Well jedi, you know me from the days I was playing so you know I have always been more of a scrummer than a TBM-player. Never really thought of a sneak-zone because of that :) . I fully agree with you that the back-part blends in better with the lush-terrain colors than the front. This can be explained (as you said) by the orange that 'encases' the green-front that is already somewhat brighter than the back-part.

In my opinion that is exactly what a radar should do, blend in. While in-game I don't only want to look on my radar, but on occasion also through it (ie: standing on a hill overlooking the map).

In general:
If anyone has any problems with the colors (colorblindness!) please contact me and I ll make a special version with the colors you like. Please note that I will share it with everyone and that it wont be a "personal radar" :)

EDIT:
Please note that this radar is part of a bigger project to enhance visibility in game.

Thanks for the kind words 00E and Daz.

The only issue with the radar is that the area that you actually see is not exactly right. It would be if it was a first person game, but this is third person so that is different.

Glad you people like it!

Just remembered about this thread, and I thought I'd pop in and say that it really is a big help once I got used to it.

Btw, any current projects you're working on along these lines?

Nope nothing, had no ideas nor any suggestions worth pursuing. Also, I am playing warhammer online again so that takes up a lot of spare time.

Still, all ideas are welcome.

I installed yours and when I saw it ingame it was the size of the small original one... :?

Is there something I can do? (It looked kinda pixelated from resizing)
