Premium Content Suggestion

Recommended Posts

Playing with friends, they're often confused by what is premium and what isn't in the arsenal. I was thinking premium items could be color coded (corresponding to their CfgMod) to show what really is premium. A small line of code "isPremium = true" for example could be added to decide what is, or some other way.

 

Amazingly high quality example:

The color itself for premium weapons would be visible before selection, mind you.

Don't they have an Apex icon next to them though?

Yes, but they also have DLC icons next to free things. (Heli DLC icon next to the M-900, Marksman DLC icon next to the GL vests)

 

As a result, it's really misleading.

Why not just sort them? DLC at bottom.

You don't understand what I'm saying. Certain items such as the "Carrier GL Rig (Green)" are marked as Marksman DLC items, but aren't actually premium. Because they're marked with the Marksman DLC icon, it may confuse players.

lol? What is confusing about this? Look:

Non DLC (premium) at top, can use it without DLC!

DLC (premium) at bottom, DLC required to use it!

That is strange. You could try and verify your game files, etc...

No, this is definitely something weird on your end. The icon is shown if an object is defined in a modfolder, not whether it's a premium asset or not - hence why, if you install something that adjusts base classes, like ACE, you get the ACE icon next to some base content.

 

The only thing I can think of that might caused what you're seeing there is that something overwriting those vests and doesn't have a properly defined icon (though, then it should still sort properly?) or you've moved the character_F_mark.pbo file from the marksman directory to the base addons folder for some reason (maybe some "tools" might do this? Though, what this would achieve is beyond me)
