Got a change I want to happen.


Getting names.

  1. 1. Should the range finders be able to get names from 800m?

The current name system definitely has some flaws that should be changed. I shouldn't have to keep my rangefinders on an orca going 300km/h for 3 seconds to get a name

Open to suggestions.  I, too, am not entirely pleased with how it functions at the moment.  Definitely needs some tuning so feedback is welcome.

-Maybe limit it to 500m for 2 seconds

-I'm not sure if getting helicopter names works at all, since i had the rangefinder on an autohovering mohawk for over 10s (I counted edit I think I was 700m away). I guess it was because I was on the ground, but I think the range at which a name is detected should be determined by where what you are trying to detect is, in relation to you.

--So if you are looking for a person's name, it is a shorter distance than looking for a helicopter's name, even if you are on the ground in both scenarios. If it is already like this, then it is broken.

added a meter distance to mohawk range

I don’t see the problem with just making the nametag appear instantly instead of waiting as thats how it is when you see someone without using range finders

Yeahhhhh lets not go back to Prewipe days where you tila key the horizon to find something to rob.

I agree with you that it shouldn't be that easy to get a name, however, perfectly tracking a heli or plane that's low/close and travelling fast for 3 seconds is hard. If you have rangefinders/titan out, I see no problem with instantly getting the name of an air vehicle that's within a few km. It's still going to be easier to locate a heli at this range by using your eyes anyway.
