ok we all discussed about the naming system,
some wanted the player's name to appear above the head,
some liked it, some didnt liked it,
some wanted to let it appear on the player's head the hole time, some wanted the name to appear only if you point your gun/mouse towards the player's model, some didnt wanted to see any names at all, "but that should be an option for all player's wich you should be able to adjust in the menu" "this would also reduce team killing"
the one's that didnt liked it, thinks its unrealistic to have hud's, than i explained them that huds have nothing to do with realism, it just a helping hand, because games are limited to do stuff that are possible in real life, thats why there are hud's in games, having names above the player's head isnt unrealistic, heres why... read:
ok now the real reason why name's above the player model's head would be realistic:
-if you want to recognize someone's face in real life you look at his face,
in this game evryone wants to be recognized, it would be boring if we wouldnt know with who we're playing with, now having your own personal specific face in TC:E is far fetch and "impossible" "depends on how you look at it",
but not only in TC:E, in allot of shooters it's impossible, even mmorpg's,
thats the reason why player's names are visable on the display on most online games,
if you dont know wich one is who? than names is the answer,
now i have a damn good reason why the names under the model's feet is EXTREMELY unrealistic...
- if you wanna recognize someone in real life you dont look at the person's feet, but you look at the person's face, so the player's name should be above the model's head.
because the name represents who you are/look.
the problem with names is that the one's with long names will limit the vision of other players, cause they have like more than 15 character's in their name, because they added their clan name in their alias,
so it would look probably like:
wich makes the display look untighty and sloppy,
now read this attentively
the only solution is to devide the player's name and the clan name's
and block weird font characters like: ().[space]^!@$1234 ect. ect.
players shouldnt be able to fill in weird characters/spaces/numbers in their names, you can only fill in maximum 11 letters, wich make it more neat,
so if you fill in your name "IN YOUR PROFILE" it will appear above your head like this:
now you people are probably wondering: "but how do i show people my clan name/tag"
well... the answer is very simple...
in the profile section there should be an option where you also can fill in your clan name "but its not obligated" this should be possible to code cause
the devs should only duplicate the naming system, there should be 2 naming systems, one for the real player's name, the other one is for their clan,
the player's name will appear above the head, "and the clan name wil appear under the player's feet like the current naming system" but the clan name should be smaller, and the color of the clan name should be white,
something like this:
and the blue specop font color should be removed and it should be replaced with the official yellow color,
