Naming FOBS Stupid Idea Nr. 568

Recommended Posts

Just a stupid thing to make orientation easier and make tons of dickjokes, allow the squadleader who places a fob to name it. It would allow people to make proper navigational remarks about fobs instead of just saying "Spawn in C4 fob" and just say "Spawn at FOB rogers left nipple" or "Spawn at Towers". It doesn't add anything so feel free to hate on it, just want to get it out of my idea before it becomes a tumour.

 

So to sum it up:

Pros:

  • Better orientation
  • No more "spawn grid fob"
  • creativity
  • injokes
  • roleplaying for neets

 

Cons:

  • *** jokes galore
  • doesnt add anything what are you talking about this is useless burn in hell.

Pretty sure FOB naming was planned at one point. No idea what the status is.

While not a neccesary thing needed to enjoy the game, it does however add flavour and is relatively cheap on labour time and performance hogging. And it makes the world feel lived in instead of just being a blank canvas for us to shell to oblivion.

It would kind of be hilarious... but yeah..

Passing it along to the UI -- I do like the idea of using existing points of interest to help communication a lot. Should be a good addition to the "after 1.0" list. =)

I remember when suggested having the names of point of interest in the map although there was no flag on them...as a reference...and some people didn´t like it.

Do you think the´ve changed their minds???

FOB names could be generated fairly easily. Take the POI its nearest and then throw a direction on it. So like "Tunnel Entrance East FOB" or something
