Nifty. And that will flash if you're down and do the "We need a Medic" macro, correct?

Correct. This helps get the medic's attention because they can see this symbol through both walls and floors. If needed, I can even add exclamation points on either side of the symbol that flash when macroing "We need a Medic."

Alternatively, a live person asking for a medic will have the medic symbol and exclamation points flash above their head, like so:



Less confusing that way.

The biggest problem I see is communication. It's very hard for the downed player to know if there's any medics on their way. Any solution?

Well, in my respawn improvements there's the indicator to know whether an Adv Medic is in your area. I'm thinking Adv Medics can respond through chat to any "We Need a Medic" calls from corpses. "I hear you guys, I'm on my way!" can be broadcast to any corpses within the adv medic's area. Kind of a Med-Net ability I guess.

I always thought that the best way to get Adv Meds to do something would be to let them rez you up until the time you would respawn.

Yup, that's in the improvements.

The other idea is taken from Wolfenstien, apparently: that your wait time before hitting the respawn button counts toward your respawn timer.

Oddly, in general, I think PlanetSide actually has TOO MANY ingame HUDs

Namely the
health/armor bars, infantry, vehicles, deployables
Waypoints
Platoon bar
Gun bar


Often times I turn off all the HUDs, and it's rather suprising how GOOD PlanetSide looks without em.

A strong example would be SpitFire Turrets and Motion Sensors.
Theres really not any reason that you need to have their name listed above.
The only information needed is if it's friendly, and a vague notion of how much armor it's got.
Doing this could be accomplished by having just an simple armor bar.

All bets are off on energy equipment though, with the Enhanced Targeting.
More info, the better.

Another simple example would be this, as compared to this:

Just a quick note: Planetside Idealab now has an IRC channel. Just log onto PSU's IRC server and type /join #idealab .

You can use this to discuss your concepts, or talk about the idealab concepts in a live fashion.

Enjoy!
