Hello, my fellow community friends! I have a very "strange" and at the same time interesting idea, having seen it in various FPS games. As you all know, in some games, during a stealth mission, the main character must stay in cover and undetected by the enemy... for at least as long as possible in order to complete a secret task or avoid being captured, being behind enemy lines. A little example is Battlefield 1, where the player was behind the German lines and had to stay hidden for the enemy for as long as possible and then, when detected, fight his way back to the friendlies. I was wondering if such a eye awareness (spotting) system can be somehow created, using all the information and possible commands, scripts and "magics" that exist among the community, no matter if they are vanilla ones or BIS'. For example: when an enemy is spotting the player or his teammates, the knowledge begins to arise a little, and a marker, like in those games I mentioned, starts to appear, changing also its color from white to red. By "knowledge" I mean "X knowsAbout player >..." And this would vary from 0 to the highest possible number, may be 4 in this case. So, we'd need a complex script, including all possible variants up to this highest number, which are checked one by one, and when they start to grow, this action would respond or represent the marker value and visibility on the screen, which means it also should get bigger and more red with the time. And, of course, if the player is no longer being spotted by enemy AIs, it should start to dissapear, using the same method backwards. Another command, reveal, also may come in handy, if it is possible to use it as well, or to combine both. I know it sounds complicated, but if such a marker is not possible to be displayed, how about any other kind of indicator, like an alarm, or anything else. A possible marker to use is the already existing one, by using the "use" button for marking something on the map, where a yellow marker with a sounds appears at the marked direction. So, do you think now that my idea sounds crazy... or it's a perfect new option to use in missions... 😉
