I made some searches and didnt find anything related to this.
With some additions, the minimap could give informations about what happens down there to new players, and also could help experienced players by allowing them to read the situation on the minimap much easier. It could be a good addition to something Flayra is actually considering :
- Drawing â€œunder attackâ€ blips on the minimap (sometimes you see a hive sight blip then bring up the map and canâ€™t see whatâ€™s under attack)
Marine side A few colours and icons on the map would help to quickly have an estimation of the overall situation of the game. The comm would be able to have a better tactical insight of the game and players would find easily where to go to find action or be useful.The ennemy territory is updated by scans and playersâ€™ line of sight.
Red for rooms controlled by enemy Green for friend Grey for neutral Light red or green with a small flashing electricity icon for non powered rooms. Yellow tools icon for damaged buildings Red flashing buckler for attacked buildings
The minimap would not only give positions but also secondary objectives as well as tactical informations.
Alien side The territory expands with the infestation and appears as green. Parasited buildings appear as red on minimap.
