'Phone Alerts' / Minimap Popups

Recommended Posts

I'd like to see a lot of redundant and reviewable information moved to a minimap popup notification ('phone alerts') and out of the chat box. This includes anything that you can view using other systems or information that can be viewed by command. These are temporary messages that pop up and show you information, but they can't be reviewed again, so these are best for messages that can be viewed further with other tools, devices or commands, like the phone, MDC or others.

The following list are IC messages that are viewable elsewhere and can be viewed initially via Minimap message instead of in chat, helping to clear up the chat box (especially for some people).

Here is a script system for rage that could help make this happen https://rage.mp/files/file/34-better-notifications/. I will be writing a lot of the lines based on this.

+1 the idea is amazing. Before also the message we use to get in phone use to show in INFO in chat box but now after new phone update it is also gone.

Ask them to make APP for weazel news so that we can go through the news all the time. Instead of wasting money on weazel newspaper which is i think total waste.
