i personally think the compass should be A equipment that you can carry on,
just like you carry your nades, pistol, riffle, knife

the compass should be some hight-tech item,
that you can hold on your hands, the compass is something like A modern navigator,
that shows the map blue print on the display, to see where the bom should be placed/located, you have to check A blinking red light on the display,

so evrytime you wanna check where the bom is located,
just press key7, than you will hold your kompass on your left hand, while holding your weopon on the right hand, so you can still shoot while holding the compass.
but you cant aim on the iron sight,

devs should use there imagination how the high-tech compass should look like,
and if it looks like something that dont exist in the real world...

WHO CARES................
as long it looks good,
so TCE will have some of his own characteristic features.

dont you mean PDAs and GPSs? yeah, that is quite correct and will make the game more realistic without affect gamepaly too much or as much as getting rid of the hud completely. that way, the compass is no longer part of the hud meaning that the rest of the hud can be shrunk down small enough to be seen and not crowd up the screen or look like its part o the FOV.

you mean the international forum???
oh no,,

most people on that forum, are low key/lowminded/dumb people.
if you post this idea in the international forum, they will flame you like crazy,

i find this forum much pleasant and enjoyable.
good people who i can discuss with, and debate with.

lets just hope the devs also read stuff on this forum.

lol. you mean me, kozak, and flyhead, and some of the other active guys. :D well, since its just us, why wouldnt it be a pleasant forums. but the thing is, most of the devs are in TCE.main, TCE.US is just a NA community, well, that has some member that arent actually from NA. All we can hope now is that the devs can finish what thier working on soon, and have more than enough morale, and time to continue on and put in all these other features.

back to topic, I think they could use the same style in Doom3, where you can open up a PDA and do stuff with it. We could have the gps do that, but instead, it doesnt cover up the screen. In the gps, you can track teammates, objectives and stuff, then you can also use it to (not exactly a GPS device only) to do other stuff like hotwire enemy bombs (digital not analog bombs) and other stuff.

I take this as an insult.

Btw, I like the idea of a non-HUD compass. It has been discussed at tc.main several times.

http://www.truecombat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1897&highlight=compass

http://www.truecombat.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3152&highlight=compass

I can't see any insults in these threads. Just mature, constructive and calm discussion. At least until you showed up. Maybe it has something to do with how ideas are presented and how the presenter reacts to criticism? Just an idea...

we should all calm down before anything else gets nasty.
btw i would love a pda in my hand, being able to analyze the situation. maybe something like a modified psp, cos it was that kickass wifi capability. and a cool feature would be remote detonation, place the thing on the ground and scuttle away, waiting for some dude to pass by. (also possible for suicide attempts ) or else if you died the pda thing would automatically blow up or become a mine ( prox mine or one that you have to step on.)
ANYWAY THE *i-need-a-broader-vocab* GAME ISN'T GOING TO COME OUT UNTIL NEXT YEAR, WHY *i-need-a-broader-vocab* BOTHER?

Why? TC:E aims for realism. You have realistic weapons and other equipment. You don't use laser guns either, right? I'd prefer a PDA-style device.

noooo,

thats not what i mean,
its about that TCE should have his own characteristic features...
and I dont mean that the device should be something from the year 8789,
what i mean by futuristic, is something high-tech that could exist in this world.

you know splintercell right? the main character has like 3 scopes on his had,
and thats realy A splintercell thingy,
thats what i mean with having A own characteristic thing in a game that others dont have.

you get me mel?

Ah, okay. Now I understand. I agree with you that a SpecOp with...let's say a Palm Z22 in his hand would look rather stupid.

What about that Army-style thingy?

Or this one:

Got some more...

i whas thinking,

the device should not only be used for compass
why not make it able to switch to the menu,

example:

you will see this on the display.
----------------------
OPTIONS

GAME SETTINGS

CHANGE SERVER

EXIT GAME

MISC
-----------------------
