New Dot Command request
« on: February 04, 2023, 11:43:20 AM »
Would love to see the ability to change the Gamma setting with a ".gamma #.##" command. I know it is available in the Graphics settings on the clipboard, but the dot command would be quicker and you could set up a macro to change it. :airplane:

Are you talking about for nighttime?

It seems curious to me.  If people are just going to turn up gamma to negate the night, why not get rid of the night and let people turn down their gamma to simulate flying in darkness.

The later would be a much smaller population effected I imagine.

The night dynamic is cool to me. It gets a little extra dark in some places on some maps. Even adjusting the gamma doesnít completely relieve the night but it makes it more bearable. Depends on your display settings too, you canít move the gamma too much before itís a washout.

I use it for various lighting conditions, one of them being night time.

I would like a dot command to see who

 is hiding in a building.

.callsignvisiblenow.

Or a dot command:

.buildingwithhiderbecomesinvi siblenow

No more building and the hider becomes exposed.  :D

I would like the reverse I some cases. There are some for commands like salvo I wish I could map to buttons.
