update notes:

 

- Players in Tanks will now show as such with a specific Tank icon on the Minimap.

 

at least you have a warning

Update was worth it just for this and the 'auto show helmet' thing.

Exactly. These two things were up there on the list of features/changes I wanted.

I mean, tanks are still overpowered and BS, but at least now they can be mostly avoided. I'd prefer we have a more convenient way of dealing with them, with all the other DLC they keep giving us, but I guess this will do.

Found this on another forum. A little difficult to see in the pic, but should be easy enough to distinguish at a glance in game:

This is a good thing, I did like hiding down an alley in a tank when I had a bounty on me and surprising bounty hunters, but that's about the only thing I used it for.

Still much rather see players on foot have the option for stealth....

 

Given that a huge issue the tank had was that all it had to do was aim in the approxinate direction of your blip and your likely dead.

 

Same with blips in general. I a good percentage of my deaths are down to blips giving away my location. Players can chase me into an area and know exactly which car ive taken cover behind even if they lost sight of me its stupid.

Thank Christ, I suggested this a long time ago, glad to see it finally happen.

 

I spent a good chunk of time hunting for a 4 door Felon, FINALLY found one and was on my way to LSC when suddenly I just exploded. Someone was hiding off radar in a tank at LSC. Couldn't get another Felon to spawn for days.

I very much approve of this - now all we need is a jet icon for a player in a jet...unless

they've already added this at same time?

Gone are the days of driving out of the Police Station at Vespucci, slowly, pretending I'm in a tank and watching the blips disperse :(

 

Now are the days of jet domination! No longer will be have to multiple fly-by just to spot which blip is the tank :D

No invincible Zentorno blip then?

 

Apparently there's no invincible Zentornos any more, so no.

I agree at least the tank wont get lost in the blips, so maybe mounting a defense or running like hell will be easier

 

Really?

 

I have no seen a Tank in Freeroam in over 2 months...

damn, here lately it seems every lobby i hit everyone but me own a damn tank

Definatly worth it. Finally the tank drivers can be avoided. They must have cost me thousands for the destroyed cars and deaths.
