Independent Radar & Panel sizing

Post by Dutchrai » Wed Jun 07, 2006 3:47 pm

Personally I prefer to drive with a large radar since I use this window at least 90% of the time. 360 Degrees of glorious battle in your eyeballs!
However, a large radar obviously means a large panel. Now THAT I don't want. Who wants to see 15-20 lines of text while driving? 3 to 5 would be more reasonably.

So, at the moment, I keep using the W key to turn the panel on, turn it off, turn it on...sigh.

Independent radar and panel sizing would completely solve this problem.

Ladies and Gentlemen...your votes please!

Great workaround to the problem. I like large radar also, but the chat window gets in the way. I'll have to start doing that.

Would be great... or you could change a transparency-value of the console. So you could make it nearly invisible but you could still read what's going on.

But that would compromise your radar image as well, plus there is still this clearly to be read text on 1/3 of the screen.

I like the radar how it is because I hate having big blocks (the tanks) on my radar when I play.
