Party Members Identification


9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

During this weekend my friend and I rolled together - killing, fishing, exploring - and I noticed that in the ocean of players it was difficult to find my friend. The main way to find them was to bring up the big map. The mini-map only showed them when you were facing in their direction and even if they were in front of you with a large group of people it was difficult to figure out who was who because when someone was in your group their name is just slightly highlighted (yellowish white).

I suggest that maybe your party/group members always show up on your mini-map regardless if you are facing in their direction and that perhaps their names are changed to a different color or highlighted in a color that is more noticeable then a color that closely matches the default name color.

On the big map you can see them anyways so I don't really get why they wouldn't be on the minimap also.

100% agree with the -  party/group members always show up on your mini-map regardless.

And /or  add a Party member color arrow in the main UI, just like the blue quest arrow with aprox Meter display.
-party member 1 green arrow with number 1 inside the arrow
-party member 2 green arrow with number 2 inside the arrow

a.s.o.

The range of the radar is quite silly atm, even if you are watching in the same direction as your friend/party member you won't see him clearly untill you're 30m away from him.

If the player is right next to you, the marking on the minimap will be faded so it's still hard to se him/her, unless you're looking directly at the individual according to the minimap.

Yeah it definitely needs to be altered a bit..... it would make groups easier.
