The 13th Raptorwhat i often notice is that some pilots cant resist doing fly overs, going low as if they are going to bomb. This stupid behavior will deminish as well

I... i... i never do that.... no.... :rolleyes: , LOL Alright, but unless the enemy tanks will be locked out (and this is a whole new discussion... BoW, plz don't start), then how do you identify a tank as friend or foe since you have no idea who is sitting inside?

You should shoot an enemy tank unless you have some reasons to think that it was captured. For example, if that tank is busy attacking an enemy position then you shouldn't stop him. People might also use the chat to write something like "captured t34 in e8 - dont shoot me", I sometimes do that even now if I capture a tank.

Excellent suggestion. If the tractor can be stealth, why not all the other abandoned vehicles. Obviously, your teammates should still be visible on your minimap. But the abandoned vehicles showing on the map is just something that's been bothering me.. for a long time. Hope it wouldn't take much time to change it though, but it would definetely worth it. You can assume one would look at the minimap if you suspect an incoming tank, I know I do. And whenever I am driving an enemy tank, and notice teammates closing in, I just press the F1 button twice or something. Always did the trick for me.

If there is no icon for the empty vehicle, there will be no icon for that vehicle even when someone is inside. And if there is no icon for the vehicle, pressing F1 will not blink your vehicle on the minimap, so no one will know that it's you shouting "Roger" Unless, you can make the nametag blink like it does on BFV. Currently on the BF42 engine, the name tag can blink (in CTF mode, when someone has a flag). If that could somehow be adopted for this situation, then it would be cool. Other then that.... :uhoh:

FH would be the most realistic mod in BF if every single thing (infantry, vehicles-manned or unmanned) would be turned off. the minimap is a friggan GPS locator, lets make it an actual map and only have terrain. this would rock hard IMO. increased TKs are fine, just only shoot at things coming to you, not going away. also make it so the tags are invisable so its got a more real feel

I usually do that in deathmatch maps such as zielona gora, just shoot the ones coming for ya, if you get a tk, thats a shame, but shows that pig for being a coward and running back!

*bump* I think this idea deserves an answer from a dev, no? :)

more tactics? Are you insane? Everyone would feel like a lone wolf on the battlefield, and theyd all start playing like one.

This is a horrible suggestion for this type of game. Radio commands, clan play, any hope of teamwork, would be compleatly thrown out the window.

no thankyou.

This would limit teamwork MASSIVELY, how are people meant to know where to have air support without someone having to stop, type in and press enter. IN that short space of time they could die. No offence but it's a terrible idea. it would just ruin the idea of team work...
