  • [ANNOUNCEMENT] Situational Awareness fix - Player group names script now in TG Template

    As per THIS POST:

    We now have a players names script that will allow you to press your "Teamswitch" button and all players in your group will display their player name over their head for 45 seconds. Group members are in green and your leader is in orange. The names disappear after that and at 48 seconds you can press the key again to display names as needed. The names will only show if your group members are 20m or closer to you. This simulates being able to recognize people when not too far away.

    The purpose of this addition to our mission templates is to improve team recognition and make getting organized a little more natural. To this end, this player name script will be added to our existing missions so that it will be available across the board to all players and does not require any additional content or mods. Everyone who joins our server will have this tool immediately. Injecting existing missions will take a couple of days to do.

    Looking forward to seeing how it works out & how we might improve it and these templates for our purposes as time moves on.

    Big thanks to B and Yink for helping get this working. Another helpful product of the Arma Projects Team.

    Sounds cool, been looking forward to it since someone mentioned it, pretty much the only aspect of ARMA3 i didn't really like, although the immersion factor of it was quite nice, I'd rather have the cohesion with being able to see the names. It did however force me to get quite familiar with the voices of my SL's though, so that was cool =D

      Think of this is a simple "aid" for the players learning or needing help with ArmA. No one is forced to utilize it even if it is available. Hopefully people will not need this in the future, but those that do the option will be available.

      Most importantly, it is a TG native thing that no one will have to use MODs or anything on...

          Thanks, this will be very helpful! Awesome that it's non-intrusive as well - if you don't want it, don't use it.

            After trying it I’m satisfied that it adequately simulates normal physical recognition you would experience being in a group which is totally lacking in Arma without using STHUD. Excellent work Unk, B and Yink!

                  Sniper: we picked the teamswitch key because its unused in multiplayer, and you can set it to any key you want. default in arma 3 is "U" though.

                    Thanks Yink, I like to start with Default, I know I can always change them but I try to avoid "cross key conflict" at least until I get a little better at the whole thing.

                    See you in game,
