Possible improvements to the minimap system
Errors in communication can be devastating in battle.
What I propose is a system similar to that used in Alien Swarm, where players can draw on the minimap for other team members to see. This would make communication and strategy easy to pass on to your team.P: destroy his War Factory!
S: Which War Factory, there's three‽.
It would allow easy marking of targets, easy marking of routes and show your allies enemy army movement they should pay extra attention toP:Attack the War Factory I circled!
S:You got it, tanks on their way!
- Easy marking of targets
- Easy marking of routes
- Mark enemy movement
- Smiley faces to boost morale
- Open to abuse (oversized male genitalia and the like) To solve this, all players on a team should have erasers, players could be optionally ignore drawings from other players and drawing could be toggleable
- Can obscure map To solve this, give the lines a lifetime of only a few seconds or transparency
