@arma473 speaking of multipronged attacks on the senses; is there a way to add a visual que for a strategic launch? Sometimes I play without sound.
It probably wouldn't be too difficult to mod the game to always send a chat message whenever the "strategic launch detected" sound plays
If you made a mod like that (1) you might want to give a different chat message based on whether it's a teammate or an enemy firing the nuke. I don't think that would be "cheating" because you can already tell this, if you have sound, based on whether there is a "ping" or not. I think it even would be fair to give the name of the teammate who fired the nuke, in the chat message (because it is knowable who issued a ping). But obviously not the name of the enemy.
and (2) you would need to be careful not to give extra info, such as the number of nukes. If 4 missiles launch at the same time, you should only get 1 chat message. If the mod told you the number of missiles that launched, I do think that would be "cheating" because it would give an unfair advantage.
And if there was some custom visualization of a nuke launch, like a picture that shows up on the screen, that would be cool too. But I think the way to go is to start with a pure chat-based mod, and then once people get that working with no bugs, consider moving to a different notification method.
