Great idea, Pardner. I would like to see how that works on the game, eventhou its completly out of context. I mean, if we are trying to make things realistic, makes no sense for a cowboy to simply know where his friends are, and if they got the moneybag, since they have no communication at all. This works better for modern FPSs, in which players have electionic comunication with others (radars, earphones/microphones, GPS, and localizers). I believe we have a very realistic communication system in SG: the gesture
Most guys dont use it, but we SDEs used it a lot in the old times, when we were improving our teamplay strategies. Perhaps we could implement more gestures, besides the "come here" one.
