I just watched few gameplay videos of Holdfast and I noticed, there will be mini map in bottom left corner. I hope there will be option for server admins to put mini map off, or on. Reason why I don't like this mini map idea is that, it absolutely kills any kind of surprise attacks and makes use of terrain completly useless.
Hey! We can certainly include a server side option. Right now, you can disable the entire minimap from your game settings.
Enemy players on the minimap can only be seen when they shoot with their firearm and it only lasts for a very short while. We're very open to change this of course.
I agree......admins should have that option. So you can not see even your teammates on the minimap.
I completly agree with it.
I think it could work like, for example, in Red orchestra, where there are servers with "realistic" setting and more "arcade" settings. Or something like that. But I think just toggle button for server admins to turn mini map off for all players would be enough. Because nothing can be compared to that feeling, when you think that allied line is behind you to support you, but when you get into combat, you found yourself surrounded from all sides and your allied line is nowhere to be found. Then, when you lose all hope, friendly cavalry will appear to save you. At least, that is my experience from M&B:NW.
