Group system visual overhaul

15 posts in this topic

Id really like to see the group system visuals changed. Since you cant see the name of the members of your group maybe the ability to change the color of your marker would be cool. And just change the hexagon marker to something more like wasteland(a solid shape above the head). And maybe the ability to see group members on the map.

Please never icon groups. That's the worst thing in wasteland. Or give us the ability to turn them on and off.

Groups already have the hexagon why would it be so bad if they were more visible?

The hexagon isn't really that intrusive to gameplay. Those large blocks of bright color that can be seen through everything and block plenty of pixels in wasteland are just ridiculous. I believe even hex's should be gone, but I have played hundreds of hours of arma life where they are removed so i'm used to knowing who, what, when, and where while I play anyways and understand that can be hard for some. I could get behind GPS locators for players in your party if you and that person both have a GPS.

Im in agreement with the OP, ideally something a bit more obvious. Having it being able to be enabled/disabled would be nice, but the hexagon isnt great.

We have implemented player marks on our server (Straight Outta Exile) It allows other people who are in the same group see who and where their group members are on the map.

 

Not sure if this is the kind of thing you are looking for.

 

Thanks, Jim

Is that a server setting or an edit to the mission file?
