Best floating text?
So I made a map I'm really happy about, but the problem is that I made many floating texts,
1. Damage
2. XP gained per kill
3. Combo
4. Special stuff notification (from time to time)
And I noticed that in the kill, which occurs pretty fast, lots and lots of text appear, too much, and in case you also reach a good combo there's also the floating text writing what buff you just got... For me it's too much :D
So I was wondering, What do you think is important? Should I delete something? Should I change them somehow?

You're living only because it's illegal killing.
If it was me, I'd leave out the damage and XP gained per kill, unless it's critical. The damage or experience gained isn't really important IMO, since damage can be roughly estimated from hero's attack damage/spell descriptions and experience gained can be monitored from the experience bar. I'd add criticals though, in case the damage is triggered.

Yeah I have been thinking about removing the damage thing. Criticals isn't something I put or triggered. Tho the combo isn't something I was really counting on, because I'm not sure my system is really good (By system, I mean the growing floating text).

Minecraft. :D
Remove XP gained for sure, unless it is bonus XP from a combo or something. A damage display is not necessary, unless it is a critical strike. I prefer damage display, but I know some people don't like it. So for my map I simply made it an option to turn on/off. All it takes is a simple boolean condition check.

Godspeed to the sound of the pounding
What if you made them each float in a different direction with a different color? Would that make things clearer?

I'd say XP is unnecessary, and damage is nice but less essential than interface-type notifications such as "combo" and other information.

depending on your map type.

if it's RPG the best FT : using xp FT and damage FT;
if it's Battle arena or Hero Defe the best FT : using combo FT;
etc, etc, etc...

Well thank you all for posting, I've seen not many liked damage display, so I'll remove it, Combo I'll leave as it is, and special notifications I mean like when you reach a combo, it says above you "Extra Damage" or something like that. So notifiaction and combo i'll leave and the rest are out. Sounds good? :p

Oh that's what a special notification is. That would do fine. Too many floating texts can get annoying (Trolls & Elves).

    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol

    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
