New blip system killed online.

^ yeah I thought I was blue because some geezer told me the camp icon color was the same as your blip color.

But asked a friendly random I was fishing with, he told me it was red.

Just noticed that if you pull up the players list in a session it'll show which names are in red, purple, or blue, including your own.

I've never noticed my name showing up as red after I killed a player who was himself red. He was coming straight at me so I killed him and got a bounty, yet my name on the list was unchanged. Are you sure that the player list shows your own status? That was a little while back so I'm unsure. Haven't killed a player since then so that's why I'm asking..

I don't think the player list shows your blip color. There's been a couple instances when I've had to take some low-level griefers to town and my username still comes up blue in the list.

There is no way y looking at the player list to see your own colour blip Neither does your camp icon reflect your colour, The only way is to ask other players/friends what colour your blip is

Would it be correct to assume that if you have a bounty then you're red?

From my experience, no.

 

To clarify, neither me or my buddy turned red from killing each other for daily pvp challenges, this with each of us getting 3+ kills on each other and having few bounties we then had to pay off.

Thanks for the answer. I play with voice chat & mic off cuz I love to listen to the game on my sound system, so I've no way of knowing. I suppose then that if you kill other players you're red, and that it clears to blue when you pay the bounty maybe? I hope they plan on giving us a way to know for sure at some point. I don't kill many players though so it isn't too much of a problem for me.

I'm assuming it's a buildup with different actions (such as killing a player vs killing an npc vs killing livestock etc etc) having a different value that raises your status gradually to red (after first turning purple) similar to how it is in GTAO. If it is similar then I'm also assuming that going back to blue is a gradual decline from not doing "bad things" over time but I really have no idea and have heard someone mention that joining a new session clears it so who knows how it actually works.

 

But yeah our minimap blip/icon should represent our color for the players own reference, like how it already is in GTAO.

I like how effective the blips make snipers. Getting shot out of nowhere, without seeing who did it - it's a more authentic experience of being sniped at lol, I like it.

Yep.

I sat on a boat in the middle of Iron Lake and sniped people on the front streets of Blackwater.  I posted about trying this a couple weeks ago and now that I've tried it...well, I must say it really is like shooting fish in a barrel.

Imagine a first time player logging on to online hoping for a fun new experience, they spawn in and the world is completely empty. Nothing happening, no other players around to meet or interact with, just a single dark red blip on the other side of the map. It’s just not a good look.

LOL isn't that what people want with a private lobby a completely empty world. 😂

I dont know about lying, I assumed since the players tab showed everyones color and mine was blue that I was blue. But i dont go killing everyone for no reason like a b*tch though so I've had no reason to assume I wasn't blue. If you don't kill people in free roam stop worrying about it and *maybe* they'll fix it in an update.

Isn't killing everyone for no reason the most fun though?

Nope! I want a world with friends and rivals that play a similar way. Namely without those pathetic noob cards breaking our immersion.
