is there any way to program something that alerts you to a player nearby who has more gold then you, and you should perhaps ccow it??

example:


PLAYER X IS CLOSE BY AND HAS 6 GOLD. YOU HAVE 2 GOLD. HOARD THE GOLD FOR BIG POINTS!!!

the person with more gold could have a ! above his head to alert the team who has the most uncashed gold.

maybe this is getting too elaborate, but there have been many situations when something like this would have been helpful.

how about a way for the person to indicate that he has a lot of gold... eg type in a /cow to let them know he is a perspective cow, with a bit of gold... that'd be a functional way to do it.

And you could add a little cow icon to the sound pack. Which would make it a multimedia pack. Heh.

Hmmmm... how about having it like the ammo hud when the lieu points to a player / health hud when the medic points to a player.

Each player could just aim at a teammate to see how much gold they are carrying. Makes sense to me as your looking at someone you can tell what they are carrying, right? This would be simple, yet effective.

I agree with Ohayden. Mouse over seems simple and to the point. This way player gets info when the want it and don't have to rely on others' V-Say or having to type/bind something.

It's a good idea but I don't think very many players would be smart enough to put the system to full use.

Whenever I have 4 or 5 gold and I see a teammate walking like a pig, i do /kill and let him collect. I fricken hate it when I see a huge gold pile, then 3 teammates run up to it, collect 8 gold each, and turn it all in seperately.....then I usualy leave the server in disgust.

actually when they do that it has it's benefits, if they know about cowing... if several people pick up the gold then pool it when they get closer to the flag, they won't be as voulnerable because they still can move... but most of the times the noobs would pick up the gold and cash it in... i used to do that... Embarassed
but about the not everyone taking advantage of it, not everyone that plays lt takes advantage of theirs... but it's still there...

i'd def. have to agree with ohayden. if you could point on a teammate and see exactly how much gold they have, then you wouldn't have to take the time when you are vulnerable to exchange chat about how much each of you has, although that could be the downside of that, i've prolly killed several ppl where they were sitting near the flag pole, prolly exchanging how much they had, and they just get blasted and lose all of it all together. after saying that, i now don't know where i stand on this issue Confused

Maybe we should have a strategy page with tips on being a better Banimod player.
