Partial Transparency on Main-Screen radar dots

Post by Dragon45 » 26 Apr 2005, 06:16

Just a suggestion; the way the things are looking, the main-screen radar dots are solid red circles, and they look like they could fill up a viewport pretty quickly. Partial transparency would help to alleivate some of that. Plus it might add an extra dimension of analysis whereby if they're partially transparent dots indivudally, but you still see a thick mass of red, you know that you're up against one farking huge army.

yes it is... although it would be nice if the radar blips didn't have reflections... because that ALSO eats system.

The current system is inadequate imo not to mention unsightly. I think a Circle should appear in the teams colou with their insignia inside and a drop down line. Of course I've mentioned this before, I should find that thread and post a remidner in it so it reaches up the page and you all finally read it.

I'd rather see the blips not being cut off for an unknown reason as they are now. You can see it in some screenies.

On seans screens they have a black area at the edge where it doesnt fade out,, perhaps they got rid of that?

Something more minimal might work better, like some 5 pixel x's perhaps.
