So the friendly targeting isn't new, but I don't want to necro that hard.

Please let us target friendly units, it would especially make QP a lot easier. No ppl don't coordinate their builds over voip, and those who try are prone to getting muted. A percentage is nice, but it would be so much better to see in what kind of trouble your mate is exactly. Support mechs could find a buddy that synergizes well with them.

What's the problem here? Are you afraid of lock-on griefing? Ppl can criminally gauss-vomit their buddies leg off as is.

The other Mechwarrior titles had it, and that was just for your bots... And now I wanted to make a point how your human teammates are way more valuable, but your mileage may vary there.

Is it shaming? Are you afraid ppl will trash-talk others for their builds? Well, they already do, abundantly so.

Why? Please, I need to understand! Why?

Oh, and it would be ever so awesome, if we could customize our hud colors, even assign different colors for different elements. You'd give ppl yet another reason to buy colors, and I'm sure color blind folks would dig it too.

I'll give these ideas a big...


...because I can see an awesome situation where you Target & Missile Lock on a Friendly Light Mech, but have them positioned so that the Enemy Mech gets all the damage instead. Fun shenanigans, all with no cost to your Teammate except you and them having to shift a little to keep the Missile Arc in a proper state. Plus being able to check your Teammates and keep their Weak Spots from being the death of them is worthwhile in terms of Team Survival too. B)

And yeah, I've had times when I want the HUD Color to be one style without regard to whether I'm in an I.S. or Clan Mech... It seems like my old UT'99 Days keep coming back to nostalgically haunt my mind, making me yearn for things that have been lost to time itself. :mellow:
