Expanded Score

Post by Lancer » Wed May 11, 2016 6:29 pm

So at bottom left of every map is a display of every alive and dead player and their score as well as team,does anyone else think it should be expanded to show:kills,units lost,tcs owned?
Right now its pretty unused but it can have a potential to display some usefull information :idea:
For example this is score:
Yourname(1):437 kills:21 Lost:11 TCs:2 Army:21
Enemy(2):521 kills:23 Lost:36 TCs:2 Army:26
Ally(1):356 kills:15 Lost:12 TCs:1 Army:16
I think army count would be most usefull :) it includes amount of units but not counting buildings or tcs.

Hm... I like this system, but I also feel that it might give too much away. For instance, if I see 2 players kill/death count going up, I will know they have met and are fighting.

I like the idea, but maybe it should be an option on the game settings?

It can be disabled in game creator for those who play with fog of war :)
A simple "Expanded Score" off and on should do

Perhaps in the future, but right now he has only so much time to put in new game features.
Thanks!

i can make it but like this:
A new "window" you can open from in-game-menu that shows things like AOE did like this:

if anyone could design an appearance, and statistical "columns" that would help in it.

Looks really cool: just wondering, what file format would you need? (I probably will not have time to do it all myself this week though)
Thanks!

- first only a textfile with the planned data (columns/rows)
- after an only hand drawn image of the appearance concept,
- and when we all agree
- than the images/backgrounds(even in a 9patch drawable)
