PT Radar & Smoke
« on: August 01, 2020, 06:31:08 PM »
Dear Hitech,

Has been posted before...maybe a repost could help.  Would be nice to have a sweeping radar scope in the right empty panel, just right of the compass, on the PT main console.  The sweep should match the radar on the mast mounted already.

Also would be helpful to initiate a smoke screen from the vessel rear with a single key click.  Could be "S" or "R".  Gives PT'ers a better chance of survival.

Thank you.
<S>

Maybe the frame hit won't be so bad if the smoke works like the clouds.

The clouds are killing my frame rate.

Define killing. 60 fps is my max frame rate due to hardware restrictions and the game is quite playable. I've seen posted films where players get twice that.

The radar was surface type radar. It could give you the range to ships, boats, and even conning towers, but was not useful for aircraft.

But that was also part of an earlier wish for PT radar.  If you spawn a PT boat close enough to an enemy task force, it would be detected by the PT boat radar, and show up on clipboard radar.  Of course, this would greatly shorten the lifespan of PT boats.
