In order to see this kind of cooperatoin, you'd have to have the clan actoin going
Yes, in clan wars you have excellent team play. A need too join a clan then :uhm: Someone have to write a "FH Bible" It would go like this: "You shall treat your allies as you want them too treat you" Team play "Does shall not kill your allies" No team kills "Does shall not steal from your allies" No Stealing tanks from other players "Does shall follow your God" Obey your leader And the ones that don't follow the bible are banned (hell) :devil:
Thou Shalt not Chat spam.
Thou Shalt not bail Tanks.
Thou Shalt make me a sandwich. (because I'm hungry)
By the way the way, that is one kind of scary smiley.
I think its a great idea, and i totally agree most players have no idea about the reasons for certain formations. That said, voip is the way to go! If you can find the right players (or friends) that are clued in about formations. Then it will work, otherwise forget it with pubbies. Im talking about them cooperating, or knowing what you're talking about. But if its possible, its still a good idea. Even if only a few players obeyed, once in a blue moon, its better than none. An icon with the shape of the formation would help too. And a voice command "Form line" or whatever, also if possible would really help. However the radio command system is, im pretty sure, hardcoded.. So i dont believe you can add more commands to the com rose. Meaning theres only so many slots and they're already filled with the other custom radio stuff. So its a question of what commands are the most important. Now BF2 has some pretty useless spammy radio commands, that could be changed to something more useful for sure! "roger that" "thank you" "negative" "go go go" Those four slots right there, could be put to better use if you ask me. Whether they should be used for formations or not is another matter aswell. (this has nothing to do with not using the custom voices for FH2, its about what those custom voices will say, and how useful they are vs spammy)
Can't These commands be in the SL com rose (T) or is there no room for them there? This commands should only be available for the leaders too avoid spam. But as you say, these commands come in second hand. But it would be fun if it worked, even if the squad only obeyed one out off ten times.
You can have whatever messages you want in those spots around the com-rose. In either regular of SL, but the number of spots is hardcoded. So its a question of what messages are the most important. And is there any spots left for Formation messages. You need more than one spot, unless you only want one formation. So it would take up some valuable spots. Theres only one way it might be able to work, and thats to use the menu thing in the middle normally used for spotting stuff by name. Since spotting is much different in FH2, that menu wont be used, so that menu is free for something else.
save the devs the problem of programming something most ppl wont even know it exists and whenever you tell some squad mate to form up he'll probably just not listen and go somewhere else(as usual)... you know how hard it is to get 3 of your squad mates to finally put a rally point in PR mod, they're like bots... nah just kidding, bots are smarter...
well I say, start using battle commo and u can tell your squad yourself=)
