    Add option for overlaying item locations on the hud

    Quake added some new maps. I'm a very veteran player and realize it'll take me quite some time to memorize the layout and where all the items spawn.

    Even after playing a map 20 times sometimes I don't know things like where Quad Damage spawns...

    then I realized this is what beginners go through every single game because every single map is new...

    I think the days of maps being adventures and secrets is over. There should be a setting to visually inform players where the items spawn

    Like, would the items show through the walls, or would there be some kind of radar? How exactly would it work?

    Would this be just during warmup or during the game?

    The problem with having it in-game is say in a duel you could see when the enemy picked up an item because you would see it disappear, even if you couldn't hear or were very far away/behind walls.

    I think it would be beneficiary if it was ONLY during warm up.

    I know I would learn the maps quicker.

    I'm talking about marking the location only

    Players need to know "red armor spawns here. quad damage spawns here. rocket launcher spawns here"

    Well I'm a beginner, and no thanks. Learning the item locations is part of the challenge and is a measure of capability.
