TheGrimm.5624 Posted January 31 Share Posted January 31 The idea is to start with a more simple interface that can be expanded on later pending use and needs and project costs. Concept is to allow a player to pop open the map and hover over an objective their side holds. The pop up would show the amount of supply the objective currently has and a siege icon that would show green, yellow or red. Green would indicate all the siege at the objective has 40+ minutes left before it expires. Yellow would appear if any siege is between 16-39 minutes before expiration and then if any have less than 15 minutes left would show red. This would not indicate how much siege is in the objective nor the various types, that would still be up to the player to locate and refresh but could be used in helping know that there is siege that needs renewing reducing the out of action time that defenders use up when making sure defensive tools aren't lost while they head out to find fights. Pending level of effort a further complimentary change would be to use the same color coding when a player clicks on the siege while in the structure to more quickly ID the siege that is expiring versus clicking and then hovering over the icon to get the countdown time. Again pending level of effort this would be a small QoL but would reduce time defenders are out of the fight taking care of housekeeping actions but still trying to leave defensive tools in place. The supply portion of the popup would aid both attackers and defenders of the same side in determining where they could resupply be that to repair damage after defending or for resupplying for their attack efforts. Note this is only for objectives that your side controls. One aspect that might come up is the tool being used by spy alt accounts, but the information shown could already be found out by a spy alt going to the structure themselves as people do today so see more of a gain to normal defenders over spy accounts. Tool would also be more useful to comms so they could dispatch a squad member to targeted locations versus have them check everywhere to again reduce the time people are out of action. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
