The radar is one of the most useful tools in the game, but it needs some work. Mixed Mode stays on the player information too long, Radar Mode leaves you with no idea of who you're fighting and Player Mode is useless. I suggest Player Mode gets replaced with a variation of Mixed Mode... Instead of the player information being displayed over the radar, it would be displayed under the Radar. Take a look.



So how about it?

Honestly, i like it a lot. This would also fix the part where long nicknames can be shown instead of part of the nick in the radar.

Agreed That would help me hunt down/avoid people ingame while keeping track of my surroundings. ^^

great idea indeed but I'd rather redesign the radar a bit instead of just placing some text below the scouter

yea i like the idea, that way the radar never gets blocked out of view, but also helps to keep track of who your fighting.

Neat idea ... It made me think of this

Well in the show when raditz used his scouter on goku , gokus powerlevel appeared right under gokus chest or w/e.


Also... in the show raditz was able to detect power levels with his scouter.. from miles an miles away by simply pressing a button or 2 on his scouter

What if a player could press a button that causes him to go into first person and at the same time a scouter would cover his screen, and if a player was in view(not direct view but on the screen). Then the players name + powerlevel would show underneath the red diamond that's above the character.

This would allow people to scout other people from long distance

@Jinx: No

@DJ: Anything that would allow someone to view the radar and who they're figthing at the same time would be good.

Sounds like an interesting idea. But dosent this kinda make all other radar modes obsolite. I mean if this gets put in there is no need to have any other mode?

Other than that i kinda like it (even though i dont use the radar XD)

Well, what would you rather have?

One mode that does everything, or three seperate modes that require toggling?

Thats just my point ^^

If you have one mode that does everything all the time. You dont need the other modes ^^ So they can be removed.

Maby my post sounded wrong.

What i ment was if this idea gets in the team can also disable the other modes. So youd only have scouter on or off.

Oh, I get it now. Yeah, I misinterpreted your post a bit.

:3 You're right, it would only need to be toggled on or off, which would be a little nicer during battle, I think. It would certainly make a helpful addition.

I think it would be great if you could show a person's name above their head, like in Jedi Academy.

Wouldn't this work:


http://img488.imageshack.us/img488/3848/esfscouter9pj.jpg

As soon as you hover your mouse over the enemy player, a sprite similair to the show's scouter will fade in to about...20~40% opacity. So it doesn't block your view, but is still readable. (I used 20% in this image, should be a bit higher seeing as the text is rather hard to read). Simple, good and effective.
