Colourable Dot Reticule
« on: January 25, 2019, 11:24:18 am »
Hi there all!

As some of you may know, it is possible to disable the default crosshair so that the recticule you use during aiming is the same dot as in the non-aimed view. This is handy for a lot of players including myself as it gives you a more precise reticule as opposed to the default crosshairs where you have to guess the centre somewhat.

With the ability to customise crosshairs recently being introduced, would it be possible to allow us to change the colour of the dot also? Whilst the dot is very good on public, softcore servers, the fact that it's white can make it nigh impossible to find the reticule when aiming against a white background (eg. Snowy Plains, Fort Christina).

If we were able to colour the dot the same as the normal reticules this would help immensely!

Best regards,

Rex

Need to agree. Sometimes, just for immersion for example, its fun to have only a dot in the middle.

Maybe 2 additional crosshairs. Default with a dot in the middle, and just a colourable dot in the middle.

Aye, i thought of that some time ago too. Would give you all the advantages of the dot whilst also giving you all the advantages of the crosshair.

I have a better idea, let's remove reticules.

I asked this question a few months back. I've become accustomed to finding the white reticule against white backgrounds when my eyes are fresh. But after about 90 mins of playing and/or smashing a few cans that damned white dot get's incredibly elusive. I'm not going to pretend that I know what work creating colour dot reticules requires but i'd think it would be less than what they've already done with the full reticules.

Perhaps the dev team recognises that the dot is slightly superior and they are nerfing it by keeping it white?
