Suggestion: String together user made missions into a single 'Mission Pack'

For CW4, I think it would be a good benefit to have the ability for map makers to create a series of missions and be able to string them into a single "Mission Pack" as it were; possibly with the ability to CRPL proper transitions from one mission to the next, like base game, then upload the Mission Pack as a whole instead of uploading 17 individual missions and cluttering the interface, or uploading them sporadically and making them harder to find.

Food for thought.

How often, and by how many map makers will this be used, do you think?

Being able to make my own custom campaigns, and not just maps, that sounds wonderful.  I'd most certainly use it heavily!

I guess it doesn't need to be story/campaign, but could be some maps that get harder as you progress/same map with multiple difficulties?

I'm pretty sure anyone that likes to make an abundance of missions would make use of it. It would be great for those who like to keep track of any story campaign's they're following, and for those who make a variety of challenge and puzzle maps.

Love this suggestion. Especially in Particle Fleet, there were a lot campaign style sequential maps that I followed. Having it as a single pack would be great.
I'm not that much of a mission builder but I'm sure the Creeper-verse would use it.

YES!  I've seen people ask for it in CW3 and Particle Fleet and it's about time that was made a standard feature.  Would be a wonderful addition.

There's plenty of missions in CW3 that are a part of a series of missions, but map makers ususally just use the mission's title and description to tell people that its a series. An actual dedicated mission pack system would be a big improvement to that.

ONE ISSUE however is can a mission pack be added to over time? or if you upload a pack it stays as that set forever?
Mario maker uses the later formula, allowing users to upload levels individually until they are ready for a world upload.
