Sign's for orientation

Recommended Posts

To a better orientating, especially in big, multiple connectet caves, it would be fine when we can place signs, where we can write a text of our choice.

This could be produced in our backback with compound, resin or another simple material.

I think there can be on of two options: one sign for one material, or like with theters, a small number or them.

It would be great when we can place this on ground and / or on walls, write a text inside, and more better, if we can choice which design it have (simply square or with an arrow to rigth, left, top or down) and much more better, which color, to make a difference between sections or something else, like on airports or hospitals.

The text must not be readable in the normal walking mode, but when you hover your mouse over it.

IIRC people requested signs every now and then, but you're providing a decent visualization.
Either way, being someone who likes to dig through caves rather than building skybridges, I'd be very excited for signs eventually making it into the game! It's just too easy to get lost if you start going through really large cave systems without leaving any special markings behind. And signs would be a lot easier to handle than coloring or deforming terrain in an indicative way.

Even the work lights could be used as markers if they had different colors, like red going to another level, green way out, yellow etc

I typically drop my tethers consistently on the right side of tunnels while I'm exploring.  This way, when I want to go back to the surface I just need to make sure the tethers stay my left side.  However, the addition of signs would be wonderful.

I registered here just to ask for signs and discovered others want them too. I've been wanting signs ever since I started creating underground tunnels, just like what's in the original post. Being able to leave signs as needed would be helpful for both single- and multi-player.

I was thinking of something like this, perhaps a config on the tethers, something like an optional arrow with coulorcoding

Yup, signs would be great!

As an input, maybe signs could be almost holographic. A unit you place on the ground like a beacon (or maybe beacons could have multiple setting options.) You click on the Unit on the ground and a "menu" system (much like the displays of fabricators, vehicle printers, etc.) opens. This allows you to change the text, functionality, etc. of said unit (or beacon). Thus displaying up a holographic text.

That’s a good idea... I’ll try that soon!
