A useful little app to help improve your MWO teamwork experience!
Hey guys. So last night it was decided that I would create an interactive windows application that visually and chronologically depicts the specific strategies that our competitive line up has determined to be the best options for us in competitive matches.
The program will be available to all OMC MWO members upon it's completion, and access to the program is already password protected. We kindly ask that you do not share the program with non-OMC players as doing so would expose much of our competitive strategy to 3rd parties which would not be good! We're putting a lot of time and effort into this, after all.
- All player mechs will be represented on the map at all times, their anticipated movements, present objectives, weapon loadout and a visual representation of their effective range, as well as current theoretical line-of-site to all grid references on the map. All of this information will be available simply by clicking on the relevant player blip on the map.
- Playback of the simulation will be controllable (play, pause, set time, etc) much like a youtube clip.
- Grid references will be selectable for additional details regarding their cover potential & direction, current LOS relative to team player positions and any anticipated enemy movement.
- More info to come!
WANT TO HELP?
If you would like to assist in the development of the tool, let me know. I'll be handling all of the programming myself, but any good ideas, graphics assistance, etc is appreciated. As for strategy ideas & such, I'd recommend bringing them up with Cerb and Grim as these plans are being formulated mostly by them at this stage, but input is welcome.
Cheers guys! I'll post up some in-development shots soon.
