Acid Type Indicator (Low Priority)

Post by SPACEpotato1 » 22 Dec 2016, 07:44

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): Very simple, basically, when playing the sentinel class, specifically T2 and 3, there will be an indicator on the status screen (Or perhaps the screen, but the status tab just seems easier) that tells you what type of acid you're using, rather than having to switch between the two

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole): Small QOL for those playing spitters and what not.

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc): Pretty much what I said in the summary.

Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it): lolno

I often found myself clicking the button to see what type of spit do i have, so that instead of aciding that marine, i will neurotoxin him, especially since it costs 20 plasma to actually switch

It'd kind of be easier to have a small recoloring in the sprite as a way to indicate what acid type you're using. But regardless +1
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

+1. It'd be nice if I didn't have to switch spit type to know which spit type I'm using.
