Compass marker change
« on: October 23, 2015, 09:57:09 PM »
I have been on many worlds where there are way to many markers showing up on the compass to find any one place.
It should be limited to a radius like it is with players.
The exception to the radius would be way points.
This would cut down on a lot of the clutter on the compass and make finding things on a world much easier than it is now.
Also if it stays like it is now when larger worlds come out you could end up with a compass that is a solid bar of markers.
Growing old is inevitable but growing up is optional.

Maybe have it so some markers are visible to certain people, like the chat when you set a marker the menu will come up "visible to everyone, admins, clan" for a reason i wouldn't want the enemy clan to see where i marked my base, but my clan does
What am i even talking about

You should start a idea topic for clan markers and note that if this idea gets added that clan markers would be seen no mater how far away you are from it. But just choosing who can see markers is not the answer to this problem as Markers are there so we can find where we want to go and if we arn't close to it we can set a way point from the map.

A radius would be perfect for compass markers. I personally have yet to have an issue with them clogging up my compass, but I'm sure it happens. Perhaps while we're on the topic of the compass, we could get some symbols for locations, too? Like the ones in Skyrim.

Please disregard the red circles, I just got the image from google.
