RC2 Race Position Indicator

Postby Justify » Wed Dec 02, 2015 10:31 pm

I found that one to be very helpful in the past. It show a straight line and a little car or dots that represent the cars and their positions in the current lap. So I know who is close or how much I have to catch up.

It can be seen here on the left:

Yeah this map thing is a must have! If my suggestion to have player profiles get to the game I would like to see little photos of everyone in online races in the map so you can focus on harass you friend :) But this can turn up to be a bad thing so a option to turn it off and just show dots or even do not implement this little photos at all...I don't know just telling what I think! But there is time to think about it so yeah :)

Photos take up a lot of screen space, unless you make them very small. Make them very small, and they're useless ;p

yeah... just dots them and when you see their car from afar you could see the photo and the name maybe? or make icons instead of photos in the map :)

Try to stay on topic hikikomorigamer - if you need to add something about player profiles, please do so in the appropriate thread.
Thank you ;)

Broscar edit: That's not the appropriate thread though. He's talking about online player profiles and to include them in some manner on the screen.

It is just an indicator. As such it should be as simple as possible, so it isn't very distracting.
Profile Pictures are something for the leader board.

But if it is optional sure, why not. If enough people want profile pictures in the HUD.

I think the cars should represent the player through customization. So you can keep the overall theme/asthetic of the game. At least during the races.

Exact. Sorry, my mistake, didn't get the inclusion in the map thing :p

Yeah if a car can be so different from the other to the point I can identify who is piloting it from far away that would be great :)

But I mean more from racers that you can't see and are far away from you! Maybe use a button to show only when pressed some kind of transparent map someplace in the screen with everyone photos would be nice. First place seeker example: If we race in teams I would like to hit the other team car so the other guy from my team wins or if I want to target someone with lot's of points in a championship I would like to save the seeker for that opponent!

Well we do not need to use photos just use whatever we can use to identify ppl :)
