Hide Names

Post by ChiefScotty420 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 6:35 pm

Not sure if this is controlled by Contractor Mod, or is in an in-game MP setting but.... is there a way to hide the floating names above other characters heads? I am using Contractor mod with 4 workers total and it's annoying seeing the huge, bright green names floating above them. Any way to disable? The code in the mod itself only seems to control the size of the HUD name in top right, not the actual floating names.
PC. Modded. Still holding my breath for soilmod....

Hello,

ContractorMod is using players like in MP (on FS19) so displaying name is managed by the game engine.
But it might be possible to disable it. I can have a look when I have time.
I'll open an issue on GitHub

If you have the console enabled in game you can enter the gsToggle command that enables fly mode and gives you the option to turn the hud on or off. This command also has the uncanny side effect of disabling player names and also works in multiplayer to disable names over other players. So although I don't actually use that command to fly about or turn the hud on or off, it is very useful for hiding player and worker names.

Hello,

I have delivered code for this request (https://github.com/yumi-modding/FS17_Co ... /issues/70)
You can try it by downloading the udpated mod (click on Download here https://github.com/yumi-modding/FS17_Co ... torMod.zip) if you don't want to wait for modhub validation and publication.
As you can see in the commit (https://github.com/yumi-modding/FS17_Co ... 0659b4b139), you need to add this line to ContractorMod.xml file to hide the name

Code: Select all

<playerName displayPlayerNames="false" />
For existing savegame, change ContractorMod.xml file in your savegame folder. For new game, change ContractorMod.xml file in modsSetting directory.
