Hi ya first off i cant wait to get some good wwII action on the BF2 game engine, keep up the fantastic work so far :bows: My idear although not need for game play would add a cool look well imo how about having rank linked with what class you play, this would add a nice touch to the battlefield in motion and at a glance u could tell who was a medic, officer, Gunner etc etc example Assault / rifleman / Scout- no rank icon Medic - Lance Corporal Anti Tank - Corporal Gunner - Sergeant Sapper - Staff Sergeant Commander - Major Sqaud 1 Leader - Captain Sqaud 2 - 1st Lieutenant Squad 3 & 4 - 2nd Lieutenant All other Sqauds Leaders - Sergeant Major to Gunnery Sergant or whatever ranks you guys feels right for what class and If you could do custom rank symbols for the british / german / other armys that would be even better if its possible ( could even have us FH2 readers doing the little icons gives us something to do :p ) anyway its just an idear any feedback is most welcome even if its what you :smokin:
Edit: i did do a search but couldnt find anything
I like it!
I dont like it... I want real ranks without stats... Time ranking or Win/loose ranking!! :D
I'd rather see no ranking at all, but I would prefer elstonieo way of ranks per class over earning ranks trough combat.
Hmmmm... sounds like an interesting idea. Since each class is going to have a different looks, adding different shoulder patches shouldn't be a problem. It might be already implemented, I dont know much about german ranks but check this out:
It looks like they have different ranks, but again, I dont know much about ranks

i LIKE THE IDEA, ALOT OF GAME FEATURES RANKS ON THE CHARACTERS BUT ITS NOT ACTUALLY LINKED TO ANY SPECIFC THING, MAYBE fh2 COULD BE THE FIRST. Sorry caps was on.
Hell RangerHmmmm... sounds like an interesting idea. Since each class is going to have a different looks, adding different shoulder patches shouldn't be a problem.
although i didnt mean having the ranks in this way its also a great idear ;) now im woundering if the officer classes are going to have a different player models :)

dont forget that you have to make more skins for adding different shoulder patches
@blackcat As I originally understood, the topic starter wanted to give different classes different ranks, i.e. while playing medic you would be a Lance Corporal and if you switced to support, you would be a Sarge. Therefor no extra skins would be required. However this is not what Elstonieo had in mind. I take it that you wanted the rank to be set according to your favourite class/vechile? That (although a very cool idea) would require an extra stat tracking server, who will pay for that? And, as Blackcat pointed out, it would require extra skins. (I dont know much about coding but wouldn't these skins be mostly "copy-paste" though? )
