Announcements at the top of the screen [will be tamed according to Higby]


Updated: Higby response here.

Ya know, the ones that say "NC defended x facility"

or..

"TR captured x facility"


after watching higby's stream for 2 minutes I realized they need to make these a lot smaller. They take up a third of the screen.

The annoyingness of the "Facility Defended" popups


At E3, it was kind of jarring after a capture to see a huge alert with your faction symbol to cover the top half of your screen and say that you defended a particular spot. I'm watching Higby's PS2 stream now, and there was a point when four or five alerts popped up in sequence, resulting in what felt like a few minutes of half of his screen covered by the "Facility A defended" or whatever the exact wording was. Anybody else think that such an alert should be much less prominent? Perhaps a notification somewhere small, like in PS1?

Heck, people can just look at the prominent box in PS2 with the ABCDEF capture point graphics and see in a glance that a certain place was defended. The huge alert just seems redundant.

Agreed.

Should at least be customizable.

i agree as well. was watching Higby's stream just now and every few seconds it would take up the screen.

I can picture a solid firefight where you are shooting someone up top and then that gets in your way and you can't see what you're doing.

Please fix capture box


I can already tell this will get annoying pretty fast. Imagine having that thing pop up every 10 sec saying certain facility captured by....insert here. Make is small....or something else.

Re: Announcements at the top of the screen


I think there is an issue with the UI. It appeared to get stuck saying the same base was defended over and over again. I believe I saw Higby use some sort of admin command to clear it.

Yes, that facility defended stuff is fixed in the latest build, but not the build we were just playtesting. Drives me nuts too.

@mhigby Can it be made smaller / replaced completly with a message in the text window? :>

@BastiVC that's how it'll work for regions you're not actively fighting in.
