QUESTION - With proposed allowances to customize your Mech's look, it may not be possible to conform all Mechs that belong to a team to the same visual style (previous games forced skin colors, ie, Red vs. Blue). So how the LOS/D system work to identify a Mech as Friend/Foe? Does the HUD play a role here?
Along this line. Will pilots be broadcasting there callsign for indentification purposes? And perhaps a way of gaining some fame/notoriety throughout the Inner Sphere? (Man, "pilot X" is a crack shot with that PPC.)
Also. How detailed will the thermal detection be? Will we see a generic signature for a Mech? Or will there be ways to garner more detailed information? Such as: That barrel on the right arm is white hot. I'll bet that's a PPC not an Autocannon. That Mech is running particularly hot. Now's a good time to shower it with some Inferno rounds or a Flamer or two. Things of that sort.
