Description

Everyone that used tripwire detonated mines in ACE had this thought probably more than once: why does no visible tripwire show up?
Currently, we have an invisible line which may be good for attack (oh the people swearing upon their dead body :D) but what if you forget to tell your team-mates about the location? BOOM! TK and a lot of swearing...
So, is it possible to make a wire appear from placed mines, just like the rope when sliding down from a Blackhawk?

If this is possible I would like to see this added.

Concerning TK: Absolutly your fault since it is common practise to mark own mines, if you don´t do it or you have a lack of communication then don´t blame it on ACE

Concerning topic: would be nice to have it since enemy mines are hard to spot without that "indicator" and EOR/EOD would be easier.

But normally you use a fine wire. It's almost invisible to the naked eye and can only be clearly seen up close and while light it reflecting off it - like they use in the movies. :D

It's really hard to detect. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/12/06/iraq/main2234543.shtml <- Unless you have silly string. Haha. I'd try mark it like Huggy said - with an object, verbally tell people to stay away from that area, like cordon off that area. Minesweeper ftw. :D

Haha :D
Well then maybe just placing a small stake at the place where the tripwire should end?
That would be enough for bomb squads ;)

That's a good idea man, personally I don't care if you can actually see it easily with your naked eye or not. Just saying. :D

Actually yes just adding a stake in the ground where it ends would be munificent.
