Increasing range of view of icons in radar
« on: 28 10, 2019, 10:41:06 pm »
Imma go direct in suggestion.

Server looks empty when you check your radar. Just for example:


There are more people around of me but due to short range of view in radar it looks so alone, don't you think?

Now check old radar version:


Just 2 people close to me, others are far away.




Why not to increase players' blips range and make them appear like that "pumpkin" icon (for example) on radar? By that way server will not look so empty in my opinion. It sounds weird I know but I really feel like I am alone in whole server. There were +250 players at moment when I took SS of that square radar.

Also:
It might effect on FPS, imo there must be a setting for this to increase/decrease radar range.


So what do you think?

I completely agree with you. The old range of view radar was filled with blips of other players even if they were far away from you so it didn't make us feel like we are playing alone or in an empty place. The current radar has a short-range of view which makes us feel like we are lonely in the game or a certain place.

In my case, sometimes the job destinations when I'm doing civilian jobs, can't be seen because it is too far away, and I can't find any setting to increase the range of blips.

Upvoting, I had a very big problem in Pilot job and no one can solve it from the developers but this idea will solve it. (https://cit.gg/index.php?topic=344721.0)

the idea won't hurt anyone and it really worth to be developed.

yeah, it looks really empty . I feel lonely when the map looks empty . That's why I support your proposal . Maybe that way I don't feel alone . Upvoting  :tick:

I think we've got this system in /settings ?, I it was removed when i've checked it today /settings > Player > ______ I dont find it, we can set distance of player blip in radar like distance wanted level in F5 system on Police. Yeah I am really agree with you Prototype. +1 :tick:

No idea about FPS. But I agree about a setting to change radar range.
