Just came across a chap in a game who appeared to be using a rather interesting mod.

Long story short, I spotted him & he instantly turned and fired directly at me (I had remained unspotted).

Is anyone aware of a mod that informs you where you have been spotted from? And, if so, is it within the bounds of the rules?

I realise this may sound a tad naïve to some, but I never play with mods so was, understandably, curious.

He knows where he got spotted from in a certain position?

Never seen or used anything like that in the modpack I use.

I know the player base has a low skill level, but to start considering shooting at tanks in a tank shooting game as suspicious...

 

In any case, error replay not found.

Based on the description, you spotted from a predictable place, most likely a bush that forms a good aiming point. You don't need a mod to guess that if you are spotted, that's where you are most likely spotted from. Alternatively, you were simply spotted and shot and killed before sixth sense activated.

This could easily be the case. I've blindfired and destroyed a few people like that. Sometimes even before Sixth Sense pops off and you see someone back up behind a bush, you can roughly guess when they'll poke again and shoot them presumably the moment they enter the bush.

 

Y'know the drill Erwin, a replay is in order.

There is nothing in the game that can tell you *where* you were spotted from. The information simply isn't sent to the client. Mods can only react to information that the client has.

Was hoping for an intelligent reply without sarcasm.

My bad.

Considering the question, lack of replay and decent description of the situation, and the seeming jump-to-conclusion must be haxxx and/or clickbait title; I'd say that particular brand of sarcasm could be marketed as a light product.
