I walk down a scary street at night. Not sure what horrors await me behind any corner. The atmosphere is perfect. I turn off the hud and don't use survivor sense to really immerse myself. As I move through the dark I'm suddenly alerted...by... my.. hud? Eyeball icons pop up over enemies heads. They warn me of the danger while also tagging enemies for me. I can't turn it off... I CAN'T TURN IT OFF! ..... I don't want to know where the monsters are. I don't want to know when I'm in danger. When I turned off the HUD, I want the ENTIRE hud off. Why are these icons still warning me of monsters? WHY CAN'T I TURN THEM OFF!? So as I wander in the darkness, spoiler after spoiler pops up. Monster over there.. and over there.. and over there. Oh wow, I wouldn't have seen him.. that would have been terrifying. ..... but that wonderful eyeball let me know well in advance. My pulse never climbing. No adrenaline rush. No sense of fear. These MANDATORY warnings ruin the game for me. I just want to turn them off so I can enjoy being in danger WITHOUT KNOWING IT! I want to suddenly hear the gurgles of a monster in the dark. Knowing that it means I've been spotted but having no clue where the monster is. I want panic to set in from being UNAWARE! However any time I actually am spotted. The game let's me know not only that I have been spotted, but who spotted me and where they are. Please please please, make it so when I turn off the hud... make it disable THE ENTIRE HUD. Please get rid of these eyeball icons on my screen. I don't use survivor sense but it doesn't matter. The game insists on warning me of danger. Constantly giving me information I DON'T WANT TO KNOW! It literally is the only thing standing between me and enjoying this game. Please make it optional, not mandatory. Thank you for your time. (This issue was posted on before however there was confusion regarding it. This is a repost to better clarify my issue and desire.) PS: This literally makes or breaks the game for me. If these warnings are never made optional. I just can't see myself enjoying the game. It will end up never being played all because of a simple hud element that could easily be made optional.
(THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT SURVIVOR SENSE, IT IS ABOUT THE THREAT DETECTION ICONS THAT APPEAR WHEN YOU ARE ABOUT TO BE SPOTTED) I absolutely love the look and feel of dying light. Unfortunately the game holds your hand no matter what difficulty you have it on. I waited so excited for "nightmare" mode and the ability to FINALLY turn off the HUD. Only to discover that the eyeball icons which warn you that you are about to be seen, still appear. I would say 75% of the fear of a monster comes from NOT knowing where it is. Unfortunately dying light does all it can to warn you of every little danger. Even if you turn off the hud for an absolutely beautiful game that feels immersive, the eyeball icons will pop up ruining that immersion and spoiling what could potentially be a scary situation. The enemies are so easy to avoid with all the warnings the game gives you. The game now has four difficulty settings and it holds your hand in all of them. So I beg you to please PPPPPLLLEASE get rid of the icons that let you know you are about to be seen. Also pllllllease consider AT LEAST putting a background timer on the x ray super power that lets you magically know where monsters are. I DON'T USE IT AT ALL THOUGH. Not that it matters with the icons warning me all the time anyway. Dying Light is an amazing game. I could see myself having tons of fun playing it if it didn't hold my hand like an infant. I waited so excited for this no HUD option and when I saw those eyeball icons still popping up, I wanted to cry. As it stands now, I will delete the game and try to find something else to do. Telling me where the monsters are literally kills all the fun for me. I don't mind having a warning OPTION, however that assist seems to be manditory no matter what difficulty you play on. It's amazing how something so little can literally ruin the fun. Please please please please please consider patching it so I can TURN OFF THREAT INDICATORS!!! If you do that, I will be addicted to an otherwise great game. If not, I probably won't ever play again. Thank you for your time. PS: This post is NOT about survivor sense!!! this post is about the threat detection icons. They are eyeball icons that appear over the heads of enemies when you are about to be spotted. These icons warn you of danger also while giving away enemy locations. They are NOT optional. You can NOT turn them off. Which is what this post is about. I do mention survivor sense because I believe it is a bit excessive. However that is not what this post is about and I do not use it.
