3rd person View
« on: January 19, 2010, 03:10:45 PM »
I know this is a very touchy subject. but here goes...........

I am a third person view mode player. I played all the mech games in that view & no i didn't have much of an advantage other than my view area. My use of it was purely for torso/body alignment by sight & the enjoyment of watching my weapons firing. I am not suggesting it be like Mercs, but maybe just above the top of the mech without the ability to view freely other than your mechs turn position ot torso twist position. Thus giving no advantage of sight, just a different view.

I am however trying to get used to playing on inside of a mech. My only issue is that the torso-body Alignment hud is really weird. It would be better if it was redone with like a mini 3d mech that showed your position in 3d?

Whats needed is a torso twist indicator near the reticle. I don't have that many if any problems with the torso alignment, but I've played 1st person for a long time. You'll get used to it. The mod hasn't even been out for a month yet.
