I think it would be nice if there were some sort of friends list that would maybe change the color of your friend’s nametag over their head, and maybe give you some more range on how far you can see it. Currently you literally have to be staring down the other person’s shotgun before it even comes up. I’ve lost track of how many times me and my friends will either get killed because we assumed the guy to the side of us was the other, or we ended up killing the other because some guy starts beating one of us down and we can’t keep track of who to hit (both naked).
I understand that the paranoia is part of the game, but it’s starting to have a negative effect. I’ll run out into a field and start gathering resources, then the next thing I know I’m getting shot at by my neighbor because some other naked guy killed them, then the chain of retaliation and raiding starts.
