Red Ring on map visible even on harder difficultys
Closed, ResolvedPublic


hello, i would like to be able to turn off the red ring on the map, showing me within what area i am.

because of the reason, when doing orientation, without nothing but a clock/compass/map, and a random spawn location, i would like to not being able to see where i am at all on the map. (there is enough of terrain features to let me locate my location fast anyways) with all the antennas and stuff like that.

That might be included in a mission's scripting, not BI's. Wait for an official statement from either the mission creators or a developer though.

Yeah should be linked to the GPS, but as it is now it shows even without it :(


Remove the ring even with GPS at least on Veteran. I am capable of spending additional 0.5 secs peeking at coordinates on GPS

Keep ring on Veteran if GPS is present, but have option to disable it in difficulty settings, as per this ticket:
