[ADDED]Return of the Old Announcement
« on: November 20, 2017, 11:42:59 pm »
I would like the return of the old announcement, so it would compliment the current one. The old one could be /ann and the new/current one could be /ann2. Instead of replacing and removing features, we should add more. The main problem with the current one is that certain words and letters, like 1 and I look exactly the same. This is unacceptable when it comes to events. And modding the game with custom fonts makes the game look like shit and kills the atmosphere of Vice City. Its not just me who is voicing their concerns, but I also speak on behalf of a handful of other administrators regarding this issue.

Completely agree with Ratchet on this one.  It should be noted that the player who made the suggestion to change the announcement in the first place is somebody who uses visual mods, so it doesn't affect them, but for players like myself who are running vanilla VC, some letters and characters look too similar.  I also feel like the font size is too small.

I would also like to mention that players with a killing spree can't see the announcement because the killing spree message is blocking the announcement message on the screen.

As much of the staff is arguing on the new ann function..Let me speak my opinions:

The old ann was better than the new one..I started to miss announcements from the respective admins when the new ann function was announced.(I still miss announcements).
So,replacing the new ann function with the old one would be a better choice(Speaking from many administrator's side)..

So that means our gameplay will be completely interrupted by texts once again.

there reason of new announcement to not spoil gameplay of people who dont not wants any events. Let them just play without those texts on the screen.

or /ignoreann <on/off> as player settings as an alternative.
