Hi guys!

 

Small update from the Dev blog today: 

 

Hydro and Radar range will now be on the minimap, I know that was a much anticipated update, and it'll be nice to have that visual indicator for it.

 

Thanks to @renegadestatuz for notifying me about the article.

 

Fair winds and following seas captains! :Smile_honoring:

An actual radius circle instead of having to turn on my AA range circles and guesstimate?  :cap_like:

How about letting the victims know who shined the death ray on them? :)

I can't wait for this addition.   If they put the radar/hydro circle out there, it'll be cool to have a center point labeled:  send torps here!  

 

Either way if there is a circle to show the boundary of detection, then you can easily home in on the cheater--- er i mean radarist.

I'm going to have to pare down my minimap, then, as I have everything switched on and adding another layer would make it quite cluttered.

Oh nice, this is a change I've been hoping for for some time now.  :cap_like:

If ONLY they would allow us to assign colors with an option to make the color BOLD.... ah, be still my heart... but it shall never be, for it is too logical.

I'm still hoping they'll eventually display all active radars on the minimap, so people can tell when it's up, and using it reveals the general location of your ship. I particularly think this will be handy for balancing the PA DDs if they do indeed keep the radar.

For the "realism" fans: Something something strong signal detected.

Pointless change to me, but much faster than manually checking distance via sighting, so it'll help most players.

Will only show the base range of hydro or hydro plus vigilance?

I'm pretty sure it is just for ship spotting distance, so it'll only be the max ship range.

I've had this info on my minimap for a while, I believe.  Using a mod from Aslain's pack.  

 

You do mean for your own ship, correct?
