Map Cursor Player info TOGGLE
« on: March 29, 2021, 12:15:08 PM »
Currently if you move your cursor over a friendly player their name appears.

Wish:

Would it be possible to TOGGLE this between name and plane/vehicle type using the current ICON toggle setting?

Why:
In a crowded map with lots of friendlies attacking lots of places, it's really difficult, loud, and confusing to try to ask everyone who got Troops, buffs, etc..  IT would quiet a lot of unneeded squawking if we had a way to check.  :salute

Is it easy enough to do for a trial? Im thinking it may get too busy in an area with lots of players. Or could you add it as an option in the toggled list we have now..... "Friendly icons", "enemy icons", "No icons", "Name+plane icon".

That could work but when the board get crowded it might get hard to read with all that overlapping text. Gv are usually pretty close together.  I guess what ever works is fine tho.

Thanks for considering it.  :salute

If it is on mouse over like it is now, you're only getting 1 plane at a time so I don't think it would be too overcrowded.

If you think you are having a 1v1 in the Main Arena, your SA has failed you.

Would asking for 2 types of friendly GV map icon be too much to ask or implement for this feature?

The current tank icon as is for tanks and heavy metal tank destroyers with a different or smaller icon to differentiate them from light skinned GVs.

Of course an alt I style toggle on the clipboard map would be good too.

I like Fugiís idea.

Not a idea. Where would AAA vehicles fit in?

I haven't given it much thought but how about simply making them all a different shade of green or one icon 2 greens light bright and dark. A colours scheme on map icon GVs may be easiest implement and would work better than info when vehicles overlap or are in close proximity.

If we have a cycle between toggle key it would make life easier and for a small change you get a big gain in SA. It may also improve random bunches like knights chances of co-operative play.
