The Rising looks a pretty cool mod and I’ll definitely be reviewing it for me new website but one thing that struck me was the overlay maps.
I know it’s a multiplayer mod but it got me thinking why mods include them. I can’t decide if I like them or not. It kinda breaks the immersion and definitely spoils the fun of exploring but if the layout is that complicated that I need a map, maybe it’s not my kind of mod.
That said, it’s nice to have different features, although I’d like to see it as an inventory item and viewed in the same way a weapon is, via my hand holding it. It would be pretty cool to select the map like a weapon and have my hand reach to the side and flick out the map and then flick it back again.
Anyway, how do you feel about these kinds of maps?
