  • Are we planning on starting to use the STHUD?

    I am simply wondering if the Admins have considered using the ShackTac Fireteam Hud on aplha?
    It feels like it could help sorting out some of the cofusion that may uccur in some bigger missions.
    What do the rest of you think?

    If this question has been asked before slap me on my fingers. :P

    because it is client-side only. It is left as an option for the user, and won't be part of the map pack. Similar to CSM, JTD, Landtex, or other client-side mods.

    Feel free to download and use it, and recommend it to all the new players.

      Basically what Glory just said. We dont push client sides mods on everyone. There are those that dont like the HUD and those that do, so it is up to the player to determine if its something they would like to have or not.

        Don't forget that putting something on the Yoma link doesn't force people to use it. I don't use ACEX_SM for example. What it does do is influence the majority, ie most on the server will have it unless they opt out. Whether this is right or wrong im not sure.

          We will not be adding it.

            Since it's clientside, having it distributed to everyone is typically only a good idea when an entire group is united behind such a mod. When it comes to something like the STHUD, where you can potentially have people object on the grounds of "realism", and when dealing with a community like what TG has established in A2, it makes more sense to leave it up to the individual to pursue if they're interested. The lack of signature checking allows for this easily at present, and the inclusion of a server key allows it to be added to any signature checking system if ever that were pursued.

            If you like it, feel free to tell others about it. Everyone's welcome to make their own decision on it and use it if they enjoy it.

              I started using it after I saw Dslyecxi's post in the other forum about it. Tried it out last night and it worked nicely especially in the begining when everyone was trying to find their squad etc. I saw command element guys a certain direction so I headed towards them and easy as pie. I also noticed several others using it including Tobal so it appears its catching on quite well here. If everyone tries it for a couple missions I'm sure they will enjoy its functionality and keep it. It will definitely help if you're holding a position and your FTL or rest of your fireteam/squad start moving out without you facing them to notice it.

                I love the STHUD. It helps to fill the painful loss of spatial awareness that comes with a video game.

                    Is this addon signed with the Alpha/Bravo servers? Will we be able to connect if we have it installed?

                      NoDebate, its just client side so everyone can use it no matter the server.

                          There is a new version that will display up to 12.
