When you get a health box, a positive number in green shows above your tank. We should do the same thing with air support boxes as well.

When you get an air support box it would say that you are deploying the certain aircraft. If you are deploying an aircraft, the text will be blue, like the aircraft icon's color on the air support box. Logically the color of text would be green when deploying a helicopter, due to the corresponding reason.

Here is the exact text that would show:

Deploying Aircraft! (In blue)

Deploying Helicopter! (In green)

I thought of this idea on the 22nd. So I couldn't post it then. But as I read Flamethrower's new proposal, these can go hand and hand. When you get an air support box, the commander would say the same thing. This would also help when there is a situation where you are not sure who got the box because say you got to the box at the same time as the other player did. So, if you got it you would here your commander say that you did, and the opposite would be true.

But, I'm not done yet. We could connect this with the upgrade bought radio as well. When you get the air support box, the commander would say it over the radio to your team as well. But, if you don't have the radio you can't communicate with your team. This would encourage players to buy radios as well. Hopefully the radio itself will be improved itself as well, as the quality isn't very good.

This feature could also be used with previously proposed support features, like airstrikes and satellite scans. With all of these connections of the features just this minor edit, not including other previous proposals, greatly improve the Tanktastic gameplay, and I am very happy to think of it.

I don't think that would be necessary. They all currently, at least they should, act the same. So it wouldnt matter what the aircraft was. Too much space would be taken up as well. Players shouldn't have their sight hindered by some text like bushes and walls.

I am quite concerned this is my first day and I am trying to be as respectful as I can, but don't you think that is a little too aggressive?

Actually, you're correct. You should have seen the last guy who did that. His name was germanleader.

You can't get to his profile?

Exactly.

He's probably mad after I destroyed- ahem, debated him on whether the the current unbalanced tanks in the game right now are actually unbalanced or not.
