legendary Smitemaster you are, or it could be used for unlocking hidden features of the game by doing X number of challenges.

Suggestions?

Could you export/import challenges? Could you make your own?

I like this idea, but I would be very willing to wait until after 1.7 for it to be implemented.

That would be even better, hopefully it wouldn't take too much coding to do this. If we could, we could make our own challenges for our own holds.

There could be a cool sound affect of Beethro sighing defeat and the room darkens and restarts even if you're not dead because you killed the monster you weren't supposed to, or did something that renders the challenge impossible. Ooo, oh, OH! And how bout an extra star in the holds menu if you do all the challenges for that hold? I like stars! Takes me back to grade school... :fun

Yes, but I think that would be *very* complicated.

I really like this idea!
Can't wait to hear what the devs think about it.

I think this is a good idea, as it adds an extra dimension to the game. Also, if all the challenges from the forum were included, then people wouldn't have to come snooping around here to find them, and the server load would be less, so the forums would be just that much more quick.

I think, however, that challenges should be attached to the hold upon release. Then each hold could have its own set of challenges, enabling that second star, but "unofficial" challenges, while certainly being doable, would not count toward any sort of additional status.

Cool. This is the BEST feature request I've read in a long time. I, for one, would really like to see this implemented.

Thanks for the feedback people! Has this been acknowledged by the devs?

What do you mean by acknowledged? You mean, have we seen it? Or are we going to talk about it? Or what?

In any case, we have seen it. As for talking about it, well...

Haven't really seen anyone mention this anywhere, but it would be great if all the challenges in the in-game challenge tab can have sorting columns, for level, room and name respectively. May also add a toggle button or hover-over to show the challenge description.

Because of the way that challenges are made in the editor, descriptions wouldn't really be possible. It would require a modification to the editor where architects fill in "challenge description" somewhere. Currently descriptions of challenges just don't exist.

Sorting wouldn't be bad though. Another thing that might be nice is the ability to sort/hide completed challenges so that it's quicker to find missing challenges. This is something that would only matter for really big holds, but it would be nice to not have all the completed challenges filling up space on the list.
