There will be an expandable/collapsable list to view all units and hierarchies in a Task Force. There will also be a simplified "tree" version where you can see the unit branches and even drag and drop them to different units and commanders (if the unit has toggled that ability).

As Early surmises, the graphic shown is conceptual, merely showing how the Task Force works.

  • A Division is a group commanded by one of the Command Squad members. Consider these as mini-Task Forces. They can hold as little as one or two players, or 1 squad, or 1 platoon, or even 1 company.

    Unlike Platoons or companies, members cannot see one another unless they are in the same unit (squad, platoon, company). Instead, each squad leader will see all other squad leaders in the Division, just like they can see all the squad leaders in the Task Force.

I suppose that the Command Squad could be the only one that can see all of them, but that might complicate things.
The Command Squad, as well as all the squad leaders in the Task Force, will be able to see the squad leaders of other units but not their members, unless they click the Reveal TaskForce button which provides a snapshot of all TF members as gold dots every 10 min (or sooner depending on balance).

Yeah. Some nice ideas. Seeing these in the sky would be kinda cool, but personally I'd like a waterbased carrier grace the waves of PS too.

Unfortunately, the devs still have to figure out how to allow players to run around within a vehicle while it's moving without forcing them to become a part of it, like the vehicles we have now. Not sure why they can't do it yet, must be the way they coded it.

Oh wait, isn't the name Scythe is already taken?

lol. It's just my continent pages I'm making. Although it would be nice if SOE did something like this for the main page or even in-game. Just a note, I'll have to make my own planets cause the ones shown are from another source.

http://www.planetside-idealab.com/co...s_cyssor.shtml

http://www.planetside-idealab.com/co...s_solsar.shtml

These are the only two I have up so far, but they're missing the pop-up maps, descriptions of the fauna, some game fiction, landscape shots, etc. Eventually I'll have a page for each cont, island, and cavern. I'll also make printer-friendly versions of the topography and tactical maps...eventually.

Pretty sure it isn't, you may be thinking of the Thresher.

I think the Scythe is the name of the gun on the Switchblade.

Oh noes, more work! heheh. Well, once I'm done I don't think it would be too much trouble to alter the interface to match PSU (sticks foot in mouth). But I don't know what my time will be like in the coming months. I'd love to do it, but I'll have to see.

Data entry is such a pain in the arse.

All the cont/cavern/sanc pages are up with their respective descriptions but most of them lack the nifty map graphics, which I'm still working on. But at least you can get acquainted with it if you like.

http://www.planetside-idealab.com/co...s_ncsanc.shtml

To browse planets you can click on a world in the starmap to the right of each planet data or you can click the Back to Planetary Menu button beneath the continent banner.

The Planetary Menu will be changed to a Flash map that mimics the global map in the game (starmap, roll over planets, links appear, yada yada).

I messed up the CSS file in getting these out so all the site links and body text look odd or not there. I'll be fixing that shortly, but I'm too tired right now.
