    Well there was several developers on in the first game, on combat. But then they all mysteriously disappeared when the map changed to tanith.

    My God, have heavies always been that huge? I mean sure, it's powered armour and all, but that's all. I mean, a human has still gotta fit inside! Do people get magically (or naniticalyy or whatever) stretched when they get heavy armour?
    I suppose it's the perspective or something. I never understood this fix anyway. What was wrong about the heavies before, and what does the fix do?
    Military cemeteries around the world are packed with brainwashed, dead soldiers who were convinced God was on their side.

    Do the named minimaps get generated automatically using buildminimaps now?

    Would whoever makes them mind posting a tutorial on exactly how they do it so that custom maps can have the same visual feel in the named minimap as the officials?

    JazzX is the one who does it, I believe he has an automated Photoshop batch for it.

    Sweet. Does it actually parse the bsp for it? Or does he have to enter the names in by hand?

    Really hate to...

    ...hate but those minimaps look kinda sucky. The text looks like I did it drunk and on 'shrooms having some sort of bad trip hallucinating about crappy fonts.

    Is there any way to revamp it and give it the same sleek look as the HUD?

    HAs were sunk in the floor by a few centimeters. The fix simply lifts them up.

    It's the same font, so...
    The screenshot's compression doesn't really help there, I'm afraid.

    I wonder if it would be feasible to implement with game text popping up over the map. It hardly needs to be on the upper right minimap, because that location is already in the lower left hand corner. All you would need to do is display text like all the rest of the text at the locations corresponding to the centers of the info_location entities when somebody brings up the full screen minimap.

    I do agree that the text quality is poor, but what can you do... At least there's names on the MiniMaps, what more can someone ask for?
  • RhodriRhodri Members Join Date: 2003-06-21 Member: 17575Posts: 415
    Yeah having names is a very good idea, who cares what the writing looks like so long as it's readable.

    And oh dear God those HA are huge!
