Okay, to test for server crashes we've removed Hit Marker Numbers Addon. However, some players want it back in, but others don't.
So, here's how we're going to do it. If Yes gets 70%-80% then we'll add it back in.

What is the Hit Marker Numbers addon? Every time the server registers damage dealt to another player, the damage pops out. So if you hit them, it will tell you how much damage you dealt. It doesn't spam the chat because it shows it on the opposing player's body. Basically a really nice damage indicator addon that doesn't lag or have any other harmful aspects to the server.

Pros:
You can tell how much damage you do.
You can tell if you even hit them.
Tactical advantage.
Really cool to have.
YOU CAN DISABLE IT BY YOURSELF WITH A CONSOLE COMMAND

Cons:
"UnRP like" (Unrealistic)
Annoying
Laggy (Not really, but some claim it to be)

I actually think it would be better to not have it, simply because if you hit someone you can look at their health and do some quick mathematics, but when you have it, you can tell that someone just got reduced to 12 hp after sniping them, but you shouldn't be able to see their health. For people who need exact numbers, I think it is best to know how many body, or head shots you'll need with a gun before they're dead, that is, without armor.

-Edit* Sniping as in, you're too far to actually see their health and probably using a sniper where you scope and will be able to see that number pop out.

Well, if that really bugs you, you can disable it and RP with it that way, however, to address your opinion, we'll postpone acting upon this until more votes have been added. We were originally going to add it back in tonight. We'll see how the community feels. Thanks for your feedback.

I don't understand why you don't want them back in.

There is a server command that I can issue that will disable the addon...as well as clientside commands to disable/edit the addon to YOUR liking, as well as a highly customizable serverside editing tool that allows us to change EVERYTHING. Instead of showing numbers, we can just make it say Hit! just to let people know you hit them.

The HIT idea is actually really good, also, I wouldn't be upset if it was in, but I would prefer if it wasn't; mostly for RP reasons, I can't say it irks me or anything. It just allows people to do what they realistically shouldn't be able to do. For example, if you have a high powered pistol like the Desert Eagle, you should be able to assume the amount of damage you're going to do, and if you're close enough, you can SEE how much damage you did. If you are too far away to see the HP, you shouldn't know that they are actually at 90hp and you've been hitting them in the foot, that should be your analyse and you should determine how much damage you did based on more obvious things, rather exact numbers.

Well, keep in mind here is where armor comes into play. If you're far away and you snipe someone, you can tell how much damage you did, but you don't know how much armor and hp, or even if they even have armor.

I'm pretty sure that if someone is using armor the numbers still show, but they aren't necessarily correct, so people would have to make assumptions anyway, which is why I didn't really mention armor. Though, I think most people, or the common raider usually doesn't have armor, but people in more organized gangs or groups look more 'geared', so you can usually guess who has armor and who doesn't. I do remember when I first started playing though, we were getting raided by a couple of guys and I was down the street sniping, and looking at the numbers, I killed them; I didn't know about armor and thus the hp I thought they should be at wasn't the same as it really was at. I'm not trying to convince you to side with me though, your opinion is yours, keep it. Other people should vote on this poll, it is like 50/50 I think, not sure if you include yourself in this poll.

I actually use the addon when I'm playing on sandbox, I think it'd be extremely useful and since it can be disabled client-side, nobody gets annoyed(?).

(I also like the pretty flying numbers and colours...)
