Pickup notification

Postby Sceptre » Thu Dec 03, 2015 1:40 am

A little touch I noticed is the green light that flashes on the car when getting a pickup, but a lot of times I hardly notice I managed to get it because of how subtle it is.
When I tried racing with the front camera, however I noticed a more prominent effect with four lights around the screen. IMO I think this should also be on the 3rd person camera as well. The 2 small lights are too small to notice most of the time.
This could also be used as the possible indicator for being locked on to as mentioned before, but with a red color.
Attached are both examples and quick overlay on the 3rd person camera.

i dont really see the need for that.
you know when you drive through a pickup and you can see it pop in you hud.
i think a small audio clue would solve the problem.

Personally, I think that'd just be unneeded visual clutter.

I'll bump up the brightness of teh green squares a bit, but yeah the audio needs bumping as well (there is a distinct sound for grabbing a pickup). The HUD also needs work.
