Names do not appear above people's heads

Post by Teletric on Mon Nov 26, 2012 5:05 am

It's really convenient how people MAGICALLY know your name. It doesn't make sense how people know my name just by looking at the top of my head. Here is what I think; Names do not appear on people's heads.
Maybe if police want to make someone wanted, they get a special item called "ID Finder" which when used on a person, it shows the CP the suspect's name.
This makes it tricky for hitmen too!
It is really metagame if people know my name by looking at my head, and you cannot stop that unless you remove the names from appearing on people's heads.

i vote no, just because its easier te recognise a person.

if someone saw a gangster failrp'ing or fearrp'ing, then how would they know wich of all 8 gangsters/mobsters it was?

admins can watch the log, but i bet they dont stare at it the whole time they are on the server

on another note: it would improve the roleplaying

k, so. If someone kills one of my gang members, and all I know about him is he wears a red shirt, that means I'll have to look out for the guy in the red shirt. If he changes his clothes or job well then I'm outta luck. However, if I get his name, that entices me to exact revenge. And the SCT isn't very clean in revenge operations. I think the last guy who killed one of mine was shot up with 3 AK's and a Pump action.

On a different concern I have a problem with names, to where, If I look at someone, it wont exactly show their name. But then If I start looking to the right slowly, I see their name, can this be fixed? But Back on subject, this isn't Half life rp or something, where you have to meet people, its serious rp. I personaly don't think this would have any benefit, unless we change the whole game mode itself to, lets say, HL2RP.

9/10 times admins will use console logs to find propkillers, at least for me anyway

People write ban requests when admins arent on, so how do you expect them to find the minges name and ID if they cant just see it by placing their crosshair on the minge? Removing those names would result in many minges getting away cause no one can be bothered to get their names as it would be too difficult if they remove their props.

Tab doesn't show who propkilled you, Tab doesn't show who Propspammed until the server crashed, Tab doesnt tell you who just went on an rdm spree either.

^ and due to new retarded tab screen, you cant get to their steam id (Or so i find) through tab, and so ban requests become more difficult without access to logs/

Indeed, change would just cause confusion, and we'd have to go back to the old way sometime anyway.

You could find their name in tab, then go to the console and type "status" and get their ID, that's how I always do it.
