Killmarks!

Postby Queadah » Sun Jan 15, 2017 8:51 am

This is something GRIP needs!
To reinforce a sense of achievement ingame, our cars could use killmarks on their hulls to display proudly their MP kills for all to see :D.
I'm taking the example of the excellent EVE online:



Their system is really good:
  • change the markings based on the manufacturer
  • combine different shapes to showcase a maximum of kills in as very few symbols as possible

You know what, let's just copy this below shamelessly:

CE DO THIS PLZ!!

Good idea but there`s one problem with that. The Kill Marks would be all over the car after some time xD

Sometimes I can't see even the colors of the opponent cars, not to mention kill marks :)

Nope! The link I provided gives a very good management idea to crank as many kills as possible in very few markings!
Just replace "ship" with "car" in the sentences below:
EVE ONLINE link wrote:"These marks represent an active tally and appear in three sizes reflecting their representative values: 1, 10, or 100. When a ship has acquired nine marks of one level, earning another will result in a single mark on the next tier. In this way, up to 999 kills can be recorded on a ship, using just 27 marks.

The style of the marks themselves is determined by the manufacturer of the ship"

Well yeah, but here's the thing:
During the cinematic cameras after the races, remember we have very good close-ups from the hood!
This is perfect to showcase the feature and build a sense of pride during MP!! :twisted:

Very cool idea. Different amounts of kills can be represented by single symbols. 1 is a line, 10 is a box, 50 is a triangle, 100 is a circle, etc

Killmark in action lulz:

Me being b*tchy, it is best if you keep the same "base" in number increment, otherwise a legend we'll be needed to explain how much each symbol is worth, i.e:
  • the increment in marking, 1, 10, 100 is perfect (factor 10)
    which means each step is worth 10 of the previous and each mark is identifiable as a fixed number of the previous one.
  • If you switch increment in the chain (1 -ok-, 10 -ok- then... 50 -oops-) you break the logic sequence where the symbol representing 50 isn't 10x 10 (like 10 is 10x1 for the previous marking)

Plus 1 10 100 is perfect for the reasons EVE devs gave:
with 27 symbols you can go up to 999 = FUTURE PROOF

Actually killmarks could be displayed in Razer Chroma. Somewhere on your keyboard :D

Edit.1

Examples:

1 KILL

Image

2 KILLS

Image

14 KILLS

Image

49 KILLS

Image

50 KILLS

Image

100 KILLS

Image


Sry for the image quality, potato phone :C

eh ^^, I thought more of permanent killmarks, like a badge of honor.

Your Razor setup would have to be lit all the time, 'not sure it works. Instead of being only active killmarks in a race, I thought it would be better if it displays your whole killing stats (MP kills only, no bots ofc) ;)

Gentlemen, proudly presenting to you Terra killmarks:

Image
The icons and text on the top left corner are just for explanation. Real deal is on the car:
  • Shape is a "chevron" or ribbon, whatever you call this ^^
  • Gives the military vibe Terra is all about
  • Using the same neon blue effect than the wheel magnetism so it stands out
  • The 1st row of single-chevron represent kills from 1 to 9. At 10 (10 kills) you start filling the 2nd and the 1st resets
  • The 2nd row of double-chevron represent tenth of kills. At 10 (100 kills) you start filling the 3rd and the 2d resets
  • The 3rd of triple-chevron is about hundredth of kills
  • OT: with time, I also realized I slightly prefer the shield in blue for uniformity in design

Vintek killmarks could be more old-school/raw. A mix of roman numbers (the X for 10) and crayon style drawings:

Another idea of chroma personal killmarks

Image

It works like this. First numer in the whole amount would be Blue, Second number would always be Green and the last number would always be Red.

Like this: XXX

So on the pic i posted i would have 510 kills

Well what's the point of showing it on keyboard if no one else but you sees it ? :p

A good advantage of kill marks is that you can show it off to others

WROB3L lol. Still, Chroma aside, here's a shot at Cygon killmarks:

Image

I thought it could be close to "predator" symbols to look more alien (no pun intended), redish/orange-ish would suit the overall cygon theme perhaps
