Small update for you all… Friend location will be up and running shortly. Before I release it, I need to do a bit of debugging to ensure nothing wonky happens. I’m hoping to set up some time tomorrow to test it out. And hopefully a build by tomorrow night-ish.
Essentially there is now a new tab (Friends) at the top of Rusty Navigator, which will allow you to view your friends who are also using Rusty Navigator. This will help if you want to organize a group or clan in-game.
Now I’ve tackled this a unique way, Essentially anyone can create a “Clan” or “Group”, password it, and make your location visible to all your friends/clan members across a server.
Group/Clan Name: Unique “Room” Identifier.
UserName: What you want to display as your name on the map.
Password: The password to the “Room”
Once these fields are populated, whenever you are on a server where a friend has the same shared Group/Password combination, you will see their current/last location. I think its pretty neat…
Due to the nature of this, location updates happen every 10-15 seconds or so, but for what it is I think this will be very sufficient.
