Country Tag
« on: August 17, 2006, 11:35:39 am »
I thought this would be a cool idea.

In the 'Player' tab (where you configure controls and stuff), I there could be a place where you ould type the name of your country (or select it from a dropdown list).

For Example:

Name:                                       Country:
[ Bond, James Bond |Panda| ]  [ United States ]

Then, when in game, when you press F1, the country flag would appear next to their name, or something like that.

A similar feature could be added for clans?

So, when you F1:

Name                      Clan       Country:  Points, scores, ping ,etc
Bond, James Bond  |Panda|  USA

Lol, screenshot? But a good idea nonetheless. It would give extra space for people in the names.

But then again I live on "mars" or "the dustbin".

Or just "noob"

And if its a drop-down list then I afraid they don't list my country. I mean the list might not list every single country.

Pretty neat idea. I like it. You could just have a whole bunch of graphics in one folder called "flags" and then people online figure out which flag by selecting their country and then Soldat just using a number say 0-999. That way new flags and countries can be added seperately of Soldat updates.

ooh, nice screen Eagles.

This could be especially useful for the SWC and Soldat Events

It would have to be IP based. Soldat doesn't have a player registration system to all that.

No, it couldnt.


This option should be selectable, but registered people get to have "other" flags, like pirate ones, rainbow ones, the red/blue/white/black ones that are in soldat
